What's New in v1 2015
New features in the latest release of ComponentOne Studio .NET controls for WinForms, WPF, ASP.NET, WinRT, Windows Phone, and Silverlight.
ASP.NET Web Forms
EventsCalendar Custom View
Create custom views in EventsCalendar with ease, now you can define your own views. For example, display a two week view or two months view.
The EventsCalendar control now supports exporting to a PDF file or to an image file by using an export service; the exported file shows events and the EventsCalendar UI.
New Chart Navigator Control
The new C1ChartNavigator lets you create Overview Plus Detail charts using our Bar/Column, Line/Area and CandleStick charts.
New ComponentOne Studio ASP.NET MVC Edition
Our newest edition, the ASP.NET MVC Edition provides a set of modern UI controls built on all the latest technologies, including HTML5, CSS, and ECMAScript 5, without making compromises to support legacy browsers. The ComponentOne Studio ASP.NET MVC Edition features fast and lightweight controls ranging from data management to data visualization, project templates, and professionally designed themes.
Reports for WinForms includes several enhancements including an improved look and feel in the C1ReportDesigner application and in other UI components, improved Crystal Reports import, a non-paginated SSRS viewer (similar to Reports for WinRT), new text search bar as an alternative to the search panel in the C1PrintPreviewControl, and C1Report scripting enhancements (better designer script editor and "global" script module per report).
New RangeSlider Control
The new RangeSlider control in Input for WinForms goes beyond a basic slider control and provides two thumb elements instead of one, allowing end users to select data ranges at run time.
This release includes performance enhancements in GanttView for WinForms and the ability to add or delete tasks conditionally.
Right-to-left Support in Tiles
Tiles for WinForms now includes RTL (Right-to-left) support to improve localization in your apps.
OLAP for WinForms now includes SASS Cube Support and asynchronous processing. At run time users can build reports from cube data just like regular data sets.
Asynchronous OLAP Processing
OLAP for WPF now features improved performance with asynchronous data processing. Now when users create complex pivots or work with large data sets, the C1Olap controls will work in the background freeing up the user interface thread so the application remains responsive.
New FlexSheet Control (Beta)
FlexSheet is a new spin on an old classic. Extending the C1FlexGrid control, C1FlexSheet provides additional Microsoft Excel-like functionality for your WPF applications. Easily import spreadsheets, apply formulas, manipulate rows and perform cell styling. It's the FlexGrid you know and love but with more features aimed at delivering a more Excel-like experience.
Add Bar Codes to WPF Apps

ShapeFile Support in Maps
Maps for WPF now allows you to provide custom map layers and custom shapes drawn on top of maps using ShapeFile formatted geographic files.

ShapeFile Support in Maps
Maps for WinRT now allows you to provide custom map layers and custom shapes drawn on top of maps using ShapeFile formatted geographic files.
