Exontrol ExSchedule Component - Release Notes (http://www.exontrol.com/exschedule.jsp)
188.8.131.52 Jul 19, 2018
*Added: Displays each All-Day event into the group's owner only, while the Event.GroupID points to an exiting group, and ShowGroupingEvents property is True ( Event.AllDayEvent property is True )
*Added: Displays All-Day events with invalid GroupID, on the entire day, while the ShowGroupingEvents property is True ( Event.AllDayEvent property is True, Event.GroupID property on -1 )
*Fixed: Clips the event's caption, label, picture, icons to the event's body.
184.108.40.206 May 09, 2018
*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
*Added: date(`now`) unary-operator returns the current date-time ( as double ), while the date(``) returns the current date ( no time included )
220.127.116.11 Mar 26, 2018
*NEW: Ability to re-evaluate the expressions of DefaultEventLongLabel, DefaultEventShortLabel, Event.LongLabel, Event.ShortLabel and so on, as HTML, if they are prefixed by the "<%=%>" sequence. Shortly, an expression that starts with "<%=%>" is evaluated and its result is displayed in HTML format. For instance, the DefaultEventLongLabel property on "<%=%><%=%5%>
<%=%256%>", forces the expression to be re-evaluated and to display the new caption by applying new HTML tags found. By default, the %5 indicates the event's Caption property, so if it contains HTML tags they will be applied as is, instead displaying them as plain text. Instead, if the DefaultEventLongLabel property "<%=%5%>
<%=%256%>" displays on the first line the Caption of the Event, and on the second line the event's Start and End margins in short format. In case the Caption property includes HTML tags they will not be applied, as they will be displayed as plain text.

*Added: AllowSelectCreateEvent property specifies whether the newly created event gets selected or highlighted ( for s short period of time, 1 second )
*Added: Background(exScheduleAllDayEventScrollBackColor) property specifies the visual appearance to put on the all-day events header, when it contains scrolling events.

*Added: The CopyTo property copies the control's content to PDF format, if the extension of the File argument indicates a pdf extension. For instance, the CopyTo("c:\temp\snapshot.pdf") property saves the control's content in PDF format to snapshot.pdf. The control's content is serialized as it would have no scroll bars. The File argument could indicates more parameters separated by | character, in the following order: filename.pdf | paper size | margins | options where the filename indicates the name of the pdf to be saved, the paper size indicates the size of the paper to be used ( by default A4 paper, 8.27 in x 11.69 in ), margins defines the paper's margins ( by default, 0.5 in 0.5 in 0.5 in 0.5 in ) and options currently can be single which indicates that whole control is saved to a single paged PDF document. For instance, the CopyTo("c:\temp\snapshot.pdf|||single") exports the control's content to single page.

*Fixed: The pictures of a disabled event are not visible or shown at a different position, while the cursor hovers the event.
*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.

188.8.131.52 Aug 31, 2015
*NEW: Unlimited options to show any HTML text, images, colors, EBNs, patterns, frames anywhere on the event's background. Ability to draw additional EBN/Color/Text/Patterns/Images on the event, using the EBN String Format (create and run at runtime EBN objects)
*Added: Event.BodyBackgroundExt property indicates additional colors, text, patterns, images that can be displayed on the event's background using the EBN string format. For instance, Event.BackColorExt = "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 event. The Event.BackColorExt = "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 event (10%+12 pixels-wide from the object's client area).
