· Improved custom control integration and flexibility
InfoPower allows you to embed a wider variety of controls in the inspector. You can now even embed non-InfoPower controls, such as the TDBImage. The inspector also allows each custom control to do their own painting in the grid so that even graphics, richedits, etc. will be displayed for every row in the grid without any code on your part.

· Alternating colors for rows
New property to automatically alternate the row colors and to highlight the active column
· Enhanced hierarchical display
When items are expanded., the inspector now paints tree lines supporting an elegant tree display.
· Group Related fields together

· Use it Unbound (without a datasource) or with a single record.

InfoPower gives you incredibly flexible and expressive picture masks which greatly assist in automatically validating your user's input. InfoPower's masks duplicate the Picture function that's been available in Borland's Paradox relational database product, providing the power of a full mask language instead of just a mask template. Picture masks greatly assists the end-user during data entry by intelligent auto-filling of characters where appropriate as well as informing them if they have incorrectly entered any data. This allows data entry to be faster and easier. Here are some examples of the power of picture masks.
