What’s New in 2021 Volume 2: WinUI

What’s New in 2021 Volume 2: WinUI

The Syncfusion WinUI toolkit includes feature-rich controls like DataGrid, Charts, and TreeView that embody the Fluent design for building modern and seamless Windows apps. The 2021 Volume 2 release contains a new control, features requested, and features we thought would be greatly helpful for our customers for the WinUI platform.

Let’s briefly look at each major change included in this release.

Production-ready controls

The following WinUI controls are marked as production-ready for desktop apps in the 2021 Volume 2 release:

NumberBox

The new WinUI NumberBox allows users to edit the numerical values. Its rich feature set includes functionalities such as number formatting, multiple cultures, watermarks, and up and down buttons.

Key features

  • Number formats: Edits numbers in currency, percentage, decimal, and other kinds of custom formats.
  • Globalization: Automatically changes the formatting style based on the specified culture.
  • Restrictions: Supports built-in validations, such as:
    • Accept only numerical input.
    • Accept only input within a minimum and maximum.
    • Prevent empty inputs.
    • Disable editing.
  • Watermark: Displays a hint of what is expected when the filed input is empty.
  • Up down buttons: Increases or decreases the numbers at specified intervals.
