Telerik UI for Winforms
With 2024 Q1 the WinForms themes have 2 new additions – Windows 11 Compact and Windows 11 Compact Dark. Users will experience compact alternatives to the previously introduced Windows 11 themes. The new additions are best suited for busy WinForms applications when you need a little more space and a cleaner aesthetic.
With the latest release, WinForms GridView allows you to show summary rows for collapsed groups. Users will see the summary rows at a single glance without having to expand each group individually. Note that this feature is relevant only when the GridView is grouped.
With this release, the WinForms GridView API offers a new event called AutoGeneratingColumn. It is triggered when a new column is created and allows you to cancel the creation of a specific column with ease.
We need that speed is crucial for our clients and that is why with the 2024 Q1 release, both GridView and RichTextEditor are improved in terms of performance. The GridView has performance optimizations in the copy and paste operations and the RichTextEditor is quicker in exporting documents to PDF.
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.
