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 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 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 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.

changes and additions for 2018, so far

04-18-2018 ExSwimLane, 13.0.0.4
*Added: DefArrange(exDefArrangeAlign) property specifies the alignment of the elements relative to incoming/outgoing elements during the Arrange operation. The DefArrange(exDefArrangeAlign) property is applied to elements that allow alignment, not all the elements will be aligned.
*Added: The expression properties support `dpi`, `dpix` and `dpiy` constants that returns the current DPI setting on x/y scale. For instance, the "value * dpi" returns the value if the DPI setting is 100%, or value * 1.5 in case, the DPI setting is 150%
*Added: The Handle parameter of Images method can be a string that specifies the ICO file to be loaded. The ICO file format is an image file format for computer icons in Microsoft Windows. ICO files contain one or more small images at multiple sizes and color depths, such that they may be scaled appropriately. For instance, Images("e:\working\sync.ico") method adds the sync.ico file to the control's Images collection.
04-18-2018 ExCalcEdit, 10.0.0.2
*Added: Export property exports the control's content as text, including the results.
*Added: FormatTotalResult property specifies the HTML format to display the result of a Total line. For instance, FormatTotalResult property "<r><b><font ;12><fgcolor=808080>%%</fgcolor>" displays the Total result on the right side of the control, with a larger font.
*Added: FormatSubTotalResult property specifies the HTML format to display the result of a SubTotal line. For instance, FormatSubTotalResult property "<r><b><font ;12><fgcolor=808080>%%</fgcolor>" displays the SubTotal result on the right side of the control, with a larger font.
*Added: The %l% field in any FormatResult, FormatTotalResult or FormatSubTotalResult, displays the result using the current regional setting. For instance it displays the number using grouping.

*Added: The Event(EventID) event occurs once the control fires an event (available for /COM version only)
*Added: Ability to use or load PNG, TIFF or WMF picture on the control's background ( Picture property for /COM version ) , using the LoadPicture predefined function of the Template property. For instance, the [.Template = "Picture = LoadPicture(`E:\picture.png`)"] OR [.Picture = .ExecuteTemplate("loadpicture(`E:\picture.png`)")] loads the PNG picture on the control's background.
*Added: Parameters By Reference support for x-script ( Template, TemplateDef, ExecuteTemplate property of /COM version )
04-16-2018 ExplorerTree, 12.0.0.8
*Added: Improves the performance to load data into the control.
*Added: The Version property includes the SpecialBuild number of the assembly so it provides information like Major.Minor.Build.Revison.SpecialBuild.Type...
*Added: The Background(exColumnsPositionSign) specifies the visual appearance for the position sign between columns, when the user changes the position of the column by drag and drop. By default, the Background(exColumnsPositionSign) property is 0, which indicates that the default position sign is shown when the user change the column's position by drag and drop.
*Fixed: Prevents "Do you want to save ..." / "Save changes...' input box, when the user opens the form in design mode, and close it.
04-11-2018 ExPropertiesList, 13.0.0.3
*Added: The Version property includes the SpecialBuild number of the assembly so it provides information like Major.Minor.Build.Revison.SpecialBuild.Type...

04-11-2018 ExPrint, 15.0.0.1
*NEW: Ability to display differentiate captions / extra captions on different pages
*Added: The Caption property and the Caption parameter of the ExtraCaption method supports expressions, that can defines the HTML caption of each page based on different fields such as index of the page, total number of pages, the index of the object being printed / previewed, the index of the page relative to the object being printed, and the number of relative pages. If the Caption's expression is not valid, the Caption itself is displayed as HTML, be replacing the <%page%> and <%count%> fields with the current page, and number of pages. The Caption property / parameter supports the following keywords: object (indicates the index of the object being printed), opages ( defines the number of pages the current object is being previewed / printed ), opage ( indicates the relative-index of the page being printed / previewed ), pages ( defines the total number of pages being previewed / printed ) and page ( which specifies the index of the current page, from the total number of pages ). The object, opages and opage fields are useful in case you are printing multiple-objects at the same time, using the PrintExts method. For instance, PrintExts = Array(Grid1, Grid2) specifies that two controls should be sent to the printer, and in this case the object will indicate 0 for the Grid1, and 1 for the Grid2. For instance, Caption = "`<b>` + ( object array (`<s>first-grid`,`<i>second-grid`) )" defines an expression-caption that displays the caption "first-grid" in bold and strikeout, for the first object of the PrintExts, and displays the "second-grid" in bold and italic, for the second object of the PrintExts method. For instance, ExtraCaption("logo","page mod 2 ? `` : `<img>logo</img>`") adds a logo picture on every second-page.
04-09-2018 ExG2antt, 18.0.0.2
*Added: Improves performance to display the chart while it shows links. This is applicable to move / resize tasks, adding links, or scrolling the chart's content ( Chart.ShowLinks property )

