FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
New SDK Simplifies Move to Mac OS 8:
SmartClicks adds Contextual Menus to PowerPlant projects
September 8, 1997 – Vienna, Austria – Tools & Toys today reveiled Developer
Release 1 of SmartClicks(tm), an easy to use SDK (software development kit)
for CodeWarrior users that dramatically simplifies the support of
Contextual Menus. Contextual Menus is a feature of the new Mac OS 8 that
allows the user to display a pop-up menu of useful actions that relate to
the current selection. SmartClicks helps developers to add Contextual Menus
to existing or new software that use Metrowerks Inc’s object oriented
PowerPlant application framework. With Tools & Toys’ SmartClicks library
and only two lines of code, Software developers can now make their
applications Contextual Menus-aware.
“Contextual Menus are one of the hottest features of the new Mac OS!”, said
Andreas Pizsa, President of Tools & Toys Ltd. and developer of SmartClicks.
“With SmartClicks, developers can show their support for Mac OS 8, and it
takes no longer than 10 minutes to make their applications Mac OS 8
compatible.”, Pizsa continues. “SmartClicks not only makes applications
easier to use. With only two lines of code to add, SmartClicks itself is
one of the easiest to use SDKs available!”
