    Could a WinForms app get any slicker?

    September 05, 2007 Share
    Many days passed since my last post (which is rather interesting and concerns the MS Surface technologies) but now I have the opportunity to justify why: Beta release of RadControls for WinForms Q2 2007 was on the way! We introduced only one new component – the RadCalendar for WinForms, but please do not underestimate the release: all our components contain very serious improvements like RTL language support, hierarchy support, documentation, etc. Let me draw some aces on the table: Major redesign of our QuickStart Framework: Yes, it is more beautiful and has greater usability than ever! It has been completely redesigned to offer...
