eComic 2010

Well, I finally got off my backside and slapped together the .NET 4.0 version of eComic.  In addition to all the enhancements which 4.0 provides to WPF I also streamlined the opening of the archive files, and added a host of additional features.

The most important of these are:

  • Rebuilt form in .NET 4
  • Rebuilt Comic opening engine to improve speed and performance
  • Removed manual zoom control
  • Implemented programmatic PAN/ZOOM functionality on mouse events and ribbon buttons
  • Added progress bar charting opening archive progress to status bar
  • Modified page number/page name to allow selection of pages via that function
  • Added icon to status bar to indicate type of file loaded
  • Added ability to open a directory of images
  • Added functionality to create simple CBZ file from an opened directory of images
  • Added support for a 'full screen' mode
  • Added additional buttons to RIBBON element for ease of access to the functions
  • Allow for DragDrop of a file from Explorer to force open

I'm still in the process of building documentation for the thing though, which is something I dislike, but you know how it is.
