Q3 2011

New Controls:

ChartView

RadChartView

Our brand new Telerik ChartView control empowers users to understand and analyze complex data and ensures great performance for your data visualization endeavors. The new architecture comes to serve the numerous requests for improvements of our RadChart offering. RadChartView uses the charting engine from our Windows Phone 7 chart and guarantees flexibility, advanced customization options and unique performance.

EntityFrameworkDataSource

RadEntityFrameworkDataSource

This component ensures seamless integration between Telerik data controls and an EntityCollection. Binding to RadEntityFrameworkDataSource is straightforward and absolutely codeless. Thanks to the EntityFrameworkDataSource control your app will stay responsive as all data operations are executed on the server.

VirtualizingWrapPanel

RadVirtualizingWrapPanel

RadVirtualizingWrapPanel boosts the performance of your ListBox/ListView when binding to a large amount of data. The control generates only the visible items and positions them in a sequential position from left to right and top to bottom, breaking content to the next line at the edge of its containing box.

BarCode

RadBarCode

RadBarcode allows you to accurately track your physical products with native high-quality vector-based images that follow the most popular and widely-adopted barcode symbologies.

SpellChecker

RadSpellChecker

RadSpellChecker can check the spelling of various input controls. It can be even adapted to work with your custom controls and use custom dictionaries. You can integrate it to work over the RadGridView cells.

Calculator

RadCalculator

With this new control you can rapidly execute arithmetic operations with classic calculator functionality or enjoy RadCalculator in a space-saving drop-down control, allowing users to use calculations in editing and input scenarios.

ColorEditor

RadColorEditor

RadColorEditor enables you to add color editing functionality for easier customization through support for major color types (including RGB, HSV, HLS, CMYK, and HEX), Alpha Channel and Color history. Modify the alpha channel to provide transparency or quickly repeat selections.

Changes:

RadGridView

RadGridView

Important Changes:

  • The default filter editor for numeric types is now TextBox instead of RadMaskedTextBox.
  • The StringFilterEditor control has two new properties now -- Text and IsCaseSensitive. If you create this editor manually instead of relying on the FilterEditorFactory, you have to bind these two properties to the "Value" and "IsCaseSensitive" properties of the view model respectively.
  • Deleting the entire text from the StringFilterEditor will now clear the filter instead of filtering on string.Empty.

What's New:

  • Added: RadGridView.FilterOperatorsLoading event.

  • Fixed: Nullable comparable types do not offer the comparison filtering operators like their non-nullable counterparts do.
  • Fixed: The distinct values of a nullable type column are not displayed when there is a null value among them.
  • Fixed: Case-insensitive filtering for string.Empty or null values generates unneeded ToLower() calls that distort the filtering result.
