Developers rely on DevExpress to provide the controls they need to build stunning desktop, Web and mobile apps. The newly released DevExpress Universal 14.1 adds an HTML5 client-side data grid control, new Windows Forms (WinForms) Outlook-style controls, new chart types, and the beta version of an ASP.NET report designer. There are also new demos showing developers how to use the new controls and how to build apps with the same look and feel whether they’re using WinForms, ASP.NET or Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF).
“No matter which platform you choose, we have controls for it and we show you how to use them,” said DevExpress CTO Julian Bucknall. “If you’re using two or more platforms and you have to create the same application with the same UI on all, we can help you do that as well.”
New Controls and Control Enhancements
As always, DevExpress continues to add functionality to the control sets for each platform, giving developers even more ways to build fluid and responsive applications that deliver exceptional user experiences.
WinForms Outlook-Style Navigation Controls. DevExpress extended the capabilities of its WinForms Navigation components to fully support the Outlook 2013 user experience. The navigation links can be displayed at the bottom of the page so developers can use the space within the primary app container for module-specific functionality.
Unlike ASP.NET grids, it is a pure client-side grid.
