The R1 2020 service pack release of Telerik UI for WinForms is now available, complete with a large number of enhancements and customer-requested features. Check out what's new.

Customer satisfaction has always been a top priority for us, and we have focused on various bug fixes and enhancements as we prepared our service pack release. As a result, we are rolling out a more stable Telerik UI for WInForms suite which contains 35+ improvements and customer requested features. Check out some of the new goodies of R1 2020 for WinForms!

EditingOptions and Shell Context Menu Handling in File Dialogs

All File Dialogs and the ExplorerControl now offer EditingOptions - a property which determines how the files and folders in the ExplorerControl can be edited. Setting EditingOptions will determine which edit operations can be performed via keyboard keys and "NewFolder" button.

ExplorerControl now offers the ShellContextMenuOpening event which occurs when the context menu is about to open. You can use it to cancel the menu opening or to add/remove options from the short menu (the one opened when the cursor is on an empty space in the explorer).

AllowDuplicates in RadAutoCompleteBox

RadAutoCompleteBox controls whether already selected items can be suggested via the AllowDuplicates property:

AllowDuplicates in RadAutoCompleteBox Do not AllowDuplicates in RadAutoCompleteBox 

Note that you can still add duplicated tokens in the editor if you type them manually. In order to avoid that you can subscribe to TokenValidating event and if the existing text in RadAutoCompleteBox contains the new text, set the IsValidToken property to false.

RadFileDialogs integration in RadBrowseEditor

Telerik File Dialogs are now integrated in RadBrowseEditor. Hence, three new dialog types were added to the BrowseEditorDialogType enumeration: RadOpenFileDialog, RadOpenFolderDialog, RadSaveFileDialog. The Dialog property has been obsoleted, and it is necessary to use the BrowseDialog property instead and cast it to the actual dialog type to access the respective dialog's properties.

Localization Provider for RadMaskedEditBox

RadMaskedEditBoxLocalizationProvider allows you to specify custom text for the items in the context menu.

CartesianFreeFigureAnnotation in RadChartView

CartesianFreeFigureAnnotation allows you to add an annotation in RadChartView that is formed by a set of FreeFigurePoints. This allows you to create a free figure plotted on the viewport. Each FreeFigurePoint is defined by X and Y values:
