Silverlight proof-of-technology

[Infragistics] Devin Rader / Thursday, June 14, 2007

At TechEd this year, Infragistics showed a cool proof-of-technology demo based on the Silverlight 1.1 framework.  The demo shows not only how developers and designers can use the power of Silverlight to create some amazing user experiences by combining rich media and content, but also demonstrates three prototype Silverlight-based controls we have been working on, an Image Slider control, Slider Panel control, and Chart control.

If you were not at TechEd, you can check out the demo online at

Other Announcements

The Silverlight demo also includes information on two other announcements that we make at TechEd.  The first announcement is regarding NetAdvantage for WPF's support for Visual Studio 2008.  Currently in the public Beta version of VS2008, controls take advantage of extensibility points to provide automatic XAML and code Intellisense, and a real-time view of the controls on the VS2008 design surface.  As Visual Studio 2008 moves forward through its Beta cycle, we will continue to add more integration of the controls into Visual Studio.

More info on our VS2008 integration is here.

The final announcement is around a new set of ASP.NET controls we are currently working on called 'Project Aikido'.  These new controls are architected and built specifically for the ASP.NET 2.0 + ASP.NET AJAX Extensions 1.0 stack, and will also be natively targeting ASP.NET 3.5 when it releases.

Finally, thanks to everyone that came by the booth this year and chatted with us.  If your lucky you became an it getter ;)
