What’s New in the Ignite UI HTML5 Page Designer

Infragistics Videos / Friday, April 17, 2015

In this video we’re going to take a look at two significant improvements you’ll find in the latest 15.1 release of Infragistics HTML5 page designer: improved theming and data source support.

First we’ll take a look at how we’ve enhanced your theme support. Previously, the page designer explicitly supported the default ignite UI theme, but now you get additional support for other ignite UI themes, as well as some common bootstrap-based themes that you can easily select with the built-in theme picker. To change the theme, you simply select the theme picker, and pick whatever theme you want to apply. Here you can see the Infragistics default, a couple of other Infragistics themes that we supply such as Metro, and then you also have your boot strap themes.

Another improvement we’ve made is around your data source experience. One of the challenges with designing in the browser is the difficulty, of course, of accessing your various data sources.

In this release, we’ve tried to make it easier to understand, and work with, the limitations in the designer by adding explicit support for JSON P data source, and local data sources. You can see here, this is our JSON P data source, which allows you to easily connect to JSON P data source type.

So there you have it! A quick look at two of the neat new features you’ll find in the latest version of Infragistics HTML5 Page Designer. We hope you’ll enjoy – now go get coding!
