  3. Custom resources add flexibility to your schedules and allow you to assign appointments to different users. This feature allows you to simultaneously assign same tasks to multiple users, and view appointments by resource group. The resources and the data sources for them can be defined easily in design-time.
  4. Inline and Advanced editing capabilities - RadEditor features AJAX enabled inline editing allowing you to add and modify your schedule tasks directly through the front-end. There a number of out-of-the box set of properties, such as recurrence, time slots, etc.
  5. Recurring appointments - RadScheduler features the ability to configure repeating appointments with ultimate flexibility. Use the editing advanced options to apply recurring scheduling patterns such as daily, weekly, monthly or set a range of recurrence from a date to date.
  6. Flexible server and client - side API - RadScheduler provides full control over the Server-side API allowing full customizability of each operation event. You can easily modify and customize every aspect of the Scheduler, as well as effortlessly integrate it to existing applications.
  7. RadScheduler is shipped with a set of skins that allow you to build slick interfaces. The skin can be easily switched using a single property.

  12. Height control options –Expand and Scroll options controlled via the OverflowBehavior property.
  13. Delete confirmation dialog

RadEditor “Prometheus” is the successor of the award winning RadEditor for ASP.NET, bringing a new era of unmatched speedy web behavior. Being the first Editor build on top of ASP.NET AJAX, the new RadEditor turns to be the fastest, most feature-rich and flexible Editor of its kind. Q2 2007 features:

  1. Unmatched loading speed –RadEditor Prometheus puts an end to the “functionality vs speed” trade-off. The unique “load as needed” processes in RadEditor will only load the code on client browsers for the features that are being used.
  2. Minimalist script size– Another factor for the industry-unique RadEditor is its highly compressed script size. The additional optimization of the script size results in swifter page rendering for a user experience with loading times that just pass unnoticed.
  3. New semantic rendering – The innovative lightweight skinning mechanism steps upon CSS Sprites for rendering Editor tools, resulting in tremendously optimized loading speed and simplified customization through simple CSS.
  4. Simplified inline tool declaration – RadEditor Prometheus features an intuitive way to populate tool lists through intellisense, eliminating the need to manually configure settings by writing code and scanning through XML files.
  5. Single-file, drag-and-drop deployment – RadEditor Prometheus enables you to deploy RadEditor with a single assembly file with no need to copy the RadControls folder to the root folder of your web-application.
  6. Full keyboard accessibility – Overcoming one of the major accessibility glitches that most rich-text editors face today, RadEditor is now a fully keyboard navigable component. Identically to the well-known Word® keyboard shortcuts, you can use arrows/tab to navigate, use up/down to expand and Enter to select a value.
  7. Multi-mode skinning on a single page - This feature of RadEditor Prometheus allows for placing multiple Editors with different skins on the same page. This, along with the advanced skinning mechanism, ensures a maximum visual blend to cover even the most demanding design schemes.

The new version of RadChart “Prometheus” comes with a number of novel features and enhancements delivering rich functionality and data presentation capabilities. Its innovative rendering engine provides remarkable performance quality and polished images, enhancing the overall user experience. RadChart introduces also:

  1. YAxis supporting logarithmic scaling
  2. A new CandleStick financial chart
  3. Support for spline curve areas. The curve behaves the same way the normal spline curve does, but also offers the possibility to fill the belonging area.
  4. RadChart now features a so-called "strict mode" for bar series. All XValues will be respected and bars will be positioned according to their XValues. If, however, you don't have any series items with XValues then RadChart will resume standard sequential ordering of each item.
  5. Support for empty values approximation. If your dataset is missing a value RadChart can approximate it for you.
  6. Scalebreaks allowing you to "break off" large chunks of the axis so that graphs with great amplitudes are easier to read.
  7. New intelligent labels dramatically increasing readability in very busy charts. The charting engine now supports newline in all chart labels.
  8. The new Marked Zones now provide another option for chart customization
