UI Frameworks RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    Wondering if anyone can point to some good UI frameworks. I've looked at the Composite UI Application Block and the UI Process Application Block. Just wondering if anyone knows of others that might be worth investigating.

    I'm primarily interested in this for use with Windows Forms, not  ASP.NET

     

    Thanks,

    Matt

  • DevExpress has a good framework, Simple Application Framework for .Net.  It handles normal Windows Applications.  It is described in a white paper under best practices.  The download code utilizes their tools, but you can use standard .Net controls in place of them.  It is extensible and easy to understand.

  • I really like MS CAB Block. It has a bit of a learning curve, but it is very flexible and extensible.
