We have written IBO (TIB_QUERY) aware version's for:
> Greybar's PRintDat ( to print TIB_Grids.
> Kalliopi's Security system (www.Kalliopi.com_), I'm nut sure if they are
still selling the component, but I've written the author to ask if something
can be done.
> VisImage image library (we've hidden all the blob stuff).
> WordTools word processing.
> RB PRO : ibo_pipeline, provided some enhancements and did some leg work
with Enteprise 5.
> We have also Enhanced the grid provided by Kevin Stanton of RDB Soultions,
I sent code to both Jason and Kevin but nothing came of it.
So as you can see we are quite serious about our invlovement and do know a
thing or two.
If anybody is interested in any of the above please post.

There are some interesting possibilities from other vendors...

I use the Dream Collection, from Dream Company. (
(Speaking of which, I recently created an IBO aware version of their
TDCMemo (syntax highlighting memo control) - if anyone is interested I
can make it available somewhere.)

I recently purchased the source to their InfoTreeGrid - which is sort
of a combination between a treeview and a listview. The product
operates off a specialised "source" called an InfoSet, and comes with
an InfoSet for TDataset based controls. I am currently investigating
the possibility of creating an InfoSet to work off TIB_Dataset. If I
am successful I will let you know.
