What's New in Essential Studio for WinForms


What's New in Essential Studio for WinForms

2023 Volume 1 improves our Windows Forms file-format libraries with support to insert slicers to filter table data in Excel worksheets, convert a Markdown file to a Word document, and extract accessibility tags from a tagged PDF.

Excel Library

Slicer support for Excel tables

Users can now programmatically create slicers for Excel tables to filter table data in Excel files. This feature provides a user-friendly interface that allows users to filter data quickly by selecting options from the slicer. With this new capability, users can quickly, more efficiently, and more accurately analyze and manipulate their data in Excel files.

This feature allows you to enhance the visual appeal of your QR codes by adding a company or brand logo to the center of the code.
