Telerik UI for WPF
In this release, we have been hard at work to bring the mighty RadVirtualGrid to an official version. With it, here is a list of the features that have been added, on top of architecture, performance and other improvements.
A highly-requested feature for our WPF UI is the open, save and browse folder file dialogs. The three new dialogs will provide themeable alternatives to the commonly used dialogs for a more consistent UI throughout the application and the rest of the controls.
We are introducing the Funnels Series Type to our ChartView component. This powerful functionality is very useful to visualize bottlenecks in various scenarios, such as sales processes, marketing lead qualification, website visitors, etc., by evaluating what percentage or number of people from a group have moved from one stage of the funnel to the next and the estimating the final pool.
In our R3 release, we are extending forms support with form filling in addition to the recently released forms display. Another feature which is included is editing, which will allow users to edit fields in PDF documents such as templates and applications in a formalized manner.
Our PDFViewer component is getting support for document signing. Following up on the signature display and verification function we made available in the last release, we are including the ability to also sign PDF documents in the PDFViewer. Now users will be able to display, verify and sign PDF documents in their WPF apps.
A new functionally coming to the GridView is Sticky group headers. By utilizing this functionality users areable to “freeze” the group header to remain visible while scrolling through the data in the grid. The functionality is especially useful, when you have multiple groups in a large table and require you to view the group headers, while browsing the dataset.
The MaskedTextInput control now features a ValueMode property that enables the Value to include literals and/or placeholders. The ComboBox control gets a new option to select values only when the control loses focus or the user presses the enter key—a commonly requested feature for applications that require data input.
We are including the ability to use the VLOOKUP, HLOOKUP and MATCH functions to our Spreadsheet control so that users can use it and easy find the required data in their workbooks. In addition, you are now able to take advantage of the DAYS function, which will help determining the number of days in a date range.
By extending our Theming mechanism to the GridSplitter control, users will be able to get a more consistent UI in the desktop apps when they use one of our Telerik UI for WPF Themes.
We have uploaded our WPF Demo application to the Windows Store. The application showcases all the controls available in the suite and gives users the opportunity to review the code and have a real example of the controls in action with preloaded data. For that purpose, we used the Desktop Bridge provided by Microsoft, which allowed us to easily convert the WPF app to appx and upload it to the store. So, if you have or are currently creating a WPF app, that could benefit from being published in the Windows Store (another monetization channel perhaps), take a look at the Desktop Bridge and rest assured that apps created with Telerik UI for WPF are fully compatible with the process.
In R3 2017, we are introducing an API that allows you to integrate any analytics provider with your Telerik UI for WPF application. This way, you can track the application health and feature usage with your favorite provider. By leveraging the built-in tracked features as well as adding your own events, you are able to see application usage and areas of improvement. An example how to integrate Google Analytics is available in our documentation. Same approach can be used for any analytics provider.
