1. Wizard

  1. Introduced Default Step property to specify a starting step when the Wizard is loaded.
  2. The performance of Wizard widget is improved with the on-demand loading of the steps.
  3. Introducing disabledone and disableprevious properties (available through Script) to disable the done and previous buttons of a step. #doc

2. Live Form

Invoking the hightlightInvalidFields method on Save action of Live Form will highlight all invalid fields in red and display appropriate error messages. This method can be accessed from the Actions tab of the Advanced Settings property of Live Form.

3. Form

For Form and Live Form in Dialog mode, the On Success event triggers the closing of the dialog. This behavior can now be prevented by removing the close dialog event from the Events tab of the Form and Live Form’s Property panel. #doc

4. Dialogs

Dialogs can be made modal by un-checking the Enable Default Close Action property which controls the closing of the dialog using the “X” icon and ESC key. By default, this property is enabled. #doc

5. Richtext Editor

New controls like add table, font, font color and size have been added to the Richtext editor. #doc

Result property of the Search widget is exposed for binding to the data widgets like Data Table and List. #doc

7. Picture

A default image for the Picture widget can be set using the Placeholder Picture property. When the Picture Source is not available the configured image will be shown. #doc

8. Breadcrumb

By setting the Action Id property to page name, the path for the Breadcrumb can be generated dynamically. #doc

9. Conditional Class

For widgets like Label, Panel, Tile, Container, Button, and Anchor Conditional Class property can be used to change the display style based upon a condition. This is particularly helpful in the rendering of List, Card, and Data Table widgets. #doc

10. Canvas enhancements

Added representation for hidden state (show property set to false) in design mode for widgets like Wizard Step, Accordion Pane, Tab Pane widgets. This will help you to select the hidden step/pane in the design mode for configuration.
