Please take some time to learn more about us and our product offerings.
Sorry for the lack of blog posts recently. We’ve been hard at work on some major new features coming to WPF Studio that we’ll be announcing in the coming couple of weeks. More on that soon!
But on a side topic, as you all know, Microsoft’s BUILD conference was a couple weeks ago and we took some time off our normal development plans to digest all the information about WinRT and Metro style user interfaces. We’ve done some initial examinations of the XAML UI framework to compare it to Silverlight (it’s more like Silverlight than WPF) and look into the feasibility of porting some of our controls like SyntaxEditor to it.
We’ve identified several missing feature areas in WinRT that would make it difficult/impossible to port SyntaxEditor to it. The good news is that we’ve spoken directly with Microsoft PMs on some of these issues and with enough community interest, we can hopefully get the priority bumped up on them so they are there by the Windows 8 RTM.
Continuing on that train of thought, we need your help!
We want to know if you see a use for bringing a control like SyntaxEditor (our syntax-highlighting code editor control) to Windows 8 Metro. If you do, please either post a comment below or e-mail our sales team directly with information such as:
We are compiling this information to present to our Microsoft contacts so please do respond quickly.
