TRichView and ScaleRichView for RAD Studio XE7

Post by Sergey Tkachenko » Wed Sep 10, 2014 6:41 am

We updated TRichView, ScaleRichView and related components to add support for Embarcadero Delphi and C++Builder XE7.

Like for the previous versions of RAD Studio, we included two sets of packages:
- *DXE7.dproj packages install the components in Delphi and C++Builder; they require Delphi personality
- *CBXE7.cbproj packages install the components in C++Builder; use them only if you do not have Delphi.

The trial version includes only *DXE7.dproj packages. C++Builder-only packages are available on request.

RAD Studio XE7 do not include BDE components any more, so we created new versions of all our DB demo projects, using FireDAC components (TFDConnection, TFDTable) and Interbase tables.
We have 4 db demos:
DB Demos\1 DBRichViewEdit\ - a very basic project using TDBRichViewEdit component
DB Demos\2 RichViewEdit\ - a very basic project, the same functionality as the demo above, but records are edited in a non-db editor TRichViewEdit
DB Demos\3 DBGrid\ - a project showing how to display TRichView document in a custom drawn TDBGrid component
Assorted\Fields\MailMerge2\ - two projects; the template editor edits a template containing field codes and a database containing field values; the main application replaces field codes to values

In ScaleRichView demo projects, there is a MailMerge2 demo as well.
It can be found in Demos\RVDemos\Assorted\Fields\MailMerge2\ There are BDE and FireDAC versions of this demo too.

Update without changing versions number: we replaced background bitmap images in the demos in 3-ScaleRichView\Demos\ActionTestTabs\.
RAD Studios XE6 and XE7 did not like the old images. As far as I understand, these bitmaps were not completely correct, but older versions of Delphi still could work with them; XE6 and XE7 appeared to be more sensitive.
The new image looks exactly like the old image.
Similar background images in the Ribbon and C++ versions of the ScaleRichView ActionTest demos were replaced when XE6 was released; but we overlooked ActionTestTabs demos.
