We are happy to announce the release of Prof-UIS 2.26 Freeware.
The new version introduces Visual Studio 2005-like (aka "Whidbey") user interface including the new look and feel and docking markers.
The library and samples are ready to be used with Visual Studio 2005. Full source code is available. You can download it at www.prof-uis.com
There's no problem with the licensing of Prof-UIS:
If you wish to use the freeware version which is available from CodeGuru, Fossware.com and a number of other sites (just do a search on Google!) then do so. The freeware version comes with source code and can be used for free, thus satisfying CodeGuru's criteria.
All that Sergiy Lavrynenko is asking is that if you utilise the code in a COMMERCIAL application i.e. you intend to make money from it, then you purchase either a license to use this library or one of the more capable commercial versions.
I have myself so far used Prof-UIS in one non-commercial application successfully (although the documentation is woeful: try the forum on Fossware.com for help) and fully intend to use it commercially.
This is fair and reasonable: if you (or, to be more accurate in my case, the company you work for) wish to make money using Sergiy's library then pay up for the license. Sergiy has had the decency (or marketing guile - take your pick) to allow a capable library to be used for free if you don't intend to make money from it.
The new version of Prof-UIS incorporates Microsoft Office(R) 2003 theme support, streamlined menus and control bars, Visual Studio .NET 2003 compatibility, multi-monitor support and a number of bug fixes. Full source code is available. You can download it at http://www.prof-uis.com.
Could it be that there is a small bug in the toolbar position ?
I move the toolbar (MDIDOCVIEW sample) to the left side of the frame so that the grippers (menu and toolbar) are aligned. Then I leave the program and restart it. The grippers aren't aligned anymore and the toolbar has moved some pixels to the right.
