What's New R3 2022

What's New History

New Component: Circular Progress Bar

With R3 2022, you can take advantage of a new WPF Circular Progress Bar component. It is a visual component that is rendered on the screen when an application process is in progress. The Circular Progress Bar is suitable for business applications and other solutions computing vast amounts of data.

Feature Highlights

  • Segments – the component can be split into multiple segments to indicate gradual progress.
  • Color ranges – the Circular Progress Bar supports defining ranges with different colors.
  • Determinate and indeterminate states – a determinate state shows a specific amount of progress. The indeterminate one plays an animation when progress cannot be measured.
  • Customizable content – the progress content is highly customizable.
  • Indeterminate state customization – you can modify the animation played when the component is in an indeterminate state.
  • Radius manipulation – the progress indicator is customizable, and you can track inner and outer radiuses.
  • Angels – the beginning and ending angles of the component can be controlled for a more customized appearance.
  • Secondary progress indicator – the component allows visualizing a secondary progress indicator. This is intended for scenarios where the primary indicator depends on the process of the secondary one.

Syntax Editor: Word Wrapping Support

The WPF Syntax Editor component is now enhanced with word wrapping functionality. When enabled, your end-users don’t need a horizontal scrollbar anymore because the text section that does not fit the visible width of the component will be moved to the next line.
