Telerik R2 2019 Release_870x220

The R2 2019 release for Telerik UI for ASP.NET AJAX is here! Read all about what's new in this release, including various updates to the RadMultiColumnComboBox and continued stability improvements.

May is here and you know what this means: the R2 2019 release is here! In this blog post I want to dive in to what is new for Telerik UI for ASP.NET AJAX with this new release, so let’s jump right in!

Updates to the RadMultiColumnComboBox

Some of you may have noticed that when we shipped the RadMultiColumnComboBox it had a limited set of themes that could be used with it. In terms of feedback that we received from our developers this was a fairly popular control and rather than delay a release due to the lack of certain themes we wanted to get something out in your hands right away. Well, with the R1 2019 behind is we could focus on implementing additional themes for the RadMultiColumnComboBox, which we released with R2 2019! So, if overall styling was holding you back from using the component then you have no
excused with this release!

Beyond themes we also went ahead and added several server-side events that we found to be needed for the RadMultiColumnComboBox. While we have quite a few client-side events, we wanted to expand what can be done on the server-side as well, hence the addition of the new server-side events! For a full run-down I recommend checking out our RadMultiColumnComboBox documentation section on server-side programming.

Button Gets a Confirmation Dialog

Adding an ability to work with the default browser confirm dialog, or work with the RadConfirm dialog, when using the RadButton has been one of our most requested features in our feedback portal. This can be extremely useful in scenarios where you want the user to confirm the action they’re about to do. This has technically been possible with some custom code, but now we are providing a quick and easy way to offer this with the RadButton component out-of-the-box!

Continued Stability Improvements

I always like to highlight that the UI for ASP.NET AJAX team continues to ensure that every release is the most stable release of UI for ASP.NET AJAX to date. With R2 2019 we have focused on our issues backlog and worked hard on improving the overall stability of UI for ASP.NET AJAX. This includes things like updated browser support to the latest and greatest, as well as a ton of under-the-hood items.
