WEBINAR Q&A : How to Build Office-Inspired Apps

Anand Raja / Tuesday, June 24, 2014

The following are the answers to the questions that were submitted to the Q&A box during the webinar on 6/19/2014.  Thanks again for attending.

Q:  Is the new control (xamDiagram) available to WinForm application?

A: The control is currently built in XAML – however you could use this WPF control within your Windows Forms application through the use of Element Host.

Here is a Microsoft article walk-through that shows how you can do this. You can use any WPF control that you like: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms742215(v=vs.110).aspx


Q: For WPF Excel component, is it possible to hide the header and left most column (ie. the A,B,C and 1,2,3) so a user wouldnt realize its a spreadsheet?

A: Yes, this is possible – the Worksheet object has this property: http://help.infragistics.com/doc/WPF/2014.1/CLR4.0/?page=InfragisticsWPF4.Documents.Excel.v14.1~Infragistics.Documents.Excel.DisplayOptions~ShowRowAndColumnHeaders.html

So, you would do something like this: MyWorkSheet.DisplayOptions.ShowRowAndColumnHeaders = false;

Just get a reference to the Worksheet in the Worksheet collection or whenever you create and add a worksheet, keep track of the reference to that worksheet.

Q: Will you have any more in depth webinars on the WPF IG Outlook sample...?

A: We currently do not have any scheduled at the moment, however, we will give your suggestion to the product / marketing team for future webinar possibilities. And, as you know, you can always get in touch with our Developer Support if you ever had any questions on how to go about building this, or if you run into any problems, questions, or not sure which direction to go when putting this together.
