    I've just been informed about the Telerik range of products and was directed towards the Silverlight demo on your site. I was somewhat impressed with the range of GUI controls that are available and have been trying to get to grips with them.

    Whilst viewing the range of controls, there are a couple that are used in the demo but appear not to be part of the library and was wondering if this is achievable with any of the available controls: These are:
        1. When you click on a new demonstration of a control, you have the appearance of an animated "Please wait" loading dialog box. Can you tell me how that is achieved.
        2. Also when you click on a new demonstration of the control - the window shrinks then the next one slides in and expands to consume the previous windows space (ditto with the the way the windows "flips" over when you click on the "View Code" button)- once again how is this done and is it achievable using the Telerick controls.

    Thanks in advance for any assistance on this.

    Hi Dwight,

    I saw that you asked us to ignore your support ticket with the same text, but I will answer anyway, in case someone else has the same question:
    1) The "Please wait" box is a simple panel, that contains custom animation. It is just displayed when there is a time consuming operation currently in progress. The examples for each control are in different XAP files and we display the box while we are downloading the XAP.

    2) The animations while changing the examples and while switching to view code are custom transitions for RadNavigation. We can provide more information about how to achieve it if you decide to use it.

    We plan to publicly release the source code of our examples' framework, the so called QuickStart, in the near future, most probably near the Q3 release, in the beginning of the winter.

    I would also be very interested in having access to the source code for the examples framework. Please consider releasing it sooner! I think many users would find this a useful study on how to apply good design.
