> Hello,
> I'd like to announce new version of Eye-Candy Controls. I keep conservative numbering, so version is 0.1.11 but they are stable, at least on LCL-Qt (where I developed them). I had some problems with debugging under Wine but I guess it is related to Wine rather than ECC.
> It is a set of visual components based on Themes. Contains ruler, position-bar, image menu and visually atractive alternatives to TTrackBar, TProgressBar, TCheckBox, TRadioGroup, TCheckGroup, TSpeedButton, TEditButton, TColorEdit, TFloatSpinEdit and TUpDown with some extra options.
> News:
> License changed to modified LGPL
> TECScheme - new visual component for various configurations
> TBaseScrollControl - new abstract class for managing scrollbars (TECScheme is derived from it)
> TECSpeedBtn - now supports multiline Caption
> and more small improvements, see CHANGELOG.txt.
> Note (for those who do not have Lazarus - SVN and install ECC for the first time):
> ECControls requires following change in control.pp:
> these two methods must be virtual:
> line ~722 procedure GetSpaceAround(var SpaceAround: TRect); virtual;
> line ~724 function GetSpace(Kind: TAnchorKind): Integer; virtual;
> This is done in Lazarus trunk r.44805.
> That's all. Without it will package not compile.
> No matter if you have stable Lazarus (1.2) or trunk (1.3).
> No matter if you have stable FPC (2.6.4) or trunk (2.7.1)
> (but there were some patches to fpdoc which are not in 2.6.4,
>  so if you want to create html docs via attached script, you need 2.7.1).
> You can download preferably from SourceForge: http://sourceforge.net/projects/eccontrols/files/
> or alternatively from MediaFire: https://www.mediafire.com/#3odj0y75aogy8
> There are five archives now:
> ECC.zip - Eye Candy Control package
> ECC-Demo.zip - demo that shows possibilities of ECC (except TECScheme)
> ECScale-Demo.zip - demo that shows how to use TECScale inyour own components
> SchemeDesigner.zip - tool for designing of TECScheme (don't forget to try to attached demo.xml)
> ECSchemeDesc.zip - simple demo that shows how to create a visual component derived from TECScheme (overridden painting routines etc.)
> Note: I tested them on Qt, GTK2 and Win32 (Win). I never tried with Carbon. Feedback from Carbon testers is welcome.
> Thank you and have a nice day.
