Release Notes

Version 3.3 introduces a new Office 2010 TP visual style, better support for large dpi settings, eleven new localizations and a number of other new features. All known bugs are fixed.

What's New

  • Added an Office 2010 TP visual style (see screenshot).
  • Improved support for large dpi settings (125 and 150)(see screenshot).
  • Now the TextBox supports a multiline layout.
  • Now the edit part of the combo box can display an image of the selected item (see screenshot). Added two new properties, DisplaySelectedImage and SelectedItemImageSize, that allow you to control this feature.
  • Now the NumericUpDown supports an image (see screenshot) through its new properties EditorImage and EditorImageSize.
  • Added highlighting animation to the application button. You can start or stop it using the Ribbon.ApplicationButtonAnimationEnabled property. If the animation is on, it automatically stops when the user clicks the application button.
