I would like to use the RadWindow for an about box.  I cannot find documentation on how to populate the window with controls or text.  Is there an documentation or samples for RadWindow ?

Hi Bob,

You can see how to use RadWindow from our online examples site:
http://www.telerik.com/demos/silverlight/#Examples/Window/FirstLook

Basically - everything you place between the <RadWindow opening and closing tags will be displayed in the window:
    <telerik:RadWindow x:Name="window" Header="RadWindow" WindowStartupLocation="CenterParent" TopOffset="-50" WindowAnimation="OnShow">  
            <Image Source="../../Common/Images/RadWindow/Window.png"/>          
    </telerik:RadWindow> 

Let us know if you have any other questions.

Best Regards,

Thank you for the quick reply.  I need to be able to add items programatically from the code behind.  I tried adding a stack panel to the comments as well as a contentcontrol that had the stack panel added to it.  I both cases I had a number of abends.  How does one access the children of the Window via the code behind ?

I think I can see how to do this.  I created the window in the xaml and added a child element of type StackPanel.  In the code behind I can now add items to the stack panel.  I just don't seem to be able to completely build the control in the code behind which would be the preference.

Hi Bob,

you need to set the Content property of RadWindow. This is a sample code:
RadWindow window = new RadWindow();  
Image img = new Image();  
img.Source = new BitmapImage(new Uri(@"Window.png", UriKind.RelativeOrAbsolute));  
window.Content = img;  
 

Basically the RadWindow is a HeaderedContentControl, which means that you can set any content you like to its Content property (including StackPanel). More info on HeaderedContentControls is available here:
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/system.windows.controls.headeredcontentcontrol.aspx
