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 JavaScript, 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 how you can check our JavaScript component:

The video shows how you can check any of our JavaScript components. JavaScript is the programming language of HTML and the Web. Recently, we have started to publish our first suite of JavaScript components. In the near future, new JavaScript components (such as pivot, gantt ) will arrive. We try as much as possible to make them compatible with the other components we already support for the past 20 years. We will keep continue to improve, maintain and support all of our components!

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 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 2020, so far

05-27-2020 ExThumbnail, 13.1.0.2
*Added: /WPF Assembly
*Added: The ExtractMethod property specifies the order and the methods the control uses to extract the thumbnails. By default, the ExtractMethod property is "ThumbnailCache,ThumbnailProvider,ExtractImage". This method allows you to choose between quality of the thumbnails vs speed.
*Added: The Caption, ToolTipText and ToolTipTitle properties support ffilter key, which returns the currently filter pattern ( FilterBarPromptPattern property )
*Fixed: The folder can be thumbnailed if the input file ends with \ or / character
ExGantt, 17.0.0.5
*Added: FormatABC method formats the A,B,C values based on the giving expression and returns the result. For instance, FormatABC("dpi") returns a numeric value that indicates the display settings ( aspect ratio ).
*Added: Items.ItemMinHeight(0) / Items.ItemMaxHeight(0) property changes the minimum / maximum height for all items.
*Fixed: Closes the control's drag and drop image when user drops data to any other control. For instance, a MessageBox during the target's OLEDragDrop event will keep showing the control's drag and drop picture ( Background(exDragDropAfter) property, /COM version )
*Fixed: Sometimes the user can't drop data to a target control ( OLEDragDrop event is not fired, or fired for the source control, /COM version )
05-25-2020 ExList, 15.0.0.1
*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%
ExButton, 17.0.0.1
*Fixed: FormatAnchor(False) = vbNullString fails (vbNullString is a special VB constant that denotes a null string. The "" literal is an empty string)
05-22-2020 ExFileView, 14.0.0.5
*Added: SelectByDrag property specifies whether the user can select multiple files/folders by dragging. This option has effect only if the control's SingleSel property is False.

*Added: Background(exShowFocusRect) property specifies the border color/visual appearance of the cell with the focus ( ShowFocusRect property is True ) 
*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
ExCalendar, 17.0.0.1
*Fixed: Any expression that includes the "in" operator fails.
05-18-2020 ExMiller, 15.0.0.1

*Fixed: The user can't use the column's filter button being shown in the control's columns floating bar ( ColumnsFloatBarVisible property )
05-06-2020 ExG2antt, 19.0.0.9
*Added: Prevents changing the start/middle/end parts of the bar if the Bar's StartColor, Color or EndColor property is -1 ( 0xFFFFFFFF )
*Added: Bar.StartColor32 and Bar.EndColor32 properties for /NET and /WPF versions.
*Added: Expands or collapses the entire selection if the user clicks any +/- glitch, presses Left/Right/+ or- key inside the selection, while the CTRL is pressed. This option is valid, while the control's SingleSel property is False.
ExG2Host, 14.0.0.2
*Added: Shows the hand cursor when the cursor hovers the open-filter button of the column's header or close button of the control's filter bar

*Fixed: Sometimes the control displays no items, but still showing the vertical scroll bar, when the user deletes multiple items ( Items.RemoveItem method )
ExRibbon, 14.0.0.1
*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). 
*Fixed: The sub-menu's / select drop down's arrow shows distorted when Windows's DPI is on.
04-27-2020 ExFileView, 14.0.0.4
*Added: DisplayFoldersInfo property specifies whether the control displays the Size, Type, Modified for folders objects.

*Added: AllowSelectNothing property specifies whether the current selection is erased, once the user clicks outside of the items section. For instance, if the control's SingeSel property is True, and AllowSelectNothing property is True, you can un-select the single-selected item if pressing the CTRL + Space, or by CTRL + click.
ExSurface, 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.

