List & Label 13
combit has rolled out version 13 of its List & Label development component. New features include new licensing models and support concepts. Two subscription versions of the product, Professional and Enterprise, will be available, in addition to the Standard Edition. The new version provides new property lists, new chart types, exploded views of pie charts, and a completely new rendering engine. The List & Label object model (DOM) facilitates free access to almost every object property, it enables dynamic project creation or it can be used to program your own pared-down Designer. The export module is now available as a pure Unicode version whereby Unicode texts can be safely transferred into the required formats.

Additional highlights include support for the QR barcode format, which distinguishes itself by its generous error tolerance at a high density of data and fast-scanning capacity. A new feature when purchasing the Standard Edition is that the Designer can now be passed on to be utilized by the end user. The all-inclusive Professional and Enterprise

Editions include support, subscriptions, new versions, and more.

Xceed Docking Windows for .NET
Xceed has released version 2.0 of Xceed Docking Windows for .NET. Version 2.0 of Xceed's docking windows control for the .NET platform features the addition of support for tabbed multiple document interface (MDI). Docked window tabs can be dragged and dropped. Right-clicking on a tab brings up all the expected options (float, dock, autohide, and hide). Control-tab support displays a pop-up window with the list of control-tab destinations. This version also adds the exact look and behavior (tabs and dock-cues) of the Visual Studio 2005 docking-windows interface.

Xceed Docking Windows for .NET provides a functionally faithful recreation of the dockable windows seen in the user interface of Microsoft Visual Studio. With this control, developers can create applications that manage windows with little effort--docking them, floating them, and tab-grouping them. The flexible ToolWindows can contain any .NET control and any number of window groups can be created.

A fully functional free trial version of this 100 percent managed component designed to work on version 2.0 of the .NET Framework with Visual Studio 2005 is now available for download from Xceed's Web site at
