RadarCube for WPF versions history
(May 30, 2013):
- TOLAPCube. Now it is possible to read the data from a database
and set your own converter for the data in the DataConverter event handler. The
demo application shows some examples of image reading ("Image Reader" and other);
- TOLAPGrid now allows to set up how the content is displayed
within the cells of the OLAP-slice using templates and template selectors;
- TOLAPChart. Images in the legend of chart axes (see the
example "Chart With Images");
- On exporting to the image format the legend can also be
exported. (See the property Grid.OLAPExport.Options.ShowLegend);
- TOLAPChart. Now it is possible to edit the gradient for
the modifying the measures with chart colors;
- New flexible pivot panels. The panel layout can be set
up in run-time or design-time. For more details see the description of the example
"Pivot Panels Docking";
- Some redundant properties hidden in the TOLAPCube and TMDCube
- TOLAPCube. Design-time Cube Editor improved ("Edit Cube"
button in the property editor);
- TMDCube. Design-time connection editor improved (ConnectionString
property in the property editor).
(February 12, 2013):
- Infoattributes are now shown independently from what is
shown in Tooltips;
- Optimization. The performance of the methods that read
data, visualize, save and load cubes is significantly improved. Now some cubes can
be built and read several times faster.
(September 10, 2012):
- New ability to change the background/foreground color of
the grid cells depending on the measure value or hierarchy members. For more details
see the new article at
http://radar-soft.com/articles/20120831170644.aspx and also the new sample
in the demo application named "Value-Dependent Coloring".
- Sometimes hierarchy members can mistakenly take its Open/Closed
state from the other members;
- Improved backward compatibility with the old saved files.
Sometimes the old saved files cannot be opened or can be opened with errors.
(May 24, 2012):
This version contains less number of DLLs: the
assemblies RadarSoft.RadarCube.WPF.Grid and RadarSoft.RadarCube.WPF.Chart are now
joined to RadarSoft.RadarCube.WPF. So be careful on
installing this new version, remove all references to these assemblies from all your projects.

added. That means you can now tell the different hierarchies
with the difference
in the shape;

interface, not only programmatically;
- The Hierarchy Editor and Calculated Measure Editor are
- The process window for the long processes is changed.
(January 27, 2012):
- RadarCube code is significantly improved. Drilling and
OLAP processing has been rewritten completely. As a result the grid hierarchies
with lots of open members work much faster and take less memory.
- Some serialization/deserialization bugs have been fixed.
(November 11, 2011):
- Design-time: when close and
then open a form with an OLAP
control on it, the "Null reference" error might come up;

- Design-time: Occasional "Null reference" errors when working
with a form designer;

an OLAP control is not set explicitly.
(October 24, 2011):
- Significant performance boost and memory consumption reduction
while displaying large amount of data.
- "Null reference" error appears once in a while in different
- The parent-child hierarchies do not show the member attributes;
- When saving the current layout in OLAP Chart and
then reading it back to OLAP Grid,
the "redundant" measures may be displayed.
(August 11, 2011):
- DIRECT: No more additional code needed to show the results of the Drillthrough operation.

members are still not displayed.
(June 29, 2011):
- When selecting a measure in the Quick Filter which has an active filter the previous
filters are now saved;
- The painting algorithm for the selected measure has changed as well as the algorithm
of selecting cells.
- The filter area mistakenly changes the size of the middle
column; no scroll bar appears on adding a new element;
- OLAP Chart: When selecting the Pie mode the color modifier
can hide and never show up again;
- On selecting the color of the measure text when the Quick
Filter applied, all values are displayed even those filtered out;
- The hierarchy members can be wrongly displayed in a ParentChild hierarchy;
- Nothing happens when clicking the "Filter" button in the hierarchy editor.
(May 18, 2011):
- Now when changing the width of panels, the height of the panels holds the same.
Also when changing the size of the window, the panels squeeze and do not overlay
- The quick cell filter no longer has the fields to enter value ranges manually. Also
when filtering the values the percentage measures are no longer thrown out.
- The error on selecting "Aggregate visible members" menu
- After dragging you can no longer sort the columns by values;
- Other minor bugs.
(April 29, 2011):

the article Calculated measures and members in RadarCube;
- Built-in error handler. Now all the errors that might occur when working with RadarCube
will not raise unavoidable exceptions in your applications. At that RadarCube can
"cancel" the action that led to the error - that keeps RadarCube and your application
up and running;
- New events TOLAPGrid.Error and TOLAPChart.Error allow to set up your own exception

of key features of the control;

(August 4, 2010):
We are glad to represent our new product - RadarCube WPF. RadarCube is already well-known
and loved for its power and flexibility when working with OLAP cubes. Now all this
comes to WPF platform, and it gives even more power compared to RadarCube Windows
First of all it works on WPF 4, using all the features of the platform, like parallel
computing, fast rendering, etc. Advanced WPF visualization allows to render any
WPF content the grid's cells - this is exactly what you always want to do. RadarCube
WPF also supports grid paging, just like RadarCube ASP.NET, and it surely makes
RadarCube WPF several times faster than its Windows Forms counterpart.
