The title is a mouthful, but it says it all. RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX Q1 2008 SP2 just went live this evening. This release packs quite a punch so be sure to check it out. Here's the quick-and-dirty about the big new items:
- Firefox 3.0 and Opera 9.5 compatibility across the board
- RadChart - A new property, GroupNameFormat, provides the ability to control the series names in grouped databound charts. There is also zooming and scrolling functionality for any set of series containing at least one line or area series.
- RadComboBox - A new FooterTemplate has been added so you can create your own custom footers, and local caching has been enabled for all items loaded on demand using the new EnableItemCaching property.
- RadEditor - The ToolProviderID property was added, allowing multiple editors to easily share the same toolbar. This greatly improves loading time and client performance. The client API also received a new event, firstShow, which is raised when the editor is first shown on the page. Finally, new rendering allows for the file browser dialogs to be easily customized and offers improved loading speed.
- RadGrid - Several improvements in CSS support. A common CSS class, "RadGrid", was added to the grid's wrapping <div> element.
- RadInput - A new property, NumberFormat-KeepNotRoundedValue, has been added and can be used to indicate whether the control will keep its original value when changed to edit mode.
- RadSpell - You can now make your own custom spell check provider. The SpellCheckProvider base class was made public so that it can be extended. A new property called SpellCheckProviderTypeName is now exposed so that the RadSpell can reference a custom provider.
- RadWindow - Methods were added to the window client API to allow moving and setting size to windows.
In addition to the list above, there were a few more additions and tons of bug fixes for almost ever control in the suite. You can read full details about the new features, updates, and fixes here.
