RadControls for Silverlight Beta Revealed – Download Now

July 26, 2007

Telerik have released its RadControls for Silverlight Beta product.

Telerik components suite for Silverlight received another boost with the official release of RadControls for Silverlight Beta. RadControls for Silverlight Beta includes five components, namely 5 fundamental building blocks (Button, Image, Media, Label, CustomElement) and 3 composite controls (MediaPlayer, StripLayoutPanel and Cube).

Developers can use Telerik Silverlight controls in their own projects and get acquainted with the notion of control-based development originally missing in the Silverlight 1.0 framework. All RadControls are fully customizable through themes. We ship several predefined themes for each control and provide the option to further customize them with Microsoft Expression Blend. RadControls for Silverlight require no JavaScript and XAML coding.

Silverlight Beta is distributed with free developer license to all community members who have a valid Telerik Client.net account.
