Essential Studio for Windows Phone incudes updates to many major controls, including the Chart, DataGrid, RichTextBox, Diagram, Maps, and Schedule controls.
A toolbar has been added for interactive zooming and panning. Events for the zooming behavior in the chart are also supported.
Editing text in annotations is supported.
Event notification in annotations during dynamic interactions is supported.
Row height size can be based on cell content for specific columns or all columns. This improves the readability of the content. This operation will occur in an on-demand basis, which will not affect the loading performance of the Grid.
The DataGrid control supports freezing rows and columns at the top and bottom of the grid, similar to Excel freeze rows.
The RichTextBoxAdv control provides support to find text in the document and replace one or all occurrences of that text with a new word or phrase. Regular expressions can also be used to find a particular pattern of text in the document. This helps users to modify the contents easily.
The RichTextBoxAdv control provides text prediction support, which shows predictive text on the virtual keyboard while typing. This helps users type quickly and easily.
Directional preference for line bridging can be set as Top, Bottom, Left, or Right.
Polyline support has been provided.
Tab-like navigation enables users to easily navigate between views. Tapping the header or flipping the view will navigate to the next or previous screen.
Essential DocIO supports nested mail merging with implicit relational data objects without any explicit relational commands. This helps users mail-merge directly with relational data objects like Entity Framework objects, LINQ data objects, and other business objects.
