Despite some compatibility issues, it is possible to share code across all 3 platforms in the XAML realm: WPF, Silverlight and Windows Phone. This talk covers 10 tips for multi-targeting which will help prepare you for Windows 8 and WinRT opportunities. I debuted this talk at ComponentOne's Tech Connection Live! Twin Cities.
As we continue the evolution of our web stack here at Component One, we find ourselves exploring more and more controls and finding ways to improve them. The new Studio for ASP.NET Wijmo keeps up with this trend with the new and improved C1SuperPanel control. The ASP.NET AJAX's successor is not only more powerful, it also has a robust set of theming options with themeroller support. This post is meant to guide you through the process of migrating your ASP.NET AJAX controls to the new ASP.NET Wijmo controls and also give you an idea of how the control has evolved.
This article is meant to be a guide to assist in the migration of the ASP.NEt AJAX C1Calendar control to the lates WIjmo controls. One of the staple controls of our ASP.NET web stack is the C1Calendar control that is available in our Studio for ASP.NET AJAX control suite. This control is a very robust and intuitive control which gives you several customization options such as theming and culture settings. We have improved upon this control with a brand new C1Calendar control included in the totally redesigned Studio for ASP.NET Wijmo. The new control is built upon a foundation of AJAX, CSS3, HTML5 and JQuery. Basically the new C1Calendar control is built for whatever the future of the web holds. The new control offers CSS support which allows you to use CSS to customize the control to be uniform with your current business standards. A list of some of the new and exciting features of this control can be found here.
Wijmo might be something you have been learning more about if you have been using our ASP.Net Ajax controls. ASP.Net Wijmo is our new webstack for ComponentOne. In the spotlight now is ComponentOne's ToolTip. If you have used the older control (ASP.Net Ajax ToolTip) then you will know of some of the cool features that will come packaged. The Wijmo control features:
Today at lunch I gave an online presentation that talked about data access techniques on the Windows Phone 7. Data, whether in the cloud, on your company’s server, or locally on the phone, will be a key ingredient in your Windows Phone application. In this session I went over the many ways you can access data including Web services and isolated storage/local database. I also demonstrated some of the unique input sources to the phone: sensors and GPS.
The WPF CarouselPanel is a virtualizing panel control that arranges child elements along an arbitrary 3D path. We can use C1CarouselPanel with any items control to turn a flat list of items into a virtualizing carousel with true 3D perspectives and scrolling animation.
Thanks to everyone who attended, it was a great day. Houston is a fun city, Fran and I enjoyed the hospitality very much. There were over 900 attendees, so we were packed at the table all day long. Congrats to Michael and the rest of the organizing team, it went very smoothly, and I hope you got a few days' rest before you start planning next year's event.
This article describes how you can use C1FlexGrid to display and edit data from a local database in your Widows Phone app. With Windows Phone OS 7.1, you can store relational data in a local database that resides in the app’s isolated storage container. For this sample application, we will create a basic single-page to-do list as described here: How to: Create a Basic Local Database Application for Windows Phone.
Thank you for your interest in the Tech Connection Live! Twin Cities event. Below you'll find the session details and information on registering. Registration will begin at 8:00 am CST and lunch will be served at noon.
I am happy to announce that our latest set of dev-tools built on the Microsoft ADO.NET Entity Framework has a release date, price and package bundling all set. A release candidate is also available today for Studio for Entity Framework. The official release is set for November 16th, which is also our Studio Enterprise 2011 v3 release date. That fits well with the plan to include Studio for Entity Framework alongside the 8 other dev-tool suites in Studio Enterprise. That means anyone with a valid Studio Enterprise subscription for v3 will be entitled to this new product. It will also have the same base price as other studios, $895.00 USD per developer license, should you not want everything that comes inside Studio Enterprise.
A couple months ago at DevLink, I did an interview with David Giard for his show “Technology and Friends”. Since I was there talking about jQuery Mobile for the conference, I thought it was appropriate that I talk about jQuery Mobile with David. I think I was even the first show to have a demo (David will have to correct me)!
Our customers have asked us how to show multiple columns of the bound data source in the single tooltip for bound Wijmo Charts. So this blog post is for all those customers.
If you’re in the Northern Virginia area this weekend (Oct 1st), you should come out to NoVA Code Camp! I’m going to be giving two presentations:
