Progress Telerik Adds New Controls for Blazor, .NET MAUI, Desktop

The new R3 2021 release of Progress Telerik tooling for .NET developers is out with new controls for Blazor, .NET MAUI (evolution of Xamarin.Forms) and desktop offerings including WinUI, WPF and WinForms.

Progress announced Progress Telerik (.NET) along with Progress Kendo UI (JavaScript), but it's the former that is probably of most interest to Visual Studio Magazine readers.

There, Microsoft's red-hot Blazor project -- which provides for web development both on the server and browser primarily with C# instead of JavaScript -- gets much attention. Telerik UI for Blazor includes eight new components: Gantt Chart, Breadcrumb, Carousel, Barcode, Stack Layout, Grid Layout, Stepper and Wizard. Others were tweaked, updated and improved, says the company, which claims to lead the industry with more than 85 native components.

"The new Telerik UI for Blazor 2.27 release brings Carousel, Barcode, Breadcrumb components, along with more Gantt features, Scheduler & TreeView enhancements, accessibility improvements, Design Kits for Figma, compatibility with .NET 6 RC1 and much more!" the company said in a Sept. 15 blog post, wherein all of the new controls are presented in detail.

As noted, the Blazor tooling works with the new .NET 6 Release Candidate 1, which features much new Blazor functionality itself. After one more RC, .NET 6 will ship in November, which Progress alluded to.

"While there are multiple exciting new things Microsoft just announced and they will be a topic of exploration (such as rendering Blazor components from JavaScript), we are happy to say that Telerik UI for Blazor is compatible with the hybrid apps model via the Microsoft BlazorWebView controls for WPF and Windows Forms," the company said. "This enables you to embed Blazor functionality and one of the 85+ Telerik Blazor components into existing Windows desktop apps based on .NET 6."

Here are some new components and controls for other offerings:

  • Telerik UI for MAUI: DataGrid, Gauge, Barcode, SegmentedControl, CheckBox, Popup, Path, Entry
  • Telerik UI for ASP.NET Core & Telerik UI for ASP.NET MVC: OrgChart, Captcha, Heatmap, Popover
  • Telerik UI for ASP.NET AJAX: Date Range Picker
  • Telerik UI for WinUI: Sparkline, DataBars, Map, MaskInput, RadialMenu and Expander
  • Telerik UI for WPF: Badge control
  • Telerik UI for WinForms: Task Board control, DataFilter control

Many new controls and features were also announced for other areas, including reporting, testing/mocking and so on.
