Wijmo 2013 v1 Releases Mobile Widgets and an HTML5 Spreadsheet Control

PITTSBURGH, April 18, 2013 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ -- ComponentOne, a division of GrapeCity and a leader in developer-productivity tools, has announced the 2013 v1 release of Wijmo Enterprise: a kit of user interface (UI) widgets for HTML5 development. This release debuts a new addition to the kit, a high performance spreadsheet component for enterprise web application development.

"We have expanded our collection of over 40 widgets to include first-class mobile support," said Chris Bannon, product manager at ComponentOne. "All of our widgets will automatically adapt to jQuery Mobile or jQuery UI environments given we have created the first and only Adaptive Widget Framework on the market with this release," said Bannon.

Initially released as a Beta version in February of 2013 and since moved into RTW (release to web), Wijmo Enterprise now models the company's other products with a subscription-based plan. Bannon shared that, "Wijmo will feature three releases per year and any customer with a current subscription will be eligible for free upgrades." BreezeJS is quickly becoming the industry standard plug-in for providing data services to JavaScript applications and the 2013 v1 release of Wijmo integrates with these standards. This integration with BreezeJS keeps Wijmo lightweight and gives developers the flexibility to choose the frameworks they want to work in.

Building off the company's 20 years' experience with spreadsheet controls, ComponentOne has introduced SpreadJS, the new spreadsheet control which is now part of Wijmo Enterprise. This JavaScript-based widget uses HTML5 Canvas to render Excel-like spreadsheets. "SpreadJS brings additional data visualization and calculation features into your web applications," said Bannon. "Now you can create calculators, dynamic interactive dashboards, rich colorful reports, and much more using SpreadJS." Availability The Company offers download and purchase options online at or by email at [email protected].
