What's New History

New Component: StepProgressBar

This new control allows you to visualize a complex and lengthy process in your WPF application. The StepProgressBar control for WPF enables you to set up a visual element that displays a multi-step process via a number of different steps and a progress track bar between each step. Selecting a step will animate a progress movement from the previously selected step to the new one.

This UI control is ideal for scenarios where you want to guide the users through a complex process by making it easy and intuitive for them to complete. The control covers many use cases, from orders and multistep forms to onboarding.

The Telerik UI for WPF StepProgressBar comes with various features, including:

  • Flexible customizations: Easily customize the track bar and its various steps.
  • Data binding support: Allows you to provide a collection of any objects that can store information for each step.
  • Horizontal and vertical orientations: The out-of-the-box orientation of the control is horizontal, but it can be customized to appear vertically.
  • Selection: The steps in the progress bar can be selected in code or via a click in the UI.
  • Additional content: Each step can display content on top and bottom of its visual element.

We are happy to remind you that in the last months of 2021, we ensured that the Telerik UI for WPF suite is fully compatible with both .NET 6 and Visual Studio 2022!

Support for Rounded Corners for Windows controls

With Windows 11 being out for a few months now, we decided to implement their new design aesthetic of rounded corners across all our WPF Window controls, including: Window, TabbedWindow, RibbonWindow and the Docking ToolWindow. With R1 2022, all these controls now support a CornerRadius property out-of-the-box.

WatermarkTextBox: Added Support for an Embedded Label

The Telerik UI for WPF WatermarkTextBox is now equipped with an embedded label. The label plays the role of a placeholder and displays as a watermark content when the TextBox control is unfocused and there is no text input in the field. Once the control gets focused and the text is entered, the label is positioned on top of the input area.

Conditional formatting for SpreadProcessing

The Telerik SpreadProcessing library comes with a brand-new feature which allows you to format the cells depending on their value. The feature supports multiple formatting rules - from simple ones such as changing fill and font to more complex formatting rules for data bars, color scales, and icon sets. 


Spreadsheet and SpreadProcessing: Notes Support

The Notes functionality of the Telerik Spreadsheet and SpreadProcessing libraries is used for making annotations about the data of a specific cell. This new feature allows you to easily work with notes via the UI - quickly and easily add, remove, edit, resize, show or hide the cell annotations through a button in the review tab, or directly from the context menu. 


WordsProcessing: Nested Mail Merge

This new functionality of the Telerik WordsProcessing document library enables you to perform mail merge with complex business objects. In cases when your business objects contain a list of other objects, this neat functionality allows you to use the underlying objects when performing mail merge.
