v16.2 introduces new MS Excel-inspired column filter popups which make creating filter criteria easier.
New filter popups consist of two tabs:
The DevExpress WinForms Chart Control v16.2 ships with the following enhancements:
Our new Template Designer for Visual Studio allows you to create templates for diagram items bound to data (including OrgChart elements).
New layouts include:
We've also introduced new settings allowing you to configure item spacing, alignment, direction, etc.
With this release, our WinForms Diagram Control can generate items based on a collection of data objects.
Both data controllers ship with the following features:
DevExpress Diagram ships with data bindings that can be specified at the diagram item level. Data bindings support Criteria Operator expressions, serialization and deserialization.
With this release, our WinForms Diagram control introduces Microsoft Visual Studio-inspired dock-based UX. This includes built-in support for auto-hide windows, splitters and dock hints.
With this release, you can specify allowed actions for diagram shapes, connectors, containers and other diagram items.
DevExpress Diagram now offers Print Preview support.
With this release, you can display bitmap images on the Diagram's surface. Capabilities include:
DevExpress Diagram now supports use of item containers to help you keep information organized and easier to understand. This includes:
With this release, you can paint items manually by handling the CustomDrawItem event.
End-users can now customize Right-Angle connector routes by dragging individual line segments.
A new PageNumberEdit control emulates the page selectors in popular PDF Viewer applications. It allows you to select a page number while displaying the total number of pages. The control is adapted to be used in-place within DevExpress Bars and Ribbon controls.
This release introduces custom Behaviors for WinForms editors and controls. A Behavior is an external class that implements a certain functionality for a control using its public API. These include:
Displays the current date and/or time. This Behavior can be attached to LabelControl, BarStaticItem and DigitalGauge.
Transforms a PictureEdit control into an image slider.
Turns standard and DevExpress forms into sticky windows that can snap to other windows and screen edges.
This behavior can be attached to a form to restore its previous position and size at runtime.
With this release, we've introduced a new wait indicator (Line) for the Progress Panel and Transition Manager.
Items can now be aligned to the top and left edges.
We've implemented the DrawItem event allowing you to paint items manually.
New API includes properties allowing you to hide OK and Cancel buttons in the popup window.
v16.2 introduces the auto-play feature.
The Splitter item, which is used to resize layout elements on-the-form, supports the expand/collapse functionality. This allows end-users to temporarily hide a part of a layout with a single mouse click.
Animation effects are now used when expanding/collapsing layout groups and when switching between tabs.
You can add custom buttons in the group's header region to implement various context specific tasks.
New custom draw events allow you to paint or highlight individual layout items.
The Customization Form features the new, more compact layout of controls, still providing easy access to layout items, tree structure and templates. The Context Menu has been revamped by rearranging commands in a more consistent way, and by adding new actions. The Add Control action helps you add common DevExpress controls to the form with a single click. Elements of the Customization Form and Context Menu now use new SVG images, which automatically adjust their colors according to the current skin.
The Data Binding Wizard now features a new modern looking UI, helping you easily specify data binding options and select fields to be retrieved from the bound data source.
To display and edit collection properties, the DataLayoutControl can now automatically generate a grid control. This feature can be enabled with the AllowGeneratingCollectionProperties option, and in the control's Data Binding Wizard.
With the new FlowDirection property, you can choose the item arrangement direction - top-to-bottom, bottom-to-top, right-to-left, and the default left-to-right.
Item resizing has been improved to provide smooth user experience.
Shapefiles are now loaded faster. It will also take less time to render vector items (except bubbles and pies) in the following cases:
With the v16.2 release, we’ve added a pager to the ribbon and bar toolbars. The pager indicates the current page number and the total number of pages.
With the v16.2 release, we've introduced navigation by page thumbnails. Page thumbnails represent document page previews. The Page Thumbnails panel allows you to do the following:
The DevExpress PDF Viewer introduces the Marquee Zoom tool allowing you to zoom either entire PDF document or a selected page area.
Text documents are now rendered up to 30% faster. We have also optimized document printing. For instance, text documents can be printed to the XPS writer up to four times faster. In addition, the resulting XPS file is approximately 20 times smaller.
Our WinForms Pivot Grid Control now supports OLAP ragged hierarchies.
Our WinForms Vertical Grid now offers Data Annotation Attributes Support. You can customize row, data and validation settings at the data source level.
We've also improved scrolling behavior and control resizing.
