Recommended Posts

JKI Flat UI Controls 2.0.1 is now available with New Controls and Various Improvements (functional, cosmetic, and search)...

This builds on the 2.0 release and all users are encouraged to upgrade.

Release Notes

New Controls
- Text Only Button (“Blank” Button with no Icon -- just text)
- File Open Button (120x40 button with File Icon and "Open" text)
- File Path Control with folder icon for browse button (in addition to one with a plus “+” icon)
- Borderless Cluster (with very small border/edge, which is nice for making arrays of items where extra visual space between elements is not desired)
- System Cluster (uses a system recessed frame as cluster border)
- System Array (uses a system recessed frame as the array border and a system numeric as the index display)
- VISA Resource (looks similar to the existing Flat UI Controls 2.0 Combo Box)

Functional Improvements
- Mechanical actions of all buttons set to “Latch When Released” (since it tends to be the most commonly used)
- String control is now resizable (Removed extra string controls)
- Numeric control is now resizable (removed extra string controls)

Cosmetic Improvements
- Fixed text size and font of combo box control’s display and drop-down list
- Improved drop shadows of buttons (it’s a little sharper looking now)
- Set all label colors to be consistent across the theme (122,122,127)
- Fixed inconsistencies in font size in various controls

Search Improvements
- Added some some tags to controls for improved search-ability
- Added “Flat” tag to all Flat UI Controls
- Added “button” tag to all buttons
- Fixed typo on “Transparent Boolean” control
