What's New History

New Control: WPF OfficeNavigationBar

Meet the newest member of the Telerik UI for WPF suite: the OfficeNavigationBar. This is a powerful control for adding the Microsoft Outlook look and feel to your app’s navigation. Navigation items can contain text, image or a combination of text and image. The control features convenient peek functionality visualized as a customizable popup. It can host WPF controls, allowing users to get a tab preview or execute commands directly from the popup.
