People who are using Pro version of TeeChart components have problem compiling uniGUI packages. As a workaround I removed TUniChart component from uniGUI package and moved it to uniGUIEx package. Please note that you won't be able to use TUniChart component unless you're using the standard version of TeeChart shipped with Delphi. Please see ChangeLog for details. New build version 0.80.2.796 is available for download.
Major changes in this new version:
- Ext JS library upgraded to latest public release 3.3.0
- New TUniChart component (See included demo)
- TabOrder & TabStop properties implemented for data input controls in Web mode
Please see ChangeLog for details. Important: Starting with this version distributed "ext" folder is renamed to "ext-x.y.z" format where x.y.x is the version of included Ext JS library. For example in this version folder name is ext-3.3.0 which is the folder that must be distributed with your applications.
This new version mainly focuses on Unicode support and its related bugs in previous versions. It also removes dependency to Delphi's default Indy version. It is done by including a custom version of Indy library (10.5.7) which I call it uIndy. In uIndy all Indy units are renamed by adding letter "u" to beginning of the original Indy unit name. e.g. IdGlobal has become uIdGlobal and etc. As a result uniGUI will use uIndy which won't conflict with custom Indy versions that you may have previously installed. This will also fix Delphi 2009 Unicode problem. In previous versions, uniGUI couldn't support Unicode in Delphi 2009 because Indy version shipped with D2009 wasn't completely ready for Unicode. Please see ChangeLog for details.
Form Inheritance is one of the advanced features in Delphi. I've never used it much myself, but I know without it uniGUI can not be considered as complete. Some users asked about it and I decided to speed up its implementation.Currently it is implemented and being tested.
Procedure to create a new Inherited Form is a bit different than Delphi. You must use the newly added uniGUI Inherited Form function in the Wizard to create a new Inherited Form. It will display a list of available forms in your project. By simply selecting a Form from this list a new Inherited Form will be created. This feature will be available in next version 0.71.0
Thanks to all who downloaded first beta. I invite anyone who want to ask questions, discuss issues, report bugs or receive support post a message to one of the support newsgroups. It is much easier to keep track of posts and replies in a newsgroup. Regards, Farshad
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.
