I’ve released version 1.2.1 of the TabStrip control. It’s a bugfix release, but also the first one that supports Windows 7.
I’ve finished two new controls: A date-time picker and a calendar. If you’re tired of the no-themes-support of the corresponding controls from Microsoft, you should give the new controls a try. Of course they also support Unicode, drag’n’drop and so on. The controls are my hobby and I’ve not much spare time, so don’t expect […]
EditControls has had another bug. The MultiLine property of the TextBox control could not be changed after control window creation – or better: the change had no effect. The control now destroys and recreates itself if this property is changed.
Bugtracker working again
I have been told that the bugtracker was broken. It refused logins with the message APPLICATION ERROR #2800 Invalid form security token. Did you submit the form twice by accident? This was a bug in Mantis 1.1.4. I have upgraded to Mantis 1.1.5 and logins are working again.
Two bugs have been found in EditControls 1.3.0. If you put a TextBox (or any other of the controls) onto a VB6 UserControl and put several instances of this UserControl onto a VB6 Form, you could set focus to the TextBox controls by pressing the TAB key, but once the TextBox had the focus, pressing […]
Why the desktop search of Windows Vista sucks
A week ago, I’ve upgraded from Windows XP SP3 to Vista x64 SP1. I already had been using Vista in early 2007 for ~2 months, but downgraded again due to its poor performance, bad driver support and many small annoyances. One thing that drove me nuts in 2007 already, is the new desktop search. While […]
ExplorerTreeView 2.0.0 RC1
The last release of ExplorerTreeView 2.0 was Beta 4 and it was 3 years ago!! Time for an update, I guess. So here’s the first release candidate of 2.0. The changelog is long – very long. The biggest changes are the Vista support and the interface for the upcoming ShellBrowser control. There are also some […]
TabStrip 1.2.0, TrackBar 1.2.1
Another day, another two releases: TabStrip 1.2.0 and TrackBar 1.2.1. While both controls have seen several bugfixes, TabStrip has also got some new features regarding OLE drag’n’drop. Of course support for Windows 98, ME and NT 4.0 has been dropped for both controls.
EditControls 1.3.0, ProgressBar 2.1.1 and StatusBar 1.1.1
Here are three more releases. EditControls 1.3.0 brings some new features for the TextBox, namely the read-only properties LastVisibleLine, LineHeight and TextLength. There’s also a new VB6 sample which demonstrates how to display line numbers. It’s not perfect, but a point to start from. ProgressBar 2.1.1 and StatusBar 1.1.1 are bugfix releases. The drop of […]
