Add syntax-highlighting code editors, advanced menus/toolbars, docking windows and MDI features to your applications. Actipro WinForms Studio Suite contains all individual WinForms control products, along with free upgrades and any new WinForms products for one year. It includes advanced, customizable docking toolbars, menus, a complete docking tool window, an Outlook-like navigation bar control and a syntax-highlighting code editor control and parsing suite.

Actipro Bars

Actipro Bars is an advanced bar controls implementation that includes docking toolbars, standalone toolbars, popup menus, and statusbars. The bar controls are based entirely on a command/command link design pattern, allowing for centralized command updates to filter through to every instance of a related command link in the user interface. This also facilitates complete run-time customization support for the end-user, similar to the features found in products like Visual Studio. Keyboard shortcuts have all the features found in Visual Studio, such as single-key shortcuts, chord shortcuts, the ability to be recognized only in certain application modes, and more. Bar layouts can be serialized to a file or stream and later reloaded to restore all the same layout and customization states. Powerful designer support allows you to design and manipulate the bar controls in the designer, and then serialize the layout to code for when the application is executed in run-time mode.

Actipro Docking & MDI

Actipro Docking & MDI is a complete solution for easily adding a docking window and/or multiple document interface to your Windows Forms applications. Allow your end users to drag and dock windows wherever they please, and to persist their customizations. Docking & MDI has been implemented with flexibility in mind. It supports all the types of standard layouts you find in most docking window products, as well as some extended functionality that you won't find anywhere else.

Actipro Navigation

Actipro Navigation contains a NavigationBar control similar to the one found in Outlook, which allows for navigating through different panes of data. It has an elegant user interface which uses buttons to control which navigation pane is selected. Panes can display data or simply act as a container for child controls. If screen real estate is available, large buttons can be used for pane selection. The end-user has the option of using a splitter to move the large buttons into the overflow button tray, which uses smaller buttons. If not all of the buttons can fit in that tray, they flow out into the overflow menu, accessible by the chevron button.

It has many of the same code editing features found in the Visual Studio code editor. SyntaxEditor is designed for use in IDE (integrated development environment) applications, however there are many other applications out there than can take advantage of such a control. Over 20 sample languages are included to get you started (such as C#, HTML, Javascript, and more), and optional premium add-ons with advanced functionality for editing C#, VB, and XML are available as well.

Wizard

Wizard dialogs simplify the user experience of applications by taking complex tasks and breaking them up into a series of simple steps. Actipro Wizard is a lightweight control for building these wizard dialogs in Windows Forms, while conforming to the Wizard97 specifications. Its rich designer functionality and straightforward API make it easy to quickly configure wizard pages. Simply create a page, set its page type, caption, description, and start adding controls to it. Special page types are included to support welcome and finish pages. Basic sequential page navigation is enabled by default, and more complex page order sequencing can be achieved. Dynamic run-time decisions about which page should come next can be made via the handling of selected page change events. Optional page history tracking can be enabled so that pressing the back button will revisit the previous pages in the reverse order they were originally visited, even when complex sequencing was used.

Multiple built-in page types: welcome, interior, exterior

Captions and descriptions that automatically display in page headers
