Nuova versione

Funzionalità

New MongoDB Data Source

  • The Data Source Configuration Wizard allows you to connect and retrieve data from a MongoDB database. The MongoDB data source allows you to select the desired database name, document collection name and define the appropriate server-side filtering clause.

Data Grid

  • Search Boxes within Column Headers
    • Column headers can now display search boxes. Users can click a search icon and enter filter criteria within column headers.
  • TileView - Conditional Formatting
    • The Tile View now offers Conditional Formatting support. You can highlight tiles and individual tile elements (fields) based on specified criteria without writing a single line of code. Tiles can be highlighted using icons and predefined color scales.
  • Filter Panel - MRU Filters
    • The Filter Panel displays separate tokens with filters for each column. In this version, the MRU filter list (most recently used filters) has been incorporated and the new Filter Panel has been enabled by default.
  • Filter Editor - Custom Expressions
    • Custom expressions that cannot be converted into Filter Editor nodes are now displayed within text fields. This ensures no expressions are lost. End-users can add custom expressions at runtime using a context menu.
  • Unbound Column Enhancements
    • You can now explicitly set an unbound column type. You can also specify previously unavailable types, such as TimeSpan or DateTimeOffset.
  • New Appearance Options for Detail Tabs
    • The new DetailTabStyle event allows you to customize captions, images, colors and font settings for detail tabs. A 'RefreshDetailTab(rowHandle)' method has been added to update detail tabs at runtime. You can also enable the 'OptionsView.AllowHtmlDrawDetailTabs' option to use HTML-inspired tags.

Charting

  • Memory Optimization and New Data Adapters
    • With this release, the WinForms Chart Control allocates less memory when used in data bound mode. This enhancement has increased the maximum number of visible data points for x86 apps without significant performance degradation (up to 20M).
    • The new data adapters (ISeriesAdapter and ISeriesTemplateAdapter) allow you to process complex data structures much faster. You can also implement a custom data adapter to process data as needed.

Diagram

  • Diagram Designer Enhancements
    • The WinForms Diagram Designer now ships with the following new features/capabilities:
      • Redesigned Shapes Panel.
      • Lightweight Docking Support.
      • Scrollbars Optimized for Touch Apps.

Editors

  • Output Data Type for Numeric Masks
    • You can now specify the output data type for an editor with a numeric mask. When a user enters values within the edit box, the data editor converts the input string to the output data type and assigns the result to the EditValue property.
  • End-Users can Change Mask Settings
    • The new 'EditMaskSettings' method displays the DevExpress "Mask Settings" dialog at runtime. This dialog allows end-users to modify mask options as needs dictate.
    • You can also use the new 'MaskSettings.Save' and 'MaskSettings.Restore' methods to persist and load mask settings when necessary.
  • Highlight Text
    • The new 'CustomHighlightText' event allows you to highlight both individual words and a word range. To use this new option, you must activate the WinForms Text Editor's Advanced Mode.

Gantt Control

  • Enhanced Printing
    • This release includes an overhauled WinForms Gantt print engine. Issues such as blurry content (noticeable when users zoom into a printed document) and performance degradation when using large zoom factors have been fixed.
    • Support for various print-related options and appearance settings available in other DevExpress WinForms controls have been added.
  • Advanced Automatic Scheduling Settings
    • The WinForms Gantt control now supports task constraints. These constraints allow a user to limit a task's start or finish date to a specific date or date range. Task constraint options include:
      • As Soon As Possible.
      • As Late As Possible.
      • Start No Earlier Than.
      • Start No Later Than.
      • Finish No Earlier Than.
      • Finish No Later Than.
      • Must Start On.
      • Must Finish On.
    • Task constraints can be set if the data source contains corresponding data fields. Use the new ConstraintTypeFieldName and ConstraintDateFieldName properties to specify data field names.

