Image Editor for PowerBuilder

The latest release of Ultimate Suite for PowerBuilder includes a handy new Image Editor control. Give your users the ability to view and manipulate images directly in your PowerBuilder application.

The control supports two ways to load images. You can pick a file from the file system, or you can paste an image that's in your clipboard. Save and Save As lets you save changes to an existing file or to a new file. The Image Editor also supports unlimited Undo and Redo actions.

Many options have been added for image manipulation. This control allows your user to do the following:

  1. Rotate the image left or right.
  2. Flip the image horizontally or vertically.
  3. Crop
  4. Apply effects:
    • Set brightness and contrast.
    • Grey scale.
    • Black and white.
    • Invert colors.
    • Apply a Sepia tone.

Last but not least; you can zoom and pan your image.

Implementing is extremely simple; Add the u_cst_imageeditor component to any of your window or userobject objects. Toolbar images are provided but you can easily swap them out with images that better match your applications styling.

The Action toolbar on the top and the Zoom toolbar on the bottom can independently be show or hidden. Each button in the toolbar has a corresponding method in the Image Editor control, allowing you to create your own UI around the image editor.
