Spreadsheet Control

Support for Workbook and Worksheet Element Protection

With this update, the DevExpress ASP.NET Spreadsheet Control provides support for worksheet and workbook element protection defined within documents. When the Spreadsheet opens a document that contains protected elements, the control prevents them from being modified by end-users. For instance, the Spreadsheet can lock the workbook's structure preventing users from adding, deleting, hiding or displaying worksheets. Or, the Spreadsheet can prevent end-users from editing the contents of locked cells within a protected worksheet. This helps obscure data or formulas that might confuse users and prevents them from viewing or making changes to that data.

The packaging and deployment processes of apps built using the DevExtreme SPA Framework have been reworked to support both the iOS 8 and Android 5 platforms and their App Stores.

Validation

With this release, DevExtreme ships with a built-in input validation engine with a powerful and straightforward API - one that has been tuned to deliver the best possible UX and one that is consistent across all of our shipping themes.

DevExtreme Validation

The DevExtreme Validation engine is designed to be fully customizable. You can apply it to any third-party widgets or use its UI elements in conjunction with any custom validation engine.

Polar Charts are a great way to display data whose values span cyclically repeating arguments. By using polar coordinates, you can display values related to each argument cycle as points - each displayed in a corresponding sector and having a radius proportional to the value itself. If you have multiple series, this widget allows end-users to compare values by viewing the resulting polygons.

Grid Designer for List Views

We introduce a new easy-to-use way to configure List View columns at design time. Model Editor includes a designer that replicates a grid populated with sample data.

New Image Property Editor

The performance of ASP.NET-based XAF applications has been improved. We've introduced support of byte array image storage for Image Property Editors (in both WinForms and ASP.NET). This decreases web server memory consumption, since the byte array can contain compressed images and the server does not have to unpack it. Additionally, you can enable delayed image loading to further decrease memory usage. In real terms, this means that you can display large list views with numerous images and experience no performance issues.

Data View Mode for List Views

The Data View mode released as a beta in v14.1 is now shipping.

This list can be queried much more quickly than a real objects collection. You can now use this feature in your production environment to improve performance for use-case scenarios involving large volumes of data.

Data-Specific Column Types for ASPxGridView

Performance as it relates to the opening, paging, grouping, sorting and filtering of lists displayed using the ASPxGridView has been improved. We extended our code to use data-specific column types whenever possible. The use of data-specific column types (for simple types such as String, DateTime, Bool, etc.) allows us to reduce processing time on the server, improving rendering time within the browser and reducing traffic (due to a simplified page structure).

Persisting UI Settings in the Database

End-user UI settings (model differences) can now be stored in the application's database (both WinForms and ASP.NET). This allows you to synch settings for users across multiple devices, share settings modified by administrators and prohibit unauthorized changes.
