Will SlideUI controls be available in design-time?
Yes. All controls are available from the Visual Studio toolbox in design-time. This was one of our major goals when creating SlideUI controls. Unlike most other frameworks, SlideUI controls can be used without any additional programming.
Why do controls look different in design-time versus run-time?
SlideUI uses P/Invoke to render gradients and shadows, such methods are available only on mobile devices. This is why we use a simpler drawing method for design-time and enhanced methods for run-time.

SlideUI can be used in Microsoft Visual Studio 2005, 2008 and 2010.
