Powering JavaScript To ASP.NET Controls


Syncfusion has released Essential Studio Enterprise Edition 2014, Volume 2. The release includes several updates, such as a new set of ASP.NET controls completely driven by HTML 5 and JavaScript. It also introduces the company's suite of universal Windows app controls.

The new version of Syncfusion's ASP.NET suite is fully rendered on the client side to hopefully improve user interaction and performance. All the controls are said to have a "rich design time experience" (we think that means they're OK to use) and also allow data binding to server-side data sources.

"Previous versions of Essential Studio for ASP.NET, now referred to as ASP.NET Classic, will continue to be supported," said Daniel Jebaraj, vice president of Syncfusion.

The Volume 2 release also marks the beginning of Syncfusion support for universal Windows apps, enabling developers to more efficiently (says Syncfusion) create apps for the family of Windows devices and expand their customer base across Windows tablets, phones, and desktops. The initial set of more than 30 universal app controls from Syncfusion will include innovative charts, grids, and more.

Updates have been made to the other Essential Studio platforms, such as touch support for Windows Forms. Several new controls have also been added, including new Windows Forms controls, such as a maps control, and rating control. Syncfusion has also added support for TypeScript to its JavaScript suite. (TypeScript is a development language that aids in the structuring of code in JavaScript, which is especially useful when dealing with complex or large-scale applications.)
