)-- Telerik, a leading vendor of development tools and user interface components for .NET, announced today that its RadControls for Microsoft Silverlight 3 provides support for the Microsoft Silverlight Analytics Framework Beta, allowing developers to benefit from the new capabilities the framework offers. The new framework, announced yesterday at Microsoft Corp.’s MIX10 conference, allows designers and developers to integrate Web analytics into Silverlight applications in a consistent manner.
“RadControls for Silverlight development plans have been always aligned with evolutions in the Microsoft Silverlight platform,” said Svetozar Georgiev, Telerik CEO. “The Microsoft Silverlight Analytics Framework solves the problem of integrating web analytics in to Silverlight applications in a consistent manner and we are very excited to be the first UI components vendor support it.”
“Microsoft is pleased to have Telerik’s support for the Microsoft Silverlight Analytics Framework,” said Brad Becker, director of rich client platforms and tools at Microsoft. “Telerik RadControls for Silverlight will provide developers with unique tools for building rich Internet applications.”
The Microsoft Silverlight Analytics Framework is a new open-source framework that supports out-of-browser and offline scenarios. Microsoft built this framework in conjunction with a number of Web analytics services and control vendors and designed it to support multiple analytics services simultaneously without degrading application performance. Because the Silverlight Analytics Framework is enabled as a set of behaviors in Microsoft Expression Blend, designers and developers can visually instrument their designs and configure A/B testing rapidly without writing any code.
Telerik RadControls for Silverlight provide developers with advanced and robust tools for building Silverlight rich internet applications. RadControls work out-of-the-box with the Silverlight Analytics Framework. The suite offers Silverlight Analytics Framework handlers and behavior, which are also in Beta, helping developers to fine tune the values sent to the analytics providers. Currently the handlers are implemented in 12 controls. The official RadControls handlers and behavior for the Microsoft Silverlight Analytics Framework will be released together with the official release of the framework.
RadControls for Silverlight is available with a Developer license for $799 and with a Developer license with subscription and source code for $999. The license comes with priority support (guaranteed 24-hour response time), full C# source code, redistribution rights and free updates for the latest products for one year. The toolset works without license keys and can be freely deployed on an unlimited number of development, testing and production servers. Hundreds of code samples are provided to accelerate learning.
