Several products of interest to developers and programmers have been released or updated.
One is PG_Tooltip for REALbasic, the development environment from
Real Software. With PG_Tooltip you get a Tooltip-Engine for Mac OS and Mac OS X that lets you add tooltips for your controls.
This package includes all classes and modules for using tooltips inside your own REALbasic projects. It also contains a sample window with the basic functionality and IDE-Extras for the use with REALbasic 4.x. A full functional demo is
available for download.
Speaking of REALbasic, Mike Murray has updated REALdocbuilder, a utility for REALbasic developers designed to make it easy to generate HTML documentation for your REALbasic projects.
The update has completely re-written code and a new graphical user interface. It now creates documentation for your entire project. REALdocbuilder is template-based to make it easy to custom the generated HTML files. You can now write your documentation in either WYSIWYG or HTML. WYSIWYG text will then be converted to HTML.
The software and its source code is released under the GPL. You may use the software or source code for any purpose, as long as all code where a major portion is derived from this code, is also released under the GPL. REALdocbuilder
can be downloaded.
Next week, 24U is going to release a new version of 24U SimpleDialog Plug-In 1.2, a cross-platform plug-in for FileMaker Pro that lets you display almost arbitrary dialog box, pop-up menus, combine text, passwords, checkboxes, radio buttons.
Version 1.2 introduces text field format validation, including Social Security Number, Social Insurance Number and Credit Card number validation. Details and pricing info can be found at the
24U Web site.
