New suite of components simplify design time development and extend the power of Visual Studio 2005

SAN FRANCISCO, CA - November 7, 2005 -- ComponentOne today launched ComponentOne Studio Enterprise for Microsoft Visual Studio 2005. This new release includes over 25 products compiled natively for Visual Studio 2005 and delivers countless product enhancements focused on simplifying the design-time experience.

ComponentOne Studio Enterprise is one of the largest and most complete component toolsets for developing all layers of Windows, Web, and mobile applications. Studio Enterprise, exclusively engineered for Visual Studio 2005, supports the new features available with Visual Studio 2005 and extends the power of this revolutionary new development environment at the presentation layer as well as all layers of application development including the data, reporting, and transformation layers.

Said Gustavo Eydelsteyn, managing director of ComponentOne, “Our components for the Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0, combined with the power of Visual Studio 2005, provide any level of .NET technology developer with the most simplified and streamlined design-time application development experience ever.”

ComponentOne Chart for .NET and True DBGrid for .NET have been updated with unique designers and wizards allowing developers to visually access complex functionality and quickly integrate the features into applications. The new designers reduce the time needed to learn component object models and allow developers to focus on application development, putting the power of the components at their fingertips.

Leveraging the Unique New Features

Studio Enterprise tools include integration with new Visual Studio 2005 Windows Forms features including Smart Tags, Snap Lines, data binding, GDI+ text, and managed themes.
