Release Notes

This release is of the individual modules that make up the object model. These modules are what are found in the downloadable Access demo project. Note that a "core" setup requires all files but the following:
  • cControl_EventHandler_{name} classes (except cControl_EventHandler_Form)
  • cControl_Binder classes and support modules
  • cControl_WebButton classes and support modules
  • TEMPLATE classes (recommended)
  • Startup.bas (recommended)

Note that the object model presently requires the managing classes, cCompositeControls and cCompositeControlManager and their support modules.

The code is not cleaned up and the commenting probably carries a few outdated references, so it's best to consult the online documentation when examining the code.

The VBA code is specific to MS Access, though should be generic to the version. That has not been tested, however.

Porting the code to other Office or 3rd party applications should be a relatively simple matter. All Access-specific objects are declared using Access.[typename] (i.e. Access.Form, Access.Combobox, etc.)
