The following movie shows the first look of the newly eXGraph/COM component

The Exontrol's ExGraph component is a versatile tool designed to meet the diverse needs of data visualization. With support for numerous chart types, it empowers users to represent their data in various formats, from simple line charts to complex radar charts, all within the same view. In addition to its extensive charting capabilities, our graph control offers seamless printing and print preview functionality, ensuring that users can easily generate hard copies of their charts with precision and clarity. The exGraph library lets the user changes its visual appearance using skins, each one providing an additional visual experience that enhances viewing pleasure.

The following movie shows the first look of the newly eXGraph/JS component

ExGraph/JS is a component that offers excellent graphical data visualization. It has many different types and styles of charts. Easy to use, zoom, resize, scroll, overview, legend, cursor view, owner-draw, numerous chart types to different axes in the same view, multiple views, and much more are features of the ExGraph/JS package. The ExGraph/JS is a HTML standalone-component, written in JavaScript, that uses no third-party libraries. The version of eXGraph for /COM, /NET and /WPF will be available in the near future.

The following movie shows the Predecessor/Successor feature

Tasks may have multiple predecessors or multiple successors. Before you begin establishing dependencies, it's important to understand that there are four types: Finish to Start (FS), the predecessor ends before the successor can begin, Start to Start (SS), the predecessor begins before the successor can begin, Finish to Finish (FF), the predecessor ends before the successor can end, Start to Finish (SF), the predecessor begins before the successor can end. The Predecessor/Successor columns show the bar's predecessor/successor based on its incoming/outgoing links. The control allows you to highlight the selected link, to add or remove the links based on the dependencies you type.

The following movie shows the expandable HTML caption feature

The expandable-captions allow you to expand(show)/collapse(hide) different information using "<a ;exp=>" or "<a ;e64=>" anchor ex-HTML tag. The exp/e64 field of the anchor stores the information to show once the user collapses/expands the caption. Any ex-HTML caption can be transformed to an expandable-caption, by inserting the anchor ex-HTML tag. For instance, "<solidline><b>Header</b></solidline><br>Line1<r><a ;exp=show lines>+</a><br>Line2<br>Line3" shows the Header in underlined and bold on the first line and Line1, Line2, Line3 on the rest. The "show lines" is shown instead of Line1, Line2, Line3 once the user clicks the + sign. The feature will be available for almost all components that provide the AnchorClick event, such as eXSwimlane, eXSurface, eXHTML, eXG2antt, and so on (/COM, /NET, /WPF and Javascript as well)

The following movie shows the undo/redo feature

You can undo and redo your last design actions on the surface. To undo an action, press Ctrl + Z. To redo an undone action, press Ctrl + Y. The Undo and Redo features let you remove or repeat single or multiple UI actions, but all actions must be undone or redone in the order you did or undid them you can t skip actions. For example, if you change the shape of three elements and then decide you want to undo the first change you made, you must undo all three changes. The feature will be available for eXSurface, eXSwimlane and eXSchedule /COM, /NET, /WPF and Javascript.

ExPropertiesList, 23.0.0.8
*Added: The ShowToolTip method can be used to update the object's tooltip, title or position. For instance, ShowToolTip(`<null>`,`<null>`,,`+8`,`+8`) during MouseMove event, shows the tooltip of the object moved relative to its default position.
*Fixed: The ShowToolTip() method works improperly as it may show the tooltip to a different position
*Fixed: Can't generate portrait orientation for PDF documents using the CopyTo method. For instance, the CopyTo("preview.pdf|210mm x 297mm") generates landscape instead portrait orentation.
ExStatusBar, 17.0.0.3
*Added: The <solidline> and <dotline> HTML tags support color in RGB format using the <solidline RRGGBB> or <dotline RRGGBB> syntax, which indicates the color to show the solid or dotted line
*Added: The ExecuteTemplate() method can return the value of a variable. For instance, the eXSurface's PointToPosition method uses variables by reference which is not supported in PowerBuilder. For that you can use a code like ExecuteTemplate("dim x,y;x=-1;y=-1;PointToPosition(x,y);x") that returns the x-position (surface's coordinates) of the current mouse pointer. In the same manner you can use ExecuteTemplate("dim x,y;x=-1;y=-1;PointToPosition(x,y);y") to return the y-position.
*Fixed: No control frame is shown in design-mode under MS Excel's spreadsheet

ExCascadeTree, 17.0.0.1
*NEW: Ability to specify the size to show the icons/images/check-boxes/radio-buttons within the control
*Added: ImageSize property specifies the size of control' icons/check-boxes/radio-buttons. By default, the ImageSize property is 16. The control's Images collection is cleared if the ImageSize property is changed, so it is recommended to set the ImageSize property before calling the Images method. The ImageSize property specifies the size to show the icons using the Column.HeaderImage, Items.CellImage or Items.CellImages property, the cell's check-box or radio-button using the Column.Def(exCellHasCheckBox), Column.Def(exCellHasRadioButton), Items.CellHasCheckBox, Items.CellHasRadioButton property, the default-size of <img>number[:width]</img> tags within ex-html captions, unless the width is not specified, the size of expand/collapse glyphs, sorting icon (ascending or descending), drop-down or close filter button. The ImageSize property defines the size (width/height) of the icons within the control's Images collection. For instance, if the ICO file to load includes different types the one closest with the size specified by ImageSize property is loaded by Images method. The ImageSize property does NOT change the height for the control's font(Font), sort-bar (SortBarHeight), header (HeaderHeight), item(DefaultItemHeight) or filter-bar(FilterBarHeight)

*Added: The ToolTipMargin property defines the size of the control's tooltip margins. By default, the size of the tooltip margin is "4" (horizontal and vertical). For instance, ToolTipMargin = "8" changes the horizontal and vertical margins are set to 8 pixels. ToolTipMargin = "8,4" changes the horizontal margin to 8 pixels and the vertical margin to 4 pixels.
