Web UI Controls

Regardless of whether you are building ASP.NET Web Forms, MVC or pure HTML5 and JavaScript applications, Telerik web UI controls suites can help you deliver apps to market in up to half the time. Each of the toolkits provides access to more than 70 ready-to-use UI controls from must-have components for every app like Grid, Dropdown and Menu, to advanced line-of-business controls such as Charts, Gantt, Diagram, Scheduler, PivotGrid and Maps.

Learn more on the product pages for UI for ASP.NET AJAX, UI for ASP.NET MVC and Kendo UI (HTML5 and JavaScript framework).

In light of the latest Microsoft announcements, all three suites support Visual Studio 2015 and UI for ASP.NET MVC fully supports MVC6 Beta and ASP.NET 5.


Mobile UI Controls


With the introduction of an emulator for Android and Universal Windows apps, Visual Studio 2015 makes building cross-platform native apps for iOS, Android and Windows devices easier than ever. In addition, you can install Xamarin and its prerequisites with Visual Studio 2015, which is all you need to get started with native, cross-platform mobile development in C#. The free developer tier, Xamarin Starter Edition, works with Visual Studio, giving everyone the opportunity to use the platform.

To make Xamarin development even more productive, Telerik offers UI for Xamarin, a collection of UI components and functionality that complement the default controls found in the platform. The components handle many non-trivial scenarios out-of-the-box, helping developers implement polished UI with native-quality performance in their apps while shortening time to market.

Desktop UI Controls

APIs very similar to that of the default Visual Studio controls make Telerik UI for WPF and UI for WinForms easy to learn and use. Rich design-time support and wizards provide numerous options and significantly cut development time. Predefined app templates kick-start development and cover the most common LOB scenarios desktop developers face. The templates come with built-in skins and a modern look and feel that mimics the most popular Microsoft Office applications, including Word, Excel and Outlook. Smart Tags enable easy access and control over the components’ most used features.

210+ Telerik UI controls for both WPF and WinForms ensure a sleek end-user experience and exceptional performance even when displaying large amounts of data in complex scenarios.

Both Telerik UI for WPF and UI for WinForms fully support Visual Studio 2015. With the latest release we have added even more built-in templates that enable you to begin your Office-inspired desktop app with just a few clicks.


Reporting and Productivity Tools


To support all web, mobile and desktop .NET developers, Telerik offers a variety of reporting and productivity tools, including an interactive ad-hoc reporting tool, a mocking framework, a memory and performance profiler and a decompilation tool.

For the new Visual Studio release, Telerik developed a new version of the JustCode Visual Studio extension entirely based on the Roslyn engine. Now you can use the handy JustCode navigation, code cleaner, warnings and refactorings in Visual Studio 2015 for faster, smarter coding.
