FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
November 1, 2002, Portland, OR -- Active-X.COM, the largest library of free, downloadable ActiveX Components, today announced the acquisition of the# # #
TierBus(tm) brand name and product line from Voss Software Development.
Three products will be initially released, based upon the existing TierBus product line: The TierBus Application Starter Kit, the TierBus Component Suite, and the TierBus PayNow ActiveX Control.
The TierBus Application Starter Kit provides developers the ability to quickly create new applications.
It includes several tools including a custom TitleBar control, a TrayIcon control,
a splash screen control, an About dialog, custom message boxes,
login form, change password form, and much more.
The TierBus Component Suite is a collection of flat-style ActiveX controls, which includes
a button, calendar, combo box, spinner, tab, property selector, and system tray icon, to
provide a consistent look-and-feel throughout the entire application. Flat components
are "in style" and a heavily requested item for many components.
The TierBus PayNow Control is an ActiveX control which submits purchase information to
payment gateways, such as PayPal, ShareIt!, RegSoft, RegNow, and SWREG.org.
Users are able to register, pay for and unlock software by having a
payment method directly in the application.
Active-X.COM has been the leader since 1996 in providing the largest selection of free,
downloadable ActiveX components. Updated daily, the site offers developers a central
location to find, download, and purchase components for their software development needs.
In addition, Active-X.COM offers the only 100% free Web-based bug tracking system which allows
developers to submit bugs directly to the authors of each product listed at Active-X.COM.
Active-X.COM's easy-to-use, easy-to-manage bug tracking system enables users to easily
communicate, share and track bugs in their own software from anywhere using just a Web browser.
