We have exciting news! A new release of Thinfinity VirtualUI is out, now with support for HTML5 Web Components!
So what HTML5 Web Components is about and why is so important for your VirtualUI-based application?
Do we need to explain anything about reusable software components? You develop in C#, Vb.Net, Visual Basic, Delphi, etc, so you’ve been using them for years!
HTML5 Web Components is a specification that brings to the Web Browser the concept of reusable components, in this case made of HTML+Scripting, to create new HTML elements. So, you currently use the standard <div> elements, <input> elements, etc. and with the Web Components specification you can build custom elements like <my-clock>, <google-map>, <qr>, etc.
But what about VirtualUI? Now in this release, you’ll be able to embed Web Components in your Windows app, replacing a standard Windows control.
Let’s see an example. Suppose you want to stream video with native performance. Now you can replace your local windows media component with a native HTML5 video component. Videos will stream directly to the web browser and you’ll get native performance!
