Lightweight controls, VSLab and F#

by cisterni 5. January 2009 11:14

November and december have been busy months and time was short to find enough time to write about VSLab. However, things are going on and we are planning a new release of VSLab soon. The major contribution is from Giacomo Righetti, who has spent time for building a framework of lightweight controls using a former definition from me. Lightweight controls are missing from Windows Forms, and now you can have them in F# (and .NET languages). Giacomo implemented a set of predefined controls such as buttons, scrollbars, and many others so that viewlet development becomes easier. The VSLab shell project is also going on, and actually I have configured my Acer aspire one to start VSLab as a system shell :) I don't really miss Windows explorer... (ok, ok, I know I'm a little bit biased!).
