Software Documentation and Agile

Developing documentation (both end-user and internal) in an Agile software development environment can present a few challenges, but overall presents many opportunities for technical communicators.

Creating custom columns in C1DataGrid for Silverlight

ComponentOne DataGrid for Silverlight supports creating specific behavior columns. For example you can create a Hyperlink column, a GIF column, a Rich Text column, and so on.

What’s New: Docking Controls for WPF

In 2009 v3, we here at ComponentOne released a set of docking controls for Silverlight. With docking controls you can create an MDI application where users can dock, undock, and float various windows within the application. This type of UI is common in many applications, such as Adobe Photoshop and Microsoft Visual Studio. Now in 2010 we have these exact same, fully compatible controls for WPF. DockControl for WPF includes several new controls for your WPF toolbox:

I have to admit, this idea all came from the awesome Chinook sample database on CodePlex. It has to be one of the coolest little sample databases I have seen. It has a decent data model, relationship mappings, and plenty of data. What else could a guy ask for, right (well, maybe some graphics)? The coolest thing about the DB is that it is generated from an actual iTunes library (XML file) and can be deployed on multiple database platforms like SQL, MySQL, Oracle, etc.

What's New: Gauges for WinForms

New in 2010, ComponentOne Gauges for WinForms provides the flexibility to create simple, practical gauges that get the job done while also supplying all of the advanced features to create the most eye-catching, sophisticated and professional looking gauges imaginable.

What's New: RDL Reporting Definition Support

In 2010 v1, ComponentOne added preliminary support for the Microsoft Reporting Services (RDL) to the C1PrintDocument component. Now it's so easy to display your RDL reports in your WinForms applications and get all of the extra features that come with ComponentOne Reports for WinForms, as well as other development platforms which support ComponentOne reports such as ASP.NET, WPF and soon Silverlight!

What’s New: Chart Aggregates

The ComponentOne Chart for WPF and Silverlight has a new Aggregate feature which performs instant aggregation on the plotted data. By simply setting one property we can change the chart's view to calculate and display an aggregation, such as total count, average, sum and standard deviation.

Announcing the A2 Framework

It is only fitting that I am at MIX in Vegas while writing this announcement. There have been some incredible announcements made here in Las Vegas. The next web is fast approaching as Microsoft is really reinventing their web development platform for the future. So now for ComponentOne's big MIX unveiling...

Visual Studio 2010 Compatibility

Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 is coming soon and developers are starting to adopt this new environment. There were many changes to Visual Studio 2010 that required changes to add-ons and components that you used in Visual Studio 2008. With the first Studio Enterprise 2010 release, ComponentOne has added support for most of the new features in Visual Studio. For Studio for WinForms controls, this includes the .NET 4.0 Framework as well as the new design surface; however, the new Client Profile is not supported (yet).
