NumberInput ActiveX 2.0 Improves the input of integer values within certain limits, that can be determined by the programmer. For the input buttons can be used in addition to a direct input from keyboard.
Subclassing ActiveX 1.0 Enables the subclassing of window forms, that means the interception and execution of their messages. The system administered messages can be supplemented or substituted.
Description: Permits the display of instant help texts in each place of a window. The texts appear at the position indicated, when the mouse stays unmoved in the near of the place. The function corresponds to the Tool Tip Texts of the Windows control elements; the texts displayed by InstantHelp however are not bound to dialogue or window elements and their positions.
In this way it is possible to explain a picture for example. The specific strength of InstantHelp is, that the texts in the form of an array can be changed dynamically without changing any attributes of other objects.
