Progress Telerik .NET Dev Tools Add Native Blazor UI Components

Progress announced an update to its .NET-centric Telerik line of development tools that features a new suite to accommodate the red-hot Blazor initiative, which lets coders use C# instead of JavaScript for Web projects.

Progress Telerik UI for Blazor includes 17 native UI components, such as Grid, Charts, TextBox, DropDownList and several themes based on SASS (Syntactically Awesome Style Sheets).

The company said its new Progress Telerik tooling for .NET developers release also provides full day-zero support for Visual Studio 2019 and .NET Core 3.0, which is Microsoft's new-era, open source, cross-platform .NET implementation coming in September to supersede the ageing, Windows-only .NET Framework.

The release includes updates for: Web (Telerik UI for Blazor, ASP.NET Core, MVC and AJAX); mobile (Progress Telerik UI for Xamarin); and desktop (Progress Telerik UI for WPF and WinForms) product lines, along with reporting, testing and productivity tools.

"Developers today are under pressure to create applications much faster, while delivering outstanding user experiences," said company exec Faris Sweis. "To build apps that are high-performance and intuitive to use, they need the right tools. With the new additions to Telerik tooling in today's release, developers can now build with full support for the latest Microsoft technologies and new components for Blazor, so they can create apps that users love."
