  1. c1DockingTab

    Add property BorderColor and a squared tab (other than rounded, slooping etc).
    With these property I can set the control look and feel like the new flats and squared trend.

          • C1DockingTab AutoHiding / ShowCaption

            When ShowCaption is set to False, the drop down arrow to list all tabs moves to the end of the tab bar. Could the thumbtack to control auto-hiding also move with it?

            As far as I know, there is no way to use the auto hiding feature effectively unless the caption is shown, and with the themes that our application uses the caption looks terrible in some cases.

            • FlexReport - add an overline property

              Hi,

              In FlexReport, you obviously have the property to include an underline mark for a field - but what about an overline one ? We are converting reports from another designer that supported overlines and we are obviously now having to manually add a line above the field.

                Hi Chris,

                Can you please tell from which designer are you converting the reports? FlexReport does not have Overline property, but it is possible to apply Top Border on a field which can act as overline.

                I am finding over and over again that I want to be able to show a simple grid/table of data next to a chart. For example to have a pareto chart, and then the raw data in a table format to the right of it (for example) To do that now I have to create a whole new subreport, duplicate parameters and data source, etc. it get's messy. Or I have to put the chart object in the Header and then then use the details section, but then the data is below the chart. If you had even a "chart…

                • C1FlexReport Export Raw Data

                  I would like to be able to export the raw data behind from a user chosen Data Source. The Export to Excel is marginally useful because of all the crazy columns (I understand why that's needed) but sometimes the users just want the raw data in nice rows and columns. Perhaps for Excel, each data source could be on a different tab, or let the user choose the data set to export

                  • Add a CheckBox to each RibbonObjects (default Invisible).

                    In controls like RibbonCombos, it is very useful to allow the user to block/unbock via checkbox the presence of a particular data (i.e. Customers: if checked the combo, i allow to choose customers, otherwise i can send NULL to Sql field).
                    Something similar to C1TaskDialog concept...

                    • Mandatory value

                      A C1 generico object with property IsMandatory would be cool: is mandatory and empty, it has a red backgorund (or somothing similar) and raises some kinda event.
                      If not, it works with its standard behaviour!

                                        C1.Win.C1TrueDBGrid.4 (4.020142.61400)

                                        when (finger touch) scrolling to end of the grid,
                                        the application form is moving with scrolling,
                                        is it possible to stop (form moving)?

                                        thank you

                                          Would be cool is each C1Component could connect into your server to retrieve a default localization for a specified language.
                                          That kinda of first creation could be make from Reg User themselves: like a kinda WikiPedia, that huge library could be updated from day to day...
