Component Art web controls

June 16, 2006 § 1 Comment

AJAX has been the buzzword of the industry for quite some time now, but coding in it has always been difficult. Writing code in JavaScript is not all that difficult but debugging the code is what’s the most difficult part of AJAX. The second difficult part is training. I was looking at different components out there for ASP.NET when I came across Component Art.

I have seen Component Art ads in the MSDN magazine many times, but never paid much attention to it, until today. I decided to try it out and was completely blown away. If you ever have thought of doing AJAX and have been waiting for a tool, Component Art should definitely be on your short list. I have to admit I have not tried other tools out there, but I did check Infragistics, their live demos are not as polished as Component Art but I will still give it a try in a few days. Both companies pack 6 to 8 controls in their package and charge around $700. I think these tools are a bit pricy, but then you have to decide whether you want to be a rocket scientist or use the tools and move on. Bottom line, I think the controls are worth every penny given the kind of neat stuff you can do with it.