*NEW: Support for EBN 1004 version ( DPI-Aware support ).
*Added: The coordinates of the CP clause of the Skin parameter of VisualAppearance.Add method can be followed by a D character, which indicates the value according to the current DPI settings. For instance, "CP:1 -2 -2 2 2", copies the EBN with the identifier 1, and displays it on a 2-pixels wider rectangle no matter of the DPI settings, while "CP:1 -2D -2D 2D 2D" displays it on a 2-pixels wider rectangle if DPI settings is 100%, and on on a 3-pixels wider rectangle if DPI settings is 150%.
*Added: The expression properties support `dpi`, `dpix` and `dpiy` constants that returns the current DPI setting on x/y scale. For instance, the "value * dpi" returns the value if the DPI setting is 100%, or value * 1.5 in case, the DPI setting is 150%
04-05-2018 ExMiller, 10.0.0.2
*Added: Shows the drop down filter and tooltip panels to the nearest monitor relative to the cursor position.
*Added: Clicking the cascade column's split bar while SHIFT + CTRL key combination is pressed, divides the client area in equal parts/views ( refine the FitCascadeColumns property )
*Added: The Background(exColumnsPositionSign) specifies the visual appearance for the position sign between columns, when the user changes the position of the column by drag and drop. By default, the Background(exColumnsPositionSign) property is 0, which indicates that the default position sign is shown when the user change the column's position by drag and drop.
*Fixed: Sometimes, can't select by drag items if the ColumnAutoResize property is False
04-04-2018 ExComboBox, 12.0.0.3
*Added: The LabelColumnIndex property specifies a different column (index) to be displayed on the control's label, while the SingleEdit property is True.

*Fixed: Prevents closing the tool when the user presses the ESC key
03-28-2018 ExTree, 13.0.0.1
*NEW: MSAA, UI Automation, IAccessible support. 
*Added: Microsoft Active Accessibility (MSAA) is designed to help Assistive Technology (AT) products interact with standard and custom user interface (UI) elements of an application (or the operating system), as well as to access, identify, and manipulate an application's UI elements. AT products work with MSAA enabled applications in order to provide better access for individuals who have physical or cognitive difficulties, impairments, or disabilities.
*Fixed: The OLEStartDrag event is fired differentially based on the SingleSel and AutoDrag properties as follows: True/=0, click anywhere on the item and move the mouse, True/<>0 click on item's caption and move the mouse ( click anywhere excepts the item's caption performs the AutoDrag operation, like moving the item's position, scrolling and so on ), False/=0, click anywhere on the item and wait for a short period of time ( 256 ms, click and move performs select by dragging ), False/<>0 click on item's caption and wait for a short period of time ( 256 ms, click and move performs select by dragging, click anywhere excepts the item's caption and wait for a short period of time, performs the AutoDrag operation, like moving the item's position, scrolling and so on )
*Fixed: Columns.Clear method does not release the column until the control is destroyed ( memory leak if clear and adding columns several times, /NET and /WPF versions only )
03-28-2018 ExSplitBar, 12.0.0.1
*Added: DBase Plus samples
*Added: ExtendedContainerWnd property specifies the list of window class names of parents added by the extended control. By default, the ExtendedContainerWnd property is "Afx:*\AfxWnd*\AfxWnd*". This property is available for /COM only.
03-26-2018 ExSchedule, 13.0.0.1
*NEW: Ability to re-evaluate the expressions of DefaultEventLongLabel, DefaultEventShortLabel, Event.LongLabel, Event.ShortLabel and so on, as HTML, if they are prefixed by the "<%=%>" sequence. Shortly, an expression that starts with "<%=%>" is evaluated and its result is displayed in HTML format. For instance, the DefaultEventLongLabel property on "<%=%><%=%5%><br><%=%256%>", forces the expression to be re-evaluated and to display the new caption by applying new HTML tags found. By default, the %5 indicates the event's Caption property, so if it contains HTML tags they will be applied as is, instead displaying them as plain text. Instead, if the DefaultEventLongLabel property "<%=%5%><br><%=%256%>" displays on the first line the Caption of the Event, and on the second line the event's Start and End margins in short format. In case the Caption property includes HTML tags they will not be applied, as they will be displayed as plain text.
*Fixed: The exCalendarBorderLineColor value of BackgroundPartEnum type switched from 22 to 26
*Fixed: The exCalendarCommentDate value of BackgroundPartEnum type switched from 23 to 27

