ComponentOne has announced the release of ComponentOne Studio Enterprise 2010, “a complete suite of custom controls for Windows, Web and mobile application development.”
The new release features “many enhancements and new controls in [Microsoft’s] ASP.NET, Silverlight and Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF), along with support for Microsoft Visual Studio 2010,” the company said March 18. ComponentOne is a “leading component vendor in the Microsoft Visual Studio Industry Partner program.”
“ComponentOne has a tradition of being the leader when it comes to incorporating new technologies into new and existing components,” ComponentOne CTO Bernardo Castilho said in a statement. “This is most evident in the 2010 Studio Enterprise release given the company elected to write a new framework, referred to as the A2 Framework, for its ASP.NET AJAX control suite from the ground up.”
ComponentOne’s ASP.NET AJAX controls have features that are “fully extendable on the client side, including a GridView with asynchronous paging and sorting [and] a TreeView with drag-and-drop nodes, plus many other highly interactive controls. The 2010 release debuts new data visualization and reporting controls,” the company said.
“Users may effortlessly create and integrate interactive reports into their Web apps with ComponentOne ReportViewer for ASP.NET AJAX and choose from many new linear and radial gauge controls, all with rich UI [user interface],” Castilho said.
“We recognized the paradigm shift at Microsoft in their Web development tools and with AJAX 4.0 and Visual Studio 2010, and made the decision to build a framework rooted in Web standards, developed using jQuery and AJAX and extended in ASP.NET,” Castilho added. “The beauty is that ComponentOne’s ASP.NET AJAX controls work with all practices of Web development without breaking the object model that our customers have been using.”
ComponentOne’s Silverlight controls include a DataGrid grid control and enhanced RichTextBox, TreeView and Book. “This release version is compatible with Silverlight 3 and Silverlight 4,” the company said. For WPF, ComponentOne Studio 2010 features Scheduler, DateTimePicker, TimeEditor, DockControl, TabControl and Window controls, among others.
The ComponentOne statement continued:
““First unveiled at the Microsoft Professional [Developers] Conference in 2008, ComponentOne’s suite of iPhone controls now has support for Visual Studio 2010 along with support for top smart phones [and operating systems and browsers] in the market, including Android, Nexus One, Palm Pre, and Opera Mini. The controls, which are ASP.NET-based, allow a developer to create cutting-edge Web sites that mimic the iPhone and iPod touch UI when rendered in Mobile Safari. The value is that developers are able to stay inside Microsoft Visual Studio writing in C# or VB while using the same code base, all the while extending their Web applications by making [them] mobile. […]ComponentOne offers the full version of Studio Enterprise for $1,300 per developer.”“
