Tips

Speeding up adding entries to a TAdvSmoothListBox


Just like with many other components, adding a lot of items programmatically to the TAdvSmoothListBox can be significantly accelerated by using a BeginUpdate/EndUpdate pair.

Example:

var
  i: integer;
begin  
   AdvSmoothListBox1.Items.BeginUpdate;  
   for i := 0 to 1000  do  
   begin  
     AdvSmoothListBox1.Items.Add.Caption := 'item '+ inttostr(i);  
   end;  
   AdvSmoothListBox1.Items.EndUpdate;
end;  


Choosing different bullet types in lists for HTML enabled components


Now you can specify different bullet types : square, circle or image for bullets in <ul> lists.

Example:

<ul>
<li type="square" color="clGray">First item 
<li type="square" color="clGray">Second item 
</ul>

This will show gray square bullets instead of the standard small round bullets and thus allow you to create lists in HTML formatted text with a more modern appearance.

As always, we thank all users for the numerous inputs, feedback, comments and suggestions. This is an invaluable help to steer our developments here at TMS software. We continue to look forward to all your further communications to direct our team to provide you better tools and components for your needs.

Kind regards,
TMS software team
