MetaDraw


New Features Include:

  • Visual Studio .Net Support
    MetaDraw 3 is the first version of MetaDraw formally supporting use under Visual Studio .NET development environment. While still operating as an OCX, MetaDraw 3 has been specifically designed and tested for use under .NET as well as older versions of Visual Studio and other programming environments supporting ActiveX controls.

    Introduction of a native MetaDraw .NET Winforms component is anticipated for spring 2003 and will be a FREE upgrade for users purchasing a MetaDraw Subscription License with MetaDraw 3 OCX. Introduction of a MetaDraw .NET Webforms component is anticipated sometime later in 2003.

  • Windows XP Support
    MetaDraw 3 is specifically designed and tested to support Windows XP. MetaDraw 3 is formally supported for use under Windows 95, 98, 2000, NT 4, ME, and XP. Note: while there are no known problems with earlier versions of MetaDraw running in Windows XP, this is the first edition of MetaDraw specifically designed to supporting XP.

  • Includes ALL Features of the MetaDraw 2 Plus Pack

  • Arrow Head / EndPoint Symbols support for Lines, Arcs, PolyLines
