Lumisoft UI Controls 0.11 is a Windows Forms app tool that offers a range of basic flat controls. Although the controls can be configured through the VS.NET Property tab, there is no advanced WYSIWYG design-time support or databinding feature, making it buggy.
The library makes it convenient for developers to add controls to their applications that would otherwise require a lot of work. For instance, the library offers ButtonEdit, which combines an EditBox and a Button, and other controls like SpinEdit and OutlookBar.
However, the library appears to have some bugs. For instance, the code generated when dragging a control, wFrame type, onto a Form, will not compile since it inserts obsolete code that has a typographical error.
Although developers can configure controls using the Property tab in Visual Studio .NET, the controls lack advanced WYSIWYG design-time support compared to other control libraries. Besides, the library's code is written in C#, and the controls have limited databinding capabilities.
Furthermore, some properties do not seem to have any effect, and the library is limited to one style, unlike other libraries. The toolbar is not dockable, meaning it cannot float in applications.
Overall, Lumisoft's UI Controls 0.11 is a useful tool for developers seeking basic flat controls to add to their Windows Forms applications. However, it has some bugs and lacks some features compared to other control libraries.
