Ok, I admit, this post should have been released a few weeks ago, but last few weeks had been pretty hectic and I was unable to post about my pet project WPFSpark which reached the v1.0 milestone last month. Yes, WPFSpark v1.0 is now released !
I have revamped the CodePlex page to give it a new look. You can access it here.
This release adds four new controls – SparkWindow, FluidPivotPanel, FluidProgressBar andFluidStatusBar.
It also brings the following improvements to the existing three controls:
- Internal timer stopped when control is no longer visible. It is started only when the control is Visible. This reduces CPU load.
- Added the LowestAlpha dependency property which indicates the lowest Opacity value that must be used while rendering the SprocketControl’s spokes.
- Added the AlphaTicksPercentage dependency property which indicates the percentage of total ticks which must be considered for step by step reduction of the alpha value. The remaining ticks remain at the LowestAlpha value.
- SprocketControl now implements IDisposable.
- Added the IsCheckedLeft dependency property which indicates whether the checked content appears in the left or right side of the ToggleSwitch
- Added the CheckedToolTip property which is displayed when the ToggleSwitch is in the Checked state. Set this property to String.Empty( “” ) to prevent this tooltip from displaying.
- Added the UncheckedToolTip property which is displayed when the ToggleSwitch is in the Unchecked state. Set this property to String.Empty( “” ) to prevent this tooltip from displaying.
- Added the ItemSource dependency property which can be bound to an ObservableCollection<UIElement>.
Also, I have published articles on CodeProject detailing about the newly added controls . Do check them out. The links are available at the CodePlex site.
