Call for ADA95 samples 
One user suggested we should provide some ADA95 samples. But we don't have any experience of ADA. If you are using ADA95 with our products and want to share your works with others, please help us to provide some basic ADA95 samples.

Thanks in advance.

REALBasic is not so good as expected. 
REAL Software will offer "stranded" Visual Basic (VB) users free upgrades to REALbasic through March 31. I download REALBasic 5.5.5 and got a license key yesterday. I also found a good tutorial. I tested it with CheckListBox activex and Color ComboBox activex control.

The converter provided by REALBasic can convert most Visual Basic code into REALBasic, but if failed to convert activex control. It simply replaced the activex control wtih a canvas control. I still need to manually modify some code just like using VB.NET upgrade wizard. But the REALBasic's syntax is remarkably different with Vsiual Basic's, especially on ActiveX controls, so I need more time to learn it.

With my primary test, CheckListBox can be used at design time, but when my program was going to run, the control disappeared without any errors. Color ComboBox seemed all right with REALBasic. I'll test REALBasic later to know why.

CheckListBox 2.6 Service Pack 3 is available. 
A maintenance version of CheckListBox, Version 2.6 Service Pack 3, is released.

CheckListBox ActiveX Control provides support for listbox containing checkboxes, which is like the control that is built into Microsoft Word and Excel. In this control, each item's font, color, enabled and checked state can be individually modified. The control also supports 3D look, picture items and custom checkmark. This package includes samples written in Visual Basic, Visual Basic.NET, Visual C#, Visual C++, Microsoft Access and Internet Explorer. CheckListBox is also called Check List.

In this version, Microsoft Access samples are added. We test our product with Access 97, Access 2000, Access XP(2002) and Access 2003.

We also add three Visual Basic & Visual Basic.NET samples:
  • FindItem sample demonstrates how to find an item in the list.
  • OneCheck sample shows how to make sure only one item is checked.
  • Color sample shows how to list color choices.
    All samples are required by our value customers.

    We fix a bug that list items can't be sorted when Sorted is True and SortMode is clsStringAscending(#10021).

    Please download full-feature evaluation version from http://www.zealsoftstudio.com/checklistbox/.

    Registered user can download the upgrade version from http://www.zealsoft.com/upgrade/.

    Get MemAccess Library 1.3 Now! 
    MemAccess Library gives programmers control of hardware devices from Win32 application without using the Windows Drivers Development Kit (DDK). The tool allows real-time direct access to memory mapped I/O. Typical applications include ISA or PCI bus devices. MemAccess Library is also an ideal replacement of old BASIC Peek or Poke statement.

    In this version, we provide two ways to reduce complexity of program distribution. One way is merge module for Windows Installer 2.0, and the other one is stand-alone driver setup program. Both modules are provided only in the registered version. You can use the merge module in most setup utilities supporting Windows Installer technology, including InstallShield, Wise for Windows Installer, Visual Studio.NET, Visual Studio Installer, Installer2Go, ActiSetup 2005, and so on. Stand-alone driver setup program provides you one-click solution for distributing the DLL and kernel driver of MemAccess Library.

    We also provide better support for Borland products. Zeal SoftStudio is a Borland Technology Partner(BTP), so we keep our products compatible with the latest version of Borland products, including Borland Delphi for .NET 8.0, Borland Delphi 2005, and C#Builder.

    PowerBASIC samples are added into this version. PowerBASIC is one of most popular BASIC compilers. We wish all fans of PowerBASIC will enjoy our samples.

    Two small bugs are fixed:
    1) Fix the bug that C# samples will crash if the driver is not installed properly(#50009).
    2) Fix the bug that maOpenLibrary occasionally returns false even if the driver is running(#50010).

    Registered users can download the upgrade version at http://www.zealsoft.com/upgrade/. The full-feature evaluation version can be download at http://www.zealsoftstudio.com/memaccess/.
