Separate Product

We are also excited to announce that TMS FNC Core will be available as a separate product. As already mentioned in the intro, TMS FNC Core has received a major update with 2 new components, but has already been the heart and soul for all FNC products for a long time. It includes a lot more "hidden" functionality that can be used separately from any other FNC product. Below is a list of some of the most important features.

  • JSON reading, writing and parsing functionality
  • Base64 and URL encoding and decoding
  • Component persistence
  • Undo/Redo Manager
  • Verification of numeric, alphanumeric character sets
  • Message, file open and save dialogs
  • Easy access to application and documents folder
  • Open files and URLs
  • Bitmap container for storing JPEG, PNG, ICO, GIF and many more image formats with optional automatic URL downloading mechanism

Coming Up!

Making TMS FNC Core available as a separate product doesn't change anything for your current subscription, we only want to make this available as we are planning partnership opportunities, with you as a customer, in the future. Developing your own controls, libraries based on TMS FNC Core will allow you to write the code once and target multiple frameworks/operating systems. Stay tuned for more news coming up in the near future!
