What's new in XtraCharts 13.2?

  • Legend Check Boxes:  This release includes legend checkboxes which allow end-users to toggle the visibility of various chart elements.
  • Data Dependent Aggregation:  The DevExpress WinForms Chart Control is now able to aggregate data based upon chart size and its current zoom level.

What's new in XtraCharts 13.1?

  • New Control Designer UI:  Design-time customization dialogs for our WinForms Controls have been re-designed for improved usability and a more consistent user experience.
  • Contextual Smart Tags:  WinForms Navigation Controls (including the Ribbon, Toolbars, NavBar) now display Smart Tags for their individual elements. This allows a customer to customize the control's layout and main settings with a few simple clicks, without using the Property Grid. We've also reviewed and extended our Smart Tags based on the usage experience of the controls.

New WinForms Data Source Wizard
Available via a Smart Tag or the clickable label on any DevExpress data-aware control, this wizard helps you set up your Data Source in three easy steps. In the first step, the Wizard lists all data sources found in the solution, categorized by the data access technologies. If needed, you can select a data access technology and create a new data source. Once the data source has been selected or created, you choose a data binding mode from a list (all list items have short descriptions and links to our online documentation). Finally, the third step allows you to customize Control and Data Source specific settings. After you click Finish, the wizard adds a data source component to the form, binds the control and generates all necessary code.

Visual Studio Template Gallery
Prior to 13.1, DevExpress offered numerous Project/Item Templates that were created over many release cycles. These templates could be found in various locations within Visual Studio. This release includes a fully consolidated DevExpress Template Gallery - the entry point for all Project/Item Templates. The Template Gallery provides a unified way to use DevExpress templates, features powerful filtering and searching mechanisms and contains sample images and descriptions for each template, thus simplifying the way in which selections are made for individual projects. 13.1 also includes improvements to shipping templates and offers additional template options.

FormAssistant component:  This helper component is designed for first time users. When placed on the application form, it allows you to

  • Convert between various form types (Form, XtraForm, RibbonForm)
  • Select a skin
  • Automatically initialize a skin engine to enable form skinning
  • Add the BonusSkins library to the project's References section
  • Specify basic form settings

Over 60 Chart Types
The Xtra Charts Suite helps you transform data to its most appropriate, concise and readable visual representation. To guarantee the highest levels of flexibility at both design and runtime, the Suite delivers dozens of 2D and 3D chart types - ranging from bars and doughnuts to line and financial views.

  • 2D Chart Types
  • 3D Chart Types
  • Financial Chart Types

Flexible Data Binding, Intuitive Design Time Tools
Chart your data - regardless of its source. Like other DevExpress data-aware controls, the data source you supply for the chart can be any object that supports the IList or IEnumerable interface. Therefore, you can bind the control to a table from a database or to any collection created in code.

If you need to use unbound mode, you need not create nor maintain any external data structures - you can provide data for Xtra Charts directly. Each Series object provides a point collection so you can populate each individual series as needed.

An easy-to-use built in chart wizard allows you to customize the main elements of a given chart. Invoked each time you drop a chart control onto your form, the wizard has been designed to reduce the amount of time required to configure a chart, regardless of complexity.

In addition, you can select nearly any chart element on-screen and immediately access its settings via the Properties window. This unique capability allows us to eliminate restrictive modal designer dialogs so you can work with the chart within the form designer and focus your energies on the chart and not on intrusive modal dialog windows.

Appearance Customization, Smart Labels, Titles and Annotations
With the Xtra Charts Suite, you no longer have to waste energy creating visually appealing and color consistent chart series. Numerous built-in palettes (or style schemes) are available to you so you can automatically color bars in a bar view, sectors in a pie view, etc.

Smart Labels, Titles and Annotations: The Chart Control allows you to display a label for each data point. These labels can display either the point's value, argument (useful for pie charts), both argument and value or a series name. You can manually specify label visibility and appearance, shadow style, and also its connector line's angle and length. In addition, you can display an unlimited number of titles within a single chart. Each individual title provides endless customization possibilities, including HTML-like text formatting.

You can also create text or image annotations anchored to a chart, pane, or series point. You can fully customize layout, positioning and appearance by using the chart's repository; and end-users can easily move, resize and rotate annotation items.

Multi-Dimensional Data Analysis, Reporting and Range Selection
Perform deep analysis of underlying chart data and easily compute summaries, averages, totals, custom functions, and automatically calculate then display regression lines for the specified set of data points. Turn information displayed within the DevExpress Pivot Grid into an interactive chart by simply specifying the Pivot Grid as the chart's data source.

Built-in integration with both the Xtra Printing Library and Xtra Reports Suite means that charts can be embedded within any banded report, printed or exported to numerous file formats with absolute ease.

Give users the ability to visually specify the appropriate data range and radically improve the end-user experience as a result. Native integration with the DevExpress Range Control means that the contents of a chart series can be visualized within the Range Control’s Viewport, without writing a single line of code.

Touch, Crosshairs, Tooltips, Zooming and Scrolling
The Xtra Charts allows end-users to dig deep into information stored within a chart and directly interact with its contents. Built-in tooltips and crosshair cursors help users discover the details underlying a chart. The ability to zoom and scroll helps users get to actionable information quickly. And when only touch will do, Xtra Charts provides touch support so you can target Windows 8 Pro and create next generation solutions, today.

In addition, Xtra Charts provides you with a chart Ribbon generator, which makes it easy to add chart editing capabilities to your Ribbon UI application. These Ribbon tabs allow your end-users modify chart type, appearance, adjust its settings, save it to the disk, print and import to popular formats.
