The OSControl Xtra adds a couple of long awaited member types to Macromedia Director: boxes, dropdown lists/popup menus, contextual menus, scroll bars, push buttons, bevel buttons, progress bars, 'little arrow'-buttons, sliders, radio buttons and checkboxes.
Unlike Director's built-in controls and Flash MX's UI Components, OSControls all are drawn in the OS appearance as set by the user. These controls are truly cross-platform: on a Macintosh they look and behave like real Macintosh controls, on a PC running Windows they look and behave like real Windows controls. The OSControl Xtra is ideal for rapid prototyping, making 'real' looking cross platform applications and many other Director projects.
The OSControl Xtra will pay for itself almost immediately because of the valuable development time it will save.
What is new in this release:
Support for native Windows XP controls
OSControl now fully supports native Windows XP controls giving your interface the look and feel of a true XP application when running on that platform.
OSmenus extended to support hierarchical menus
The OSmenu control now supports easy to create and manage hierarchical sub-menus.
A tab control giving you even more flexibility to build professional interface designs.
Improved Lingo control of OSmenus and OSpopupMenus
This is a significant enhancement on the ability to control OSmenus and OSpopupMenus directly from Lingo, providing more ways of setting and getting control properties to change the menu on fly.
Tighter integration between OSscrollbar sprites and text and field members
You can now tell your OSscrollbar which field or text member should be scrolled without having to explicitly adding behaviors to them.
Minor enhancements include:
New thumbnails that show more information on a particular member.
Each OScontrol member now has its own media type icon.
ShowProps() has been expanded to provide more information and methods.
Clicking an OSslider's track on MacOS X and Windows makes the thumb directly jump to the correct index
InitProps is now redundant. A completely new span-checking mechanism takes care of re-initialization of sprite properties.
OSmenu and OSpopupMenu sprites now support the "Click()" handler.
Macromedia Director 7 or higher
