All possibilities of WinAPI into .NET Framework

What is VistaUIFramework

VistaUI is a framework based on WinForms and .NET Framework for developing .NET Applications using Vista and 7 features, like arrow-splitted buttons, command links, vista-style controls and etc.

No P/Invoke or WinAPI knowledge required

Stop trying to learn Windows API to learn p/invoke to make vista controls. Let VistaUI do the work for you.

Windows Vista and later features for WinForms

.NET Framework and Windows Forms does not replace Windows API at 100%, not even the visual styles. The lack of features is one of the biggest cons. Get the most out of Windows by using VistaUIFramework instead of learning P/Invoke.

The Windows Vista and 7 look into your program

Make your application look like a Windows Vista/7 program. You won't stop looking at your program.

Don't spend your time developing custom controls

Developing custom controls like CommandLink, SplitButton or ProgressBar is time-consuming and delays the release date of any project. Use VistaUIFramework instead of reinventing the wheel and start developing.
