Stingray Studio Components Make It Easy

Objective Toolkit

Objective Toolkit provides a library of controls and utilities. These enhance the graphical user interface of custom applications. You can use a wide variety of powerful Microsoft Foundation Class (MFC) components such as color well, tab control, calendar, currency, and calculator.

The diversity of components in Objective Toolkit makes it easy to customize and enhance your GUI applications.

Objective Grid

Objective Grid helps you quickly deliver effective, custom spreadsheets with embedded controls. It provides a complete library of extension classes that implement a grid control. You’ll be able to manipulate data by enhancing the capabilities of cells within the grid.

Objective Grid can use multiple methods for data exchange:

  • ADO and ODBC databinding.
  • XML and HTML serialization.
  • Interaction with Microsoft Excel.

Plus, you can migrate existing Objective Grid applications into a .NET environment — and create new components using the designer.

Objective Chart

Objective Chart delivers high-performance, advanced charting capabilities. This includes a variety of two-dimensional chart types.

Charts provided are fully customizable and can be combined into new chart types. The collection of basic chart types include bar, line, pie, web, area, and plot types with variations on each.

Objective Chart has a class-based architecture. So, you can easily extend and enhance these basic capabilities by using the chart extension system.

Objective Edit

Objective Edit offers an advanced text editor component with syntax coloring.

You can use Objective Edit to:

  • Implement an interactive environment similar to the Microsoft Visual Studio editor
  • View and edit source code, scripts, and mark-up languages — including C++, C#, XML, JavaScript, VBScript, and HTML.

The editor can be customized for any other language.

Objective Views

Objective Views provides components for building drag-and-drop graphical interfaces. You can use it to incorporate custom graphical objects and enhanced drawing capabilities.

Objective Views are similar to diagramming tools (e.g., Visio) in functionality. You’ll have a canvas — a drawing surface abstraction — to use for drawing and manipulating symbols and graphics. These objects can be moved, scaled, rotated, connected, or even animated.

“By using Stingray graphical user interface components, our developers brought our product to market faster, while using significantly less development resources than initially planned. The cost and time investment of maintaining the user interface has been minimal.”
