RemObjects SDK and Data Abstract in Visual Studio 11

“Native” integration for RemObjects SDK and Data Abstract in Visual Studio 11 is coming along nicely.

The IDE integration has been made independent from the .NET product, and now gets offered up for the Delphi (Visual Studio 11 and only on Windows 8 or later) and Java (Visual Studio 2012 and 11) product installers as well; the former to support JavaScript Metro clients, the latter to support Oxygene for Java.

The re-theming is also happening, with menu and toolbar glyphs and project templates getting adjusted to the new colorless Visual Studio 11 theme, as shown in the screenshot below (click to view full size).

As of now, the icons in Solution Explorer are driven by the file type icons registered for Windows Explorer, so it’s still unclear if we can theme those individually for Visual Studio 11 (without also forcing the flat look into VS2010 and Windows Explorer, which would not be good). Something we’re investigating.

Oh, and is that a Data Abstract template for Metro that you’re seeing there? Indeed it is. ;)

The RemObjects SDK template looks have also been updated; once again i’ve decided to keep a light touch of color.
