    Hey, it's Sean Donnahoe, I know it's been a while since we've talked. This new job is very cool. I want to write a desktop app to display a chart from our electrical code book and have it change values based on user's selections. I am starting off by using a 2 column grid with user selection in column 0 and the data display in column 1.

    I'm wondering what would be the best way to display this data? I was thinking of embedding a grid in column 1 and filling it thusly by breaking it into smaller columns and rows. I also saw that there is a DataGrid, but am completely clueless as to how to use it.

    Any pointers?

    Hi Shelbym,
    I am playing with a docker in X8 (c#) and I faced a strange problem...
    All what I tested on the docker itself run well, but I make a button showing a form. On that form there is a textBox hoping to be able to ply with input text. The strange thing is that Corel application gets the typed keys even if the textBox looks to have focus and cursor is blinking inside it...
    Do you have an idea how to deviate the focus to the damn text box?

    Thanks in advance!

    Hey, how's that cool macro comin'? The worldscale/object scaler macro? I was hoping for a mix between Brian's Worldscale macro (macromonster.com) and apply the set worldscale to the object.

Corel has released a new version of CorelDRAW. With the move to the subscription model they have dropped the year version from the name of the appliction but it still installs to a year folder, so for now I will continue to call is 2022. Let's see what is new in the Object Model for 2022. The list is not that long so I will post the entire list here, no need to download a file this year.

Differences between VGCore (23.1) and VGCore (24.1)

In this post we will be looking at how to modify a Macro / Script in CorelDRAW. Beginning in CorelDRAW 2019 Macros were renamed to Scripts. I have been using CorelDRAW a long time, so I still refer to them as Macros. Just know that depending on your version of CorelDRAW it may use the term Macro or in the newer versions it will use the term Script. The goal of this post is to give you a nudge to try and make an improvement to your favorite macro yourself.

It has been a while since I have done one of these, but since Corel has not yet posted the changes to the Object Model for 2020 I thought I might as well.

I have created an HTML document that shows all the changes between VGCore (2019) and VGCore (2020). The text was to long to post here so I have linked to a .zip file with the full text.

In this post we will be looking at the changes in the XSLT files for X7. Please refer to the previous post Using XSLT files instead of VBA that discusses how to use these files to add a docker to the CorelDRAW UI automatically. Once you understand the changes you will be able to add your docker to the CorelDRAW X7 UI automatically.

Goodbye GMS File

Previously we needed a GMS file that we would call to open and close the docker. In CorelDRAW...