03-19-2018 ExPivot, 13.0.0.3
*NEW: Ability to export values on multiple lines, by quoting them, when Export method is performed
*Added: The Export method could save the control's content in ANSI or UNICODE format, based on the forth parameter of the Options argument. For instance, Export( Destination,"|||ansi") saves the control's content to destination in ANSI format. If the forth parameter is missing, the configuration of the control specifies how the Export saves the data, such as the ANSI version of the control will save as ANSI, and the UNICODE configuration as UNICODE format. If the control's Version property includes the UNICODE suffix, it indicates that the control is UNICODE, else it is ANSI. 
*Added: Quotes text when using the Export method, if content includes any of "\r\n or delimiter character
*Fixed: The Export method exports the hidden columns in the header section
03-19-2018 ExList, 13.0.0.1
*NEW: MSAA, UI Automation, IAccessible support. 
*Added: Microsoft Active Accessibility (MSAA) is designed to help Assistive Technology (AT) products interact with standard and custom user interface (UI) elements of an application (or the operating system), as well as to access, identify, and manipulate an application's UI elements.

*Fixed: The cursor is flickering while control performs OLE Drag and Drop operation ( OLEDrag method )
03-07-2018 ExHTML, 12.1.0.1
*NEW: Display a placeholder for missing icons, images in HTML captions.
*Added: The Key parameter of the HTMLPicture property is case insensitive, so you can display the picture using the insensitive key. For instance, <img>picA</img> is equivalent with <img>pica</img>, or <img>PICA</img> and so on.
*Added: The HTML caption shows a missing image placeholder for images whose source is missing. The missing placeholder displays the index of the icon being missing, or the key of the HTML picture being missing. 
03-05-2018 ExG2antt, 17.2.0.4
*Added: Ability to add links programmatically knowing the keys of the tasks/bars only. The StartItem or/and EndItem parameters of the Items.AddLink method can be 0, which indicates that the StartBarKey or/and EndBarKey parameters can indicates an unique bar key or the first occurrence of giving pattern, if the StartBarKey or/and EndBarKey parameters are of "<pattern>" type, where the pattern can include any wild characters as *,?,# or []. The pattern may include a space which divides multiple patterns for matching. For instance "<A* *K>" indicates the first task/bar with its key starting with A or ends on K
*Added: The Items.ItemBar(0,Key,Property), returns the value of the giving property for the first bar found that matches the key. For instance, Debug.Print(Items.ItemBar(0,"<K*>",exBarStart)) prints an empty-value if no bar with the key starting with K is found, else it returns the starting date-time of the first bar found in the control's data, with the bar's key beginning with K.

03-05-2018 ExScrollBar, 13.0.0.3
*NEW: Multiple improvements for expression-like properties
*Added: a `like` b binary-operator compares the string a against the pattern b. The pattern b may contain wild-characters such as *, ?, # or [] and can have multiple patterns separated by space character. In order to have the space, or any other wild-character inside the pattern, it has to be escaped, or in other words it should be preceded by a \ character. For instance "value like `F*e`" matches all strings that start with F and ends on e, or "value like `a* b*`? indicates any strings that start with a or b character.
*Added: The 0x or 0X sequence proceed the hexa-representation of a number, in properties that support expressions. For instance, "value = 0x100" specifies whether the value is 256 ( 0x100 in hexa-representation ) 
*Added: `hex` a unary-operator converts the giving string from hexa-representation to a numeric value, or converts the giving numeric value to hexa-representation. For instance, hex(`FF`) returns 255, while the hex(255) or hex(0xFF) returns the `FF` string. The hex(hex(`FFFFFFFF`)) always returns `FFFFFFFF` string, as the second hex call converts the giving string to a number, and the first hex call converts the returned number to string representation (hexa-representation). 
*Added: a `bitand`, `bitor`, `bitxor` b binary/bitwise-operator computes the AND/OR/XOR operation on bits of a and b, and returns the unsigned value. For instance, 0x01001000 bitand 0x10111000 returns 0x00001000, 0x01001000 bitor 0x10111000 returns 0x11111000, 0x01110010 bitxor 0x10101010 returns 0x11011000.
*Added: a `bitshift` b, binary/bitwise-operator shifts every bit of a value to the left if b is negative, or to the right if b is positive, for b times, and returns the unsigned value. For instance, 128 bitshift 1 returns 64 ( dividing by 2 ) or 128 bitshift (-1) returns 256 ( multiplying by 2 )
*Added: `bitnot` x unary/bitwise-operator flips every bit of x, and returns the unsigned value. For instance, bitnot(0x00FF0000) returns 0xFF00FFFF.
02-28-2018 ExHelper, 21.0.0.1

