Telerik UI for WPF

We strongly encourage you to migrate your applications to the latest LTS versions of .NET currently supported by Telerik UI for WPF: .NET 6.0 and .NET 8.0. Upgrading to the latest .NET version will enable you to take full advantage of the latest features, performance improvements, and security enhancements provided by both Microsoft and Telerik.

IME Support in SyntaxEditor

New feature
This feature will enable SyntaxEditor to handle input from IME, ensuring seamless integration of complex character languages.

WPF GridView Enhancements and Improvements

New feature
Our goal with every release is not only to add new controls but also to keep enhancing the functionality and performance of existing Telerik UI for WPF controls. That’s why in the upcoming releases we have planned several new features in the GridView pipeline, including Keyboard Support for data operations, GroupHeaderRowHeight property, and other improvements based on your feedback. We know that the GridView is one of the controls that you count on the most in managing and presenting data in your apps and we want to offer you the optimal developer experience when it comes to rendering tables of data.

Support for .NET 8 Official

New feature

.NET 8, the successor of .NET 7, will receive long-term support (LTS) for a duration of three years. It is anticipated to be officially released in early November 2023. The Telerik UI for WPF team is committed to offering immediate support for .NET 8 upon its release. 

 

 

ChartView Improvement: Support for ScatterBar Series Type

New feature

The WPF team always aims to enhance our suite based on customers’ feedback. In the upcoming releases, we are planning to add a new ChartView series type called ScatterBar. As with all scatter series, this one will also require the ChartView to define two LinearAxis as the vertical and horizontal axis. This will enable scenarios such as creating and visualizing a histogram - a bar graph that represents a frequency distribution. In this scenario, the width represents an interval, and the height represents the corresponding frequency.
