What's new in XtraEditors 13.1?

  • TreeListLookUpEdit: A lookup editor that utilizes our TreeList for its drop-down list.
  • SparklineEdit: Sparklines are used to visualize data in a highly condensed manner allowing end-users to quickly consume and compare data. The DevExpress Sparkline is designed for use in 3 use-case scenarios: standalone, inside data-aware container controls like the WinForms Data Grid or within Reports.
  • PopupGalleryEdit: A new drop-down editor that displays a GalleryControl within its popup.
  • New Touch-Optimized Controls:  Multiple new touch-friendly controls are now available, including DatePicker, TimePicker, ToggleSwitch.
  • 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.

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.
