banner_mft2010 Resco, a supplier of advanced developer components and tools for mobile devices, releases today Resco MobileForms Toolkit 2010, which is optimized for Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 and the Microsoft .NET Compact Framework 3.5.

“Since 2003, when the first version of Resco MobileForms Toolkit was released, we have been  working hard to enrich each new release by adding new components to support modern and ground-breaking mobile technology,” said Radomir Vozar, Resco Developer Tools & Enterprise Division Director. “The current year is no exception; the 2010 edition not only allows developers to develop attractive and fully competitive mobile applications, but it reasonably simplifies the development process and saves time.”

New Component Themes

New Resco component themes are various graphic drafts of mobile forms that were elaborated based on Resco’s knowledge of mobile software. The themes list along with screenshots of every control is accessible directly from Visual Studio designer. After the appropriate theme is selected, it can be easily applied into the component. This function significantly facilitates the development process. It provides developers with graphical drafts that cannot be created in standard Visual Studio environments.  Furthermore, the majority of the themes contain professionally designed icons which enhance the development experience. 

Three New Components

Resco ScrollBar is a component that copes with mobile device’s screen limitations by allowing developers to browse the screen content easily and comfortably. Resco ProgressBar is a customizable progress bar with advanced graphics. Another new component, called Resco MaskedTextBox, allows developers the opportunity to fine-tune their applications by simplifying the data input fields. .

New and Updated Standalone Designers

Standalone designers are an additional functionality upgrade in the Resco MobileForms Toolkit components; they can  be used by Visual Studio designers and launched separately as well. The designers allow components to be designed in the specific environment that is designated for the specific component. Along with updated components AdvancedList and DetailView, the Resco MobileForms Toolkit 2010 brings brand new designers to AdvancedComboBox, AdvancedTree, and CustomKeyboard.

“The new features of Resco MobileForms Toolkit 2010 provide developers with advanced tools so they can work even more effectively and quickly deliver attractive applications to customers through Windows Marketplace for Mobile,” said Jason Lim, director of ISV and developer experience at Microsoft Corp.
