Designed to Fuel Your Imagination
Design Beautiful Desktop and Mobile App UIs
- RAD Studio's C++ version comes with the award-winning VCL framework for high-performance native Windows apps and the powerful FireMonkey (FMX) framework for cross-platform UIs. Visual development for C++ has never been easier and faster – best of all, your designs and code will always be in sync!
- Rapidly design your Windows application with VCL to ensure unmatched native performance
- VCL library improved for use of Microsoft’s WebView 2 control in both TEdgeBrowser and TWebBrowser components, with better support for UserDataFolder and ExecutableFolder configurations.
- Use the visual design menu to easily drag and drop visual and non-visual components from the palette
- Extend your visual UIs with components from multiple certified partners
- Use FMX to create cross-platform apps using the same code base
- Improved TPathData processing and rendering in FireMonkey library, including quadratic Bézier curve commands and other transformations.
- Connect user interface elements to data sources using the LiveBindings Designer
- Validate designs in real time using Live On-Device Preview to broadcast the active form to multiple devices simultaneously
- Build fully responsive designs with resolution-aware components for desktop, tablets, and smartphones
- Deploy platform-specific native controls for an improved user experience

- Customize the IDE for two robust and powerful languages (Delphi and enhanced C++) and your coding style
- Quicken lengthy compiles with highly optimized compilers for every platform
- Get native, high-speed direct access to InterBase, SQLite, MySQL, SQL Server, Oracle, PostgreSQL, DB2, SQL Anywhere, Advantage DB, Firebird, Access, Informix, MongoDB, and more
- Get hints and tips from inline documentation as you code
- Utilize popular libraries such as Boost, Eigen, and ZeroMQ plus leverage a broad range of community tools and libraries
- Integrate with version control systems including Git, Subversion and Mercurial
- Using library suffix of $(Auto) works for C++ projects
- New ToolsAPI for painting in the code editor
- Markdown files can now be opened in multiple editor windows

Fast And Accurate Debugging
- Fix bugs faster with integrated cross-platform native debugging. Use the C++Builder IDE to debug applications running remotely on Windows and iOS!
- Save time with the integrated toolchain bringing the designer, compiler, and debugger together into a single development environment
- Add conditional breakpoints to quickly pause program execution at a specified location or when a particular condition occurs
- Explore the entire call stack to trace the route the executing code took to reach its location
- Inspect the current value of variables while your program pauses during debugging
- Debug on any device! Deploy your app to Windows and iOS devices and debug as though it was running locally. Use breakpoints, stack exploration, tool tips and expression evaluation on local and remote machines with live debugging across all deployment platforms.
- New debugger based on LLDB for macOS Intel and Android 32-bit. All non-Windows platform debuggers across Delphi and C++ have moved to LLDB architecture.
Compile and Deploy High-Performance Apps with C++Builder
- Reach your users by creating apps for their preferred device. Create both desktop and mobile apps from one codebase with C++Builder and deploy to Windows and iOS.
- Go from Ad Hoc to App Store fast. Rapidly produce application bundles for the Windows Store and iOS App Store.
- Updated FireDAC library supports latest Microsoft ODBC Driver for SQL Server, MongoDB new transaction feature, improved FDMonitor and FDExplorer tools, text editor support for SQL syntax highlighting in FireDAC SQL text property editor, and reFind files for migration of dbGo (classic ADO) projects to FireDAC.
- Updated RAD Server has auth token/session expiration option, IP Address and DateTime to logging, and simplified creation of client applications with EMSFireDACClient component.
- Define files to deploy by platform and build configuration. Identify within each project the files to deploy based on the target platform (Windows, iOS) and build configurations for Debug or Release.
- Deploy files directly from the C++Builder IDE. Quickly deploy files to remote machines using Platform Assistant Server (PA Server). PA Server combines the files defined for deployment and packages them into a single application instance.
Improve the Quality of Your Code with C++Builder
- Faster development cycles don't have to mean sacrificing quality! C++Builder comes with many features that employ coding best practices, reduce duplication efforts, and help you become a rockstar coder!
- Build better code by leveraging well-tested and highly optimized native Windows and iOS libraries
- Turn documentation into immediate in-line help for you and your team
- Build unit tests for all of your code using the integrated DUnit frameworks
- Dive into your project without interrupting the application flow by adding live log-in with CodeSite Logging
- Code Editor highlights matching words
Collaborate Better with C++Builder
- C++Builder's collaboration and version control features will help you create better products faster, both as an independent developer or as part of a team. Code Collaboration drives deeper code understanding, better testing, and better products.
- Track and manage changes quickly using version control systems including Subversion, Git and Mercurial repositories
- Easily navigate changes and history using the history tab in the code viewer with the built-in difference viewer
