We're pleased to announce the official launch of GrapeCity's newest product line: ComponentOne Studio for Xamarin!
In order to ensure our customers get the fastest, most flexible controls available, Xuni's native mobile development team has directed its focus to developing the best Xamarin controls on the market. This new architecture adds UWP support, provides support for Xamarin’s visual designers, and brings up to twice the performance of the previous version of Xuni.
The newly restructured controls still have all the speed, flexibility, and easy-to-read API of the existing charts, grids, and gauges, but they've been rebuilt to focus specifically on Xamarin. These restructured controls include some new features as well, like the addition of pull-to-refresh and zooming to FlexGrid.
Included in ComponentOne Studio for Xamarin are controls for Xamarin.Forms, Xamarin.iOS, and Xamarin.Android. Customers can buy Xamarin.iOS and Xamarin.Android as separate editions, but we recommend the full complement of products to achieve the best native mobile reach.
The Xuni product line--which includes Xuni Enterprise, Xuni Xamarin, Xuni iOS, and Xuni Android, will be sunsetted with the launch of ComponentOne Studio for Xamarin. Current license holders will be granted licenses to the new product that corresponds with their current license:

Wijmo's FlexGrid now meets ARIA standards for accessibility according to the grid guidelines. We've worked with our partner, Microsoft, and other key companies to ensure that FlexGrid meets their strict requirements, as well. After many iterations, we've successfully created a grid that all modern accessibility tools can interpret extensively. We have also added keyboard shortcuts so that FlexGrid feels familiar to all end users.
Built-in ARIA 1.1 support has been added to the following controls:
Added two new properties to improve FlexGrid keyboard accessibility: keyActionTab and keyActionEnter. These properties allow you to customize the behavior of special keys so the grid becomes more accessible or more compatible with Excel.
Added a new property to improve FlexGrid screen-reader accessibility: rowHeaderPath. If provided, this property specifies the name of a binding to use as a provider of ‘row header’ accessibility values. If not provided, most readers will use the content of the first visible column as the row header.
