WinForms - Overview
This article is relevant to entity models that utilize the deprecated Visual Studio integration of Telerik Data Access. The current documentation of the Data Access framework is available here.
The following tutorial is aimed at users who are familiar with the development of WinForms applications and want to know how to work with Telerik Data Access. To complete the tutorial, you must have installed:
- Microsoft VisualStudio 2010 or a later version.
- Microsoft SQL Server 2005 or a later version with Database Services, or the Express edition of SQL Server 2005 or a later version.
- Sofia Car Rental sample database.
- Telerik Data Access
- Telerik RadControls for WinForms
Samples Kit Demos
Telerik Data Access Samples Kit includes this demo as well as the Sofia Car Rental - WCF Plain Services with Windows Forms demo, which demonstrates consumption of WCF Plain Services in a Windows Forms client.
For more advanced WinForms demos, you could refer to Telerik Data Access Samples Kit. It is an easy to use resource browser that includes various demos and relevant information for the developers. The samples are grouped by technology (ASP.NET, Silverlight, WPF, WCF, N-Tier, etc.) and can be filtered by programming language (C# or VB) and complexity (levels 100-400). The Telerik Data Access Samples Kit is intended for browsing the code samples offline, so it should be downloaded and installed separately from the Telerik Data Access product.
