PITTSBURGH, April 9, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- ComponentOne, a division of GrapeCity, the largest component solution provider in the Microsoft Visual Studio Partner Ecosystem, is the recipient of the Jolt Productivity Award in the Libraries category http://www.drdobbs.com/240151743. ComponentOne was honored by Dr. Dobb's for the results of the company's efforts shown in the area of quality, along with the breadth of the company's offerings.
"ComponentOne has been a long-time vendor in the third-party tool and SDK market for Windows developers," said Andrew Binstock, editor in chief at Dr. Dobb's. "ComponentOne is a perpetual finalist in this (and other) categories due to the quality of implementation of its offerings," said Binstock.
Binstock also commented that, "In addition to these controls, the Ultimate edition includes OLAP data analysis tools. These provide functionality equivalent to Excel pivot tables and pivot charts, which enable you to deliver apps that include analysis in the data presentation. Two utilities round out the package: DocToHelp, which takes documents written in Microsoft Word, HTML, or WinHelp and transforms them into PDF, ePub, SharePoint Wiki markup, WinHelp, or other formats. The other utility is DemoWorks, which enables you to capture screens (either static or video) and save them as Flash, WMV, animated GIF, AVI, or an executable file. The built-in editor enables frame by frame editing, and narration can be added."
"To be selected as a winner from over 30 nominations is truly an honor," said Greg Lutz, product manager at ComponentOne. "With an ever changing technology landscape, we are continually expanding and improving the tools that developers need to save them time and resources. This year will be no exception as we embark on adding more value to our .NET control suites for Windows, Web and XAML developers," said Lutz.
The company offers no-charge, 30-day trials of ComponentOne Ultimate and each of its component suites, which may be downloaded at http://www.componentone.com/Downloads/. Online visitors may also access tutorials, forums, documentation, and diagrams as part of the ComponentOne experience.
