Web.UI 2009 for Silverlight from ComponentArt

In this blog post I’d like to mention a great suite of controls for Silverlight development, produced by ComponentArt. Such suite is named WebUI.2009 for Silverlight and is available from ComponentArt’s website as a free trial that you can download to take a tour of the features before purchasing.

Controls are very impressive. The first approaches is given by an all-in-one demo application which allows browsing and see in action all controls on different sides, such as the appearance and the API usage. The following figures show how you can easily browse samples and immediately get an idea of controls power:

One of the most interesting things is, in my opinion, the ability of choosing between Windows 7, Office 2007 and other graphical themes. Samples come with source code so beginning to use this UI framework for Silverlight is very straightforward. Other interesting controls are the ItemsFlow for dynamic image galleries, an advanced DataGrid, modal windows.

 

The free trial includes also two other interesting frameworks, respectively named SOA.UI and Web.UI for ASP.NET Ajax. The first one has the purpose of providing a unified framework of services for driving both Web.UI frameworks and the second one provides a set of controls for developing ASP.NET Ajax web applications.

 

I just tried the Silverlight framework, but I definitely recommend it for you to check it out.

The full list of controls and feature is available on ComponentArt website here.
