ClearStyle Technology for XAML Styling Made Easy

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 you can quickly give a unique look to the control without having to work in Expression Blend or be a professional designer.

ClearStyle Technology for XAML Styling Made Easy

Customizable Control Templates

If themes and ClearStyle aren't enough, we also provide all the styles and templates so you can customize them to your liking. All of the control templates and styles are included with the download and can be imported into Expression Blend or Visual Studio.

Customizable Control Templates

Touch Support

With Windows 8, the tablet and PC have converged into one. Studio for Silverlight supports dragging gestures (and in some cases pinching as well) when scrolling through content, so now your desktop apps can work great on touch devices too!

Touch Support

Engine-Agnostic Reporting

Add report viewing capabilities to your Silverlight applications using our innovative ReportViewer and PdfViewer controls. You can display HTML and PDF-based reports from virtually any report generator such as C1Report, Microsoft SQL Server Reporting Services, Active Reports, Crystal or any report provider capable of generating HTML or PDF output.

Engine-Agnostic Reporting

MVVM Support

Feel confident using the popular MVVM (Model-View-ViewModel) design pattern in your applications with ComponentOne Silverlight and WPF controls. Each control supports dependency properties, complete XAML configuration and the best Silverlight data-binding techniques for even the most advanced MVVM developer.

MVVM Support

UI Automation Support

UI Automation (UIA) enables accessibility applications, such as screen readers, and coded UI testing to examine user-interface elements. It also enables simulated user interaction from code. The included C1.Silverlight.Automation library is a set of Automation Peer classes for the ComponentOne Silverlight controls. Each AutomationPeer exposes a matching control class to the Microsoft automation framework so the control can be used effectively in automated UI tests. UI Automation Support

Support for the Silverlight Analytics Framework

The Silverlight Analytics Framework enables developers to integrate Web analytics into their Silverlight applications to track all user interactions. ComponentOne Studio® for Silverlight controls support this open-source framework by exposing the necessary event handlers to pass useful information to the analytics providers. Use analytic services with Silverlight to measure your business objectives or goals. Using Studio for Silverlight controls with the Silverlight Analytics Framework enables you to fully understand what users are doing when they work within your Silverlight application, whether online or out of browser.

Big Functionality, Small Footprint

We strive to provide as much functionality as possible while keeping our control assemblies as small as possible, because size matters in Silverlight! We accomplish this in part by auxiliary assemblies for advanced features you may or may not need. With smaller assembly sizes overall, you need not worry about longer download times. Plus, we offer XapOptimizer as an add-on tool useful for reducing the size of your XAPs 30-70%.

Big Functionality, Small Footprint

Expression Blend Support

Use Microsoft Expression Blend to fully style Studio for Silverlight controls beyond what ClearStyle and the themes provide. This allows designers to completely customize control templates for a unique and tailored interface.

Expression Blend Support

Code Reuse with WPF and Windows Phone

Studio for Silverlight controls share the same codebase as our WPF controls and Windows Phone controls. So you can build rich web, mobile and desktop client applications while sharing a lot of the same code. This will reduce development time, cost and eliminate the learning curve of having to learn controls from multiple platforms.
