GrapeCity Developer Solutions Releases ComponentOne 2021 v3

Pittsburgh, PA – December 09th, 2021 GrapeCity, a global provider of award-winning enterprise software development tools, is pleased to announce ComponentOne 2021 v3, the final major software release of the year. The highlights of this release include support for .NET 6, Visual Studio 2022, the WinUI development platform, and many other new features. In addition to UI components and features for .NET 6, the ComponentOne team is committed to .NET framework support for updating and improving existing applications.

The ComponentOne WinUI Edition is a native UI library for Windows desktop applications based on the WinUI3 framework. Now that WinUI support is out of beta, customers and downloaders can take advantage of several features, like a powerful datagrid with superior cell customization and high-performance virtualization. The WinUI Edition also includes essential calendar and layout controls, Fluent-designed desktop controls for building the latest Windows applications, and support for WinUI in desktop apps only. With these new controls, .NET developers can fill gaps and extend applications. Read the release article to learn more about ComponentOne’s new WinUI edition.

In the 2021 v3 release, the ComponentOne team migrated all .NET 5 controls to .NET 6 and released .NET 6 versions of TrueDbGrid, GanttView, FontPicker, and Scheduler. Customers will also find that the Print Preview family of controls (C1PrintDocument and C1PrintPreviewControl) are now out of beta. ComponentOne’s Visual Studio 2022 support includes toolbox, Tools add-on, and limited design-time support. Read the release blogto learn more about ComponentOne's .NET 6 and Visual Studio 2022 support.

The ComponentOne team has improved the design-time experience for FlexGrid in the .NET framework and Visual Studio 2019 with a new column bands designer. In addition to FlexGrid enhancements, ComponentOne has also introduced essential Visual Studio 2022 designer support for FlexGrid, including the smart tag. Now .NET developers can create multi-line rows and display selection statistics in column footers using new samples. Visit the release blog to learn more about FlexGrid column bands, multi-line rows, selection statistics, and other new features.

“This is another monumental release for ComponentOne with the introduction of .NET 6 with long-term support," said Product Manager Greg Lutz. “Microsoft has given .NET developers a true gift with this new, optimized development platform that bridges the gap between old and new—unifying the once complicated and uneven .NET family of frameworks.”


ComponentOne Studio is available via a no-charge, 30-day trial. Online visitors may also access tutorials, forums, documentation, and videos as part of the GrapeCity experience. Please visit the GrapeCity website and choose your product.
