What's new in Essential Tools 2012 Vol 4?

  • HTML and JavaScript Controls - Added 15 HTML and JavaScript controls to Essential Tools for Mobile MVC. These controls run solely on the client side to improve performance and maintain lightness.
  • Toolbar Control for Windows Phone - The Toolbar control hosts application functions in an easy-to-access strip. It is similar to the native toolbar found in Windows Phone. It supports text, images, four built-in skins, templates, and data binding. When items in the toolbar are selected, they become highlighted. One added feature is that the toolbar can be displayed in gray but not operational.
  • Button Control for Windows Phone - Similar in appearance to the native button found in Windows Phone, the Button control will change backgrounds when clicked, and can be disabled, appearing in gray.
  • ListBox Control - The ListBox control presents selectable items in a list. Once an item is selected, an action is preformed or another page or list is displayed. This list box has been implemented for Windows Phone and adheres to the Windows Phone style.
  • Header Control for Windows Phone - The Header control is used to display text in the default style of Windows Phone.
  • Windows Phone Dialog Box - The Dialog control displays an alert or confirmation message. It has been molded to the Windows Phone style, and allows the following dialog elements to be modified: title, theme, display position, and dimension. It also prevents access to the page until the dialog is closed.
  • Menu Control - The Menu control provides two types of menus: a context menu and an options menu. The options menu expands from the bottom of the screen to reveal items that can be selected from a list. The context menu opens anywhere on the screen to reveal items.
  • Toggle Button - The toggle button switches between two states either by sliding or clicking the button. The default state of the control can be set, and the panel color can be specified.
  • Tab Control - The Tab control allows you to access multiple pages from a single page. These pages can be grouped under categorized tabs, and page content can be displayed by tapping on a tab or swiping to scroll through page content. Swiping past the last tab takes you back to the first tab.
  • AutoComplete - The AutoCompleteTextBox control helps users complete a word or phrase as it is being typed in a text box. With each keystroke, the control searches for a matching sequence of letters and returns a list of suggestions. Two modes are available: server and JSON.

What’s new in Essential Tools 2012 Volume 1?

  • Calendar Navigation for ASP.NET - The Calendar control has a navigation pane that makes browsing by day, week, month, year, and even decade easier. This JavaScript implementation is fast and gives users a fluid experience.
  • Rotator Control Improvements for ASP.NET - An auto-play button can be added to the Rotator control to allow users to automatically scroll a list up or down, and left or right, with one simple click. While in this button mode, the rotator control retains all its other features.
  • AutoComplete Control Enhancements for ASP.NET MVC - The AutoComplete control, used to suggest entries as users type in a text box, has been enhanced with client-side data fetching to increase performance, highlighting for searched text, customizable list positioning, and support for left-to-right text alignment.
  • Captcha Control Refresh for ASP.NET MVC - The Captcha control has a refresh button that allows you to regenerate an image of the code that has to be entered in the verification text box.
  • Dragging and Dropping Tree Nodes for ASP.NET MVC - With drag and drop support, tree nodes can be repositioned at different levels in the same tree or dropped into a different tree, even if the other tree has different characteristics. For example, when dragging a node that doesn’t have a check box to a tree where nodes do have check boxes, the dragged node will automatically take on a check box.
  • Splitter Control for ASP.NET MVC - The Splitter control can be used to create separate panes in a work area that can be resized or collapsed by dragging or clicking. Any number of panes and split bars can be created. Features include horizontal or vertical orientation, pane resizing, content template support and collapsible panes.
  • TimePicker Control for ASP.NET MVC - When you need to set a time, the TimePicker control makes time selection easy by giving users a grid of values that can be selected just by clicking. Four primary fields can be set: hours, minutes, seconds, and a.m. or p.m. Also, by just hovering over a value, the display will be updated instantly—a live update. Minimum and maximum values are also supported.

Syncfusion Essential Tools for WPF Docking Manager
The Docking Manager is an advanced container control that automatically lays out its children within docked panels, just as seen in Visual Studio .NET. This element can be used in XAML, just as easily as it is used in grid or canvas elements. The attached properties can be used to specify the dock state and position of the child elements. End-users can then fully customize the user interface by dragging the dock panels to different locations within the container, floating and arranging them within tabs in the dock panel, or hiding the dock panel.
