ScaleRichView is a shareware addon to TRichView, developed by Ilya I. Zelensky ([user]proxy3d[/user])

  • TSRichViewEdit allows editing rich text documents in WYSIWYG mode. It supports scaling and different view modes, including the page view mode.
  • TSclRVRuler is a horizontal or vertical ruler designed to work with TSRichViewEdit. It is inherited from TRVRuler component included in RichViewActions.
  • TSRVToolBar is a simplified analog of TToolBar.
  • TSRVToolWindow uses the TSRVToolBar and displays it in window.
  • TSRVPrint and TSRVPreview are components for printing posters (for example, if you want to print A3 page on A4 printer).
Exe demo (ActionTest project): ...

TSRichViewEdit is a word processor. TSRichViewEdit uses TRichView or TRichViewEdit components (either internal or external components)
The main features of the component are:
  • zooming;
  • WYSIWYG mode;
  • real-time repagination;
  • displaying and printing in different formats (e.g. the document in A5 format can be printed in A3 format);
  • free positioning of page on the screen (optional);
  • variety of document view modes (web mode, draft mode, page view mode, etc.).
  • hint on scrolling containing page number and a short text;
  • vertical and horizontal lines of buttons in the scroll bar area.
TSclRVRuler is a horizontal or vertical ruler.
The class is based on the TRVRuler class and adapts the ruler for work with TSRichViewEdit.

TSRVToolbar is a container for buttons (TSRVToolButton). It arranges buttons in columns and automatically regulates their size and positions.
The main features:
  • all buttons in toolbar have the same height and width;
  • buttons can be automatically moved to the new line and start a new column when they do not fit horizontally in toolbar;
  • different images for different button states (normal, hot, disabled);
  • hints for user in the bottom or the top part of the toolbar.
TSRVToolWindow allows to create a windowed toolbar.
  • the toolbar window is shown when calling the Execute method;
  • hints for user in the bottom or the top part of the window;
  • the toolbar window is closed without any action when it loses focus or when user clicks outside any button on the toolbar.

  • footnotes and endnotes (not included in trial yet)

Update 2007-Aug-16: ScaleRichView v1.2.8

Not all new features are included in the help files yet, it will be fixed in the next update

What's new
1) ScaleRichView supports inserted controls.
Important note: unlike TRichView where controls are inserted directly in viewer/editor window, in ScaleRichView controls are inserted in offscreen window (in invisible TRichViewEdit). ScaleRichView creates images of controls and displays them. That means:
- not all controls can be displayed in such way;
- there are difficulties when controls changes themselves (for example, you cannot see how TButton is pressed, or you cannot see caret in TEdit); this problem will be solved for several important controls, including TMediaPlayer and flash ActiveX.

2) A set of basic controls for inserting in ScaleRichView. It includes TSRVGroupBox, TSRVPanel, TSRVButton, TSRVEdit, TSRVCheckBox, TSRVRadioButton, TSRVLabel. They are similar to standard controls. ScaleRichView has special support for them.
There is a new demo available (not 100% completed yet)

3) More than 120 standard paper formats are supported: ISO
(Europe), ANSI(USA), JIS(Japan) and so on.

4) Saving paper size in RVF and RTF.

5) Bug fixes
