Value is more important than ever and competitive advantage is critical in our current business climate. The combination of Value and Competitive Advantage can be found in Studio Controls for COM offering both for Windows developers and for the end-users of the software we build.  Value also includes being able to provide an outstanding developer experience, which is a tenant of good business and a point of pride for DBI. The release of Studio Controls for COM offers Windows developers a new level of service and a renewed developer experience.


In Studio Controls for COM DBI has distilled its three award winning ActiveX component products; Calendar Tools, Component Toolbox and Solutions PIM Professional, into one easy to manage, intuitive COM-based product that offers sixty of the leading Windows developer software components for creating outstanding first impression user interfaces. Studio Controls for COM incorporates new Windows Vista styles among other individual component enhancements including accommodation for Microsoft Access s new licensing scheme giving Office Professional developers another set of tools for custom scheduling and interface design solutions.


DBI debuts a new component in Studio Controls for COM expanding on Microsoft s initial appointment scheduling interface found in Outlook. Look for ctDayView to give your COM based applications enhanced mutli-column scheduling capabilities - Schedule appointments for one entity for up to 35 days in a single view or one day s appointments for up to 35 unique entities in a single view. New styles and presentation features offer developers just the right mix of functionality and freedom to create outstanding user interfaces.