*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). 
*Fixed: The Arrange method often causes a lockup of the control, as soon as there are sub-items somewhere (Elements.Insert)
04-24-2020 ExTree, 15.0.0.6

*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 item's EditValue property returns the masking/placeholder characters, even the second parameter of the mask, includes 1, 2 or 3 values. For instance, "[mask=0000;1]" specifies the item's editing-mask displays 4 digits place-holders, and the item's EditValue returns the value(number) without including the masking/placeholder characters. So if the item's mask diplays: 12__, the item's EditValue returns "12" rather than "12__".
ExplorerTree, 16.0.0.1
*Added: Improves the speed to scroll/display the control on 4K applications.
*Added: The 0x200(exGridLinesGeometric) flag draws the grid lines using a geometric pen (geometric pens are generally slower than cosmetic pens)

04-15-2020 ExEdit, 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.

*Fixed: The FilterPromptEnum.exFilterPromptEndWith flag of FilterBarPromptType property filters more items than it should.
04-14-2020 ExGantt, 17.0.0.4
*NEW: Multiple improvements for expression-like properties such as: ConditionalFormat.Expression, Column.FormatColumn, Items.FormatCell and so on
*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.
ExPropertiesList, 17.0.0.1
*Added: The option "Roll the mouse wheel to scroll" of Window's mouse & touchpad settings specifies the number of items to vertically scroll. Previously, scrolling vertical with the mouse wheel takes 3 items at a time
04-08-2020 ExSwimLane, 16.0.0.1
*NEW: Radical improvements for the layout the Arrange method generates
*Added: By default, the DefArrange(exDefArrangeDX), DefArrange(exDefArrangeDY) property is 36 pixels.
*Fixed: The Arrange method may generate different layout/arrangement for different input-elements
EXMLGrid, 13.1.0.4
*NEW: Ability to serialize the control's content as a text using the SaveXML method
*Added: The SaveXML method exports the control's content as a string, if the Destination parameter is a reference to a string. For instance, The syntax Dim s As String: G2antt1.SaveXML s: MsgBox (s), saves and displays the control's content in XML format as a string.
*Added: The LoadXML method loads an XML document using the supplied string.
*Added: Node.Picture support keys of pictures being added using the HTMLPicture property of the control. 
04-06-2020 ExG2antt, 19.0.0.8
*Added: Shows the drop down filter and tooltip panels to the nearest monitor relative to the cursor position.
*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: The Items.ItemMinHeight and ItemMaxHeight properties are DPI compatible.
*Fixed: The Items.ItemHeight property sets the height using DPI conversion.
ExGrid, 16.1.0.2
*Added: The ItemFromPoint( 0, -1, ColIndex) property returns the number of rows, between current cursor position and the the last fully-visible item of the control. The ItemFromPoint( 0, -1, ColIndex) property returns a positive value only, if the cursor hovers empty-portion of the control ( right after the last item ). The ColIndex parameter returns the index of the column from the cursor, while the cursor hovers the items section of the control.
*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 items in the drop down filter panel, gets sorts as string, numeric, date/time, based on the Column.SortType property.
*Fixed: Items.CellEditorVisible property on exEditorVisible(1), fails for a CheckValueType editor
03-30-2020 ExComboBox, 15.0.0.2
*NEW: FilterBarCaption property supports expressions, and UI Column's Filter
*Added: The FilterBarCaption property supports expressions, so its evaluated value defines the HTML caption to be displayed on the control's filter bar. By default, the FilterBarCaption property is empty, so the control's automatically computes the filter bar's label based on the filter of each column. If no filter is selected, no filter label is generated. The FilterBarCaption property supports the following predefined keywords: value or current ( defines the control's current filter label, as it is displayed ), itemcount keyword returns the number of all items within the control, visibleitemcount keyword indicates the number of visible items within the control ( negative value indicates that the control has a filter applied, equivalent with the Items.VisibleItemCount property ), matchitemcount keyword indicates the number of items that currently matches the control's filter ( negative value indicates that the control has a filter applied, equivalent with the Items.MatchItemCount property ), promptpattern keyword specifies the currently pattern for the filter's prompt ( this is eligible, if the FilterBarPromptVisible property includes the exFilterBarPromptVisible flag ), available keyword returns a list of columns that are currently not filtered, but available to be filtered for ( Column.DisplayFilterButton property on True ) as a HTML string, allui keyword returns a HTML caption that includes all columns with Column.DisplayFilterButton property on True, including the value for each column's filter if it is filtered, all keyword returns a HTML caption that includes all columns including the value for each column's filter if it is filtered. For instance, FilterBarCaption = "`<r>` + value" aligns the filter bar's label to the right, the "value replace `[` with `<fgcolor=808080>[` replace `]` with `]</fgcolor>`" shows the column's name with a different color, "`<b><r>` + value + `</b><fgcolor=808080>` + ( matchitemcount < 0 ? ( ( len(value) ? `<br>` : `` ) + `<r>` + abs(matchitemcount + 1) + ` result(s)` ) : ``)" displays the number of results in the control's filter bar and so on.
*Added: Ability to clear / select new filter value from the column's filter panel, if the user clicks the column's caption of the control's filter bar. The value, current, available, allui or all keyword of the FilterBarCaption property returns a HTML caption that includes the column's caption between [<b> and </b>] if the column is currently filtered ( shows as bold between brackets ), between <fgcolor=C0C0C0>[<s> and </s>]<fgcolor> if the column is not currently filtered ( shows in strikeout as gray between brackets ). The all, allui and available keywords uses the <fgcolor> </fgcolor> sequence (uncolored space) to separate the parts on the control's filter description. You can use predefined functions like replace to change the appearance of the column in the control's filter bar. For instance, "all replace `<s>` with `` replace `</s>` with ``" removes the strikeout effect for available and not-filtered columns, "allui replace `[<b>` with `<bgcolor=000000><fgcolor=FFFFFF><b> ` replace `</b>]` with ` </b></fgcolor></bgcolor>`" shows the filtered columns on white on a black background, "value + `<r>` + available replace `<fgcolor=C0C0C0>` with `<fgcolor=FF0000>`" shows the currently filter on the left, while the available filter on the right in red, 
*Added: The Items.MatchItemCount property retrieves the number of items that match the filter. If negative it indicates that a filter is applied, and its absolute value minus 1 specifies the count of items that match the filter criteria. If zero, no items are loaded into the control, and so no filter is applied. If positive, it indicates the total number of items within the control equivalent with the Items.ItemCount property. 
*Added: Items.VisibleItemCount property returns negative value, if the control has a filter applied. The negative value represents a formula of -( count + 1 ), where count indicates the number of matching items. For instance, if the Items.VisibleItemCount property returns -1, the count of matching items is 0, if -2, 1 matching item, if -3, 2 matching items, and so on.
ExTree, 15.0.0.5
*Added: Allows newly added items to be visible, while control has a filter applied ( Call the ApplyFilter method, during Change, KeyDown, ... event in order to re-apply the filter on the new items ).
*Added: The FilterPromptEnum.exFilterPromptStartWith or exFilterPromptEndWith is not applied for all columns ( FilterBarPromptColumns property is -1 )
*Fixed: Prevents horizontal scrolling the control's content if the user clicks a locked column ( CountLockedColumns property ).

03-23-2020 ExThumbnail, 13.1.0.1
*NEW: Auto-Update Support.
*Added: The AutoUpdate property determines whether the control automatically updates the thumbnail's view being changed externally. By default, the AutoUpdate property is False, which indicates that the control does not update any thumbnails. Change the AutoUpdate property on True, so the control will monitor the changes on the displayed files, so any change will be reflected in the view. For instance, the user edits the picture.
*Added: Scrolls horizontally/vertically faster while rotating the mouse-wheel, while only one scroll bar is displayed. If both are presents, the wheel scrolls vertical the control, while CTRL + wheel changes the horizontal scroll position.
*Added: The VirtualMode property specifies whether the control is running in virtual mode. By default, the VirtualMode property is True, which indicates that the control keeps the allocated resources to the minimum required. In virtual mode, the control keeps resources for the visible thumbnails only, and disposes anything that's not required. If the VirtualMode property is False, the control is keep loading the thumbnails in the background, which can be faster for navigating through the thumbnails.
ExMiller, 14.0.0.1
*Added: The option "Roll the mouse wheel to scroll" of Window's mouse & touchpad settings specifies the number of items to vertically scroll. Previously, scrolling vertical with the mouse wheel takes 3 items at a time

*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 buttons are not size correctly, with the Windows set to Classic theme.

