Telerik UI for Winforms
The WinForms Splash Screen is the newest member of the suite. Its purpose is to indicate that an application is loading by showing a Splash Screen form. It allows you to display a Telerik-themed control and customize the image of the splash screen, its animations and loading process visualization.
This WinForms Overlay component enables you to display a transparent window with a loading indicator over a form or a control. You will find this useful whenever a longer-running background process is being handled by the application. This makes the UI more informative and the user experience smoother.
The WinForms Flyout Screen is an overlay that combines a message box and a pop-up control in one. If you want to notify the user that he needs to reenter his credentials to continue working on the application, this control is a perfect choice.
Data visualization and data summary capabilities in the workbook are improved thanks to the WinForms Spreadsheet charts support. This means that displaying charts and adding and removing chart objects in the spreadsheet documents is now possible.
Supported chart types:
With R3 2022, the Telerik UI for WinForms suite now offers .NET 4.8 distribution and .NET 2.0 distribution was removed. Additionally, you can get the .NET Core projects of the Telerik source code.
With R3 2022, we’ve released new features across all Document Processing Libraries to support you better navigate your document formats. The new WordsProcessing features you can use are page numbering fields and shapes support. While field codes have been supported, now we’ve added functionality that allows you to update the PAGE, PAGEREF, NUMPAGES and SECTIONPAGES fields and easily calculate their result—Page Numbering fields.
The Shapes support feature allows you to easily insert or interact with existing shapes like circles, boxes, arrows and many others directly in your documents. You can style the inserted shapes by using gradient fills and various pattern outlines, as well as change the size of the shapes and rotate them.
This new feature enables you to specify a row or a column that will be repeated on every printed page.
With the new PdfProcessing Signatureflags support functionality, you can specify that there is a signature even if the signature itself does not have a visual representation. With R3 2022, we’ve also added the ability to convert the pages of a .pdf document to images. Export PDF pages to images will work with the .NET Standard version and does not depend on any Windows libraries.
With R3 2022, we’ve added SpreadStreamProcessing import functionality. It allows you to read large XLSX or CSV files without loading the entire document in memory. This improves performance and the memory footprint compared to the RadSpreadProcessing library.
With the November 2022 update, we’ve released day-zero support for .NET 7 for all Telerik .NET products, including WinForms, and their respective Visual Studio extensions. In addition, we’ve updated the demos and project templates to .NET 7 and launched new components and improvements. With this instant support, you can either upgrade your existing projects, start a new project using .NET 7 and Telerik UI for WinForms right away or do both.
