Telerik UI for WPF
To be in pace with the evolution of .NET 8, the 160+ Telerik UI for WPF controls offer day-zero support for .NET 8's latest preview.
SlideView is the newest member to the WPF control suite. It is a versatile navigation component that facilitates transitioning between different views. It offers an engaging and interactive navigation experience, utilizing customizable navigation buttons and glyphs known as pips. Additionally, the SlideView control features animation and orientation options.
The newly added PipsPager control is designed to help you while navigating through a linearly paginated collection. The WPF control has glyphs known as pips that indicate the current page in a collection and allow you to switch the page by clicking on another pip. There are customizable navigation buttons that also help with the navigation. The control is not limited to a standard horizontal orientation and offers a vertical option as well.
There is a new addition to the Telerik UI for WPF themes called Windows11Compact. This theme draws inspiration from the modern aesthetics of Windows 11, while offering a distinct advantage—it occupies less screen space.
By adopting a more compact size for the controls, it ensures a visually appealing interface without compromising functionality. The Windows11Compact theme features dynamic resources and multiple variations: System, Light and Dark.

The recent improvement in the DataGrid search functionality offers a more intuitive approach for end-users to find their desired matches effortlessly. Upon entering a symbol in the search box, the control instantly performs a search operation, providing real-time results even before you have finished typing. This enables users to quickly and efficiently locate the information they are looking for.
The SyntaxEditor search window now includes two new options for more comprehensive searches of specific content throughout the control. End-users can perform Regex searches and include multiple conditions for more advanced search patterns. Additionally, now there is a case-sensitive search option for when users know exactly what they are looking for.
The WPF TreeView control has been enhanced by a new option, ensuring that node selection occurs when the left mouse button is released. This improvement enables the addition of custom logic just before the node selection takes place, providing you with more flexibility and control over the selection process.
