Hello Jill-Connie Lorentsen,
Thanks for the positive feedback.
Regarding your questions:
1. RadPlayer is just a demo application which shows the capabilities of the UI components that we produce. It is not a component that we support. Therefore, we do not put it in the Visual Studio Toolbox. In other words, our RadPlayer demo is just a simple wrapper of the Windows Media Player functionality, i.e. we do not provide extra features. Our aim is to show that you can build Windows Media Player UI by using our tools.
2. Producing a control which visualizes the amplitudes of an audio stream could be a good example of the utilization of our controls (the RadChart components for example). However, since it is more or less connected with processing of different audio formats, which we do not specialize in, we do not plan to implement such kind of components.
I hope that my answers are helpful.
Do not hesitate to get back to me in case of any further questions or feedback that you may have.
All the best,
the Telerik team
