Updating the Look of WinForms Controls

The ComponentOne teams continue to deliver more styling options and ready-to-use themes. We don't just update the color scheme; we also update layout and behavioral elements so your full application keeps to current trends. Let’s see we're including into our upcoming 2017 v3 release, available on November 15.

New Themes Available in WPF Edition: Cosmopolitan and Office

Beautify and modernize your WPF apps with the popular Cosmopolitan and Office 2013 themes, now available in Themes for WPF. The themes work in all standard Microsoft controls, so you no longer have to sacrifice aesthetics to get a sleek, clean look in your WPF apps.

C1Themes and Message Boxes

In the third trimester release of Component One Studio for WinForms in 2013, ComponentOne Themes for WinForms made their debut, offering WinForms developers the opportunity to offer their end users a little more variety when it came to styling their application’s look and feel.

What's New for WinForms 2014v1?

"New" is a relative term. For someone who has no prior experience of blazing fast performance, stable code, ease of use and reliability etc., the complete Studio For WinForms, is a new experience. For the rest of us, who have benefited with ComponentOne Studios, "New" means out of the box, "New"  means taking something good and making it better.

Feeling colorful? Try out the new ComponentOne Themes for WinForms

Building a good application is so much like building a monument. Of course you  can always build in any which way you like, but those monuments which stand the test of time are, more often than not, built with a lot of effort and hard work. They need a solid foundation, good design, and above all, a very basic need for them to be magnificent, their looks.

What's New in WPF and Silverlight 2013 v3

Studio Enterprise 2013 v3 is now available just one day after the release of Visual Studio 2013. Normally each release I post about what's new in all of the ComponentOne XAML studios in one post but this time i'm splitting out WinRT XAML from Silverlight and WPF because there's too much to mention for each studio. Studio for WinRT XAML continues to expand greatly (see my next post about that), while WPF and Silverlight have some exciting new stuff that's exclusive to these platforms such as themes and 3D charts. Let's run through what you'll find new inside Studio for WPF and Silverlight this release.

HTML5 Everywhere : Part 1 Wijmo from scratch

HTML5 is really everywhere, isn’t it? Welcome to my new multipart blog on HTML5 development. Did you ever wonder why every session at a code camp on HTML5/JavaScript/jQuery is packed ? I did, until I sat in on Josh Broton’s session at the Iowa Code Camp last year. He made it clear thru surveys and poll data, you will loose business if your site does not have a responsive web design. You could stand to loose a staggering 60% of your sales if your site is not responsive to mobile devices, tables, laptops, desktops and everything in between. Think about it…. I am sitting on my couch and need to look something up on the internet. My laptop in ten feet away, but instead of getting up and going to my laptop, I pull my Phone 8 out of my pocket and look it up on that device. The site better run good on my phone or I am off to another site, perhaps a competitor. Is your head nodding? Many nod in my seminars, I can tell you that much.
