RadControls Learning Guide give away

Do you want a nice printed copy of the RadControls for ASP.NET Learning Guide? In the run up to Q2, which is now only about a week away from general availability, I've decided to give away two copies of the Learning Guide (a $40 value) to two lucky blog readers. All you have to do to play is leave a comment on this blog post saying what you're most looking forward to in the Q2 release. Since I don't have the ability to see your email address when you add comments, and since I don't want to subject commenters to unnecessary spam exposure, simply include your name in your post and I'll run a follow-up post this Friday, September 14th announcing the two winners and how to collect the prize.

And that's it! Just a fun little giveaway contest to help you pass the time while you wait for the Q2 release. You must add your comment by midnight CST (GMT -6) on Thursday to be considered in the random selection and you only need to enter once (multiple entires will not be counted in the drawing). Have fun and let us know what you're looking forward to in Q2!

I am looking forward to the major improvement of RadGrid in Q2.

I am looking forward to Q2 release especially PDF feature of the RadGrid.

I'm most looking forward to the new Prometheus RadEditor. It's lighter and faster and will make all other html editors look like dinosaurs. ;-)

Definitely looking forward to the exporting features of the RadGrid. CSV and PDF are very important to our customers for reporting since we use the grid instead of telerik reporting (re: parameters).

I am looking forward to see the Prometheus RadScheduler.

Looking forward to the next major release of RAD Controls as usual.

I'm looking forward to getting a version of RadChart that isn't so riddled with bugs for multi-series bar graphs. They are impossible to produce by just using sql groupby clauses in the DAL because all series need to be completed by adding zero records.

Whops, I forgot.

I am looking forward to the new Prometheus framework, especially the new RadEditor. Also do you know Telerik will release a native build against .net 3.5 when is comes out?

I want to see everything else far behind.

I'm looking forward to taking another important step forward - towards the point when the Prometheus controls will be complete and ready to handle all aspects of my key projects. The new editor is a HUGE part of that.

But really - I'm most excited for what I've come to expect from Telerik. All that they've said and that little something extra that makes your (extremely geeky) day.

We're most looking forward to the improvements in RadGrid and AJAX improvements. We're in the process of re-designing our web UI due to be released in December and can't wait to use them.

I'm looking forward to the PDF export capability of the radGrid and also the enhancements to the skinning system and skin updates.

Gig'Em Aggies!

I'm definately looking forward to the new RadEditor, hoping to be it much faster loading. Also the new RadGrid will be something I'm looking forward to!

I'm looking forward to the new skins. This feature has come a long way since the original skins. In those days, every product had different skins and you couldn't count on every control having a particular skin available.

From there, it migrated to a consistant set of skins, but some controls still didn't look the same even when using the same skin. (ie RadTextBox and RadComboBox).

It has finally come full circle and I'm hoping the new version will finally bring complete consistancy to skinning.

One word: Everything!

Billy McCafferty said...

Looking forward to the new editor and (hopefully) to expanded grid totalling capabilities.

The most important thing for me is definitely the support for hierarchical data in the radGrid. This is very tricky part and all of the competitors pretty suck, so I hope that Telerik will save my day. Again.

we do lots of work with the radeditor so the new Prometheus RadEditor is tops on my list.

Gregory Varghese said...

I am looking forward to Q2 release! The new Prometheus RadEditor looks like it's going to destroy the competition.

Joshua said...

I am looking forward to Silverlight integration, all of the absolutely stunning Prometheus features. And of course, last but not least, my one true love, the Rad Grid. Excel and PDF exporting is going to be a godsend.

Dirk Devriendt said...

The new RadGrid export opions will remove a few items from my to do list (again :-))

Martin Plante said...

I'm definitely looking forward the RadEditor control.

vinod said...

RadGrid with PDF Export.

Todd Anglin said...

Hello everyone-

I am happy to see so much excitement for the Q2 release. Things are going very well and everything will be available early next week.

I've refrained from posting a lot on this thread since this isn't really a discussion area as much as a way to enter the contest, but I wanted to address a few questions people have raised:

- RadImage is not coming in Q2. Sorry. This was obviously announced a long time ago, but I want to make sure everyone has the right expectations.

- Telerik will release a native build against .NET 3.5 when it ships. More on how that will work when the time draws near.

- RadGrid can already export to Excel. It's adding export to CSV and PDF in the Q2 release.

And I think that's all for now. Be sure to check back on Friday when the winners are announced.

-Todd

Well my biggest interests at this point would be Promethius release of r.a.d.Scheduler with r.a.d.Editor being a close second, followed by r.a.d.Grid.

Craig Vitter said...

I am really interested in better integration with the ASP.NET Ajax framework, especially the validation controls. By the way, just started using the controls and they are fantastic.

Todd, I really hope you noticed my smiley after my RAD.Image wish. Don't take that asa demand, more like telerik HAVE the way to really surprise us, like believe the unbelievable ;)

But I add another stuff, export will support international characters, not only UTF-8.
