Studio for LightSwitch
New product included in ComponentOne Ultimate:
 ComponentOne Studio for LightSwitch HTML is a set of jQuery Mobile controls, screen templates,
and design-time extensions for use with the LightSwitch HTML Client. Based on the popular Wijmo
widgets for jQuery UI and jQuery Mobile, Studio for LightSwitch HTML automates the generation of
JavaScript code for custom controls and integrates seamlessly with the LightSwitch design-time
environment to provide both ready-made screens and control-level extensibility. Individual controls
include grids, charts, calendars, gauges, and an image viewer.
Studio for WinForms
New Entity Framework and RIA Services DataSource Control
 ComponentOne Entity Framework DataSource™ adds ease-of-use and performance enhancements
to the ADO.NET Entity Framework and RIA Services. It improves and simplifies data binding with
these frameworks by solving common problems related to loading, paging, filtering, and saving
data. It also provides performance enhancements such as fast loading and transparent scrolling
over large data sets with Virtual Mode. Formerly part of ComponentOne Studio for Entity
Framework, all of these features are now available inside Studio for WinForms.
 SplitButton – Added a new C1SplitButton control to the C1Input group of controls.
GanttView – zoom in zoom out features
 TileControl – New animations and Drag and Drop support at run time.
Not only mimic the Modern UI but drag and drop your tiles from one location to another. Animate
content on tiles, slide pictures, text show live data and update it as and when required.
Studio for ASP.NET Wijmo
MVC 4 Mobile Support was added:
 New MVC 4 Mobile Project Templates (C# & VB)
Out of the box, the ASP.NET MVC 4 Mobile Wijmo application may look familiar to you. That's
because we based it on Microsoft's built-in template. We just modified the markup and CSS to our
liking and added Wijmo of course.
 MVC Mobile Scaffolding automatically enhanced with Wijmo
The great thing about Scaffolding is that it generates a starting point. So it will work right away, but
you can always customize it. The results are a solid starting point for a CRUD application. The
beauty of this approach is that you can extend it yourself.
Wijmo
AngularJS Support:
Wijmo supports AngularJS, a lightweight MVC JavaScript framework, allowing you to easily create and
maintain a dynamically changing UI. You can use AngularJS in addition to jQuery to enhance your pages
with an underlying data model.
