Will Ext.Net 4 support the Modern API of ExtJS 6?
Yes. The Ext JS Modern
API will be supported in Ext.NET 4
, although as a separate installable product This new product will be Ext.NET Mobile
and will be included with all Ext.NET 4 Enterprise Licenses
You will not be able to run Ext.NET 4
and Ext.NET 4 Mobile
in the same WebForms or MVC project. You would typically build two separate front-end user-interface projects, each dedicated to their target platform (desktop vs mobile).
The two api's (Modern vs Classic) share a lot of base code, although once you get to the Component level, they're significantly different. Modern (Mobile) does not have the depth of Components or properties that Classic (Desktop) does, because much of Classic would does not translate well to a Mobile interface, or is not required on Mobile.
At the moment we do not have a release date for Ext.NET Mobile, although it a huge priority for us and our goal is to release a Preview as soon as possible. It's going to take a while, so please do not expect until late Q2 2016 or early Q3. Once we know more, we will update this thread with availability.
- Ext.NET Mobile is coming
- Ext.NET Mobile will be a free upgrade for all Ext.NET 4 license holders
If you're interested in Ext.NET 4, it is currently on Sale and this sale price will be the lowest price we will ever be able to offer Ext.NET Enterprise. Purchasing now will save $500 USD, and you'll be first in line to receive a free upgrade to Ext.NET Mobile once available.
Hope this helps.
