DBI is giving away a full license of Calendar COM (ctxCalendar; https://www.dbi-tech.com/ComponentPage_ctxCalendar.aspx) to each Southwest Fox/Southwest Xbase++ 2016 attendee (http://www.swfox.net). Calendar COM is a really great Outlook style scheduling control with three fully extensible views baked into one control: a multi-column Day View (a multiple day appointment scheduler for one resource or multiple resource appointment scheduler for one day at a time), a Week View Appointment Scheduler, and a Month Calendar / date picker. It comes in both 32-bit and 64-bit versions. DBI has been a long-time supporter of Southwest Fox and we thank them for their generous support once again this year!
