Outlook 2003 Style ShortcutBar ActiveX Control
Outlook 2003 Shortcut Bar Control for VB ·
ShortcutBar is an ActiveX control that provides a Microsoft
Outlook 2003 style navigation side bar for your applications.
With ShortcutBar, you can present categorized information and
application shortcuts to your users in a stylish and intuitive
A ShortcutBar is divided into three visual areas. There is a
selection of bars that the user can choose from to select a category
or function. Each
bar has a corresponding panel, which can contain
any other control, such as a listview or a treeview. If there isn't
enough room to display all the bars at once, the extra bars will be
placed on the toolbar at the bottom. This space-saving design allows
you to present large amounts of information in a very compact space.
ShortcutBar can automatically detect the user's color scheme and
display the appropriate themed appearance, or you can specify custom
colors and background pictures. A built-in ImageList supports
32-bit alpha channel icons on all Windows platforms, allowing
you to display anti-aliased icons with shadows.
Unicode support is provided for displaying international characters.
As an added bonus, we are also including the
OutlookContainer control. This is an Office 2003 Style frame
control that mimics that mini-container in Outlook 2003. You can use
this control to provide sub-headings within ShortcutBar for
different sets of information.
You might expect that a control with so many features would require
adding a huge binary to your application. ShortcutBar is only 140kb!
