Our existing controls got serious improvements as well.

RadGridView for WinForms is now supported by RadExpressionEditor that allows the end user to build complex expressions based on the columns data using one of the predefined functions that RadExpressionEditor has to offer. In case the huge number of the available functions does not satisfy your requirements, no problem, you are able to define and add your own custom functions.

RadMaskedEditBox was equipped with several new cool masks. The awaited IP, E-mail and Regex masks are here! In addition, we have improved the design-time support and the usability in many of the existing masks.

We have always been dressing our components according to the latest fashion trends. This time is no different. One more theme made it into the suite – Telerik Metro. It follows the Metro trends established by Windows Phone 7.
