Excel Engine Features

  • Chart Support - With support for 70 different chart types, you can now create dashboard reports that visualize data in a clear and easily digestible manner. This brand-new Excel Charting API gives you complete control over how your charts are rendered with the ability to include a legend, a title, axis titles, and a vast number of options for styling such as gridlines, tick marks, colors and more. The best part, you don’t even need to have MS Excel installed.
  • Sparkline Support - A sparkline is a tiny chart in a worksheet cell that provides a visual representation of data. Sparklines are used to show trends in a series of values, such as seasonal increases or decreases, economic cycles, or to highlight maximum and minimum values.

XamSpreadsheet Features

  • Custom Sort Dialog for XamSpreadsheet - Since sorting is so important in any Excel document, a Custom Sort Dialog has been added to give you full control over how you want to sort your Excel data. For example, if you have a Department column and an Employee column, you can first sort by Department (to group all the employefes in the same department together), and then sort by name (to put the names in alphabetical order within each department).
  • Top 10 Filter Dialog - When you filter a list using the Top 10 feature, only the top number or the top percent of records remain. You can also filter to display the bottom number or the bottom percent of records. For example, if you want to list the top wage earners in the company, you can filter the Salary column to display only those records with the top ten salaries. If you filter for the top ten percent of wage earners, however, your list would include only those personnel whose salaries together equaled ten percent of the total. Although called Top 10, you can filter for any number or percentage of items you desire.
  • Filtering and Sorting Improvements - In 18.1, the AutoFilter dropdown was added to the spreadsheet. The dropdown had menu items for sorting ascending/descending, clearing a filter applied to the column and to apply a numeric/date/text filter. However, it didn’t have a way to apply a sort or filter based on the forecolor, fill or icon. In 18.2, that dropdown contains items to allow filtering or sorting based on the foreground, fill or icon of the cells within that column.
  • Deselect a Selection - Sometimes when you’re selecting multiple cells or ranges in Excel, you accidentally select one or more that you didn’t intend. Now you can deselect any cells within the selected range with the Deselect Feature. Pressing the Ctrl key, you can click, or click-and-drag, to deselect any cells or ranges within a selection. If you need to reselect any of those cells, continue holding the Ctrl key and reselect those cells.

XamFinancialChart

  • New Legend - The Financial Chart now comes built-in with a new legend displayed between the toolbar and plotting area. This legend show titles of the data sources and it also shows the last value and percentage change between first data item and the last data item.
  • Callouts Annotation - With the Callouts Annotation, you can annotate important data points in Financial Chart or even customize values in callout boxes based on your logic. For example, show stock split, dividends, or calculate maximum price in your data source.
  • Crosshairs Annotation - You can configure crosshairs to display as a horizontal line, vertical line or both lines at the location of the mouse cursor. In addition, the Crosshairs Annotation can show values of data points at location of mouse cursor and render these values in colored boxes over the X-Axis and Y-Axis labels.
  • Final Values Annotation - In Financial Chart, you can use the Final Values annotation to show values of the last data point in your data source(s). This annotation is rendered as a colored box for each data source over the Y-Axis label.
  • Tooltip Types - The Financial Chart has a new ToolTipType property that adds two new types of tooltips:
    • Category Tooltip which renders combined tooltips for all series at a given date
    • Item Tooltip which renders an individual tooltip for each series at a given date
  • X-Axis Scale Breaks - In Financial Chart, you can define scale breaks on X-Axis to exclude custom ranges in your data source or any day of week. For example, exclude all data items that fall on weekends.

XamCategoryChart

  • Callouts Annotation - With the Callouts Annotation, you can annotate important data points in Category Chart or even customize values in callout boxes based on your logic. For example, calculate maximum values in your data source.
  • Crosshairs Layer - You can configure crosshairs to display as horizontal line, vertical line or both lines at the location of the mouse cursor. In addition, the Crosshairs Annotation can show values of data points at the location of the mouse cursor and render these values in colored boxes over the X-Axis and Y-Axis labels.
  • Final Values Annotation - In Category Chart, you can use the Final Values annotation to show values of the last data point in your data source(s). This annotation is rendered as a colored box for each data source over the Y-Axis labels.
  • Highlight Layers - The Category Chart can display two new highlight layers when a user hovers over plotted data points.
    • Category Highlight Layer renders a vertical rectangle that stretches from the start to end of the category that is closest to the mouse cursor. This rectangle is filled with semi-transparent gray color by default.
    • Item Highlight Layer renders a vertical rectangle for each data item in a category that is closest to the mouse cursor. This rectangle is filled with semi-transparent color that matches color of the series by default.
  • Tooltip Types - The Category Chart has a new ToolTipType property that adds two new types of tooltips:

Also, you can customize appearance of these callout layers and bind callout labels to data items or calculate changes between consecutive data points.
