Infragistics Ships Microsoft 'Metro'-Compliant GUI Tool

Infragistics has released NetAdvantage for Windows Phone 2011 Volume 1. The new release targets the Windows Phone development market with a user interface development tool that supports touch- and gesture-based input.

Infragistics mobile UI toolset aligns with the Metro guidelines set forth by Microsoft for the Windows Phone experience and includes the appropriate gesture support for multi-touch experience like Pinch, Drag, and Tap & Hold, as well as support for vertical and horizontal orientation.

Providing what the company calls "vibrant visualizations" optimized for the mobile form factor, this first release of NetAdvantage for Windows Phone supports the new "IG Theme", an Infragistics look-and-feel visual theme, with more than a dozen data visualization controls such as the Data Chart, Barcode, and Gauges that can be the showcase-elements of an applications' navigation or interactive experience.

"NetAdvantage for Windows Phone is about enabling developers to quickly build interactive and engaging dashboards and interactions that will wow their customers," said Dean Guida, CEO of Infragistics. "With key controls from our Data Visualization suites, paired with our mobile financial charting and UI components, developers can quickly create mobile applications that deliver a quality experience."