Map Control

  • Custom Start/End Caps for MapLine and MapPolyline
    • MapLine, MapPolyline and MapSpline vector items now include StartLineCap and EndLineCap properties. These properties allow you to display a custom shape at the beginning and at the end of each vector element.
  • Restrict Map Panning to an Area
    • You can now retain user focus on a specific region and prevent them from moving out of that area. Use the new 'MapControl.ScrollArea' property, to limit user access to map areas.
  • Colorizer for MapLine, MapPolyline and MapSpline
    • Colorizers can be applied to the following map vector items: MapLine, MapPolyline and MapSpline. Once calculated, the color is assigned to the line's Stroke property.
  • Bing Maps - New Map Types and GIS Providers
    • The BingMapDataProvider supports the following new map types: RoadGray, RoadLight, RoadDark.
    • A new BingMapDataProvider.TopLayer property has been added to set the display layer that renders atop the imagery set (BaseMap, Background, Foreground and TrafficFlow).
    • New GIS providers include:
      • BingTrafficIncidentDataProvider - Displays pushpins with traffic incident information.
      • BingRouteIsochroneDataProvider - Generates a semi-transparent polygon with a pushpin to visualize the distance reachable from a given location, and supports driving and walking modes.
    • BingRouteDataProvider also offers two new route optimization options: MinimizeTimeWithTraffic and MinimizeTimeAvoidClosure. Its new OptimizeWaypoints property rearranges route waypoints and reduces route cost.

PDF Viewer

  • Printing Enhancements
    • Improved the DirectX printing engine so that documents are printed faster, with a smaller print job size.

Pivot Grid

  • Async Data Processing Enhancements
    • DevExpress Pivot Grid can now invoke multiple operations in a background thread. The asynchronous API has been enhanced to return the Task<> object, so you can leverage the 'await' operator.

Ribbon, Bars and Docking

  • Ribbon - Empty Area Image
    • The WinForms Ribbon can now display an image within its empty/unused regions. Use the EmptyAreaImageOptions property to specify image settings. The 'ImageAlignment' and 'ImagePadding' properties specify image alignment and padding respectively.

    • The new API allows you to access ActiveX controls in code, obtain associated properties (type, name and ProgID) and remove these controls from a document when necessary.

Sankey Diagram

  • Selection
    • Users can now select diagram nodes and links. The Sankey Diagram control supports the following selection modes:
      • Single.
      • Multiple.
      • Extended (a combination of single and multiple selection modes).
    • Use the 'SankeyDiagram.SelectionMode' property to specify a desired selection mode.
  • Layout Customization
    • The Sankey Diagram now supports a linear layout algorithm. Use the LayoutAlgorithm property to customize node positioning:
      • ResolveOverlapping - Automatically repositions nodes to avoid link overlap.
      • NodeAlignment - Aligns all nodes: far, center or nears.
    • You can also implement a custom layout algorithm by deriving from 'SankeyLinearLayoutAlgorithm' or 'SankeyLayoutAlgorithmBase'.

Scheduler

  • Modern Microsoft Outlook-inspired UI Elements
    • Updated the Scheduler's interface to better replicate UI elements introduced in the most recent version of Microsoft Outlook.
      • Time Ruler now features label text settings and minor tickmark styles.

The High Contrast Skin is automatically activated once you enable the High Contrast Windows theme. To turn off automatic skin activation, disable the WindowsFormsSettings.TrackSystemHighContrastMode option.
    • The vector High Contrast Skin includes multiple color palettes.
  • Skin Patches
    • With the new skin patch support, you can make slight modifications to a standard DevExpress skin without duplicating the skin. A skin patch is a list of visual changes applied directly to a standard DevExpress Skin. Skin patches eliminate the need to generate/import custom skins for your project(s).

Spreadsheet

  • RC4 CryptoAPI Encryption
    • The Spreadsheet Document API and WinForms/WPF Spreadsheet controls can import and export RC4 CryptoAPI encrypted XLS files. RC4 CryptoAPI is now the default encryption method for binary files if you use the Strong encryption type to encrypt your documents.