Collections are now edited using our new DX Collection Editor. The new Collection Editor supports DevExpress skins, search, multi-select and assembly version display.
v16.2 ships with the following Ribbon and Toolbar enhancements:
The Ribbon control's ColorScheme property has been extended to support new color variations in Office 2016 and Office 2013 themes. This allows you to colorize the Ribbon UI (title bar, main menu and main application button) with distinct colors (even when using the same skin across apps).
Bar items without images assigned can now display a 'stub' caption-based glyph. The first or second initials are displayed with a colored background. You can customize color options, font attributes, text alignment, text case mode and background shape.
Embedded editors (BarEditItems) can now be grouped into non-breaking containers (BarButtonGroups) in the Ribbon Control.
Via our new on-the-form commands, it's never been easier to add Ribbon Pages, Page Groups and Page Categories at design-time.
This release adds support for vector images.
This release includes performance enhancements aimed at improving scrolling speed and rendering when changing from one Scheduler View to another (Month, Timeline and Gantt Views).
With this release, we've introduced improved screen reader support. MS Narrator and third-party screen reader applications can now read and spell all significant visual elements. The accessibility level of all Scheduler Views is now comparable to that of Microsoft Outlook.
With this release, our Spreadsheet Control provides a simple and consistent way to manipulate data. You can now bind a worksheet or specific cell range to a data source.
A cell range can also be used as a data source for any DevExpress or third-party data-aware control (Data Grid, Chart, etc.). All data-related modifications affecting the worksheet are immediately propagated to bound controls and changes made within external controls are immediately reflected in the worksheet.
DevExpress Spreadsheet allows you to print titles for individual documents. If a worksheet occupies more than one page, you can repeat row or column headings on each printed page in order to help improve readability.
v16.2 ships with a new Formatting Rule dialog. It allows end-users to create format conditions and customize the appearance of cells as needs dictate.
With this release, the Spreadsheet Control supports XLSX/XLSM file encryption. You can encrypt documents using standard or agile encryption.
DevExpress designers have been adapted to support hi-resolutions display devices.
Additionally, pressing F1 in a Designer's Properties window will now display the corresponding help topic. And, the 'Learn more online' action will now navigate to a help topic that describes the selected control/component.
If a Data Grid (WinForms, ASP.NET or WPF) contains an unbound column whose values are calculated based on an expression, you can choose to export the column's calculated values or the column's expression. If a column's expression is exported, column values will be calculated by the worksheet.
With this release, you can also export data from Data Grids into native Excel tables. This option offers numerous formatting options and makes data analysis and management much easier. A new BeforeExportTable event allows you to customize a table prior to its export to Excel.
With the v16.2 release, the DevExpress Text Editor and its descendants can display animated GIF files.
The following controls support animated transitions when their states are changed:
All these controls provide their own properties to enable and customize these animation effects. We've also added a new WindowsFormsSettings.AnimationMode global setting that allows you to:
This release adds support for the 'snapping' feature in Windows and DevExpress forms, which helps you stick the form to the screen edges, a grid or other sticky forms.
The 'snapping' feature can be enabled for built-in Customization Forms (Column Choosers) in the Data Grid, Tree List, Pivot Grid and Layout Manager. You can specify whether Customization Forms are allowed to stick to the screen edges, owner control, owner form and/or other sticky forms.
The snapping feature is also provided for floating Dock Panels and floating documents implemented with the App UI Manager (DocumentManager component). The same snap modes are available as for Customization Forms.
In this release we expanded our template gallery with new project and project item templates. Among them are:
MVVM Support - For certain project templates, you can now choose between traditional and MVVM-aware modes. These project templates provide the 'MVVM Ready' option, which enables the generation of the View and ViewModel layers.
This release incorporates a number of accessibility specific enhancements so you can deliver accessible web applications for people with disabilities - including those who use assistive technologies such as screen readers.
The rendering of our ASP.NET Grid Controls has been improved by adding WAI-ARIA attributes to identify features and elements for user interaction. The following grid features and UI elements support assistive technologies and can be identified and read by screen readers:
Our new client-side API allows you to send custom messages that can then be read by screen readers.
With this release, we've improved the functionality of fixed columns within our ASP.NET Grid Control so it is able to support complex layouts. The following layout features are now fully compatible with fixed columns:
Our ASP.NET Grid Control now offers a client-side "column reordering" mode. In this mode, when an end-user moves a grid column using drag-and-drop, the GridView re-renders itself to reflect new layout changes without initiating a round trip to the server.
