All the controls in the PPJ Framework are directly derived from the equivalent control in the .NET Framework. When there is no equivalent, the base class is simply System.Windows.Forms.Control or System.Windows.Forms.UserControl. Additionally. all PPJ controls implement one or more special interfaces used by the PPJ Framework to recognize PPJ controls and correctly redirect specialized functionality. The table below lists all the control's interfaces:

Interface

Description

ISalWindow

All PPJ controls implement this interface.

ISalControl

Only controls that can hold a value implement this interface. Like SalRadioButton, SalDataField, SalVerticalScrollBar. Controls that cannot hold a value, like SalGroupBox or SalLine, do not implement this interface. These controls can also be bound in a SQL statement as bind variables.

ISalEditControl

Editable controls implement this interface.

ISalListControl

All list controls implement this interface. This is used to normalize also controls like VisOutlineListBox that should respond to SalList* functions as if they were list boxes.

ISalPictureControl

Controls that can show an image implement this interface.

ISalRadioButton

Controls that behave as a radio button implement this interface. Typically these are SalRadioButton, SalCheckBox and SalOptionButton.

ISalAccessory

Accessories controls like SalFormToolBar, SalFormStatusBar and SalFormClientArea implement this interface.

All the controls implementing ISalWindow expose a new event MessageActions. This is where all events that are compatible to the original  Team Developer messages are dispatched to as events.
