Infragistics is a global software company, which was founded in 1989. It publishes user interface (UI) development tools, as well as components for a range of developer applications, across all platforms. The company is also a provider of developer support, testing tools and UI and User Experience (UX) training and consulting services.
Due 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 (News - Alert) with one shared code base written in C# and XAML. These new capabilities are available through a new solution offering, Infragistics Xamarin.Forms.
Infragistics 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
As Jason Beres mentioned, other items that can be considered as firsts in Infragistics Ultimate 14.2 include a Web-based Page Designer with controls for HTML5 and jQuery to create modern line-of-business Web apps. In addition, there are new controls for charting and data visualization, which are useful in the creation of enterprise applications with Windows Forms. In Ignite and ASP.NET (News - Alert) tooling functions have also be added.
There seem to be many enhancements to the new version of Infragistics Ultimate 14.2. According to Infragistics, code samples are available online for Ultimate 14.2, which costs $1,995 per developer and is available for a free trial.
