Upcoming RadScheduleView Features in R2 2017 of UI for WPF_870x220

The new release of Progress Telerik UI for WPF and Progress Telerik UI for Silverlight is just around the corner—here's a quick sneak peak what's new in RadScheduleView.

The R2 2017 release of UI for WPF and UI for Silverlight is almost here, and we're busy preparing lots of great features and updates. As we wrap up the release, we wanted to share some key new changes in the RadScheduleView.

New SubGroupsFilter

One of the most desired RadScheduleView features in our feedback portal—hierarchical grouping of resources—will be now possible using the new SubGroupsFilter predicate. In the predicate, you will receive each of the subgroups and will be able choose whether to display a group header for the group or not. Using the filter could allow having resources with different sub-resources as shown below:

Support for Arabic Calendars like Shamsi (Persian) and Hijri

In the previous major release (R1 2017) of UI for WPF and UI for Silverlight we introduced Arabic calendars support for RadCalendar and RadDateTimePicker. With R2 2017, RadScheduleView will fully support all the available globalization calendars in the .NET framework. The control will display and use the calendar from the current application culture out of the box, without any additional effort:

Other Improvements

Rendering optimizations and improvements of the current time indicator, mouse over and special slots implementations are part of the updates that are coming. This release will also include a new option in the ScheduleViewDragDropBehavior that will allow you to cache the dragged data when performing external drag operation.

Getting excited about the R2 2017 release? Stay tuned for many more new features and improvements coming next month. In the meantime, please feel free to share your feedback regarding the control and whole suite through our Feedback portal, and check out our roadmap to see what's coming next.
