The Telerik UI for WinForms R1'19 service pack brings Visual Studio 2019 Preview 3 Support and a variety of new features and improvements.
As usual we focused on fixes and improvements in the suite for the service pack release of Telerik UI for WinForms. We are happy that we managed to introduced new features as well as important bug fixes in various controls. We also tested it against the latest Visual Studio 2019 (preview 3) and we can confirm that the entire suite is fully compatible.
We managed to deliver 37 fixes and features. Below are some of the improvements that are part of the service pack release:
A property defined on the base column affecting how the filtering is executed. Up until now, every key stroke in the filter cell resulted in updating the applied filter. This can lead to a delay in grids having many records. As a result the cursor in the filter can start lagging while typing. The AutoFilterDelay property sets a value in milliseconds that indicates the delay between the last key press and the filtering operation.
Header Checkbox Performance
The performance has been improved many times over, and toggling the header checkbox in a grid with 100,000 rows now takes less than 2 seconds.
Now the LayoutItemControlBase class has the AllowHide property, determining whether the item can be hidden by the end-user from the Customize dialog.
Editing Fields Navigation
The text fields can now be navigated forwards and backwards using the Tab and Shift + Tab keys.
Visual Studio 2019
We tested the controls with Visual Studio 2019 (preview 3) and we are happy to confirm that they are fully compatible.
