CaptionX Publisher's description
from 10Tec Company
Place icons that work like command buttons in a window's title bar
The CaptionX control was developed to help you place icons that work like command buttons in a window's title bar to the right of the standard buttons Minimize, Maximize and Close. The component also provides you with the ability to draw at the title area so you can place here formatted text or even graphics.
Here are some key features of "CaptionX":
В· This component supports all types of VB windows - sizable, dialog or tool windows (the BorderStyle property in VB) and takes into account the visibility of the Minimize, Maximize and What's This buttons; it can be used in MDI parent and child windows; it even supports Windows XP styled borders of windows!
В· Each caption icon can have its own tooltip that displays tip text and optionally title and icon; you can also adjust such common tooltips parameters as style (balloon or standard rectangular), visible and delay time.
В· A window's caption text can be drawn by CaptionX or by the developer (this feature is also known as custom drawing); in the last case you can draw your own formatted text using different colors and fonts or even place pictures in window caption.
В· CaptionX was designed specially for Visual Basic 6 forms as an ActiveX control invisible at run-time. It is based on intercepting window nonclient area messages of VB forms package and cannot be used with other types of forms which support ActiveX controls (.NET Windows Forms, UserForms in VBA in MS Word and Excel and so on).
В· Nag screen
What's New in This Release:
В· [New] Now CaptionX supports right-to-left captions of the VB forms (the RightToLeft property is set to True).
В· [Fixed] The caption text was drawn incorrectly on some non-English systems. Now the full range of Unicode characters can be used in the caption on the Windows NT systems.
В· [Fixed] If you used the ampersand character in a form's caption, it was not drawn, and the next letter was underscored.
