Common controlsDLL Debugging Repository indexing from within the repository Other very nice features that have been added include the Application Gallery which conveniently offers a Tabbed Window selection of Standard, Basic, OLE server, Internet and Sample app templates. The number of sample apps has been increased and the simplicity of the Gallery literally encourages you to try and experiment with these samples (and templates). I also understand that the plan is to increase the number of papers (i.e. available through the "How to " section in on-line help) on how to use some of the more esoteric samples.There is also a new optional Splash Screen feature and another useful option ) that allows you to force the user to see the contents of any readme file. The Application Gallery is completely configurable via Appgal.inf and essentially reduces the creation of a whole range of different types of apps and samples to a couple of mouse clicks.The Source Editor has a what looks to be a very useful feature that drops down a box of methods that are available for the class that you have just typed in (i.e. Self: gives a list of me:methods() which, when selected in turn gives you a list of the typed parameters that your selection expects. Importantly, this drop-box doesnt interfere with typing and simply refines its list to match the characters typed so far. At any time during typing hitting return selects the current highlighted item .The DataListview is a welcome new control. This works like a Listview control on the toolbox of the WED but has the difference in that there is a property to hook it up to a DBServer and get an immediate columnar display by field. A number of improvements had been made to the compiler and linking that result in more efficient code.
The standard edition is being dropped. The new pricing structure will be as follows
