Clarion Handy Tools ™ 


Clarion Handy Tools

Thanks for your interest in 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.

Clarion Templates
Source-Code Libraries
Utility Applications

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.

See our About page for more specific details about CHT components.

Generations Beyond

In 2024, CHT commences its 28th Year Of Service To Clarion Developers.

Most Clarion Developers, we're sure, use Clarion in development projects that have likely been in existence for years. And so, many, or most, are locked into third party tools, some of which have vanished, some of which seldom or never update.

But there's one that's always new and fresh, namely:

Clarion Handy Tools

This year, we suggest that you consider developing something NEW with your favorite Clarion Version (C11.1, C11, C10, or C9.1) and only CHT, using no other third party tools.

CHT, as always, is truly:
