What's New in Essential Studio for WPF

Desktop development with WPF is better than ever with spline ranges for charts, a details-view template for the data grid, and swim lanes for the kanban control.


Spline range area chart type

A new spline range area chart type has been added.

Bitmap support for range area chart type

Bitmap support has been added for the range area chart type.

Data Grid

DetailsView Template

Display additional information of a row using a template. Users can define the template for row details using the TemplateViewDefinition.


Preview dragging

Preview mode will enable the dragging of objects as an outline without affecting the original object.

Multiple parents

Tree layout and data sources will now support nodes having multiple parents.

Freehand drawing

Draw Bezier connections using freehand drawing.

PDF Viewer

Improved PDF rendering support

Now, PDF viewer control provides a robust rendering of PDF documents using the PDFium rendering engine.

Syntax Editor

Line background customization

Support has been added to customize line backgrounds when highlighting specific lines, similar to debugging in Visual Studio.

Essential PDF

XFA flattening

Support has been added to flatten the XFA form fields.

Essential XlsIO

Filter enhancements

Essential XlsIO now allows data to be filtered by color and icon.

Export Excel data to business objects

Export Excel data into an IEnumerable collection even on platforms that don’t support data tables. This helps developers populate business objects or model collections from an Excel worksheet very easily.

Trace precedents and dependents

XlsIO assists users to trace the relationships between cells and formulas in Excel workbooks by providing the following abilities:

  • Get precedent ranges to see which cells are referenced in the active cell’s formula.
  • Get dependent ranges to see which cells contain a reference to the active cell.

Print Excel worksheets based on page and printer settings without depending on Microsoft Excel or Adobe Reader.

Copy and paste enhancements

XlsIO now supports copying content and pasting it as a link, which pastes references of the source range instead of pasting values. When the original data changes, the information is automatically changed where the content was pasted as a link.


Import hyperlinks on images, allowing users to navigate to a webpage or another place within a workbook when they click on an image.

Rich Text Box

Table autofit-to-content support

The rich text box control allows users to automatically adjust a table’s cell size based on its contents.


Swim lanes

Swim lanes are horizontal categorizations that allow you to organize your current workflow by different projects, teams, users, or other user needs.


Split task

The split task component visualizes interrupted work on a task.

Pivot Grid

Caption setting in pivot table field List

You can set names for the fields in the pivot table field list populated from the data source. You can also duplicate the same fields with different names.
