The MBS plug-in comprises a collection of several plug-in parts which extend the REALbasic development environment with 1,300 classes featuring over 29,000 documented functions.
This is a big update to our plugin collection. Featuring 36 new classes and over thousand new features, we can only list a few highlights here:
First we have a new example project coming with our ChartDirector plugin: Inside the ChartDirector Control project, you will find a canvas based ChartDirector control which implements adding charts to your application. With a few clicks you copy this class to your projects and add beautiful charts to your applications. All the difficulties in the mouse handling have been done for you so you can zoom and move in the chart.
Second, we have a new WIA Plugin part. This 20 new classes for Windows Image Acquisition let you browse for digital cameras. Once you have a device, you can import images or send commands to capture new images or delete images.
Third, we got a few customizable Cocoa controls: You can now customize a PDFView, a QTKitMovieView or a QTKitCaptureView. Draw into the display as you need to show custom widgets and get mouse events for them. Also we have a lot of new Cocoa related stuff like the Render function for the PDFPageMBS class to give you pictures for pages.
Also we got HID classes for Linux, a set of functions for a Machine ID, new picture functions and a lot of improvements on the existing stuff.
