We at Syncfusion are excited to announce the release of Essential Studio 2016 Volume

developers working on all of our supported platforms.
Universal Windows Platform developers now have access to more
than 35 controls for the platform, broadening their options considerably. These
controls include the new Excel-like spreadsheet control that supports over 400 built-in
formulas, conditional formatting, PDF conversion, and much more. The new report
viewer features adaptive rendering to facilitate development across phones,
tablets, and desktops. Other features include major improvements to the chart,
data grid, diagram, pivot chart, pivot grid, pivot gauge, and more.
Xamarin developers also receive a number of exciting new
options. Our Xamarin suite now includes over 50 controls for Xamarin.iOS, Xamarin.Android,
and Xamarin.Forms. The new carousel control allows visuals to be displayed in
an interactive rotation that’s pleasing to use and view. The rotator control,
also new, offers flexible choices for navigating an interface, and the new
numeric up-down control allows numeric values to be increased or decreased at
the push of a button. This release is rounded out by significant updates to the
chart, grid, PDF library, and other controls.
Desktop developers aren’t forgotten. Our Windows Forms
controls have received a number of additions and updates, including a new
Excel-like spreadsheet control, new navigation drawer, and updates to
reporting, maps, PDF, and other controls. For WPF, we now include a new date
picker, accordion, and navigation drawer, and have improved our data grid,
chart, diagram, reporting, and heat map controls, among others.
improved controls as well. We now offer support for Angular 2 across our more

while the Excel-like spreadsheet control and Word-like rich text editor have
been updated and enhanced. Android M and Windows 10 mobile themes are now
available across all controls to provide a uniform appearance to web apps, and
major updates have been applied to our diagram, Gantt, grid, PDF viewer, and
pivot grid controls, among others.
