No this is not a get rid of Codecharge Studio statement but Yes Software are planning version 3.0 and I am asking people constructive assessments of codecharge versus alternatives.

Bill Gates once said that one of the keys to success was to always watch your competition, so I want to kick off a discussion where you or the company you are associated with have assessed alternative products and seen features that wish were in Codecharge Studio.

Please don't let this degenerate into what is wrong with CCS - please provide positives that could enhance CCS.

I understand that Yes Software will probably never implement any of the suggestions but I hope the process will assist them in making the product better.

Example. I would love to see Yes Software incorporate the following visual query builder into CCS.

Or to be able to have a Report writer attached to the product

or

Interested to hear other comments on how Codecharge stacks up to products like , etc.

A debugger is needed and how about some pretty charts.

The number one thing they could do is release a good SDK. There are a lot
of bright people out there who could generate lots of components which would
really produce a groundswell of CCS activity. As it currently stands,
integrating things like HTML editors, calendars, reportwriters is not at all
straightforward or modular.

Next on my list would be to clean up the IDE - it is still a bit quirky
although now quite stable. It just about drives me insane - the way the
insertion point jumps around while I attempt to scroll the design panel
(and the panel seems to have a mind of its own about where it wants to
scroll). The handling/maintaining of focus is better, but also still needs
some work. I understand the "limitations of Microsoft's DHTML editor"
argument, but this does not seem to be an issue with (for example) Visual
Studio. So, although they are probably obscure, there apparently are things
that can improve behavior - probably a bunch of nasty owner-drawn and
sub-classed-object hacks.

- Designer - Too expensive for startup developer, look nice.
- ASPMaker - Not support .NET at this time, cheap easy to use but limited.

I am sure there are a few more search in google for more.

I think CCS is good enough for most developers, more features added would make this program shine even better like report add-on wizard.
