Welcome to EONTROL
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 DataContext/DataSource support for /WPF components:

The DataContext/DataSource support of the control allows you to use the data-binding feature of the /WPF environment for our /WPF ex-controls. The DataSource property specifies the sub-set of DataContext the control should get data from. The gantt components (eXG2antt/WPF and eXGantt/WPF) provides the DataTaskStart, DataTaskEnd to specify the name of the fields within the current data-context to specify the margins for inner tasks. The DataTaskStart property should refer a property of DateTime type, while the DataTaskEnd could be of DateTime type which specifies the end-margin of the task, or of a numeric-value that specifies the length of the associated task-bar. Currently, the DataContext/DataSource support is available for the following /WPF components: eXG2antt, eXGantt, eXGrid, eXTree, eXList, eXComboBox and eXPivot, but we will extend the list.

The following movie shows the FilterBar extension:

The exontrol's filterbar extension allows you to filter items using interactively UI drop down panels. Also, it allows you to filter items as you type. You can let the user to filter for some or all columns, hidden or visible, by patterns that uses wild characters, by date, image, check, and so on. The label of the filterbar-extension allows using expressions so you are free to design it the way how you want to show or behave.

The following moves shows the newly Cross-Link feature:

The following movie shows how intersection of links on the surface, can display crosses, so a link from an element to another can be clear seen. The ShowExtendedLinksEnum.exShowCrossLinksRect flag in ShowLinks property, expands the junction / intersection of two or more links, with a rectangle that cross the linkst, the ShowExtendedLinksEnum.exShowCrossLinksTriangle flag in ShowLinks property, expands the junction / intersection of two or more links, with a triangle that cross the links, the ShowExtendedLinksEnum.exShowCrossLinksRect and ShowExtendedLinksEnum.exShowCrossLinksTriangle flags in ShowLinks property, expands the junction / intersection of two or more links, with a rectangle for horizontal links, and a triangle for vertical links ( mixed ).

The following moves shows the newly feature Columns floating-bar to show/hide columns:

The ColumnsFloatBarVisible property of ColumnsFloatBarVisibleEnum type, retrieves or sets a value that indicates whether the the columns float bar is visible or hidden. The ColumnsFloatBarVisibleEnum.exColumnsFloatBarVisibleIncludeCheckColumns associates a check-box for each column. The Columns floating bar displays all columns with AllowDragging property on True, and the check's box state indicates whether the column is visible or hidden. You can show or hide a column by clicking the associated check box or by pressing the SPACE key. As previously, the user can drag or drop any column in the Columns floating bar and the associated check-box is updated based on the column's Visible property. The feature will be available for the eXTree, eXGrid, eXGantt and eXG2antt, /COM, /NET and /WPF.

The following movie shows the newly AttachTemplate feature:

The AttachTemplate features allows you to attach a x-script to the component. The AttachTemplate executes x-script code ( including events ), from a string, file or a safe array of bytes. This feature allows you to load the control's visual appearance and behavior, without having to write any line of code. The x-script code can save EBNs, icons, pictures into BASE64 encoded strings, and so everything can be put into a single file, that should be invoked by AttachTemplate method. This feature allows you to run any x-script code for any configuration of the component (/COM, /NET or /WPF).

The following movie shows 10 tips and tricks that you may not known about exontrols:

Right click the scroll bar, jumps directly to the position. For instance, right-click on down vertical button jumps to the end of the list. Shift + left click on the column's header performs multiple columns sorting. Ctrl + double left click on the divider between columns ( as you would resize the column ) resizes all columns to fit its content, Keep the Ctrl key down while tooltip is shown, to stay visible for a longer time. Pressing the [CTRL + ] * of the numeric pad expands recursively all items / the item. F3 key finds the next occurrence of the current incremental search. Ctrl + rotate the wheel, scrolls horizontally the list, and so on. We hope you to enjoy it.

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.

The following movie shows newly Gantt's Export to HTML feature:

We would like to present the gantt's Export to HTML feature that allows you to generate HTML documents from the control's content. The HTML document includes the CSS layout. The HTML document includes almost all tabular data, including internal built-in HTML format, visual appearance for rows, columns, cells or tasks/bars. For instance, you can generate the HTML text using a code like Export("htm"), that will returns the HTML text you can paste or send to a Web Browser. In the same way, you can directly create the HTM file, by calling a code like Export("c:\temp\export.htm"). The Export method can also export the control's data in CSV format as well. Here's how the HTML format is generated.

Apr24
ExG2antt, 18.1.0.8
*Added: Editor.FindItem method can search for captions, case insensitive, if the caption in the Value parameter starts with > character ( greater ) For instance, Editor.FindItem("One") looks for the exactly caption "One", while if using as Editor.FindItem(">One"), it searches case-insensitive for the word "one". In case the value is not found, empty value is returned.
*Fixed: The control can fail if drag and drop an item while the control is in group-view mode, and the chart displays overlaid-bars.
*Fixed: Sometimes, a GPF may occur if calling the Items.RemoveLink during an event.
*Fixed: Improper validation of the chart section pf the control. when the user vertically scrolls the control if the Chart.PaneWidth(False) property is 0
ExGrid, 15.0.0.6
*Added: The FilterPromptEnum.exFilterPromptStartWith or exFilterPromptEndWith is not applied for all columns ( FilterBarPromptColumns property is -1 )
*Fixed: Prevents showing the default appearance of the exVSUpper/exHSUpper/exVSLower/exHSLower, if the exVSBack/exHSBack is set
*Fixed: Apparently, The Column.FilterType property returns uninitialized value, and so, a column of DateType can not be filtered using the UI.
*Fixed: The top-locked items portion of the control shows in black (Items.LockedItemCount(TopAlignment) property)
*Fixed: Resets the column's filter if the user empties the Filter For field a drop down numeric filter ( Column.FilterType property is exNumeric )
Apr23
ExCalendar, 15.0.0.2
*Added: lpad keyword (available for properties that support expressions) , as a lpad b, pads the value of a to the left with b padding pattern.
*Added: rpad keyword (available for properties that support expressions), as a rpad b, pads the value of a to the right with b padding pattern. For instance, 12 lpad "____" generates the string "12__".
*Added: concat keyword (available for properties that support expressions), as a concat b concatenates the a (as string) for b times. For instance, "x" concat 5, generates the string "xxxxx"
*Fixed: The last week(s) in December, may display 53, 54, instead 1 ( ShowWeeks as True, DisplayWeekNumberAs as exSimpleWeekNumber )
ExContextMenu, 11.2.0.3
*Added: The Version property for /NET or /WPF version returns more information about the component/assembly/file.
*Fixed: An ICO file shows as 18x18 instead of 16x16 pixels if it is loaded using the HTMLPicture method.
*Fixed: In xBase++, the context menu is shown at position 0, 0 once the Select method is called.
*Fixed: "Error executing code: FormActiveXControl (data source), method ... called with invalid parameters" on Dynamics AX environment is fired, if the application handles events with parameters passed by reference. On X++ you should use the Event event and EventParams method to handle this exception. The X++ is not able to handle the events with parameters passed by reference.
