FreeTextBox4 and IE7 Mention

June 30, 2006 | Uncategorized | 9 Comments

Here is a screenshot of the forthcoming FreeTextBox4. We’ll have a preview release next week.

You’ll notice a new look and several new features on this shot. More details next week.

Also thanks to the IE team for mentioning FreeTextBox as a nice example “DHTML Editor” in their post right before the IE7 Beta 3 release news.

    Hi John,

    FreeTextBox4 looks realy cool! Are you going to offer programming support for creating new panels, as for toolbars?

    A feature that it was missing from the previous version: There was no way from the programming model, to know, if the control was the free version, or the pro one, in order to programmaticaly use the extra features.

    A other cool feature, would be to preview the fonts, with the real fonts, and the fonts’ sizes, with the real sizes; not to use the html controls to display lists but to create dhtml panels in order to do that.

    Looking forward to the first beta of FreetextBox4, George J.

    Yes, the entire programming of toolbars will be in JavaScript and some equivalent in ASP.NET.

    That’s a good idea regarding determining free vs. pro. I hadn’t thought of it before, but I’ll look into it.

    And yes, the new dropdowns are "rich" in that they show the real formatting.

Hi, I'm John Dyer. In my day job, I build websites and create online seminary software for a seminary in Dallas. I also like to release open source tools including a pretty popular HTML5 video player and build tools that help people find best bible commentaries and do bible study. And just for fun, I also wrote a book on the theology of technology and media.
