ClientUI Benefits

The wide selection of fine controls, diverse innovation and features of ClientUI – ranging from development experience to high-quality results – makes it the most comprehensive suite for user experience designers, solution developers, system architects, and more.

For System Architect

ClientUI enables you to take full advantage of the underlying power of the platform and deliver rock solid and scalable application architecture that no other solutions can achieve. Rapid client runtime application development with native MVVM framework support and full-featured WPF compatible routed commands and events are two innovative features available out-of-the-box in ClientUI.

System Architect

Design innovative data driven applications by connecting the interface of your application to backend business services and databases through the declarative XAML binding feature. Unlock more possible scenarios, such as: loading an external XAP on demand with the Applications Framework.

Delivering rich Silverlight business applications along with the WPF version? No problem. The shared generic set of API ensures seamless cross platform development using the same source code. ClientUI makes the delivery of such high-end applications possible in realistic timeframes.

For Business Developers

Business developers typically aren't designers – they love to use the tools they already familiar with, the Visual Studio development environment. ClientUI's rich designer support enables the rapid development of business Silverlight solutions without leaving the Visual Studio 2010 development environment. Easily jump start a new project using professionally-designed project template and rapidly add new items – all within Visual Studio. Use copy-paste to instantly duplicate repetitive UI controls – ClientUI's smart designer intelligently knows where to put them properly.

And with 60 rich UI controls styled with Windows 7-theme in your toolbox, you have everything you need to create your next-generation business solutions easily – without dealing with tedious control templating or styling tasks.

For UX Designers

ClientUI is built by UX designers, for UX designers. And what matter the most for a UX designer is the tool that work the way just as expected – taking the creative idea all the way from concept to finished project. Pushing Expression Blend’s designer capability beyond, ClientUI provides equally streamlined development workflow as in Visual Studio 2010. Now, it is possible to create a sample data and bind it to ClientUI’s databound controls, or automatically expand MenuBar’s menu when an item is selected so you can have a quick visualization on the real result. Even better, you can also interact with a Window object as if it is running in a browser.

All ClientUI® controls are built with Blendable™ standard, the strictest measurement ensuring the most optimal control design when used in Expression Blend®. This means that you can customize every detail of styles and templates in your most familiar way.

For End Users

User is the most objective benchmark on your business application. The goal is to provide an application that is easy to use, intuitive, and visually appealing with subtle animations involved. ClientUI perfectly combines the strengths of powerful core architecture and great user experience – producing commercial-class business applications that every user loves to use. All ClientUI controls adopt the highest usability compliance – providing the best user experiences out-of-the-box surpassing users expectation. This includes input modality, focus scopes, access key, popup and popover behaviors, keyboard visual focus, and much more.
