Infragistics Extends Mobile App Dev Tools

Infragistics has updated its developer toolkit with new functionality including increased support for building cross-platform mobile apps.

Thanks to a recent partnership with cross-platform specialist Xamarin Inc., developers can now use the new Infragistics Ultimate 14.2 release to target iOS, Android, and Windows Phone with one shared code base written in C# and XAML. Those new capabilities are available through a new solution offering, Infragistics Xamarin.Forms.

Infragistics Xamarin.Forms lets developers use native controls with the Xamarin tooling in the Visual Studio IDE. Infragistics had supported building native apps previously with separate control sets written in Objective-C and Java for iOS and Android platforms, respectively.

The UI component specialist listed the following features in Infragistics Xamarin.Forms:

  • Interactive charting, including common series like category, stacked, polar, radial and scatter, with trend lines, financial indicators, interactions and animations.
  • Additional business data visualizations like pie charts, gauges and bullet graphs.
  • Fully virtualized, data-bound, high-performance data grid with pin-able columns, carousel views, selection events and customizable layouts.

Ultimate 14.2 also includes a new WYSIWYG Web-based Page Designer that leverages HTML5 and jQuery controls to build modern line-of-business Web apps and new data visualization and charting controls for building enterprise applications with Windows Forms.

Other new features were added to the company's Ignite and ASP.NET tooling. Additionally, the Windows Presentation Foundation functionality has been enhanced, along with the Indigo Studio design tool.

Infragistics said code samples are available online for Ultimate 14.2, which costs $1,995 per developer and is available for a free trial.
