SOFIA, Bulgaria, February 9, 2007 – Telerik, the leading vendor of UI components for .NET development, is happy to announce that its RadControls suite has been selected as a finalist in the Software & Information Industry Association's 22nd Annual Codie Awards. RadControls for .NET was selected over many high-caliber products as a finalist in the Best Software Development Solution category.
A flagship product from the finalist suite is RadControls for WinForms. The first ever Vista-style controls for Windows Forms enable developers to build previously impossible interfaces with highly attractive features like scaling, rotation, Flash-like animations, vector transformations, transparencies, etc. The unique Telerik Presentation Framework goes beyond application development to bring the WPF look to WinForms. For developers who are still not ready to switch to WPF, Telerik offers an alternative without the need to learn the new WPF development paradigm.
For 22 years, the CODiE Awards, organized by the Software & Information Industry Association (SIIA), have been the leading honor for the high tech industry's finest products and services. Through a unique combination of journalist and peer review, the Codie Awards recognize 72 categories of outstanding products and services.
