A new maintenance release of the WPF Controls is now available.

Detailed Update List


  • Changed the ISeriesStyleSelector.SelectBarStyle method to be passed bar index and count, allowing for individual bars to be customized.


  • Updated the docking window container UIA hierarchy to better support Coded UI Test.
  • Updated clicks on auto-hide tabs to focus the tab prior to opening/closing the auto-hide popup.

  • Improved the logic when dragging over linked nested dock sites such that a dock host in the same dock site will be targeted by default. If the Shift modifier key is pressed, an alternate child/parent dock site's dock host that intersects the same location can be targeted.
