Infragistics is a leading developer of windows, web,
charting, and WPF components that developers can use to increase the
attractiveness and functionality of an application. Infragistics allows you
to leverage many of the common toolset appearances (such as the Office 2007,
2003, or Visual Studio 2005 appearance) that most developers want to have in an
application. This can work seamlessly because all it takes is a simple
assignment of a property for this to happen. Infragistics also supports other ways to apply common sets of styling information using presets, which are unique
to the Infragistics products, and may be close to WPF's styling capabilities,
though stored separately from the application code.
Infragistics has a Ribbon component that you see a wide
array of in application frameworks these days, which will be discussed next. It
is very easy to implement a professional looking ribbon within an application,
which has the same styling as you see in the Office 2007 environment.
