SFBitmapView SFX for PalmOS
Sample Application
Sample Application

Version 1.0 Released April 17, 2001

SFBitmapView is a custom SFX control that provides colour and greyscale bitmap display capabilities for your SatForms applications! Because it is a custom control, it integrates directly into your forms like other native controls. You can configure the control to select which image to display from a table datasource, an edit control, or directly via a script command.

Numerous script methods are also provided to give you complete runtime management of the control, including:

  • change the control size at runtime
  • change the control position on the form at runtime
  • change the control visibility at runtime
  • change the image being displayed at runtime
  • change the image frame type at runtime
  • scroll the image inside the control at runtime
In fact, using the script methods provided with the control, you can even achieve decent animation. The SFBitmapView control also provides optional OnClick scripting support.

SFBitmapView supports SatForms 3.0 and higher, and PalmOS 3.0 and higher. Yes, you can add colour bitmap support to your SatForms 3.x application!

SFBitmapView includes a licensed copy of PalmRI, a simple to use program to import images into the format that SFBitmapView uses (standard PalmOS Bitmap resource format). A full featured sample application and sample collection of bitmaps is included, to test the extension features and help you learn by example to make the best use of it.
