We are happy to announce the immediate availability of the first major release for this year. Once again, driven by your demand to have successful Windows Forms applications, we proved that Windows Forms still has its place on the big .NET stage.

Here are the highlights for Q1 2012:

RadTimePicker (New Control)

This new control comes as a nice addition to your fill-in forms. It provides end-users with the option to quickly pick the time from a simplified drop-down in addition to picking a date from the RadDateTimePicker.


RadClock (New Control)

The latest release also brings a brand new RadClock control, which enables you to enhance your applications by providing a beautiful interface to end-users allowing them to easily view and compare times in multiple time zones.

Printing support for RadGridView

Q1 2012 brings printing support for RadGridView which allows the end-users to directly pass their grids’ content to a printer. It supports printing of all types of view definitions, but you can also print:

  • Grouped grid
  • Summaries
  • Hidden rows, hidden columns
  • Grid headers on each page

In order to make printing easy and customizable, we have added new user dialogs for viewing and customizing all printing settings:

  • Print settings – page headers and footers, paper size and many others
  • Watermarks
  • Print preview

Very similar dialogs are also used in RadScheduler.


We have also added printing support to RadScheduler enabling the end-users to print their calendars right away.

We’ve made the printing support feature-rich, and full of useful tweaks that will produce the right results even for the most pretentious end-users. Here are the printing features that RadScheduler supports:

  • Print styles: DailyStyle, WeeklyStyle, MonthlyStyle, DetailsStyle.
  • Area for handwritten notes in each style
  • Date header with a calendar showing the busy dates
  • Printing a single view on two pages
  • Page headers, page footers
  • Watermarks
  • Paper size settings
  • Print preview dialogs


As always, your feedback will be greatly appreciated. Happy printing… oops, coding! :)
