RadChart v4.0

What’s New:

The new version of RadChart comes with a number of novel features and enhancements delivering rich functionality and data presentation capabilities. Its innovative rendering engine provides remarkable performance quality and polished images, enhancing the overall user experience. RadChart introduces also:

  1. YAxis supports logarithmic scaling
  2. A new CandleStick financial chart
  3. Support for spline curve areas. The curve behaves the same way the normal spline curve does, but also offers the possibility to fill the belonging area.
  4. RadChart now features a so-called "strict mode" for bar series. All XValues will be respected and bars will be positioned according to their XValues. If, however, you don't have any series items with XValues then RadChart will resume standard sequential ordering of each item.
  5. Support for empty values approximation. If your dataset is missing a value RadChart can approximate it for you.
  6. Scalebreaks allowing you to "break off" large chunks of the axis so that graphs with great amplitudes are easier to read.
  7. New intelligent labels dramatically increasing readability in very busy charts. The charting engine now supports newline in all chart labels
  8. The new Marked Zones now provide another option for chart customization
  9. Labelstep feature which allows for spacing out labels

RadCombobox v2.8

What’s New:

  1. Improved client-side Validation.
  2. New AfterClientCallBackError client-side event.
  3. New ErrorMessage property that shows a custom error message after the Load On Demand CallBack error appears.
  4. New TextChanged server event.

What’s Fixed:

  1. The SelectedIndexChanged event fires only when the selected item has been changed. Even if the item has been changed with some custom text and the combobox gets blurred, the SelectedIndexChenged event will also be fired.
  2. The OnClientSelectedIndexChanged event also fires under the conditions described above.
  3. The OnClientBlur, OnClientFocus and KeyBoard Navigation now work as expected without any side effects and limitations.
  4. You can start the combobox with no selected item in it. If you set the Text property of the control to a text that does not match any of the items in the list (including an empty string " "), no item will be selected. The MarkFirstMatch property should be enabled in this case.
  5. When the matched item is highlighted it appears on the top of the list.
  6. When the containing div is resized, the drop-down area stays stuck to the input field. It does not freeze any longer.
  7. No empty text is persisted in the input field when the MarkFirstMatch is on and the AllowCustomText is off
