Watermark is a popular feature for displaying customized strings when input values are missing in editable controls. If we start looking at the available properties for C1ComboBox we will find a 'Watermark' property is already available and functioning. Simply setting this property to a string will display the watermark when no value is selected in the ComboBox.
Many customers have asked us whether there is any way to silently install C1 installer on a computer. When we normally run C1 installer it requires local administrator rights and asks permission to make an entry to the registry.
This blog focuses on a small utility implementation where a drilled down C1Chart control is used to display detailed data for each row in C1FlexGrid. ComponentOne already provides a separate suite for Data Analysis in the form of OLAP for Silverlight. However, we may not need a full fledged control for small analytic display every time. In such a scenario, we can bind existing C1Chart control to the required data source to display the data.
Composite charts are used to display and analyze complex data in a single chart, so as the name suggests, its data binding is a little different from normal charts. In this blog, we will see how we can easily create a complex chart in code.
The C1Report provides support for displaying various images (jpeg, bmp, tiff, etc). However, it currently does not provide support for displaying Multi-Paged Tiff Images.
Recently we announced that appendTo released a Beta version of Juice UI. Juice UI brings the power of jQuery UI to ASP.NET as easy-to-use Controls. If you used the Ajax Control Toolkit then you are going to love Juice UI.
Many a times you wish to show data in a GridView and allow users to edit the data and save it. It used to be a cumbersome and time-consuming task where you had to define template columns and then manually get the updated values.
ComponentOne FlexGrid for LightSwitch is a LightSwitch control extension that uses the same command bar elements as the built-in Data Grid; however, it replaces the underlying Silverlight grid control with the popular ComponentOne FlexGrid control. As a drop-in replacement, the extension does everything that the built-in Data Grid does, plus conditional formatting, cell merging, tree views, export to Excel (even from the Web), filtering, printing, grouping and more.
The ComponentOne DataGrid for Silverlight and WPF has a rich collection of methods that allow you to easily track every movement the user makes. We can take advantage of this tracking to listen for layout changes made to the grid and then persist the layout between runs of the application.
The ComponentOne Chart for Silverlight and WPF comes with 12 unique themes out of the box. These themes can be applied by simply setting the Theme property. In addition to the 12 built-in themes, C1Chart is also supported in the several toolkit themes like Expression Dark, Shiny Blue, etc. But in many cases your requirements may dictate that you design a custom theme for the charts. In this blog post I will walk through creating a custom theme for C1Chart using Expression Blend 4.
Chart and Grid are commonly used controls. Grid control is used to display the factual data while Chart control is used to analyze that data.
