extoolbar - what's new

13.0.0.4 May 09, 2018
*Added: The ShortcutKeyFormat property specifies the expression that determines the format (including HTML tags) to display the shortcut keys. For instance, ShortcutKeyFormat property on "`<font ;14>` + caption" defines a bigger font to display the shortcut keys. The new keywords the ShortcutKeyFormat property knows are: caption keyword indicates a string as it is displayed, sca keyword specifies whether SHIFT, CTRL or ALT keys are pressed in the shortcut, and keys keywords indicates the base ( and extended ) key(s) the shortcut is defined.
*Added: Item.Shortcut property can specify no modifier key, and so the item's shortcut became the parent's shortcut modifier plus the shortcut itself. For instance, if the parent item has the shortcut "CTRL + A", and the item's shortcut is "P", it indicates that the item's shortcut is actually "CTRL + A + P", which indicates that the item is selected as soon as the user presses the CTRL + A, and then P key. You can use this option to easily assign shortcut to items, by inheriting the parent's shortcut. At least one shortcut of any parent should have a modifier key, else the shortcut of the item itself can not be invoked.
*Added: The Item.Shortcut property supports combination of letters/digits without using + separator. For instance: "CTRL + AAP" is equivalent with "CTRL + A + A + P"
*Fixed: Closes all popups if the user presses the ALT + SPACE to show the system menu.

13.0.0.3 Jan 29, 2018
*Added: The ShortcutKeyPressedModifers property indicates the combination of modifier keys whose shortcut keys are currently visible. For instance, call the ShortcutKeyPressedModifers property on exModifierAny and the control will show all available shortcut keys, for any combination of modifier keys ( even if they are not pressed ), of if exModifierCtrl + exModifierAlt it shows all short cut keys available when user presses the CTRL + ALT
*Added: The ShortcutKeyTransparent property ondicates the percent of transparency the shortcut keys are being displayed with.

*Added: The Background(exShortcutKeyAppearance) specifies the visual appearance of the shortcut keys, using EBN objects

This is valid while the control's ShortcutKeyVisible property is exShowShortcutKeysToggle or exShowShortcutKeysToggleDelayed

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% )

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%.
