Echo2 Extras provides a collection of additional user interface components for the Echo2 framework. Echo2 Extras project is currently under development and should be considered beta-quality software.
Current components provided by the Extras library include:
· AccordionPane: A tabbed container that displays its contents between vertical separators with only one child component displayed at a time. The separators slide up and down with an animated effect when the user changes selection by clicking on a separator.
· BorderPane: A simple single-child container that displays its content surrounded by a graphically drawn FillImageBorder.
· CalendarSelect: A date selection component which provides a view of an entire calendar month to aid in selection.
· ColorSelect: An Hue-Saturation-Value based color selection component.
· PulldownMenu: A pull-down menu component with the capability to display submenus and toggle/radio items.
· TabPane: A traditional tabbed pane implementation. This component can lazy-render its children to reduce initial load times.
What's New in This Release:
· Opacity-based fades were added to TransitionPane.
· The Calendar component has been localized for English, German, French, Greek, Italian, Spanish, and 1337.
· IE6 BorderPane rendering issues were fixed, including enabling transparent borders with this browser.
