SOMERSET, UK ComponentOne Europe today announces that its flagship product, ComponentOne Studio Enterprise, supports Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 and the Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5. Continuing a ComponentOne tradition since 1991, our components and technologies are updated to work with the latest version of Visual Studio, simultaneously with Microsofts release. The ComponentOne Studio for WinForms, ASP.NET, and WPF are fully compatible with both Visual Studio 2005 and Visual Studio 2008, stated Chris Geiger, Managing Director of ComponentOne Europe.
ComponentOne complements Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 by providing high quality, customisable rich user interfaces enabling developers to take full advantage of the 2007 Microsoft Office system and the Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5.
Microsoft is excited about ComponentOnes support for Visual Studio 2008 and the .NET Framework 3.5, said Brian Goldfarb, group product manager in the Developer Platform & Tools Team at Microsoft Corp. This suite of rich presentation controls provides a more seamless design-time experience in both Visual Studio 2008 and Expression Blend.
Many of the design goals associated with Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 are immersed in ComponentOne Studio for ASP.NET and WinForms. ComponentOne supports Windows Vista themes, the 2007 Microsoft Office system themes, and the Open XML specification.
.NET Framework 3.5 provides many new features including language-integrated query (LINQ). All existing ComponentOne Studio Enterprise data-aware components are able to automatically bind directly to the results of a LINQ query and provide a visual presentation of the results. These three product enhancements further exemplify our commitment to Microsoft Visual Studio and Microsofts drive to solve software development challenges, stated Catherine Geiger, Sales Manager ComponentOne Europe.
ComponentOne supports Windows Presentation Foundation by taking advantage of the capabilities of todays modern graphics hardware. ComponentOne Studio for WPF is a suite of WPF components including WPF Grid, WPF Chart, and WPF Schedule. These components give you complete control of the appearance and are customizable in XAML without writing code.
ComponentOne Studio Enterprise 2008 will include five studios in one, with Studio for ASP.NET, Studio for WinForms, Studio for WPF, Studio for ActiveX, and Studio for Mobile.
In addition, ComponentOne Studio Enterprise 2008 will include an add-in called ComponentOne IntelliSpell, an invaluable spellchecker for Visual Studio 2005 and Visual Studio 2008.
