New after version 16
|Top Previous Next|
▪improvements in line breaking algorithm (in some cases, lines may wrap differently)
▪when choosing format while inserting data as a result of OLE drag&drop, the editor gives a higher priority to URL than it was before
▪because of "deactivation" of images (see below), you cannot store a pointer to images (TGraphic objects), because the image can be "deactivated" and TGraphic object can be destroyed
▪because of "deactivation" of images, all TGraphic objects used in TRichView must implement SaveToStream and LoadToStream methods (there are some third-party graphic classes that can load themselves but cannot save).
▪TRichView.RTFReadProperties.StoreImagesFileNames property is removed.
New feature: colors of groups or rows and columns (alternate colors). New properties:
▪HeadingRowColor, LastRowColor, FirstColumnColor, LastColumnColor, EvenColumnsColor, OddRowsColor, OddColumnsColor, EvenRowsColor;
New property: CellOverrideColor.
New DocObjects property allows saving custom objects in RVF.
"Widow and orphan control" is implemented, see rvpaoWidowOrphanControl option of paragraphs.
New option rvoDragDropPicturesFromLinks for TRichViewEdit.EditorOptions. If included, and the dropped URL is a link to a picture, the editor attempts to insert it as a picture, not as a link.
New property is added to text styles: EmptyWidth. It defines width of empty text items of this style. Text items of this style are processed specially in editor. They allow implementing editable fields in documents. The demo "Assorted\Fields\FillInGaps" is changed to use EmptyWidth.
Starting from this version, TRichView deactivates rarely used images (i.e. stores them to memory streams and destroys their graphic objects). This feature allows saving GDI resources and memory.
New RichViewMaxPictureCount global variable.
Loading external images
A new option is added to TRichView.Options: rvoAssignImageFileNames. If included, the component assigns "image file name" properties when reading external images. Previously, RTFReadProperties.StoreImagesFileNames was used for this purpose for external images in RTF; this property is removed.
New event: OnAssignImageFileName allows modifying file names before assigning to items/cells.
New TRichView event: OnCMHintShow allows displaying custom hints.
Text flow options (ClearLeft and ClearRight) are shown as vertical lines around paragraph/line-break marks, if rvoShowSpecialCharacters is included in TRichView.Options. Text flow options can be exported to DocX.
New method TRVStyleTemplateCollection.InsertFromRVST, it allows applying styles from a file to existing documents.
Packages are separated into runtime and designtime packages.
