Telerik Watch Minute: Telerik drag and drop manager for Silverlight

In this special edition of Telerik Watch Minute shot last week at DevConnections, I took a minute to talk with Miroslav Paskov from the Telerik Silverlight Team. Miroslav is one of the developers responsible for creating the new RadDragAndDropManager found in the RadControls for Silverlight, so I thought it would be cool if he could quickly tell us a little about how the new Manager should be used. And he did just that. The interview is about 7 minutes long and in it we see how the RadDragAndDropManager works, what code is required to add drag/drop to any Silverlight item, and how to handle drag/drop events. If you're curious to know more about this control and want to know how to get started with drag-and-drop in your Silverlight applications, check out the video!

Todd, great interview;

You ask the "Right" questions ;-)

I think you should put together a complete series on Silverlight!

Oh, Thanks for the video!

@Ben- Thanks for the feedback. Happy to know the videos are helpful. I'll see what I can do to expand the content to focus more broadly on topics like Silverlight and Ajax. Stay tuned for another video from DevCon coming later this week.

For some reasons, many developers "assume" others know all the details about their work and they jump over some critical points and I've noticed when you interview these developers, i.e. Jan and Miroslav and others, you stop them for a moment to sort out the key issues, before moving to the next point. And that's why said "You" should put a series together, because you can verify the quality.

Thanks!

That guy seems bright and knowledgable...speaks very well too. Thanks for that demo. Drag/drop should have been built in to Silverlight, but at least we can do it with this.

@Anon- Thanks! Mirsolav is bright and well spoken, too. ;-)
