Download is online!

uniGUI beta version can be downloaded from Download section. After downloading you may want to take a look at following links: Installation Instructions Running Demos Creating a New Project I'm aware that the documentation is in a very bad shape. Almost unavailable. I'll try to blog a new article each couple of days until I can seriously start improving project docs.

Beta Installer

As I notified to a few people earlier, an automated installer for beta version is being prepared. To create this installer, Inno Setup is used which I think by far is best choice for Delphi developers who want to create highly customized installers.

My goal is to make the installation experience as smooth as possible. Well, I could deploy some zip or rar archives with all required files inside it, but I found it more charming to automate the process! Again, I can't say that installation is 100% automated. At final stage you must open the packages, compile and install them manually. Next versions of installer will automate Package installation process. It can target all supported Delphi versions by uniGUI; Delphi2006, Delphi2007, Delphi2009 & Delphi2010. Default target for installer will be a sub folder under <commondocs>. The reason for this is obvious. Post XP operating systems don't allow writing to "Program Files" folder, so installing Delphi projects in a non-writable folder means trouble. Installer does the following modifications to Delphi related Windows registry settings:

  1. Library Paths required for uniGUI.
  2. Defines a new environment variable called fmsoft.
  3. Disables Notify on Language Exceptions debugger option.

All above modifications except (3) are undone when product is uninstalled. Installer will install uniGUI Package projects plus some required third-parties (including ExtPascal and Ext JS). You must be sure all instances of Delphi are closed before you run the installer. Installer does not check for running instances of Delphi. This installer will deploy no uniGUI source code, only DCUs. Source code distribution policy will be decided later.

Welcome!

Welcome to uniGUI website! I'm not quite certain what to post in this very first blog! I was planning was to post a long blog regarding uniGUI library containing detailed technical aspects of the product, in depth analysis of underlying technology and etc. Right now I only have enough time to write this short welcome message.

As it is apparent from main page, uniGUI is a Web Application Framework for Delphi. It means you can create Delphi applications targeting the Web. Web front end is rendered using famous Ext JS library. Ext JS is a very rich & comprehensive JavaScript framework for creating fully AJAX enabled Web applications. UniGUI uses ExtPascal library to create a gateway between Delphi and Ext JS. More detailed technical stuff and other docs will become available later when first beta installer is ready to publish. My next blog will be about the installer. Sincerely, Farshad Mohajeri FMSoft
