Diagram

The new features added in the Blazor Diagram are as follows:

Create swimlane diagrams

Line routing

This feature ensures that connectors in the diagrams no longer overlap with neighboring nodes when in contact, offering a more streamlined and organized visual representation. Line routing dynamically updates the connector’s geometry. This process eliminates confusion about the path flow of connectors, resulting in a cleaner and more understandable diagram.

Note: For more details, refer to flat data objects rendering in the Blazor File Manager demo.

Custom sorting

We’ve now provided custom sorting support in the Blazor File Manager. This feature allows users to override the standard sorting mechanism, tailoring it to suit specific app requirements.

  • Integrate custom actions, such as annotation tools, view ratio, or document navigation shortcuts, directly into your primary toolbar for quick and convenient access.
  • Customize your PDF Viewer experience by removing unnecessary clutter and focusing only on the tools you use most frequently.

Shortcut keys

The Blazor PDF Viewer now provides shortcut key support for page navigation, downloading, and panel visibility for comments, bookmarks, and thumbnails.

Data Form

The new features added in the Blazor Data Form are as follows:

Floating label

Now, you can enable floating label functionality in the Blazor Data Form by setting the EnableFloatingLabel property to true. This will dynamically move the label above the input field when the user interacts with the form.

Note: Refer to the floating labels in the Blazor Data Form demo for more details.

Additional data annotations

The Data Form component supports the following data annotation attributes for the model properties.

  • DisplayAttribute: To specify the display name for the model property. Now, the ShortNameAutoGenerateFieldNamePrompt, and GroupName properties will also be supported.
  • DataType: Determines which editor component should be rendered based on the data type.
  • StringLength: Specifies the maximum and minimum length of characters that can be typed.
  • Bindable: Specifies whether the field should be auto-generated or not. If Bindable is set to false, the field will not be auto-generated.
  • ReadOnly: Specifies whether the field should be read-only or not. If ReadOnly is set to true, the field will be read-only.

Dropdowns

Virtualization

Previously, the Blazor dropdown components (DropDownList, ComboBox, and AutoComplete) had a limitation where virtualization didn’t function properly while grouping the data. Now, the limitations have been overcome, ensuring seamless virtualization alongside grouped data.

Note: For more details, refer to virtualization in the Blazor Dropdown List demo.

Toolbar

Spacer 

The new Spacer toolbar item type in the Blazor Toolbar addresses the flickering issue that occurs when toolbar items are aligned using the Align property. The Spacer ensures a smoother user experience during initial loading. By aligning items using CSS flex, the Spacer resolves these glitches and enhances the overall loading performance.

Hi,

I enjoy using Syncfusion’s Blazor components. Please add a Download component, an Upload component, and a Print component – preferably without JS backing code, and suitable for Blazor Interactive Server Side Rendering and Blazor WebAssembly.

This is such basic web app functionality, I am surprised it is not already there.

Thanks

Jeff, Thank you for your feedback and for using Syncfusion’s Blazor components. For upload and print functionalities, while there isn’t a specific standalone component since these functionalities depend on the application’s specific UI needs, rest assured that these functionalities are seamlessly integrated into our existing components.

Download Component: The download functionality is incorporated into our File Management Component. You can find more details here.

Upload Component: We have a dedicated File Upload Component. You can learn more about it here.
https://www.syncfusion.com/blazor-components/blazor-file-upload

Print Component: The print functionality is available across various components such as Data Grid, TreeGrid, Chart, and more. You can explore the print capabilities in these components here.

Regards,
Rajendran R.
