    Hi  All,

    I am  looking for Widget framework capability in Silverlight like in Telerik.
    demos.telerik.com/.../DefaultCS.aspx
    or
    http://www.codeplex.com/dropthings/

    Do you know of there any way to do this in solution or you fmilier with any componay control that implement widget framework for Silverlight?

    Thanks,
    Kingsley

    PS I am not looking at using Silverlight in Sharepoint MOSS, i am looking at strictly within aspnet hosting a silverlight application.

    Hi Valentin,
    thanks but in the mean time i need to implement some functionality that is similar...is it possible for me to use a RadWindow and radDocking ? to do this what i am trying to do is to :
    have a number of SL controls such as Radcharts, radGridviews and RadGuages
    within  container controls such as a stackpanel or a grid and then have that grid in a Radwindow and then have the Radwindow in a Raddocking control, since i want to use the radwindow as a floating control i can minimize maximize, float e.t.c and then use the capabilities of the RadDock to save the state of the controls on the screen...
    the issue i have is that i cant seem to add the RadWindow inside of the RadDocking control,
    since it is not good practice to declare RadWindow in XAML as it is not logical to be part of the visual tree.so ideally i would like to create RadWindow in c# code-behind and add it to my RadDocking control which i had initially created in xaml but would now like to create in C# is there a way of doing this if so can you please post a sample ?  as it is super urgent!
    thanks
    Kingsley

    Hi Kingsley Magnus-Eweka,

    Unfortunately this is not possible. You can use the RadDocking control only for the moment that has a similar behavior.

    Hi Tilak M,

    We do not provide such controls at the moment. I will consider your question as a feature request and I will log it in our backlog list for further consideration.

    Has there been an update on this?  I would like to know the same question.  What controls would be appropriate to allow for drag and drop widgets using Telerik Silverlight controls.

    Thanks,

    Hi there,

    For the time being we offer RadDocking and RadTileVIew controls that might be used for that purpose. You can see the demos at:
    http://demos.telerik.com/silverlight/#Docking/FirstLook
    http://demos.telerik.com/silverlight/#TileView/FirstLook

    I hope this helps.

    Hello Vijay,

    Currently we do not provide widget controls and such are not included in our immediate plans.
