    I posted some feedback regarding WinForms Rich Text Editor Control.

    The feedback is based on the supplied demos.

    So it can well be that something I am missing is actually already implemented.

    Is there going to be another release to replace the expired one?  In order to test, I'm using a non production project that I  still want to be able to work on after the expiry date.

    I want to deliver a presentation version of our software to a important customer. Some of the new functions from the RC are urgently needed. Is there a chance to extend the expire date?

    I'm currently using DevExpress components, version 8.1. My users need something like the "WinForms Rich Text Editor Control", so I'll probably upgrade to the latest version...

    I have one question before downloading it, does this new editor have Spell Check?

    Thanks in advance.

    As u have stated on your 2008 roadmap, you would add Gantt view support to the xtraScheduler components. but I could not see it in 2008.. I have told it to Julian on one of his posts, but he has not replied it yet..

    Hi Mehul,

    From a hard working and loyal client, please take this as an FYI and not a whinge...

    Being primarily a user of XAF / Win UI (i.e. XAF plus most of your win controls), I have not looked into this release because there is simply not enough in there to justify the cost of doing so.

    I would like the Filter Editor Control for ASP.NET (Criteria Builder) to have the ability to use some other functions in the criteria except the "Is greater than", "contains" etc.

    I think it will be very useful to include some date functions like Datediff and also some user defined functions that could appear in the same list with the predefined "contains", "is greater than" etc.
