Rich User Interface for Web Applications is no more just a desirable factor. User Interface elements offering great experience to the users has become the most important differentiator in deciding the success of a web application. The statement is true not just for the web application on the World Wide Web but also for the enterprise applications in the Intranet World.
The trends in User Interface keep changing and so does the demand for better and richer User Controls. The developers, who need to be spending time on complex algorithms and Business Logic, end up spending time on the various User Controls like Tree View, Grid View, and File Explorer etc. The fact is that the UI controls are pretty generic and can be used across multiple applications. However, the business logic is so unique to the specific problem. The developers should hence be focusing on the business logic implementation rather than the UI controls. Still, you can’t ignore the importance of User Controls. What business logic is useful, if the end user is not able to get access to it with the right kind of user controls?
Microsoft .NET framework offers various components and libraries for implementing complex algorithms and business logics to meet the varying needs of client requirements. Developing Custom Rich UI controls on top of these frameworks has always been time consuming effort for the development team. For a generic UI requirement, the development team has to spend time in analyzing the requirement, designing, developing and testing the User Control. For every project, developers have to re-invent the wheel. This ends up in increased time to market and a reduce Return on Investment for the clients.
When you choose .NET as a development platform there are several tools and components that are available to reduce the development time. The most important of them, especially in the Presentation Layer (UI Controls) technologies, is RadControls, provided by Telerik – UI Component suites for ASP.NET AJAX, Sliverlight, Windows Phone 7, WPF, Windows Forms and Telerik Extensions for ASP.NET MVC.
