Let's dive in...

React Improvements

React has exploded in popularity and we have been working to make our React support even deeper. This release features a few nice ways to define custom templates, including bindings in markup to all controls that have Items.

We added MenuItem and MenuSeparator components

React Menu

We also added a new wjItemTemplate 'render prop' to these controls:

Up next is rich cell template support in our React FlexGrid interop.

Vue Improvements

Similar to React, we made some nice improvements in our Vue interop. We added wj-menu-item and wj-menu-separator components to our Vue menu component.

More Gauge Customization

A few customers have asked for more details to be added to our gauges, so we added a couple new properties to help.

We added a Gauge.showTickText property to show text labels next to each tickmark

We also added support for needle-based pointers with the new RadialGauge properties and methods:

  • needleShape
  • needleLength
  • needleElement
  • createNeedleElement

Template Literal Function

We added a new i18n template literal function to Wijmo. It allows you to build multiline strings with interpolated values, and makes it easy to handle single and double quotes embedded in your strings.

Undo Redo in Applications

Almost every application can benefit from being able to undo and redo recent actions. We often have customers that want this built into FlexGrid. We did even better and made a nice Undo/Redo class for managing history of actions at the application level. Of course, you can use it just with FlexGrid if you prefer. But we recommend trying it out for your entire app!

Paging for Data

We added a New CollectionViewNavigator control for navigating through CollectionView items or pages. This is a really common UI. It can easily be used with any of our controls like FlexGrid to offer simple paging through data.

FlexGrid MultiRange Selection

A few customers have asked for Excel-like multirange selection for FlexGrid. We added a new SelectionMode called MultiRange to support this behavior. This allows users to hold down ctrl (or command) + select multiple ranges of cells in FlexGrid. You can use the new we added a new selectedRanges property, which gets an array containing CellRange objects that contain the currently selected ranges.

FlexGrid Performance Tuning APIs

We added some new APIs for when you want to tune performance for more rare scenarios. Most people will not need to use them, but we exposed them for the few who do. Make sure to read the documentation carefully for each when using them.

  • new FlexGrid.refreshRange method
  • FlexGrid.lazyRender property
