Although the second service pack for WinForms Q1 2007 is a couple of weeks late, it is now readily available for download from your Client.net accounts packed full of improvements. As I mentioned previously, this service pack was delayed primarily to ensure that a robust round of QA drove out as many bugs and performance issues as possible. And it looks as if the extra time has paid off.
RadGridView received most of the major updates in this update, including a 30% performance increase over previous versions. In addition to performance optimizations and over 18 important bug fixes, RadGridView received a number of new helpful properties, including:
- GridViewDataColumn.IsSorted - indicates if column is sorted
- GridViewDataColumn.IsGrouped - indicates if column is grouped
- GridViewTemplate.AutoExpandGroups - automatically expands Grid groups
- GridViewTemplate.ShowColumnHeaders - easily hide/show column headers
For now, check out the full release notes and enjoy the latest WinForms updates.
