  1. OK - so now its about a month since Delphi 11 was releasedand still no sign of these plugins. It's not exactly a great advert for the Getit system (which was supposed to make it much easier to distribute Delphi components and addins) that even Embarcadero hasn't been able to recompile its own tools for distribution after so long.  At least they released the KSVC components after a few weeks.

  2. Hi all! 

    am trying to update an older Delphi desktop/VCL/Windows application to use High DPI and themes, but my head is spinning trying to understand all the pieces of the puzzle. I currently use quite a few different components in the app, including Raize/Konopka VCL controls, TMS grid components, TeeChart, MapWinGIS ActiveX mapping controls and others. I also use the Toolbar 2000 controls for menus, toolbars and popups.

    I would like to rationalize things, replace Toolbar 20000, and am considering replacing the menus/toolbars with Ribbon controls. I've been looking at both the Developer Express and TMS menus and ribbon controls as well as the built in Delphi menus/toolbars, but I am confused about how/whether the pieces fit together.

    The Developer Express and TMS controls seem very well put together but they don't seem to work with Delphi's own VCL styles (Update TMS says its controls DO also support Delphi styles). The Raize components seem to work with VCL styles but are not high DPI aware (yet - not clear if Embarcadero is dropping them). I am not clear if the separate styles implemented in the Developer Express and TMS controls can be integrated with the Delphi VCL styles (e.g. I would not want users to deal with all this complexity).

    Can someone offer some advice on how to move forward or offer pointers to some online resources?

    Thanks in advance for any thoughts and advice!
