Infragistics Releases CTP UI Components for Microsoft Silverlight Beta 2

Infragistics Enables Data Visualization for Silverlight Line of Business Application Development

Infragistics announced the availability of two Community Technology Preview (CTP) User Interface (UI) components for Microsoft Silverlight beta 2. With the release of chart and gauge components for Silverlight beta 2, Infragistics demonstrates it can create innovative user experiences for new, emerging technology.

Developers can download the CTPs now at www.infragistics.com/silverlight.

"One of the key ways in which Silverlight will advance web application development will be with data visualization," said Brian Goldfarb, group product manager at Microsoft. "With these two CTP controls, Infragistics exemplifies how data visualization can create an immersive user experience in rich interactive applications with Silverlight."

Infragistics chart and gauge controls for Silverlight enable developers to turn data into information dashboards. The chart control includes 28 chart types that cover the most common and challenging business scenarios such as forecasting, trend analysis and reporting. Developers can style the charts using data templates to give them a professionally designed appearance that impresses as it informs. Gauges are also an important element in data visualization for panel-like display of data. The gauge CTP enables developers to design dashboard-driven applications and display data in new, intuitive ways.

"Infragistics empowers developers to build rich user experiences across multiple platforms and we're extending that to Silverlight," said Dean Guida, president and CEO of Infragistics. "That's why enabling data visualization for line of business applications is our goal with our tools for Silverlight."
