Telerik UI for .NET MAUI
With the 2024 Q1 release, the .NET MAUI component suite has a new member – Slider. It displays a value in a predefined min-max range allowing end users to change it by dragging a thumb along a range track.
The Slider brings an engaging and interactive navigation experience into your .NET MAUI application thanks to a set of built-in features:
With 2024 Q1 the .NET MAUI DataGrid component provides the ability to search for specific data by using a configurable built-in search functionality, represented by a search panel UI.
You can control when to show the search panel as well as configure the way the search is performed and change the default behavior – search as you type. The search panel lists search options such as whether to match the case, or whether to filter the results, etc.
The .NET MAUI DataGrid provides customizable highlighting of the search results. Note that the matched chunks of text are also highlighted to make them easily noticeable.
The .NET MAUI PDF Viewer component now provides a text selection functionality and enables users to mark and highlight a portion of the text.
On mobile devices, the selection is initiated after pressing and holding the target text and using the two drag handles to modify the current selection. For desktop devices, the text selection is initiated through a mouse click, while dragging extends the current selection.
Once a user selects a portion of the text, they will see a customizable selection menu with a default Copy command to allow them to retrieve the selected text.
With 2024 Q1 the .NET MAUI Scheduler component comes with built-in customizable dialogs that will enable users to directly schedule their meetings inside the application within a few clicks. The Scheduler component now features the following dialogs:
Another Scheduler improvement is the built-in date formatting support. Now you can customize each Scheduler view to use custom formats for displaying dates and times on the time ruler and in the headers.
The .NET MAUI RichTextEditor comes with a built-in context menu. Users will find this helpful to perform operations, such as “Select All”, “Cut”, “Copy”, “Paste”, and move content between apps or within an app.
For desktop, the context menu opens on a right-button click over the editor's content. On Android and iOS, it appears as soon as the user performs selection.
You can modify the default context menu and add or remove some of the provided options or set your own custom options.
With the 2024 Q1 the PDF Processing allows embedding file streams into documents. Therefore, the content of the referenced files is embedded directly within the body of the PDF file.
Another PDF Processing enhancement is the support for adding embedded ZUGFeRD invoices into documents. This invoice consists of two formats – PDF and XML and it is a hybrid file, which has a visual component with the PDF and a data-based offshoot for further, automated processing with the XML.
We’ve introduced a new encryption algorithm in the Zip Library – AES encryption. It is best suited to secure sensitive information, such as credit card numbers, passwords, and personal data. You can read and extract AES-protected archives with ease.