With our v16.2 release, your web app can now postpone column resizing. By default (Live resizing), the DevExpress ASP.NET Grid is redrawn continuously as an end-user drags a column. When using our new Postponed mode, column resizing is visually indicated by a resizable frame, while the grid itself is redrawn only after resize operations have been completed. This new mode is also available in our ASP.NET TreeList Control.
In previous versions, when an end-user deleted a data row with batch edit mode enabled, the deleted row was hidden from view. With this release, deleted rows are not hidden and instead marked with the specified color. We've also added a Recover command that cancels the delete operation.
This new feature is also available in our Vertical Grid and Card View Controls.
End-users can now create multi-line column layouts via drag and drop operations.
v16.2 introduces the following Crosshair features (WebForms and MVC):
New action methods simplify chart initialization and make code more readable:
With this release, you can now customize the appearance and content displayed within our ASP.NET List-based Editors (ComboBox, ListBox, TokenBox). The following customization options are available:
In this release, our ASP.NET HTML Editor introduces built-in Insert Media Dialogs allowing end-users to upload files to cloud services (Azure, Amazon, Dropbox).
With this new API, you no longer need to implement custom file saving logic. You are allowed to programmatically modify a file's name and content before the file is saved to storage.
Binary images that are added via drag and drop operations or pasted from the clipboard can now be auto-saved to the server. This makes the output HTML document smaller in size since images don't contain base64 data.
Our ASP.NET Pivot Grid Control now supports OLAP ragged hierarchies.
With this release, our ASP.NET Scheduler Control can now highlight coordinates of the currently selected time interval within its time ruler and day headers.
v16.2 ships with the following client-side rendering improvements:
This release ships with the following visual enhancements:
The new 'Format Cells' dialog allows you to format worksheet data. You can specify a cell's background, font color and style, change content alignment, apply cell borders, etc.
Our ASP.NET Spreadsheet continues to extend its worksheet protection support. In this release, we've supported end-user restrictions (e.g. inserting or deleting columns/rows, editing objects, sorting, auto-filtering, etc.) that are already defined in a document.
With with release, you can create your own functions. Custom functions are available for spreadsheet calculations and can be used in formulas. Custom functions are not saved in a workbook file. You must add them in code.
Our ASP.NET Upload Control supports IIS clustering technologies (Web Farms or Web Gardens). You can now upload files to Web Farms or Web Gardens from all DevExpress ASP.NET Controls that rely upon our Upload Control (File Manager, Html Editor, Spreadsheet, Rich Text Editor, etc).
You can now modify base color and font settings for prebuilt DevExpress Themes. Theme settings can be specified declaratively in web.config or dynamically in code.
The DevExpress WPF Grid Control allows end-users to pin required data rows to top and bottom.
With this release, design-time experience becomes easier and intuitive. Our new Feature Browser allows you to quickly locate and specify the grid's feature-specific settings.
With this release, our WPF Grid Control can populate its bands from a ViewModel.
This release includes our new Chart 3D Control for WPF. This control allows you to visualize 3D data sets as Surface, 3D Bars, 3D Scatter Points or Bubbles.
With this release, we've implemented data binding. Our WPF Diagram control can now automatically generate graphs of any kind and complexity based on a collection of data objects.
The new DataBindingBehavior object accepts two collections and creates diagram items with required connections. The new binding behavior supports templates (created in XAML or using the DevExpress Template Designer for Visual Studio), implements customization events, supports our built-in layout algorithms, etc.
The new Hyperlink editor displays its content as a hyperlink. The editor can function in both standalone and cell-based mode.
Our new Module Injection Framework (MIF) makes it easier to develop, test, maintain, and deploy modular applications built with loosely coupled modules.
The frameworks's key features include:
Scaffolding can now generate localization resources for multiple languages.
All generated views will use localization strings stored in common resources.
We now offer Entity Framework Core Data Layer support.
Now a single UnitOfWork can be shared across multiple ViewModels. This makes it possible to change multiple entities in a single transaction.
With this release, all common view styles are stored in the Resources folder. This allows you to customize view settings in a single location and avoid code duplication.
With the v.16.2 release, we’ve added a pager to the ribbon and toolbars. The pager displays the current page number and the total number of pages and allows your end-users to quickly navigate pages.
This release introduces the Page Thumbnails panel that shows page thumbnails of an active PDF document. The panel is located in the Navigation pane.
Page thumbnails provide miniature previews of document pages. You can perform the following actions in the Page Thumbnails panel:
Our WPF Pivot Grid Control now supports OLAP ragged hierarchies.
