New and upgraded GUI controls
A new "Hamburger" menu style is now available to arrange menu items in a tree-view style. The menu is accessed by clicking an "hamburger" icon, a trend commonly followed in mobile and web designs. It can prove useful when designing resposive layouts, replacing a standard menu bar with a more compact replacement, to adapt to a resized surface area.
The W$BITMAP library routine can now render glyph font characters as images that can be use in any control that can handle bitmaps. Glyph fonts are vector fonts that contain icons instead of characters, and are widely used in web applications. They are valuable in retaining image quality on high-DPI displays.
The Grid control has been enhanced to better manage different filter types for each column. The provided search panel has been improved to allow case-insensitive searches and all buttons now have an icon.
The tree-view control allows selection of multiple elements on the same level, using a new selection-mode property value. Multiple items can be selected using the standard Control and Alt key combinations.
Message boxes have been revamped with a more modern look and feel, and can now be centerd in the monitor, regardless of the parent window position. Message boxes can be customized by providing a custom COBOL implementation.
