Tie your .NET Apps in Ribbons

Infragistics demonstrates new developer tool to create Office 2007-style applications.

At the TechEd Developers conference in Barcelona, the component builder Infragistics demonstrated its NetAdvantage suite for .NET 2006 Volume 3.

Newly released this week, this already popular set of user interface components for Windows Forms and ASP.NET now gives developers the ability to create applications with the look and feel of Microsoft Office 2007. Infragistics NetAdvantage controls will integrate to projects in Visual Studio 2002, 2003 and 2005.

All the standard Infragistics UI controls get new colour schemes to match Office 2007, the charting component can match the chart styles in Excel 2007 and you can now add Office 2007 style Ribbon controls to your Windows Forms applications.

Developers can use the Ribbon control to define tabs, groups, commands and an application menu for file operations such as printing and publishing. Galleries of choices can be shown with rich graphics and every command can show large tooltips with graphics, making your application even easier to learn and use.

All the Net Advantage controls can be painted with the Office 2007 colour scheme or any custom Colour scheme using the Application Stylist. This allows a designer to apply a consistent look and feel to all the controls on all the forms in an application. Indeed, the style set file created by the Application Stylist can be shared across a suite of applications to ensure consistency across the suite.
