"This year, we will deliver three volumes of NetAdvantage for .NET in order to bring to market components that leverage the VS2010 RTM," said Jason Beres, director of Product Management at Infragistics. "Our aggressive roadmap proves our commitment to increasing the breadth and depth of every toolset while maintaining the best speed and performance the market has to offer. Our lightning fast grids and advanced functionality within our controls enable developers to concentrate on the business logic of the application and rely on NetAdvantage to create the UI with the best user experience possible."
With VS2010 support, Infragistics delivers even more compelling experiences with Windows Forms including in-process side-by-side hosting, multi-touch support for default gestures in Windows 7 and Windows 7 support. With .NET 4 Client Profile support, developers can build NetAdvantage Windows Forms-powered applications using the recommended .NET 4 Client Profile build target in VS2010. With a smaller working set of .NET 4 assemblies, Infragistics has dramatically improved the size, portability and performance of Windows Forms applications.
Several new features have been added to this mature toolset such as WinGanttView™ providing 'drop in' sophisticated, fully stylable Microsoft Project functionally and Windows 7 Scenic Ribbon that updates legacy Windows Forms applications with the newest Windows 7 Styles. Also new, the WinMessageBoxManager™ and the WinActivityIndicator™ notify end users about application messages and long-running background processing.
