The following movie shows the EBN 1003 implementation:

The Colorable Region defines a portion of the EBN object where the EBN color is applied. The Colorable Region is defined by all points of the EBN object that are between Start and End color. Any object in the EBN, can be colorable or not-colorable, which means that the EBN color is applied or not to this region part when the color is applied to the entire EBN object. For instance, at runtime the identifier 0x1FF0000 applies blue color to all colorable parts that compose the EBN object, excluding the not-colorable objects. In other words, if your EBN shows borders, margins, shadows, ... you can specify them to keep their color when a solid color is applied to the entire EBN object.

The iCalendar format is suitable as an exchange format between applications or systems. The format is defined in terms of a MIME content type. This will enable the object to be exchanged using several transports, including but not limited to SMTP, HTTP, a file system, desktop interactive protocols such as the use of a memory-based clipboard or drag/drop interactions, point-to-point asynchronous communication, and so on.

The Event.BackColorExt = "bottom[10%+12,back=RGB(255,0,0),text=`<img>alert</img><b>Alert!`,align=0x11]" displays the alert picture and the Alert! caption as bold, on the RED background, on the bottom portion of the event (10%+12 pixels-wide from the object's client area).

03-27-2015 The following movie shows how you can generate the assembly manifest files:
An assembly manifest is an XML file that describes a side-by-side assembly. Assembly manifests describe the names and versions of side-by-side assemblies, files, and resources of the assembly, as well as the dependence of the assembly on other side-by-side assemblies. Isolated COM allows your application to use ActiveX components without having to register them. The original vision of this was to allow copy deployment of the application, but Isolated COM has many benefits. You can have a private copy of the DLL without worrying that another application will install an older or newer copy that breaks your application. Isolated COM also allows you to successfully install and run on non-Administrator accounts. Run the Exontrol's eXHelper (10.1) tool, select the control, right-click the middle / template panel, select the "Generate Assembly Manifest" item which generates the assembly manifest you can use in your application to use the component/assembly as Isolated COM.

If the new caption just change the format of the Caption property ( includes just HTML tags ), the new format is applied to the control's label and control's stack ( operators and operations ) is not altered. For instance, let's say that the control's label displays the number 78, and during the Change event your application change the Caption property to "<sha ;;0><b>" + Caption. In this case, the content of the Caption is not change, instead just the new HTML format is applied to the control's label, so operations on the calculator can continue.
*Fixed: Prevents calling the Change event recursively, if the Caption property is changed during the Change event
*Fixed: Prevents serializing the Buttons property to form's persistence, so the decimal separator is taken from the current system.
01-28-2015 ExMenu, 8.1.0.4

*Added: Event.BackgroundExt property indicates additional colors, text, patterns, images that can be displayed on the event/date's background using the EBN string format. For instance, Event.BackgroundExt = "bottom[4,back=RGB(0,0,0)],top[4,back=RGB(0,0,0)]" draws a 4-pixels wide line aligned to the top and bottom sides of the event/date. The Event.BackgroundExt = "bottom[10%+12,back=RGB(255,0,0),text=`<img>alert</img><b>Alert!`,align=0x11]" displays the alert picture and the Alert! caption as bold, on the RED background, on the bottom portion of the event/date (10%+12 pixels-wide from the object's client area). 
*Added: Event.BackgroundExtValue(Index,Property) property gets or sets a value that indicates the value of giving property for the object with indicated index. This property has effect only if the BackgroundExt property is set. The BackgroundExtValue property allows you to change programmatically, the properties of the parts that composes the EBN object. For instance, BackgroundExtValue(0,exFrameColorExt) = RGB(255,0,0) draws a red frame around the root part of the object. For instance, you can use this property to change properties ( like colors ) of the EBN without having to assign a new EBN string format 
*Tip: The EBN is a set of UI elements that are built as a tree where each element is anchored to its parent element. The BackgroundExtValue property can change properties like: exBackColorExt (element's background color, including other EBN objects), exClientExt (position/size of the element), exAnchorExt (element's alignment relative to its parent), exTextExt (associates a HTML text on the element), exTextExtWordWrap (word wrapping of the elements text), exTextExtAlignment (alignment of the element's text), exPatternExt (pattern to be shown on the element), exPatternColorExt ( color of the pattern on the element ), exFrameColorExt (color to show the border-frame on the element), exFrameThickExt (shows a thick-frame around the element), exUserDataExt (associates an extra-data with the element)
*Tip: The eXButtons's builder WYSWYG tool provides the To String field, that indicates the EBN string format that can be used by BackgroundExt/BackgroundExtValue properties.
