tag is ignored in the Column.HTMLCaption, while the HeaderSingleLine property is False ( by default ). *Fixed: In MS Access, accessing a column using the Item property of the Columns by passing a variable fails, if not using the CStr function. *Fixed: The user is not able to resize the columns if "Switch primary and secondary buttons" is checked. *Fixed: The tooltip shown for objects in the chart area can not display icons or pictures using the HTML tag. 6.1.0.5 Mar 05, 2012 *NEW: Ability to specify padding for cells in the column *NEW: The 'in' function in computing formulas increases significantly the time to evaluate it. For instance, if you have the formula such us 'value = 1 or value = 2 or value = 22 or value = 45 or value = 12', ... you can have the 'value in (1, 2, 22, 45, 12)'. In other words, if the set contains about 1000 elements for instance, the evaluator takes max 8 checking to determine if the specified value fits the set, else requires 1000 checking is required to verify each or condition in the sequence. *NEW: The 'case()' function includes any number of case instances. A 'case' instance may contains a statement that is executed once the value is found in the 'case' collection. The 'case' unary operator gets the value being specified by respective statement or the value itself. For instance, the 'int(value) case (1 : value + 1 ; 2 : value * 2)' specifies that if the value is 1 the statement returns 2, while if the value is 2, the statement returns 4, and for any other value it returns the value itself. Also the 'case()' can be used with 'switch' as for instance "%0 switch ('not found',11,22,33,44,55) case (11 : %0 + %1 ; 22 : %1 * 1.19; 33 : len(str(%0)))" indicates that if the value in the column 0 is 11, the result will be the sum between first column and second column, else if the value is 22 the result is the second column value multiplied by 1.19, else if the value is 33 the return is the length of the value in the first cell, if the value is 44 or 55, the result is 44 or 55, while for any other value the result will be 'not found'. The 'in', 'switch' and 'case()' increases significantly the speed to evaluate constant values instead using 'and', 'or' operators to build complicated formulas that could be time consuming. *NEW: The 'switch' function similar with 'in' function retrieves the value being found in the collection, or a default value if the element is not found. The first element in the collection is the result being returned by 'switch' function when the value is not found in the collection, else the 'switch' returns the value itself. All elements in the collection MUST be constant values. For instance, the "value switch ('not found', 11, 23, 45, 129, 123,99)" means that if the value is 33, the 'not found' string is returned, while if the value is 45, the switch returns 45. *Added: Column.Def(exCellPaddingLeft) specifies the left padding (space) of the cells within the column. The similar options are: exCellPaddingRight, exCellPaddingTop and exCellPaddingBottom to control the right, top and bottom padding. *Added: Column.Def(exHeaderPaddingLeft) specifies the left padding (space) of the column's header. The similar options are: exHeaderPaddingRight, exHeaderPaddingTop and exHeaderPaddingBottom to control the right, top and bottom padding. *Added: The 'in', 'switch' and 'case()' functions available for properties such us: Column.ComputedField, Column.FormatColumn, ConditionalFormat.Expression 6.1.0.4 Feb 20, 2012 *NEW: Filter Prompt support ( The filter prompt feature allows you to filter the items as you type while the filter bar is visible on the bottom part of the list area ) *Added: FilterBarPrompt property specifies the HTML caption to be displayed when the filter pattern is missing. *Added: FilterBarPromptColumns property specifies the list of columns to be used when filtering using the prompt. By default, the filter prompt uses all columns. *Added: FilterBarPromptPattern property specifies the pattern for the filter prompt. *Added: FilterBarPromptVisible property shows or hides the filter prompt *Added: FilterBarPromptType property specifies the type of the filter prompt 6.1.0.3 Feb 08, 2012 *Added: Prevents removing the data from the control such as columns, items and bars, when LoadXML method is called, so you can use the LoadXML to load only the regional changes such as month names, week days and so on. *Fixed: The Columns.Count property gets increased value if LoadXML method is called successively. *Fixed: Sometimes, removing an item that hosts an inside control fails. *Fixed: Keeps the focused item on the previously selected if it is still visible, after applying the filter. 6.1.0.2 Jan 23, 2012 *NEW: VisualAppearance.Add reads EBN files from byte[] or safe arrays of VT_I1 or VT_UI1. In other words, you can add EBN files directly to resources and use them as .VisualAppearance.Add(ID, Namespace.My.Resources.EBN) for vb/net or .VisualAppearance.Add(ID, Namespace.Properties.Resources.EBN) for c#, where the ID is the new identifier to be added, and the EBN is the identifier in the resource for the EBN file. *Added: Ensures that the chart displays the last time-unit if the Chart.ScrollRange is used. For instance, if the Chart.ScrollRange(exEndDate) is #1/31/2001 11:00:00 AM# and the chart gets magnified to minutes, it ensures that the #1/31/2001 11:59:00 AM# unit is visible. *Added: If the Chart.ScrollRange(exStartDate) and Chart.ScrollRange(exEndDate) point to the same valid date-time, the chart limits the view to a single day ( time-unit ). For instance, if #1/1/2001# indicates that the chart is limited to a single day, while if #1/1/2001 11:00:00AM# limits the view to a single hour ( 11 AM ). *Fixed: The Chart.ScrollRange property does not work properly when the Chart.UnitScale property is set to exHour, exMinute or exSecond. 