Today we publish a new update of Xailer, the version 5.1.0 that corrects all the errors found until now and and is prepared internally for the imminent jump to Xailer 6 that will incorporate the latest version of Harbour, MinGW, SQLite, MySQL, MariaDB and Scintilla. Further information at:
Today we publish a new update of Xailer, the version 5.0.2 that basically corrects all the errors that you have found, although also includes some improvement and a good example of creation of thumbnails that we hope you like it.
And another control! And surely more than one has missed. And it’s the ability to sign PDF documents with a digital certificate. Xailer 5 comes with a new component named TPdfSignTool that allows you to perform this task very simply, basically just indicate the source file, the destination file, the certificate file and its key. That is all.
However, the class allows to establish exactly where we want to visually locate the certificate or certificates and also allows the date and time of the signature to be stamped by a time stamp authority.
TAsynFileDownload, the same as above but simplified to only need to establish the local and remote file (only
TMailSlotCient Communications client between Xailer applications
TMailSlotServer Communications server between Xailer applications
TInternet High flexibility HTTP client
Some of the controls in this new tab already existed in previous versions of Xailer, however a great effort has been made to be able to be used directly visually from the IDE and in addition its documentation has been completed.
I hope you like them. Xailer 5 is coming soon. Stay tuned!
Today I present one of the undoubtedly great improvements of Xailer 5 and it is the new control TCardBox (cards). This new control is especially indicated to replace great amount of ‘Browses’, but above all, to be a fundamental control in the development of applications for tablets. Continue reading →
Today I present another more control created by me for Xailer 5, that is the control TSwitch. It is a control whose functionality is identical to a ‘checkbox’ but visually is much more suitable, especially for use in tablets for its ability to set the size you want.
like the TEditMod control that I showed in my last article, TSwitch is a control that is painted absolutely vectorially with antialiasing techniques to decrease the sawtooth effect in their curves. You can also set the base color of the control, by default will use the one that is configured in Windows theme (Windows Vista or above).
I hope you like it!. Xailer 5 is coming really soon. Stay tuned!
In this new article I want to introduce you to the new controls I have made to improve editing from Xailer and adapt them to Windows 10 and their use with tablets. The original control of Windows suffers from several problems, which are:
Impossibility to center your text vertically in its container frame, which forced to change the font according to the height of the control to adapt it more or less.
Impossibility to change the ‘password’ style after the control is created.
Impossibility to completely change its frame
Also, in Windows 10 we can see how there are new features in some editing controls, such as:
A help text when control is empty
An image of a magnifying glass to trigger a search
An image to erase the contents of the control (very useful with tablets)
An image to display the contents of a password-type edit control
All of these new features have been incorporated into two new controls: TEditMod and TMemoMod, which of course have their equivalents as DataControls: TDbEditMod and TDbMemoMod. I leave you an image of them:
TEdiMod y TMemoMod
The painting of the different images that the control shows is completely vectorial using techniques of ‘antialiasing’ that incorporates GDI +.
