SL Corporation Announces Support for Microsoft Windows Vista

SL Corporation has announced that version 3.0 of SL-GMS Developer for .NET and SL-GMS Custom Editor for .NET now support Microsoft Windows Vista. These two SL products for Microsoft .NET provide a development package for use in manufacturing and other monitoring and control environments where very specific dynamic graphical content is required to represent real-time processes. SL-GMS Developer for .NET contains SL-GMSDraw which is a graphical editor designed to create visually rich representations of control systems. Applications for the desktop or web can then be built from within Microsoft Visual Studio using custom SL-GMS .NET controls that can load these displays and animate them with live data and define interactive behavior.

In many process control environments it is a hard requirement that graphical views of control systems can be created and maintained by engineers who are not programmers. SL-GMS Custom Editor is specifically designed so that control system vendors can create their own editors to add specialized functionality and connectivity to applicable data. These customized editors facilitate the rapid development of user interfaces and are a critical tool that internal services staff use to provide timely turn-key solutions. The benefits of the flexibility and rapid customizability of monitoring and control interfaces are often passed on to their customer base so that they can maintain their own interfaces as control processes are modified and expanded.

SL has been working with the pre-release candidates of Microsoft Windows Vista during the past year so that support could be provided shortly after the long awaited release. With version 3.0, these SL products have been validated to work well within the Visual Studio 2005 environment including Microsoft Windows Vista extensions. Applications built in this environment have also been validated as Microsoft Windows Vista compatible.
