Design Beautiful Desktop and Mobile App UIs
with RAD Studio
Are you ready to design the best UIs of your life? Our award winning VCL framework for Windows and FireMonkey (FMX) visual framework for cross-platform UIs provide you with the foundation for intuitive, beautiful user interfaces that wow on every platform: Windows, macOS, iOS, and Android.
- Design your master UI layout once, then easily customize platform- and device-specific views without duplication of design effort
- Drag-and-drop visual and non-visual components from the palette using our visual designer
- Visually connect user interface elements to data sources using the LiveBindings Designer
- Real-time design validation using Live On-Device Preview to broadcast the active form to multiple devices simultaneously
- Add responsive design with resolution-aware components for desktop, tablets, and smartphones
- Real, platform-specific native controls for an improved user experience
Code Faster and Smarter with RAD Studio
Smart developers and Agile software teams write better code faster using modern OOP practices and RAD Studio’s robust frameworks and feature-rich IDE.
- Spend less time waiting for lengthy compiles with our highly optimized compilers for every platform
- Choose from two robust and powerful languages (Delphi and enhanced C++) and customize the IDE to meet your coding style
- Code Insight™ delivers auto-code-completion based on your code and used libraries to help you code quickly and accurately
- Get hints and tips from inline documentation as you write code
- Keep your development agile with the VCL designer, Agile refactoring and Live Templates
- Integrate with version control systems including Git, Subversion and Mercurial
Debug Faster with RAD Studio’s Integrated Native Debugging
Get to the bottom of bugs faster with integrated cross-platform native debugging. Using the RAD Studio IDE, you can debug applications running remotely on Windows, macOS, iOS, Android and Linux!
- Add conditional breakpoints to quickly pause program execution at a specified location or when a particular condition occurs.
- Explore the entire call stack so you can trace backward to discover the route the executing code took to reach the current location.
- Inspect the current value of variables while your program has paused during debugging.
- Debug on any device! Deploy your app to any iOS, Android or macOS device 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.
Compile and Deploy with RAD Studio
Reach your users by creating apps for their preferred device. Create both desktop and mobile apps from one codebase with RAD Studio and deploy to Windows, macOS, iOS, Android and Linux!
- Ad Hoc to App Store. Rapidly produce application bundles that can be deployed to Windows Store (using Desktop bridge), Apple App Store and Google Play Store
- Define files to deploy by platform and build configuration. Developers can identify within each project the files to deploy based on target platform (e.g. Windows, macOS, Android, iOS, Linux) and build configurations (e.g. Debug or Release)
- Deploy files directly from the RAD Studio 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 RAD Studio
Faster development cycles don’t have to result in sacrificing quality! RAD Studio includes many features to help enforce coding best practices, reduce duplication efforts, and help you become a coding rock star!
- Build better code by leveraging well-tested and highly optimized cross-platform libraries.
- Turn your code documentation into immediate in-line help available to you or other developers in your team.
- Build unit tests for all of your code using the included DUnit and DUnitX frameworks.
- See what is going on inside your application without interrupting the application flow by adding live logging to any application with CodeSite Logging
Collaborate Better with RAD Studio
The RAD Studio’s collaboration and version control features will help you create better products faster, both as a lone developer or as part of a team. Code Collaboration drives deeper code understanding, better testing and better products.
- Track and manage changes using version control systems including Subversion, Git and Mercurial repositories
- Navigate changes and history using the history tab in the code viewer with the built-in difference viewer
- Use RAD Studio command line compilers that are ideal for integrating into continuous build configurations quickly using our support for MSBuild or CMake projects.
