DataGrid

Column auto-sizing for visible rows

This feature supports auto-sizing DataGrid columns based on the visible rows rather than all rows. This enhancement aims to improve DataGrid’s performance by reducing the loading time, especially for grids with a large number of rows, by avoiding the need to calculate sizes for rows that are not currently displayed.

With this enhancement, the manual layout for the legend area and plot area will be preserved properly during chart-to-image conversion.

Metafile image preservation

With this enhancement, metafile images, such as .emf and .wmf files, will be properly preserved during the conversion of Excel files to PDFs or images, maintaining the detail and quality of these images.

Custom font support

This feature provides an API for adding custom fonts. These fonts will be automatically used when converting Excel files to PDF and image formats, ensuring that documents maintain their specified typography even if the fonts are not available in the environment.

  • DROP

Word Library

WordArt in DOCX

WordArt refers to text elements with decorative effects like shadows, reflections, glows, bevels, and even 3D rotations and transformations. With this enhancement, the .NET Word Library guarantees the visual integrity of these decorative text elements when working with DOCX files.

HTML-to-Word conversion enhancement

The .NET Word Library previously only accepted XHTML that adhered to XML standards and required correct opening and closing tags, even after validation through the XHTMLValidation.None API. Now, the Word Library accommodates HTML that does not meet XML standards.

Word-to-PDF and image conversion enhancements
