Divide Large Datasets into More Manageable Pages

July 19, 2024
By loading data in smaller chunks, paging reduces the initial load time and enhances responsiveness, especially with extensive datasets.

Grid paging is a user interface technique that divides large datasets into smaller, manageable pages within a grid or table. This significantly enhances performance by reducing the amount of data processed and displayed at once, improving load times and responsiveness, particularly when dealing with extensive datasets. Paging also enhances user experience by providing a clear structure for navigating through information, helping to prevent the user from being overwhelmed with excessive data.

Several Blazor grid controls offer paging support including:

  • DevExpress Blazor Grid (part of DevExpress ASP.NET and Blazor) facilitates efficient handling of large datasets through advanced paging options.
  • Telerik UI for Blazor Grid (part of Telerik UI for Blazor) empowers developers to implement paging for large datasets, enhancing performance and user experience.
  • Infragistics Blazor Data Grid (part of Infragistics Ignite UI) provides robust grid paging capabilities, optimizing performance and enabling users to explore extensive data.
  • Syncfusion Blazor DataGrid (part of Syncfusion Essential Studio Enterprise) provides flexible paging customization for tailored data presentation.

Declutter Charts to Focus on What Matters Most

July 9, 2024
.NET Blazor Charts with show/hide series functionality let users filter multi-series data for focused viewing and detailed analysis.

In chart controls, show/hide series functionality empowers developers to dynamically control the visibility of individual data sets. This allows users to focus on specific series, enhancing data comprehension and analysis. By selectively hiding irrelevant series, developers can declutter the chart, making it easier for users to identify trends and patterns within the data of interest.

Several .NET Blazor chart controls offer show/hide series support including:

  • DevExpress Blazor Chart, part of DevExpress ASP.NET and Blazor, facilitates in-depth data exploration by letting you hide irrelevant series for focused analysis.
  • ComponentOne Charts for Blazor, part of ComponentOne Studio Blazor Edition, enables you to dynamically control chart complexity through series visibility.
  • FusionCharts Blazor Suite XT, part of FusionCharts Suite XT, enhances user interaction with on-demand series toggling for clear data comparison.
  • NOV Chart for .NET by Nevron, offers granular control over chart content, including the ability to hide individual data series.
  • TeeChart .NET for Blazor by Steema Software, allows you to tailor chart visualizations by selectively showing or hiding specific data series.

Choosing a Blazor UI suite with theme support allows you to easily build consistent, visually appealing user interfaces that match your brand.

UI suites with theming support provide pre-built themes and the ability to customize them. This lets you easily change the look and feel of your application, from colors and fonts to overall design style (like Material Design or Bootstrap), ensuring a cohesive user experience that aligns with your brand identity. Theming not only improves aesthetics but also simplifies development by offering a pre-defined styling base and reducing the need for extensive custom styling.

Cascading Parameters Refine Dashboard Exploration

June 25, 2024
DevExpress BI Dashboard 24.1 streamlines user interaction by dynamically filtering dependent parameters based on parent selections.

DevExpress BI Dashboard (part of DevExpress Universal) empowers you to craft interactive dashboards for desktop, web and mobile applications. It provides a visual designer for building dashboards without writing code, allowing you to drag-and-drop various data visualization widgets onto the canvas. These widgets connect to your data sources and update dynamically, offering real-time insights to end users. The tool also supports customization through properties and events, enabling you to tailor the look and feel of the dashboards to perfectly integrate with your application's design.

The DevExpress BI Dashboard 24.1 release adds support for cascading parameters. This powerful feature allows you to create intuitive filter hierarchies within your dashboards. Imagine selecting a value in a parent parameter, then watching as the options in a dependent parameter automatically update to reflect the chosen filter. This eliminates the need for users to manually navigate through potentially overwhelming dropdown lists, fostering a more focused and efficient experience. Cascading parameters empower you to design dashboards that guide users towards deeper insights within your data.
