Infragistics Updates WinForms/ASP.NET Components

Tools vendor Infragistics today released NetAdvantage for .NET 2007 Volume 2, its latest set of presentation components for Windows Forms and ASP.NET.

The toolset includes a new gauge control, available for both WinForms and ASP.NET that adds business intelligence functionality to the product. The component can be used to make radial, linear or digital-style controls for dashboards and other applications.

A beta version of the gauge shipped in the tool suite’s Vol. 1 release. Since then, Infragistics "added a bunch more styles and did some work as to the design time experience," says Andrew Flick, Infragistics product manager for rich clients.

The gauge tool is the company's first foray into such components. "Gauges are one of the things that people would go out and buy, and we want to be the single tool vendor for everybody," Flick says, adding that the company is happy with its results. "In comparison [to established gauge providers such as Dundas] I think we’ve got a very nice gauge. … As far as meeting use cases, it’s there and beyond."

Another feature in the ASP.NET suite focuses on search engine optimization. "It makes it easier for Web crawlers to scrape through the components," Flick says.

Now included among the WinForms components is a PDF/XPS document export feature that can be used to generate reports; and improved support for reading and exporting Excel files.

Pricing for the tools begins at $795.
