Here’s a look at some of the major new features.



Settings groups, expanders, and cards used for application settings UI
Most applications contain a window or view where end users can configure settings.  Actipro now provides several controls for displaying grouped and optionally expandable card-based editors for settings that are presented in a consistent, easy-to-use way.
  • Consistent Appearance - Cards have a uniform design, and related cards can be grouped together. Each setting card can optionally have an icon, header, description, and content.
  • Card Contents - A setting card's content is generally an editor for the setting. The content may be left blank, and the card itself can be made into a clickable button.
  • Flexible Editors - Each setting card can contain any kind of editor control. Switches, sliders, combo boxes, and text boxes are commonly-used editor controls.
  • Expandable Sections - Some settings have numerous child settings. These indented settings may be hidden under expandable cards that animate the contents when opened.

Application settings have never looked so good!

Shared Library


The new Card control presents visually grouped information for a single subject, using optional cover, thumbnail, header, and footer sections.

Cards can optionally be actionable and even support built-in integration with badges.


Various kinds of info bar severities

The new InfoBar control displays essential information to a user without disrupting the user flow. Messages can display with optional severity, action, and more.


Many updates have been made to the Bars controls to further improve features and functionality.
