Posted on January 9, 2012
January 9th, 2012, Bratislava, Slovak Republic – Bee Mobile, producer of Graphical User Interface components and controls for mobile computers has released 3 new .NET Compact Framework controls. The new controls are TLabelAnimated, TabControl and WaitCursor. Together with these brand new controls and new features added to existing controls Bee Mobile iPack with its total of 32 controls and components has become of the richest suites of developer tools in its segment on the market.
”Bringing new controls to Bee Mobile iPack is always a challenging task for us to accomplish not only because we want to extend the possibilities for our customers, but also to guarantee the quality of the products.”, said Vladimir Gregor, CEO at Bee Mobile. “I am confident to say that with the new release of Bee Mobile iPack we have succeeded in this task.”
TLabelAnimated is able to breathe some life into the applications. By utilizing it the developer can effectively use the small display size of a mobile device to display more text than normally would fit into a standard Label. TLabelAnimated is also transparent with adjustable level of opacity.
TabControl is a well-know .NET Compact Framework control. With Bee Mobile TabControl you can adjust the size of the tabs so that your users can switch among the tabs comfortably just using their finger. Controling an application with a finger is a trendy and certainly a comfortable way. You can also put PNG icons and images onto the tabs. This can help the developers greatly to internationalize their applications.
WaitCursor is a powerful animation control which is very simple to use at the same time. All it needs is a set of images (transparent PNG files will do the best) and it will play the images in an infinite loop. Thanks to this feature, you can create animated spinners or other wait cursors. Very attractive and useful to inform the user of a background operation taking place such as a file download. Full Visual Studio Designer support implies no coding is required.