*Fixed: The control starts editing/renaming the selected folder, as soon as the folder's context menu is displayed when user right-clicks it.
03-11-2020 ExPivot, 15.0.0.5
*Added: The FilterBarCaption property supports the leafitemcount keyword that counts the number of leaf items being shown in the control. This function should be used when you are displaying hierarchies, else you can still uses itemcount or matchitemcount that are faster than leafitemcount function. For instance, FilterBarCaption property "allui + `<r>` + leafitemcount + ` item(s)`" displays all available UI filter columns, and aligned to the right the number of leaf items.
*Added: The Background(exFooterFilterBarButton) property on -1 hides permanently the close button of the control's filter bar.

The M and N shortcut keys will be displayed as soon as the user presses the CTRL + P base key combination.
*Added: DBase Plus samples
ExHTML, 15.0.0.2
*Fixed: The scroll bar's thumb minimum-size is equivalent with the size of scroll's buttons. In other words, the size of the scroll's buttons specify the thumb minimum-size. Previously, the thumb's minimum-size was 6-pixels.
02-26-2020 ExGantt, 17.0.0.3
*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.

02-20-2020 ExComboBox, 15.0.0.1
*NEW: Filter-Prompt-Bar Support
*Added: The FilterBarPromptVisible property of FilterBarVisibleEnum type, specifies how the control's filter bar is displayed and behave. Previously, the FilterBarPromptVisible property was of Boolean type. By default, FilterBarPromptVisible property is exFilterBarHidden, so no filter bar is shown. Even so, the control's filter bar is shown as before, as soon as the user selects a value from the control's filter list, so a filter is applied. The FilterBarVisibleEnum type includes several flags that can be combined together, as described bellow.
*Added: The exFilterBarPromptVisible, exFilterBarVisible, exFilterBarCaptionVisible flag of FilterBarVisibleEnum type, forces the control's filter-prompt, filter bar or filter bar description ( even empty ) to be shown.
*Added: The exFilterBarSingleLine flag of FilterBarVisibleEnum type, specifies that the filter bar's caption is shown on a single line, so <br> HTML tag or \r\n are not handled. By default, the control's filter description applies word wrapping. Can be combined to exFilterBarCompact to display a single-line filter bar. 
*Added: The exFilterBarToggle flag of FilterBarVisibleEnum type, specifies that the user can close the control's filter bar ( removes the control's filter ) by clicking the close button of the filter bar or by pressing the CTRL + F, while the control's filter bar is visible. If no filter bar is displayed, the user can display the control's filter bar by pressing the CTRL + F key. While the control's filter bar is visible the user can navigate though the list or control's filter bar using the ALT + Up/Down keys.
*Added: The exFilterBarShowCloseIfRequired flag of FilterBarVisibleEnum type, indicates that the close button of the control's filter bar is displayed only if the control has any currently filter applied. The Background(exFooterFilterBarButton) property on -1 hides permanently the close button of the control's filter bar. 
*Added: The exFilterBarShowCloseOnRight flag of FilterBarVisibleEnum type, specifies that the close button of the control's filter bar should be displayed on the right side. If the control's RightToLeft property is True, the close button of the control's filter bar would be automatically displayed on the left side.
*Added: The exFilterBarCompact flag of FilterBarVisibleEnum type, compacts the control's filter bar, so the filter-prompt will be displayed to the left, while the control's filter bar caption will be displayed to the right. This flag has effect only if combined with the exFilterBarPromptVisible. This flag can be combined with the exFilterBarSingleLine flag, so all filter bar will be displayed compact and on a single line.
ExScrollBar, 18.0.0.1
*Fixed: The scroll bar's thumb minimum-size is equivalent with the size of the size of scroll's buttons. In other words, the size of the scroll's buttons specify the thumb minimum-size. Previously, the thumb's minimum-size was 6-pixels.

