Reviews for this release

The namespace example doesn't work; I added the DLL to my project but can't include any of the components. Can someone provide a COMPLETE working project example?

Great work, really good DateTime and TimePicker. Extremely useful.

Great set of controls with great support from developer!

Very useful. There are some small issues here and there, but overall it's very useful. *DEFINITELY* needs chart and gauge controls.

No exception handling, e.g. when connecting to PART_-elements in OnApplyTemplate, conventions like setting up Template-Part Attribute on classes are almost no support for Blend.

Works very well, some excellent additions to the WPF framework. In my opinion most of these controls should be added to the framework.

This is a really useful set of controls - I'm currently using the DateTimePicker and the PropertyGrid (why is the built-in version only available in Windows Forms?), though I'm trying to tweak the PropertyGrid a bit, e.g. user-defined ordering of categories, etc.

It's really one of the coolest toolkits I have used.

Invaluable - thank you for your effort!

Extremely useful addition to your WPF toolbox. Polished controls as in some high-end commercial toolkits.
by Tonko on Oct 25, 2011 at 12:58 AM
Without any doubt the most useful WPF control library.
by Steelhead on Oct 13, 2011 at 9:55 PM
These controls have saved me so much time and we use them extensively at EnGraph. They really fill a void left by the stock WPF controls. Brian is quick to respond to issues and suggestions and is a pleasure to deal with. Looking forward to the next release!

This is a great job and a great initiative.

Best of the best user's controls library for the WPF. It makes me really happy, especially PropertyGrid. The response time for the bug/feature requests is above expectations. Thanks =)
