Has anyone used ExpressBars Suite? Ribbon Controls for BCB
« on: September 22, 2007, 10:12:01 PM »
Look:

http://www.component...pressbars/index.html

and then, this could be the same company, I am not sure

http://www.devexpres...CL/ExBars/Ribbon.xml

I'd like to buy it and use it for SkyIDE but it is pretty expensive about $150 :o

if I make SkyIDE look like this, along with all the bug fixes and features, it will be a very good release.

Does anyone have any opinions?

i don't really know much about express bars, but devexpress makes some really good stuff.  i have used their grid before -- very high quality.

Hmmm, thanks for that, I am just trying to figure out if those two web sites are the same company. I was originally looking for docking controls.

componentsource is just a storefront for various programming tools.

devexpress are the makers of the component.

I think I am gonna go ahead with this. I will buy it, I like it and I will revamp the look and feel of the IDE with docking windows, control, menus and toolbars.
