What's New in Wijmo 2019 v2
Check out the newest features and updates from Wijmo's second major release of 2019.
Build 5.20192.631 has landed. This release includes a several bug fixes and a new StepLine Chart type.
StepLine Charts are most commonly used to visualize change at specific points in time. They are useful for seeing the size of the change in value as well as patterns in change over time.
Wijmo's second release of 2019 has landed with several new enhancements, including increased support and functionality for React and Vue Interop.
React has exploded in popularity and we have been working to make our React support even deeper. This release features a few nice ways to define custom templates, including bindings in markup to all controls that have Items.
We added MenuItem and MenuSeparator components
We also added a new wjItemTemplate 'render prop' to various controls.
Up next is rich cell template support in our React FlexGrid interop.
Similar to React, we made some nice improvements in our Vue interop. We added wj-menu-item and wj-menu-separator components to our Vue menu component.
We added a Gauge.showTickText property to show text labels next to each tickmark
We also added support for needle-based pointers with the new RadialGauge properties and methods:
We added a new i18n template literal function to Wijmo. It allows you to build multiline strings with interpolated values, and makes it easy to handle single and double quotes embedded in your strings.
We made a nice Undo/Redo class for managing history of actions at the application level. Of course, you can use it just with FlexGrid if you prefer. But we recommend trying it out for your entire app!
We added a New CollectionViewNavigator control for navigating through CollectionView items or pages. This is a really common UI. It can easily be used with any of our controls like FlexGrid to offer simple paging through data.
We added a new SelectionMode called MultiRange to support this behavior. This allows users to hold down ctrl (or command) + select multiple ranges of cells in FlexGrid. You can use the new we added a new selectedRanges property, which gets an array containing CellRange objects that contain the currently selected ranges.
We added some new APIs for when you want to tune performance for more rare scenarios.
- new FlexGrid.refreshRange method
- FlexGrid.lazyRender property
- FlexGrid.refreshOnEdit property
This release features support for:
- Swiss German
Of course there are many little things we fixed or enhanced in the release like Resizable Popup or deep-binding in wijmo.format. Check the change log for the full list!
