The latest release is now live! It brings over 70 improvements for Telerik UI for WPF as well as the latest .NET 6 Preview support! On the Telerik UI for WinUI side, we are adding few brand new components—DateTime Pickers, LoopingList and SegmentedControl.
Let’s dive in together to see what is new with this release.
Welcome the first WinUI DateTimePicker component in the universe (really 😉). Select with ease a concrete date and time using a single beautiful WinUI component—RadDateTimePicker. Depending on the requirements, the control could be easily transformed into date or time only picker.
Here are the major features of the control:
Hope you will make use of this handy control. You can find more information about it in the RadDateTimePicker section in our help documentation. Also make sure to see it in action in our WinUI Examples app.
RadSegmentedControl is a helpful control that will allow you to display a list of horizontally aligned, mutually exclusive options, which can be selected by the user. Each option is a button that can display text, glyph or whatever UI element you want. Here are the key features of the control:
For more info, check out the SegmentedControl documentation.
The next new control is RadLoopingList—it allows you to visualize a list of data items in a single column with great performance and looping functionality. Its performance is highly optimized as it uses its own UI virtualized data source and item-representation mechanism.
That and the looping capability will allow you to easily display large amounts of items with ease. The looping capability means that once the control reaches the end of the data list, it seamlessly continues from the beginning, wrapping to the first data item.
Here is list with the major features of the control:
For more details, make sure to see the LoopingList help documentation.
As always, we are bringing support for the latest .NET 6 Preview available—in this case Preview 4. It was announced by Microsoft at the end of last month (check out the announcement blog post), and we immediately provided support for it in the internal builds since then.
So, feel free to play around with the latest .NET framework and experiment with our WPF controls as well. Any feedback that you have will be appreciated—please do let us know! 😊
Many of you shared with us that you prefer the mini toolbar to appear not transparent. You can now easily disable that behavior and fully show the SelectionMiniToolBar by setting a single property. Just set the IsTransparencyEnabled property to false as shown below:
And here is the result:
Previously, when importing documents that contained invalid or empty annotation appearance set, an exception was thrown. Now importing such documents is supported by PdfProcessing out of the box—just do it! 😊
Some documents contain streams that are marked as compressed with a FlateDecode filter for reserved by PKWARE Inc. methods. However, these methods are actually still not implemented in the .ZIP File Format and such compression is not applied, so when such stream is imported with PdfProcessing a NotSupportedReservedMethodException is thrown. You can now handle such exceptions using the Handling Exceptions mechanism.
And that is not all—we have a lot more! To get an overview of all the latest features and improvements we’ve made, check out the release notes for the products below:
