Customer Comments

  • In a time where customer service is the new marketing, when we discuss which is the best product to have, the answer was always 'the one with the best customer service and support'. ComponentOne customer service was able to keep contact with us for a long time, regarding all our requests and demands. What started as simple request, became a new feature, ready for us to implement, for our customer to see and use, and for ComponentOne to add to their fascinating features. Thank you MESCIUS for your support and for keeping in touch with us through all our problems.

    Naser Arab, Computer Engineer, Verisis A.S.

  • With MESCIUS WinForms components, along with their effective support, we were able to create and maintain our systems. Maximum customer satisfaction and extreme usability are our goal, and these tools have been our best partners.

    Artur Gomes, Product Manager, Digidelta Software Development

  • The ComponentOne Studio product line provides developers controls and solutions that integrate easily with Visual Studio. MESCIUS has consistently delivered timely and complementary products, while supporting the latest technologies, including Visual Studio 2015, Windows 10 and Universal Windows Platform (UWP).

    Mitra Azizirad, General Manager, Developer Platform Marketing, Microsoft Corp

  • I’ve tried all the major 3rd party .Net Tools vendors over the years and I always find that ComponentOne wins out when it comes to documentation and support. Comprehensive, clear and helpful.

    Ged Mead, .NET MVP 2005-2016

  • Researching several development forums led us to your controls. Clear and easy to follow licensing, pdf/xlsx/docx support, great product support, frequent update cycles, clear API, great samples are reasons why we will be choosing ComponentOne Studio – UWP Edition.

    John Casteel, Sr. Investigative Analyst, IRS CI

  • I have been a huge fan of ActiveReports since version 1.0 and VB6. It has been my favorite reporting tool to use ever since. I really like the code behind event driven model and how flexible it is for unique reporting requirements.

    Ralph Corigliano, CEO, Executive Support Systems

  • The drag and drop feature that we are able to implement in LightSwitch using the ComponentOne LightSwitch Grid and Rich Text editor provided a sleek and professional user interface and customer experience that would have taken us months to develop were it not for the ComponentOne tools.

    Michelle Swann-Renee, Executive Vice President, FMS, Inc

  • V3 is a very nice polished release, and breathes fresh life into WinRorms apps for a good while to come. Congratulations to you and the various teams, you should be rightly proud of yourselves.

    Dom Sinclair, Owner, View to Learn

  • By using ActiveReports we were able to fully integrate the project within our existing .NET environment. ActiveReports gives us the ability to design, compile and specify the printing options for the visitor passes.

    Andy Roberts, Software Developer, Marquis Software Development

  • After a thorough evaluation of a number of reporting products, we decided to purchase ActiveReports by ComponentOne, a division of MESCIUS. The report designer in ActiveReports is the easiest to use. This is the most significant reason we chose ActiveReports, and we have saved a large amount of time. ActiveReports provides an array of rich printing settings and offers accurate print control, therefore meeting our needs. Easy to use, rich functions, strong interaction, good performance, stable running and effective technical support are what we love most about ActiveReports.

    YuWang, Program Manager, Liao Ning Ju-long Financial Equipment Co. Ltd.

  • We rely on functionality of Wijmo Core's FlexGrid in our massive next-generation platform products. Wijmo's modern, full-featured FlexGrid with sophisticated grid manipulations is what you will find at the heart of our workflow.

    Aaron Mendez, Manager of User Experience, Thomson Reuters

  • The bottom line is that our time taken to deliver attractive and functional reporting capabilities took us days or weeks, not the months we would have faced without Studio for LightSwitch.

    Mark Runge, CEO, Skemaz

  • I have been using Spread right from version 5 ( in VB6) to new Spread for WinForms. I haven't come across such a feature-rich solid Spread before. To be frank, while migrating our VB6 applications to .NET, our company avoided all third party components except Farpoint Spread. Thanks for giving such a nice component.

    Adavesh Managaon, MVP, Visual C#

  • I think the biggest gains are in the LiveLINQ libraries, and their WPF extensions. This could have saved man weeks for my current client. The UI integration was simple, straight forward, and it handled transactions beautifully.

