Hi,

I'm about to start my first SilverLight 3.0 application and want to settle on a controls library before I go too far. I need various things like menus, graphs and gauges.  I'm not interested in open source because I want tech. support services and want robustness. I am considering Infragistics and ComponentOne.

Can anyone suggest others for me to investigate? Price is not as important as function. I've seen a really cool menu demo on ComponentOne: the Amazon.com demo.

If you have a preference, I'd love to hear why.

Thanks,
newbieweb

Ohh .. sorry I forgot to answer Why ? Actually we have been building applications on silverlight since last 6 months. The major need we had was to have a navigation functionality. And Telerik gave it all ready.


Another was the Treeview control which helped us a lot.

Thanks

You are welcome.

Good that you like it. I am sure you will enjoy using their controls. Their support is good too. In one control we had to do some extensions, we went back to those guys and they pointed into the right direction.

Good luck.
