Fluent Dark Theme, Radar Chart & More in UI for WinForms R1 2018 SP1_870x220

This SP release includes the Fluent Dark theme, Radar charts, Export of image columns to Excel and much more. Check out all the new features.

Following on from our strong 2018 R1 release where we introduced a barcode, search in the scheduler and a fluent inspired theme we continue our commitment to deliver on the most sought-after features.

“You Don’t Know the Power of the Dark Side!”

Many have been tempted with the power of the dark side yet a slender few have resisted it, knowing the dangers that lurk within. It takes wisdom, a very clear mind and a keen eye to distinguish between good and evil. In the case of our Fluent-inspired Dark theme, all it takes is just a glance to know that it is awesome and is just as irresistible as the power of the dark side itself… without all the danger, evil, doom and stuff like that. So go ahead and check it out.


Radar Column Series

The chart has a new series type – Radar Column Series. The Radar Column series represents data points as bars starting from the center of the chart with their height being defined by the value they represent.


Images in Excel Export

GridViewSpreadExport now exports images from the image column of the grid to MS Excel files.


TextBox Null Text

There are two camps when it comes to how to handle the “null text” in text boxes. One is to hide the null text when the control receives focus and the other one is to hide the null text only when there is some input in the text box. Instead of joining one or the other we decided to be politically correct and have added a property that will let you choose which one best suits your needs.

Of course, a service pack would not be a service pack without a healthy dose of bug fixes. For the full list of changes, fixes and improvements head over to our Release Notes page.
