ProGUI V1.23 Professional User Interface Wrapper (Office 2007 styles + more)


Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,

My name is Chris and I'm the developer of ProGUI (Professional Graphical User Interface Library) and I'm also new to the forums :)

I've had quite a few of my registered PureBasic users request an AutoIt wrapper now (and used AutoIt myself in the build script of ProGUI) so I've finally managed to write one!

You can find a link to the wrapper below. I've not had chance to properly test it yet so any feedback welcome but I'll be converting the PureBasic examples soon ;)

V1.23 : This release includes a new skinnable SplitterEx control with 3 default system skins including Office 2007 style, new gradient types with multiple colour blends and various other improvements and bug-fixes. Oh and don't forget to register on the new ProGUI forums if you havn't already ;)http://www.progui.co.uk/phpBB/index.php

Please note ProGUI is licenseware and will timeout at around 5 minutes per session so that you can trial out ProGUI with your applications. A license for the standard version is only $30 (USD) however! There is also a ProGUI Gold license which is slightly more expensive but Includes full source code of ProGUI and a license to use it in your own projects: $45 (USD)

Thank you MrCreatoR :) yes sorry examples for AutoIt are in the works. I'm actually writing a little tool that will convert the source for the examples from PB to AutoIt automatically so that any new examples or updates I create will be mirrored in the other languages ;) Please take a look at the docs though, the API is very simple ;)http://www.progui.co.uk/help.html
