expropertieslist - what's new

12.0.0.3 Nov 17, 2017
*NEW:   Unlimited options to show any HTML text, images, colors, EBNs, patterns, frames anywhere on the property's background. Ability to draw additional EBN/Color/Text/Patterns/Images on the property, using the EBN String Format (create and run at runtime EBN objects)
*Added: Property.CellBackgroundExt(Column) property indicates additional colors, text, patterns, images that can be displayed on the property's background using the EBN string format. For instance, Property.CellBackgroundExt(0) = "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 property. The Property.BackColorExt = "bottom[10%+12,back=RGB(255,0,0),text=`<img>alert</img><b>Alert!`,align=0x11]" displays the alert picture and the Alert! caption as bold, on the RED background, on the bottom portion of the property (10%+12 pixels-wide from the object's client area). 
*Added: Property.CellBackgroundExtValue(Column,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 CellBackgroundExt property is set. The CellBackgroundExtValue property allows you to change programmatically, the properties of the parts that composes the EBN object. For instance, CellBackgroundExtValue(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 CellBackgroundExtValue 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 BackColorExt/BackColorExtValue properties.

12.0.0.2 Oct 25, 2017
*NEW:   Support for EBN 1003 version.
*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: The Handle parameter of Images method can be a string that specifies the ICO file to be loaded. The ICO file format is an image file format for computer icons in Microsoft Windows. ICO files contain one or more small images at multiple sizes and color depths, such that they may be scaled appropriately. For instance, Images("e:\working\sync.ico") method  adds the sync.ico file to the control's Images collection.
*Fixed: 0 or -1 is displayed for properties of boolean type

12.0.0.1 Jul 12, 2017
*Added: DPI-Aware Support
*NEW:   Support for EBN 1004 version ( DPI-Aware support ).
*Added: The exClientExt attribute of the EBN/BackgroundExt/BackgroundExtValue supports DPI values, if the number is followed by a D character. For instance, if the DPI scaling is 100%, the 16d is 16, while for a 150% DPI scaling, the 16d is 24. In other words, "top[4,back=RGB(0,0,255)]", draws a blue line on the top side of the object's background, of 4-pixels wide, no matter of DPI scaling, while "top[4D,back=RGB(0,0,255)]", draws the line of 4-pixels wide if DPI scaling is 100%, or 6-pixels wide if DPI scaling is 150% )
*Added: The coordinates of the CP clause of the Skin parameter of VisualAppearance.Add method can be followed by a D character, which indicates the value according to the current DPI settings. For instance, "CP:1 -2 -2 2 2", copies the EBN with the identifier 1, and displays it on a 2-pixels wider rectangle no matter of the DPI settings, while "CP:1 -2D -2D 2D 2D" displays it on a 2-pixels wider rectangle if DPI settings is 100%, and on on a 3-pixels wider rectangle if DPI settings is 150%.
*Added: The expression properties support `dpi`, `dpix` and `dpiy` constants that returns the current DPI setting on x/y scale. For instance, the "value * dpi" returns the value if the DPI setting is 100%, or value * 1.5 in case, the DPI setting is 150%

11.0.0.7 Jun 05, 2017
*NEW:   Ability to display the properties using single or multiple lines
*Added: Property.SingleLine property. Displays the property's name or value using one or more lines.

AT products work with MSAA enabled applications in order to provide better access for individuals who have physical or cognitive difficulties, impairments, or disabilities.
*Added: Template\New contains all code required to spy any exontrol component on the form. Just place the eXPropertiesList/COM next to any exontrol component on your form, right click, select Template page, click New, Apply, OK, and then run the form. Click the Spy icon, and drag over the exontrol component you want to browse. The eXPropertisList will browse all properties and objects of the component being selected.

*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.

For instance, the Add("Item*(HITEM)", Array(G2antt1.Items, G2antt1.Items.FirstVisibleItem), EditPropertyWildcardParent) adds all properties that starts with Item and contains a single parameter with HITEM type. The EditPropertyWildcard adds new properties as flat, and the Add returns the last added property, while the EditPropertyWildcardParent adds a new parent and the new properties added as child as this property, and the result, is the newly parent created.   
*Added: Template parameter for Add method, that indicates the inside template to be applied to the property. The Template can be used to apply a Template to new properties being added using the Add method.
