New Controls

RadContextMenu

RadContextMenu

Have you confronted the challenge to have to build a very complicated custom site menu system, while still keeping it simple for the end user? It’s easy to save space and provide additional commands or features with RadContext . The control is fully customizable, allowing you to create anything your imagination can conceive while keeping all advanced menu functionalities, such as: hierarchical Databinding, rich programming model, boundary detection and many more.

RadDragAndDropManager

RadDragAndDropManager

What if you can empower your end users to interact with different elements of the website’s layout? This can be easily achieved through our Drag & Drop Framework, which allows users to drag any element and drop it onto any other element. The associated events allow users to completely handle the Drag & Drop process, thus easily building complex and flexible business logic. Furthermore the Framework provides visual cues that guide the user.

RadNavigation

RadNavigation

RadNavigation is a unique custom framework developed by Telerik, which is not provided in the standard Microsoft toolset. It enables the navigation within your application by providing API for navigating through the pages. To provide even better user experience, RadNavigation also features built-in animations to make the page transition smoother, thus enriching the UI and usability of your web applications. Solve the problem of navigating through the pages within a website with Telerik Navigation Framework.

RadCoverFlow

RadCoverFlow turns navigation through a media collection into a dazzling visual experience. You are free to configure the items’ reflection and camera position as well as to customize the navigation template. You need real 3D rotation – no problem, RadCoverFlow uses real 3D transitions to navigate through the items. Let your end users enjoy browsing through their images or videos.

New Skins

New Vista skin

We included a new Vista skin for all controls
We also included several color variations of the Summer skin. Check a live demo here.

New Style Building mechanism

We included different color variations of the Summer skin achieved by using the newly included style-building mechanism that allows you to easily customize the color scheme of any of the predefined skin. You can modify not only an existing theme, but you can entirely change the skin by using the common resources provided by Telerik. The common resources represent brushes that are applied to the different elements of RadControls. This enables you to change the color scheme and keep the consistency of the changed skin. Check a live demohere.

Changes

RadTabControl

RadTabControl

TabControl now overrides the event methods (GotFOcus, LostFocus, KeyUp, KeyDown, etc.) instead of signing up for events.
