In this release of Telerik UI for WinForms, we are happy to announce yet another brand-new control–RadDataLayout, the official version of RadDiagram and many more goodies in the whole suite.
After the recently introduced RadLayoutControl, which was very well accepted by our users, the logical extension of it was to tie it with data. RadDataLayout, provides the layout capabilities of the layout control and in addition, it can automatically create the needed items and editors for your data object. From there, you can easily arrange them with drag-and-drop, and your end users will be able to rearrange the editors as they see fit.
With this release, we would like to announce the official version of RadDiagram. The control is now stable and packed with a lot of features. Here are some highlights of what’s new in this release for RadDiagram:
A highly requested functionality for supporting Arabic calendars is now here. As of Q3, 2015 RadCalendar and RadDateTimePicker now support Shamsi, Hijri and Umulqura calendars.
A very popular feature in RadGridView is its column group view definition layout, which allows you to create complex column layouts. In this release, we revamped the functionality and the underlying algorithm to enable even more layout capabilities. We've also added a new functionality to the control’s Property Builder that enables you to create the desired columns layout with drag-and-drop.
Some highly requested features were added to RadDock, such as pinned tabs, preview tab and new docking guides for ToolWindows. With the latter present, you can choose whether to dock the ToolWindows as DocumentWindow or as ToolWindow.
RadChartView now features a FastLineSeries, which is a variation of the LineSeries that significantly reduces the drawing time of a large number of data points.
A new addition to the control is the export to excel functionality via TreeViewSpreadExport. This export provider uses our SpreadProcessing libraries, which allows exporting to xlsx, csv, txt and pdf files. We have also greatly improved the control performance with large amount of data.
Export via our SpreadProcessing libraries was also added to RadListView for all view modes.
RadProperty grid received an export functionality, again using the SpreadProcessing library.
Last, but not least, we have created a new demo application mimicking a medical reservation system. You can find it in the integration examples in our demo application. Here are some screen shots of it:
