Meet CloudCalendar - the newest member of Cloud Controls for Windows Phone

Since the Q3 Beta Release of RadControls for Windows Phone, the cloud suite has a new member: RadCloudCalendar. This is a composite component which provides (so far) three different views: Calendar, Agenda and Appointment. These views resemble the native calendar experience from Windows Phone and provide appointment management options out of the box.

30 Days of TDD – Day Nine – Refactoring Basics

As time goes on in any software development project you'll no doubt find inefficiencies in your code that you would like to remove.

And you will still occasionally find code that you've written in the past that will make you ask "What was I thinking when I did that?!" When these situations arrive, it's time to look at refactoring your code.

30 Days of TDD – Day Ten – More Refactoring and NUnit Features

In the last post I showed you how from time to time it is necessary to change our code to enhance readability, make maintenance easier or to optimize the codes performance. This practice is called "Refactoring." Normally making these kinds of changes can be a nerve-wracking experience for developers as they can't be certain that their changes aren't breaking something else. However, having a suite of unit tests the exercise your business code enables you to refactor your code without worry; as long as your tests pass you know that your code still satisfies your business needs. In addition to our code, sometimes our unit tests themselves need some refactoring. This post explains how to refactor your unit tests and demonstrates a few NUnit features that will help us with this endeavor.

30 Days of TDD: Day Two – A Review of Object Oriented Principals

In today's post I'll be doing a quick review of principals of Object Oriented Programming (OOP). This post will help frame future posts in this series by ensuring that we are all on the same page in terms of our understanding of software development. Even if you are seasoned developer I recommend that you at least read the section on Polymorphism and Interfaces as these topics are widely misunderstood and are crucial to building good TDD practices.

Bring Your Reports to Life with Telerik Report Designer

In my last blog post, I outlined how to add interactivity to your Telerik Reports using Visual Studio. In this blog post I want to switch gears a little bit and outline how to accomplish the same results using Telerik Report Designer. Adding interactivity to the graphs in your report can give users additional perspective of the data being presented as well as provides for a more engaging user experience. First I'll demonstrate the ability to automatically generate expansion and collapsing of a parent/child relationship through actions on the category axis. Next I'll show you how to add an action to the series of a bar chart to achieve a report drill-through.

Adding Dynamic Data to apps with the SQLite Plugin

I'll admit it, backend development can occasionally be intimidating. Often times frontend developers are more concerned with the UI or UX of their web site or app and leave the heavy data lifting to the backend developers. However, in a short amount of time I'm going to show you how you can leverage the power of a relational database inside your hybrid mobile app. If the words "database" or "SQL" strike fear into your heart, or even if you are somewhat comfortable in this realm, this is the blog post for you. Databases are the foundation of every data-driven app out there. And while you can certainly write an amazing app without knowing any SQL, I'm here to show you how you can simply and easily set up and manage a lightweight, but very powerful, database within your own hybrid mobile app using the Cordova SQLite plugin.

How to Export content from RadRichTextBox to a variety of formats in WPF or Silverlight

Telerik's RadRichTextBox control allows you to display rich text content in your Silverlight application. It can hold formatted text, images, tables, hyperlinks etc. to provide a visual look like Microsoft Word document. To use a simple RadRichTextBox control, you will need reference to the following Telerik assemblies: Telerik.Windows.Controls, Telerik.Windows.Data and Telerik.Windows.Documents in your WPF/Silverlight project. The control library not only allows you to display rich text content, but also helps you to export the same to different file formats so that you can save it to file or database. I was working on an application which has the Microsoft Word kind functionality and recently the client asked to add functionality to export the content to HTML, PDF, DOCX format in addition to save it in the database as an image. Telerik library helped me a lot to implement the same in that application with just a few lines of code. The library already exposed different APIs to handle different file formats in order to export the content. In this article I will cover how the Telerik's RadRichTextBox helped me exporting the rich text content added by user to a file of various formats like HTML, PDF, RTF, DOCX, XAML and TXT.

Today in this post we will learn how to remove the comma separator from the Telerik's RadNumericUpDown control. You can see a screenshot below where the Numeric input box uses the comma separator by default (left) and another Numeric input box which does not use any separator (right). Let's start implementing the same for our demo. Let's create a Behavior of type RadNumericUpDown control which we will be able to plug into the Numeric UpDown control wherever we need it.

How to work with Telerik RadAutoCompleteBox (Silverlight & WP)

Developers always try to provide the user a easiest way to represent the data irrespective of the technology that has been used. Hence, for a huge collection of data, generally we provide "AutoComplete TextBox" to the user instead of ComboBox or ListBox. The reason behind this is to provide searchable and filterable UI to the user for easy access. Today in this post, we will learn how to use the Telerik's RadAutoCompleteBox in both Silverlight and Windows Phone. More or less we all know about AutoCompleteBox and how it works. But in this post, we will see the Telerik's RadControls library to use the AutoCompleteBox and the difference between Silverlight and Windows Phone APIs. Telerik's RadAutoCompleteBox is present in the "Telerik.Windows.Controls.Input.dll" under the "Telerik.Windows.Controls" namespace and provides the user easy way to access the data in a searchable and filterable mode. If you are willing to use the control, you must have the required...
