Prof-UIS is designed to help Visual C programmers save hundreds of hours in implementing today's most demanded GUI facilities in their applications. This makes Prof-UIS an invaluable tool for GUI development. It contains powerful set of tools for color management, color picker button; pop-up menu with shadows, animation, and menu bar with automatic support for lists of MRU files and so on.

General Features:

  • On-the-fly changeable Microsoft Office 2000, XP and 2003 themes
  • Visual Studio .NET-like resizable control bar, which optionally shows its contents while dragging/resizing. Such bars can be placed in all sorts of combinations relatively to each other both in the main frame window and in the smart floating containers
  • Powerful set of tools for color management: color popup menu with shadow (color picker menu), color picker button, color palette control, color picker control, and color selection dialog
  • Pop-up menu with shadows, animation, frequently/rarely used commands and Windows 2000-like tooltip window
  • Menu bar with automatic support for lists of MRU files and MDI windows, the system menu for the MDI/SDI main frame and MDI child frame, and the context menu for application's toolbars and resizable control bars
  • Enhanced resizable dialog, resizable property sheet and resizable property page
  • Fixed-size panel control bar
  • Enhanced standard controls with flat/semi-flat style: combo box with optional auto-complete, edit, button with icon, check box, and radio button
  • Built-in toolbar buttons with divided drop-down areas
  • Toolbar's chevron button support
  • Powerful "persistent affixment algorithm" which makes Prof-UIS control bars extremely user-friendly — they can restore their exact positions and sizes after redocking the bars or resizing the frame
  • Generalized template window classes for various common tasks like injecting non-client area borders into any window, providing flicker-free repainting and anchoring child windows to the borders of their parent window
  • Multi profile UI persistence and archive-based serialization of UI state, which supports the command usage statistics. These features are based on the Command Manager serializable component
  • Alpha icons for disabled menu and toolbar items used when both the Microsoft Office 2003 style and high/true color monitor modes are on
