Spreadsheet for WinForms, V1.4

MindFusion is happy to announce the Scheduling for WinForms, V1.4 is out. Here is a list of the new features:

Licensing

Spreadsheet for WinForms is the next MindFusion component that no longer has separate trial build of the control assemblies. Instead, set its LicenseKey property to disable the evaluation mode and stop displaying trial messages. If your application contains more than one control by MindFusion, you could call MindFusion.Licensing.LicenseManager.AddLicense(key) to specify the key once instead of setting it per each control. License key strings are listed on the Keys & Downloads page at MindFusion’s customer portal. Don’t forget to add a reference to the MindFusion.Licensing dll if it’s not already present in your project.

Visual Studio 2015 support

MindFusion.Spreadsheet for WinForms now includes support for Visual Studio 2015. The installer can create VS2015 toolbox palette for the component.

Autofiltering

Worksheets now support autofiltering. To enable it, just call the AutoFilter method of the CellRange class. You can specify autofiltering criteria for individual columns with the the AutoFilter overload. You also have the convenience to specify these criteria interactively, through the drop-down buttons inside the headers of each column in the target range.

Multiple Selection

Extend the functionality of your WinForms spreadsheet application by allowing users to select multiple cell ranges. You can

    even add cell ranges interactively, by holding down the CTRL key while dragging with the mouse. You can also do it programmatically, by using one of the new methods of the Selection class: Add, AddRow, and AddColumn.