*Added: Ability to print the control's content on Excel applications, using the Excel's print and print preview mainframe.
02-26-2018 ExSchedule, 12.2.0.4
*Added: Ability to display schedule events from different years in the same view ( previously the schedule chart can not display events from different years, on the same view ). For instance, if the user selects the first week of the year 2019, just events of the year 2018 are shown, not including the first days of the year 2019.
*Added: The Version property includes the SpecialBuild number of the assembly so it provides information like Major.Minor.Build.Revison.SpecialBuild.Type...
*Fixed: A GPF occurs if the application is started from design mode ( demo / evaluation / trial version only )
*Fixed: The ALT-GR + A, selects all text and insert the associated diacritic letter from the current installed language.
02-21-2018 ExG2antt, 17.2.0.3

02-21-2018 ExPivot, 13.0.0.2
*NEW: Support for EBN 1003 version.
*Added: EBN 1003 implements Colorable Region Support which defines a portion/region of the EBN object where the color of the EBN is applied. For instance, at runtime the identifier 0x1FF0000 applies blue color to all colorable parts that compose the EBN object. The EBN color is not applied to not-colorable portions of the EBNs.
*Added: The Handle parameter of Images method can be a string that specifies the ICO file to be loaded. The ICO file format is an image file format for computer icons in Microsoft Windows. ICO files contain one or more small images at multiple sizes and color depths, such that they may be scaled appropriately. For instance, Images("e:\working\sync.ico") method adds the sync.ico file to the control's Images collection.
02-19-2018 ExPropertiesList, 13.0.0.1
*NEW: Optimizing the component's UI, for usage on 4K (Ultra HD) applications.

02-19-2018 ExTreeCube, 11.0.0.3
*NEW: Multiple improvements for expression-like properties
*Added: a `like` b binary-operator compares the string a against the pattern b. The pattern b may contain wild-characters such as *, ?, # or [] and can have multiple patterns separated by space character. In order to have the space, or any other wild-character inside the pattern, it has to be escaped, or in other words it should be preceded by a \ character. For instance "value like `F*e`" matches all strings that start with F and ends on e, or "value like `a* b*`? indicates any strings that start with a or b character.
*Added: The 0x or 0X sequence proceed the hexa-representation of a number, in properties that support expressions. For instance, "value = 0x100" specifies whether the value is 256 ( 0x100 in hexa-representation ) 
*Added: `hex` a unary-operator converts the giving string from hexa-representation to a numeric value, or converts the giving numeric value to hexa-representation. For instance, hex(`FF`) returns 255, while the hex(255) or hex(0xFF) returns the `FF` string. The hex(hex(`FFFFFFFF`)) always returns `FFFFFFFF` string, as the second hex call converts the giving string to a number, and the first hex call converts the returned number to string representation (hexa-representation). 
*Added: a `bitand`, `bitor`, `bitxor` b binary/bitwise-operator computes the AND/OR/XOR operation on bits of a and b, and returns the unsigned value. For instance, 0x01001000 bitand 0x10111000 returns 0x00001000, 0x01001000 bitor 0x10111000 returns 0x11111000, 0x01110010 bitxor 0x10101010 returns 0x11011000.
*Added: a `bitshift` b, binary/bitwise-operator shifts every bit of a value to the left if b is negative, or to the right if b is positive, for b times, and returns the unsigned value. For instance, 128 bitshift 1 returns 64 ( dividing by 2 ) or 128 bitshift (-1) returns 256 ( multiplying by 2 )
*Added: `bitnot` x unary/bitwise-operator flips every bit of x, and returns the unsigned value. For instance, bitnot(0x00FF0000) returns 0xFF00FFFF.
02-14-2018 ExGantt, 14.0.0.5
*Fixed: Prevents horizontal scrolling the control's content if the user clicks a locked column ( CountLockedColumns property ).
*Fixed: An ICO file shows as 18x18 instead of 16x16 pixels if it is loaded using the HTMLPicture method.
*Fixed: The a mod b expression fails, if b is zero or negative.
*Fixed: The a mid b expression fails, if b expression is greater than the length of the a
02-14-2018 EXMLGrid, 12.0.0.8
*NEW: Ability to use EBN colors for background colors of the nodes, like SelBackColor, SelBackColorChild, Node.BackColor, Node.BackColorChild, ...
*Added: Ability to apply the node's background/foreground / selection colors while the value is not -1. ( For instance, SelBackColorChild property on -1, does not mark the child of selected node )
*Added: SelBackMode property, specifies whether the selection should shown using opaque of transparent color.
*Added: Background(exShowFocusRect) property specifies the border color/visual appearance of the cell with the focus ( ShowFocusRect property is True ) 
*Added: ShowPartialParent property specifies where a partial-visible parent shows its content

