GraphicEx on GitHub

GraphicEx has not got much love in the past years but there are still quite a number of users who still have it in their code base. This however means GraphicEx must be updated to compile with the latest compilers/IDEs. Additionally, some bug fixes have been incorporated, plus some enhancements, creating what I internally called GraphicEx II. So far however I have never found the time to publish those changes.

In order to improve that situation I placed the current GraphicEx source code on GitHub. Andrzej Borucki had contacted me to contribute some fixes for Delhi 2009 and has now worked on getting the current GraphicEx code to build there (and Lazarus). For those interested, see if that works out for you and if you have contributions to make GraphicEx work better don't hesitate to send it to me (or fork GraphicEx on Github and open a pull request there).

Virtual TreeView Update 5.3.0

This is probably the last update that is also available on Google Code. Google decided to close all download sections for their Code sites. This is of course no problem for Virtual Treeview as it has its own home here and that is about to stay as long as people want to download Virtual Treeview. Joachim Marder again was the master behind this release. As usual you can read the changes on the Virtual TreeView History page.

Virtual Treeview 5.2.2 Update

And here's a new update of Virtual Treeview, provided by Joachim Marder. As usual, you can get your copy from the Soft Gems site and the Google Code download page for Virtual Treeview. Enjoy!

Windows Resource File Parser and Converter

Years ago I was working on a project that required XML files to specify a graphical user interface (GUI) based on SWT and Eclipse, written in Java. Comming from the Windows world and being familiar with resource files I thought it would be a cool idea to use those resource files (*.rc) to generate the GUI dialogs. This would allow reusing already designed dialogs to save some time. For this task I needed a parser that was able to recognize the content of resource files.

Google Code

For collaborative development I use Google Code since a while. At the time being only Virtual Treeview is hosted there.
