The 2014.2 version of our WinRT/XAML controls have been released and are now available for download.
Major new features are described below. See the announcement post for the detailed list of enhancements and updates, including many items not listed below.
This version makes all the WinRT/XAML controls compatible with Windows Phone, meaning that licensed controls will work in both Windows Store and Windows Phone apps!
We've even added a nice phone-based Sample Browser app to show off usage of the controls on the phone.
Actipro Editors is a brand new product that we've been working on for quite a while now and provides over 30 user input controls for common .NET data types such as dates, times, numbers, colors, enumerations, sizes, and many more.
Each of the controls features unique designs that have been specifically crafted to support input by keyboard, mouse, and touch. Data entry is quick and efficient regardless of the input method utilized by the end user, which is especially ideal for universal applications.
All of the controls fully support Windows Store and Windows Phone apps, with alternate appearances as appropriate for phone usage.
We will be blogging and walking through all of the controls in the next couple weeks so keep an eye on our blog.
We've added a new MicroSegmentChart control for use on dashboards, infographics, or as progress indicators.
More details on this control soon too.
Along with various minor enhancements and updates, we have added a brand new premium Python Language Add-on that supports advanced editing for Python v3.x and v2.x. This first release includes parsing, syntax error reporting, code outlining, smart indent, delimiter highlighting/completion, and more.
Look for another update soon featuring automated IntelliPrompt! See this previous blog post for more details on the new add-on.
Several other fun new controls and converters are included with this version too.
- Added the TransitioningContentPresenter control, which uses animated fade, slide, push, and zoom transitions when new content is set.
- Added the ContentTransitionPreview control, which demonstrates a content transition by continuously cycling two content items.
- Added the ParallaxConverter that can be used to create a parallax background scrolling effect.
- Added the BooleanNotConverter that can invert boolean values.
