Trial for Lazarus

Post by jgkoehn »

Greetings Sergey,
A fellow worker is looking to test TRichView etc in Lazarus. But per email 18.4 doesn't like Lazarus and not sure how to get a trial for him to test of 18.3. Also the installer stops because he doesn't have Delphi. Thoughts?

Unfortunately, Lazarus trial is not possible. Or, at least, I do not know how to create it.
It recompilation in Lazarus makes compiled files incompatible.
So, to test our components, you either need Delphi, or test precompiled demo projects.
Generally, everything is ported to Lazarus, except for:
- metafiles and gifs are not supported (because Lazarus does not have classes form them)
- smooth drawing in SRVControls is not supported (because it requires GDI+)
- ReportWorkshop is not ported yet.

Generally speaking TRichView and Lazarus are playing quite nice. Maybe later on as I get more and more of the regex built in. I will shoot over a project I am working on that uses your ActionUniDemo.

I plan to upload v18.5 tomorrow, with fixed Lazarus support.

Downloaded the latest laz version of the TRichView Components.
Installation went without a hitch. Everything compiled and installed properly.
Just started embedding (reusing) the excellent TRichViewAction Demo into my own Laz Code. I had to do a clean build once of the code and thus far no issues.
I''ll post a more extensive report as I get deeper into it but Wow! RichView is saving me thousands of hours. So happy to see it ported over to Lazarus.

Thanks Sergey!

Can you explain your process? Do you habe delphi installed? Someone else is trying to get the trial working on lazarus but it wont get past install since he doesnt have delphi.

Trial cannot be installed in Lazarus, only the full version.
