GrapeCity Updated Wijmo 5 Expands Line of HTML5 and JavaScript Products

GrapeCity Developer Tools has released its latest version of Wijmo 5 expanding GrapeCity's line of HTML5 and JavaScript products for enterprise app development. The Wijmo family offers JavaScript Controls (Wijmo 5), classic jQuery Widgets (Wijmo 3) and a spreadsheet component (SpreadJS).

"Touch First, Mobile First, was our mantra when setting out to create a set of true JavaScript controls and not widgets, which is a key differentiator in the market," said Chris Bannon, product manager of Wijmo. "With true JavaScript controls you get UI components nearly identical to what you would find in .NET with common API for Properties, Methods and Events. Wijmo 5 includes all the controls and elements required to develop modern MVVM applications that run on desktop and mobile devices," said Bannon.

According to Bannon, with the entrance of several new web technologies in the application development market, and the standardization of ECMAScript 5 and HTML5 as well as the introduction of TypeScript and the AngularJS framework, the Wijmo development team saw the opportunity to create a library of controls that delivered the same power and flexibility developers were accustomed to in other platforms.
For developers who have been following TypeScript, a free and open source programming language developed and maintained by Microsoft, Wijmo 5 provides all the benefits of object oriented programming. Written in TypeScript, Wijmo 5 compiles to ECMAScript 5, which runs on all modern browsers. 

The collection of controls in Wijmo 5 range from Input controls, to Data Visualization controls, to FlexGrid control. The FlexGrid is a JavaScript version of the .NET control. Developers can create both bound and unbound grids, merge cells, and more with many other features unique to FlexGrid. 

For .NET developers migrating to HTML5, Wijmo 5 provides a familiar experience by having created ICollectionView in JavaScript. All of the Wijmo 5 Controls can be bound to CollectionView, giving developers a very easy migration path from the .NET platform.
