Good news!

Will be a batch edit mode for the Grid available?

This is excellent news!

How about extending the tab control so that a tab can be opened/closed by user action: user clicks on an item in the main menu, tab opens and then can be closed by clicking an "X" icon - basically typical UI for a desktop/SPA application that uses multiple tabs to display various components. I think this feature should be available in the first official release.

I'm hoping that you will make the Demos landing page look a bit more professional, I'm sure this is just something that you wanted to get quickly up an running for the initial preview.

I also think that the old ASP.NET Themes (e.g. Office2010Blue/Black) look much cleaner/professional that what is currently available for Blazor. The grid control (which is really the flagship component) looks very minimalistic compared to the ASP.NET component.

Thanks and keep up the great work!

We'll be connected to BLOG to learn step by step about the evolution of DevExpress Blazor components.

Keep uploading new videos, they help us a lot mainly because we have little documentation yet.

Thank you and congratulations for the good work you are doing !!!

Hi Team;

a) Is the scheduler component a "Native" Blazor component or a wrapper around you JS component?

b) If "Native", and comparing with your powerful JS component, percentage wise, how much of the features the Blazor version cover?

c) Since this is a Server-side component, will the component have two-way binding with the server side EF entities, so if the entity data changes, then the component will react and therefore SignalR will update the client side? Basically, it's behavior should be like grid.

d) For us to show images on the form, is there plan to have a DX component to give us porweful image gallery capability, which also requires to upload images to the server.

Thanks in advance!

Thanks!

Hello Team;

The following is a question from a client of mine who is interested in Blazor development and would like to use DX Blazor components.

He needs to know, if DX Blazor will be offered as a "standalone" product, like for example XPO, rather being part of a bigger package, i.e. ASP.Net which includes 11 products, that he has no need for, for Blazor development.

Could you please clarify the direction of Blazor as a standalone product and what the price would be?

Note: I understand, it is in beta now and it is free but he wants to know, comes V1 soon, what will he be up against. That is what he wants to know.

Thanks!

Hi All,

Thank you for your interest in our components. Our team appreciates that you found the time to share your feedback and requests. All available components are not in their final versions yet. They will be upgraded and will have the required functionality in the future. Now, let me announce our plans regarding the features that were mentioned.

The Scheduler is a native Blazor component. So, all Blazor framework advantages (and disadvantages that, I am sure, the Blazor team will resolve in the future) apply to it. Compared to the DevExtreme Scheduler, V1 Blazor Scheduler will have fewer features. Our team is working on the most required functionality now and is planning to upgrade this component in future versions.

The Data Grid's most popular edit mode (Batch Edit), Dashboards, the Image Gallery, Ribbon and many other components are not in our V1 plans. However, our primary goal for Blazor is to implement all required components and features. We will start with the most popular and required ones, so your feature requests and feedback are very welcome.

Regarding the licensing, I am sure that the ASP.NET, DXperience and Universal subscriptions will include Blazor components. The other license mechanisms are under consideration.
