Feb 25 15
Progress announced the latest release of Telerik DevCraft™ suite, the ultimate end-to-end toolset for professional .NET developers. The new release introduces powerful document and report management capabilities, new controls for building responsive web and native mobile applications, and increased productivity in Visual Studio. Telerik® products offer a number of new controls that provide fundamental building blocks for every mobile application, including ListView and SideDrawer for Xamarin and Windows Universal, as well as DataSource for Windows Universal. Telerik UI for ASP.NET AJAX introduces a new Bootstrap-inspired skin, a navigation control designed for building responsive websites, as well as lightweight rendering mode for multiple controls. New Visual Studio predefined application templates for AJAX, WPF, WinForms and Telerik Reporting products provide a better getting-started experience with Telerik DevCraft tools. Developers can build upon those ready-to-use templates immediately, or use them for their proof of concept. Telerik introduces a preview version of Telerik Report Server, a new end-to-end solution that enables business users and .NET developers to create and manage reports in a user-friendly environment with minimum development involvement. Telerik Report Server provides a centralized place for storing reports in a single database, located at on premise server instance, utilized by user-friendly web-based app for adding, editing, deleting and viewing operations over reports. Improvements to document processing libraries across the UI control suites enable users to create, load and modify documents in a variety of formats, and enable seamless export and import of documents or conversion from one format to another, without having third-party tools installed. In addition, the Telerik Client Export Manager for ASP.NET AJAX enables users to export whole pages or specific HTML elements from sites and apps to PDF.
