Announcement: ActivePack Project is officially closed, so there will be no more updates or versions, I'll keep the site alive and let the source code available (see details on download page) please do not send any request about new features.
Update: October, 26 of 2001 - Version 1.03
Website: During this more than one year of no updates, I received several e-mails with critics, bugs and suggestions, and as I had no time to update the site, I had, either, no time to answer all of these emails, but at least, on 3th birthday of ActivePack I make avaliable here version 1.03 that was only sent to the registered users. I had problems with our free host (XOOM) that no longer have this service, so I've changed to a payed provider.

ActiveText: Several bug's corrected, created FloatFormat property, included the possibility of configure the [Custom Mask] to accept other types of characters than the numeric ones, allows on [Integer Mask] and [Float Mask] negative numbers, included the CActiveText class to treat globally the events of all ActiveText control on an application, changed the behavior of RawText property to format[Date Mask] and [Time Mask] masks without the separation chars.
ActiveDate: Several bug's corrected and enhanced some behaviors.
ActiveCombo: Broken the binary compatibility to make the control interface closer of VB ordinary ComboBox, renamed the file to ActiveCbo.ocx, included IconColorDepth property.
New OCX: More three ocx files were added to ActivePack, the ActiveLink with an Hyperlink control, the ActivePanel with two 3D controls and the ActiveScroll that creates automatic scrollbars on Forms.
