Reviews for this release

very good release

I'm working from the latest source-code that you've made available. Unfortunately, there are enough bugs and issues that don't have a work-around that I MUST work from the source-code, so that I can code in my own bug fixes. I give it 4 stars because I recognize that it's a big effort to do this... but I give it 2 stars because of the bugs. Averages out to 3 stars.

These controls are very unpolished. ie. The Grid doesn't contain any paging, it is very slow, the scrolling of it is slow, etc... The NumericInput has 'IsTabStop=False' and yet it still hits the IsTabStop ? The source needs to be opened up, more releases with more fixes, developers aren't responding to questions on blog (ie. numeric updown)

This release is freaking hillarious !! - insanely many bugs and missing features ! - most stuff is faster to develop then to figure out why its not working as its supposed to !!! - Hillarious Treview events, empty Treeview properties and missing methods/properties are making my code-work a living hell... Gaaahhh !

Some annoying bugs in the controls (especially treeview). Good work anyway for the whole toolkit ;)

Great stuff! Thanks!

Woo! these are just amazing controls! I've never seen such good looking architecture for NumericUpDown. Charting is also excellent. And the themes and ImplicitStyleManager are a huge help when it comes to styling our app. thanks!
