PlatinumGrid Update 5 Released!
We're really happy to announce that, at long last, PlatinumGrid Update 5 has been released.
We apologize for the delay in getting this release out and hope that the new features
will have made it worthwhile.
The big new feature in this release is the support for column summaries. PlatinumGrid now supports
both group and grid summaries, with the following aggregate functions: Average, Count, Maximum, Minimum
and Sum. The output of the summary calculation can optionally be formatted using an event handler.
The display of the summaries is controlled by a set of properties on each column. The properties for
group and grid summaries are independant to provide maximum flexibility. For example, the group summary for
a column can indicate the number of rows in the group, while the grid summary for that column displays the average
of the column's values.
There have been other, less important, changes and bug fixes in this release:
- JT_NOSUBQUERIES define for database engines that do not support sub-queries
- Upgraded Spreadsheet_Excel_Writer library to latest version.
- OnRowInserted and OnRowEdited events now pass fields by reference, so that additional fields can be altered.
- Updated basic custom SQL example.
- Issues with calculating record count.
- Filter not being preserved between requests.
- Hyperlink support.
- Export did not use TextField for text columns.
- Filtering did not use TextField for text columns.
- JSON encoding issues with column data.
- Filter selector issues caused by new JTComboBox control.
- Pager quirks when no records in dataset.
- Missing jQuery file from deployment.
