"This year, we will deliver three volumes of NetAdvantage for .NET in order to bring to market components that leverage the VS2010 RTM," said Jason Beres, director of Product Management at Infragistics. "Our aggressive roadmap proves our commitment to increasing the breadth and depth of every toolset while maintaining the best speed and performance the market has to offer. Our lightning fast grids and advanced functionality within our controls enable developers to concentrate on the business logic of the application and rely on NetAdvantage to create the UI with the best user experience possible."

Windows Forms

With a smaller working set of .NET 4 assemblies, Infragistics has dramatically improved the size, portability and performance of Windows Forms applications.

Several new features have been added to this mature toolset such as WinGanttView(TM) providing 'drop in' sophisticated, fully stylable Microsoft Project functionally and Windows 7 Scenic Ribbon that updates legacy Windows Forms applications with the newest Windows 7 Styles. Also new, the WinMessageBoxManager(TM) and the WinActivityIndicator(TM) notify end users about application messages and long-running background processing.
