From Russ Helfand, creator of the CSS Friendly Control Adapter Toolkit, announcing a new version! (Of course, this comes just weeks after my article about them in aspnetPRO is published :-), but I knew that was coming…)
I’m pleased to announce that we have upgraded the CSS Friendly ASP.NET 2.0 Control Adapter kit. The new release is Beta 3.
The whole kit now serves as a sample of designing markup and CSS that scales gracefully. This includes scaling of the menus, trees and forms.
All forms rendered by the adapters (think: membership controls) now implement a solution for the accesskey issue. It’s simple but incredibly effective… and totally addictive.
There are other things in beta 3 besides accessibility improvements. The TreeView adapter now restores the tree’s expansion state. That’s a huge usability improvement but more importantly it’s our first demonstration of an adapter that leverages the ASP.NET view state framework.
To get familiar with all the new features, please read the “what’s new” section of the kit’s home page at http://www.asp.net/cssadapters. Also, try out the “quick cool demos” listed in that section. They are:
