I’ve released updates for the ExplorerListView, ExplorerTreeView, and ShellBrowserControls libraries. ExplorerListView 1.5.3 improves the performance, especially if the control is used together with the ShellListView control. ExplorerTreeView 2.4.0 adds a new possibility to identify tree view items and slightly improves performance if the control is used together with the ShellTreeView control. The ShellBrowserControls library fixes a couple of bugs and improves performance, especially for the ShellListView control in thumbnails mode.
I’ve another release for today: Version 1.0.5 of the LabelControls library fixes quite a few bugs and re-activates data-binding capabilities. Especially users of version 1.0.4 should upgrade, because 1.0.4 has not been my best release.
I’ve released version 1.8.9 of the ButtonControls library. It has the data-binding capabilities re-enabled again. I had to disable them in version 1.8.7 earlier this year after a faulty Windows update. My thanks go to Dana Seaman who made me aware of a possible workaround.
You should register the control library with regsvr32, otherwise the workaround won’t become active.
I’ve released updates to the ButtonControls, EditControls and LabelControls libraries. The LabelControls update fixes a few bugs with the WindowlessLabel control. All three releases reduce the usage of GDI resources.
I’ve released version 1.7.0 of the TabStrip control. Now it is possible to display the close button only on the active tab instead of all tabs.
I’ve released a new version of the ComboListBoxControls library. It fixes a crash that could happen under rare circumstances.
I’ve released updates of the EditControls and LabelControls libraries. EditControls 1.8.4 fixes a problem with the SelectedText properties and IsTextTruncated methods. The controls could omit the last character.
LabelControls 1.0.3 fixes a bug in the WindowedLabel control that occured only at design time and only if the control was contained in another VB6 UserControl.
I’ve released a new version of the ShellBrowserControls library. It fixes two nasty bugs in the ShellTreeView control. An update is recommended.
A new control has been born: Pager. It wraps the native SysPager control of Windows and can be used to make other controls, for instance a tool bar, scrollable.
Most VB6 developers won’t know such a control, as Microsoft has never released one for VB6. Also it is a control that is used rarely – even throughout Windows itself. But at times it can be handy.
I’ve released an update of the ToolBarControls library. It mainly prepares it for use with the upcoming Pager control.