ExCascadeTree, 12.0.0.1
*NEW: Multiple improvements for expandable-columns ( Column.ExpandColumns property )
*Fixed: The Column.Visible property is ignored, if the column is being displayed by another expandable column (Column.ExpandColumns property). For instance, Column.Visible property on False, hides all child-columns
*Fixed: The Column.Expanded property on False is ignored while adding a column
*Fixed: Prevents splitting the expanded-column, when user drag and drop the column to a new position
02-12-2020 ExSurface, 14.1.0.3
*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.
Expression, 14.0.0.1
*Fixed: The scroll bar's thumb minimum-size is equivalent with the size of the size of scroll's buttons. In other words, the size of the scroll's buttons specify the thumb minimum-size. Previously, the thumb's minimum-size was 6-pixels.
02-10-2020 ExG2antt, 19.0.0.6

This option is valid while HasButtons property is exPlus ( by default ), and any of Background(exTreeGlyphOpen)/Background(exTreeGlyphClose) is not-zero
*Added: The Background(exFooterFilterBarButton) property on -1 hides permanently the close button of the control's filter bar.
*Fixed: Disables the default beep being played when the user presses the Enter, Escape or CTRL + F key on control's filter bar
*Fixed: Prevents editing the focused item when the control gains the focus, but no item is selected.
ExSwimLane, 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). 
*Fixed: The Arrange method often causes a lockup of the control, as soon as there are sub-items somewhere (Elements.Insert)
02-05-2020 ExToolBar, 13.0.1.2

*Fixed: The SelectItem event is not fired if the user presses the button's shortcut ( Item.Shortcut, Item.ShowAsButton property )
*Fixed: The sub-menu's / select drop down's arrow shows distorted when Windows's DPI is on.
ExEdit, 14.0.0.4
*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.
02-03-2020 ExMiller, 13.0.0.1
*Fixed: Any expression that includes the "in" operator fails.
*Fixed: The scroll bar's thumb minimum-size is equivalent with the size of the size of scroll's buttons. In other words, the size of the scroll's buttons specify the thumb minimum-size. Previously, the thumb's minimum-size was 6-pixels.
ExPropertiesList, 16.0.0.1
*Fixed: The scroll bar's thumb minimum-size is equivalent with the size of the size of scroll's buttons. In other words, the size of the scroll's buttons specify the thumb minimum-size. Previously, the thumb's minimum-size was 6-pixels.
01-27-2020 ExThumbnail, 13.0.0.3
*NEW: Context-Menu Support
*Added: The AllowContextMenu property gets or sets a value that specifies whether the shell's context menu is shown once the user right clicks the thumbnail. By default, the AllowContextMenu property is False, so no context menu is provided. Change the AllowContextMenu property on True, and once you right-click the thumbnail its shell context menu will be displayed. So, you can edit, open, copy and so on
*Added: The Caption, ToolTipText and ToolTipTitle properties support fvcount and fvindex keys, which indicates the number of visible thumbnails, and the index of the thumbnail in the visible collection. For instance, if a filter is applied the fvcount returns the number of available/visible/filtered thumbnails.
*Added: The StatusCaption property indicates the expression to generate the HTML caption to be displayed on the thumbnail's status bar. For instance, StatusCaption property on "`<r><font ;6><fgcolor=808080><sha ;;0>Count: <b>` + (len(fvcount) ? fvcount : 0)" displays the number of files being shown in the list.
*Added: The Background(exThumbnailSelBorderColor) property specifies the color to show the thumbnail's border/frame when focused. By default, the Background(exThumbnailSelBorderColor) property is 0x8000000D. You can set on 0 or -1, to prevent showing the thumbnail's selected frame

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).
