Visual Forms - Price change

I posted this on the newsgroups a couple of weeks ago but forgot to post it here.

In January the price for Visual Forms will increase from 35 Euros to 50 Euros. This change will not occur before January 15th. Not sure how long a price change takes to be accepted in Share-It.

A new beta version of the next Visual Forms update should be sent to registered users in the next day or so. Initial beta will only be for BDS2006 users because of some severe Open Tools limitations I have to work around in previous Delphi versions.

Have a safe new years everyone!

Christmas Break

I'm off for a couple of days over the Christmas period. Unfortunately orders cannot be processed over this time and support queries may also not be answered.

I'll be back processing orders and fulfilling support queries on the 27th of December.

Have a Happy Christmas and if driving a long way (or riding* in my case) - Drive Safely!

I'm just about to ride my bike 180kms this morning - at least I don't have to carry the presents with me!

TjsDialog - Released to preorders

The initial release of TjsDialog has been sent to everyone that preordered. Thanks to those folks.

The free/trial version will be available in the new year.

I will also put up some comparison images at this time. Feel free to also send me images of Vista dialogs and I'll post the image, the TjsDialog equivalent as well as the required TjsDialog code.

What to try an exe-demo?
  • Download exe-demo of TjsDialog. The demo zip file contains 2 files. The executable (TjsDialogDemo.exe) as well as a warning.rtf file. The demo requires this file for one of the dialogs.

December 20th is the official release day. The free version should also be available on this day for those that want to trial the component first. Remember the free version is only for non-commercial applications. To view the non-commercial license, please click here.

Currently on BDS 2006 is supported. This includes the Turbo products. Delphi6, 7 and 2005 will also be supported with the full release version, as will a VCL.NET under BDS 2006.

The free version will not work with VCL.NET. You must purchase the full version to use with VCL.NET.

NOTE: This dialog does NOT currently wrap the official TaskDialog and TaskDialogIndirect API functions on Vista.

While this is planned as a free update to the dialog functionality, some options cannot be emulated by the official Vista API functions.

The importance of this feature will be determined by users.
