User Interface Extension Library for CorelSCRIPT
Note. A new version of the UI Extension Library is now available here.
CorelSCRIPT's user interface is quite limited. You can't use any custom dialog box controls, only those supported by CorelSCRIPT. I have created a Dynamic-Link Library (DLL) which allows to perform direct painting in Windows Bitmap files. These bitmaps could then be displayed in IMAGE control of a dialog which allows to create live previews of the effects before applying them to CorelDRAW or Photo-Paint document. I must say the execution speed is quite high so you can create previews "on-the-fly" as the user is typing effect parameters in the dialog controls.
This library is a great tool to add attractiveness and professional look to your hi-tech scripts and help users estimate the effect before applying it, so saving time and efforts.
The library consists of one DLL file - SCPRTL10.DLL, that exports a number of procedures and functions which can be used in the script. The functions can be divided in three main groups:
Here is an example of dialog created using The UI Extension Library:
