Why Choose ComponentOne Studio for Windows Phone?

1- Consistent Metro UI Design

Studio for Windows Phone supports the Metro UI design and interaction guidelines specified by Microsoft. By default, each control supports a Metro look and automatically inherits the dark or light theme set by the user. Be confident that your apps will look consistent on your users’ phones.

2- Stunning Data Visualization

Your charting apps are just a few clicks away with Chart for Windows Phone offering over 30 chart types, user interaction, and a wide range of color palettes. Gauges for Windows Phone, with a variety of designs and shapes, give you dashboard-style visualization perfect for the mobile platform. If you need to visualize your data geographically, Maps for Windows Phone does the job.

3- Edit Tabular Data

Only with the legendary FlexGrid for Windows Phone can you get tabular data editing on the Windows Phone. Display data records across columns and down rows with this simple, yet powerful grid control. Plus, unlock advanced features such as sorting, cell merging, and even editing with a platform-specific UI.

4- Gesture Support

Touch gestures for zooming, panning, scrolling, and selection are included with Studio for Windows Phone. Touch gesture support ensures that you deliver compelling, interactive applications to your end users.

5- ClearStyle Technology for XAML Styling

ClearStyle Technology is our new paradigm to XAML control styling. ClearStyle allows developers to easily change control colors without having to modify control templates. By just setting a few brush properties in Visual Studio 2010 you can quickly give a unique look to the control without having to work in Expression Blend or hire a professional designer.

6- XAML or Code

Customize the controls in your preferred method: XAML, C# or VB.NET code-behind, or both. Studio for Windows Phone controls support complete XAML markup for most features and dependency properties for data-binding in MVVM (Model-View-ViewModel) designed applications.
