a question has been raised before whether we can fully justify in an rtf control but i am currently busy with enhancing my classes plus creating new ones i can think of to add beauty to a form’s appearance that i simply tuck this question away at the back of my mind for later retrieval and playing.

so after the 8 classes is posted,
i opened up my rtf control here and much to my dismay, i believe it… Continue reading

note:  updates of my ss classes can be seen here: http://www.junblogs.com/

who have read my latest blogs on my ss classes are now
familiar with what i am toying with these days. 
i really found it good myself in terms of making it possible to turn my

actually after creating the ssdtpicker, i already moved on working with the sstbnextgen class.  i finished the initial class with 7 themes after a few hours as i believe you knew now how fast i work when i feel doing a thing with of course no distraction.  on the same date i also started playing with the gui for the ssbutton which i also have in mind to complete the much needed makeup of a plain vfp exe.… Continue reading

i have been silent these last few days inside the forum as my interest currently lies with providing interested users better tools.  and since i recently provided classes with different themes and since the responses with those are very positive; i decided to continue creating new classes that might help others who have problem with visual design.

but sometimes creating new classes doesn’t necessarily mean that it is entirely new as can be seen with what i am going… Continue reading

this tutorial is for the current or future switchbox’ users.  still on the who’s who stage, you will not find any attachment here.  what you will find here is the way how to transform the switchbox into an optionswitch.  let us take a look first at a couple of images below:

“coincidentally”, the selection itself shows one difference of optionswitch as against optoingroup.  it  is more colorful.  in addition, it doesn’t have the ugly lines around the caption.… Continue reading

i made the other day the sscal class and i thought to myself, who or what is keeping me from creating a datetime picker?  and the answer is no one and nothing.  and so you are seeing now the newly created ssdtpicker class.

brief introduction to some features:

1.  well of course, first and foremost would be, it is 100% native vfp.

2.  it comes with a variety of 5 colors again.  on normal stage (when calendar is not… Continue reading

the other day, i started playing with one of my old programs to implement the switchbox class i recently created as i wanted to see how it will look in an actual application that is being utilized.  so i opened my ergox and started toying with the gui.  in the process though, it looks like that my old gui on the main form itself is not that satisfying anymore to me.  so i moved objects around ("really?  it… Continue reading

i have made further enhancements (2 new themes) and modifications (like renaming _type to _theme, removing _ivalue, allowing _value to accept either a logical or integer value then return the same, and some more) inside the class so i decided to rewrite this blog instead of cluttering the bottom part with lots of updates/notes; here which will make it longer.  so here is the revised blog:

as i have said before, i love simple things… Continue reading

i have shown easy ways of importing and exporting from word to rtf and vice versa in my past few blogs regarding rtf and automation.  what i have not mentioned is what will happen when a  word document has a table inside.

what will happen is the rtf control will not respect the boundaries of both cells and the tables itself.  see the image below (standard way):
