This documentation patch fixes a bug that resulted in the compiler help displaying the wrong warning message for the compiler when the user pressed the F1 key.

Please refer to updatinghelp.txt in the zip file for more information on how to install this patch

    C++Builder 6 Documentation Update 1

An error in the automated processing of certain Help system components caused the exclusion of the OpenTools API elements in the linking and indexing mechanisms and in the table of contents. This help update refreshes your current index, links, and TOC so that you can access OpenTools API topics directly from these areas.

To download and install:

1) Choose the link that corresponds to your edition of C++Builder 6 (Enterprise, Professional, or Personal), and download the file BCB601.ZIP.

2) Close Help if it is running. Extract the contents of the download to your \CBuilder6\Help installation directory, overwriting existing files of the same names. Note to Windows 9x and Me users: Due to limitations in Microsoft's Windows Help viewing engine, language element indexing--including indexing of OpenTools API elements--is disabled by default. For a description of this limitation, see the "NOTES AND ISSUES: ONLINE HELP" section of your C++Builder 6 readme.txt file.

3) Remove any hidden *.GID and any *.F?? in your CBuilder6|Help directory, and any *.F?? files that match C++Builder Help base file names in your \Windows\Help (or\WinNT\Help) directory. This action will reset your Help indexes when you restart Help. See the "NOTES AND ISSUES: ONLINE HELP" section of your C++Builder 6 readme.txt file for details on removal of these and other autogenerated files.

4) Restart Help.

    VCL Poster

This is an updated Portable Document Format (PDF) version of the C++Builder 6 Hierarchy Chart. The 130K file replaces the BCB6VCLPoster.pdf file on your installation CD. You can download the file to any location on your hard disk (suggested location: \CBuilder6\Help). Adobe Acrobat Reader is required to view PDF files.


IBConnectionBroker, IBDatabaseINI, IBSQLParser, IBScript and IBFilterDialog (in both VCL and CLX forms). IBX components work better, faster and access more advanced features of InterBase never before available in standard components. IBX is designed to serve the needs of InterBase developers and provide a high-performance architecture that is interchangeable with VCL standard data access components. Integrating with other core database features of CodeGear's RAD tools, InterBase Express brings faster, easier InterBase access to C++Builder!
