East Windsor, N.J., & Elstree, United Kingdom – November 6, 2006 –
Infragistics, the world’s largest publisher of reusable presentation layer development tools for Windows Forms, ASP.NET, Tablet PC and Java, has today released the highly anticipated NetAdvantage for .NET 2006 Volume 3. NetAdvantage for .NET 2006 Volume 3 now provides developers with the ability to create ASP.NET and Windows Forms applications with the new look and feel of Microsoft Office® 2007, using Microsoft Visual Studio® 2005, 2003 or 2002.
Infragistics’ NetAdvantage for .NET user interface component toolset enables developers to easily deliver the very latest look and feel of Microsoft Office. Developers can build full contextual Windows Forms-based applications using the Office 2007-styled Ribbon, or create and style Office-type applications for both ASP.NET and Windows Forms with the three new color schemes (Blue, Black, and Silver). Additionally, the Infragistics Charting engine in NetAdvantage for .NET 2006 Volume 3 matches the new chart styles provided in Office 2007. "We are very excited about the opportunities developers have to create ultra-modern user interfaces with the Office 2007 Ribbon control, and all of the styling in the remaining Windows Forms controls that matches it,” explains Jason Beres, Infragistics’ Chief Technical Evangelist. “On the ASP.NET side, this is just another example of our commitment to bring rich-client capabilities to the web with AJAX features across the toolset. I really think developers will embrace the WebAsyncRefreshPanel™; you can modernize any application with AJAX without really updating any code."
“We have been using the Beta 3 version of the Infragistics NetAdvantage for .NET controls for the creation of our next generation premium product offering at Lipper and we are quite pleased with this release,” explains Bill Evjen, Technical Architect for Lipper, a wholly owned subsidiary of Reuters. “One of the many advantages it provided was that it gave us the means to centrally manage the look and feel of our entire application. We are under quite a tight deadline to get our product out to our customers and Infragistics has shaved a considerable amount of development time it would have taken if we didn’t use their product. Bravo Infragistics!”
NetAdvantage for .NET 2006 Volume 3 includes a number of powerful new features and functionalities, allowing developers to maximize usage of Infragistics’ Windows Forms and ASP.NET controls and components. Below is a partial list of the new controls and components that were added or enhanced for the 2006 Volume 3 release:
