Telerik Releases New Controls for Silverlight 3 and WPF

Telerik, a vendor of development tools and UI components for .NET, announced the Beta release of 10 new controls for Silverlight 3 and WPF, including RadRibbonBar, RadDocking for WPF, RadTileView, and RadOutlookBar.

The RadRibbonBar lets developers organize the navigation functionality of their applications into a single compact toolbar control without doing any coding. RadDocking for WPF lets Telerik clients achieve a docking system like the one in Microsoft Visual Studio 2008. The RadTileView control lets developers easily create an immersive browsing experience and customized dashboards for web and desktop. And the RadOutlookBar control lets developers deliver Outlook's navigational bar to their applications.

RadControls for Silverlight 3 features more than 30 advanced UI components to provide a toolset for building line-of-business Silverlight applications. The suite features the first commercial 3D chart for Silverlight, binding to .NET RIA Services, Silverlight 3 native validation, and out-of-browser support. Almost all Silverlight controls have a WPF counterpart, enabling developers to build mirror web and desktop applications with identical UIs much more easily. The Beta release of RadControls for Silverlight also features new RadCoverFlow, RadSplitButton, RadDropDownButton, RadRadioButton and RadButton controls.

RadControls for WPF is a WPF toolset. In addition to the new RadDocking, RadOutlookBar, and RadTileView controls, the toolset enhances existing controls, including RadScheduler, RadChart, RadGauge, and others.
