Roll Out Enterprise and Consumer Apps Faster
Many capabilities of the controls, such as powerful data visualizations, are engineered to facilitate building enterprise apps. However, the consumer and enterprise Windows 8 apps will share a number of characteristics: touch-centric, rich data browsing, deep integration into the shell, consuming data with light data entry and others. Telerik UI for Windows 8 offers many functionalities fundamental for both types of apps, such as Data viz, Date and Time Pickers, HubTile, offline Data Storage and Grid.
HTML or XAML
XAML or HTML? It only depends on your skills set. Pick the technology you are comfortable with. Telerik’s Windows 8 XAML and HTML libraries deliver the same user experience to end users no matter which library you use. You can count on extensive documentation and online demos for both suites.
Designed for Touch
The controls are specifically designed for the Window 8 touch environment, enabling every single gesture and interaction with the touch screen. At the same time Telerik controls for Windows 8 are keyboard sensitive when a keyboard or pen is available.
Windows Store Ready UI
Telerik UI for Windows 8 adheres strictly to the Windows 8 design guidelines facilitating your app’s acceptance to the Windows store. The controls include the proper CSS and expose the same APIs for binding and setting control options as the stock Windows 8 XAML and WinJS controls provided by Microsoft.
Native Windows 8.1 Controls
The suite is not a quick port from another platform. It is built from the ground up for Windows 8.1 taking advantage of many of the new OS features. One example is the ThemeResource markup extension that allows you to update the XAML controls themes at runtime.
Telerik UI for Windows 8 uses advanced UI virtualization to ensure exceptional app performance. The flagship Grid component is fast and fluid, capable to process hundreds of thousands of records, even on low-end Windows 8 devices. The Map control leverages Direct2D rendering to produce ultimate performance. Your app can render thousands of shapes even on slower devices without compromising the rich user experience.
The Most Complete Windows 8 HTML Library on the Market
The suite includes a variety of controls useful in a spectrum of apps, ranging from enterprise grade apps to your first Windows Store entry. From rich data visualization tools like Charts and Gauges, through a Grid for tabular display of data with a load of features, to single-purpose controls like RadialMenu, Date/TimePicker and TokenInput, we offer the greatest number of feature-complete HTML controls.
Reimagined for Touch, Windows Store Ready
Reimagined for touch and compatible with the native Windows 8 framework, Telerik UI for Windows 8 provide the tooling to build compelling touch enabled user interfaces. The controls are specifically designed with the Microsoft UX guidelines in mind, saving you the hassle of adding additional styling.
