Welcome to Exontrol

Exontrol is devoted to create innovative user interface components for Windows applications, on /COM, /NET or /WPF platforms, since 1999. "eXontrol" comes from e(s)pecial (c)ontrol, where sc makes the X. Software development never stops. Neither do we. Our components are and will continue to be cutting edge development tools that adapt to the needs of our customers and to the changing software development environment. On this site you find components/tools/products/samples that are used in programming languages such as VB, VB.NET, VBA, C++, C#, X++, VFP, Access, Excel, Word, HTML, Delphi, Smalltalk, uniPaas (eDeveloper), Clarion, Dynamics AX, Dynamics NAV, xBasic, Visual Objects, Visual Dataflex, PowerBuilder, LabVIEW, Xbase++, AutoIt, Power++, FORTH, and so on...

The following movie shows the eXG2antt's ItemBarEx feature:

The ItemBarEx property is an extension of ItemBar property, that allows changing the properties for a set of bars, using expressions. For instance, you can move all bars of type "Task", or you can change the color for all checked items, or you can change the percent for selected bars, and so on. For instance ItemBarEx("itemisselected",exBarColor) = RGB(255,0,0), changes the color for all bars found in selected items, or ItemBarEx("itemisselected and itembar(exBarName) like `Task*`",exBarPercent100) = "value + 1", adds 1% (percent) to each "Task" bar found in the selected items.

latest changes and additions

*Fixed: Prevents showing the control's Picture on dragging items while AutoDrag property is set
*Fixed: Shows the grid-lines / background-alternate colors for non-items part of the control while the user drags items using the AutoDrag property.
*Fixed: Can't indent the dragging item(s) when it hovers the last visible item in the list, while the AutoDrag property is exAutoDragPositionAny
*Fixed: "Visual C++ Runtime Error!" occurs if using the <fgcolor> or <bgcolor> with no indicating the color. Correct is <fgcolor RRGGBB>, instead <fgcolor>
*Added: TemplatePut method defines inside variables for the next Template/ExecuteTemplate call.
*Fixed: Prevents showing the control's view in design mode, while running on FORTH system ( /COM version )
*Fixed: Prevents a memory leak when loading icons, pictures, from BASE64 encoded strings (Images method, HTMLPicture picture).
*Added: Exontrol.G2Host component to the controls list.
*Added: Increases the width of the Pos column in the Questions panel.
*NEW: The Expression of the ConditionalFormat/ComputedField/FormatColumn supports %C0, %C1, .... which indicates the caption of the cell as displayed, while the %0, %1, gets the value of the cell. The cell's value may be different than what the cell displays as a string. For instance, let's say a cell display HTML format. The %0 returns the html format including the HTML tags, while %C0 returns the cell's content as string without HTML tags.
*Added: The Items.FormatCell or Column.FormatColumn property supports %C0, %C1, ... which indicates the content of the cell as string, on the column with the index 0, 1, and so on... For instance the, "%C0 + %C1" concatenates the first two cells, which is similar with a computed field per cell. In other words, you can have computed field per cells, using the Items.FormatCell, not only using the Column.ComputedField property which is applied to the entire column.
*Fixed: The pictures of a disabled item are not visible or shown at a different position, while the cursor hovers the item. 
*Fixed: Resizes the locked columns to the left, while RightToLeft property is True (CountLockedColumns property).
*Fixed: Closes the drag and drop image before the OLEDragDrop event occurs. For instance, a MessageBox during the OLEDragDrop event will keep showing the control's drag and drop picture ( Background(exDragDropAfter) property, /COM version )
