Noyantis CommandBars Wrapper Template for the Codejock Xtreme CommandBars ActiveX control.

The template is extremely easy to add to your application. It supports from C6 through to C10 and is both ABC and Legacy compatible. Of course, as you would expect it can be added to multi-dll applications as well as single applications. It consists of various global, window, extension and code templates as well as a very feature rich class.

Demo applications that show some of the more "exciting" features are included in the installer to help you maximise the most out of your investment as fast as possible.

The template is continually being updated due to the progressive development of the actual ActiveX control. This does mean from time to time that a particular feature within the control might not be covered directly by the template. We will of course add new updates to cover these features in future builds but, to make sure you're not left waiting around, we include a set of extra methods within the class to allow you to communicate directly with the control.

We offer email support, we actively monitor and interact with the Clarion newsgroups and even hold a monthly User Group webinar thanks to the generosity of the guys over at ClarionLive.

Xtreme CommandBars provides Windows developers with sophisticated Office style command bars and One Note style MDI tab windows. Full Menu and toolbar customization provides developers with the ability to easily add features such as popup toolbars, tear-off menus, intelligent menus, popup menus, toggle buttons, split-button popups, and much more! The customization manager allows users to effortlessly customize menus and toolbars with features such as drag and drop customization, image editor with alpha icon support, hotkey assignments, and user defined toolbars allowing the user to tailor the application to their needs. Built in menu and toolbar theme support will allow you to choose from predefined themes such as Windows XP, Office XP, Office 2003, Visual Studio .NET, Whidbey, or Office 2000. In addition to the themes provided for the menu and toolbars, there are several additional styles that can be applied to MDI tabs including Excel, Office 2003, Visio, and Visual Studio. Included is an ImageManager control that provides an easy to use UI for adding images to your application. The ImageManager provides many additional features such as Alpha Icon support as well as Hot, Disabled, and Normal state icons. With the ImageManager you have the ability to enter multiple image sizes for your menu and toolbars, allowing you to have different image sizes for your menu icons, toolbar icons, and large toolbar icons. Xtreme CommandBars can even save and load menu and toolbar layouts after they have been customized.

With the Office 2007 style Ribbon Bar component users will no longer need to fumble through confusing and boring menus. Xtreme RibbonBar includes enhanced navigation capabilities by grouping menu and toolbar commands into logical blocks that are arranged in tabular format. The Ribbon Bar includes the Luna (blue), Obsidian (black) and the Aqua Office 12 Beta 1 themes.

The Office 2007 style gallery control can be used in and toolbar, ribbon group, or popup menu. The gallery control displays a collection of picture or text items that can be scrolled and displayed in your popup menu, standard toolbar, or ribbon group. For example, a gallery can be used to create an Office 2007 font or size popup drop-down menu and popup color selector.

Both the Ribbon and Commandbars use Office 2007 style animation and fade effects when displaying popup menus, on mouse over, checking and un-checking items, scrollbar effects, and transitions between ribbon groups.

Please note, the Codejock ActiveX control is not included in this product - the template is a wrapper only for the control.

While we're always here to help, some questions can be quickly answered by simply pointing you in the right direction. Below are a few of the more common questions that are asked.

The only extra file you need to ship with your application is the actual Codejock ActiveX file itself. The OCX file is located within the "Bin" directory of your Codejock installation.

Like any ActiveX control, the Codejock ActiveX control needs to be registered within windows. This can be accomplished in a number of different ways, these include:-

  • Have your installation scripts perform this task (eg, SetupBuilder by Lindersoft)
  • Use RegFree COM technology (for Clarion 9.1 onward users)
  • Have your application perform the registration
    (your application will need to be run with sufficient access rights within windows)

Within the "Bin" directory of your Codejock installation, a Licence file (".lic") will exist. This includes your individual "Validation Code". The contents of this file, especially the "Validation Code" needs to be compiled into your application. To accomplish this follow these steps:-

  • Go to the Global Extension template.
  • Go to the Global Extension ActiveX Licence tab.
  • Select the "Compile Licence Into Application" option.
  • There are 3 entries - "Copyright", "Product ID" and "Validation" The first two entries will be disabled if a pre-defined Codejock version has been selected on the "General" tab. Copy the contents of the licence file into the related entries EXACTLY.
  • Recompile your application.

Now, your Codejock licence details will be compiled into your application.

Yes, all of the Codejock ActiveX controls support multiple languages and are shipped with over 30 different language support files.

To use a language other than English (default language), simply specify the name of the language file in the "Language Resource" entry on the "General" tab of the Global Extension template.

The Global Extension template only needs to be added to the apps that contain procedures that utilize the control.
