Telerik UI for ASP.NET Core R1 2020 Service Pack
In the R1 2020 Service Pack we have included multiple enhancements and fixes to the Data Grid, Scheduler, FileManager and enhanced the ThemeBuilder with custom styles download tool!
Below we will share some of the highlights from the SP R1 2020 release. For a full list of the 90+ released fixes and enhancements you can refer to the release notes history.
Custom Styles Download
To make it easier for you to customize the style of specific components we have created special feature within the ThemeBuilder.
There are just a few simple steps to follow and you have your custom styles generated in minified CSS file:
- Start Theming with the ThemeBuilder
- Choose base theme among Default, Bootstrap or Material
- Select Components to be styled (note that their child components will be included in the generated CSS file)
- Apply styling based on your design guidelines or branding
- Using the selection tool in the ThemeBuilder you can easily edit the list of components that need styling.
- Download the generated CSS file and apply it in your project
- If you need to add more components or modify existing styles you can always use the ThemeBuilder and repeat the described steps to generate and download new CSS file.
With the service pack release we have also updated multiple UI for ASP.NET Core components demos. Check out the cool looking Card component demos as well as many others.

Document Processing Library
We have also ported the SDK examples and all of them are now compatible with .NET Standard. In the repository, you will find demos showing the usage of the libraries in different scenarios – creating and converting documents or using feature specific for the document formats.
In the SP version, you will as always get various fixes in the libraries which we introduced to make their usage smoother. Starting with this version, the support for the background colors when converting rich text documents to PDF has been extended by adding the conversion for the shading property of the Run elements.
