WinUI 3 - Project Reunion 0.5 support

Scheduler (Preview)

The Syncfusion WinUI Scheduler offers eight types of built-in configurable view modes that provide basic functionalities for scheduling, managing, and representing appointments.

Key features

  • Multiple scheduler views: A wide range of built-in view modes are available for day, week, work week, month, and timeline views.

  • Appointments/events: Renders recurring, all-day, and spanned appointments to visualize your schedules and events easily.

  • Data mapping: Allows users to bind any business object to the scheduler appointment. This can be done by mapping data object fields to the scheduler appointment fields such as start time, end time, subject, notes, recurrence, and so on.

  • Time zone: Regardless of the time zone in your system, the scheduler supports setting the required time zone for the control itself as well as the events.

  • Appointment Editor: Allows users to create and edit various types of appointments, and reschedule the appointments by editing the start and end times. Users can edit an occurrence or the whole recurrence pattern of an appointment using the Appointment Editor.

  • Resource view: Allows users to group appointments based on their resources or dates, arranged by columns or rows in the day, week, workweek, timeline day, timeline week, timeline workweek, and timeline month views.

  • Time regions: Use time regions to highlight time slots in day, week, workweek, timeline day, timeline week, and timeline workweek views. Merge adjacent time regions and display them as a single region instead of displaying them separately for each day in week and workweek views.

  • Date restriction min/max: Prevents navigation before the minimum date and beyond the maximum date. This restricts users from selecting dates outside of a range of time.

  • Appearance customization: Flexible enough to customize the scheduler’s appearance and formats to provide a uniform and consistent look.

Linear Gauge (Preview)

Syncfusion WinUI Linear Gauge is a data visualization control that can be used to display data on a linear scale horizontally or vertically.

Key features

  • Orientation: The Linear Gauge can be oriented vertically or horizontally.

  • Axis: The Linear Gauge axis is a scale where a set of values is plotted. Axis elements, such as labels, major ticks, and minor ticks, can be customized.

  • Ranges: The Linear Gauge range is a visual element that helps you quickly visualize where a range falls on the axis track. Multiple ranges with different styles can be added to a gauge.

  • Pointers: The Linear Gauge pointer is used to indicate a specific value on the axis. The control has three types of pointers: shape marker pointer, content marker pointer, and bar pointer. All the pointers can be customized as needed. You can add multiple pointers in a single gauge.

  • Pointer animation: The Linear Gauge can animate the pointer in a visually appealing way when the pointer moves from one value to another.

  • Pointer interaction: The Linear Gauge provides an option to drag a pointer from one value to another to change the value at runtime.
