Our WinForms controls still have more to offer in 2020 Volume 1, with new features in the DataGrid control, support to create and edit headers and footers with the PowerPoint Library, and support to unlink or flatten fields with the Word Library.
This feature allows you to calculate a summary (table, group, and caption) for selected rows.
This feature allows you to show the group caption text with the group caption summary of the columns.
This feature allows you to show checkboxes in a column to select or deselect datagrid’s rows. Entire rows can be selected using an intuitive checkbox in the header.
This feature allows you to set a gradient background to cells.
Format and convert pivot table cells with background color, foreground color, borders, fonts, etc. Also create, edit, and convert the following pivot table layouts.
Word Library now allows replacing a field with its most recent result in the Word document by unlinking the field. When you unlink a field, its current result is converted to text or a graphic and can no longer be updated automatically.
Word Library now provides the following features in Word-to-PDF conversions:
Import and export PDF XFA form data in XML format.
Find out if an existing PDF document has extended features.
PowerPoint Library now allows creating and editing headers and footers in PowerPoint slides.
Now you can load the ribbon control four times faster than before. You can also switch themes, add ribbon items, deserialize the ribbon settings, and open the Customize dialog two times faster than before.
The Ribbon control now properly releases memory after its instance is closed. It also properly clears memory after you close the Customize dialog and switch themes.
In right-to-left mode, the Ribbon control now arranges the ribbon items properly when loading and resizing. It also arranges the items properly in the customization dialog, backstage view, and quick access toolbar in right-to-left mode.
This feature allows you to customize the legend border, item spacing, and the visibility of the legend.
This feature allows you to stop and then resume a control’s update by calling the begin update and end update methods.
