About OAC (Orientation Aware Control)

Today's increasingly competitive mobile applications market imposes some unique challenges. Perhaps the most distinctive aspect of mobile development with regards to traditional desktop development is the need to support an ever increasing range of device form factors.

For expert mobile developers it's no news that designing mobile applications that support multiple form factors, resolutions and screen orientations is a non-trivial, time-consuming and challenging endeavor. It's also generally evident that the built-in docking and anchoring features in .NET Compact Framework v2.0 is far from being sufficient.

The Orientation Aware Control allows designing and coding a single control or form with multiple layouts or skins that are automatically applied at run-time (and design-time) according to the available form factor, resolution and orientation. Its outstanding Visual Studio forms and user control designer integration and zero-code adaptive UI behavior make the Orientation Aware Control a must-have companion for any mobile shop targeting multiple devices, bringing back the productivity you need to focus on growing your business.

Microsoft patterns & practices jointly with Clarius Consulting brought you the basics through the Mobile Client Software Factory and its Orientation Aware Control. Based on that solid foundation, Clarius Consulting is taking the solution even farther, providing many highly requested new features, such as Pocket PC 2003 and Windows CE 5.0 platforms support, significantly smaller application disk footprint, etc., as well as enterprise-grade premium support.
