CHT - 20 Years Extending Clarion

Thanks for your interest in The Clarion Handy Tools, an awesome collection of productivity enhancements for Clarion developers. These tools consist of an ever-expanding set of Clarion Templates and OOP Classes that extend or complement the normal functionality of the Clarion Application Development System from SoftVelocity.

By design, the Clarion Application Development System is capable of doing considerably more than is provided for in the default ABC templates and ABC classes supplied with the product. Since we are independent software developers ourselves, using Clarion since 1984, we've taken the time, where necessary, to extend many of Clarion's standard capabilities. The continuous development of Clarion for Windows from Clarion 5 through to Clarion 10 has provided us with a never-ending wealth of extension possibilities.

CHT code libraries and templates are 100 percent compatible with all releases of Clarion 5 through Clarion 10. Read more about the various CHT packages available for past and present Clarion versions in the "About" section of this website.

In addition to leveraging the Clarion language with numerous source-code classes and code-generating templates, CHT is working hard porting numerous .NET assemblies -- built with C# -- for use with the Clarion Application Development System, so that CHT users can leverage .NET via COM interop, right in their existing Clarion Win32/Win64 applications.

The heart of The Clarion Handy Tools is an ever-growing set of code-generating templates and a set of classes that are easily latched into your Clarion ABC applications by a variety of Clarion Handy Tools Templates. Our 130 Source Code Libraries and 470+ templates developed over the last 20 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.
