Intersoft’s Web UI 2008 Package

Posted on: February 12, 2008

I downloaded Intersoft’s new Web.UI Visual Studio 2008 beta package and started to play around with their slick Silverlight controls on the weekend. The controls look quite promissing and very intuitive.

I concentrated entirely on two specific controls called the WebCoverFlow and WebFishEye. They were mostly inspired by the Apple’s iTunes application and Leopard in general. But nevertheless, they definitely add a very cool user friendly interface and/or navigation to any website or web application and they seem fairly straightforward to work with.

While I was trying to customize the controls and dynamically add items to their collections, it seemed and felt more and more to me like the package is still in its early Alpha stage instead of the claimed Beta. And that’s based on the numerous bugs and errors I constantly encountered. Not to mention the inability to use the designer tool available on most of the control’s smart tag options. The designer would open but wouldn’t save nor apply any changes you make. Which makes it quite difficult to fully experience all the control’s features.

That being said, I still think there is something solid behind those controls and I will keep checking for any updates available soon, hopefully, from Intersoft. In the meantime, I will continue experimenting and playing around with it.
