Hi,

I think you should add an example of your Minimize Zone feature to your online examples. This is a very cool feature, so why not show it off?

Cheers,
Brad

Hello Albert,

 Thank you for your feedback on the case. This is not a major feature of the control and we are trying to keep our online demos to a manageable number. Too many are likely to cause confusion and an information overload for people that are looking to examine the main features of controls and with the current count well above 1000 this can take a lot of time.


Kind regards,

I still think it's a great feature!

Clearly not everyone has good taste; or maybe there should be a "Cool Features" section to the documentation?

Cheers,
Brad

Of all the reasons why having a large number of live demos may be a potential problem, "customer confusion" would be at the bottom of the list, especially since that "problem" is easily resolved by having a well thought out and efficiently designed UI for your demos. The new demos site, while requiring a fair bit more clicking and scrolling compared to the old site, still has plenty of room for expansion, IMO. That being said, I think the "real" reason you are hesitant to create more demos, and likely regret creating some of the ones you have,  is this adds extra load on your team whenever you make upgrades. You need to make sure you aren't breaking your own site, which would be both annoying and embarrassing. So, this is a legitimate concern. Other than wishing Telerik would be more up front about these sorts of things instead of making far-fetched excuses like "customer confusion" or, worse yet, bringing up the dreaded "database" where ideas go to die, I don't have a big problem with you guys trying to limit your online demos. I would say, thought, that the online demos are often the first place I look when I have a question or am looking to implement some sort of functionality. In that regard, being able to find what one is looking for there would make it much less likely for people to submit tickets or make posts on forum threads. I would think limiting this sort of interaction would free up Telerik resources for other things and could counterbalance the inherent complexities of having more demos. As in all things, I guess a balance must be struck.

Hi guys,

Thank you for sharing your opinion with us. I do agree that demos can be a valuable resource, yet in the same time they need to be simple enough for other people to start examining the controls.

This is why we are starting work on an SDK for the RadContorls for ASP.NET AJAX that will start hosting various examples as well to help developers. If you have ideas, suggestions or samples you would like to see available there - do let us know. It is still in development and having our customers' feedback can help us make it more valuable for all.
