Another maintenance release containing fixes for the Krypton Toolkit and Krypton Ribbon.

The biggest change is the inclusion of help for Visual Studio 2010 SP1. Note that you do need the SP1 for Visual Studio 2010 in order to see the help. If you have not already installed it then you should do so before upgrading Krypton.

Font measuring has been fixed for the Input/Message/Task dialog boxes. The Validating and Validated events are now fired for the input controls. There are four new label styles that speed up development as well as numerous crash fixes. Check out the Toolkit and Ribbon change list documents using the links below to see a full list of changes.

Toolkit Change List
Ribbon Change List

Our latest release includes three new components for the Toolkit. All of these are modal dialogs that are intended to replace your use of the existing message box, task dialog and input box forms. So now your dialogs can be consistent with the rest of the application by also using the Krypton palette styling.

The switch to using the KryptonMessageBox is very easy because you only need to perform a Find/Replace of the phrase MessageBox.Show with KryptonMessageBox.Show. This is because the exact same static Show methods have been used in the Krypton implementation as exist for the MessageBox which ensures an easy upgrade path. Check out the three new samples that can be accessed from the KryptonExplorer in order to see them working and experiment with the different settings that are possible.

Also present in this release is an important bug fix. Under Windows 7 the showing of a dialog that is derived from KryptonForm can fail. The bug is very nasty in that the dialog simply fails to be drawn on the screen, which is likely to be very confusing for your users. This has now been fixed. For a full list of changes you should check out the change lists that are installed.

This new release is smaller than usual but does contain a new Toolkit control called the KryptonTrackBar. It acts like the standard windows version allowing the user to drag a position indicator along a track. It also has the ability to draw the track as a triangle and so giving the appearance of a volume control. Always provided are a number of bug fixes and more minor additions.

As the last addition for the new KryptonTrackBar it has now been made available as a group element inside the KryptonRibbon tabs. By default it does not draw the background as you will most likely want the ribbon background to show through. It works in vertical or horizontal orientation and by modifying the TrackBarSize between Small, Medium and Large options you can get the appearance to look appropriate for your ribbon group.

The latest maintenance release of the Krypton Suite is now available for download.
