IDE Integration pack for Delphi 8 & C#Builder 1.0

By: Allen Bauer

Abstract: IDE integration packs now available from CodeCentral.

IDE Integration packs contain the nessesary files to compile a Win32 VCL based IDE add-in for either C#Builder 1 or Delphi 8. They contain the nessesary Win32 Delphi compiler and .dcp files in order to only build IDE addins.

For Delphi 8:

For C#Builder 1.0:

There are also two new files in addition to the changes made to ToolsAPI.pas; PaletteAPI.pas and PropInspAPI.pas. These two files describe the APIs to the new Tool Palette and the Object Inspector, respectively.

Please note that these are provided as-is and are unsupported.

You will be required to click through a license stating this in order to download the files. Make sure you do not mix the C#Builder version with the Delphi 8 version and vice-versa. Also, an IDE add-in built with the files from the C#Builder integration pack will not work on Delphi 8. The same holds for IDE add-ins built with the Delphi 8 version cannot be used with C#Builder.

The version of the Win32 VCL shipped with Delphi 8 is different that the Delphi 7 and may contain some subtle differences in behavior and properties.

Any bug reports should be made through Quality Central.
