Over time, we have developed a lot of components as part of our product development activities
and custom software projects. Gauging the usefulness of these components we decided to bundle them
together and market them as a product. ControlHive contains custom controls for ASP.NET. These
controls can also be included as components into PT Covalence
if required. Controls
requiring associated entities will automatically be included in the respective schema.
Here are some of the components that come bundled in the ControlHive package.
This is a 4 view calendar with Day, Week, Month and Agenda
screens. The control runs on AJAX and can be customised to include additional screens. The control
comes with a various entities which can also be used to manage any temporal information in the
A datagrid view with an integrated paging mechanism ideal for handling
large amounts of data.
PT Image Manager:
Managing a large number of photos can be problamatic
in CMSs. This controls makes it easy to manage all the photos or the set can be filtered based
on a number of criterion.
PT Image Gallery:
A custom javascipt gallery showing images on mouse
The PT Menu has a number of states and options. It comes with entities for
defining pages and controls as objects besides a sitemap entity. If this control is added to an
application which has the security module, it integrates into that to provide security trimming
i.e. hiding the pages which the user does not have access to. Menu icons can also be added to
the items and these are uploaded via the SiteObject Control. It also automatically adds side
arrows if the menu width exceeds its designated width. The menu can also be split into 2 menus
if a module/sub module configuration is required in CRMs. These menus communicate with each
other in a parent-child configuration. The menu also works on a single page control
architecture where it fires AJAX postbacks instead of redirecting pages.
Currently, the controls are not sold seperately.
