  • Implementing lazy loading – loading data only when it is requested
  • Minimizing memory usage, robust code free from memory leaks

  • Seamless integration with your Visual Studio Toolbox for quick drag and drop usage

Document Processing

Take advantage of the RadSpreadProcessing, RadSpreadStreamProcessing, RadWordsProcessing, RadPdfProcessing and libraries, which enable the processing of the most common text, spreadsheet, and PDF file formats without having Microsoft Office or other third-party libraries installed. Now application users can create, load and modify documents in a variety of formats including:

  • DOCX
  • RTF
  • TXT
  • HTML
  • PDF
  • XLSX
  • CSV
  • Tab-delimited

Enable your application to seamlessly export and import documents or convert them from one format to another. In addition, the zip library allows you to create and modify archives with variety of compression mechanisms supported, so you can transfer data faster and secure.


MVVM Support

Software development is made easier with the ability to drag-and-drop a complex control from our toolbox, wire up a few events, receive quick functionality, and then move on to the next work item. Those functionalities, however, do not guarantee that the software created is well structured, easily extensible, and unit testable. MVVM resolves those issues. Telerik UI for Silverlight fully supports MVVM, allowing you to create reliable, well-structured and easily maintainable applications.

Touch Support

The built-in touch support and the Windows8Touch theme make your Telerik UI for Silverlight powered applications run smoothly on a touch device.

Brightstar traditionally used third party controls for Rapid Application Development. When Brightstar decided to go ahead with developing Line of Business Application using Silverlight, we did a research on available third party controls, and found that Telerik UI for Silverlight was the easiest, and best suite available in the market. It is flexible, fast, offers ease of development and great support! Also, it's integration with Visual Studio 2010 is seamless.

Telerik UI for Silverlight suite is really powerful and highly customizable. It speeds up new features development and allows me to create a "shining" rich web application. All the components are well documented, and there are a lot of examples and demos that provide a good overview of the components' capabilities. I really like them.

My developer team has been using the Telerik control suite for over a year now on an internal application. From day 1, we were very impressed by the incredible feature-set, the ease of use and the great online tutorials and code examples. More recently, we have started doing a lot of client-side development, and again we are truly impressed. For people who are willing to spend the time developing deep code, I would recommend Telerik hands down.
