03-28-2012 ExG2antt, 5.4.0.2
*NEW: The 'in' function in computing formulas increases significantly the time to evaluate it. For instance, if you have the formula such us 'value = 1 or value = 2 or value = 22 or value = 45 or value = 12', ... you can have the 'value in (1, 2, 22, 45, 12)'. In other words, if the set contains about 1000 elements for instance, the evaluator takes max 8 checking to determine if the specified value fits the set, else requires 1000 checking is required to verify each or condition in the sequence.
*NEW: The 'switch' function similar with 'in' function retrieves the value being found in the collection, or a default value if the element is not found. The first element in the collection is the result being returned by 'switch' function when the value is not found in the collection, else the 'switch' returns the value itself. All elements in the collection MUST be constant values. For instance, the "value switch ('not found', 11, 23, 45, 129, 123,99)" means that if the value is 33, the 'not found' string is returned, while if the value is 45, the switch returns 45.
*NEW: The 'case()' function includes any number of case instances. A 'case' instance may contains a statement that is executed once the value is found in the 'case' collection. The 'case' unary operator gets the value being specified by respective statement or the value itself. For instance, the 'int(value) case (1 : value + 1 ; 2 : value * 2)' specifies that if the value is 1 the statement returns 2, while if the value is 2, the statement returns 4, and for any other value it returns the value itself. Also the 'case()' can be used with 'switch' as for instance "%0 switch ('not found',11,22,33,44,55) case (11 : %0 + %1 ; 22 : %1 * 1.19; 33 : len(str(%0)))" indicates that if the value in the column 0 is 11, the result will be the sum between first column and second column, else if the value is 22 the result is the second column value multiplied by 1.19, else if the value is 33 the return is the length of the value in the first cell, if the value is 44 or 55, the result is 44 or 55, while for any other value the result will be 'not found'. The 'in', 'switch' and 'case()' increases significantly the speed to evaluate constant values instead using 'and', 'or' operators to build complicated formulas that could be time consuming.
*Added: The 'case()' function available for computing properties such us: Bar.ShowHistogramValues, Chart.CondInsideZoom, Column.ComputedField, Column.FormatColumn, ConditionalFormat.Expression, Level.FormatLabel, Items.ItemNonworkingUnits
*Added: The Items.ItemBar(exBarKeepWorkingCount) property specifies whether the bar in the histogram uses the Items.ItemBar(exBarWorkingCount) value instead the duration of the bar ItemBar(exBarDuration). The Bar.HistogramType should be exHistOverAllocation
*Added: The 'in' and 'switch' function available for computed properties. For instance, a in (b,c,d,e) returns a Boolean value that indicates whether the a is b or c or d or e, and so on. The elements of the collection should be constants. The 'in' function is available for properties such us: Bar.ShowHistogramValues, Chart.CondInsideZoom, Column.ComputedField, Column.FormatColumn, ConditionalFormat.Expression, Level.FormatLabel, Items.ItemNonworkingUnits
*Fixed: The Items.RemoveAllItems method releases the occupied memory too.
*Fixed: The ItemBar(exBarWorkingCount) property never returns if the ItemNonWorkingUnit property indicates a non-repetitive formula. For instance, shortdate(value) = #7/14/2009#
03-28-2012 ExSkinBox, 6.0.0.1
*Added: "Property let procedure not defined and property get procedure did not return an object" runtime-error '451' occurs in VB if calling to assign a picture using its reference when using the Set .HTMLPicture statement.

For instance, the MsgBox1.Out "Aka", , , , Str(Me.hWnd), Str(Me.hWnd) displays the message box centered relative to the form.
*Added: If the X and Y parameters of the Input method are of a string type and indicates a valid window handle, the input box is displayed centered relative to specified window. For instance, the MsgBox1.Input "Aka", , , , Str(Me.hWnd), Str(Me.hWnd) displays the input box centered relative to the form.

03-05-2012 ExGantt, 6.1.0.5
*NEW: Ability to specify padding for cells in the column
*NEW: The 'in' function in computing formulas increases significantly the time to evaluate it. For instance, if you have the formula such us 'value = 1 or value = 2 or value = 22 or value = 45 or value = 12', ... you can have the 'value in (1, 2, 22, 45, 12)'. In other words, if the set contains about 1000 elements for instance, the evaluator takes max 8 checking to determine if the specified value fits the set, else requires 1000 checking is required to verify each or condition in the sequence.
*NEW: The 'case()' function includes any number of case instances. A 'case' instance may contains a statement that is executed once the value is found in the 'case' collection. The 'case' unary operator gets the value being specified by respective statement or the value itself. For instance, the 'int(value) case (1 : value + 1 ; 2 : value * 2)' specifies that if the value is 1 the statement returns 2, while if the value is 2, the statement returns 4, and for any other value it returns the value itself. Also the 'case()' can be used with 'switch' as for instance "%0 switch ('not found',11,22,33,44,55) case (11 : %0 + %1 ; 22 : %1 * 1.19; 33 : len(str(%0)))" indicates that if the value in the column 0 is 11, the result will be the sum between first column and second column, else if the value is 22 the result is the second column value multiplied by 1.19, else if the value is 33 the return is the length of the value in the first cell, if the value is 44 or 55, the result is 44 or 55, while for any other value the result will be 'not found'. The 'in', 'switch' and 'case()' increases significantly the speed to evaluate constant values instead using 'and', 'or' operators to build complicated formulas that could be time consuming.
*NEW: The 'switch' function similar with 'in' function retrieves the value being found in the collection, or a default value if the element is not found. The first element in the collection is the result being returned by 'switch' function when the value is not found in the collection, else the 'switch' returns the value itself. All elements in the collection MUST be constant values. For instance, the "value switch ('not found', 11, 23, 45, 129, 123,99)" means that if the value is 33, the 'not found' string is returned, while if the value is 45, the switch returns 45.
*Added: Column.Def(exCellPaddingLeft) specifies the left padding (space) of the cells within the column. The similar options are: exCellPaddingRight, exCellPaddingTop and exCellPaddingBottom to control the right, top and bottom padding.
*Added: Column.Def(exHeaderPaddingLeft) specifies the left padding (space) of the column's header. The similar options are: exHeaderPaddingRight, exHeaderPaddingTop and exHeaderPaddingBottom to control the right, top and bottom padding.
*Added: The 'in', 'switch' and 'case()' functions available for properties such us: Column.ComputedField, Column.FormatColumn, ConditionalFormat.Expression

The following picture shows the Padding support, which will be included:

Padding support - defines the space between the element border and the element content. The padding clears an area around the content (inside the border) of an element, and does not affect the element's background color. The Column.Def(exCellPaddingLeft), exCellPaddingRight, exCellPaddingTop and exCellPaddingBottom defines in pixels the left, right, top and bottom padding (space) of the cells within the column. The Column.Def(exHeaderPaddingLeft), exHeaderPaddingRight, exHeaderPaddingTop and exHeaderPaddingBottom defines the padding ( spaces ) of the column's caption in the control's header.

Ability to scroll the control's content with no usage of scrollbar, for touch screens or tablet PCs...

Ability to smoothly scroll the control's content. Click a row, and start dragging up or down, and the control's content is moved up or down. The feature could be useful for touch screens or tablet PCs, but works on desktop machines too. The scrolling is performed as you would do a Drag And Drop operation. The scrolling is performed pixel by pixel for a smooth motion.
