|Intersoft ClientUI 8 > ClientUI Fundamentals|
Intersoft ClientUI is built on the top of powerful framework and cross-platform architecture enabling various UI challenges to be addressed in an elegant and efficient manner. Many of the frameworks that power ClientUI's controls - such as routed events, routed commands, binding library, drag-drop, MVVM framework and more - are exposed to be available for public use.
The routed events and commanding are paramount in today's modern RIA applications to deliver rich command interface and consistent user experiences throughout the entire application. The MVVM-ready framework streamlines application development with efficient data binding, thus keeps your code clean, test-able and easy to extend. In addition, ClientUI also provides comprehensive fluid drag-drop behaviors and cross-platform APIs to create compelling and natural user experiences.
