View Full Version : Next Coolite 05 release

Apr 29, 2008, 9:22 AM
First of all really thanx for having port ExtJs library to the .NET world!

If possible, I wish to know when (more or less) will be the 05 release availble.

Then, I would suggest to render more clear if Coolite is compatible with ASP.NET AJAX technology, I mean UpdatePanles, Triggers etc. Of course, this wolud be a great thing for a .NET developer!

Thanx a lot

I'm not sure if you have seen my last post in the previous thread, but I have found that the UpdatePanels work with VS2008's built-in ASP.NET AJAX but not the VS2005's ASP.NET AJAX Extension Add-on. I haven't tried updating the toolkit to see if it fixes the problem in VS2005 so this may not be an issue for it either.

Edit: well, I just went ahead and downloaded the latest toolkit for VS 2005 from:
http://www.codeplex.com/Release/ProjectReleases.aspx?ProjectName=AtlasControlToolk it

And directly replaced the dlls from the SampleWebSite, and sure enough it fixed the problem within VS2005. So Microsoft already fixed the problem and I wasn't aware of it, so I apologize :)

The 0.5 release is 99% complete. The release will include ViewPort and several Layout controls, including full design-time support for BorderLayout, AccordionLayout, FitLayout. The GridPanel will not be included with 0.5, although all our focus is turning to the GridPanel, so we should have something to show soon.

I'm looking for a couple people to test out 0.5. If you're interested, please email me directly at geoff [at] coolite [dot] com stating your interest and I will hook you up with the latest build. ALTHOUGH, I can not guarentee getting you the build until 5-May. There's a couple problems still lurking, but with some luck we should have them fixed asap.

I'm really shooting for a beta release of 0.5 mid next week.

Attached is a screen capture of the ViewPort control in Visual Studio.

OH Good God, may you change your mind about IDE and Release 0.5. AMEN! { I really really want to have a feel of the .5 version in my hands and on my machine, singing new UI songs :D}

Version 0.5 has been released. Download (http://www.ext.net/download/).

Forgot to mention... we put a lot of work into supporting the ASP.NET AJAX UpdatePanel, so now the Coolite controls should work as expected.

Please let me know if you run into any "issues".

Hi Guys ... congratulations on a great job with the 0.5 release ... very impressed.

Version 0.5.1 (http://www.ext.net/download/) was released today. Several bug fixes and a pile of improvements (http://forums.ext.net/showthread.php?postid=525.aspx) for Microsoft MVC framework support were included.

The next release (v0.5.2) will focus on documentation, including intellisense, compiled .chm and online browseable. The ExtJS Documentation (http://www.sencha.com/docs/) and Learning Center (http://www.sencha.com/learn) is also a good place to find info.

Hope this helps.

Wonderful, Excellent! I'm very pleased with the progress of the controls so far and how good they behave. Nice work guys :)

Quick update.. Professional Edition licensing and Support Subscriptions are now available.


Let me know what you think.

Jun 12, 2008, 10:39 AM
Thanks for the licensing information,

Since ExtJS has changed their license you guys are pretty much forced to follow suit.

I really think the controls are worth it, but I'm just starting out as a freelance developer and price initially would be an issue since I don't know how many projects I would use the controls on. So I guess I'm stuck with ASP.NET Ajax controls toolkit for a while but I can still mess around with these controls. I just wanted to give feedback on the licensing

Keep up the great work as usual
