Welcome to NiftyDotNet

Hi, all!

I'll use this blog to talk about NiftyDotNet, the component I've just released and published.

NiftyDotNet is an ASP.NET 2.0 component that allows you to round the corners of your web block elements (i.e. divs or h1) easier than ever before. It wraps the excellent javascript library Nifty Corners Cube, developed by Alessandro Fulciniti, in order to simplify its use for .NET developers.

So, instead of including javascript references and code, you'll just drag & drop the component on your webform in VS2005, set some parameters, and your borders will get rounded. Another important thing is that NiftyDotNet includes all the external files as embedded resources, so it is not necessary to add extra files to your project, the component will be enough.

NiftyDotNet is distributed in two different packages. In the first one, you'll find only the binaries (the assembly), ready to be included in your project. The second one, includes the component's source code and a demo project showing its main features. I do recommend this option if you want to know what is NiftyDotNet and how to use it.

You can find the project page at

Finally, I'd like to say that NiftyDotNet is published as GPL, so you can use or modify it according to this license, as it is described in

See you soon.
