Your feedback has always been our main priority. We focused on addressing the issues you reported in our R3 2019 Service Pack, delivering 30 fixes in total.

I am happy to share that the R3 2019 Service Pack release of Telerik UI for WinForms is now live. As usual, we are thankful for all the feedback we have gathered, and we invested our efforts to make the suite even better, by introducing over 30 improvements in total.

Here are also some goodies that made it in the release.

GridViewSparklineColumn Supports Binding to IEnumerable<T> Where T is IConvertible

In R3 2019 we released a new GridViewSparklineColumn aiming to display sparkline charts. Initially, it worked with arrays of double values. Now, the supported types are extended to any IEnumerable<T> where T is IConvertible. It gives the developer the opportunity to use any numeric collection for building the sparkline:


RadGridView Now Searches in Hierarchical Data when Paging is Enabled

Searching behavior is a very power mechanism for finding matches according to certain patterns. With the new improvement in RadGridView, you can easily highlight the results in all hierarchical levels in combination with enabled paging:


RadTrackBar’s Snap-to-Ticks Behavior Considers the SmallTickFrequency

RadTrackBar now offers a SnapFrequency property. If you change it to Ticks and set the SnapMode to SnapToTicks, you can slide the thumb smoothly snapping to the small/large ticks.


What Comes Next?

Since a virtual keyboard is one of the most voted feature requests in our Feedback Portal, I am very thrilled to announce that it is planned for our next official release. It would fit any touch-screen and kiosk scenarios that require user’s input. The below screenshot illustrates the initial design that we are focused on:


Syntax (Code) Editor is also a very demanded control considering the received feedback. As we completely understand the importance of such a UI component, we will put our efforts in researching the possibilities for implementing such functionality in the Telerik UI for WinForms suite. Stay tuned with the latest news on this topic by following the official feedback item.
