JSDialog - Snap to it!

One feature request for a future TJSDialog release was to support the feature in Microsoft Windows that moves the mouse to the default button when a dialog is displayed.

I'm pleased to announce that the new version of TJSDialog that should be released today adds support for this functionality.

This is feature I've generally glossed over and never really taken the time to get used to it. However since I had to have the feature switched on for testing, I've gotten used to it and I think I might keep it on.

Interesting footnote, why do two tabs have the hot theme style at the same time. That shouldn't happen!


NEW: ActionManager Style - VISTA

Well I've been sitting on this style for about 6 or 7 months now and I've decided to share it.

This is a style the mimics the Microsoft Windows Vista menu style in Notepad and WordPad (amongst other applications). This style includes a menu bar with a gradient applied and menu items, sub menus are positioned different to previous menu styles.

Here is an example of the style in action:

The cost will be 10 Euros and payment will be via paypal (or can be arranged by other means if necessary).

I'll create a webpage with a downloadable demo app and post here when done.

A couple more blog posts still to come today...
