Introduction

RichViewActions is a set of actions for Delphi and C++Builder allowing you to create a user interface for the richview editor. Actions can be assigned to buttons, menu items, toolbars (you can use standard Delphi classes or your favorite third-party components if they support actions).

Actions require no programming - just add a new action in the action manager, assign it to component, and it will do all the work automatically.

RichViewActions support Windows themes and Delphi XE2+ visual styles.
