Palette - Can't find "Data Controls"

Recommended Posts

I have inherited a project.  When I look in the palette I can't find 'Data Controls' to add a dbedit object.


How do I add this category to the palette?


I don't know what type of project it is, VCL, fire monkey etc..., if it makes a difference would you tell me how to verify?

FMX does not have a Data Controls palette - it uses regular edits plus live bindings. View the source code of a form and check the uses clause. If it contains items like  FMX.Types, FMX.Controls, FMX.Forms, FMX.Graphics, FMX.Dialogs then this likely a FMX project and not VCL.


If it is not an FMX project try: Make sure you are in Design mode and not Code mode (tabs along bottom of editor) then right click in the Palette area and select "Reset Palette".
