.NET component maker Resco today announced it has released updated versions of two products: Resco MobileForms Toolkit and Resco MobileBusiness ESP. The company also announced today that it will support Windows Phone 7 and Visual Studio 2010 development.
Resco MobileForms Toolkit 2010 Volume 2 updates the mobile development component package for Visual Studio 2008 and .NET Compact Framework 3.5. The new toolkit adds an Image Manager module to streamline handling of images in mobile development projects. Also new to Volume 2 is the Resco MessageBox, an advanced message box class that the company says can display text or buttons "in a graphically attractive style."
An earlier version of Resco MobileForms Toolkit last year earned a Visual Studio Readers Choice Merit Award in the Mobility Tools and Frameworks category.
Resco MobileBusiness ESP 2010 Volume 2 is a mobile sales force automation (SFA) and customer relationship management (CRM) solution that includes a client application, Web service and Web client. The new version adds a Tablet Client for speeding the development of applications optimized for tablet form factors. MobileBusiness ESP 2010 is turned for Visual Studio 2008 and .NET Compact Framework 3.5.
Resco also announced that it is working to release a new suit of Silverlight development components for Microsoft's Windows Phone 7 mobile platform. The company says the new product will share programming interfaces and other elements with the WinForms-based Resco MobileForms Toolkit, in an effort to ease the transition for Resco customers moving to the Windows Phone 7 platform.
The new Windows Phone 7 controls, which will be integrated with Visual Studio 2010, are expected to be released in the fourth quarter of 2010, according to the company.
