Syncfusion Releases JavaScript Controls

Syncfusion has released its Essential Studio Enterprise Edition 2013 Volume 4 as a package that represents all the firm's User Interface, reporting, and business intelligence components and libraries in one suite.

The new product features particular changes in the domains of JavaScript and XAML-based development. This volume 4 iteration marks the official release of Essential Studio for JavaScript and a collection of LightSwitch extensions.

According to MSDN, "Visual Studio LightSwitch is a development environment designed to simplify and shorten the development of business applications and data services. LightSwitch makes it easy to create data-centric business applications that can consume a variety of data sources and create clients that can run on a variety of devices."

New additions to the JavaScript suite for Syncfusion include a rich-text editor, map, tree map, range navigator, bar-code, date-time picker, and rotator controls. Syncfusion's collection of LightSwitch extensions provides more extensions than its beta, including new bulletgraph, gauge, map, tree map, range navigator, sparkline, and OLAP client extensions.

"These JavaScript controls are designed to meet enterprise needs," said product manager Chad Church. "The JavaScript chart and grid controls alone go a long way in achieving that, but the other 35 controls make it a complete enterprise solution, not to mention that we now have JavaScript wrappers for ASP.NET Web Forms and ASP.NET MVC."

Additional highlights of Volume 4 include news that all platforms of Essential Studio Enterprise Edition are compatible with Visual Studio 2013 and Windows 8.1. A PDF viewer and rich-text editor for WinRT is included along with 3-D charts in Syncfusion's WinRT, WPF, Silverlight, and Windows Phone suites.
