Telerik UI for ASP.NET Core
We are excited to announce the 2021 product roadmap for Telerik UI for ASP.NET Core!
We believe that our customer input is extremely valuable when we determine the next releases of Telerik UI for ASP.NET Core. To have direct impact on our product roadmap we encourage you to keep sharing your thoughts, plans and ideas for what next you would like to see developed in the ASP.NET Core suite in our dedicated feedback portal.
Here is the list of ASP.NET Core UI components you can expect in the upcoming 2021 releases. As we continously expand and grow the product, components and features that are already delivered as part of the Telerik UI for ASP.NET Core roadmap are marked with ✔.
To make sure you get the latest and greatest from .NET 6, we will continue with our efforts to provide compatibility and support for Telerik UI for ASP.NET Core with latest release candidate versions of .NET 6.0 until its GA (General Availability) later this year in November.
With the new Organizational chart component, you will be able to visualize hierarchical data, teams and org structure with ease.
The Captcha component will help you prevent spam in form submissions by requesting user/human input and eliminating the need to integrate with 3rd party controls.
The Popover component provides a simple and elegant way to display additional content on top of another. Typically used for showing additional content on actions like click or hover of a particular element.
The Heatmap chart is a popular a Grid-style graphical representation of two-dimensional data where each cell value determines the its underlaying color variation. Cell colorings can correspond to different aggregate metrics, like count, sum, or frequency. Another typical use case for using the heat map is with general qualitative values such as low, medium, high related to probability, risk management and project management.
We value your feedback and want to know what is important for you to see as a part of our Telerik UI for ASP.NET Core, that’s why we will be shipping a new Admin Dashboard Demo Application with as many components as possible to interact with and see in action.
With the official release of Bootstrap 5 coming soon, we will be working on providing support and aligning our components with the release of the Bootstrap theme version.
In 2021, we are also focusing our efforts on improving the journey in the Theme Builder, as well as implementing sizing options for the existing themes and introducing dark theming options.
The TextBox and TextArea will soon have the configuration option to turn on or off the Character Counter feature next to the respective element. This ensures better user experience and gives clarity on the Character count as the user is typing in their content.
In 2021, we are also improving our MultiSelect control. You will be able to display a DropDown Arrow in the component.
One of the new additions you can expect in 2021 is a Task Board component that will allow you to create with ease Kanban-like boards and applications. With the TaskBoard you will be able to visually organize tasks and based on their progress and workflow, move them to respective columns.

The ActionSheet component will also ship in 2021. It represents a panel that complements the screen’s primary content and displays contextual actions available for the user to perform. The panel is usually located and appears from the bottom of the page or screen which makes it perfect for interaction on mobile devices.
