ActiveX Edition

FlexGrid and VSVIEW are great tools. We use them intensively in our development.

Amnon Rapoport CEO Planium Software

We purchased VSFlexGrid Pro because it included an API, which enabled quick development, automatic printing, and lots of options for formatting and displaying. It was also easy to use and helped to satisfy the requirements of the client, all for a very affordable price.

Brian Katz Owner Useful Engineering

ComponentOne VSVIEW Classic Edition and ComponentOne VSFlexGrid Pro were used in Building Works because both components were easy to use, well documented with sample code and help files, and great time savers when implementing complex feature sets.

Jim Durham Owner Vertaco

We selected ComponentOne products for ease-of-use and fast integration into the application development cycle. The products specifically provide bound ActiveX controls for database interaction, as well as reports and presentation tools, plus they’re all very simple to use, and offer feature rich functionality. I have been able to automate the creation of 1,000’s of user accounts quickly, reliably and with a measurable consistency... More...

Thanks for the follow-up. I hope to speak with you more as we look at upgrading many of our components and techniques to VB.NET.

Louis Orlando Vice President Swearingen Software Inc.

... none of the components even came close to providing the level of programmability and customization that ComponentOne’s did, let alone documentation. It was then an easy decision to go with ComponentOne. More...

James Summerlin

Easier to use right off the bat. I liked using the Scheduler for drag-and-drop capability.

Michelle Gibson Software Engineer

The only .NET control tools we trust. They scale well and meet all the needs of our diverse development needs (Web, WinForms, etc.). We have retired all other vendors as a result.

By working together, ComponentOne and Esri can provide businesses with the ability to improve analysis and decision-making by integrating geographic information into their existing workflows.

Josh Lewis Director Esri Partner Network Esri

The biggest challenge we faced was to quickly navigate the learning curve in migrating from a Visual Basic 6 and ASP developer to .NET. Key practices included careful planning and research of the best use of tools, development of small pieces of re-useable code, and use of 3rd party tools like ComponentOne Studio Enterprise controls. WinForms and WebForms controls, such as the ones included in ComponentOne Studio Enterprise can be rapidly built and are very easy to maintain. More...

ComponentOne Studio® Entity Framework Edition

Overall I found the Studio for Entity Framework capable and well thought out. If you are already using the Entity Framework this product will fit into your environment with little effort in return for greater flexibility and greater robustness in your solutions.

Tim Murphy Solution Architect PSC Group, LLC

I think the biggest gains are in the LiveLINQ libraries, and their WPF extensions. This could have saved man weeks for my current client. The UI integration was simple, straight forward, and it handled transactions beautifully.

Devlin Liles Principal Consultant Improving Enterprises

One of the main points is the C1DataSource, it shows a level of simplicity through the property dialogs that allows you to move right along with, for example, how you need to present, filter (server side) and sort data. The same can be said on how simple it is to implement different paging options, it does take into consideration working with this from a client side as well as managing it server side.

Enrique Lima

Entity Framework is Microsoft’s recommended data modeling technology for new applications. We’re very pleased to be working with outstanding VSIP partners, such as ComponentOne, offering products to enhance the framework by providing additional functionality and seeking to improve the overall user experience.

Robin Cole Senior Director of Visual Studio Integration Partners Microsoft Corp.

ComponentOne Studio® Windows Phone Edition

After integrating the ComponentOne PdfViewer control in a Windows Phone application, we came across a PDF file that contained an image in a non-supported format. After contacting technical support, I provided a copy of the PDF file and, within days, an updated PdfViewer was made available that fixed the issue. Outstanding service!

Jeff Bramwell Visual Studio ALM MVP

With another Windows Phone application, we had a need to view/edit/save rich text. The only component I located that met our requirements was the RichTextBox from ComponentOne. Within minutes, I had the component integrated into the application.

Michael Washington Los Angeles County Office of Education

The drag and drop feature that we are able to implement in LightSwitch using the ComponentOne LightSwitch Grid and Rich Text editor provided a sleek and professional user interface and customer experience that would have taken us months to develop were it not for the ComponentOne tools.

Michelle Swann-Renee Executive Vice President FMS, Inc

The bottom line is that our time taken to deliver attractive and functional reporting capabilities took us days or weeks, not the months we would have faced without Studio for LightSwitch.

Mark Runge CEO Skemaz

Who said you can’t show HTML in Silverlight? That’s not true with C1 RichTextBox for Silverlight. It solved us tons of problems and enabled our RIAs to be updateable from our current CMS using plain old HTML.

Emil Stoychev CTO CompletIT

What a difference FlexGrid makes. The fact that it performs so well, isn’t clunky, and that you can edit properly is a revelation.

Using your tool has been very straight forward and extremely productive. I must admit as a VB6 programmer it has been a VERY frustrating process to overcome the learning curve of the .NET environment.

It has been refreshing to work with something that looks and acts familiar to your ActiveX version (VSFlexGrid Pro)... More...
