Latest Product News

Great news: 64-bit iGrid ActiveX with improvements available
Today we have very good news for all iGrid ActiveX users: we have released the long-awaited 64-bit version of our ActiveX control. This was made possible by twinBASIC, a new development environment providing backward compatibility with existing VB6/VBA projects and offering significant improvements over the VB6 IDE. A year of hard work is behind us, and now we can provide a new modern edition of our grid control for real 64-bit development in such environments as Microsoft Office and twinBASIC.
The modern edition of the control also provides an improvement in appearance. The traditional 3D border of the control is now automatically drawn using the OS visual styles if they are available in the application, creating a sleek and harmonious look in the modern versions of Windows:

This release also fixes all bugs revealed by customers. All changes are documented in the comprehensive What's New document.
The help system for the product was updated. It describes all the new features and was supplemented with new topics and code samples explaining existing members of iGrid.NET.
10Tec Help Viewer 2.2 with search and other enhancements
This update of our help viewer for MSHC files brings several great improvements, including the full-text search feature.

You can adjust the search functionality with new settings in the application configuration file. For example, you can specify your own colors to highlight search phrase occurrences and specify topic HTML elements to ignore during search (such as service menus).
Other two important enhancements are mouse gestures allowing you to scroll topics quickly to top or bottom and support for cursor movement keys in the table of contents so that this tree works like standard tree-view controls. More info is in the comprehensive What's New:
