What's New in Blazor Tooling Updates
In its documentation, Microsoft says the Blazor UI component system includes re-usable UI components from top vendors including Telerik, DevExpress, Syncfusion and Radzen.
Here's a quick look at what all four third-party vendors have offered lately in this rapidly developing space:
Formerly an independent company, Telerik, now part of Progress, just last week introduced the latest update (v2.16.0) to Telerik UI for Blazor.
The release features four new Blazor components:
- Stock Chart
- Context Menu
It also enhances the Grid, Chart and Menu components and allows developers to take advantage of new exposed Grid events to provide flexibility in applying custom logic when interacting with data rows in Blazor applications.
This company less than three weeks ago summarized what's new in its DevExpress UI for Blazor (v20.1.5) offering, which now supports .NET Core 3.1.5.
New features and functionality include:
The company details what's new in v20.1 here.
The company late last month introduced the latest offering, Syncfusion Essential Studio 2020 Volume 2.
For Blazor specifically, the host of improvements includes:
This company offers a low-code, rapid application development (RAD) solution which allows developers to visually build web applications. The latest edition of its flagship offering is Radzen 2.51.6 for Windows.
The company just a couple weeks ago announced newly added features, including Windows Authentication and a new MaterialDark theme.
It also unveiled built-in multi-tenancy support for Blazor
"When security is enabled Radzen offers multi-tenancy support (not available in community version)," Radzen said. "Multi-tenancy allows single instance of Radzen application to serve multiple tenants."
New guidance details how to create tenants, deploy to IIS and more.
The Latest from Microsoft
As far as official Microsoft offerings, the company announced that Blazor WebAssembly (the client-side component) now targets .NET 5. This news came in a description of what's new for ASP.NET Core (which includes Blazor) in the recent .NET 5 Preview 7.
