Not sure where to post comments suggestions - is this the right place to reach you?

Firstly - ThemedControls is seriously COOL!

I have used in one application and I am now looking to introduce it into another. To do so there are a couple of features I need to add. Just wanted to check if you are a) already working on them or b) if you are interested, is there is a way in which I can feed them back to you for introduction into released version?

What I need to achieve is:

1. Simple method to hide/show individual panes (I have some panes which only show adter data has been changed).
2. Hot keys for each pane.

Hi Gary!
Here is the best place to talk about ThemedControls.
Firstly, I would like to know if you're talking about OutlookNavBar.

Sorry for not being clear. Yes I am talking about the OutlookNavBar.

Hi Gary!

1) Not working on it, but I'll add to ThemedOutlookNavBar "wish list".
    For now, you can add/remove buttons (panes) just changing the PageCount property Panes control programmatically at run time and add your controls dinamically.

2) Not working on it, but it is already in ThemedOutlookNavBar "wish list".

Another small request for your "wish list" :-)

in outlook navbar, allow .BeforeChangeSelectedButton() to return .F. to prevent SelectedButton being changed.

This allows validation of entries before navigation.

Hi Gary.
This suggestion don't go to the "wish list".   : (
I've already made the change and it will be available in the 3.5.0 version.   : )))

Hi Gary!
ThemedControls 3.5.0 version is available to download.
This version contains two features that you requested:
1- BeforeChangeSelectedButton method can now return .T. or .F. to prevent SelectedButton changes;
2- Buttons now support HotKeys in caption (take a look at the new HotKey property from Pane control). Just set this property the same way that you set Caption, Picture16 and Picture24 properties.
