New TaskBoard and SplashScreen controls, AgendaView for ScheduleView and more are here in the R1 2020 release of Telerik UI for WPF.
Announcing the first official release for this year (and decade) of Telerik UI for WPF and Telerik UI for Silverlight – R1 2020 is live! 🙌 It brings powerful new controls like TaskBoard and SplashScreen, cool new features like AgendaView for ScheduleView, new Item Templates and .NET Core 3.1 support, as well as many other improvements. Let’s dive in together and explore all the new goodies.
Introducing RadTaskBoard – powerful new control designed to provide a clean and user-friendly interface for task management applications. This Kanban-like board will allow your end-users to track their tasks in a simple, clean, agile-style manner. Check out the key features below:
The other new control of this release is RadSplashScreen. 👏 As you already might know – the WPF framework allows you display an image as the SplashScreen of the application, while RadSplashScreen will allow you to crate and show a dynamic SplashScreen that contains WPF controls. You can easily display our beautifully themed controls and indicate the load progress status of your WPF app.
Here are the key features of the control:
For more details please check the SplashScreen online documentation here.
We are adding brand new view mode to RadScheduleView – Agenda View. Easily see a list of the upcoming appointments in a specific time range grouped by the date. The new view provides all the supported features of the control plus a modern appearance. Where there are no appointments in the current range – a customizable message is displayed. See AgendaViewDefition below:

With our previous official release (R3 2019) we introduced the SyntaxEditor control as a beta – a powerful text editor with built-in highlighting and code editing capabilities (in case you missed it check out the release blog here and the dedicated SyntaxEditor blog here). With this release of the RadSyntaxEditor we are bringing in the official version of the control and introducing built-in touch support, enhanced folding taggers, improved folding functionality and a lot of fixes.
We have also added two new examples in our WPF demos – one demonstrating multiple custom taggers in action and another demonstrating different configurations. Make sure to also check the documentation of the control here.
Happy coding 👩💻
Structured Document Tags or Content Controls enable users to add specific semantics to the document: provide the user with predefined values, modifying editing behavior (you can lock the content of the controls, or prevent the entire control from deleting). The content controls in RadRichTextBox can be defined on different levels inside the document structure or nested inside each other.
Currently, RadRichTextBox only visualizes the value of the content controls, and there is no UI that allows you to interact with them (the UI is planned for the next official release). The import and export operations will work with Office Open XML (DOCX) and XAML formats. With other formats, only the current value of the content controls will be exported.
Sheets Visibility is a mechanism to change the visibility of certain sheets. You can use the context menu or the Hide/Unhide methods to use this functionality.
We added new properties and events to the FillSelection functionality. This allows you to control how this feature works in the code behind. Detailed information is available here: Fill Selection.
In case you missed it OpenStreetMap Foundation has updated its Tile Usage Policy in order to require a valid UserAgent to be passed with the request. That is why we introduced a way to easily pass your UserAgent string for the Standard mode through XAML as shown below:

Microsoft announced .NET Core 3.1 in December last year, and immediately after that we updated the target framework of our WPF .NET Core binaries. With this release they will be built against .NET Core 3.1.
We are also including new Project Templates for .NET Core that refer to our Nuget packages in order to provide you with the same experience as in the .NET Framework project templates. Just create a new Blank project, select the Nuget version and you are ready to take advantage of a fully loaded Toolbox with Telerik UI for WPF controls! 😎
We are introducing WPF Item Templates – they will replace the Telerik Scenario Wizard and will allow you to use the predefined item templates through the Add -> New Item context menu in Visual Studio.
Here is list of available templates:
