Infragistics Announces Support for Microsoft's .NET Core 3 Platform, Adds Faster Grid and Chart Functions to Web Products

CRANBURY, N.J. - APRIL 23, 2019 – Infragistics, a worldwide leader in providing tools and solutions to accelerate design and development, today announced the launch of Infragistics Ultimate 19.1, the company’s flagship open-source development platform. Infragistics also develops business solutions for BI and dashboarding.

.NET is the open-source, general-purpose development platform maintained by Microsoft and the .NET community on GitHub. Considered the biggest release of .NET since its inception, .NET Core 3 allows desktop developers to leverage modern .NET capabilities for rich client, IoT, artificial intelligence, and machine learning apps.

Ultimate 19.1 now includes full support for Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) .NET Core 3 packages. WPF is widely used to write rich client applications for desktops and the framework will now be part of open source in GitHub with the rest of .NET Core.

"Ultimate 19.1 allows WPF developers to modernize their desktop applications and tap into the latest .NET Core CLI tools and SDK-style projects in Visual Studio, among many capabilities," said Jason Beres, VP of product development at Infragistics. "NET Core 3 is also estimated to increase application performance by as much as 30%."

Fastest Grids and Charts for the Modern Web
The ability for developers to build custom apps that include fast-scrolling grids (tables) and charts is critical for end users in any line of business or financial scenario that requires high-volume or real-time data displays. Ignite UI, Infragistics’ modern web toolkit in the Ultimate product, ships out of the box with pixel-perfect vertical and horizontal virtualized scrolling in both the Angular and React versions. Unlike some competitors, Ignite UI’s performance doesn’t falter as complexity increases—whether across 100 or 100,000 rows, users experience no screen flicker, no whitespace, and no lag-time.

The new 19.1 release adds new grid functions, including a Hierarchical grid and Tree grid. Both of these new grids share all of the UX and performance features in the market-leading Tabular data grid that ships in Ignite UI for Angular.

Excel Functionality without Excel
With 1.5 billion users, Excel is the most widely used spreadsheet in the world. But including Excel functionality into custom apps is complex and requires Microsoft Excel to be installed on the client machine.

Infragistics overcomes this challenge by offering the most complete solution for Microsoft Excel and spreadsheets. The Infragistics Excel Library includes dozens of core capabilities that map directly to Microsoft Excel, and the Infragistics spreadsheet allows an almost exact experience of Microsoft Excel. Users can read, write, and create Excel documents, visualize data with charts and sparklines, sort, use formulas—with no compromise in the features or performance of using native Microsoft Excel.

For More Information
Infragistics Ultimate 19.1 will be available to the public on April 23rd, 2019.
