VirtualGrid Optmizations Analytics Integration and More in UI for WPF_870x220

Our VirtualGrid is faster and analytics services integration is built-in, plus more improvements in the latest release of UI for WPF.

The R2 2017 Service Pack release of Telerik UI for WPF and Telerik UI for Silverlight is already live, and it is packed up with lots of updates and features.

We have prepared a quick summary of what is new and what the major updates are in both of the suites.

VirtualGrid Optimizations


You might already have seen our newest gem, we introduced with last official release (R2 2017) of Telerik UI for WPF—RadVirtualGrid. The control is still in development (beta), however it is getting faster and better. With this service pack we have updated the virtualization engine, so it now it consumes significantly less memory and included the following major fixes:

  • ArgumentException is thrown when the available Height/Width of the CompoundPanel is less than the total Height/Width of all pinned containers
  • PushCellValue method does not work if there is no current cell

The official version of the control is scheduled for next major release of the WPF suite (R3 2017), so any feedback regarding the current state of the component is highly appreciated. You could let us know about any issues you have found and/or any features you might need through our Feedback portal.

Built-in Analytics Services Integration in the UI for WPF/Silverlight Controls


We know that integrating an analytics service in a newly developed application is a must. That is why we exposed our TraceMonitor class and ITraceMonitor interface, so you can benefit from them and use our current tracking implementation with the analytic service provider of your choice. For example, you could easily track some of the major custom events of our most popular controls. More details regarding the exact implementation and the full list of the traceable features in UI for WPF can be found in the Application Analytics article.

Other Improvements

As usual, with this release you should expect numerous improvements in our most used controls. We included many important fixes for RadGridView, RadChartView, RadRichTextBox as well as improvements in our brand new Material theme. You can find full list of all the fixes and improvements here.
