What’s New in ExtReact 6.7
Support for React 16.8
React 16.8 introduces the Hooks feature, that enables you to use state and other React features without writing a class. You can also build your own Hooks to share reusable stateful logic between components. There are major performance improvements and fixes in performance of React.lazy for large numbers of lazily-loaded components. ExtReact 6.7 supports React 16.8 to utilize the latest performance improvements.
New Grid Features – Grid Locking and Filtering
ExtReact 6.7 Grid provides Locking Grid, so that end-users can lock columns or “freeze pane”, similar to Excel. The locking grid provides a column menu that provides users with the ability to lock a grid column on the left region or right region. The locking grid column menu will show current locked status.
ExtReact 6.7 Grid also provides grid filtering, so that end-users can display grid records that meet specified criteria. The supported filter criterias are text, boolean, date and number.
New Material Components – Chip, Color Picker
ExtReact 6.7 provides compact material Chip that can be used in common user experience tasks like making a selection, filtering content and triggering actions. The chip component view can contain thumbnail and text. ExtReact 6.7 provides Color Picker, so that end-users can select the color picker using color swatch, form field or color selector. The color picker provides options to select color using HSVA or RGB.
Enhanced Components – MultiSelect Combobox, Select
ExtReact 6.7 provides Multiselect Combobox, so that end-users can see multiple selected values as tags in the combobox. A standard comboBox combines a traditional HTML text input field and a select field. The Multiselect combobox provides the option for allowing end-users to select multiple values in a combobox. The selected values can be navigated using keyboard arrow keys and can be deleted with the delete key. ExtReact 6.7 also provides Multiselect Select, so that end-users can select multiple values in the select field.
Build Custom Themes with Themer 1.3.5
ExtReact 6.7 includes support for Themer 1.3.5. Themer allows both designers and developers to create beautiful themes for ExtReact apps without writing code.
Note: You will need to restart “npm start” after creating new custom theme in your react app.
