Noyantis DockingPane Wrapper Template for the Codejock Xtreme DockingPane 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 DockingPane provides Windows developers with a sophisticated Visual Studio .NET? style docking pane. Windows developers can easily create tear off tabs, auto hide windows, and nested groups of panes that allow for a more manageable application workspace. To further help utilize your workspace area, auto-hide floating panes can be used. When panes are dragged within your application a visual clue is displayed representing where the docking pane will be positioned allowing the user to easily see where the pane can be docked. Xtreme DockingPane also includes Visual Studio 2005 ?Whidbey? style docking! Whidbey style docking provides a stylish interactive UI when docking your pane. Built-in docking pane theme support will allow you to choose from predefined themes such as Excel, Visio, Windows XP, Office XP, Office 2003, Visual Studio.NET, Whidbey, Visual Studio 2005, Explorer, or Office 2000. In addition to the themes provided for the docking panes, a different theme can be applied to auto-hide tabs. Themes can even be applied to floating panes allowing you to fully theme every part of your docking panes! Xtreme DockingPane also has the ?cascading? ability seen in Visual Studio. In addition to standard pane caption buttons, a customizable drop down button is included for custom menus. Xtreme DockingPane can even save and load pane layouts after they have been dragged and dropped.

Product Features

  • You can use Xtreme DockingPane to group windows in a tab style arrangement and display them in any arrangement docked to any side of your application workspace. The docking panes can be grouped together or docked inside one another to make the best use of available workspace.

  • You can use Xtreme DockingPane to create tabbed dockable windows that you can locate along any side of your application workspace. These tabbed windows allow you to drag and ?Tear Off? any of the individual tabs to create new windows that can either float or dock along the side of your application workspace. You can also drag and drop to combine windows which will create a new tab in each dockable window. An outline is drawn to depict where your window will be located when you tear off or combine.
  • Xtreme DockingPane provides your application with full Office 2003, Visual Studio 2005, Whidbey, and Windows XP theme support that gives your application the closest, most exact current themes of any 3rd party tool available today.
  • Codejock Software's Xtreme DockingPane gives your application the power of WYSIWYG (what you see is what you get) style docking panes. You can create docking and splitting windows that are similar to Visual Studio .NET or Microsoft Visio. This gives you the ability to dock your windows to any side of your application's desktop while a visual clue is displayed representing where the docking pane will be positioned.
  • Codejock Software's Xtreme DockingPane provides support for floating and docking window panes. You can easily float your docked pane or dock your floating pane to any side of your applications workspace area, or to any side of any docking pane!
  • Codejock Software's Xtreme DockingPane allows you to easily hide and show panes to optimize your application workspace. You can hide your docked or floating panes at runtime easily by pressing the small ?x? located at the upper right side of the caption area. You can also add commands to display and hide your panes thru your application menu.
  • Codejock Software's Xtreme DockingPane product provides Auto Hide Windows that are similar to Visual Studio.NET and Microsoft Visio application environments. These Auto Hide Windows provide a unique way for you to make the most of your application's desktop by hiding or showing windows with simple mouse movements. You can easily change the animation delay of the auto hide windows so your windows hide/show at the perfect speed.
  • Supports Visual Studio 2005 ?Whidbey? style docking.


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.
