Excel Software Rolls Out RbApp 1.0 for REALbasic Developers

4/25/2005 - Excel Software is pleased to introduce RbApp 1.0, a platform-neutral collection of reusable REALbasic classes that help programmers create industrial strength applications on Macintosh and Windows. RbApp supplements the classes and controls in REALbasic 5.0 or later from REAL Software, Inc.

The main components of RbApp are:

RbEdit is a plain text editor that supports tens of megabytes of text and can read and write large files in seconds on Mac OS X versus minutes with REALbasic's EditField control. RbEdit provides Undo/Redo, Find/Replace and Print commands, configurable tab support, runtime programmable line wrap/no wrap, drag & drop and a configurable text font, size, color and style. It offers interface similarity with EditField plus added programming control over text editing.

RbView implements a powerful drawing environment that supplements REALbasic's graphic capabilities. It allows a programmer to work at a higher level of abstraction by providing an extendable framework of properties and methods for drawing objects with specified pen color, fill color, dashed lines, etc. Programmers can easily manage page size, orientation, number of horizontal and vertical pages, scaling, printing and scrolling of views.

RbCommand offers a reusable, Undo/Redo command structure for applications. It allows an application to track the mouse, provide feedback to the user and constrain the tracking process while performing the command.

RbPalette makes it easy to add horizontal toolbars or vertical tool palettes to REALbasic applications running on any platform. Tool palettes include active and inactive tool icons, programmable enabled and visible states of each tool and contextual online help.

RbApp is $195 for a single developer with a free trial download. It comes with sample projects, a printed and PDF manual, royalty-free distribution rights for compiled applications and both Mac OS X and Windows installers.
