ComponentOne extends Windows 8 controls into suites
November 27, 2012 —
Saying that it is seeing as much interest in Windows 8 as it has in older platforms, Microsoft component solution provider ComponentOne has announced support for the new operating system in today’s release of its control suite, Studio Enterprise 2012 v3.
Chris Bannon, a product manager at ComponentOne (a division of GrapeCity), said the company had the desktop covered with its Windows Forms controls, and was now extending Windows 8 controls into its Studio for WinRT XAML and Studio for WinJS packages, which were announced at Microsoft’s BUILD conference earlier this month.
Lutz also pointed out that ComponentOne has created a number of controls for building Windows Store applications, which require touch and pen input as well as the app bar and charms for navigation. Among the new controls from ComponentOne are those for touch-first charts and gauges, and new high-performance ListBox controls that are available for all XAML platforms.
