Nice job, Shawn and Rod.

however, a little nitpick. The icons.kix file will not change the icon on the Eit button if I move from icon to icon via the cursor keys. However, selecting by mouse works well. From the documentatio I gather that selecting via cursors is not yet supported as it only has the OnClick/OnDoubleClick events. It might need a OnGotFocus/OnLostfocus, too in order to control events that might happen while scolling through a listview via cursors.

The latest Kixforms Beta 3 Special Build 2 is now available ... it addresses the following issues ...

1) Incorrect default StartPosition of Form.

2) Incorrect painting of TabControl background

Hopefully these are the only issues with the Beta, I encourage you to report anything else suspicious .. thanks

I might be blind but where is it? The download section contains the older beta 3 version.

Jooel: So, where is it? http://www.kixforms.org/assets/index.htm only lists the DLL from July-6.

The KiXforms DLL on the downloads page is the latest and greatest version which is publicly available. The Special Build number is only visible when looking at the properties of the DLL. Special builds 1 and 2 were only available for a very short period of time as they both suffered issues, especially with the TabControl. The fact that they were quickly superseded was not heavily advertised as so few people actually had the opportunity to download one of the older defective libraries.

Rod.

now shawn, I would need to ask how long you want to keep the beta 3 in the name?

I remember the long discussions we had about versioning...
what about increasing the beta number too when publicly giving new beta ver?

It seems that the datestamp of the DLL threw me off as the datestamp is set to 7-6-2003. I also have a KiXforms 2.3.0.42 with datestamp 7-28-03 directly from Shawn to test a specific problem. I would have expected that a new KiXforms release would have a recent August-2003 datestamp.

The DrawImage function is just some early testing of one of many functions that will be exposed through the Kixtart.Drawing namespace, which is just starting to get fleshed-out now. DrawImage doesn't work right now because the Icon and Bitmaps objects are not exposed.

In terms of versioning, thought we were doing pretty good in that regard. I think the current strategy we have of incrementing the build numbers, and using them to identify beta's etc, is working well. Even used the Special Build number to mark the special beta 3 builds.
