ComponentOne has expanded its suite of controls for Windows, web, and mobile application development with its first release of 2011, ComponentOne Studio Enterprise 2011 v1. A key feature of the 2011 v1 release is the addition of more advanced features in charting controls.
The chart enhancements enable developers working with .NET charts to quickly render line and scatter plots using low-level graphics routines, easily position elements on the chart with new Layer collection, and stack multiple plot areas horizontally and vertically. The enhanced chart controls work across all .NET platforms: Windows Forms, Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF), ASP.NET, Silverlight, .NET Compact Framework, and ActiveX applications.
"Charts are an integral part of any business application," said Greg Lutz, product manager at ComponentOne. "ComponentOne has a history of delivering the most advanced charting controls, and I'm particularly excited about the powerful rendering, rich styling elements, animations, and data-binding capabilities added to the WPF and Silverlight charts," he said.
Additionally, ComponentOne has added Microsoft Excel–like filtering to its FlexGrid control for Silverlight and WPF. The FlexGrid control now allows users to either set the filter by selecting values that should be displayed or by specifying conditions that must be met by the values in the column.
ComponentOne has added four new controls to its WPF control set: C1RichTextBox (text editor), C1SpellChecker, C1ReportViewer and C1Carousel. ComponentOne has also added three new Windows Forms controls and major enhancements to existing controls, such as grouping functionality added to Scheduler for Windows Forms and multi-colored contextual tabs added to Ribbon for Windows Forms.
