*Added: The HTML caption shows a missing image placeholder for images whose source is missing. The missing placeholder displays the index of the icon being missing, or the key of the HTML picture being missing. 
*Fixed: Prevents "Do you want to save ..." / "Save changes...' input box, when the user opens the form in design mode, and close it.

13.1.0.6 Jun 05, 2017
*Added: The Version property includes the SpecialBuild number of the assembly so it provides information like Major.Minor.Build.Revison.SpecialBuild.Type...

13.1.0.4 Feb 03, 2017
*Added: reverse unary-operator for format/expression. The reverse(a) reverses the order of the characters in the string a, For instance, the reverse("Mihai") returns "iahiM"
*Added: lfind binary-operator for format/expression. The a lfind b searches the first occurrence of the string b within string a, and returns -1 if not found, or the position of the result ( zero-index ). For instance, `ABCABC` lfind `D` returns -1, while  `ABCABC` lfind `C` returns 2.
*Added: rfind binary-operator for format/expression. The a rfind b searches the last occurrence of the string b within string a, and returns -1 if not found, or the position of the result ( zero-index ). For instance, `ABCABC` rfind `D` returns -1, while  `ABCABC` rfind `C` returns 5.

13.1.0.3 Dec 07, 2016
*Added: `MIN` and `MAX` binary-operators to get the MIN and MAX value. For instance, the expression `value MIN 10 MAX 100` returns always a value between 10 and 100.
*Added: `sin`, `asin`, `cos`, `acos` unary-operators to get the associated trigonometric functions. For instance `2 * asin(1)` returns the value of PI
*Added: `sqrt` unary-operator returns the square root of the element, so sqrt(81) returns 9, as 9^2 is 81

*NEW:   Support for EBN 1003 version.
*NEW:   Padding support ( padding properties are used to generate space around content )
*Added: EBN 1003 implements Colorable Region Support which defines a portion/region of the EBN object where the color of the EBN is applied. For instance, at runtime the identifier 0x1FF0000 applies blue color to all colorable parts that compose the EBN object. The EBN color is not applied to not-colorable portions of the EBNs.
*Added: DefaultNodePadding property defines the padding for all nodes in the chart. By default, the DefaultNodePadding(exPaddingAll) property is 0, so no padding is applied to node. Use the Node.Padding property to specify a different padding for a particular node.
*Added: Node.Padding property defines the padding for a particular node. By default, the Node.Padding(exPaddingAll) returns the value of DefaultNodePadding(exPaddingAll) property.

For instance use the RenderType on -3 (0xFFFFFFFD), no color is applied, -2, for OR-color scheme (0xFFFFFFFE), -1 (0xFFFFFFFF) for AND-color scheme, ( older EBN color schemes ). The RenderType property is 0 by default, which indicates an A-color scheme. The first significant byte indicates the transparency while the other bytes indicates the RGB value.
*Added: Shows the pictures in the control as grayed, if the Enabled property is False ( the control is disabled )

*Added: The CopyTo property copies the control's content to BMP, PNG, JPG, TIF or GIF format. Previously, the CopyTo property can save the control's content to EMF format only. The extension of the File argument indicates the graphical format to be saved. For instance, the CopyTo("c:\temp\snapshot.png") property saves the control's content in PNG format to snapshot.png. If File parameter provides an unknown extension, the control's content is saved in EMF format ( Enhanced Metafile Format ). The control's content is serialized as it would have no scroll bars.

*Added: Ability to use or load PNG, TIFF or WMF picture on the control's background ( Picture property for /COM version ) , using the LoadPicture predefined function of the Template property. For instance, the [.Template = "Picture = LoadPicture(`E:\picture.png`)"] OR [.Picture = .ExecuteTemplate("loadpicture(`E:\picture.png`)")] loads the PNG picture on the control's background.

*Added: Node.BackgroundExt property indicates additional colors, text, patterns, images that can be displayed on the node's background using the EBN string format. For instance, Node.BackgroundExt = "bottom[4,back=RGB(0,0,0)],top[4,back=RGB(0,0,0)]" draws a 4-pixels wide line aligned to the top and bottom sides of the node. The Node.BackgroundExt = "bottom[10%+12,back=RGB(255,0,0),text=`alertAlert!`,align=0x11]" displays the alert picture and the Alert! caption as bold, on the RED background, on the bottom portion of the node (10%+12 pixels-wide from the object's client area). 
*Added: Node.BackgroundExtValue(Index,Property) property gets or sets a value that indicates the value of giving property for the object with indicated index. This property has effect only if the BackgroundExt property is set. The BackgroundExtValue property allows you to change programmatically, the properties of the parts that composes the EBN object. For instance, BackgroundExtValue(0,exFrameColorExt) = RGB(255,0,0) draws a red frame around the root part of the object. For instance, you can use this property to change properties ( like colors ) of the EBN without having to assign a new EBN string format 
*Tip:   The EBN is a set of UI elements that are built as a tree where each element is anchored to its parent element. The BackgroundExtValue property can change properties like: exBackColorExt (element's background color, including other EBN objects), exClientExt (position/size of the element), exAnchorExt (element's alignment relative to its parent), exTextExt (associates a HTML text on the element), exTextExtWordWrap (word wrapping of the elements text), exTextExtAlignment (alignment of the element's text), exPatternExt (pattern to be shown on the element), exPatternColorExt ( color of the pattern on the element ), exFrameColorExt (color to show the border-frame on the element), exFrameThickExt (shows a thick-frame around the element), exUserDataExt (associates an extra-data with the element)
*Tip:   The eXButtons's builder WYSWYG tool provides the To String field, that indicates the EBN string format that can be used by BackgroundExt/BackgroundExtValue properties.
