Gustavo Eydelsteyn Full Speed Ahead with WPF Controls
Gustavo Eydelsteyn, Co-founder

Over the past year we've been very aggressive with Silverlight research and development, producing the only award-winning Silverlight suite on the market with over 30 controls, 40 samples with source code, and the most active community forum. As we continue to add to our Silverlight portfolio, we are also cranking out WPF controls in full force.

We are committed to making our WPF suite, which currently includes grid, chart, schedule, and report controls, match the Silverlight suite. By using an internal Framework, we have been able to get the same functionality in our WPF controls that you find in our Silverlight controls. This way, you can produce desktop and Web applications and eliminate the learning curve between platforms. You can find the first set of our new WPF controls in our next release, which is set for mid-July. Until then, I encourage you to download Studio for Silverlight if you have not already done so. You won't want to miss out on the rich presentation and functionality that is here with Silverlight and just around the corner with WPF.

Greg Lutz, Junior Web Developer

Here at ComponentOne, we get asked all the time if our ASP.NET grids support editing data like a spreadsheet or like a WinForms grid control. In other words, developers want to know if end-users can edit all cells in all rows of the grid at once, rather than the clunky, one row at a time, editing method typically seen in ASP.NET grids.
In this article I will go over an easy to understand approach to achieving this type of functionality using ComponentOne GridView for ASP.NET (C1GridView).

ComponentOne XapOptimizer: Just Released

Looking for a way to increase the start-up time and reduce network traffic with your Silverlight application? Then, you have to try our newly released ComponentOne XapOptimizer™. This stand-alone utility processes your Silverlight applications (XAP files) and generates an optimized Silverlight application 30-70% smaller than the original XAP file size without any loss in functionality.

  • Integrate XapOptimizer as part of the build process in Microsoft Visual Studio to automatically optimize your XAP files
  • Obfuscate your code
  • Use XapOptimizer with any Silverlight assembly including third party components
Download your free XapOptimizer trial.

ComponentOne LiveLinq: Just Released

Now you can make LINQ faster and get live views with ComponentOne LiveLinq™. This unique class library augments the functionality of LINQ using indexing and other optimizations to speed up LINQ queries in memory. And with live view, your LINQ query result is kept up-to-date without re-populating it every time its base data changes.

Download your free LiveLinq trial.