    Devlin Liles, Principal Consultant, Improving Enterprises

  • As an ISV I need tools that allow me to be competitive. Therefore it's a must to use reliable and stable tools for customized solutions. Not only that, I'm also depended on a knowledgeable and flexible support. ComponentOne provides all that to me and even more!

    Dennis Wallentin, Microsoft MVP (Excel)

  • I noticed an advertisement in Visual Studio Magazine, I downloaded the trial version in a desperate attempt to solve a paging issue when deploying output to a browser interface. I created access labels with multiple files, encapsulated in ComponentOne WebReports for ASP.NET. The XML automatically generated truly object oriented deployment via drag and drop, and setting properties. I only had to type 3 lines of code!

    Alison Richardson, Project Leader, City of Philadelphia, MOIS

  • We purchased Wijmo and their team is doing a great job - good-looking, well-thought-out architecture; documentation; keeping up with ever-changing landscape like no others.

    BJ Jeong, , Cisco

  • Microsoft is excited about ComponentOne’s support for Visual Studio 2008 and the .NET Framework 3.5. This suite of rich presentation controls provides a more seamless design-time experience in both Visual Studio 2008 and Expression Blend.

    Brian Goldfarb, Product Manager in the Developer Platform & Tools Team, Microsoft

  • I have been using ComponentOne WebGrid for some time now presenting data to the end user... I've always been very pleased with it. This week, I had to come up with a way to present a database driven Outlook style Task list... and opted to use ComponentOne WebGrid for the project. Let me just say that I am extremely pleased... especially with the grouping and sorting functions. Y'all have made me look great! Whenever I show the end result to people, I get the gasps and "Wow... How did you do that?" Of course I just smile and let them think what they want... your control is my little secret. I haven't found an attribute yet that I haven't been able to access programmatically at run time, giving me complete control over the user experience! To top it off, it came together extremely quickly... so quickly that the speed of development raised eyebrows...At the risk of sounding cheesy, I'm a customer for life.

    Rob Hudson, Developer, MyDistrict.Net

  • I purchased ComponentOne FlexGrid and it saved my project. I took a gamble that I could effectively display the data using WinForms DataGrids. The data is linear in that there is one row per record, but it is hierarchical with left order cells often repeated in the rows. The features I relied on in ComponentOne FlexGrid include: MergeCells, CellRange, GetCellRange; flxGrid.Styles, BackColor and ForeColor; AutoSizeCol/s and AutoSizeRow/s; WriteExcel. These features as well as the smart way that the grid scrolls vertically, have turned my project from a test program into a polished professional product with a secure financial future.

    Phil Best, C# SQL Software Developer & Electrical Engineer, Strategy Map

  • I heavily use ComponentOne’s Studio Enterprise for Visual Studio 2005 components, and they save me tons of time and just simply work. When I run into complex problems, I turn to my ComponentOne Studio Enterprise toolbox. For instance, I was working on our FrameworkMasters Auditing System for Sarbanes – Oxley and other processes that required using Microsoft Excel without the Excel Interop object model. Implementing a solution took only 30 minutes from the time I discovered I had the ComponentOne Excel for .NET component to completion. That’s power!

    Ken Spencer, Microsoft Regional Director

  • We needed to quickly construct mobile documentation software with ease-of use, a comprehensive feature set, and flexibility. ComponentOne Studio FlexGrid provided us with just that, plus saved us hours of work and coding.

    Ryan Havlick, Vice President -, Hands On Technology

  • FlexGrid and VSVIEW are great tools. We use them intensively in our development.

    Amnon Rapoport, CEO, Planium Software

  • The use of these controls allowed us to add extra functionality and get our product to the marketplace more quickly. The ComponentOne Zip control was very helpful in zipping the manifest and other files, and the ComponentOne Spell control was an excellent enhancement for our Question Editor.

    Jeff Rhodes, Chief Technical Officer, Platte Canyon

  • We needed to quickly construct mobile documentation software with ease-of use, a comprehensive feature set, and flexibility. ComponentOne FlexGrid for Mobile Devices provided us with just that, plus saved us hours of work and coding.