Our new Insert Function and Function Arguments dialogs allow end-users to select the desired function from a list, insert it into a cell formula and specify function arguments.
Our New Formatting Rule dialog allows end-users to create a new conditional formatting rule and customize the appearance of cells that meet specific conditions.
In this release, we've simplified the use of bar item images. You can now add images of any size and optionally specify their proportions using the CustomGlyphSize property. If this property isn't specified, the glyph will be scaled automatically based on item content.
You can now hide bar item glyphs displayed in popup menus by disabling the bar manager's ShowGlyphsInPopupMenus option.
This release includes a new Rating Editor. Its features include:
With this release, you can limit the maximum number of characters an end-user can enter.
End-users can now resize grid columns by dragging a column header's left or right edge.
With this release, we've supported ISupportIncrementalLoading collections (incremental data loading).
New column options allow you to specify a cells's content alignment (vertical and horizontal).
The DevExpress Windows 10 Controls now include a new TileBarFrame component - a special container for the TileBar control and navigation pages. With a single option, the TileBar can now be placed along any of the four edges of the TileBarFrame, with the active page displayed in the center.
New properties in the TileBarItem class (NavigationTarget, NavigationParameter, NavigationTargetName) simplify the creation and handling of the Tile UI. Automatic synchronization of the currently selected TileBarItem with the active page in the TileBarFrame is supported out-of-the-box.
The Back button can now be hidden from the window's title using the HideBackButton property.
With this release, our default Splash Screen view can display the custom text indicating the current state of the operation.
Color schemes first introduced in v16.1 are now fully supported by all Range Control clients.
With the v16.2 release, we've extended our ISupportNavigationEvents interface to make the process of saving and loading a view state easier. You don't need to implement both ISupportNavigation and ISupportSaveLoadState interfaces because ISupportNavigationEvents provides all required functionality.
With the v16.2 release, DevExtreme Angular 2 components can be seamlessly used with Webpack and installed into an application created with Angular CLI.
All built-in DevExtreme validation features are now available inside the DevExtreme Angular 2 components. You can use dx-validator, dx-validation-group, dx-validation-summary components and all available validation rules in your Angular 2 application.
With the v16.2 release, we've introduced two types of configuration components. The first type provides a convenient and efficient way for binding ‘deep’ properties. The second type allows you to declare collection property items (e.g. DataGrid columns, TabPanel tabs, etc.) via markup.
This release introduces integrated client-side data validation and error indication. Validation rules can be defined in a model by attaching Data Annotation attributes (e.g. Required, StringLength, etc.) to corresponding properties.
With this release, you can submit HTML forms (e.g. @Html.BeginForm, @Ajax.BeginForm) with nested DevExtreme editors out of the box.
Visual Studio developers can now add resources required by ASP.NET MVC Wrappers to an existing MVC project.
DevExtreme is ready to use with jQuery version 3.x.
v16.2 introduces ECMAScript Internationalization API support. You can now localize your DevExtreme applications using the Intl global object.
The grouped DataGrid can request data only for visible groups instead of loading complete data for all groups. This significantly improves the performance of the DataGrid in scenarios involving large amounts of data.
The new onToolbarPreparing event allows you to customize toolbar items (add/delete items, customize item settings).
We have made the following improvements in the row selection feature.
Previously, an end user could select all rows on all pages. In this release, we have added a new mode that allows an end user to select all rows within a single page.
In deferred mode, the Data Grid does not make requests for data until you demand this in code. This feature is especially useful in scenarios with large amounts of data.
With this release, we've made our Pivot Grid work faster by delegating all data intensive operations (filtering, grouping, summary calculation) to the server.
New templates allow you to customize scheduler cells (resource cells, cells within a table, date and time cells).
New options allow you to customize scheduler views individually.
With this release, end-users can select all list items across all pages while previously this could be done for loaded pages only.
List, Tabs, Accordion and NavBar widgets allow you to select items in code by item keys.
We have improved the performance of all our widgets with non-native scrolling.
With this release, DevExpress HTML5 Tree View introduces dynamic data loading mode. In this mode, only root-level nodes are created when the application starts. Child nodes are loaded when their parent nodes are being expanded.
The XRCharacterComb control allows you to display text so that each character is printed inside an individual cell (e-forms).
With this release, you can edit a previewed document prior to printing or export.
We now support PDF/A - an ISO-standardized version of the Portable Document Format. Documents can now be exported to one of the following conformance levels:
With v16.2, users can schedule and deliver reports (invoices) tailored and addressed to specific recipients. Each task can now generate multiple reports at once based on a single template.