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. We hope you to enjoy it.

Here's how the HTML format is generated.

02-12-2018 ExSurface, 13.0.0.4
*NEW: Support for EBN 1003, 1004 version.
*Added: EBN 1003 implements Colorable Region Support which defines a portion/region of the EBN object where the color of the EBN is applied. For instance, at runtime the identifier 0x1FF0000 applies blue color to all colorable parts that compose the EBN object. The EBN color is not applied to not-colorable portions of the EBNs.
*Added: The exClientExt attribute of the EBN/BackgroundExt/BackgroundExtValue supports DPI values, if the number is followed by a D character. For instance, if the DPI scaling is 100%, the 16d is 16, while for a 150% DPI scaling, the 16d is 24. In other words, "top[4,back=RGB(0,0,255)]", draws a blue line on the top side of the object's background, of 4-pixels wide, no matter of DPI scaling, while "top[4D,back=RGB(0,0,255)]", draws the line of 4-pixels wide if DPI scaling is 100%, or 6-pixels wide if DPI scaling is 150% )
*Added: The coordinates of the CP clause of the Skin parameter of VisualAppearance.Add method can be followed by a D character, which indicates the value according to the current DPI settings. For instance, "CP:1 -2 -2 2 2", copies the EBN with the identifier 1, and displays it on a 2-pixels wider rectangle no matter of the DPI settings, while "CP:1 -2D -2D 2D 2D" displays it on a 2-pixels wider rectangle if DPI settings is 100%, and on on a 3-pixels wider rectangle if DPI settings is 150%.

*NEW: Ability to resize at runtime the control's overview panel
*Added: OverviewVisibleEnum.exOverviewSplitter flag specifies whether the control displays an horizontal splitter that can be used to resize the overview part at runtime, by click and dragging. For instance, the Chart.OverviewVisible = OverviewVisibleEnum.exOverviewShowAllVisible or OverviewVisibleEnum.exOverviewSplitter, displays the overview for all visible bars, and let the user resizes the control's overview part by clicking its splitter and ragging to a new position.
*Added: OnResizeControlEnum.exDisableOverview flag disables the overview's splitter. For instance, the OnResizeControl = OnResizeControlEnum.exDisableOverview disables the control's overview, so the user can not resize the overview at runtime, by clicking and dragging.
*Added: ChartStartChanging(exOSplitterChange) / ChartEndChanging(exOSplitterChange) events notify that the user resizes the control's overview part of the control.
02-09-2018 Expression, 12.0.0.2
*Added: a `like` b binary-operator compares the string a against the pattern b. The pattern b may contain wild-characters such as *, ?, # or [] and can have multiple patterns separated by space character. In order to have the space, or any other wild-character inside the pattern, it has to be escaped, or in other words it should be preceded by a \ character. For instance "value like `F*e`" matches all strings that start with F and ends on e, or "value like `a* b*`? indicates any strings that start with a or b character.
*Added: The 0x or 0X sequence proceed the hexa-representation of a number, in properties that support expressions. For instance, "value = 0x100" specifies whether the value is 256 ( 0x100 in hexa-representation ) 
*Added: `hex` a unary-operator converts the giving string from hexa-representation to a numeric value, or converts the giving numeric value to hexa-representation. For instance, hex(`FF`) returns 255, while the hex(255) or hex(0xFF) returns the `FF` string. The hex(hex(`FFFFFFFF`)) always returns `FFFFFFFF` string, as the second hex call converts the giving string to a number, and the first hex call converts the returned number to string representation (hexa-representation). 
*Added: a `bitand`, `bitor`, `bitxor` b binary/bitwise-operator computes the AND/OR/XOR operation on bits of a and b, and returns the unsigned value. For instance, 0x01001000 bitand 0x10111000 returns 0x00001000, 0x01001000 bitor 0x10111000 returns 0x11111000, 0x01110010 bitxor 0x10101010 returns 0x11011000.
*Added: a `bitshift` b, binary/bitwise-operator shifts every bit of a value to the left if b is negative, or to the right if b is positive, for b times, and returns the unsigned value. For instance, 128 bitshift 1 returns 64 ( dividing by 2 ) or 128 bitshift (-1) returns 256 ( multiplying by 2 )
*Added: `bitnot` x unary/bitwise-operator flips every bit of x, and returns the unsigned value. For instance, bitnot(0x00FF0000) returns 0xFF00FFFF.

