Xceed Business Suite for WPF Features

Set of WPF UI Controls for LOB Solutions

  • Provides 6 time- and resource-friendly WPF controls that integrate into Window Presentation Foundation, which further facilitates the work of developers and designers and enhances development speed.
  • Includes WPF datagrid control, 3D views, listbox, and editors, all data-virtualized to ensure responsiveness and a high-performance UI.
  • Automatic data retrieval only gets records from the remote data source if they are visible (data virtualization). This greatly reduces the amount of data to be transferred, which increases the perceived speed of the listbox.
  • Includes a set of controls specifically designed for designers and developers to target the creation of the best UX possible, one that incorporates lag-masking animations and focus enhancing elements
  • Includes 7 WPF styles/themes that let designers apply a polished, uniform look across the entire app in minutes.

A WPF Datagrid

  • Mature and stable, having undergone constant development since its January 2007 release you can trust it in your mission-critical apps.
  • Provides a fluid, high-performance experience.
  • Features hierarchical master-detail and grouping to effortlessly represent tabular data through an intuitive interface.

A WPF Listbox

WPF Themes

  • The WPF themes that Xceed Professional Themes for WPF delivers can be used to style any official Microsoft WPF control and its child items, as well as Page and Window.
  • Provides styles for Microsoft’s datagrid and datepicker controls.

  • Styles can also be applied explicitly for maximum flexibility.
  • Includes the following themes: A Glass theme, to let you create applications that faithfully reproduce the modern look and feel found in Windows Vista and the upcoming Windows 7 operating system, helping end-users focus on the task at hand, rather than on the application and its controls.
  • A Media theme, to let you apply the pleasing styles found in the popular Windows Media Player application. Included is a custom button that resembles the rounded ones found in that application.
