Are you planning to implement Office 2007 look in the menu/toolbar components? I am not asking for the complete Ribbon functionality, but I just installed new Office 2007 beta2 and it looks awesome. It would be great if my applications could look that great, so I felt he need to ask here about your plans... :)

Thanks,

Damir

Hi Damir,

We'll jump back on UIStudio features after our new version of SyntaxEditor is complete.

We are currently trying to finish up some things for SyntaxEditor but do plan on adding some Office 2007 themes after that.

Yes, we're hoping to get it in the next maintenance release. We've started on it and need to add some other colors to the theme to handle some more complex gradients.

In addition to this we have already implemented color tinting so you can take a base theme, and apply a tint color to it. Therefore with one line of code you can make a great looking purple, red, or any other color theme. We recently used the same concept in our Ribbon control, of which you can see a screenshot at the bottom of this page:

And third, we've added setters to all color properties on the color scheme class so you can tweak values however you like.

All this should be in the next maintenance release. We've very excited about it!

Wow, that sounds great. Any idea when we can expect this release? I'm already looking forward to several things contained within it :)

Hopefully this week. It involves Shared/WinUICore updates so we have to make sure the other products like some SyntaxEditor changes are complete before it's ready. UIStudio itself is more or less good to go though.
