Update of ScaleRichView and SRVControls

Post by Sergey Tkachenko »

New version of ScaleRichView and SRVControls include packages for Delphi and C++Builder XE.

ScaleRichView

A user interface for the ScaleRichView text processing components can be built using RichViewActions. The same actions can be used both for TRichViewEdit and for ScaleRichView, except for the printing actions. The printing actions (TsrvActionPrint, TsrvActionQuickPrint, TsrvActionPageSetup) were introduced in ScaleRichView 3.0.
In this version, we included 18 new actions created specially for ScaleRichView:
  • actions for changing viewing modes (TsrvActionLayoutDraft, TsrvActionLayoutWeb, TsrvActionLayoutPrint)
  • actions for zooming (TsrvActionZoom, TsrvActionZoomPageWidth, TsrvActionZoomFullPage)
  • action for switching to print preview mode (TsrvActionPreview)
  • action for showing/hiding page thumbnails (TsrvActionThumbnails)
  • actions for changing page parameters (TsrvActionPageFormat, TsrvActionOrientationPortrait, TsrvActionOrientationLandscape)
  • actions for working with headers and footers (TsrvActionEditHeader, TsrvActionEditFooter, TsrvActionEditMain)
  • actions for working with footnotes and endnotes (TsrvActionInsertFootnote, TsrvActionInsertEndnote, TsrvActionEditNote, TsrvActionReturnToNote)
In addition, TsrvActionPageSetup can define the positions of a header and a footer.
Because of these new actions, the ActionTest demo for ScaleRichView was greatly simplified, has new functionality, is completely localizable.

In this version, ScaleRichView editor allows editing footnotes and endnotes. This new feature is full-functional (but it still needs to be optimized). Limitation: a text of a footnote or an endnote must not exceed a page height, because page breaks inside text of notes are not supported (TRichViewEdit has this limitation only for footnotes).

ScaleRichView editor can be zoomed in and out using the mouse wheel (if the user presses and holds Ctrl key).

SRVControls

SRVControls is a set of components created for insertion in ScaleRichView editor (but they can be used on a form as well).
In ScaleRichView version 3.0, we already included TSRVButton, TSRVCheckBox, TSRVEdit, TSRVGroupBox, TSRVLabel, TSRVPaintBox, TSRVPanel, TSRVRadioButton.

In this update, we included 3 new controls: TSRVComboBox, TSRVListBox and TSRVImagesScroll.
TSRVComboBox, TSRVListBox are not just analogs of TComboBox and TListBox. In these lists, items are not simple text. They can contain images, checkboxes (for list box), text with custom fonts and colors. Additionally, indents of items define a hierarchy, items can be expanded/collapsed, working like in a tree view.
TSRVImagesScroll is similar to TSRVTabSet, but display not a set of tabs but a set of images, and scrolls them using a scroll bar.

In this update, TSRVThemeManager can apply skins to all these SRVControls. Skin is a set of images, colors, fonts and rules (schemes) for applying them to controls.
