We have enriched our Telerik UI for Blazor Charts suite with a new addition—the Range Bar Chart component.
The Blazor Range Bar Chart proves valuable for showcasing data as horizontal bars, where their lengths and positions correspond to their respective values. It becomes particularly useful when you need to compare multiple sets of data side by side.
We have now made our Charts a lot more interactive—through a simple configuration, you can enable pan and zoom features, making your charting experience even more engaging and intuitive.
We continuously enhance our Grid component to ensure it remains the market leader. Be sure to check the latest improvements below.
Our latest update provides users with the flexibility to customize Filter Menu buttons using Templates. For example, you can now:
The Telerik UI for Blazor grid Grid now supports using FIlterRow and Column menu together. This enhancement will primarily cater to a use case where end clients prefer the filter row’s user experience but still require certain functionalities from the Column Menu, like toggling columns and other related actions.
The Telerik UI for ASP.NET MVC and Core Charts now allows users to explore data using a drill-down feature.
By clicking on a point (e.g., bar, pie segment), users can navigate to a different view, presenting more detailed data about the selected item, like a breakdown by product within the chosen category.
You can now customize The Telerik UI for ASP.NET Core and MVC Scheduler component through an intuitive configuration option. For example, you can easily reorder the toolbar items or add custom items within the toolbar. Simply define the buttons, their order and the associated functionalities, and the Scheduler component will reflect your custom Toolbar configuration.
We prioritize product quality and consistently strive to enhance our components by delivering incremental improvements. Recently, we have sent out the latest set of fixes to Telerik UI for ASP.NET AJAX, addressing various issues in components such as RadMultiSelect, PdfViewer and CircularGauge.
Imagine a situation where you need to display a list of products in your application. A typical row could include basic information such as the order ID, date, shipped date and estimated date. However, what if you want to present additional details like shipping address, customer or assignee information without cluttering your grid?
This is where the Telerik UI for .NET MAUI Row Details feature shines. It allows you to keep your grid clean and straightforward while providing an option to access more detailed information on demand. It enhances the user experience by making your application interface more interactive and less cluttered.
For more information on getting started with this feature of the DataGrid, visit the Telerik UI for .NET MAUI documentation.
The hover effect of the DataGrid’s Header Cell is a feature that changes the appearance of a column header cell in the DataGrid when the mouse pointer hovers over it. This interactive visual cue allows users to understand that they can interact with the header cell, offering potential actions like sorting or filtering data, or indicating that the column can be repositioned by dragging.
Moreover, you can customize header cells to better represent the data they’re associated with, making your grid more intuitive and visually appealing.
Whether you want to include an icon with the header text, change the sorted state of the header, or add additional visual elements, the HeaderContentTemplate provides the flexibility to do it all.
Here is a simple example:

The R2 2023 SP1 release of Telerik UI for WinForms comes with a modern legend feature to the brand-new Heat Map control, redesigned examples in demo application, fresh new look of Visual Style Builder and various other improvements.
The legend is a great addition to the freshly released Heat Map Control in the R2 2023 release. Technically speaking, the legend relates the color spectrum of the heat map cells to their corresponding numeric values. It is a feature that allows the end user to easily interpret and operate through the control’s color palette.
The legend is fully customizable—by default, the control automatically creates items based on the current definition and colorizer, and in addition to this you can also modify them or create your custom legend items.
We redesigned a considerable amount of the PDF Processing examples: You can check them out in PDF Processing section of the Demo Application.
Quality, efficiency and user satisfaction are the keystones of our commitment. We continuously strive to improve and perfect our products, making them more robust and reliable for our valued customers.
Today, we’re excited to announce that we’ve made numerous bug fixes (more than 120) across our desktop and mobile suites and our document processing libraries, providing an enhanced, seamless user experience.
See the detailed list of the What’s New items to learn more:
Radial Gauge was released in R2 2023 to enable displaying the important business KPIs in a visual manner. We received feedback that its public API may be improved, and we listened. Now all the scalar properties of the model represent units relative to the item’s size, so its content resizes gradually when the item gets resized.
More importantly, we also introduce a Linear gauge item so that these KPIs can be represented in any possible visual manner.
We continue to build on our PDF accessibility functionality introducing various improvements so that assistive technologies work even better. Check out the full list in the release notes.
Again based on user feedback, we exposed the evaluated report parameters in the client APIs of Blazor, React, Angular and HTML5 report viewers, which allows for implementing more custom behavior scenarios.
