Telerik Trainer splash screen. You'll see this when you first launch the application. It only takes a few seconds for the application to initialize.
The complete Telerik Trainer UI. You can see the "Welcome" episode starting in the large video area. We'll take a closer look at each UI area in the following images.
The control area. From here you can play/pause the episode, skip between video sections, resize the Trainer, and even launch code related to the episode in Visual Studio.
The Highlight area, which is right about the main video, displays sync'd highlights that help reinforce points being made in the video. These bullets automatically appear and disappear as the episode progresses.
The Table of Contents makes it easy to skip around in an episode. Clicking on a topic will automatically skip the episode to that bookmark.
The Information bar, which expands in the TOC area, shows you all the info about the episode you're currently watching, such as author, date created, and the versions of Visual Studio the episode is designed to work with.
The Recently Viewed menu, also in the TOC area, shows you a list of recently viewed episodes. The "Welcome to the Telerik Trainer" epsisode loads by default when you first run the Trainer to help get you started.
The Prefrences pane enables you to set a number of different settings in the Trainer, such as which language you prefer to use when launching code examples, which version of VS to use, and whether or not the Trainer should stay on top of all other windows when focus is lost.
The last pane, the About pane, gives credit to our great partner Falafel for helping us build this application. Their incredible team has worked closely with Telerik to put the Trainer together and we think they've done a great job!
The Code button, highlighted above, will reveal a tooltip with a preview of the code you're about to lauch in VS when you mouse over it. The tooltip tells you the language, version of VS, file, and line number that will be opened.
In the Highlights area, some bullets will be clickable links that open in your default web browser. These highlights will be displayed in green.
Here's what full screen mode looks like. You can see you still have access to the video controls and you can still see the important highlights. The TOC is hidden, though.
Finally, when you close the Trainer, you will be asked if you want to delete any temporary files created during your session. Clicking "Yes" will delete all files (including code files you may have edited); "No" will leave the temp files alone. Hope you enjoyed this walk-thru of the Telerik Trainer!
