Special offer announcement
5 bug fixes
  • In DateTimePicker and DateTimeUpDown, if an invalid date is typed, on lostFocus, it will fall back to the last valid date displayed. E.g. Typing "April 99" will no longer revert back to "April 9", it will replace it with the last valid date that was displayed.
  • In NumericUpDown, the Tab control can be used in propertyGrid to tab to and from NumericUpDown editors.
  • In PropertyGrid, when using EditorTemplateDefinition.TargetProperties with a type, the Visual Studio designer won't throw a "Collection is ReadOnly" error. Note that to prevent an "Expecting IList" error, TargetProperties should be defined like this: <xctk:EditorTemplateDefinition.TargetProperties><xctk:TargetPropertyType Type="{x:Type local:ValuesClass}"/></xctk:EditorTemplateDefinition.TargetProperties>
  • In PropertyGrid, if the ReadOnly attribute is used together with the ItemsSource attribute or Editor attribute, the editor will now be read only as expected.
