ComponentOne’s Studio Enterprise for Microsoft Visual Studio 2005 is a large, integrated suite of components aimed at making it easier to create sophisticated .NET applications.

This new release includes over 25 products designed specifically for and compiled natively in .NET 2.0 for Visual Studio 2005. The components help with all areas of development including the data reporting and transformation layers, in addition top the presentation layers.

ComponentOne Chart for .NET and True DBGrid for .NET have been updated with designers and wizards allowing developers to visually access complex functionality and quickly integrate the features into applications. The new designers reduce the time needed to learn component object models, and allow developers to focus on application development, putting the power of the components at their fingertips.

The new Visual Studio 2005 Windows Forms features including Smart Tags, Snap Lines, data binding, GDI+ text, and Managed Themes have been integrated into the components.

The new .NET Framework 2.0 Web Forms components fully support ASP.NET 2.0 features, including Smart Tags, data binding, resourced-based scripts and images, and ASP.NET 2.0 Themes.

New products include:

  • ADO.NET DataExtender: an extension for ADO.NET 2.0 that simplifies data modelling and programming for Windows Forms applications.
  • Preview for .NET: a completely re-engineered version that adds printing and print preview capabilities to Windows Forms applications. It features an enhanced object model, a more robust and modular design, improved performance, and more.
  • WebMenus and WebBars for ASP.NET: a new version of the existing suite of user-interface and navigational tools. This new version adds new C1WebTreeView and C1WebTabStrip components, functionality not available in-the-box with Visual Studio 2005, plus other enhancements improving the design-time experience.
Studio Enterprise subscribers receive the full suite of components built on the Microsoft .NET Framework 1.1, as well as a full suite of the new components compiled natively for the .NET Framework 2.0 and Visual Studio 2005.
