Also note that the online product documentation has recently been updated and it’s not using better styles and more code snippets. And this is for other products too, just check Documentation links from our product pages.
You can also find a new hierarchical data WPF component available with the latest build of DlhSoft Hierarchical Data Light Library: OrganizationalChartView.
Separately, we have more good news again: until August 31, all our license prices receive unconditional 30% discount!
If you have any questions or need help for integrating our components into your application, don’t hesitate to contact DlhSoft Support – it’s 100% free and unlimited, even before purchasing a license!
If you looked at our Hierarchical Data Light Library before you noticed that it included a DataTreeGrid WPF control that combines DataGrid and TreeView built-in components of .NET Framework. Moreover, the data hierarchy doesn’t require you to define a tree of objects nor complex HierarchicalDataTemplate instances, but instead we support a simple Indentation property on item level to indicate the hierarchical structure of your data, and the component does the magic of interpreting it behind the scenes.
The same happens now with the brand new WPF 4.5 based OrganizationalChartView component: simply define your data as a flat item collection with indentation values, and we’ll create a tree-view like container displaying the nodes and allowing the end user to select, or expand and collapse them with simple mouse clicks or taps!
There is no LightSwitch extension for ScheduleChartDataGrid component from Gantt Chart Light Library (as there is one for GanttChartDataGrid), but you can use the Silverlight component directly in LightSwitch by just writing some custom code to link it properly.
We’ve prepared a small sample application showing how one can set up ScheduleChartDataGrid component as Custom Control in a LightSwitch screen, binding to entities organized as resources (to be displayed as rows) and tasks (to be displayed as assignment bars in the Gantt Chart area).
Download it now: it includes full C# source code packaged as a Visual Studio 2013 LightSwitch desktop solution that you may adapt to your own needs.
Microsoft prepared a new Office 365 tool: Planner. Do you consider integrating it into your apps? If yes, how can DlhSoft help you the best? Maybe presenting Planner data with a DlhSoft Gantt Chart component?
Please respond to a very short survey (1 question only!) that will help us understand your future plans regarding this, and guide our next actions on component development side. Thank you in advance!
Update: We’ve also prepared a beta app to display Planner projects and tasks using a Gantt Chart. Check it out!
Each sample app supports a suite of themes that we have made available for developers as well, with full source code, using separate themes and templates script files that configure the components as needed – use them whenever you want!
Of course, we will develop and add even more samples in the same fashion there, as soon as possible!
And related to this, note that our Get Started documentation guides have also been redesigned for most DlhSoft products. Enjoy!
We hope that the last month – that we used mostly to analyze, redesign, and publish more content on our Web site, restyling all pages and adding a lot more information and code samples available without any download – will be helpful for you, dear developers. We are sure that development will now be easier than ever.
As mentioned a few time ago, we have recently designed and developed a Kanban board component for AngularJS, described by the new Kanban Library product page on our Web site.
Note that we offer this product 100% free, both for personal and commercial uses, under the MIT license, to anyone who needs it! Find the project, its source code, and further information on GitHub (DlhSoftTeam/Angular-Kanban repository).
To use the board component in your Angular app, simply add the appropriate DlhSoft.KanbanLibrary package and bind the items attribute of the ds-kanban-board directive to your task array in the controller’s scope. Enjoy!
