Howdy Good People,

We have new release of DotNetBar for Windows Forms for you with brand new Circular Progress Indicator control. This control lets you provide endless progress indication in your apps as well as percentage based progress in 5 different visual styles. Here is how the styles look like:

And when control is in percentage based mode they look like this:

All colors are indeed fully customizable. We included the light-weight version of control for use on status-bars, toolbars and the Ribbon as well as stand-alone control. The progress indicator will also nicely scale to whatever size you specify:

There are over 30 new features and enhancements in this release. We added:

  • Ability to specify the image for each check-box state for our check-box control (CheckBoxImageChecked, CheckBoxImageUnchecked and CheckBoxImageIndeterminate properties)
  • Events that are fired before dockable auto-hide windows are displayed and hidden. These can be used to cancel the action if needed.
  • Schedule control now has ability to control visibility of tabs for multi-user schedule through ShowTabs property.
  • Micro-chart control now has event that fires as mouse moves over data points and also provides you with information about the data-point mouse is over.
  • As with every single release this one includes fixes for every single issue reported since last release.

If you have current DotNetBar license download latest release on Customer Only web site. Fully functional trial version is also available. We are working on even more major new exciting features that I can’t wait to share with you….  Let me know what else you need from DotNetBar.
