Hi guys,

I am unable to create an IdeaBlade CAB project with Infragistics controls - the option is greyed out. Is this something you are going to support and if so when? I'm beginning a project that needs not only DevForce, CAB/SCSF but the Infragistics Winforms control suite as well and we're on a very tight deadline.
 
Thanks

Oh well, I assume that, because no one has responded that this isn't going to happen so we've gone and bought the DexExpress Winforms package. On first glance it looks very impressive and the documentation certainly superior to Infragistics. Judging the favourable comments on DevExpress in various forums it's perhaps a move we should have made before...

Regards

Sorry not to respond sooner.  You probably made the right decision.  We'd like to add Infragistics support to Cabana since it's supported by DevForce, but we just don't have the resources to make it happen any time soon.
 
DevExpress works very well with Cabana.

Bill,
 
I've been using Infragistics for several years now and I've also been waiting for Infragistics support to be added to Cabana since I purchased DevForce in late 2007 after I saw Ward's presentation at the patterns & practices Summit in November.  I've been anxiously looking for this with each new DevForce release.  I'm in the middle of a project and though I've been using aspects of DevForce in my latest CAB business modules, I've been looking forward to being able to create new modules using DevForce Cabana tools.
 
For me, it'd be difficult to switch control suites as it would mean inconsistent appearance and (probably) functionality for my end-users and I'd be concerned about the extra effort required to understand DevExpress.
 
Could you get me a more definitive timeframe so I can have more realistic expectations?  Is the number of CAB + Infragistics + DevForce developers too small such that IdeaBlade may not be able to justify the resources?
 
Much Thanks