01-22-2018 ExCascadeTree, 10.0.0.1 (initial release)
The eXCascadeTree component is a multiple-columns-tree-view component that uses miller columns visualization to display your data. The Miller columns (also known as Cascading Lists) are a browsing/visualization technique that can be applied to tree structures. The cascade columns allow multiple levels of the hierarchy to be open at once, and provide a visual representation of the current location. It is closely related to techniques used earlier in the Smalltalk browser, but was independently invented by Mark S. Miller in 1980 at Yale University.

For instance, Shortcut property on "CTRL + A", indicates that the user can automatically select the item pressing the CTRL + A combination, or "CTRL + F1 + B", indicates that the item is being invoked as soon as the user presses CTRL + F1 and then B key. This is valid while the control's ShortcutKeyVisible property is exShowShortcutKeysToggle or exShowShortcutKeysToggleDelayed
*Added: ShortcutKeyAlignH property defines the alignment of the UI shortcut keys relative to the item that displays it, when the holder arranges the items horizontally.
*Added: ShortcutKeyAlignV property defines the alignment of the UI shortcut keys relative to the item that displays it, when the holder arranges the items vertically.
01-15-2018 ExOrgChart, 14.0.0.2
*NEW: Multiple improvements for expression-like properties
*Added: a `like` b binary-operator compares the string a against the pattern b. The pattern b may contain wild-characters such as *, ?, # or [] and can have multiple patterns separated by space character. In order to have the space, or any other wild-character inside the pattern, it has to be escaped, or in other words it should be preceded by a \ character. For instance "value like `F*e`" matches all strings that start with F and ends on e, or "value like `a* b*`? indicates any strings that start with a or b character.
*Added: The 0x or 0X sequence proceed the hexa-representation of a number, in properties that support expressions. For instance, "value = 0x100" specifies whether the value is 256 ( 0x100 in hexa-representation ) 
*Added: `hex` a unary-operator converts the giving string from hexa-representation to a numeric value, or converts the giving numeric value to hexa-representation. For instance, hex(`FF`) returns 255, while the hex(255) or hex(0xFF) returns the `FF` string. The hex(hex(`FFFFFFFF`)) always returns `FFFFFFFF` string, as the second hex call converts the giving string to a number, and the first hex call converts the returned number to string representation (hexa-representation). 
*Added: a `bitand`, `bitor`, `bitxor` b binary/bitwise-operator computes the AND/OR/XOR operation on bits of a and b, and returns the unsigned value. For instance, 0x01001000 bitand 0x10111000 returns 0x00001000, 0x01001000 bitor 0x10111000 returns 0x11111000, 0x01110010 bitxor 0x10101010 returns 0x11011000.
*Added: a `bitshift` b, binary/bitwise-operator shifts every bit of a value to the left if b is negative, or to the right if b is positive, for b times, and returns the unsigned value. For instance, 128 bitshift 1 returns 64 ( dividing by 2 ) or 128 bitshift (-1) returns 256 ( multiplying by 2 )
*Added: `bitnot` x unary/bitwise-operator flips every bit of x, and returns the unsigned value. For instance, bitnot(0x00FF0000) returns 0xFF00FFFF.
01-15-2018 ExCalcEdit, 10.0.0.1
*NEW: Ability to add [Sub]Total lines
*Added: AllowTotal property specifies the keyword that makes the control to display the sum/total of all lines. By default, the AllowTotal property is "<b>Total</b>", which indicates that once the user types Total, it displays the sum of all lines. At runtime, the user can easily add the Total keyword, by typing the T character, and right after pressing the CTRL + Space keys combination.
*Added: AllowSubTotal property specifies the keyword that makes the control to display the subtotals. By default, the AllowSubTotal property is "<fgcolor=808080><b>SubTotal</b></fgcolor>", which indicates that once the user types SubTotal, it displays the sum of all previously lines, until another Total or SubTotal line is found. At runtime, the user can easily add the SubTotal keyword, by typing the S character, and right after pressing the CTRL + Space keys combination.
