Dec 12, 2005 /  Prof-UIS 2.51 Released!

We are pleased to announce the release of Prof-UIS 2.51, an intermediate version available for immediate download for registered users. The evaluation version is available on your request.

The major new feature is the skinning support, which is based on an XML file that describes the hierarchy of GUI elements and how they are painted in the application. The PNG (Portable Network Graphics) format used for all images makes it possible to support alpha blending for all Windows OSes starting from Windows 95 / NT 4.0. The skinning module also supports custom window borders and captions. The current version features the Black Diamond skin with other skins coming soon. You can download and play with a new MDI application (the Skinable sample), which demonstrates a slick, Longhorn/Vista-like interface implemented with skins.

The other features include the AutoFilter Pop-Up List support for the combo box, enhanced spin control, and more. To see the full list of new features, improvements, and bug fixes, visit the Version History section of our website!

Jan 18, 2005 /  Frame Features v.1.2 Released!
Today we are happy to announce the release of the first version of Frame Features. It is an ActiveX control that uses the rich features of Prof-UIS through the intermediary OLE Automation package (ProfAuto). Whether you are using VB 6.0, VB.NET, C#, J#, or some other language, Frame Features allows you to enrich your application with the newest and most popular features of dockable toolbars, menus, and status bars available in the latest Microsoft products including Office XP/2003 and Visual Studio NET/2005. Frame Features can be used in most of the form designers supporting the ActiveX container technology. It can also be used in any other environment that provides access to a handle of the window in which the dockable windows supported by Frame Features should be displayed. The control comes with a set of property pages (Property Builder) with which you can easily and quickly create the user interface in the design mode. Alternatively, the user interface can be implemented completely programmatically at runtime. To help the developers quickly start employing the power of Frame Features, we included SDI and MDI sample applications for the following development environments: Visual Basic 6.0, Visual Java++ 6.0, C# 7.0, C# 7.1, C# 8.0, J# 7.1, J#8.0, Visual Basic 7.0, and Visual Basic 7.1. Frame Features even perfectly works with Internet Explorer and the HTA sample application proves this. We plan to make available support for resizable control bars and some other Prof-UIS features in the next releases of Frame Features. Please take a look at the key features, take a feature tour and download Frame Features right now! We hope you will enjoy it.
