We are pleased to inform you that the version 1.2 Beta 3 of C#/XAML for HTML5 - the extension for Visual Studio that lets you build cross-platform HTML5 apps in standard C# and XAML - is available for download!
Learn More about C#/XAML for HTML5.
Here is what's new since v1.2 Beta 2:
- Revamped DataGrid control! Now supports PagedCollectionView for programmatically filtering and sorting + Built-in paging (default page size is 20 items, you can change it by setting the DataGrid.DataPager.PageSize property, set to -1 for no limit) + Alternate row background (coming soon: sort by clicking on the columns header)
- Much improved performance of Linq to XML (XDocument, XElement, XAttribute, etc.) and the DataContractSerializer
- Added the possibility to create a XmlReader directly with a string for better performance, via XmlReaderHelper.Create(string xml)
- Added DataPager control
- Added support for IEnumerable.DefaultIfEmpty
- Default padding of buttons is now the same as in Silverlight and other XAML platforms (3,3,3,3)
- Added Cshtml5_XmlReader and Cshtml5_XmlWriter as temporary workarounds for the lack of features of the built-in XmlReader and XmlWriter
- Further improved the TypeScript Definitions to C# compiler
- Improved the default style of HyperlinkButton
- Made the option "use http://localhost" more visible in the Simulator
- Fixed ChildWindow horizontal alignment
- Fixed an issue with DataGrid under Firefox that caused it to grow bigger at each click
- Fixed an issue where calling the default constructor of "BasicHttpBinding" did not properly initialize the Security property, leading to a NullReferenceException when accessing it
- Fixed an issue where items inside a ListBox did not refresh correctly with data binding when no ItemTemplate was specified
- Fixed data binding between a property of type Array and a property of type IEnumerable
- Fixed an issue where OnPointerReleased was called twice for each click
- Fixed an issue where e.OriginalSource in case of Button Click was null
- Fixed the Simulator error that said that a control can only have one parent
- Fixed error "System.InvalidCastException: Cannot cast to JSObject" that happened when resizing the Simulator if the page had navigated to a different URL.
- Added a return value to HashSet2.Add method
We are also working on many other features and we will release them as soon as they are ready.