*Added: InsertText method inserts text to control.
*Added: CaretLine property indicates the line that displays the caret.
01-10-2018 ExG2antt, 17.1.0.3
*Added: The ColumnsFloatBarVisible property of ColumnsFloatBarVisibleEnum type, retrieves or sets a value that indicates whether the the columns float bar is visible or hidden. Currently, the Columns float bar can display hidden columns or groupable columns ( Column.AllowGroupBy property on True ). Previously, the ColumnsFloatBarVisible property was of Boolean type, and displays the hidden columns only, with the Column.AllowDragging propertyon True. For instance, if the ColumnsFloatBarVisible property is exColumnsFloatBarVisibleIncludeGroupByColumns(1), the Columns float bar displays all columns that are not displayed by the control's sort bar ( SortBarVisible property ), and the Column.AllowDragging and AllowGroupBy properties are True )
*Added: The Chart.ShowCollapsedBars property indicates whether the collapsed items displays their recursively child bars. Previously, only direct child bars were included.
*Added: Allows selecting collapsed bars, when user selects bars using the right-click and dragging.
*Added: InsideZooms.Contains(DateTime) property returns the InsideZoom object that contains the specified date-time
*Fixed: The chart scrolls one time-unit to the right, if the user short clicks any bar, while AutoDrag property is exAutoDragScroll.
01-10-2018 ExPivot, 13.0.0.1
*Added: DPI-Aware Support
*NEW: Support for EBN 1004 version ( DPI-Aware support ).
*Added: The exClientExt attribute of the EBN/BackgroundExt/BackgroundExtValue supports DPI values, if the number is followed by a D character. For instance, if the DPI scaling is 100%, the 16d is 16, while for a 150% DPI scaling, the 16d is 24. In other words, "top[4,back=RGB(0,0,255)]", draws a blue line on the top side of the object's background, of 4-pixels wide, no matter of DPI scaling, while "top[4D,back=RGB(0,0,255)]", draws the line of 4-pixels wide if DPI scaling is 100%, or 6-pixels wide if DPI scaling is 150% )
*Added: The coordinates of the CP clause of the Skin parameter of VisualAppearance.Add method can be followed by a D character, which indicates the value according to the current DPI settings. For instance, "CP:1 -2 -2 2 2", copies the EBN with the identifier 1, and displays it on a 2-pixels wider rectangle no matter of the DPI settings, while "CP:1 -2D -2D 2D 2D" displays it on a 2-pixels wider rectangle if DPI settings is 100%, and on on a 3-pixels wider rectangle if DPI settings is 150%.
*Added: The expression properties support `dpi`, `dpix` and `dpiy` constants that returns the current DPI setting on x/y scale. For instance, the "value * dpi" returns the value if the DPI setting is 100%, or value * 1.5 in case, the DPI setting is 150%
01-08-2018 ExGantt, 14.0.0.4
*Added: The Click event occurs ONLY if the user presses and releases the left mouse button on the same location, inside the control. If any mouse movement is detected between press/release no Click event is fired. Previously, the Click event is fired once the user releases the left mouse button over the control. You can use the MouseUp(1) event to notify your application once the user releases the left mouse button within the control.
*Added: The RClick event occurs ONLY if the user presses and releases the right mouse button on the same location, inside the control. If any mouse movement is detected between press/release no RClick event is fired. Previously, the RClick event is fired once the user releases the right mouse button over the control. You can use the MouseUp(2) event to notify your application once the user releases the right mouse button within the control.
*Added: The Version property for /NET or /WPF version returns more information about the component/assembly/file.
*Added: Ability to filter programmatically for blank/empty items, if the Column.Filter property is "" ( empty string ), or include empty values between | characters, while Column.FilterType property is exFilter. For instance, Column.Filter property on "|Item1|Item2" specifies to filter the list for blank/empty items, Item1 or Item2, while Column.Filter property on "" indicates to include just the blank/empty items (Column.FilterType property is exFilter)
