UI for WPF
With the Fall Creators Update, Microsoft will be introducing new design system. True to our calling to always deliver the latest UI and UX trends, we plan on including a Fluent inspired theme to Telerik UI for WPF. By incorporating the Fluent design to your application, you will have a modern look and feel, without any loss in quality or performance. Stay tuned!
In the next release of Telerik UI for WPF, we are planning to include the editing functionality to the PivotGrid control. This new feature will enable your users to change the values in a pivot table, which will automatically recalculate the values in the control, based on the new values. This can come quite handly, when you would like to see the outcomes of a certain event with other values.
We will be extending the functionality of the Telerik UI for WPF ComboBox control with the ability to navigate to items within the control while typing with your keyboard. When you press the first letter of a record, or type in the first couple letters of an item, when a match is found, it will be selected.
In the next release of Telerik UI for WPF, we plan to include support for the Algorithm 4 encryption, which will enable you to open documents with this encryption within your WPF application.
We will be adding the ability to easily pair your PDFViewer and Spreadsheet controls at design time with the predefined toolbars.
In the second release of the year for Telerik UI for WPF, we are planning to continue our commitment to bringing more theming options for your desktop applications. Following the Fluent Theme (from R1), we will be introducing a MacOS inspired theme, delivering the renown Mac OS look and feel to your WPF apps. The team at Apple have been a trend setter with their clean UI and with the MacOS theme you will be able to bring that style to your own apps.
Data Visualization is a common scenario and requirement for many Windows applications. In the same time, delivering meaningful data should be provided in a visually appealing way for the end user. With the introduction of animations to our charting component, you will be able to deliver beautiful and highly-engaging data visualization UI to your applications.
In the R2 release of 2018, we will be introducing support for Charts within the Spreadsheet and SpreadProcessing components. Through this new feature, you will be able to add Charts into the spreadsheets in your desktop applications. The functionality also spans over to our SpreadProcessing component, which is often used to modify spreadsheets in code or export files to Excel.
The format painter functionality is useful feature for the end-users of RichTextBox that allows applying (copying) of certain text format from one part of the document to another. A fast way to format your documents which is widely used and expected by an MS Word user.
The MaskedInput control allows for restricting the user input for a predefined format, so the application always gets proper values from the end-users. Think of phone numbers, zip codes, SSN. With the pre-built masks, you will save time and efforts when in need to use the most common mask types as these will be there for them to use with a single click.
In the last release of the year, a new control will be making its way to the Telerik UI for WPF suite - The MultiColumnComboBox. There are certain scenarios, like saving real estate on a screen or allowing easier searching for a record in a vast array of data, in which a grid control in a drop down is what gets the job done. This is exactly what the MultiColumnComboBox control will offer - a ComboBox with a Grid in the dropdown.
With this new feature in the PDFViewer control, you will be able to easily embed bookmarking functionality in your WPF applications. The bookmakrs allow for saving and faster searching and navigation to different parts of a certain PDF Document (e.g. Table of Contents). This could save end users valuable time in navigating through a PDF file and find the needed information faster.
Another powerful feature making its way to the Telerik UI for WPF suite is the ability to embed controls in a Word document. This functionality is especially valuable for application form scenarios, like leave request form, where you need to input a start date, end date and the type of leave (paid, unpaid, etc). All of the input could be handled by embedding other controls into the RichTextBox, facilitating the overall experience and usability of forms. With this release, the RichTextBox will provide support for the the Rich Text, Plain Textm Check Box, Combo Box, Drop-down List and Date Picker controls.
We are planning to deliver another functionality to the RichTextBox - Paste Options. It will enable a common Word feature, where you can choose the formatting of the pasted text - keeping the original formatting or merging it the one already in place in the document.
This feature will allow you to deliver an even better experience when working with the ImageEditor control. By incorporating the selection modes, the application's end-users will be able to select certain parts of the document to crop or apply effects to.
