Hi all, I've used a tree control from Mabry before (in demo) and wanted to purchase it.  However, the site is down and the email bounces.  Does anyone know if they are still in business?  I would really like to use their tree control as I find the MS ActiveX one a pain.

I don't think they are ... I've tried to go there to see if any updates are available for their GUI pack, been checking it for a couple of months now and I believe it's gone.

I use their treeview control. It works fine, but if I had to do it all again I'd probably get something from one of these guys:

The GUI pak from Mabry had a couple of controls, but some of them didn't work and some of them were very, very difficult to deal with in either Access or VB. I forgot what I paid for the GUI Pack, but it was about half the cost of competing products..

Thanks for the info and links LSM.  I was hoping that was not the case.  I already have a completed project using the demo.  The demo I had was an older version.  Do you know where I could get a copy of the latest version?

Not sure if some of the component vendors would have one ... I checked a few (componentsource, programmersparadise, devexpress) and found no listing. One listed Mabry, but when I clicked on it I received a "No Current Listing" page ...

Hate to say it, but you might be out of luck ... is your app very dependant on the Mabry tree? How difficult would it be to migrate to a different control?

Sheesh, just my luck!  The other ones seem to be overkill and pricey for my needs.  Thanks LSMConsulting, if nobody has anything to add in a few days I'll award you the points.
