New Feature: Resize Fonts and UI Controls
We recently surveyed a significant portion of our users to get feedback on font and control sizes. Thanks to all those that participated. We’ll publish a blog soon to share some of the insights. Meanwhile, in 11|6, we are providing the ability for you to easily adjust font and UI control sizes (up or down) across all or just a parts of your applications. You can therefore easily give users the layout they are asking for, or give them the ability to choose for themselves.
To give you the idea, here are a few versions of a grid with different font / control sizes.
See it in action by selecting the appropriate ‘Density’ values from the dropdown in our live samples.
Use our new APIs Canvas.resizeControls() (view docs) and Canvas.resizeFonts() (view docs) to do the same thing in your applications, or even offer these customization options to end users.
New Features: Component XML
Enabled and Visibility Rules
|Simple XML declarations can leverage the data exposed by DataBoundComponents to control appearance or behavior. For example, to conditionally display panes, make fields editable, or display and enable buttons.|
How Much Does it Cost to Upgrade?
If you purchased a license in the last three months, the upgrade to SmartClient 11| Smart GWT 6 is FREE. Yes, you read that correctly. It will cost you nothing. Nada. Zip. $0.00. Zilch. Jack Diddly squat. Zero. Your account has been updated and you don’t have to do anything except download the new release when it becomes available (or the pre-release version today).
If you are an existing license holder, but did not purchase in the last three months, you could still be in line for a pretty huge discount. Discounts are based on your last purchase date. See the table below for tiers, and contact us to upgrade:

Got Licensing Questions?
Major releases (e.g. SmartClient 11.0, Smart GWT 6.0) are paid upgrades. Minor releases (e.g. 11.1, 11.2, 11.x) are free with the major license.
See out licensing FAQs for more information.
