Resco has announced that their Windows
Mobile Phone Controls – Resco MobileForm Toolkit will support WP7. These are a set of components to help developers write apps easier. Here are the complete details:
Resco, a leading vendor of advanced developer components and tools for mobile devices, announces that it is working on a new suite of components for the application development for Windows Phone 7 Series.
The new suite of components will be based on the Resco MobileForms Toolkit — the most complete set of controls for mobile applications development targeting Microsoft Windows Mobile platform.
“When Microsoft announced new Windows Phone 7 Series, our customers were curious whether Resco plans to support the new Phone with the favorite controls,” said Radomir Vozar, Resco Developer Tools & Enterprise Division Director. “Windows Phone 7 Series is a big challenge for us and our plan is to provide developers with a complex set of components that will facilitate the development process for the new mobile platform.”
Since the development process for Windows Phone 7 Series is only possible in the Silverlight technology, it is impossible to simply port current controls from Resco MobileForms Toolkit to this new technology, as the current controls are developed in WinForms technology. That is the reason Resco decided to design and develop a new set of controls for Windows Phone 7 Series from scratch. On the other hand, the architecture of new components is designed to be as much compatible with the current Resco MobileForms Toolkit from programming interface standpoint as possible. This conception ensures all developers using Resco MobileForms Toolkit a seamless transition to the Windows Phone 7 Series platform.
The new Resco controls supporting Windows Phone 7 Series will be integrated with Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 and the release is scheduled for Q4 2010.
Always happy to see more dev support…traction is good.
