Calendar Control Rik Brooks 9/2/96 5
This control implements a date selection via a calendar interface.

This complete calendar control is very easy to use as it employs a sophisticated method for automatically populating the new date into the field that requested the calendar.

Another Calendar Control which adds a few nice touches to the standard calendar type control.
Colour Picker Ken Howe 5/12/98 6
This is a colour picker userobject and window. The object can be used as a stand alone user object or in the response window. V2.0 created by Tim Dallmann of Greenbrier & Russel, Inc. This control has now become almost a small utility in its own right. It is very useful for copying Long Colour values for use in your PB code.
Database Tree Control Sameer Kulkarni 1/25/98 5
This is a TreeView control based on PowerBuilder's datawindow technology. The major benefit provided by the object is that it completely automates the task of retrieving data from the database and allowing user to navigate through it. Absolutely no coding is required. With this object, all you need to do is to give the names of related database objects which actually contain the data (tables from which the data comes, the primary key columns, columns to be actually displayed and the relationships between the tables in the form of foreign keys). The object works as a stand-alone component which can be used in plug-and-play mode.
Datawindow 4 Way Scroller Ken Howe 2/27/99 5
This object is a replacement for the scroll bar on a datawindow. It is useful for allowing Horizontal Scrolling without the need for a Horizontal scrollbar and allows you to reclaim screen real estate. You can see this control being put to good use in PBBrowse on the object display window.
Datawindow Search Ken Howe 6/12/99 5
This object is based on a single line edit control and allows the user to type characters to match against a datawindow column. The up and down arrows are also implemented to allow the user to scroll through the data. This object can be seen working in PBLaunch and PBBrowse.
Dropdown Multi Selector Ken Howe 9/3/05 9
This object provides a simple user control to allow single and multiple selection of values. I used this control in PBDelta v5 to provide the filters and folder selection within the File Explorer.
Gradient Control Ken Howe 3/27/98 5
This object and control will create a gradient background in a datawindow. You can specify the colour for the gradient. You will have seen this type of thing in most installation programs.

A visual control that acts like a hyperlink on a web page. This control support actions when the user click on the hyperlink.
Picture Mask PB5/6 or PB7 Bob Tarling 8/13/2000 5-7
This is a cool control by Bob Tarling based on the Treeview object. It allows you to mask colours from images so they match windows standard colours, however Bob has extended this to support animation of images based multiple frames stored within a single image. A PB5-6 and a separate PB7 version is available.
Split Screen Browser Panels Ken Howe 6/5/99 5
This is a set of objects to provide automatic object resizing like panels in a web browser or explorer. The object is placed between two other objects. When the users mouse passes over the control a drag cursor is shown. The mouse can then clicked and the bar dragged to a new location, the registered objects will be resized automatically. Double clicking on the bar will resize the objects equally.
Split Bar Explorer Marty Eichelman 5/10/97 5
This is a pair of objects (splitbar/explorer) designed to provide automatic object resizing like panels in a web browser. The object is placed between two other objects.

This is a generic toolbar control that can be used on any window type. It is especially useful because it can read the toolbar definition of an SDI window and create a toolbar automatically from the menu definition. It also supports the new coolbar look and transparent images. Now V2.1 with support for grey/colour hover just like IE.
