New Vista Style Task Dialog Control for ActiveX: A Windows Vista style Task Dialog control is now included with the SuitePro.

Xtreme Controls for ActiveX: ActiveX now includes a Vista style Task Dialog, TreeView, ListView, Hex Edit, Progress Bar, Scroll Bar, Tray Icon, Web Browser, Tip of the Day Dialog, Browse Folder Dialog, Window List Dialog, Masked Edit, Slider and Month Calendar controls.

Office 2007 Style HTML Super Tips: HTML tooltips allow valid snippets of HTML to be used to format tip windows.

Outlook 2007 Style Calendar Appointment Categories: Categories replace the old appointment labels and there can be several categories set to any appointment.

Excel Style Header and Footer Rows: Header and footer rows allows rows in the report to always remain visible at the top and bottom of the report.

Multiple In-place Property Grid Buttons: Each property grid item can have several buttons associated to make it easier for users to select data for the item.

Tabbed List and Tree View: Tabbed list and Tree view controls have the same functionality as a tab control, only they use an alternative method of navigation.

A great alternative to creating a series of confusing and difficult to understand dialog boxes with the MessageBox API would be to use a Vista Style Task Dialog. With a task dialog all the information a user needs to make an informed decision can be presented to them in an easy to understand and concise format. The design of the task dialog looks better and is much simpler, which improves usability by stating the purpose, providing self-explanatory responses, enabling expandable content for added instructions and rich text support to better layout information.

Xtreme Controls is now available for ActiveX as well as included with Xtreme Suite. ActiveX now includes a Vista style Task Dialog, Tree View, List View, Hex Edit, Progress Bar, Scroll Bar, Tray Icon, Web Browser, Tip of the Day Dialog, Browse Folder Dialog, Window List Dialog, Masked Edit, Slider and Month Calendar control. This comprehensive set of components has been designed to handle most any GUI application development requirement.

Office 2007 style HTML Super Tips allow HTML code snippets to be used to format the tip window. HTML features such as tables, font, color, image and many more can be used to create just about any style of tip needed.

Outlook 2007 style calendar appointment categories are what replaced the old label system. There can be several categories set to any appointment at the same time. Categories make it easy to organize appointments and see what category they belong to by assigning a color to the appointment.

Each property grid item can now have several buttons associated to make it easier for users to select data for the item. For example there might be a button for a drop-down list of image file names and another button to allow a browse folder dialog to open an image file not in the list.
Tabbed list and Tree view controls are just a fancy version of a tab control giving an alternative method of navigation. These use controls that users are already familiar with and put them to use navigating property sheets. The property sheets fully support the SkinFramework.

A complete list of all new features can be found in the release notes for each product, found on the company's website, http://www.codejock.com.
