This is ComponentOne's first release of Studio Enterprise this year, and the primary focus is on Rich Internet and Smart Client applications. They have added new Silverlight controls, reengineered their ASP.NET controls on a new, lightweight Framework, and enhanced existing controls for the Windows Forms and Windows Presentation Foundation Frameworks.

Richly styled UIs are uncomplicated with ComponentOne's Silverlight controls. They added support for the most popular Microsoft Silverlight Toolkit themes. Their new image editing class, C1Bitmap, makes it possible to edit and transform image programmatically. Three new controls have also been added, expanding the end-users ability to edit data in Silverlight: C1PropertyGrid, C1TimePicker, and C1DateTimePicker.

With our C1Bitmap class developers can now load images (PNG and JPG), programmatically edit pixel by pixel, and show in an image tag or save to a stream with ComponentOne Bitmap for Silverlight (C1Bitmap), said Gustavo Eydelsteyn, managing director at ComponentOne. Prior to our release, Microsoft Silverlight 2 developers did not have access to the Bitmap class.

For their reengineered ASP.NET controls, the company has taken advantage of the latest Web technology to simplify the use of its controls. The new C1GridView for ASP.NET now shares a similar object model to the out-of-the box Microsoft GridView, making for effortless transition and at the same time, gaining features including row filtering, virtual scrolling, and an extensive client-side object model.

The biggest enhancement to the suites Windows Forms controls is visible in its PDF for .NET control. This control now supports AcroForms/AcroFields and HTML rendering. Developers can create Acrobat forms with the following filed types: textbox, checkbox, radio button, push button, combo box, and list box.

ComponentOne rounds out their component suite with controls for Windows Presentation Foundation, iPhone, Mobile, and ActiveX. With the lack of spell-checking capabilities in Microsoft Visual Studio, ComponentOne has added IntelliSpell to Studio Enterprise. This add-in spell-checks code, comments, strings, HTML, XML, resources and general text in both Visual Studio 2008 and Visual Studio 2005.
