Sneak Peek at 2020 Volume 1 Beta: Essential JS 2

Syncfusion will deliver its first release of the year this month, and the beta version of the release is expected very soon. This article provides a preview of new controls and new features in exisiting controls coming in Essential JS 2.

Kanban

This release introduces a preview of the new Kanban control in the JavaScript suite. This control can be used to visually organize and prioritize your work, and streamline workflow transparency. This type of control is widely used in real-time task scheduling applications such as software and product development, project management, and task planning.

The Kanban control comes with a rich set of features such as data binding from local and remote data sources, swim lanes, priority rendering cards, templating for UI elements, stacked headers, work-in-progress validation, responsive behavior, CRUD operations, and much more for designing task boards.

Progress Bar

A preview of a new Progress Bar component is also being introduced to the JavaScript suite. This component can be used to visualize the changing status of an extended operation, such as a download, file transfer, or installation.

Key features planned for the control include:

  • Visualizing progress as shapes, such as rectangles and circles.
  • Customizing ranges with different colors.
  • Customizing the thickness of the progress and its track.
  • Displaying custom content at the center of circular progress bars.
  • Visualizing progress in segments.
  • Customizing the angle of circular progress bars.

DataGrid

Infinite scrolling

The infinite scrolling feature in DataGrid allows users to load data using the lazy loading concept. This means that data will be buffered and loaded only when the slider reaches the end of the scroll bar.

In addition, some customization options are being added for persisting data and DOM elements, like caching the loaded data, the number of rows in a grid, and the number of rows to be rendered at initialization.