    Ryan Havlick, Vice President, Hands On Technology

  • If you do Visual Basic development like I do, there’s just no way to live without the ComponentOne suite of tools. ComponentOne has tools for Silverlight, Winforms, a highly customizable Office 2007 Ribbon toolbar, tools for ASP.Net, tools for Windows Mobile, and much more! I highly recommend giving ComponentOne a try!

    James Summerlin

  • With ComponentOne Reporting, we have been able to cut our programming time in half by seamlessly converting hundreds of reports directly into our application.

    Levi Knebusch, , Cactus Feeders, LLC

  • The ComponentOne XapOptimizer is cool. We optimized 1MB file and it was reduced to 500Kb. Good Job!

    Ivan Dragoev, Product Manager, SilverlightShow

  • The Silverlight Analytics Framework enables developers and businesses to better understand how their audiences are navigating through Silverlight applications. ComponentOne’s Silverlight 4 controls will allow developers to more easily and efficiently implement Analytics support for their Silverlight applications without having to modify the code within their existing controls.

    Steve Sklepowich, Director for Silverlight, Microsoft Corp.

  • We would not have been able to embark on this application without the ComponentOne controls. Our in-house staff was able to roll out the first phase in six weeks using a number of the ComponentOne WinForms controls including TrueDBGrid, InputPanel, Sizer, DynamicHelp and FlexGrid. Together, we were able to do more in six weeks than the outsourced party could do in ten months. TrueDBGrid really became my “go to” grid because it offered so many features out of the box.

    Ira Dobrow, , Automobile Insurers Bureau (AIB)

  • With Wijmo's extensibility model, the Microsoft Dynamics team was able to quickly customize and incorporate Wijmo 5 controls into our new release.

    Param Kahlon, General Manager, Microsoft Dynamics CRM Engineering

  • As someone who has supported ComponentOne's grid control back to the VSFlexGrid days, I appreciate you guys putting the time and effort into developing FlexGrid for Silverlight/WPF. I have to say that I don't like the DataGrid but I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the FlexGrid. It's like a Swiss army knife and I will never switch!

    Darrin P. Dyson, Director of Development and Systems Integration, Venable LLP

  • Great looking Silverlight controls that work! The C1DataGrid and other Silverlight components are fast, and will do what you need, when you need it.

    Charles Silbernagel, Software Designer, Matrix Solutions

  • Easier to use right off the bat. I liked using the Scheduler for drag-and-drop capability.

    Michelle Gibson, Software Engineer

  • I love the FlexGrid control. It makes my life easier.

    Tim Fageness, Senior Software Engineer, REI

  • I find the reporting tools to be excellent. The Crystal Reports and Access conversion tools and unlimited run-time distribution are all great.

    John Thistlethwaite, Developer and Director, Apptius

  • I use the C1PdfViewer as well as the C1 PDF creation components to create reports inside of Silverlight. The problem that this solves is that without the viewer, you have to save the document up to the server, and then show the user a link to the document. The user then has to click on the link which brings up a browser which they can then use to view the PDF. Far better is the C1PdfViewer. From inside Silverlight, I can create the PDF and display it immediately, resulting in a seamless reporting experience. I highly recommend it!

    Greg Gum, Founder and Lead Software Engineer,

  • The only .NET control tools we trust. They scale well and meet all the needs of our diverse development needs (Web, WinForms, etc.). We have retired all other vendors as a result.

    Rick Erickson, Senior Systems Architect

  • For several years we have had consistent first class support from qualified people who are dedicated to promptly and efficiently helping software developers progress with their project work as smoothly as possible, whilst creating the highest quality state-of-the-art software systems. In many cases I talk to the same support person who is usually one of the actual component developers and who remembers my previous support requests for their area. This is something that is a huge privilege these days with many development platforms dominated by large organizations with faceless people who regularly change roles and have zero personal customer focus.

    Phil Best, Strategy Map Balanced Scorecard Developer & System Architect, Strategy Map

  • ComponentOne FlexGrid is brilliant. You want it to look and act like Excel, and ComponentOne FlexGrid is the first control that does it properly. It makes it a cinch to edit and display since you can cut, copy, use, and manage data just like Excel.

