ASP.NET - Infragistics controls vs. microsoft controls

Asked By Anandh Ramanujam on 23-May-11 08:22 AM

im new to infragistics controls.

I want to know that why we go for third party controls like infragistics.

What we cannot do with microsoft .net controls which can be done with infragistics.

Any performance with using infra, or more advanced features than ms controls..

Please help me in this regard.

Control suites like Infragistics and Telerik provide additional functionality. Sometimes you can provide this functionality by overriding intrinsic controls, and sometimes not. That is all.

For rapid development of our UI Controls,
 These company who provides 3rd party controls like infra and dev express, focuses on windows ui control development.

 They provide more advance and easier controls compared to what we can develop, so we focused more on the application development. 

3rd party controls like infra is a lot more easier to use and advnace compared to the controls that are included in the .net package. It has a lot of features that gives you more control on ui development. 

Compatibility issues on different OS is not a problem with infra. because it can support themes
