What's New in WPF and Silverlight 2013 v3

Studio Enterprise 2013 v3 is now available just one day after the release of Visual Studio 2013. Normally each release I post about what's new in all of the ComponentOne XAML studios in one post but this time i'm splitting out WinRT XAML from Silverlight and WPF because there's too much to mention for each studio. Studio for WinRT XAML continues to expand greatly (see my next post about that), while WPF and Silverlight have some exciting new stuff that's exclusive to these platforms such as themes and 3D charts. Let's run through what you'll find new inside Studio for WPF and Silverlight this release.

Using Bootstrap with Studio for ASP.NET Wijmo

Microsoft has shipped some nice to Project Templates in Visual Studio 2013. The new templates use a theming framework called Bootstrap. We are always looking to make life easier for our customers, so we decided to provide official support for Bootstrap in Studio for ASP.NET Wijmo. Take a look at how easy it is to integrate Bootstrap with our Controls.

Getting Started with ThemeRoller for Visual Studio

ThemeRoller for Visual Studio makes designing beautiful themes for ComponentOne ASP.NET Controls easy. Simply open a SmartTag on any C1 Control and click "Create Theme". ThemeRoller open up inside Visual Studio and allows you to customize a theme without any knowledge of CSS or the Controls. ThemeRoller for Visual Studio can be used to apply application-wide themes to Studio for ASP.NET Wijmo.

Wijmo 2013v3 has Landed

I am happy to announce that Wijmo 2013v3 has landed! This is another monumental release for us. This release includes some major new features like Bootstrap support, AMD support, Grid row editing and Grid Command Columns as well as major performance enhancements and a long list of bug fixes.

Using Wijmo with RequireJS

Wijmo has over 40 widgets included and you are probably only using a few of them in your applications. Make your Wijmo applications faster by using our new AMD support. We provide all of our widgets and their dependencies as Modules. We also provide samples and an AMD loader using RequireJS to make getting started easier. If you want to use the Wijmo Grid, you simply need one small JavaScript reference and can then call require([“wijmo.wijgrid”]). The AMD loader will then download the grid file and files of any dependencies it has. AMD makes it easy to use individual widgets without needing to manage dependencies yourself. Using AMD will also ensure that you are minimizing the file size being downloaded to your clients.

How To: Sort C1FlexGrid With Auto Execute Query Off

While working in a LightSwitch application, you would often need to load Query result on a conditional basis. For instance, if you are creating a custom search screen with many optional parameters you may want to first specify search criteria and then issue the search at once.

How To License Legacy ActiveReports Versions

ActiveReports has been one of the most popular reporting tools right from its initial VB6 days.With each new release it has evolved and therefore it is so popular among report designers. If we talk about the licensing process for the .NET versions for ActiveReports, then the first three versions viz ActiveReports for .NET 1.0, ActiveReports for .NET 2.0, and ActiveReports for .NET 3.0 had the same licensing model. With ActiveReports 6 it was changed and finally further modified with the release of ActiveReports 7. This blog article is dedicated to the first three versions of ActiveReports for .NET. The reason to publish this blog is simple. To provide developers who are still working with legacy ActiveReports for .NET versions, a place to get all the information they require to successfully license their machines. So let start:

Local Properties in Wijmo Grid for LightSwitch HTML

Wijmo Grid for LightSwitch HTML is mainly used with database i.e. in bound mode but many developers have requirement of adding some unbound columns. In Wijmo Grid, every operation say filtering, sorting, paging, scrolling etc. is designed to be a server-side operation. So, for adding unbound columns, we need to make everything work at client side

CRUD operations in Wijmo Grid

Wijmo Grid is the most extensively used widget among all other Wijmo widgets. In most of the cases, it is bound to the database and end users are allowed to perform the basic CRUD i.e. Create Read Update Delete operations. This is the most common requirement for all the developers while creating any application.

WijGrid is undoubtedly, the most commonly used and popular widget offered by Wijmo. With its flexible structure and ability to support different customizations, it is a great tool to present data in a tabular form to the end users over the web. If we talk about its common features like filtering, sorting, paging etc then we already have nice online samples available which showcase these features. However the motive of this blog article is to present a customization which offers an out of the box solution.
