Syncfusion Essential Studio 2014 Volume 2


Syncfusion has launched Essential Studio 2014 Volume 2 with a new set of ASP.NET controls driven by HTML 5 and JavaScript. The new version of Syncfusion's ASP.NET suite is rendered on the client side and all the controls 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.

Syncfusion's Daniel Jebaraj says that this Volume 2 release marks the beginning of Syncfusion support for universal Windows apps. He hopes this will enable developers to create apps for the family of Windows devices. 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, rating control, radial menu, and hub tile; a masked edit control for WinRT; a schedule control for ASP.NET MVC; 3-D chart options, including scatter, line, and area charts, for all of the XAML platforms (WinRT, Windows Phone, WPF, and Silverlight).

In addition to these new controls, Syncfusion has 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.
