Salem, NH (PRWEB) March 8, 2007
FOSS Software, an industry leader in developing graphical user interface components for desktop Windows applications, announced the release of version 1.1 of Elegant Ribbon, a set of .NET Windows Forms controls that allow developers to quickly and easily provide their applications with a new-generation user interface (UI) like that introduced in Microsoft Office 2007. Elegant Ribbon is written 100% managed C# and is CLS compliant.
The new version introduces a number of common controls: a combo box, an up-down control, a panel, horizontal and vertical scroll bars, and a label.
Of the distinguished features of Elegant Ribbon is its context-based architecture, where logic and appearance of a control depends on its context in a way that when the parent window changes, the control's look and behavior change too. For example, in design mode the developer can drag-and-drop a control from the ribbon to a form and back because in both cases the control is represented by the very same class. This approach does not restrict the developer in terms of polymorphism and conceptually more elegant than when different contexts require using different classes.
Right now, the company is offering Elegant Ribbon at a 50% discount.
A free fully functional evaluation version is available at http://www.prof-uis.com/download.aspx#ElegantRibbon.
FOSS Software has been successfully developing and offering software solutions and GUI libraries since 2000.
