2020 Volume 1 brings a variety of enhancements to our Vue component library, including new Kanban, Progress Bar, and Dropdown Tree controls; resource view support for the Gantt Chart; and web layout support for the Word Processor.
The Kanban component is used to visually organize and prioritize your work, and also for workflow transparency. The component is widely used in real-time task scheduling such as for software and product development, project management, and task planning.
A preview version of the new Dropdown Tree component is now available for the Vue suite. This component allows you to select single or multiple values from hierarchical data in a tree-like structure. It has several out-of-the-box features, such as data binding, check boxes, templates, UI customization, accessibility, and preselected values.
A new progress bar control has been introduced. This is used to visualize the changing status of an extended operation such as a download, file transfer, or installation. It also represents the progress with text format as percent.
Allows users to add a legend for targets, actual values, and ranges in bullet charts.
Enables users to highlight data points and apply patterns to highlighted and selected points.
The rendered circular gauge can be printed or exported to PNG, JPEG, SVG, and PDF formats.
An option to change the range values of the circular gauge by drag is provided now.
An option to customize the start and end width of the needle pointer is provided.
This feature allows users to set the diagram grid pattern to dots in addition to the existing straight-lines grid pattern.
This feature allows users to set the native template to HTML shapes in addition to the existing string template. Users can customize the look and feel of the template for each node, resulting in a better user experience and more flexibility.

Manually schedule tasks without any child/predecessor task dependencies. Also, change the mode of each task dynamically from auto to manual and vice versa.
Resource units indicate the amount of work that can be done by the resources for a particular task in a day.
Visualize the list of tasks assigned to each resource in hierarchical manner. Add or remove one or more resources from each task.
Work is denoted as the total hours required to complete a task. Work depends on the resources unit and duration of a task.
Infinite scrolling allows users to load data using the lazy loading concept. This means that the buffered data will be loaded only when the scrollbar reaches the end of the scroller. Along with that, some customization options to persist data and DOM elements, like cache the loaded data, the number of rows maintained in a grid, and the number of rows to be rendered at Data Grid initialization, have been provided.
Use inline and dialog editing in virtualization-enabled Data Grid.
Provided multiple rows support for x axis. Now, the excess text will not overlap the text in the next column.
Provided trim support for both the axes (X and Y).

Complex data in the data sources can now be parsed and utilized in the Maps control for bubbles, markers, color mapping, and more.

The design of the Pivot Table have been enhanced for a more compact view. The cells can also now be differentiated by their background colors. These enhancements have been done for all the themes: Material, Fabric, Bootstrap, Bootstrap v4, and high contrast.
Now the aggregation type “Distinct Count” has support for the string data type along with the existing aggregation type “Count”. The aggregation types can be switched dynamically with a drop-down available in the grouping bar and field list when the field is bound in the value axis.
In the grouping bar and field list, users can customize button options: show or hide icons (sort, filter, remove, aggregate), restrict drag of a particular field, restrict drop to a particular axis, etc.
Instead of displaying all aggregation types, users can add selected aggregation types to the built-in context menu based on their application requirements.
Users can view raw items in a separate dialog by clicking on a chart series similar to a pivot table. In addition, users can also edit, add, and remove raw items and display the result in a pivot chart with the help of editing support.
Users can now set credentials in a report to access the OLAP cube connected to the Pivot Table.
Users can design their own tooltip with a tooltip template. One can be used for both the Pivot Table and Pivot Chart or each can be set individually.
An option is included in the calculated field dialog to dynamically format the new field. You can also view and edit the format of the existing calculated fields with the option.
An option is included in the built-in toolbar to display a pivot chart either with a single axis or multiple axes.
Instead of displaying all chart types, users can add selected chart types to the built-in context menu based on their application requirements.
Sorting options such as default, ascending, and descending are included in the member editor to sort its members. It sorts out only the members inside the dialog and not the Pivot Table.
An edit option is included in the button that represents the calculated field in the grouping bar and field list. It opens the calculated field dialog in edit mode so you can make changes.
