Using Delphi Styles – Damien Bootsma – Embarcadero

Damien calls in to see us in Melbourne from time to time and in November the subject matter of his presentation was “VCL Styles”.

A number of VCL style files are shipped with Delphi ( .vsf files in   Redist\styles). The demos showed how to allow a project to choose an included style or to load its own style file. Also important are the style hooks that allow you to enhance or bypass a style feature on some components.

Damien explained the main components of a VCL “styled” form and demonstrated how using the Bitmap Style designer and a simple bitmap editor it is easy to customize your arrows, check marks and other style features.

Damien’s sample code and the presentation PDF are available here
