Save State with C1FlexGrid for Silverlight

We can easily save the current state of the C1DataGrid and Greg's post here discusses the implementation in detail.

Display Watermarks in Bound C1ComboBox for Silverlight

Watermark is a popular feature for displaying customized strings when input values are missing in editable controls. If we start looking at the available properties for C1ComboBox we will find a 'Watermark' property is already available and functioning.

Silent Installation of ComponentOne Installers

Many customers have asked us whether there is any way to silently install C1 installer on a computer. When we normally run C1 installer it requires local administrator rights and asks permission to make an entry to the registry.

Wijmo 2.0.8 Released

Wijmo 2.0.8 has officially released. We have been doing plenty of bug fixes and feature enhancements since 2.0.0.

This blog focuses on a small utility implementation where a drilled down C1Chart control is used to display detailed data for each row in C1FlexGrid. ComponentOne already provides a separate suite for Data Analysis in the form of OLAP for Silverlight. However, we may not need a full fledged control for small analytic display every time. In such a scenario, we can bind existing C1Chart control to the required data source to display the data.

Data Binding of Wijmo Composite Charts

Composite charts are used to display and analyze complex data in a single chart, so as the name suggests, its data binding is a little different from normal charts. In this blog, we will see how we can easily create a complex chart in code.

Multi-Page Tiff Images in C1Report

Wijmo GridView : Updating Database From Client Side

Many a times you wish to show data in a GridView and allow users to edit the data and save it. It used to be a cumbersome and time-consuming task where you had to define template columns and then manually get the updated values.

Conditional Formatting in Flexgrid for LightSwitch

ComponentOne FlexGrid for LightSwitch is a LightSwitch control extension that uses the same command bar elements as the built-in Data Grid; however, it replaces the underlying Silverlight grid control with the popular ComponentOne FlexGrid control. As a drop-in replacement, the extension does everything that the built-in Data Grid does, plus conditional formatting, cell merging, tree views, export to Excel (even from the Web), filtering, printing, grouping and more.

How to Save the State of C1DataGrid

The ComponentOne DataGrid for Silverlight and WPF has a rich collection of methods that allow you to easily track every movement the user makes. We can take advantage of this tracking to listen for layout changes made to the grid and then persist the layout between runs of the application.

How to Create a Custom Theme for C1Chart

The ComponentOne Chart for Silverlight and WPF comes with 12 unique themes out of the box. These themes can be applied by simply setting the Theme property. In addition to the 12 built-in themes, C1Chart is also supported in the several toolkit themes like Expression Dark, Shiny Blue, etc. But in many cases your requirements may dictate that you design a custom theme for the charts. In this blog post I will walk through creating a custom theme for C1Chart using Expression Blend 4.

Binding Aggregate Values from C1FlexGrid to C1Chart for Silverlight

Chart and Grid are commonly used controls. Grid control is used to display the factual data while Chart control is used to analyze that data.

JavaScript Programming Resources

Recently I have been working with our CTO, Bernardo Castillo, on a project converting a C# application to JavaScript by hand. The syntax clearly has differences (along with similarities), but the biggest questions have come regarding principles and patterns. As we wrote the JavaScript I kept falling back to things I have read from a few very good resources throughout my affair with JavaScript programming. I compiled a short list last night and sent it to Bernardo, but thought it is something that should be made public.
