Infragistics Announces NetAdvantage Ultimate 2011 Volume 1 Focus on emerging technologies empowers development teams to create high-performance, full-featured UIs across platforms and devices
CRANBURY, N.J. and ELSTREE, England, June 9, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Infragistics, the experience design software company and a world leader in user interface (UI) development tools, announced today the availability of NetAdvantage® Ultimate 2011 Volume 1. With new UI toolsets, development teams have the flexibility to move between platforms, maintain existing applications and create new applications on the newest platforms and devices.
NetAdvantage Ultimate 11.1 marks the debut of NetAdvantage for jQuery, the client-side control toolset designed from the ground up to be lightweight, standards-based and capable of rich, rapid construction of user interfaces for public websites, tablets and desktop applications.
This release of NetAdvantage Ultimate brings enhanced interoperability with Microsoft Word, including a Word library, extending Infragistics' portfolio of libraries, controls and components available to help end users better visualize, report and share data.
"We've also introduced the 'IG Theme', a complete and consistent visual style that can be applied to all controls to make applications look modern and different from the traditional Microsoft Office brand," said Dean Guida, CEO of Infragistics. "With significant product enhancements and new UI toolsets, we empower our customers to develop UIs that match how their end users consume data – whether on the desktop, web or mobile platforms."
NetAdvantage for jQuery
Infragistics targets the 'modern' Web with its suite of lightweight, high-performance ASP.NET MVC and jQuery controls for the client-side that enable Web developers to fulfill the growing appetite for the best user experiences in Web browsers. NetAdvantage for jQuery is based on emerging Web technologies including CSS3, HTML5 and streaming video.
Microsoft Office 2010 integration is extended to the jQuery toolset enabling .NET developers to create and work with Word documents, Excel spreadsheets and PDF/XPS files from within their Web applications, provided the applications are jQuery Web applications running with .NET.
NetAdvantage for jQuery debuts with numerous client controls including the Grid to examine, filter, page and sort through tabular data, Data Source to handle the heavy lifting data operations, and Rating to harvest crowd opinion in social media applications.

Line of Business Controls
Infragistics continues to invest in and extend the capabilities in Windows Forms by adding new features such as Ribbon End User Customizations to give end users complete control over the applications' user experience.
New customer-requested features and functionality such as the HTML5 WebVideoPlayer™, WebUpload™ to upload single and multiple files, and Persistence Framework to serialize end user settings across all controls, further contribute to the breadth and depth of Infragistics' ASP.NET UI toolset. jQuery template support bolsters the dominance of the high performance ASP.NET AJAX data grids, trees and dropdown controls.
This release continues to see the benefit of the Unified XAML Product Strategy between WPF and Silverlight. With clear and consistent APIs that are easy to work with, and the quality and performance needed to create groundbreaking, innovative experiences, Infragistics introduces to both the WPF and Silverlight toolsets the ability to create Microsoft Office-centric applications, a calendar control that mimics the experience of the Windows 7 systems calendar, and new features and functionality to the XAML scheduling and grid controls.

WPF and Silverlight Data Visualization
Also part of the Unified XAML Product Strategy, NetAdvantage for WPF Data Visualization and NetAdvantage for Silverlight Data Visualization, easily deliver flexible, powerful end user experiences in Business Intelligence applications.
Unique to the data visualization suites is the Motion Framework™, which enables developers to show their application's end users the story of their data, as it changes over time, through an immersive and animated user experience.
Enhancements in the OLAP Pivot Grid include support for XMLA with Oracle databases enabling connections to more data, more easily. New to both data visualization suites are features such as the xamNetworkNode™, to create visual representations of network relationships that end users can easily manipulate, the xamOrgChart to develop hierarchical organization charts, and UI Automation enabling applications to provide and consume information about user interfaces providing for greater end user accessibility and enabling developers to build automated test scripts for the UI.
More functionality like the xamBarcodeReader™ and the xamPieChart™ round out these powerful UI data visualization suites.
Community Technology Previews (CTPs)
As part of 11.1, Infragistics introduces Community Technology Previews (CTPs): NetAdvantage for Windows Phone to create mobile applications full of vivid visualizations with touch and gesture support optimized for the mobile form factor and NetAdvantage Reporting, the industry's first native Silverlight and WPF reporting UI controls, to produce reports that are simple to create and easy to read.
Customers who subscribe to NetAdvantage Ultimate will automatically receive these new product releases, with expected availability in Q3 2011.
