MB Technologies Announces Bindows 3.0 Beta Program

Generic SVG support to Bindows added for charts, graphs, gauges and more in both VML and SVG

MB Technologies added generic SVG support to Bindows and implemented the charts, graphs, gauges and more in both VML and SVG. Bindows now presents a unified, object oriented API for creating rich Business Graphics in all supported browsers. Now developers can create complex graphics without having to deal with all the quirks of different formats and browsers.

The detailed demo of the new software and its features will be made available during the upcoming AJAXWorld Conference & Expo 2007 East, in New York City.

Bindows BiGauge2 class library is a comprehensive, object oriented class library for creating dynamic and advanced gauges that can contain several ranges, scales, dynamically updatable needles and more.

It also has classes for creating advanced gradients, backgrounds and image backgrounds. Since gauges are created using vector graphics, now you can dynamically update almost every property of a gauge, including the needles. This enables presentation of almost real-time updates in gauges.

Bindows animation library enables adding animations to Bindows components - thus creating visual effects like pulsating buttons, fade-ins, fade-outs, animated movement and resizes. Bindows animations can be synchronized with each other and can use various acceleration curves. A simple and straightforward API lets you create special animator objects, then associate them with your components, making them animated.

Bindows 3.0 charting package can generate the layout in SVG - thus attractive and dynamic graphs can now be created also for Mozilla.

The new GridPanel2 now includes a layout panel that supports vertical and horizontal alignment, rowspan, colspan, offset and settable sizing to Bindows. It is useful for generic layout of applications and it drastically improves layout performance in many typical cases (replacing multiple boxes with a single gridpanel).
