Released: Excentrics World Server Controls v2.0.2

September 14, 2006 15:58 by matthaw

I’m proud to announce that Excentrics World Server Controls has released v2.0.2. This has been a work in progress for about a month now with the biggest issue finally resolved, full Microsoft “Atlas” compatibility support! The full change-list is as follows:

  • Full compatibility with Microsoft “Atlas” for all controls.
  • Added ability to enable/disable the CalendarPopup and TimePicker controls via Client-side Javascript API.
  • Fixed validator controls not working with non en-US cultures.
  • Fixed the display of the visible year for non-Gregorian calendars for the CalendarPopup.
  • Fixed issue where setting PopupLocation=Left on the CalendarPopup and TimePicker never actually displayed the popups on the left.
  • Fixed the issue where the CollapsablePanel was not retaining the expanded/collapsed state upon postback.
  • Fixed the NumericBox not posting back when AutoPostBack=True
  • Fixed issue where AutoFillFormat was not applying the mask when reaching a non-alpha/numeric character.
  • Fixed tabbing into the MaskedTextBox by handling it more gracefully now when typing characters.
  • Fixed issue where the multi-text drop down list and list box controls were not binding correctly against the selected value when contained in a DetailsView / FormView.

Along with the v2.0.2 release, there has been a price drop in licensing the source code. The cost is now $75 USD instead of $100 USD. Lastly, some website enhancements have been made, most notably the integration with my weblog displaying the latest 5 entries relating to website news.

The updated version can be downloaded by visiting http://www.eworldui.net/Download.aspx. The official build number for this release is 2.0.2.2264.

Hi Matt,

Thanks for the eWorld.UI server controls. It is really useful. I used the numericbox and the calendarpopup controls in a project I'm developing - a travel agent front-desk system.

I encountered problems when I tried to access the calendarpopup control in the gridview edit template.

Firstly, the calendarpopup does not seem to support two-way binding when I tried to do a update. So to go round it I defined a server function to handle the update (OnCommand). However, when the following statement was executed:

Dim ctlDate As eWorld.UI.CalendarPopup = gvwFlightDetails.SelectedRow.FindControl("calEdtFlightDate")

the error "Object reference not set to an instance of an object." was returned.

Please help.

Best regards,
David Sau
