Thanks for your interest in CHT (Clarion Handy Tools), an awesome collection of productivity tools and code enhancements for Clarion developers.
CHT consists of an ever-expanding set of Clarion Templates, OOP Classes, Utility Applications, Example Applications and C#-based binary, run-time components that extend or complement the normal functionality of the Clarion Application Development System from SoftVelocity.
By design, Clarion's native desktop application development tools are capable of doing considerably more than is provided for in the default ABC templates, ABC classes and binary run-time components supplied with the product.
Since we are independent software developers ourselves, using Clarion since its inception, we've taken the time, where necessary, to extend many of Clarion's standard capabilities.
The continuous development of Clarion over the years, currently Clarion 9.1, Clarion 10, Clarion 11 and Clarion 11.1, has provided us with a never-ending wealth of extension possibilities.
CHT source-code libraries and templates are 100 percent forward-compatible with all releases of Clarion through to these most recent Clarion releases. Read more about the wide selection of CHT componentry available for present and future Clarion versions, in the "About" section of this website.
In addition to leveraging the Clarion language with numerous source-code class libraries and code-generating templates, CHT is working hard developing C# .NET assemblies for use with Clarion, so that CHT users can leverage the vast code resources of DOT NET, via COM interop, or via direct binary-linking, right into their existing and future Clarion applications.
Throughout 2021, CHT celebrates 25 Years Of Service To Clarion Developers.
Officially, we're marking the entire year of 2021 as our 25th anniversary year.
The heart of CHT (Clarion Handy Tools) is an ever-growing set of source-code class libraries. These are readily latched into your Clarion ABC applications by a variety of Clarion Handy Tools Templates.
Our 131 ± source-code libraries and 450± templates developed over the last 25 years of continuous advancement, contain approximately 6000± unique methods - not counting overrides and derivations - organized into an integrated framework to provide a wide range of function.
