MindFusion has released a new version of its scheduling library for Java Swing. Here is an overview of the new features:
You can apply the new Glass and Aero visual effects to all items. If you want to apply an effect, create an instance of one of the effect classes, set up its properties and add the instance to the AwtCalendar.ItemEffects collection. You can choose between two effect types – AeroEffect and GlassEffect. You can add, remove or modify effects at any time and this will reflect immediately on the appearance of the calendar. The Item Effects topic in the library’s documentation gives detailed explanation on how to create and apply visual effects.
Custom grouping lets you specify secondary resources individually for each primary resource. You an do this with the new customizeGrouping event. You can also apply grouping by the runtime type of the resources, not just the four predefined categories.
- We have fixed a bug where styled item texts did not appear.
- The getExactDateAt method works more consistently in various scenarios.
- New setViewport method.
