Check out the newest additions to the Telerik UI for WinUI in our latest release—new components, improved examples application and more!
New year—new Telerik WinUI controls with the R1 2021 release! Ladies and gentlemen please welcome onboard: Barcode, BusyIndicator, Pagination, Rating and the one and only RibbonView!🍾 In addition to all that, we also updated our examples application with new cool features and ensured support for the latest available preview of WinUI (preview 3).
Let's see what is new in this version of Telerik UI for WinUI!
Yes, it is here—the most desired component from the WinUI community! Extend your application with our full-blown MS Office-like “ribbon” UI.
RadRibbonView will allow you to easily organize the navigation functionality of your application into a single compact toolbar control. All the built-in controls, popups, dynamic resizing and the powerful customization capabilities make RadRibbonView your shortcut to creating powerful navigation systems. On the top of that the native Windows appearance as well as the Simplified layout will allow you to implement complete and modern WinUI 3 application.
Here are the key features of control:
Hope you like it! I can't wait to see what you, guys, can achieve with RadRibbonView 😎
For more details please visit the RibbonView section from our help documentation and make sure to play around with the demos here.
The next control is Barcode—it will allow you to create and show barcodes in your application. RadBarcode is using low level rendering (Composition API) thus it is providing the best performance and highest quality appearance.
With the initial release the control we provide support for 25 different one- and two-dimensional barcodes including the most popular QR code and Data Matrix—for the full list you check this article. However if you don’t see type of barcode you need, please drop me a line in the comments section below.
Key features of RadBarcode:
Make sure to visit the Barcode section in our online help documentation.
Introducing RadBusyIndicator—a component that will allow you to display an animation while your application is busy waiting for an async operation to finish. The control comes with nine cool built-in animations and the option to implement custom ones to achieve unique appearance.
You can find more information in the BusyIndicator section of our online help documentation.
The new Pagination control is a helper control designed to work with any ItemsControl in order to provide a better user experience and enhance its functionality. It allows current item tracking as well provides previous, next and exact item navigation.
Check out the Pagination control in our documentation.
Another new control is RadRating ⭐. This control enables the end user to evaluate something by selecting a value. The rating value can be changed either by click or by pan gesture over the rating items. The control provides two different selection modes, different precision modes as well as options to specify the appearance of the rating items in the different states.
You can find the RadRating documentation here.
