The Industry’s Only Library of Plug-in Widgets for Microsoft’s LightSwitch HTML Client
PITTSBURGH, PA – July 30, 2013 – ComponentOne a division of GrapeCity, the largest component solution provider in the Microsoft Visual Studio Partner Ecosystem, has released ComponentOne Studio for LightSwitch HTML. Studio for LightSwitch HTML is a set of jQuery Mobile controls, screen templates, and design-time extensions for use with Microsoft’s LightSwitch HTML client.
In late summer of 2011, Microsoft released the first version of Visual Studio LightSwitch, offering its users a way to create high-quality business applications for the desktop and the cloud with minimal code. At the same time, ComponentOne introduced its first commercial LightSwitch extension, OLAP for LightSwitch, which gave users the ability to snap in pivoting grids and charts without a single line of code. ComponentOne has since created five more extensions and has packaged them into its Studio for LightSwitch product, a suite that has quickly become the industry standard tool set for LightSwitch users.
Due to popular demand, Microsoft recently unveiled the LightSwitch HTML client designed for use on mobile and touch-enabled devices. ComponentOne quickly followed suit with its new offering, Studio for LightSwitch HTML.
When looking at the list of controls included in Studio for LightSwitch HTML, users will find a wide range of controls from grids and charts to gauges and even an events calendar. Michael Washington, author of Creating Web Pages Using the LightSwitch HTML Client: The LightSwitch Help Website, 2013 said that “The ComponentOne HTML Grid control fills a vital missing piece when creating line of business applications."
Washington went on to state that, “The functionality provided by the Event Calendar control is simply amazing. This is an incredible product by ComponentOne that is easy to use and produces the professional result we all have been looking for. What ComponentOne has accomplished with these plug-ins finally demonstrates what an incredible product that the Microsoft Visual Studio LightSwitch HTML client is," said Washington.
The company offers no-charge, 30-day trials of Studio for LightSwitch, which includes Studio for LightSwitch HTML, at grapecity.com/download/. Online visitors may also access tutorials, forums, documentation, and videos as part of the ComponentOne experience.
