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 4 through to Clarion 8 has provided us with a never-ending wealth of extension possibilities.

CHT code libraries are 100 percent code compatible with the latest releases of Clarion 8 and Clarion 9. We're 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 (420+ templates presently) 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 420+ templates developed over the last 17 years of continuous advancement, contain well in excess of 15,000 methods organized into an integrated framework to provide a wide range of function.
