Attendees at Tech Ed Orlando this week were the first to get a sneak peek at ComponentOne’s new control suites for the Windows 8 Metro platform. Chris and I showed off the two studios at the Visual Studio 2012 Theater. And now we’re extending this sneak peek to our community.
The Controls You Know, Now in Metro
As with all of ComponentOne’s popular control suites, the idea is to add advanced functionality to existing controls and fill the gap with missing controls. For instance Microsoft did not put any date and time pickers or calendars into the XAML control toolbox. So we’ve developed a set of 6 unique and extremely useful input controls for DateTime selection, such as C1Calendar, C1DatePicker, C1TimeSelector and C1DateSelector.
With ComponentOne Gauges for Metro XAML you will get several different gauge controls for displaying bound numeric values. These gauges include C1Knob and C1RegionKnob which support user interaction like an oven timer.
And finally, the first public release of Studio for Metro XAML will include the immersive C1TileView control. Perfect for dashboards this ItemsControl takes advantage of the touch and animation experience of the Metro platform.
