With the release of RadControls for WinForms Q1 2011 SP1, we officially completed the Q1 2011 release, and it is time to pave our way towards Q2 2011. The first thing we did, of course, was to schedule the tasks for the release and we think that it is time to share our plans for Q2 2011. Among all the goodies that the new release will feature, the most important are two new controls:
- Property Grid. This powerful control will provide a sophisticated Visual Studio-style property grid, and will allow for theming and customizations. Developers will be able to easily create a hierarchical list of editable properties and represent any data type or sub-item. Different types of editors will be available depending on the type of the corresponding object properties.
- ListView. The ListView control is a databound control that will support different views: Tile View, Details View, and more. It will be based on our generic data layer (which is already in use by RadGridView and other controls). It will support data operations such as grouping, filtering and sorting. Of course it will support our advanced theming mechanism and will allow editing of different data types.
Check out the rest of the planned features and improvements in the RadControls for WinForms Roadmap. The Q2 release is expected in mid Summer.
