Pittsburgh, PA – April 14th, 2021 GrapeCity, a global provider of award-winning enterprise software development tools, is pleased to announce ComponentOne 2021 v1, the first major software release of the year. The highlights of this release include new and exciting controls for Blazor and .NET 5 (WinForms and WPF), along with feature enhancements for FlexGrid across numerous platforms, support for Xamarin.Forms 5, and more.

ComponentOne’s newest Blazor Edition continues to expand with new input and layout controls built natively in Blazor for Server and WebAssembly applications. With the Blazor Window component, .NET developers can create modal and modeless prompts and dialogs in Blazor applications using the new C1Window component. With the C1Window component, users can provide pop-up editing for FlexGrid and display additional information for any owner element. The new Blazor DateRangePicker component makes it easy to select a date range in .NET applications. It’s helpful to use a Blazor DateRangePicker when booking a service for a range of times or to analyze data for a specific date window.

The 2021 v1 release adds several new controls for .NET 5 to WinForms and WPF. The calendar component has a new look in WPF designed for desktop and improved for touch; this calendar component supports custom UI templates and smooth animation. The WPF accordion control also has a new fluent style for .NET 5. This control goes beyond the traditional accordion by allowing developers to configure all panels to be expanded at one time. The following controls are now available for .NET 5 apps in WinForms: C1FlexPivot, C1Maps, C1TreeView, several themes, and much more. These controls can also be used in the latest .NET 6 preview, as Microsoft has created a seamless transition from .NET 5 to future versions.

“Our newest Blazor Edition continues to expand with essential new input and layout controls that can be used for server or client-side Blazor C# web apps,” said Greg Lutz, ComponentOne Product Manager. “The new pop-up and input controls not only add extra functionality to our fast datagrid, FlexGrid but also can be used to fill in the gaps in your apps.”
