Post by GerryD »

What do I need to do to use RichView with the new release of Delphi?

Fantastic! I needed that, too. Now I can go out and purchase XE2.

Have you tested if TRichView will compile properly for 64-bit Windows?

Also, do you know if TRichView will work with FireMonkey, or will it need the VCL? If it can use FireMonkey, then we would be able use TRichVIew in Mac (and in the future Unix) applications.

And, will TRichView run under iOS? To do so it will have to compile with FreePascal.

Thanks.

Louis

64bit - yes.
FireMonkey - not yet. It's not that simple, because FireMonkey is not a VCL but a different framework. We plan to start porting to FireMonkey later in this year, but I do not know how much time it will take. And the most probably, it will be a separate product.

Re FireMonkey: That plan sounds fine. It's good to know that you will be working on it. ... and of course, it is hard to guess the problems you'll encounter while trying to port to it.

Out of curiousity, what VCL objects does TRichView use that you'll have to change?

RV uses GDI for, well, almost everything. GDI is Windows. The cool thing is that they already have an abstraction layer (a graphic interface), so something else could be used without writing too much.

I just discovered:

Keep in mind that there is no way to use this tool to "convert" a third party VCL control to FireMonkey. Its usefulness in anything beyond the most trivial of UIs is questionable.

Delphi XE2-compatible version is available for registered users.
If you are a registered user but do not have access to protected forums, send me a private message requesting access.

A public (trial) version will be updated soon (at the beginning of the next week)

Sorry, it will be started only after releasing TRichView 14. Currently, we are working on adding "real styles", like in MS Word.

In our project, we need only manage a edit box that changes style (I, B, U), superscript and subscript and 16 text colours. It is reasonable to wait this for end of 2012?

Been quite some years now. any progress in terms of the Rich editor in firemonkey?

I have a hard time finding a decent rich editor for firemonkey, that supports page sizes, ruler alignment, footers/headers, ...
