Inheritance in XAML Styles


Style inheritance in XAML? Sounds funny? No. If we have inheritance in classes, CSS styles; then why not in XAML styles? There are many such occasions when we need to copy the same style in multiple templates/styles of a control. In this post, we will learn how to use a single piece of style and use it in other place to inherit the common styling. If you are using XAMLs excessively, this might be a very good topic for you. If you are a XAML designer and/or building a lot of...

Complete XAML Solution For SelectAll In Datagrid


Over the period of time lot of asks and solutions were made for selectall selector for DataGrid. However, I failed to see a solution which is completely built on XAML. When my friend approached me, I thought that I will write my own. The idea is to have a template column with a separate definition for the header and the rows. To avoid using code behind for the solution, I decided to use two data templates for the header and the row items.

Incremental loading with RadDataGrid in your Windows 8.1 XAML app


Fast and fluid experience is one of the most important characteristics of a Windows 8 application. However, when dealing with large amount of data, it is not always possible to get the entire data set downloaded and visualized in a fast and fluid manner. Such scenarios call for a more incremental (sequential) data loading approach and with our Q3 2013 release RadDataGrid makes this task easy to implement.

Grouping with the GridView Control - Windows Store Apps (XAML)


Representing data within Windows Store apps, grouping the data often is a very useful and appealing option. Visual Studio also offers a ready to use template to display grouped data by using the GridView control. Other than the default look that's given by the Visual Studio template, there are nearly endless possibilities. This article gives information on the templates of the GridView control and how they can be used to change the look of grouping data.

Windows Store apps in HTML and XAML: Organize your UI layer


Having a deep knowledge of your toolset, when you start a new application from scratch, does not necessarily mean you are able to develop rapidly and effectively. The biggest problems, infact, do not come from the missing knowledge of a feature, that you can easily fill with a short search on the Internet, but from the grow of complexity of your application when you start putting things together without knowing exactly how you can better organize them to avoid the exponential increase of entropy. The first and much more important aspect is the architectural pattern, made of a set of classes that collaborate together, separating responsabilities between different actors in the UI layer. Be aware that I'm not speaking about the organization of the application tiers, usually separated in UI, Business Logic and Data but about a separation which is completely internal at the UI layer.

#VisualStudio 2013 Improvements - better commenting in XAML


Microsoft Visual Studio 2013 RC (Release Candidate) is already there and I hope, many of you already downloaded it and started exploring the new features and enhancements part of the release candidate. Visual Studio 2013 provides us a better way to handle XAML pages. In this blog post, we will learn the new feature introduced to better commenting XAML codes inside Visual Studio 2013 IDE. You will definitely like it. In Visual Studio 2012 or earlier versions while working in the XAML pages, it was not so easy to comment a block of XAML code having one or more commented block. In such case, we had to either remove those commented blocks first or find out the individual section to comment it. If you already worked with XAML codes, you will understand how difficult it is. But in Visual Studio 2013, Microsoft improved the editor to keep away the frustration of the XAML designers commenting out the code block. Have a look into the below video to know how easy it is...

XamDockManager - Data Binding ContentPanes with MVVM


If you are using the Infragistics xamDockManager control and using MVVM to compose your views, then you have probably asked yourself the question, "How do I data bind a collection of objects, which represent my Views, from my ViewModel to various areas of the xamDockManager?". You are asking yourself this question because the xamDockManager doesn't support this data binding out of the box. The good news is that this is relatively easy to accomplish. You just have to write a little code. As with most solutions, there are always more than one way to solve a problem. There are actually solutions to this specific problem that have already been posted. For example, this post titled "ItemsSource for xamDockManager", provides an alternative to the solution I am going to show you. So why am I showing you another approach? Well, I prefer something a little more simple and straight forward. You can choose which solution you prefer.

Presentation Patterns for XAML based Applications


In the recent years, a variety of different patterns, like MVVM/MVC and Command, have established themselves for the development of user interface oriented applications and been put to good use. This article describes specialized design patterns, which can be of use in user interface development of XAML based applications. By means of an example library, several application examples from everyday life will be used to demonstrate these design patterns and to give an idea, how these can be put into code for reusable components. Aside from the benefits of increasing reuse, such design patterns help to reduce the complexity of a system. They support the design process for future development because they advocate the common understanding of the involved designers. During implementation of the design patterns, a variety of aspects in regard to communications, performance, resource management and composite development for WPF/Silverlight/Windows Phone 7 had to be considered. The following areas will be addressed:

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...

How to apply a background to a Panorama using binding


In the next few days I'm going to publish a new application called Movies Tracker, which can be used to keep track of the movies you've already seen or that you would like to see. The application is totally built with the MVVM pattern, using Caliburn Micro as framework. The application makes great use of the Panorama control: in the main page, I use it to display different movies categories; in the movie detail, I use it to display different information about the movie (the poster, the cast, the story, etc.). To give to the application a better look and feel, I've decided to use as a background of every Panorama an image taken from the movie, kindly provided by The Movie Database.

XAML-SDK solutions and projects


Since the official Q1 2013 release of RadControls for Silverlight and WPF we introduced a new online resource, the XAML GitHub repository. You may ask "Why did you chose GitHub as the place for the SDK?" and the answer is simple. Firstly because GitHub has one of the largest software open source communities possibly the largest and the idea behind our online SDK repository is that it is an open source project. Secondly because we believe that most programmers are familiar with the GitHub platform and the learning curve on how to operate with the repository will not be too steep.

How to create custom XMLNS namespaces to keep your XAML clean?


XAML namespace is an extension of XML namespace and conventionally written as "xmlns" in XAML pages. We use it on all XAML pages in Silverlight, Windows Phone, Windows 8, WPF related technologies to better reference assemblies and namespaces. In this post we will learn more about this XMLNS namespace and the way to customize it for a cleaner XAML page. Interested to know it? Continue reading and share your feedback about the post. What is a XAML Namespace? Let us first know a little about XAML namespace syntax, the convention of using URIs as namespace identifiers and the prefixes to provide a meaningful reference to single or multiple namespaces for the same source. You can create a XAML namespace by providing a series of tokens or a custom URL that suits your convention. The syntax that the token based xmlns uses, has the following token parts: clr-namespace: The namespace declared within the assembly that exposes public types as...

Knockout - What MVVM should have been like in XAML


I've not got a lot of JavaScript programming experience, but I've been learning a bit recently, and decided to try knockout.js. I was pleasantly surprised at how quickly I was able to pick it up. In part this is because it follows a MVVM approach very similar to what I am used to with WPF. I've blogged a three-part MVVM tutorial here before as well as occasionally expressing my frustrations with MVVM. So I was interested to see what the MVVM story is like for Javascript developers. What I wasn't expecting, was to find that MVVM in JavaScript using knockout.js is a much nicer experience than I was used to with XAML + C#. In this post I'll run through a few reasons why I was so impressed with knockout.
