New features: 3 states checkboxes, cell invisibility and alternate row color blending

Dear developers,

AreaList Pro 9.1b9 is available at:

http://www.e-node.net/ftp/AreaListPro/9.1_Beta_version

This version, amongst others, adds three important features: 3 states checkboxes, cell invisibility and alternate row color blending (including RGB transparency, which is 100% supported in all ALP v9 features).

Many items have been added to the Troubleshooting and FAQs section in the manual. Check out pages 194 to 208.

ALP v9.1 b9 changes

  • •- fixed license dialog title (it is the product name again, not “License expired”)
  • •- fixed DisplayList window sizing
  • •- fixed enterability by popup (area had to be enterable by click)
  • •- improved drawing on Windows
  • •- fixed drawing of text with horizontal scaling value 1.0
  • •- modified internal caching of styles (caching native font instances should speed up drawing)
  • •- fixed scrollbars on Windows (sometimes dimmed until clicked)
  • •- modified alternate row coloring – cell’s background color is set as defined (from cell, row or column), then is combined with the alternate row color in case this other color is defined
  • •- added three-state checkbox display/entry for integer columns
  • • – column has to be of type Integer or Longint (not formatted as time)
  • • – column has to use checkbox for display (ALP_Column_DisplayControl equal to 0, 1 or 2 (default is -1))
  • • – column has to use checkbox for Boolean entry (ALP_Column_EntryControl equal to 0 or 1 (default is 0))
  • • — if entry control is set to 0 (checkbox w/o title), two state entry is allowed
  • • — if entry control is set to 1 (checkbox with title), three state entry is allowed
  • • ==> the entry control is never instantiated, change is immediate (on entry click)
  • •- added new property:
  • •property name: ALP_Cell_Invisible
  • •property value: “visi”
  • •property is read/write/persistent
  • •property type: Boolean
