3D Button API is the ultimate 3D button Software Development Kit (SDK) developed by MultiMedia Soft; derived from the experience with our ActiveX control 3D Active Button Magic , it replaces the old fashioned Windows flat-square button in your already existing applications and in your new developments. This is also the 3D button alternative for developers that prefer the use of DLL components instead of ActiveX controls.
Whether you are developing a simple Windows application, a kiosk application or a touch screen application for the POS market, 3D Button API will enhance your user interface with an outstanding look and will give you speed your applications time-to-market.
With the latest version of the SDK, you can now create outstanding 3D buttons having several modern rendering surfaces like Aqua, Gel, Vista's "Aero", Office 2003, Office 2007 and many others: just see below some small surface sample:
Your application has already been developed? No problem! With a few easy steps you will be able to change the "look & feel" of your buttons without changing the existing "business logic" code. You will only need to add some call to the 3D Button API functions in order to change the buttons' look.
Stop wasting time designing your bitmapped buttons on your own and start using 3D Button API . Changing a user interface, designed with this fancy 3D button SDK, will be a matter of minutes instead of days or months.
Give a new fresh look to your windows, dialog boxes and forms, using your preferred shapes, 3D effects, surfaces, textures, bitmaps, cursors, animations, sounds, colors and fonts. Inside the trial version package you will find some sample that will demonstrate you the easiness of use of this powerful software component.
This version comes with a full support for Checkboxes and Radio Buttons : 3D Button API can be considered the best "3D Rendering" button engine available on the market today.
3D Button API can also easily transform your buttons into the following controls: Picture control - Animation control - Hyperlink control - Frame control - Led control - your 3D fantasy control.
3D Button API is fully UNICODE compliant, so you will have the possibility to use it with the various languages (such as Japanese, Chinese, Korean, etc.) that make use of double-byte characters.
