Miscellaneous Treats in List & Label 26

As with every version, we have included a number of minor bells and whistles into the latest version. The most notable ones are:

1. PDF in Viewer Control

The viewer control can now display PDF files as well, albeit with a limited feature set (no form controls, designed for rather simple PDFs).

2. GetVar Supports AutoComplete 

GetVar now supports AutoComplete, i.e. any variables added via SetVar will be made available in a dropdown, preventing typos.

3. Dynamic Print Options Dialog

The print options dialog got an overhaul, making it much easier to use. All unnecessary parts are dynamically removed, leaving a clean and uncluttered UI e.g. when exporting. This makes it much easier for the end user to navigate and understand the dialog.

This is the dialog in LL25:

Now compare this to the new dialog in LL26:

4. Improved Ribbon UI

The Ribbon UI now sports Office 2019 inspired icons. For compatibility, the "old" images are still available in a separate resource file. This lets your app look up-to-date.
