Word Processor

Content control

The Word Processor allows users to add the new content control or modify an existing one, and bind data to content controls in a Word document. It supports various content controls like Rich Text, Plain Text, Picture, Check Box, Combo Box, Drop Down List, and Date Picker. With this feature, users can easily design fillable templates, fill forms, and bind data to and from content controls in a Word document.

Improvements in error handling

The actionFailure event notifies developers when the Gantt configurations are handled incorrectly on the application end. We have enhanced this event to cover more cases, providing developers with better feedback and diagnostics when issues occur. This improvement will help ensure that any configuration errors are quickly identified and resolved.

Grid

ODataV4 routing convention

Enhances the DataManager ODataV4 Adaptor to support users’ custom action methods alongside the default GET, PUT, POST, and DELETE methods. This feature facilitates performing CRUD operations by invoking custom action methods when binding the ODataV4 service to the Grid.

Performance improvement

We are excited to announce significant performance improvements for Lazy load grouping with sorting functionality. These improvements are particularly beneficial in scenarios involving multiple columns for grouping or sorting large datasets in a grid. Below are the performance metrics comparing the previous release with the current 2024 Volume 2 release for 100,000 records across 5 columns:

Action Old release Current 2024 Volume 2 release
Single column grouping 10000 ms to 20000 ms 300 ms to 600 ms
Multiple column grouping (3) Page unresponsive 300 ms to 600 ms
Single column sorting Above 20000 ms 250 ms to 500 ms
Multiple column sorting (3) Page unresponsive 250 ms to 500 ms

Image Editor

Annotation enhancement

The latest update to our Image Editor significantly improves the annotation feature. Users can now draw multiple annotations simultaneously, enhancing productivity and creative flexibility. Furthermore, every action, including customizations, will be tracked in the undo/redo collection, ensuring a seamless user experience and making it easier to experiment with different designs.

Z-order support

We are excited to introduce z-order support in the Image Editor, a powerful tool that allows users to adjust the positioning of annotations. This feature is particularly useful for designing personalized templates like greeting cards or posters, where managing the layering of multiple annotations is crucial for a polished final product.

Types of z-order adjustments

  • Send Backward: Switch the selected annotation with the annotation one layer behind.
  • Send to Back: Move the selected annotation to behind all other annotations.
  • Bring to Front: Move the selected annotation to ahead of all other annotations.
  • Bring Forward: Switch the selected annotation with the annotation one layer ahead.

Users can now save an image with a specified file name, file type, and image quality. This enhancement provides more control over the output, ensuring that users can save their work exactly as they need it.
