    • UltraToolbarsManager - Width

      It will be nice if we have option to set same width for each MenuTool in UltraToolbarManager. It looks odd when it has different width.

      • Support Full Compatibility with Entity Framework

        Since it is way too easy creating a binding between a DataSets and the DataSource property of the windows form objects I was expecting the same behavior, or similar using EF Context Objects. In Theory it should be this way because it's a newer tech, but in the practice they doesn't get along very well. In fact 1-1 relationships doesn't even appear in design.
        Plundering the internet I recently found a very peculiar article solving the problem for 1-* relationships by modifying the t4 template auto-generated by the .edmx model. However, even when it seems to work, it's a very…

        • Possibility to unfreeze headers on UltraPivotGrid

          This idea is about UltraPivotGrid component. If the user need to add a lot of dimentions into columns, that makes the header very long and leaves not much space for the data itself.
          It should be interesting to add the possibility to unfreeze the headers and thus be able to scroll on the whole table (not only data).
          This feature could be interesting for rows also.

            • UltraWinGrid - Parent row always visible when scrolling through child rows

              It would nice to have a parent row in a grid which is always visible whilst scrolling through a large collection of child rows so the user can see the row which a child row is associated with.

              It would be even better if you could keep the entire ancestry of a child row in view if it was nested in multiple bands

              • Varying Row Height For TimelineView Control

                There is only one row height setting for the TimelineView control. I would like a setting that behaves like autosize on a column so that each owner only takes up as much space as is necessary to display its data. Currently, you have to make the row height big enough for the owner with the most data in order to view all of it and this results in a lot of wasted space on the screen for owners that have little or no data.

                  • UltraComboEditor - Multi-select with filtering

                    When UltraComboEditor is used to allow multiple selections through CheckedList setting, it does not honor AutoCompleteMode and AutoSuggestFilterMode settings. Basically, when user type in the text area, it does not filter the list.

                    Filtering is essential for usecases where list in the combo is large, where user cannot manually/visually find the items of interest from long list of items in the combobox. Filtering is turned off when multi-selection is turned on. This is very common requirement and assumed to be default behavior. Requesting to make default behavior to support this.

                    • UltraGanntView - Show multiple tasks on one line - e.g. recurring tasks

                      Could you add a feature to show multiple tasks on the same line in a Gantt View? This type of feature is now included in MS Project (see screenshot attached) and it is really useful for short duration repeating/recurring tasks, where otherwise you end up with a very tall/long diagram if you have many incidences of the task, or you lose detail if you roll up the items into a single overview bar.

                      In our application we have scheduled tasks that consist of a parent record with recurring children. These children are all individual tasks (rather than one task with…

                      • UltraGanttView : Allow to specify duration, start or end date for summary Tasks

                        In the gantt control, when a task is added to an other task, the parent task become a summary task.

                        So you can't set "start date" or "end date" on the summary task because they re computed from its subtasks.

                        It would be nice to be able to take advantage of the "grouping" feature offered by summary tasks without having start and end date automattically calculated.

                        UltraGanttView control: Allow relative displacement for summary task (サマリー単位での相対移動機能)

                        • Radial menu should act like other controls

                          Currently, you have to jump through a bunch of hoops in order to place a radial menu on a form and get it to stay in the same spot while moving the parent form. Also, if you only want the radial menu to show on a single tab instead of all tabs there is even more overhead. It would be nice if I could drag and drop it onto my form, it would stay in the same position at all times, and not be independent of the form.

                          See this discussion to see what spawned the idea:

                            It's a long time wish. Image a real Property Grid Control in wich you can put personal editors, full customizable, etc.

                            I think that the control is integrated in your product, because all customization go throw property grids, but we have not access for it, it's incredible, isn't it?

                              There is a very cool feature in Excel called "conditional formating". Dependend on the content you can change the style of a cell. For example:

                              For modern looking excel sheets, this feature is very important. Please can you add this?

                                • Load and save Layout for WinPivotGrid/FlatDataSource

                                  To be able to reuse report configurations as used by the end user it is needed that the WinPivotGrid/FlatDataSource combination have a way to Load/Save the Layout including Selected Measures, Filters, Rows and Columns.

                                  As a minimum the controls should allow to obtain the current configuration to be able to save them manually and use that as initial setting for the FlatDataSource when loading the report at a later time.

                                  • UltraWinGrid Header CheckBox and FilterRow

                                    In the UltraWinGrid, we have a boolean field that is displayed as checkboxes and we are displaying the header checkbox.
                                    Furthermore, we are using the FilterRow to filter the grid.

                                    Apparently, the header checkbox enables/disables all the records in the grid, even if a filtering only shows a specific part of the records.

                                    See the forum thread for full details: http://www.infragistics.com/community/forums/t/60366.aspx.

                                    • Token Input Box

                                      We'd like Infragistics to provide a WinForms editor control similar to Outlook's To field which accepts a string and once validated, turns it into a token. This token can be removed either by pressing an X next to the token, or by pressing backspace once.
                                      A component like this is already provided by DevExpress and documented here https://documentation.devexpress.com/#WindowsForms/CustomDocument17088

                                      Please find a picture attached.

                                        • UltraWinGrid printing: using the UltraPrintPreviewDialog, Allow the user to define page breaks on columns

                                          The user needs to be able to specify at what column the report will wrap on.
                                          For example, I have a grid with 20 columns, I want the first page to have columns 1 - 4, 2nd page to have columns 5 - 10 etc.
                                          Currently UltraPrintPreviewDialog will group columns and wrap to the next page as it sees fit but we need something like what excel does where it allowing the user to define the column breaks.
