SftOptions 1.0 - ActiveX Options Control
Registry/INI File Access
Published by Softel vdm, Inc. - 11/03/2009

 SftOptions is an easy to use control that can be added to your application in minutes to implement complete end-user customization of your application.

The product includes two controls.  One provides the complete, customizable user interface:

Sample Options Dialog

You define all available application options at design-time (or you can of course also add them at run-time).  SftOptions takes care of reading the INI file or Registry where settings are stored and displays them in the SftOptions user interface control.  The end-user can change all options using the intuitively simple check boxes and radio buttons the control provides. Finally, the control saves all settings, again in the INI file or Registry.

Options Control with ToolTip

If this sounds too simple, try our demo and look at how much, ahem, how little code you will have to write!

In addition, you'll receive a second control which is used to simplify INI file and Registry access.  Not that it's overly complicated to begin with, but with this control you can easily switch between INI file and the Windows Registry and you'll only need one line of code to retrieve an options setting:

applicationOption = SftOptsIO1.OptionValue("WantSplashScreen")

With very little effort, you can add that "professional touch" to your applications. End-user customization of your applications can easily be added to your applications with SftOptions!