*Fixed: The control's built-in editor is locked right after double click it.
ExSwimLane, 13.0.0.3
*NEW: Support for EBN 1003, 1004 version.
*Added: EBN 1003 implements Colorable Region Support which defines a portion/region of the EBN object where the color of the EBN is applied. For instance, at runtime the identifier 0x1FF0000 applies blue color to all colorable parts that compose the EBN object. The EBN color is not applied to not-colorable portions of the EBNs.
*Added: The exClientExt attribute of the EBN/BackgroundExt/BackgroundExtValue supports DPI values, if the number is followed by a D character. For instance, if the DPI scaling is 100%, the 16d is 16, while for a 150% DPI scaling, the 16d is 24. In other words, "top[4,back=RGB(0,0,255)]", draws a blue line on the top side of the object's background, of 4-pixels wide, no matter of DPI scaling, while "top[4D,back=RGB(0,0,255)]", draws the line of 4-pixels wide if DPI scaling is 100%, or 6-pixels wide if DPI scaling is 150% )
*Added: The coordinates of the CP clause of the Skin parameter of VisualAppearance.Add method can be followed by a D character, which indicates the value according to the current DPI settings. For instance, "CP:1 -2 -2 2 2", copies the EBN with the identifier 1, and displays it on a 2-pixels wider rectangle no matter of the DPI settings, while "CP:1 -2D -2D 2D 2D" displays it on a 2-pixels wider rectangle if DPI settings is 100%, and on on a 3-pixels wider rectangle if DPI settings is 150%.
01-05-2018 ExToolBar, 13.0.0.2
*Added: The ShortcutKeyPadding property specifies the UI shortcut key's content padding.
*Added: The ShortcutKeyExtPaddingH property specifies the padding to be applied to the item (arranged horizontally) that displays the UI shortcut, so the ShortcutKeyAlign property aligns the UI shortcut relative to this.
*Added: The ShortcutKeyExtPaddingV property specifies the padding to be applied to the item (arranged vertically) that displays the UI shortcut, so the ShortcutKeyAlign property aligns the UI shortcut relative to this.
*Added: The Background(exShortcutKeyAppearance) specifies the visual appearance of the shortcut keys, using EBN objects
*Added: The Background(exShortcutKeyBackColor) specifies the shortcut key background color
*Added: The Background(exShortcutKeyForeColor) specifies the shortcut key foreground color
ExPlorerTree, 12.0.0.7
*Added: The items in the drop down filter panel, gets sorts as string, numeric, date/time, based on the Column.SortType property.
*Fixed: Prevents a memory leak when loading icons, pictures, from BASE64 encoded strings (Images method, HTMLPicture picture).
*Fixed: A GPF occurs if the application is started from design mode ( demo / evaluation / trial version only )
01-04-2018 ExMiller, 10.0.0.1 ( initial release )
The eXMiller component is a file-folder-view component that uses miller columns visualization to display system folders and files. The Miller columns (also known as Cascading Lists) are a browsing/visualization technique that can be applied to tree structures. The columns allow multiple levels of the hierarchy to be open at once, and provide a visual representation of the current location. 
ExComboBox, 12.0.0.2
*NEW: Support for EBN 1003 version.
*Added: EBN 1003 implements Colorable Region Support which defines a portion/region of the EBN object where the color of the EBN is applied. For instance, at runtime the identifier 0x1FF0000 applies blue color to all colorable parts that compose the EBN object. The EBN color is not applied to not-colorable portions of the EBNs.
*Added: The Handle parameter of Images method can be a string that specifies the ICO file to be loaded. The ICO file format is an image file format for computer icons in Microsoft Windows. ICO files contain one or more small images at multiple sizes and color depths, such that they may be scaled appropriately. For instance, Images("e:\working\sync.ico") method adds the sync.ico file to the control's Images collection.
*Fixed: The parts of the line with different fonts in the HTML caption are vertically aligned ( instead aligning to the font's baseline ) if the line displays a picture or an icon using the <img> HTML tag.
