The CCRP UpDown Control from
Jeremy Adams provides a direct replacement for the MS-provided version supporting
additional features available on systems with comctl32.dll for IE3 or greater.
New in this Release
- Fixed a bug in the refresh method
Fixed in release 1.02.008
- Problems relating to the Change event not firing when the
control was not buddied were fixed.
- Errors are no longer raised from the
Fixed in release 1.01.006
- The Change event was renamed to Changing and is to be used
to modify the Pos/Delta
parameters before they take effect. The Change event now passes the Pos once the
change has taken effect.
Fixed in release 1.00.005
- Several bugs in the acceleration class were fixed.
- The HotTrack property is now visible. Hot Tracking is only
supported on NT5\Win2000 or Win98 and above.
Features of the CCRP UpDown Control
- Support for acceleration profiles when the user holds down
the mouse button on the up or down buttons. For example, pressing a UpDown button changes
the buddy value by one -- with continued pressing the value changes to the incremental
values specified in the acceleration profile, (ie two seconds increments by 5, five
seconds increments by 20). These intervals can be redefined by the developer.
- Support for buddying to any control that responds to the
WM_SETTEXT message (See Buddying Readme.txt / below for more information).
- AllowArrowKeys property for allowing or disallowing the
value to be changed when the user uses the arrow keys in the buddy control.
- Support for using the MouseWheel within the buddy control to
increment/decrement the value.
- Base property to set whether the control uses decimal or
- BuddyAlignment property to set whether the up down control
is displayed to the left or right of the buddy control.
- Min, Max and Pos properties to set the range and position
for the control.
- Orientation property to set whether the arrows are drawn up
and down or left and right.
- SyncBuddy property to allow/disallow updating the contents
of the buddy control.
- ThousandsSeparator property to set whether or not values
displayed in the buddy control include thousands separators.
- Unicode property to set whether or not he control uses
- Wrap property to set whether or not the control wraps around
when the minimum or maximum value is reached.
Using Buddying with the CCRP UpDown Control
Buddying is one of the most important aspects of the
control. You can either respond directly to the UpClick and DownClick events to respond to
the user clicking on the buttons or you can take advantage of the automatic buddying
available in the control.
The control acts as a control container - within the VB IDE you can drag a control onto
the Up Down control. The control will then buddy with the first contained control (it will
ignore any other controls that you place in the container after the first one) - the buddy
control will be automatically resized to fit the size of the container minus the size of
the Up Down control.
The advantage of using this form of automatic buddying is that the AllowArrowKeys property
can be used to set whether or not the up and down arrow keys sent to the buddy control are
captured and interpreted by the Up Down control and the same with mouse
This form of buddying will work with any control that has a hWnd and responds to the
WM_SETTEXT message to set the displayed text within the control. Most commonly, the Up
Down control will be buddied with a textbox.
Once the buddy control has been dropped onto the Up Down
control, the buddy control will be resized to fit the Up Down control. After that point,
you can resize the buddy control by simply selecting it in the normal way within the IDE
and then resizing it. The Up Down control will detect the resizing and then adjust the
size of the Up Down control to fit the remaining space.
