Here you will find some screenshots taken from our Demo applications. Note that the JPEG compression, used to keep the size of these screenshots as small as possible, could cause some distortion over the screenshots. In the real world these buttons will look far better than here.

The new Vista's Aero style will certainly enhance your user interface: each single color composing the Aero look can be changed through dedicated properties:
Creating ribbon bars with Vista or Office styles and using the new Split Buttons is just a matter of few clicks
Some of the styles available for the button. It can be used as an alternative to standard Frames controls and standard Picture controls (with the capability of displaying GIF and AVI animations). A great new style is the enhancement of the standard Option (Radio) buttons and Checkboxes with transparency support.
Pictures and animations can be displayed in transparency over the button surface and their reflectivity can be enabled and configured as seen on the set of buttons below: the 2 upper buttons have picture reflectivity enabled, the 2 lower buttons have picture reflectivity disabled.
The control can be used as a background for other standard controls like edit boxes, lisboxes and comboboxes; as you can see the final effect is really outstanding
Creating 3D Progress Bars is also a very easy task; apart from the standard horizontal and vertical look, you can now create progress bars with a radial look:
A few screenshots, taken from our application 3D Button Visual Editor (developed using 3D Active Button Magic as a " button engine") displaying some available and ready to use button templates. The only limit on creating these buttons is your fantasy.

A couple of screenshots of the Active DJ Studio demo programs. Note that every button or frame you see is made using our control.
A screenshot of the 1998 European Community members. Every country is rendered using a custom shaped button and every country has its own mouse pointer. The country under the mouse pointer changes its color. This dialog box, contained in the demo program, performs sounds when the mouse enters, leaves or clicks a country.
Some of the special effects that can be applied over rectangular, rounded-rectangular and elliptical buttons. The caption text can have special effects applied (the surface rendering quality in this image is worse than in reality due to the image compression).
