Visual WebGui Rocks On Silverlight 2.0 !!!!! 

Well it is time to raise the bar of the Visual WebGui and Silverlight integration and Silverlight development in general. The new on-line demo which can be found here, provides a very good idea on where we are taking the Silverlight - Visual WebGui combination. We are going for a fully enabled enterprise platform for creating on-line Vista like applications.

Although we are taking it to the Vista direction in terms of look and feel, it does not have to stop there... We will be publishing Quick Starts and samples of fully customizing the UI… very soon... The degree of customization in the Visual WebGui - Silverlight combination will be very impressive as you will be able for example to extend a list box with a picture with as little as two lines of code... it goes without saying that the UI look and feel can be completely restructured...

We have currently released another CTP version which will be followed by constant releasing of fixes and updates to accommodate our goal to have the Visual WebGui - Silverlight capabilities ready for prime time in a few months.

Here are some snapshots showing the richness of the solution (click to see a large clear image), which includes trees, property grids, lists, combo boxes with customized dropdown (tree), full windowing capabilities and much more...


Screenshot 1: Windowing, Lists, Trees, ToolBars, Menus, Splitters and more....

Screenshot 2: Lists, Trees, Tabs, Outlook navigation bar, Splitters and more....

Screenshot 3: Custom drawn ComboBox....

Screenshot 4: Standard ComboBox....

Screenshot 4: WinForms style property grid....

Screenshot 5: Right click context menus....

The Visual WebGui Silverlight CTP and Visual WebGui SDK and can be downloaded here.

Re: Visual WebGui Rocks On Silverlight 2.0 !!!!! 
Hi Guy(s)

May i ask, if someone wants to convert a simple VWG app to VWG Silverlight, does he have to do any major modifications to his project? I haven't created anything in Silverlight yet so i am not experienced at all, but all those picture above are looking really nice and i want to give it a try, just by using an already complete VWG app.

Re: Visual WebGui Rocks On Silverlight 2.0 !!!!! 

Hi,

The simplicity which is the outcome of the decoupled presentation layer architecture of Visual WebGui makes it as simple as a change of a URL extension...

Once the Silverlight presentation layer will be ready (a full beta version will be available within less than 2 months, though new versions will be released on a weekly basis showing progress in each version towards a real world capable version), then installing the Silverlight Extension will enable you to create a ClientBin (SL client code directory) and perform a couple of procedural deployment issues and then, WITHOUT HAVING TO CHANGE A SINGLE LINE OF CODE you will be able to browse to the .wgx good old DHTML version and the .swgx the new Silverlight presentation layer on the same application.

Regards,
Itzik Spitzen
