Features

Component Organization

The components in Konopka Signature VCL Controls are grouped into the following seven component palette pages. Rather than isolate the data-aware controls on a separate page, controls are grouped by type and data-aware controls reside on the same page as their non-data-aware counterparts. For a complete list of all the controls please see the Component List page.

  • Raize Panels
  • Raize Edits
  • Raize Lists
  • Raize Buttons
  • Raize Shell
  • Raize Widgets

Component Designers

Konopka Signature VL Controls provides an extensive set of component designers built to increase your productivity when designing and implementing UI.

Nearly every single component in the library supports a customized context menu. Simply right-click on a component in the Form Designer and you will be presented with a list of the common settings associated with the component.

Support for VCL Styles

Konopka Signature VCL Controls has full support for VCL Styles – including the free Windows 10 VCL Style.

Custom Framing

Every edit field, list box, combo box, tree view, and list view control in Konopka Signature VCL Controls contains a set of properties that affect the appearance of the component's border and other aspects of the component's appearance. In particular a control's border can be displayed in 1 of 11 different styles.

The Custom Framing properties also allow developers to select which sides of the frame will appear. As a result, all of the components can appear as line-style controls for example. This makes Konopka Signature VCL Controls the library of choice for creating applications that mimic paper forms.

To make it even easier to manage the appearance of controls, each control that supports Custom Framing can be connected to a TRzFrameController, which has its own set of framing properties. When a property is changed in a TRzFrameController, the corresponding property in all connected controls is automatically updated.
