Description from the Publisher

The NOV Framework comes with complete and feature-rich set of Royalty-Free User Interface Widgets.

Nevron Open Vision (NOV) implements a complete and feature-rich set of cross-platform User Interface elements (widgets) that aims to completely eliminate the need to use any platform specific controls, that would ultimately bind your Presentation Layer to a specific platform/runtime, look-and-feel and API.

When it comes to developing enterprise level Windows, WPF, Silverlight or Mac OS X applications, the NOV UI Framework will do the job right. The UI Framework features an extensive GUI Toolkit, which consists of more than 60 UI controls (Widgets). These controls have been designed for .NET developers to easily build visually appealing, high performance, cross-platform applications, using single code-base.