    Rusty Johnson, CTO, sharpcloud

  • With over twenty-three years of experience, ComponentOne offers the most well-rounded offering of tools and components covering all the major platforms (desktop, mobile, and Web) pushing them ahead of the pack as the leading Champion in the Vendor Landscape.

    Randy Hearn, Senior Research Analyst, Info-Tech Research Group

  • Ok folks, I am ‘gonna call it’, we have the “Killer Application” for LightSwitch, ComponentOne's OLAP for LightSwitch... Well, I think ComponentOne's OLAP for LightSwitch may be “The One” for LightSwitch. This is the plug-in that for some, becomes the deciding factor to use LightSwitch or not.

    Michael Washington, Los Angeles County Office of Education

  • The C1FlexGrid for Silverlight is the only grid that I use, whether in personal or professional Silverlight applications. I have used many other grids before finding that the FlexGrid is the highest performance and most flexible grid available.

    Greg Gum, Founder and Lead Software Engineer,

  • Overall I found the Studio for Entity Framework capable and well thought out. If you are already using the Entity Framework this product will fit into your environment with little effort in return for greater flexibility and greater robustness in your solutions.

    Tim Murphy, Solution Architect, PSC Group, LLC

  • As a developer, I appreciate the flexibility of your products. As a business, we find the export formats and the end user designer to be invaluable. The uniqueness of the ActiveReports products have helped to boost our sales which is always a good thing.

    Wendy Mathis, Software Engineer, Knowledge Relay

  • Microsoft is excited to see the new developments in ComponentOne’s release of Studio for Silverlight. ComponentOne’s latest release continues to raise the bar by adding features that will allow users to consume larger amounts of data in Silverlight without compromising the user interface.

    Brad Becker, Director of Rich Client Platforms and Tools, Microsoft Corporation

  • Wow... It almost HALFED the size of my application and works perfectly. This is amazing.

    Jerrod Horton, Software Engineer, Extreme Silverlight Products

  • ComponentOne is the only solution that provided both high quality and performance optimized UI components along with a world-class reporting solution.

    Robert Collins, President, Brisinger Group

  • I called and had a specific question about True DBGrid, and the young man who took care of my call seemed to know exactly what I was asking for. Within 5 minutes he sent the solution to me via email. It's nice to get prompt support from people who know about their product in-depth.

    John Grove, Software Developer, EM&TS Division, TFD Group

  • We purchased VSFlexGrid Pro because it included an API, which enabled quick development, automatic printing, and lots of options for formatting and displaying. It was also easy to use and helped to satisfy the requirements of the client, all for a very affordable price.

    Brian Katz, Owner, Useful Engineering

  • Using your tool has been very straight forward and extremely productive. I must admit as a VB6 programmer it has been a VERY frustrating process to overcome the learning curve of the .NET environment. But your FlexGrid for WinForms tool works very similar to the VB6 version I'm already using. It has been refreshing to work with something that looks and acts familiar to your ActiveX version (VSFlexGrid Pro). I purchased the Studio Enterprise, and am looking forward to integrating some of your other tools.

    Scott Stephen, , Stephen Advanced Technology, Inc.

  • I took much time to research your products; I like your development tools and recommended them for use in our company. There are so many new concepts and methods included in your products.

    Zhenying Wang, Engineer

  • I switched to ComponentOne from another vendors offering and found C1's solution to be just what I needed: fast, lightweight and professional looking while still being easy to learn and use!

    Greg Gum

  • The developers at Pioneer Technology Group have been using the C1FlexGrid since VB6 and have continued using that as well as other controls from the C1 Suite as we have have transitioned through the .NET technologies up through WPF. The FlexGrid gives us the ability to quickly develop data entry screens and administration views for our suite of County Government Applications with the 'flexibility' and customization our customers demand without a deep learning curve.

    Shayne Boyer, Senior Software Architect, Pioneer Technology Group

  • When we converted to .NET, I evaluated all the free alternatives I could find and none of the components even came close to providing the level of programmability and customization that ComponentOne’s did, let alone documentation. It was then an easy decision to go with ComponentOne.

