Material Design In XAML Toolkit: version 1.2


I’m happy to say that Material Design In XAML Toolkit version 1.2 has rolled, bringing yet more polish and features that are hopefully going to help people bring their desktop applications to life.


GitHub Release NuGet Package Key features of note: ComboBox styling

This great PR as brought the combo style bang up to date with Google’s spec, and it looks great.

TimePicker goes 24 hour

<materialDesign:Clock Is24Hours="True" DisplayAutomation="Cycle" />

Thanks to pauloquicoli for helping out here.

AdditionalSlider theme

<Slider Minimum="0" Maximum="10" Style="{DynamicResource MaterialDesignDiscreteSlider}" /> DialogHost improvements

The DialogHost control providesMaterial Designed themed popupsandalso provides acomprehensive API to deal with popup dialogs, which have traditionally been a pain point for WPF developers. This release polishes some of the API for both MVVM and code-behind scenarios. Some great community testing has helped round this off, and alsosome code comes from here .

Thanks to all contributors for helping to not only move this projectforward, but also helpingdrive its success; it’s really exciting how much traction this library has gained since I started it.

Coming Next

For 1.3 I’ve already started working on a “Multiple Floating Action Button” which is quite common on Android, and there will be a few smaller tweaks. Also, as ever, I’ll be plugging away at Dragablzas I try and approach a version 1.0. UWP stuff? Still a pet project at the moment :)
