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 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.

changes and additions for 2019, so far

01-21-2019 ExCalendar, 15.0.0.1
*NEW: Ability to 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). 
*Added: AttachTemplate method executes the giving x-script code, and attach events if found. The x-script code can contain handle keyword that defines a handler for the specified event. For instance, the AttachTemplate("handle Click() { print(Version) }") sends the control's Version property to the debugger for display. All you need is to open the DebugView tool, and click the control.
*Added: The control's Template page supports AttachTemplate so you can assign x-script code ( including events ) in design mode, and so the control's visual appearance and behavior is changed once the control is created at runtime (/COM version only). 
Expression, 13.0.0.2
*Added: lpad keyword, as a lpad b, pads the value of a to the left with b padding pattern. For instance, 12 lpad "0000" generates the string "0012".
*Added: rpad keyword, 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, as a concat b concatenates the a (as string) for b times. For instance, "x" concat 5, generates the string "xxxxx"
*Fixed: Sometimes, the user can't scroll to the last line, if the last scrollable line is partially visible.
01-14-2019 ExGrid, 15.0.0.2
*Added: </solidline>, </upline>, </dotline> HTML tags ends the solid, up or dotted line
*Added: Prevents showing the ,.;!?'")}] characters at the beginning of a new line, when html text is word-wrapping.
*Fixed: The last italic character of a HTML caption may be shown as clipped
*Fixed: The space after text is not highlighted if incremental search is on, and cell displays built-in HTML decorative text ( sha, out, gra )

All you need is to open the DebugView tool, and click the control.
*Added: The control's Template page supports AttachTemplate so you can assign x-script code ( including events ) in design mode, and so the control's visual appearance and behavior is changed once the control is created at runtime (/COM version only). 
*Fixed: "The current version, supports ADO and DAO Recordsets. Make sure that the object is an ADO recordset, or a DAO recordset" error may occur if using the ADO objects.
01-09-2019 ExList, 13.1.0.1
*NEW: Windows 8 Touch/Pointer Support ( ability to scroll the control's content by touching and dragging )
*Added: AutoDrag property can specify distinct actions for left/right mouse buttons and short/long touch actions. For instance, AutoDrag property on exAutoDragScroll + exAutoDragScrollOnShortTouch indicates that the user can scroll the control's content by clicking the left mouse button, or by short touching the screen.
*Fixed: Can't scroll the control if touching with fingers the buttons of the scroll bar.
*Fixed: The control selects items to the cursor, if a short click occurs ( AutoDrag property is not empty, and the SingleSel property is False )
ExToolBar, 13.0.0.7
*Added: ShortcutKeysInfo property returns the list of shortcut keys that are currently available.
*Added: Item.Position property specifies the position of the item within its collection. You can use the Item.Position to insert an item at specified position.

01-07-2019 ExG2antt, 18.1.0.2
*Added: Improves performance of the control, while the user scrolls the control's chart, while the chart's overview panel is visible ( Chart.OverviewVisible property )
*Added: The CellStateChanging( Item, ColIndex, by ref NewState ) event notifies your application when the cell's check box is about to be changed. For instance, you can disable changing the cell's state by setting the NewState parameter to Items.CellState( Item, ColIndex )
*Added: The ScrollBarsEnum.exVScrollEmptySpace (0x800) flag in ScrollBars property, allows empty space on the control's content, when the it is vertically scrolled to the end. In other words, scrolling control to the end makes the last visible item to be displayed on the top of the control.
*Added: The ScrollBarsEnum.exHScrollEmptySpace (0x400) flag in ScrollBars property, allows empty space on the control's content, when the it is horizontally scrolled to the end. In other words, scrolling control to the end makes the last visible column to be displayed in the leftmost position.
ExPivot, 14.0.0.2
*Added: The Version property includes the SpecialBuild number of the assembly so it provides information like Major.Minor.Build.Revison.SpecialBuild.Type...
*Added: Draws the non-items area with the BackColorAlternate property only if the first two bytes in the color is not 0x7F
*Fixed: Prevents "Do you want to save ..." / "Save changes...' input box, when the user opens the form in design mode, and close it.
*Added: Miscellaneous changes for control's scrollbar-extension such as: contiguously scrolls the control's content line by line, or page by page ( if CTRL is pressed ) while the user keeps clicking the up/left top/right side of the thumb-extension, closes the scrollbar-extension as soon as the user presses ALT + F4, ALT + TAB, shows the scrollbar-extension only if effective mouse movement occurs, hides the scrollbar-extension as soon as the owner control loses the focus
