Focused on developer productivity, Visual Studio 2010 has new tools for prototyping, modeling, and visual design as well as a single integrated development environment. ComponentOne Studio Enterprise 2010, a complete suite of custom controls for Windows, Web, and Mobile application development, now has support for the full .NET 4 Framework, all design-time wizards, and interactive editors.  

"ComponentOne's development products are built solely to enhance the developer experience for Microsoft's application platforms," said Sunny Wong, managing director at ComponentOne. "As such, our brand is and has been closely associated to that of Microsoft and the ISV community at large. Integration with Visual Studio 2010 is necessary, and leveraging its new capabilities is imperative, for ComponentOne to continue to be a leader and retain its high degree of brand awareness in the marketplace."

ComponentOne's Studio for ASP.NET AJAX 2010 release takes full advantage of the enhancements and powerful features in Visual Studio 2010. On the Windows Presentation Foundation side, by aligning the Expression Blend and Visual Studio design surface, developers can now rapidly create rich experiences with consistently styled controls from Studio for WPF. Both studios offer enhanced graphics performance and layout rendering, improved localization support, and superior interoperability.

ComponentOne's developer products extend the capabilities of Visual Studio 2010 by giving developers even more options for creating rich and interactive applications across all of the Windows and Web platforms. Using the new data visualization capabilities of .NET 4, ComponentOne has added new, styleable Gauge controls for WinForms and ASP.NET developers.

For Silverlight, ComponentOne has complemented the new design surface in Visual Studio 2010 with its unique ClearStyle technology. With ClearStyle, developers can visually style Silverlight controls using the designer and its Brush properties. This is a nice alternative to coding against XAML-based Style templates.

By taking full advantage of the Visual Studio 2010 Dynamic Data technology, the ComponentOne ASP.NET AJAX controls dramatically reduce the amount of code that needs to be written to handle data validation, data grid in-cell editing, and robust C.R.U.D. (Create, Read, Update, Delete) data support.

"We are pleased that ComponentOne, a Visual Studio Industry Partner, has been a long-standing provider of development tools supporting all of the major Microsoft application platforms since VB1, and is today simultaneously shipping support for Visual Studio 2010," said Jason Zander, general manager of the Visual Studio Developer Division at Microsoft Corp. "The continued success of its products within the developer community stems from working closely with Microsoft, delivering high-quality products, and tightly integrating with Microsoft Visual Studio 2010."

ComponentOne is exhibiting at booth #419 during the Microsoft Visual Studio Launch and Conference Expo being held April 12-14, 2010 at the Bellagio in Las Vegas, Nevada.
