While the version includes a wide number of small updates and bug fixes, let’s take a look at a handful of the larger updates.  We are continuing to work on wrapping up the massive 2020.1 version that is currently in beta testing.


  • A new TabDragReordered was added to AdvancedTabControl that fires after a tab is reordered with internal drag/drop.
  • The UI automation peer tree was improved to better support auto-hidden tool windows.
  • A new Shift+Esc hotkey now closes the active tool window.


  • DatePicker, DateTimePicker, and TimePicker were updated to support null values and a new Clear button can appear on MonthCalendar when nulls are allowed.
  • Numeric edit boxes now parse whitespace within custom format string literals better.
  • Improved various portions of Calculator's logic.
  • Improved the MaskedTextBox caret-moving logic.


  • Improved the performance in PropertyGrid and tree controls in a couple scenarios.


  • Added new ShellListView properties that can control how the control is sorted.
  • Significantly improved the speed by which ShellListView can sort Windows shell objects by property.


  • Improved the "Adornments - Squiggles Intro" Quickstart to show a more realistic scenario of tracking developer-specified tagged ranges.
  • Improved the performance of the CollectionTagger.Clear method when there are a small number of tags.
