Well, I'm proud to announce, that I'm finishing migration of almost 350.000 lines application (190 forms!) from TMS Smooth Suite to Berg's NextSuite. It was really wise choice, because:

1) the application's UI is now really FAST! Switching between tabs and displaying visual components is true on-line ! :)
2) NextGrid is really speed killer! :D Application is 3 layer so it is loading everything directly to the grid (do DB at all). Boki's components are faster from 2 to 10 times than TMS's StringGrid, huh!
3) The application is now 30% smaller, which is quite important when downloading from network/cloud
4) The customer said that now (with NexSuite) the application looks as "elegant, professional business application, not a italo-disco one" ;)

Boki - thank you very much! Purchasing your components was the best money spend ever by me! B)

Thank you very much Cezar :)

I hope that upcoming v6 of Next Suite will be a good shot too!

I hope so Boki! :)

By the way - while migrating I've found that there is a lot of properties in Next's components I've never noticed they exists! I've found them only because they implemented functionality which was in ported app. It looks like a small, few-pages "BergSoft VCL Feature guide" will be a really nice idea ;)

I await version 6, I hope will come soon.
Do you think the new version will be compatible with current version?

Hi,

Most of properties from Column and NextGrid (NextInspector) will be the same. I have move some properties from Options property such as MultiSelect and SelectFullRow. Every component include 6 suffix at the end, so user will be able to use both v5 and v6. I will also provide converter.

Biggest change for NextGrid is that it will include Views (Report and Slides) as separated object. With 2 clicks user will be able to add View, configure it and then use Cells and Columns as before in v5. I hope that this is not too big change. It already made code maintaining easier.

Best regards

Smells like something wonderfull :)

By the way - direct export to XLS (without Excel and COM/OLE) will be very important functionality, even as paid add-on to Next Suite!

Hi,

I know how to export to XLS, with only basic formatting. I didn't read much about XLSX format, but maybe it is a XML format which can be understanded more easily. XLS format is some kind of secret :)

I will try to add it. Mostly, I am concerning how to separate Xe2 version from other version which are not supporting styles.

I am developing a style TComponent which will be shared between components and I will add one more additional style which will be actually Xe2 style. I am not sure yet how this will work, but this is my idea.

I will try to support upcoming Win8 styles too. I know that for business applications this style is not very relevant, but maybe users will like.

Hi

Really don't know. NextInspector 6 is in really good shape now. I think that it less flicker, it is faster and it have some nice new features. NextGrid 6 is still in non-visual development but I think that I will made it easy since I have worked on NextGrid.Net recently. I will also copy all good things from NextGrid v5 - to avoid coding solid parts again without needs.

Next Collection is also in non-visual development and it will basically contain same components but improved. Some components will maybe be the same.

I am developing a NxXMLDocument component which will be used internally for Saving/Loading routines. It is almost finished, but it may be slow for trees with many sub-nodes. I am trying to solve this since TList is a little bit slow.

NextSheet will be basically the same, but I will create some classes from interfaces. Standard developer will not see many differences.

Again, I am having most problems with Editor components :( , especially drop-down ones.
