    Hello,

    support@xceed.com will answer this – the forums aren’t open yet. Still working on importing existing content.

    We’ll take it, thanks. 😉

    Actually after rolling out the non-free Extended WPF Toolkit Plus on Nuget (in addition to the free Community Edition) and experimenting with how that works, we had already started reviewing what it would take to take the next step, which is to get our most popular .NET products on Nuget, and possibly even *only* on Nuget. So when I saw your post, I was glad we were already in motion for this. I’ll be reviewing this with the team this week.

    Hi David,

    No, that’s not Xceed. Another WPF component vendor announced that they were going to stop updating their native WPF datagrid, and provide only a WPF datagrid compiled from the same source code as their Silverlight datagrid. Other vendors have already been doing that. But not Xceed, our WPF datagrid is a top product and will be updated for the foreseeable future. We have a Silverlight datagrid which will soon get a WPF build too, but as an option, not a replacement for our widely used and best-selling native WPF datagrid.

    Currently we’re planning an important service release for it next month, and new features and performance updates after that.

    Please note that forum support is community based, answers by Xceed aren’t guaranteed (also, our priority is answering emails from Vanguard subscribers), and other users don’t always answer.

    in reply to: Roadmap ? #37243

    Hi,

    At the moment for the WPF datagrid we are working on bug fixes, build-to-order features for clients, and releasing our streaming listbox for WPF which we think will be the perfect compliment to the datagrid. Shortly we will be tackling loading performance in the WPF grid. For new features, now is a good time to tell us what you would like to see as we are in the planning stage, which will determine what we can offer in the next releases in 2011.

    Hi, at PDC 2009 we publicly demonstrated a touch version of the datagrid, but felt that without surrounding multi-touch controls from Microsoft being available to WPF users, it was too early to finish that up and release it. Since then Microsoft has released a Surface SDK for WPF which provides *some* tools for users to build multi-touch or touch interfaces but still not enough in our opinion. We’re waiting for a more solid framework for this before continuing.

    By paging, do you mean limiting the datagrid to loading what’s visible on screen instead of the entire dataset (all rows)? If yes, Xceed DataGrrid for WPF has the most advanced capabilities on the market for doing this. It is built in, and we support asynchronous loading of data while virtualizing, nobody else does.

    Check out this demo: http://xceed.com/bingbling <– Do a search and then try line down, page down, etc. See how data seems to “always be there” even if there are millions of results?

    Otherwise, do you simply mean having, instead of a scrollbar, “first | prev | next | last” controls on the screen?

    I seem to recall this issue being fixed — checking in the latest online demo, scrolling to the end of the grid always shows all the rows.

    There is a built-in mechanism to accomplish just that (to evaluate only what you get in the Standard Edition).

    It’s quite easy:

    – Install the download

    – Enter the “Resource Center” and click on the Licensing section

    – Copy the license key for “Standard Edition”

    – Provide that license key in your code when calling the License method

    Now, the component will no longer allow you to use Professional Edition features, plus you will be able to test on other computers (i.e. send a sample to your colleagues without them having to install the grid’s package on their computers).

    Hope this helps!

    I checked with the developers just to be sure. We have not tried JAWS with the datagrid. Windows narrator (similar?) does work though. If JAWS uses UI Automation, it should too.

    Would you try with v3.5?

    This is definitely on the radar, but in all likelihood will not be available from Xceed in the next year. It is further down on the horizon.

    …notice that rows and columns are not tabular data in such a control, it is more of a spreadsheet than a datagrid at that point, so we’re talking a different control altogether (I believe).

    The Excel exporter does not need Excel installed. The filename has to be “.XML”, it is the Excel standard XML format, so any .XML file exported by the Excel exporter is automatically recognized by both Windows (and gets the Excel icon for the end-user to know what it is) and also opens up automatically in Excel (the OS recognizes that it is an Excel file and runs Excel when you open it).

    I hope this clears things up!

    Daniel, a lot of us are at the PDC, and now that it is over, we should be back on track for our regular and frequent releases.

     

    ** EDIT: A service release is scheduled for the week of December 14, 2009 **
