Awhile back we discussed Dreamweaver as a potential Ajax IDE.
Here’s the press release:
Nitobi”s Complete UI is a powerful set of components that will give Dreamweaver users the ability to present data in an engaging format in a fraction of the time,” states Michael Lekse, Vice President of Sales and Services at WebAssist. “Dreamweaver professionals looking to enhance their user interface functionality should turn to Nitobi with confidence.”
The easy drag and drop feature for Dreamweaver reflects Nitobi”s philosophy of fast, easy web application development–a key selling point of Complete UI. Complete UI components are designed to be easy to implement and to help create web applications with intuitive and graceful user interfaces. The Complete UI suite includes:
- Grid — A cross-browser spreadsheet with Excel “copy/paste”, LiveScrolling, and more.
- ComboBox — A drop-down menu with autocomplete functionality, similar to Google Suggest.
- Calendar — A high-performance calendar picker that can be used with Nitobi Grid or in standalone web applications.
- Callout — A rich, skinnable tool-tip that prompts users with real-time feedback and helpful instructions as they navigate through an application.
- Fisheye — A tool bar menu featuring fisheye magnification, similar to Apple OS X tool bar.
- Spotlight — A tool for creating stylish guided tours of websites and applications.
- Tabstrip — Folder tabs for navigating to different sections of a web application via Ajax or iFrame requests.
- Tree — A hierarchical data view, similar to the folder view in Windows Explorer.
- Ajax Toolkit — A library of fully-documented tools used in Nitobi components that can be re-used in your own applications, or to build your own components.
In addition to Dreamweaver support, Complete UI includes enhancements to Nitobi Grid, including expanding spreadsheet-style rows and even better performance.
