The components provide your application’s users to create, load and modify documents in a variety of formats including:
Enable your application to seamlessly export and import documents or convert them from one format to another. All thanks to the intuitive and easy-to-use APIs of the Telerik Document processing libraries.
Extensive Set of Controls
Telerik UI for WPF includes a wide range of customizable controls – from powerful data-driven controls like GridView and Chart to small UI components like Rating and Slider. The suite provides a variety of data visualization and management tools, which allow you to edit and display data based on your business requirements.
Manipulate your row data in a GridView or Spreadsheet and visualize it through PivotGrid or other charting and diagramming tools available in the suite. Discover multiple components for daily or business planning such as ScheduleView and Calendar where end-users can easily plan their day and trace their meetings and tasks. Use the GanttView control to visualize and manage any project planning data in a slick and descriptive manner.
Exceptional Performance and User Experience
Telerik UI for WPF enhances the user experience by providing you with both the UI components and data virtualization mechanism for optimal performance. With Telerik’s controls you will be to display large amounts of data with virtually no performance trade-off (ex. Virtual Grid). What you get is exceptional speed and sleek end-user experience. Here is how we do it:
- Producing minimal and clean XAML
- Allowing you to load only the data within the current viewport of the application
- Implementing lazy loading – loading data only when it is requested
- Minimizing memory usage, robust code free from memory leaks
Telerik UI for WPF has a short learning curve and is easy to use. The suite provides for:
- Seamless integration with your Visual Studio Toolbox for quick drag-and-drop usage.
- Feature configuration using Design-time Wizards.
- Easy to learn API. The API is a close mirror of Microsoft. If you’ve worked with the WPF Framework and Microsoft’s XAML Controls, you’ll get up and running fast in Telerik UI for WPF.
The ability to drag-and-drop a complex control from our toolbox, wire up a few events, receive quick functionality and move on to the next work item makes your software development easier. Those functionalities, however, do not guarantee that the software created is well structured, easily extensible and unit testable.
That’s where Model-View-ViewModel comes into play. Telerik UI for WPF fully supports MVVM, allowing you to create reliable, well-structured and easily maintainable applications.
Touch enable your WPF applications with no performance overhead.
The built-in touch support and the Material, Office 2016 Touch and Windows8 Touch themes make your Telerik UI for WPF powered applications run smoothly on any touch device (Microsoft Surface, Windows Phone, etc).
Additionally, the controls in the suite are also built for touch interactions and provide for additional customizations
Coded UI Tests
All components in Telerik UI for WPF support Level 1 Coded UI tests and most of the controls already support Level 3 Coded UI tests, making Telerik UI Controls easily maintainable within any test-driven development process.
.NET Core 3.0 Support
Telerik UI for WPF includes a separate set of binaries built against .Net Core 3.0 in the installers and Nuget packages. This will allow you to migrate your WPF applications built with Telerik UI for WPF to .Net Core 3.0 applications and leverage all the benefits of the framework such as: side by side deployment, performance optimizations, XAML islands and more.
