Though the 64-bit controls are installed with our Studio for ActiveX installer, many of our customers have asked us queries on how to manually register our 64-bit ActiveX controls in their 64-bit machines.
One of the most popular features that MS came out with in Visual Studio 2010 was automated test scripts using UICoder. That it is getting popular day by day would be an understatement, and though it is yet a long way to go for it to eventually become a standard tool in the field of Automation Testing, it is by far one of the most sought after tools already.
C1Gauge (SL and WPF) provides pointers to display values in a range. You may want to change the value by dragging the pointer to a specified value, just like a simple slider control behaves.

When any cell formatting is applied on VsFlexGrid 8.0, then on selecting the row, the formatting is not shown.
C1Editor is a control that works on the same line as MS word and MS FrontPage. One can search the word by using the find feature of the same. But there might be certain situations when the user wants to highlight all the occurrences of the searched word in the C1Editor. This is similar to the function performed by Google toolbar wherein you search for a topic, navigate to a matching page and clicking on the google toolbar highlight button adds a yellow highlight to all the instances of the search text that appear in the page.
Stacking plot areas within a chart can be a useful way to better analyze the data points. Rather than having many data series overlapped you can increase readability by moving some series to an adjacent plot area. This can all be achieved using the advanced capabilities of the ComponentOne Chart for XAML.
Wrapper classes can be avoided if you use an #Import statement. In VS.NET, the wrapper classes that are generated for ActiveX controls in vC++ are not very good. The wrappers do not contain all properties, so it is recommended that for VS.NET you either use wrappers generated in vC++ 6 or use the #Import statement. The #Import statement can also be used in vC++ 6 to avoid wrappers. The instructions below will work in both vC++ 6 and all versions of vC++ .NET.
C1TrueDbGrid data can be exported as an Excel file using ExportToExcel() method. However, when the C1TrueDbGrid with grouped columns is exported to a spreadsheet, the group indentation is not preserved and all the columns appear together.

You can easily accomplish this with just as little as 4-5 lines of code using jQuery.
Silverlight has been a revolution when it comes to the flexibility of designing and changing the UI of an application. Silverlight suite from ComponentOne leverages on this advantage to provide further customization options to its users.
Silverlight 5 has introduced a lot of new features and one of them is the ability to set binding on Style Setters. This great feature was heavily missing from the earlier Silverlight version. The functionality is pretty useful and is extensively used in WPF applications.

The scenario is simple: a user wants to customize the way the FlexGrid displays information based on its state. For instance, when a row is collapsed it should display as one style, and when it’s expanded it should display as another style. How can you achieve this type of logic in the XAML world while still obeying the laws of MVVM? The answer is very simple: use a Cell Factory.
