lazarus (windows) accepts ActiveX. What do you consider this situation?
or ActiveX to .NET has another feature that out of the .Net another language
You will not have integration?

Any news on Lazarus support?
Lazarus is close to releasing version 1.8 and it looks really good.

Still have had no reason to use Delphi though their sales people have been hounding me with emails to purchase a upgrade to the last version I bought back in 2010, told them it was too expensive.

We will start porting TRichView to Lazarus soon after releasing TRichView 17.
V17 is already uploaded, but we need to update web site.

We just released a major update, and now I want to stop adding new features and concentrate on porting.
Lazarus for Windows will be first, because it seems to be the simplest conversion.
(But I want to make some preliminary steps before porting. The main of them - to remove ANSI text processing where it is possible; the internal representation will be Unicode, not ANSI/Unicode switch, as in the current version)

As a first step to make conversion from VCL, I decided to replace String and AnsiStrings to UnicodeString where it is possible. It's a huge work, and it is almost complete, an update will be uploaded in the next week.
The next step is Lazarus.

Yesterday I finally managed to compile TRichView in Lazarus, almost without hints and warnings.

I still need to complete printing support and to test everything.

Things that are not converted:
- gif animations
- metafiles (they are important for working with RTF and DocX)
- GDI+ (support for GDI+ is included in TRichView, but used only in Report Workshop to draw diagrams)

Although I'm not a potential customer/user for TRichView under Lazarus, I congratulate you with this great development. Keep up the good work! :D

Thank you!
I do not plan to sell Lazarus version separately. May be in future, when not only Windows platform will be supported...
You will be able to install the next update of TRichView both in Delphi and Lazarus from the same source code.

Current progress:
- normal and DB TRichView components are installed;
- all tutorial demos are ported to Lazarus, are tested and work correctly
- all designtime property and component editors are ported.
I'll continue porting and testing all demo projects.

The first update will be released when I convert TRichView, RvHtmlImporter, RichViewXML, HunSpell and ASpell spell checkers.
Then I'll proceed to port RichViewActions, ScaleRichView and Report Workshop.

Current progress: I've converted all TRichView demo projects to Lazarus. DB-demos were converted to use TDbf component. Everything works perfectly.
Things to do before the first release: convert Demos\Addins, RichViewXML, RvHtmlImporter, HunSpell and ASpell.

This is great news and congrats on the port.
Lazarus has come a long way and is a excellent Delphi replacement for those that have given up on embarcadero or who ever has it now