With this release, configuration of database connections has been simplified and made more intuitive.
v16.2 ships with a Document Viewer for mobile devices.
Our new Data Source wizard allows you to create multiple queries and master-detail relationships.
The new Data Source Wizard allows you and your end-users to create multiple queries and master-detail relationships.
To improve the look and feel of apps powered by DevExpress Reports across high resolution monitors, all bitmap icons have been replaced with SVG images (both in the End-User Report Designer and in the Document Viewer control).
With this release, the DevExpress WPF Report Designer ships with an integrated Chart Designer.
With this release, we've implemented a new API that allows you to customize our wizards (Data Source Wizard and Report Wizard) as your application requirements dictate (modify page UI, customize appearance, implement custom logic, etc.).
You can now insert a table of contents into a document.
v16.2 includes support for SubBands.
With this release, our PDF Document Processor can flatten interactive forms. This replaces the interactive fields with content such as text, images or shapes. You can flatten the entire form or a specific field on the form.
v16.2 marks the official release of new Web Dashboard Control. As you would expect, the DevExpress Web Dashboard Control ships with a comprehensive feature set designed to elevate its design capabilities and bring it in line with its Windows counterpart. These include:
The DevExpress Dashboard ships with a new Expression Editor for its WinForms Dashboard Designer. The new Expression Editor supports code auto-completion, syntax highlighting, error handling and much more.
With this release, DevExpress Dashboard supports OLAP ragged hierarchies.
Use our new Treemap dashboard item to display hierarchical data as a set of nested rectangles that are sized and ordered by a quantitative variable. The new dashboard item supports the following features:
This release introduces the following UI enhancements:
XAF continues to evolve and in this release, gives you the ability to create interactive dashboards for Windows and Web apps by leveraging the flexibility of DevExpress Dashboard. DevExpress Dashboard integration has become much easier.
XAF's ASP.NET Criteria Property Editor now supports many of the features available in its WinForms counterpart, including:
XAF now supports multiple independent XAF views within different browser tabs. To enable this new feature, simply activate the WebApplication.EnableMultipleBrowserTabsSupport option. Use-cases include the ability to include hyperlinks to different XAF views inside a customer email. Once clicked, these links will open separate browser tabs so that an end-user can work with them independently.
With this release, you can grant or deny access for specific navigation items and groups.
The customization of UI controls used to visualize XAF Actions has been simplified. With v16.2, each Action exposes the CustomizeControl event that provides access to the underlying control including its context information.
With this release, the display of Dialog Views (configurable confirmation messages, reminders, etc.) has been simplified for both Windows and Web based XAF applications. We've implelemented a new platform-independent Application.ShowViewStrategy.ShowViewInPopupWindow method.
With this release, XAF List Views support our server-side data processing engine - Instant Feedback UI Mode. When used, your apps will remain responsive regardless of dataset size. To enable this feature, set the ListView's DataAccesMode property to InstantFeedback.
With this release, you can load an Application Model's cache in multiple threads and disable caching of empty nodes.
You can now run Code Analysis on the active project or active file.
Code Analysis reports now include information for source files.
We have added the ability to check naming conventions continuously in background.
Code Analysis performance has been improved.
We have added the new Jump to Everything navigation provider, which allows you to jump to any file and symbol in the solution.
Now you can run and debug .NET Core tests, created with NUnit, xUnit or MSTest frameworks. CodeRush's Code Coverage calculation is also supported for .NET Core tests.
We have added the ability to format XAML documents. This feature adds and removes the line breaks and indentations at the required places, so that the tag indentation matches its nesting level.
Additionally, you can reorder elements and attributes according to rules you specify.
This code provider declares all namespace references appearing in the XAML file.
Change method parameter order, without any dialogs to slow you down. The method signature and all references are updated. This is the fastest, most effortless way to reorder parameters.
Easily switch between CLR types and their keyword aliases, for instance between int and System.Int32.
Divide a string into two at the caret position. You can also divide one string into three concatenated strings – just select the portion you want to break out and apply this refactoring.
Either collapse a list of method parameters or passed-in arguments into a single line, or break them apart into separate lines (one for each parameter or argument).
Remove explicit namespace references from your code, automatically adding that namespace to the using/imports list if needed. You can use this refactoring on a single identifier, on all identifiers in the current file, or as a code cleanup rule.
Change the method signature, passing in only the part or parts of the parameter that are actually used in the method, instead of the parameter itself. This refactoring often promotes reuse by reducing the sophistication of the arguments needed to call a method.
