HMG Extended Edition version 21.07 is published

Post by gfilatov »

Hi Friends,

We are pleased to announce a new build of Harbour MiniGUI Extended
Edition.

Here's a breakdown of some of the modifications in the build 21.07.
For the full list, please see the changelog.
* Minor correction in the method VarPut() of the Harbour TGet class.
It fixes the following problem: GetBox control do not execute the
'On Change' procedure after assigning a value at the calling of
the function SetProperty ( Form, GetBox, 'Value', xValue ).

* Fixed a missing PICTURE clause handling in the BROWSE control at the
alternative syntax.

* A Star Rating is a type of rating question that allows users to rank
attributes on a 5- or 10-point scale represented with stars.
It is a 5-point matrix question, but instead of radio buttons or
checkboxes, stars are used to represent it.
Syntax:
@ <row>,<col> RATING <name> [ OF <parent> ] ;
[ WIDTH <w> ] ;
[ HEIGHT <h> ] ;
[ PICTURE { "image1.png", "image2.png" } ] ;
[ FROM RESOURCE ] ;
[ STARS <count> ] ;
[ RATE <value> ] ;
[ SPACING <space> ] ;
[ ON CHANGE <change> ] ;
[ TOOLTIP <tooltip> ] ;
[ BORDER ] ;
[ VERTICAL ] ;
[ READONLY ]
There is the read/write 'Value' property for this control.

* Added a new method 'GetArray' for retrieving of array for ComboBox,
Grid, ListBox at runtime.

* Added new command for managing delimiter in the function HMG_Alert():
SET ALERT EOL [ NORMAL | STANDARD ]
The default is STANDARD: '|' symbol for Greek language and ';' -
for others.

* Added the disabled 'Checked On' state in the SWITCHER control.
It is now a fully functional Windows 10 control.

* INI file - added the following new commands:
- GET BEGIN COMMENT TO <uVar>;
- GET END COMMENT TO <uVar>;
- SET BEGIN COMMENT TO <uVal>;
- SET END COMMENT TO <uVal>;
and the corresponding functions:
- GetBeginComment() and SetBeginComment() to get/set a comment at
the first line of an INI file;
- GetEndComment() and SetEndComment() to get/set a comment at the
last line of an INI file.

* Updated DO REPORT command:
- added the ability to define the fontname used to print the report;
- implementation some internationalization of the few messages that
are displayed during the report creation (please, add translation
in your language).

* The function AlertRetryCancel() is localized now.

* Updated HMGS-IDE v.1.4.4.4, GraphPlus and Shell32 libraries.

* Added the new interesting samples and updated some examples.
There are the separate versions of the MiniGUI library for ANSI and
UNICODE characters.

A setup of the ANSI build 21.07 for Borland C++ 5.8.2 is published at
the following URL:

http://hmgextended.com/files/CONTRIB/hm ... -setup.exe

There is also an extra donationware Minigui Ex build for the
Embarcadero C++ 10.2 ‘Tokyo’ compiler.

It is a regularly scheduled maintenance release.

This release is considered stable and ready for production use.

The upgrade to this build is recommended.
