Infragistics' new Motion Framework is aimed at Microsoft Silverlight and Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF).
Infragistics, a maker of user interface development tools, has announced a
new motion framework for developing Microsoft Silverlight applications.
The new Motion Framework
integrated into Infragistics Silverlight and Windows Presentation Foundation
, enables Extensible Application Markup
Language (XAML) developers to visually animate business intelligence data over
time, giving the end user richer insight into their data through an interactive
and engaging experience.
"At Infragistics we use an agile design process; we have
multi-discipline teams across the globe which build our design and development
software tools, resulting in exceptional user experiences," said Jason
Beres, vice president of product management at Infragistics
, in a
statement. "Developers can use our Motion Framework to animate, or 'play,'
data over time, which enhances the analysis experience that leads to new
business insight of information."
Infragistics officials said the simplicity and ease of use of the Motion
Framework is illustrated in two new Infragistics reference applications, World maps
, a real-world reference application deployed on
Microsoft's Windows Azure cloud-computing platform that tracks video play
statistics and usage; and Worldstats
, enabling users to add publicly available data
sets to a comparative analysis. Both reference applications demonstrate how to
program data visualizations with the Motion Framework, geospatial map and data
The Motion Framework is available now to customers with subscriptions to NetAdvantage Ultimate
, WPF Data Visualization
or Silverlight Data Visualization

Before software code is written multidisciplinary teams can engage Quince Pro
Infragistics' design review tool, to review, understand and collaborate on
projects. Several new and enhanced features, such as Design Boards, SharePoint
Integration and Pattern Sharing between Libraries, help interaction design,
visual design and development teams focus on the activities, artifacts and
capabilities to streamline the understanding of designs. Through the use of
threaded discussions, design boards and pattern associations, a comprehensive
library around the design intent of the project can be created, which is
critical to building software with the best end-user experience possible.
Also, Infragistics officials said when developing immersive application UIs
for the browser or the desktop, icons are an integral part of every
application. By introducing the NetAdvantage
, developers can quickly browse more than the 380,000 icons in
the NetAdvantage Icons
catalog, buy themed packs, or easily
customize their own sets and rapidly download icons in their preferred format. Developers
can also modify and customize icons and bookmark icons in the NetAdvantage
Infragistics icons themed packs are currently available through
NetAdvantage. There are icons available for manufacturing, education, legal, Web
and commerce, health care, business and finance, and software and computing.
