What’s New in 2023 Volume 4: WinUI and WPF

Syncfusion’s recent Essential Studio 2023 Volume 4 release was rolled out with many exciting new features and controls.

In this blog, we’ll look at the major updates in the WinUI and WPF platforms.

WinUI

WPF

Let’s see the new updates for the Syncfusion WPF platform in the 2023 Volume 4 release.

Diagram Library

Stencil improvement

You can showcase headers of symbol groups within a vertical tab layout using the WPF Diagram Library. Users can seamlessly explore different symbol categories by simply clicking on the tab headers.

Activity diagrams

Users can create activity diagrams programmatically or interactively using built-in activity diagram symbols. They can also add activity diagram symbols to stencils, which allows them to drag activity diagram shapes onto the canvas to construct activity diagrams.

An activity diagram is a type of UML (unified modeling language) diagram that visually represents the flow and sequence of activities within a system or business process.

UML uses case diagrams

Users can create UML (unified modeling language) use case diagrams programmatically or interactively using built-in UML use case diagram symbols. They can also add UML use case diagram symbols to stencils, allowing them to drag symbols easily onto the canvas to construct UML use case diagrams.

A use case diagram visually represents the interactions between different actors (users or external systems) and a system.

State diagrams

Users can create UML (unified modeling language) state diagrams programmatically or interactively using built-in UML state diagram symbols. They can also add UML state diagram symbols to stencils, allowing them to drag symbols onto the canvas to construct UML state diagrams.

A state diagram, also known as a state machine diagram, models the dynamic behavior of a system by illustrating the various states that an object can be in and the transitions between these states in response to events.

PDF VIEWER

The WPF PDF Viewer delivers the following new features.

Syncing from field-related changes

You can manipulate form fields and functions including addition, deletion, and modification in the loaded document, syncing it to the PDF Viewer.

Document-level security enhancement

This feature enhances document-level security by limiting the permissions set within the PDF document when it is opened in the PDF Viewer with the user password.

Note: With the upcoming 2024 Volume 1 release, we will discontinue support for .NET Framework 4.5, 4.5.1, and 4.6 in WinForms, WPF, and the file-format frameworks. Instead, we will provide support for .NET 4.6.2.
