Pros/Cons
  • Pros

  • Simple API, support second to none, it fits seamlessly into what I want to achieve.
  • I love the sfDataGrid and the Docking Manager and the way the documentation is so clear to enable me to integrate it with my software.
  • Cons

  • In our case, the limited code-behind required is not considered a barrier.
  • Documentation has limited descriptions eg events and properties.
  • Pros

  • I use Notepad as my Integrated development environment for Python programming and it makes my programming easier. It helps in code completion too.
  • It is a free and open source, has a great number of available features, easy to edit code and support plug-ins OT be integrated.
  • Cons

  • I sometimes get lost when I open a lot of files/tabs and he opens a small arrow to manipulate the tabs. But I think it could be more flashy.
  • There is no preview pane, it is only available for microsoft, and it has been unstable at times. It did not offer all of the features I needed.