    Nate Cook, Programmer/Analyst

  • We use ActiveReports because of the ease of use and the ability to directly control the SQL for data retrieval. We also find the ActiveReports designer provides the tools to produce rich and graphically pleasing reports very quickly. In a small production shop, we have ActiveReports to be the best product on the market.

    Larry Harker, IT Manager, Association of Oregon Counties

  • I love to use C1 components! I can be confident that if I need to do a particular task, ComponentOne will have the control to do the job. The controls I have used are stacked with properties, methods and events that enable me as a programmer to have granular control in making a program work as desired. Contacting C1 for support is straightforward and easy. I really appreciate the timely response from your staff, their willingness to assist and kind help when I refer an issue to them. The e-mail support is great.

    Silv Sordello, Software Developer

  • ComponentOne VSVIEW Classic Edition and ComponentOne VSFlexGrid Pro were used in Building Works because both components were easy to use, well documented with sample code and help files, and great time savers when implementing complex feature sets.

    Jim Durham, Owner, Vertaco

  • A few years ago, I discovered ComponentOne when I needed several pieces of software. My experience at that time was a very positive one and the sales staff was extremely intent on giving me the products I needed at a great price. So, this time, when I needed an upgrade to the grid that I distribute with our software product, I found, once again, that ComponentOne went one step beyond what I expected. I was asking for something that wasn’t really in their inventory, but they still managed to accommodate my needs. Thanks ComponentOne. Till next time.

    Brian Davis, Technical Services, Edulink

  • Fantastic product by the way. I compared several while I was shopping around and found your suite to be the best by far.

    Eric Lee, Associate

  • I am QUITE impressed by your response and the response of others at ComponentOne in the past 24 hours. You have exceeded my expectations with great promptness and action taken. I will be buying from Component One again!

    Fred Stephens, Software Engineer Contractor

  • We evaluated third-party components from several vendors, and ComponentOne clearly was the best fit for our needs. With ComponentOne Reports for WinForms, I was able to do more in two weeks than I achieved in a month with another vendor’s solution.

    David Kepple, Software Engineer, ASPEX

  • True DBGrid has some really cool features, and it provides easy solutions to common programming requirements. The Export to Excel and Export to PDF were really big time savers and enhanced my application that much more.

    Tom Russell, Software Developer, ALSTOM

  • Who said you can’t show HTML in Silverlight? That’s not true with C1 RichTextBox for Silverlight. It solved us tons of problems and enabled our RIAs to be updateable from our current CMS using plain old HTML.

    Emil Stoychev, CTO, CompletIT

  • One of the main points is the C1DataSource, it shows a level of simplicity through the property dialogs that allows you to move right along with, for example, how you need to present, filter (server side) and sort data. The same can be said on how simple it is to implement different paging options, it does take into consideration working with this from a client side as well as managing it server side.

    Enrique Lima

  • Using tools within the Microsoft ecosystem, ComponentOne has extended charting capabilities with advanced features such as trend lines and scaling. Microsoft looks forward to seeing ComponentOne at TechEd in May.

    Dave Mendlen, Senior Director of Developer Marketing, Microsoft Corp.

  • Your site looks fantastic. I am a .NET developer myself and I am very impressed with your controls.

    Levi Page, Project Manager

  • We selected ComponentOne products for ease-of-use and fast integration into the application development cycle. The products specifically provide bound ActiveX controls for database interaction, as well as reports and presentation tools, plus they’re all very simple to use, and offer feature rich functionality. I have been able to automate the creation of 1,000’s of user accounts quickly, reliably and with a measurable consistency. The next project is already underway for an application to document individual education plans for special needs students within the District. Many more features of the ComponentOne Studio for ActiveX controls will be utilized for this next project.

    Eugene Smith, Technical Services, School District 67

  • We are delighted with the ComponentOne subscription we purchased. The products are absolutely great!

