    Telerik, a pioneer in Silverlight UI components, released three of its Silverlight controls, Book, Gauge and TileView, for free. The Free Controls feature the same full functionality as their commercial counterparts and are absolutely customizable to fit in applications not built with the Telerik RadControls for Silverlight.

    The first component of the free pack, the Telerik Book, allows users to flip the Book’s pages as if they were browsing a real book. The control offers option for hard covers, smooth flip animations for better user experience and support for UI virtualization.

    The Telerik Gauge for Silverlight offers rich assortment of circular, linear and numeric gauge types and rich customization capabilities that provide developers in need of graphical indicators with the freedom to build the exact dynamic data visualization tool that they need.

    The free Silverlight TileView allows users to interactively browse through the different panes containing rich information by expanding, collapsing or rearranging panes. The control provides animations out of the box, drag-and-drop rearrangement of its tiles, as well as full control over the different tile states. 

    The Free Controls for Silverlight are natively built on top of Silverlight 4. They fully support Expression Blend, Visual Studio 2010 and SharePoint 2010 and come with their default built-in Office Black theme.

    By using Microsoft Pivot and the Pauthor open source libraries, Tim Greenfield has created a tool that lets you produce a Pivot of all your photos on your hard disk.

    Source: Programmer Payback

    As an amateur photographer, I have always kept my eyes open for new tools to help me search, sort, filter, and view my own photos. Microsoft Pivot (a cool new technology that lets you easily view, search, and filter data using deep zoom) seemed like a natural and obvious fit for the task.

    Therefore, using Microsoft Pivot and the Pauthor open source libraries, I created a tool that helps users create a pivot collection from the photos on their hard drive and supports filtering by all the nifty meta data embedded in those files such as shutter speed, aperture, film speed, and focal length.

  • Loading Metadata for Microsoft Controls

    In his blogpost Karl Shifflett continues his Extensibility Series, explaining how to locate and load metadata for controls you did not author.

    I have received several requests for information on loading metadata for WPF & Silverlight controls shipped by Microsoft.  For example, a developer wanted to add a design time context menu to a Button control but couldn’t figure out how to add the required metadata.

    In my previous post I covered the locating and loading of metadata for custom controls that you authored. 

    In this post I’ll cover how to locate and load metadata for controls that you were not the author for.

    It is official – Telerik RadControls for Silverlight3 are here with the latest 2009 Q2 SP1 release. We did our best to take advantage of all new and exciting features from the latest version of the platform. RadControls now offer a new theming mechanism and you can clearly see the difference when you open our demo examples in Blend. We also added support for .NET RIA Services for all data-bound Telerik Silverlight 3 controls. Check the codeless binding of RadgridView to DomainDataSource to see how it works. The next exciting additions are validation for all input controls and out of browser support so now you can run all Telerik RadControls for Silverlight right on your desktop.

    Of course the Service Pack ships a lot of bug fixes and enhancements but stay tuned for 2009 Q3 release  – there is much more to come.

    One important announcement is that with the introduction of Silverlight 3 we will discontinue the future support for our Silverlight 2 controls. With Q2 2009 SP1 we are shipping only DLLs for Silverlight 2.

    The control supports Day, Week and Month views for flexible display of appointments and tasks, which can be further customized via the rich API.

  • A comprehensive list to Silverlight Controls for developers

    Tim Heuer has posted a comprehensive list to Silverlight Controls for developers.

    I’ve written a few times about some of the controls that have been provided by organizations like Telerik and ComponentOne.  I figured it would be a good idea to do a larger dump of those that I’m aware of (and hope you add comments to point me to others so I can amend this list) and help make you aware of them as well.  There are a ton of great resources out there for Silverlight developers and I’m always impressed how our developer partners are extending our platforms to make tools for developers (and most of the time better than we do :-)).

    Ning Zhang has a post in which he describes controls in Silverlight 2, Silverlight 2 SDK, and Silverlight Toolkit December 2008 Release, and their designer support.


    Based on their shipping vehicles, there are three types of Silverlight controls from Microsoft: runtime controls, SDK controls, and Toolkit controls. Designer support for runtime and SDK controls are spread over Visual Studio, Blend, and Silverlight SDK; while designer support for Toolkit controls are fully implemented by design assemblies in the Toolkit, using designers’ extensibility framework.

    In this “How to” Visual WebGui tutorial we are going to create WatermarkTextBox  control for a Visual WebGui Silverlight application.

    This topic assumes that you have some basic knowledge of Visual WebGui and Its also recommended that you read the “How to create a Visual WebGui Application” artical.

    The WatermarkTextBox is a plain TextBox control, with one added feature of showing a default text when no content was entered or when the content was deleted.

    The first thing we’ll need to do is open visual studio and create a new Visual WebGui Silverlight Application.
