Animation 2.6.0

I’ve released an update of the Animation control. It comes with new events for extended mouse button clicks and uses less GDI resources.

Be aware that the events for the extended mouse buttons depend on the mouse driver configuration. So if they are not raised at all, this is more likely because of the mouse driver than because of potential bugs in the control library.

EditControls 1.9.0, ExplorerListView 1.6.0, ExplorerTreeView 2.5.0

Happy new year to everyone!

I’ve released updates for the EditControls, ExplorerListView, and ExplorerTreeView ActiveX control libraries. They come with new events for mouse wheel rotation and extended mouse button clicks. I’ve also restored data-binding capabilities and fixed a tiny GDI resource leak.

ExplorerListView 1.5.3, ExplorerTreeView 2.4.0, ShellBrowserControls 1.4.4

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.

ButtonControls 1.8.9

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.

ButtonControls 1.8.8, EditControls 1.8.5, LabelControls 1.0.4

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.

EditControls 1.8.4, LabelControls 1.0.3

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.