    Tony Robson, Programmer, Databus Computer Systems

  • I have been a senior Software Engineer for 6 years now. I would like to take this opportunity and express my total satisfaction from your state of the art product. Your product met my needs entirely and is proven to possess many characteristics and qualities that I was looking for. I am also impressed with the flexibility of your product and its ability to answer several of my needs at once. In addition the service level and support that I experienced is one you should be proud of. It looks like your company is using the marketing concept where the customer is in the center of all activities. As you proven to know, a company's offering is not only the product itself but a total solution which includes the service and support as well. I can conclude and say that you did not only meet my expectation but by far exceed it.

    Jay Schmelzer, Principal Program Manager of LightSwitch, Microsoft

  • We purchased the Spread controls since they were better and easier to use than the Microsoft Grid controls in .NET. We purchased the ActiveReports product because it was easier to use than Crystal Reports. We also liked the option of the end user reporting which allows the end users to customize the reports in their layout because every team in our organization likes to display their reports a little differently.

    Erin Arroyo, Senior Developer, Geomentum

  • Excellent controls! We are using them for many years, and we are very satisfied!

    Misel Gosic

  • I am really enjoying the Calendar control for Windows 8, it is very easy to use and it has saved me hours of programming.

    Jonathas Sucupira, Software Developer, Bloomin Brands

  • After integrating the ComponentOne PdfViewer control in a Windows Phone application, we came across a PDF file that contained an image in a non-supported format. After contacting technical support, I provided a copy of the PDF file and, within days, an updated PdfViewer was made available that fixed the issue. Outstanding service!

    Jeff Bramwell, Visual Studio ALM MVP

  • With another Windows Phone application, we had a need to view/edit/save rich text. The only component I located that met our requirements was the RichTextBox from ComponentOne. Within minutes, I had the component integrated into the application.

    Jeff Bramwell, Visual Studio ALM MVP

    Rusty Johnson, CTO, SharpCloud

  • When we converted to .NET, I evaluated all the free alternatives I could find and none of the components even came close to providing the level of programmability and customization that ComponentOne’s did, let alone documentation. It was then an easy decision to go with ComponentOne.

    Nate Cook, Programmer/Analyst

  • The biggest challenge we faced was to quickly navigate the learning curve in migrating from a Visual Basic 6 and ASP developer to .NET. Key practices included careful planning and research of the best use of tools, development of small pieces of re-useable code, and use of 3rd party tools like ComponentOne Studio Enterprise controls. WinForms and Web Forms controls, such as the ones included in ComponentOne Studio Enterprise can be rapidly built and are very easy to maintain.

    Chuck Ritzke, Owner, Consultant, and System Designer, Problem Solving Enterprises, Inc.

  • I am very much pleased and satisfied with ComponentOne controls and the support team who have been giving me suggestions and guidelines. I have never felt the need to choose another control because of its reliability, quality and instant support.

    Rajesh Gupta, Application Software Developer

  • This helped. Every component works now even after updates. Thank you for prompt answers. It is nice to see that the best set of components also have the best support!

    Jukka Hossi, , Active Server Works ASW

  • Thank you very much for your help. I'm extremely grateful to you for it!

  • We amended our category choices this year to be more reflective of the products on the market in alignment with Microsoft Tech Ed categories. Close to 300 products and services were nominated this year. Narrowing down the list of nominees to 35 finalists, from so many highly qualified products and services, was an exhaustive process for our judging panel. We chose ComponentOne based on their innovation, strategic importance to the market, competitive advantage and exceptional value to customers.

    Jason Bovberg, Senior Editor, Windows IT Pro

  • The custom application, using TrueDBGrid that the ComponentOne support department provided me works like a charm! The behavior is *exactly* what we need, and exactly what I was unable to create on my own. Our task now is to incorporate this code model into our production application currently in development, which I am confident we can do very easily. Needless to say, ComponentOne has saved us from a huge rewrite, and that is a big relief. Thank you, ComponentOne!

    Barry Marcus, Senior Developer, Inspherion, Inc.

  • You have an employee on your help desk that was beyond fantastic in helping with an issue. He was extremely professional, very tolerant and understanding, and most important exact with his responses. Please route a copy of this message to ALL of his administration, his boss, his boss’s boss, and all the way up the line. Oh, you should give him a raise so he doesn't go somewhere else, he's a keeper!
