Throughout 2012 Microsoft will be making stepwise releases of Windows 8 and Visual Studio 11 starting with a public Consumer Preview released on February 29th. With Microsoft’s new platform, application developers will have more options and more capabilities than ever before. But professional developers won’t be the only ones to benefit from these new tools. Microsoft has really extended its reach to include non-professional application developers with Visual Studio LightSwitch, to commercial App developers with a new Metro UI Shell and App Marketplace - and to non-traditional “Microsoft” developers with first-class citizen-support for jQuery, CSS, and HTML.
I am pleased to announce the ComponentOne 2012 v1 release is here. XAML is a large focus this release from new controls and themes to our partnership with Esri bringing you world class mapping tools. Let me run-down many of the key new features in Studio for WPF, Silverlight and Windows Phone.
The ability to show connecting lines between parent-child node is pretty useful and definitely gives a better representation in case of large data. TreeView controls over some platforms have ShowLines property which user can set to see the connecting lines automatically.
Like any WinForms control, C1Barcode for WinForms can be used within a WPF project. C1Barcode supports over 10 linear and 2D encoding types (QRCode) and can add barcode displays to any of your WinForms or WPF applications. For using the control in WPF you have a couple different options available to you.
Usage of a TextBlock is quite common in CellTemplates of Columns in a C1Flexgrid for WPF. There might a requirement of changing BackGround/ForeGround of C1FlexGrid rows on some event, say MouseHover.
C1Gauge (SL and WPF) provides pointers to display values in a range. You may want to change the value by dragging the pointer to a specified value, just like a simple slider control behaves.
Stacking plot areas within a chart can be a useful way to better analyze the data points. Rather than having many data series overlapped you can increase readability by moving some series to an adjacent plot area. This can all be achieved using the advanced capabilities of the ComponentOne Chart for XAML.
The scenario is simple: a user wants to customize the way the FlexGrid displays information based on its state. For instance, when a row is collapsed it should display as one style, and when it’s expanded it should display as another style. How can you achieve this type of logic in the XAML world while still obeying the laws of MVVM? The answer is very simple: use a Cell Factory.
VbScript does not support native arithmetic operations like Sum/Difference on Time /DateTime objects. This makes a situation a bit complex when applying direct VbScript functions (SUM/DIFF) on fields of type Time/DateTime in C1Report.
There are situations when we need the chart to act as a drilldown data chart. For example, when we click on a data-point we need to show some more underlying data, associated with that point.
The Licensing process of our ComponentOne controls is fairly simple. The application should have a licenses.licx file containing the licensing information and the license key should be activated on the machine.
When document with landscape layout is printed on a physical printer using the C1DocumentViewer, it is always printed as portrait. The orientation can only be changed manually when user selects the print orientation as Landscape in the printdialog. The issue is mainly because of the inherent MS DocumentViewer and there aren't a lot of options to customize the default printdialog that pops up when print button is clicked. However, no issue is observed while printing on XPS printer.
There are times when user wants to see data as transposed i.e vertical rows and horizontal columns in grid. The simplest way to do this is use the DataTable object as the ItemsSource and transpose the data itself there.
