Infragistics Announces NetAdvantage for .NET 2009 Volume 1

Infragistics has announced a new release of its NetAdvantage for .NET 2009 Volume 1 toolset. NetAdvantage for .NET provides user interface (UI) controls for rapidly building high-fidelity, full-featured UIs for ASP.NET, WPF, Windows Forms and Silverlight.

ASP.NET support includes ASP.NET AJAX controls for building Web 2.0 Rich Internet Applications (RIAs). Other tools supporting ASP.NET include:

  • The WebDataGrid Column Moving feature lets users reorder columns to customize views. The new lightweight WebDropDown can be used as an editor for the WebDataGrid.
  • New controls include WebDataTree, WebDataMenu, and WebProgressBar that have advanced functionality such as drag-and-drop capabilities, drop down menus, CSS support, and one-setting global styling.
  • Enhancements in the Application Styling Framework enable the styling of controls and centralized management of CSS styles easier than ever.

NetAdvantage's WPF components support end-to-end development scenarios from the simplest applications to the most sophisticated. In the 2009 Volume 1 release, Infragistics has enhanced functionality in the xamDataGrid and xamDataPresenter Grid View while improving performance leading to WPF controls that are flexible, robust and highly-configurable.

In addition to enhancing the Windows Forms WinGrid to make seamless interfacing with Microsoft Excel easier, Infragistics has added depth to several controls including WinCombo, WinListView, and WinSchedule, and has introduced WinPanel to the toolset.

With the release of Infragistics CTP controls for Silverlight, developers can take Line of Business applications to the next level with advanced technology now by combining next-generation Silverlight 3 capabilities with familiar UI patterns. Several CTP controls including the xamWebGrid, xamWebTree, xamWebOutlookBar are available free now.
