REALbasic programmers can reduce development time and effort on most applications with reusable RbApp components. All components are built with pure REALbasic code that has been compiled and tested on Windows XP and Vista or Mac OS X on PPC and Intel computers.

RbApp empowers applications that require graphics, page layout, data entry and manipulation grids, text editing, undo/redo commands, tool bars and palettes, string lists, XML storage, cross-platform file management, charts or graphs. Interface classes are included to support QuickHelp and QuickLicense within any REALbasic application. On Mac, help and license files can be embedded directly within the application file.

RbApp 2.3 has new properties, methods and events within some components. The new release has been updated to support the latest 2009 R4 release of REALbasic from Real Software.

RbApp components include:

* RbGrid – Flexible, scaleable grid with powerful programming control

* RbChart – Dynamic charts, graphs and tables with minimal programming

* RbEdit – Text editing of large files with undo/redo, find/replace and print
