Noyantis TaskPanel Wrapper Template for the Codejock Xtreme TaskPanel 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.

Codejock Software's Xtreme TaskPanel provides Windows developers with a sophisticated Office Task Panel similar to what is seen in Microsoft? Office and Windows Explorer.

The TaskPanel is a very versatile control giving developers many options. Developers can choose to have the TaskPanel look and feel like a Visual Studio .NET Tool Box, Windows Explorer TaskPanel, or an old style Outlook bar. In addition to changing the behavior or the TaskPanel, you can choose from many different built in themes that affect each TaskPanel behavior differently. You can choose from themes such as Visual Studio 2005 ?Whidbey?, Office 2003, and Windows XP.

With the Task Panel's grouping feature you can easily manage your application shortcuts and have a unique way of displaying information to your users. Groups of items can be expanded or hidden with the click of a mouse.

Customization is painless. Users can edit the contents of items with the built in edit box. This allows them to name groups and items to whatever they choose.

Full ?drag and drop? support makes organizing items in the task panel quick and easy. Users can move items to the desired location with a simple drag and drop. Helpful indicators are displayed telling the user where items can be dropped as they drag them around within the groups of the TaskPanel.

Toggle buttons can even be used to indicate that multiple items are selected at the same time.

As users navigate through the groups in the TaskPanel they will enjoy stunning animations as your items are displayed. Items can be presented as text or as icons.

With the built-in ImageManager control, you can easily add 32 bit Alpha Icons to your TaskPanel.

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.
