Uh uh - I just checked back and must discover that more than two months have passed since I announced that we would release WACK our "Window Application Control Kit" component "very soon". Okay somehow there was so much other work in between that we didn't have time to do make that finessing touches.
But finally we are able to announce WACK v1.0. You can download it here. So what is it? To make it short - it is a flash component that allows you create applications with multiple windows. It takes care for all that dragging, focussing, resizing, scrolling etc. that happens with these things. Of course you can adjust the looks and behaviors, too.
I have looked around and you can hit me if I'm wrong, but until now I haven't found another windows component that is as flexible as WACK. Of course there is FlashOS2 by Grant Skinner, but unfortunately that's not yet available for free...
We will extend it depending on your feedback and what we feel might be useful. So if you have any feedback, bug reports or wishes feel free to use our forum.Posted at January 29, 2003 10:10 PM | Further reading
