With version 2023.1 of the Wijmo UI component written in TypeScript, the GrapeCity development team has further expanded support for React 18. Since the previous version, Wijmo has supported React 18, the new version adds the previously missing support for the strict mode of the program library. In addition, the team has increased the fine-tuning of accessibility in Wijmo, particularly affecting the more complex features.
Support for numerous frameworks
Although the developers had already added support for React 18 to the previous version in late 2022, there were still some limitations and warnings in strict mode. This is available in the current version of Wijmo. It is intended to help programmers find common errors more easily.
The Wijmo team states that they have made progress in the area of accessibility. The innovations include next to
FlexGridFilter-Popups an improved display of the checked state selector and a revised selector description label. The
FlexGridFilter-Popups are used to filter by condition and value for compatibility with requirements in Excel.
In addition, the property
headersFocusability Added to FlexGrid. It enables keyboard navigation in the row and column headings. The release is said to have also fixed several small errors that occurred in the context of the behavior of the Wijmo components in various screen readers.
