Telerik R1 2019 Release_870x220

Get a sneak peek at some of the new controls and features that will be available in Telerik UI for ASP.NET AJAX, Telerik UI for ASP.NET MVC and Telerik UI for ASP.NET Core.

Happy 2019! If you hadn’t heard, next week is the first major release of the year for the Telerik and Kendo UI product lines. And while you will have to wait a few more days before you can get your hands on the latest bits, I thought I’d share the highlight reel of what will be included.

Make sure you download the latest bits or a trial on January 16 – and don’t forget to sign up for the Telerik R1 2019 release webinar where Sam Basu and Ed Charbeneau will go over all of the new additions and improvements to our web, mobile and desktop tools.

Telerik UI for ASP.NET MVC and Telerik UI for ASP.NET Core

New Date Range Selection Components: MultiViewCalendar and DateRangePicker Date Range selection is a popular request. Because of this, we are adding two new controls in R1 2019 - MultiViewCalendar and DateRangePicker. The MultiViewCalendar component enables developers to easily display two calendars side by side, while the DateRangePicker component provides the ability to pick a start and end date all within a single drop down menu.

TreeView Performance Boost
With R1 2019 we have taken significant steps to improve rendering and interaction time with the TreeView, which is most noticeable in data intensive scenarios. But don’t worry, there won’t be a need to work with any new configuration; all improvements are under the hood!

Scaffolding and Support for Razor Pages in ASP.NET Core
With R1 2019 Telerik UI for ASP.NET Core will receive several scaffold templates that can easily be added in to any project to help speed up development. On top of this, as of R1 2019 we will also fully support Razor Pages to help cover more scenarios when developing with ASP.NET Core.

Telerik UI for AJAX

New Control: MultiColumnComboBox I know what you are probably thinking – “a new control for Telerik UI for ASP.NET AJAX? Sweet!” (I couldn’t agree more). In R1 2019, Telerik UI for ASP.NET AJAX users will have the ability to display tabular data within a drop down with the new MultiColumnComboBox. This new control provides the power of a displaying and filtering items in the table all within a drop down, giving users more context around the data items they are looking to select.

The Toolbar Feature Gets Added to RadChat
We’re also adding features to RadChat (our Conversational UI control). With the new toolbar feature the RadChat component can now have additional forms of input in any chat, including the ability to attach images, sound files, and any other type of file that may be needed. This toolbar can be customized to ensure that the component only offers the required inputs.
