Using Delegate Methods to “Broadcast” data to your Child Controls

DelegateMethods

  I thought I’d make available an interesting piece of code that came about recently because I was using a Telerik Radstrip to display information that was all based on a single piece of data, in that case a Fiscal Year.  I decided to remove the Telerik aspect of this tutorial to make it available to a much broader audience but the theory remains. In this scenario, we have a combobox that’s filled with all […]

Using the Telerik RadComoBox ItemsRequested to create an autocomplete

Telerik Ajax

  I’ve been using the Telerik Ajax controls for about a year and a half now and I’m still regularly blown away by the work these controls save me every time I use them.  Today I thought I’d look at the radcombox and the ItemsRequested event.  Essentially, this event allows you to create an AutoComplete control without implementing a web service (see http://everymanprogrammer.com/index.php/autocomplete-dropdown-made-easy-a-beginners-tutorial/ ).   Getting Started Obviously you’ll need a copy of the latest Telerik […]

Using the RadComboBox with a Templated Layout

Telerik Ajax

So I thought I would just change gears here a little and spend some time with a much overlooked control.  The RadComboBox is a very complex piece of kit but tends to be overlooked because its ‘just a dropdown’.  In this article I want to touch on just one of the many design capabilities of the RadComboBox, that of the ItemTemplate. Getting Started For this example, I want to assemble a dropdown with the names […]
