Alfred Van Hoek has refreshed three of his REALbasic plug-ins: HTMLrendering Plug-in 2.2, cIconButtons Plug-in 2.1 and NavDialog Plug-in 2.7. All are now
available for download.
HTMLrendering exploits the HTML rendering capabilities of the Mac. cIconButtons is a plug-in that groups various buttons into one control; you can also add additional buttons on the fly. NavDialog is a plug-in designed to provide better support for the Navigation Services available in the Mac operating system. Users of this plug-in can select multiple files or select multiple folders.
Meanwhile, Einhugur Software has released TimeControl 1.0, a plug-in for REALbasic. Like its sister control (DateControl), TimeControl is a platform native time control plug-in.
The control is displayed according to control panel time settings on all target platforms, which includes the traditional Mac operating system, Mac OS X and Windows 98/ME/2000/XP. The control can also optionally display seconds. Full versions and free demos are available at the
Einhugur Web site.
Also new for REALBasic is the
CFPlugin, which wraps up most of the CoreFoundation classes into one plug-in, along with providing access to the Property List services for creating and parsing .plist files. CFPlugin provides the following classes: CFArray, CFBoolean, CFData, CFDictionary, CFNumber, and CFString.
It also provides the class CFObject, which doesn’t correspond to any toolbox CoreFoundation class but is used as the superclass. What’s more, CFPlugin provides access to making and parsing .plists with the following functions: CFCreatePropertyList and CFParsePropertyList.
