Telerik UI for WPF
March 09, 2010
Common for all Controls:
Q1 2010 release is focused on strengthening 3 main aspects of RadControls for WPF: ensuring first-class performance for all data-centric controls through various techniques, enhancing and polishing RadControls themes and providing highly advanced, enterprise-level features, especially for the data visualization controls.
All RadControls skins now get a major facelift for greater consistency and appeal across skin elements such as rows, buttons, headers, selected/disabled states, etc. Achieving these results required some changes in the XAML that which might lead led to some breaking changes in the themes. This would affect mostly the users who have already developed custom themes based on our last offering. We will assist all our customers in the migration process to make sure that everyone is satisfied with the end-result.
RadControls for WPF provide support for Visual Studio 2010 RC, offering toolbox support, property browsing and WYSIWYG preview for all controls. Telerik is working closely with Microsoft to ensure best practices are followed and that we provide the most complete design experience, allowing you to develop in Visual Studio 2010 and style your controls in Expression Blend with ease.
The brad brand new RadMap for WPF visualizes rich geographical information, zooming and panning smoothly to any corner of the earth. If you want to give geographical context to your data – that’s easy. RadMap provides support out-of-the-box for BingMap and OpenStreetMap providers and allows you to overlay the imagery data with adding any elements or shape either manually or through the built-in data binding functionalitys to it. The control supports items virtualization through web services to guarantee blazing fast performance. RadMap also provides some more advanced features such as KML support, search, routing, and geocoding that enable the control to cover a broad range of data visualization scenarios.
A creative Book “page turning” component allows users to flip the Book’s pages as if they are browsing a real book. The flip animations are smooth for better user experience. You can embed other controls in RadBook for WPF, such as Treeview for navigation or even a Media Player.
This new control will allow you to create transition animations that will appear upon changing the content of the control. It will also provide an extended animation framework that can be used to customize the animations of existing controls, such as Menu, ComboBox, Docking, etc., allowing you to provide a richer look and feel to your RIA with minimal effort. The Transition control will be officially released with Q2 2010. Till then the control will be enhanced and further improved during Q1. We will be regularly blogging on its development progress so that we can receive valuable feedback and provide the best result in the end.
