The company’s second release of Studio Enterprise this year brings new
controls, features, and benefits to the developer community. The expansion of
their offering for Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) debuts seven new
controls, from gauge controls which visually display data to input controls
which showcase multiple data formats and add data validation. As
ComponentOne’s control suite grows for Microsoft Silverlight 3, the amount
of WPF platform controls will increase as well, since their Silverlight 3
controls will be ported to WPF.
Built upon the Microsoft Silverlight 3 platform, ComponentOne’s controls
for Silverlight 3 included in Studio Enterprise consist of grids, charts,
gauges, maps, books, menus, treeviews, rich textboxes, layout panels, uploaders
and other basic UI and line-of-business controls. One control in particular that
ComponentOne added to the 2009 v2 release is Media Player for Silverlight. It
provides a player that runs media, video or audio using Silverlight and supports
the media formats supported by Silverlight.
ASP.NET AJAX developers will see improvement in the performance gains and theme
building options available with the five new ASP.NET controls: ProgressBar,
FormDecorator, Upload, ToolTip, and ComboBox. Another addition currently in
Community Technology Preview (CTP), and scheduled to release in the fourth
quarter of 2009, is a Web-based skin customization tool named C1 Visual Style
Designer. The controls we build deliver both speed and style for every
application, said Chris Meredith, product manager at ComponentOne. He also
stated user experience will improve with highly customizable ToolTips
(C1Tooltip) and an editable text box with an auto-searchable drop-down list
In addition, this release also includes new features for Windows Forms users.
Microsoft Office Excel for .NET users can now specify a formula for a cell with
the XLCell.Formula property. Added enhancements have been made to SpellChecker
for WinForms, as users can now use the C1SpellChecker control to spell-check
controls that derive from the WebBrowser class. Meredith explained how simple it
is to use, noting, Just drop the C1SpellChecker on your application and attach
it to any control by setting one property.
The Studio Enterprise component suite encompasses seven platforms and hundreds
of controls. In addition to the WPF, Silverlight, ASP.NET, and Windows Forms
platforms, Studio Enterprise also includes iPhone, Mobile, and ActiveX controls.
ComponentOne’s release of Studio Enterprise 2009 v2 enables developers to
take advantage of the rich new features and capabilities in Silverlight 3, said
Brad Becker, director of rich client platforms and tools at Microsoft Corp.
Microsoft is pleased with the various ways partners like ComponentOne are
developing tools for Silverlight 3 that will enable a new class of applications
on the Web.
