Native Vista controls on Xailer

Vista has a new kind of control named CommandLink which behaves like a standar button, but enhances the user experience.

Look at the screenshot:


The control shows an image, a main text and a brief description of the action.

To understand how ity works we can see the source code to create the second button on the image above:

WITH OBJECT TCommandLink():New( oForm )
   :cText := "CommandLink"
   :cNote := "This is the new TCommandLink control"
   :lShield := .T.

The file
has all the control source code. Just compile it and add the OBJ to any project where you want to use it.
