Now you can easily add tab navigation to your pages. If the items are too big for the available space or their count is high they will appear per request.
RadTabView is also fully customizable. You can easily change the ControlTemplate of items and the position of tab strip—Up or Down. You can find more information about this here.
This component displays a notification whenever a longer-running process is being handled by the application. It comes with eight predefined stunning animations and the option to build a custom one. You can read more about it here.
RadRating comes with predefined shapes and an option to use a custom ones to achieve all scenarios you may have .
And the last addition to our suite is a segmented items control. This allows you to have a list of button-like items which you can use for simple navigation with a great UX, or as options display to your apps.
The new view of RadCalendar is here with an all day area, configurable time ruler and an API that allows you to schedule appointments and achieve your scheduling functionality.
Our major component RadListView is also improved with Command support. Also, our RadChartView is now even more MVVM friendly, allowing developers to easily bind and format Labels to the data object.