For example, if a method accepts a Person instance but only references that Person's Age property, Decompose Parameter will change that method signature and update all calling sites, so only the Age is passed in.
Move string literals to a *.resx file (creating a new *.resx file if necessary), replacing that string with a link to the resource. You can also optionally extract all string literals within a method or property accessor.
Add the active identifier to the method signature, updating all usages inside the method and all calls to the method.
Visual Studio's Rename refactoring is now accessible from the refactoring menu.
Light-bulb menu items can now be sorted based on their most recent usage in a given context.
You can now optionally hide redundant light-bulb menu items that ship with Visual Studio if these features overlap with more efficient CodeRush for Roslyn functionality. For example, if this option is selected, when CodeRush's Declare Method is available, Visual Studio's Generate method stub menu item will be hidden.
The Duplicate Line feature is now called Smart Duplicate Line. Now it watches and learns from your changes to improve the duplicate line experience. Currently, Smart Duplicate Line creates text fields for the segments of the line that are likely to change. The feature also automatically increments integer values if an incrementing or doubling pattern is detected in the code.
Press Shift+Enter to duplicate a line using the Smart Duplicate Line feature.
We have added a shortcut to collapse/expand code regions using keyboard. When the caret is located at the beginning of a string containing the #region directive, pressing the Space key will expand or collapse this region.
We extended the capabilities of our Query Builder with the following features:
This release ships with a new OData v4 data sources with support for our server-side data processing engine.
Both data sources use the OData Client for .NET and support filtering, sorting and composite keys.
This release introduces our new visual editor for WinForms that allows you to customize master-detail relations.
v16.2 introduces a new Barcode Control that allows you to generate barcode images within your VCL application. The initial version supports the following barcode symbologies:
Unbound, data-aware, standalone, and in-place versions of the Barcode Control are available.
This release ships with a new advanced text editor inspired by behaviors found in modern mail clients such as Microsoft Outlook and Google Gmail.
Unbound, data-aware, standalone, and in-place versions of the Token editor are available.
The Range Control is designed to help end-users select intervals and data ranges. When integrated with the DevExpress VCL Scheduler Control, it behaves like a timeline track bar, and allows quick timeline navigation and selection of date intervals.
The Range Control features:
Four built-in clients provide support for:
With this release, you can help end-users filter grid data faster, by selecting a required filter operator directly from Filter Row cells.
This release introduces a new data grouping mode that enables you and your end-users merge grouping columns, allowing for a more compact row list. Pressing and holding the Ctrl key while dropping a column header adjacent to another one located in the Group By box merges the two columns.
The new data-aware export is optimized for subsequent analysis of grid data within Microsoft Excel. The following data shaping options that are applied within the grid control are retained in the output XLS and XLSX documents.
With v16.2, you can limit the card size in Layout Views and enable card content scrolling using scrollbars. This functionality is useful in cards containing multiple elements.
The DevExpress VCL PDF Viewer was first released as a community technology preview in v16.1. This update marks its official release and includes the following new features:
The Print Preview window is now available as a component, so that you can add it from the Tool Palette into any container control.
Text that is rotated can now be printed or exported to PDF.
With v16.2, the DevExpress VCL Scheduler allows you to display a list of appointments grouped by day within its new Agenda View.
The DevExpress VCL Spreadsheet Report Designer now allows you to create master-detail relationships between bound datasets and enable end-users to generate multi-level reports. Output reports can be stored as one worksheet, multiple worksheets or workbooks.
In this version, you can group report data by values of one or more dataset fields and provide header and footer sections for each group.
In addition to grouping, you can now sort report data against one or more dataset fields.
You can now allow end-users to filter report data using our Filter Control component.
Parsing input to cells has been improved and now automatically creates format templates for date-time values in the short date format based on the regional settings.
SUMPRODUCT, SUMX2MY2, SUMX2PY2, and SUMXMY2 functions are now available (for summing products, squares, and their differences).
The ExpressRichEditControl Suite is now supported with RAD Studio XE8 or later in 64-bit apps created with C++Builder.
The data controller now allows users to build filter conditions with the Contains, NotContains, BeginsWith, and EndsWith comparison operators. This capability is available across all our controls that provide a data controller, including the Grid, Vertical Grid, Pivot Grid, and data-aware editors.
With v16.2, the Layout Control is integrated into majority of our dialogs to improve UI element alignment at any DPI setting and achieve better quality when rendering on transparent backgrounds.