6.1.0.1 Dec 30, 2011 *NEW: Easy way to define the control's visual appearance in design mode, using XP-Theme elements or EBN objects. *Added: VisualDesign property specifies the control's visual appearance. The VisualDesign value is a BASE64 encoded string, that can be defined using the control's WYSWYG Visual Design Editor, which can be invoked by selecting the control in Design Mode, select Properties, go to the VisualDesign property and click the ... in the Properties browser. The value for this property can be used on /COM, /NET or /WPF. The /WPF version does not have the inside editor, instead any you can use the /COM or /NET to generate the BASE64 encoded strings for this property. *Fixed: On Windows 7, the user can not open the open file dialog on MSDEV using the ShowImageList property ( VC 6.0 ) *Fixed: The Template property shows no ... button in the properties browser. 6.0.0.1 Dec 05, 2011 *NEW: Ability to specify alternate labels for levels when zooming or changing the width for the base unit, so the control chooses the best fit label for each level when zooming. The "<|>" delimits the alternative labels. *NEW: Ability to specify the default count and time-scale unit for the level in the Label properties, so the Label properties change the HTML text being displayed in the level, the time-scale unit and the count of the units being displayed in chart's header. The "<||>" delimits the alternative labels from options for the level such as Count and Time-Unit, so the Label property may be used such as: LABEL1[<|>LABEL2[<|>LABEL3...]][<||>COUNT[<||>UNIT]] where [] parts may miss, the LABEL indicates a HTML representation for the level in the header of the chart, the COUNT field indicates the value for the Level.Count property and the UNIT field indicates the Level.Unit property. *Added: Chart.Label property supports alternative labels. For instance: the "<%ss%><|><%nn%>:<%ss%><||>5" indicates that the level displays the second in double digits or minute following the seconds if it fits entirely to the level, from 5 to 5 seconds. *Added: Level.Label property supports alternative labels. For instance, the "<%mmm%> <%d%>, '<%yy%><|><%ww%><|><|>256" indicates that the levels displays weeks ( exWeek = 256 ), does not update the Count property, and displays the number of the week or the starting date of the week in format <%mmm%> <%d%>, '<%yy%>. The 256 is required as for instance, the format <%mmm%> <%d%>, '<%yy%> indicates a exDay unit instead exWeek. *Added: The Chart.Zoom method may uses predefined alternate labels, for best fit. *Chang: All default values for the Chart.Label and Chart.Tooltip properties have been updated to support alternative labels. 5.1.1.2 Nov 02, 2011 *Added: The Background(exDragDropList...) may be called during the OLEDragOver event to specify the image on the item from the cursor while drag and drop operation is performed. *Fixed: Prevents flickering the image being dragged over the first visible item and the current vertical position is 0. *Fixed: Loading second time a huge list of items could be slower ( visible for thousands of items ) *Fixed: Rarely, right clicking while dragging the thumb ( left button is still pressed ) of the scroll bar fires an access violation. *Fixed: Changing the ShowImageList property in design mode fails, if the component is hosted in a VC++ 2005, 2008 and 2010 application ( available for /COM only ). 5.1.1.1 Oct 03, 2011 *Added: The Background(exDragDropAlign) specifies the alignment of the drag and drop image relative to the cursor. *Fixed: The computed field result can not be get using the Items.CellCaption property. *Fixed: Sometime, Delphi 2009/2010 fires "Invalid floating point operation" when resizing the panels using the vertical scroll bar. *Fixed: Ignores the
or carriage return sequences in HTML text, if the SingleLine property is True 5.1.1.0 Aug 15, 2011 *Fixed: Adjusts the first visible date to base level settings when calling the Chart.ScrollTo method. *Fixed: The MarkNow feature highlights the current week a day before, if the MarkNowUnit reminder is set on exWeek, and FirstWeekDay property is exMonday. *Fixed: Updates the MarkNow time based on the local date/time and Daylight Saving Time. *Fixed: Displays the first line of the HTML text, if it does not fit entirely the field 5.1.0.9 June 29, 2011 *Added: (globbing) The filter allows using [] for group of characters. The "[CB]at" matches Cat or Bat but not cat or mat. *Fixed: The control looks for the first match instead looking for all possibilities, if the pattern contains more than one * character (any) *Fixed: The filter is not showing any object, if it contains more than one pattern. *Fixed: The Items.RemoveAllItems method is safe to be called during an event. 5.1.0.8 May 23, 2011 *Added: The Columns.Item(Caption) or Columns(Caption) is case insensitive. *Added: Updates the first day of the week as your regional settings, when selecting a range of dates in the control's filter bar. ( Column.DisplayFilterDate ) *Fixed: Avoids clearing the filter pattern in the Filter For field, if the user presses the Up or Down keys ( Column.FilterOnType ) *Fixed: Closes the filter when the user presses the Up, Down or Enter key ( Column.FilterOnType ) 5.1.0.7 Apr 06, 2011 *Fixed: The Columns.Item property retrieves nothing, if the column is not found, instead firing an error. *Fixed: Removes the Scroll event definition from the /NET assembly. *Fixed: The MDI form requires an extra click to activate it, once a modeless dialog is closed. The dialog contains a VB6 UserControl that hosts the control.
