Sneak Peek at 2020 Volume 3: Major Highlights

We are excited to announce that our 2020 Volume 3 release will be rolled out by the first week of October 2020. In this blog, we are going to discuss the major highlights of this release:

  • WinUI 3 preview integration in Syncfusion Essential Studio.
  • WPF offline demos structure changes.
  • AndroidX support in Syncfusion Xamarin packages.

WinUI 3 preview integration in Syncfusion Essential Studio

We are happy to announce that our first-ever Syncfusion Essential Studio for WinUI preview 3 will be included in our upcoming 2020 Volume 3 release. You can get a sneak peek of our WinUI 3 preview controls and details about the WinUI platform in this blog.

Since this is integrated in Essential Studio, two separate installers, offline and online installers, will be provided for the WinUI platform.

Offline installer

Like other Essential Studio products, a separate offline installer will be provided for Essential Studio for WinUI.

You can install this WinUI setup to get access to our WinUI controls (assemblies and NuGet packages) and use them in your WinUI applications.

We are also pleased to announce that WinUI will be included as one of the products in our complete Essential Studio Enterprise suite as of the upcoming 2020 Volume 3 release.

Licensing for WinUI

As we are going to provide the WinUI installer, assemblies, and NuGet packages as beta, there is no need to register license keys to use our WinUI controls.

But still, to unlock the setups both online and offline, you’ll need to provide either your Syncfusion login credentials or Syncfusion Essential Studio WinUI unlock key.

WinUI NuGet packages in

From the 2020 Volume 3 release, Syncfusion WinUI control NuGet packages will be published in So, from your Visual Studio project, you can directly install our WinUI packages and use them in your application.

WPF offline demos structure changes

Existing structure

Up until our 2020 Volume 2 release, we provided a single application to launch the WPF demos from the Syncfusion control panel.

On launching this local demo, you could explore our WPF suite’s .NET Framework and .NET Core samples.

New changes

Now, the sample browser application is split based on framework, and separate sample browser projects are provided for .NET Core and .NET Framework. So, the procedure to launch the sample browser itself has changed based on the framework (.NET Framework, .NET Core) in the Syncfusion WPF control panel.

Based on your application’s target framework, you can use any of these assemblies.

Hi Balaji, I would like to confirm if it would include “PDF Essentials” Adding HTML Styled Text for ASP.NET CORE support in it? Presently it says, only for Winforms and .NET but no CORE in it.

Hi Imran,

We initially planned to implement the feature “HTML styled text support in .net core” in volume 3 2020 release. Due to stability reasons, we have not included that feature in Volume 3 2020 release. However, we will implement and include this feature in our upcoming volume 4 2020 release, which will be available by December 2020. You can track the implementation of this feature using the following link.

Please let us know, if you need patch for this feature. So that we will update you the patch once we completed that feature implementation before Volume 4 2020 release.
