MetaTreeX displays hierarchical information as a graphs tree on an elliptical parabolic surface, which allows the user to view all the selected information at once rather than drilling down through folders. The user can modify the display by expanding and collapsing nodes, adding and deleting child nodes and changing the display color of each node.
A user can drag the display to center on a desired node and can select the desired node using the mouse.
ActiveX MetaTree edition can be used in any development environment that supports ActiveX controls, such as Visual Basic, VBA, Visual C++, etc. The ActiveX edition is a full-featured copy of the Delphi edition. The only difference is that ActiveX classes have been renamed. The Delphi TMetaTree class corresponds to the current ActiveX MetaTreeX class. TMTNodes corresponds to MTItems while TMTNode corresponds to MTItem.
The component distribution includes a sample application, MTDemo.exe, both as a compiled executable and with sources. It shows the basic usage of the MetaTree component.
