On Thursday, June 28, Syncfusion Product Manager Chad Church conducted a webinar showcasing the newest features in Essential Studio 2018 Volume 2. The release included the debut of Essential JS 2 for Vue, the final versions of our ASP.NET Core and ASP.NET MVC controls built on Essential JS 2, and much more. In this blog post, we have reproduced the Q&A portion of the webinar to answer any additional questions you may have. The webinar recording can be found on our YouTube page, or you can watch it here.
Q: Any plans for the Gantt control?
Q: Will there be a Word editor for Windows Forms?
A: We do not have immediate plans for this currently. We already have the RichTextBoxAdv control in WPF, which can be embedded into a Windows Forms application using ElementHost.
Q: Are you planning to have a TreeGrid component for Essential JS 2 like the one in Essential JS 1?
A: We already have this in our plan and will be implementing it by the first quarter of 2019.
Q: When will an Angular 6 version of Essential JS 2 available?
A: Our controls already support Angular 6.
Q: How do I apply a license using Angular? Do you have any example references?
A: We don’t have runtime license validation for the Angular platform yet. You don’t need to apply a license.
Q: How can we access feature requests? Can we vote on them?
A: We currently don’t have a public feature requests list published on our site. We do have a plan and it will be published soon.
Q: Do you support RTL (right-to-left) flow in the Xamarin.Forms controls?
A: RTL is already supported for many of the controls. However, we will make it complete by adding RTL support for the controls that do not support it in the upcoming release.
Q: Can you move your SSRS RDL and RDS files over to the Syncfusion Report Server?
A: Yes. You can move RDL and RDS files to Syncfusion Report Server.
Q: Do you plan to add a PDF viewer to Essential JS 2? If yes, when?
A: We do not have an immediate plan to add this control to Essential JS 2.
Q: Can I use Essential JS 1 and Essential JS 2 together (PDF viewer)?
A: Yes, you can.
Q: Can you explain in detail the Dashboard Cloud pricing?
A: Details about the Dashboard Cloud pricing can be found here: https://www.syncfusion.io/bi/pricing.
Q: Can I use RDL in Essential JS 2 for ASP.NET Core?
A: No. We do not have a report viewer control in Essential JS 2 yet.
Q: In the schedule, can the individual timeslots, e.g., 8:00–9:00 and 9:00–10:00 for a given column be assigned a color or even text? I’m not referring to the appointment type.
A: Yes, it is possible. We do have cell template support and renderer events which allow you to customize the schedule based on your needs. Please find the samples here: https://ej2.syncfusion.com/demos/#/material/schedule/cell-template.html.
Q: The Community License now requires a LinkedIn login. Is there any way to claim a Community License without a LinkedIn account?
A: LinkedIn is not required, it is just the simplest way. If you don’t have or want a LinkedIn account, you can create an incident with us and ask for a license. We will send you a form to fill out to confirm your details. Please be advised that our Community License can only be used by any individual or organization with gross revenue less than $1M USD annually, and 5 or fewer developers.
Q: Is there full support for Razor pages in ASP.NET Core?
Q: With the Xamarin image editor, is there any filter support?
A: Filters are not currently supported in the image editor.
Q: The Xamarin.Forms version requires license keys per app now. Are these per platform or per application?
A: License key requirements are per platform and per version. Once you generate a key per version, you can use any number of applications.
Q: The documentation looks good. Which tool do you use for documentation generation?
A: We use GitBook for documentation.
Q: Where can we get video tutorials/courses for Syncfusion controls?
A: You can access various videos on our YouTube page: https://www.youtube.com/user/syncfusioninc/videos.
Q: Can I run scripts inside the PDF control? Like external service calls while saving the file after editing.
A: You cannot run scripts inside PDF. But before you save, you can call the service and make changes in it.
