So you can deliver a professionally designed theme for your entire application in just seconds. But if you do need a customised look that our themes do not provide, you can easily change control brushes in Visual Studio without having to override control templates thanks to our time-saving ClearStyle technology baked into every ComponentOne control.

Localisation for 20+ Cultures

Broaden your global audience with quick localisation support for 20+ international cultures. Studio for Silverlight includes the necessary resource files for localising your apps so you can publish in Arabic, Chinese (General, Simplified and Traditional), Czech, Danish, English, German, Greek, Finnish, French, Hebrew, Italian, Japanese, Dutch, Norwegian, Polish, Portuguese, Romanian, Russian, Slovak, Spanish, Swedish and Turkish.

Write Once Deploy Everywhere

Studio for Silverlight controls share the same codebase as our WPF, Windows Phone, and Windows Store controls. So you can build rich Web, mobile and desktop client applications while sharing a lot of the same code. This will reduce development time, cost and eliminate the learning curve of having to learn controls from multiple platforms.
