TMS VCL Component Sets - System Requirements

Compatability

  • Delphi 5, 6, 7, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2009, 2010
  • C++Builder 5, 6, 2006, 2007, 2009, 2010

Installing components

Installing multiple trial distributions
As Delphi & C++Builder perform strict binary compatibility checks on binary distributed units such as trial versions of the components, this can cause a problem when using multiple different binary component distributions that have a shared unit (such as the PictureContainer or AdvStyleIF unit) This will prevent the installation of multiple binary trial distributions at the same time in Delphi or C++Builder. The only workaround to use these different trial distribution is to install these in different folders and use the different component packages alternatingly for evaluation purposes. The purchased versions of the components which are delivered with full source code do not have this limitation.

Using components with trial versions of Delphi or C++Builder
CodeGear does NOT support the use of binary component distributions with trial version of Delphi or C++Builder or the free Turbo Explorer IDEs. As such, it is not possible to use TMS Component evaluation distributions with trial versions of Delphi or C++Builder or the free Turbo Explorer IDEs. You can use registered full source based versions of the TMS Components though with trial versions of Delphi or C++Builder (not with the free Turbo Explorer IDEs).

Installing component updates
Before installing component updates, make sure that ALL old version files (DCU, BPL, BPI, LIB, DCP, HPP, OBJ .. files) are removed from your Delphi or C++Builder library path. After installing new component versions and compiling applications that have been build with previous component versions, property errors can be raised upon running the applications. This is a common Delphi or C++Builder phenomenon. Solve this by first opening ALL forms in the application that use the updated component, ignore ALL property errors upon opening the forms, save the form files and after this, rebuild the application. The problem will be solved.

Design time issues with TMS Component Pack Pro
When using the TMS Component Pack Pro components and problems appear such as

  • "Could not Load Image, Invalid Format" error when assigning an image to picture components
  • Right click menus do not appear for TAdvNavBar, TAdvPageControl, TAdvToolBar, ToolPanels, grids, planners etc...

this means you have not installed the design time package as instructed in INSTALL.TXT and README.TXT. Make sure to install the TMSDExx.DPK package and this issue will be solved.

TMS Component Pack Pro components appear on the Delphi 2006 palette but not on the C++Builder 2006 palette
Uninstall the TMS Component Pack Pro package files (TMSD2006.bdsproj & TMSDED2006.bdsproj). Reopen the project file TMSD2006.bdsproj and verify in the options that on the linker tab, the setting "Generate all C++ files" is checked. Rebuild & install the TMSD2006.bdsproj package. Repeat these steps also for TMSDED2006.bdsproj.

When installing components in C++Builder 2006 the error : "Delphi personality is required to load project" appears
The install process of components in C++Builder 2006 requires that the Delphi personality is loaded. Start the IDE with all personalities & proceed to install the components. After installing the components, you can restart the IDE with only the C++Builder personality.

IDE updates
Always make sure to have the latest update packs installed for the IDE that is used. For Delphi 6, make sure that the RTL3 update is also installed. If this is not the case, this can for some components result in the error : "Unit XXXXX was compiled with a different version of VarUtils.VarDateFromStr".

After uninstalling a component and installing a component update, some components no longer appear on the palette
Delphi or C++Builder has most likely moved the component to hidden components because of the uninstall. Go to the Configure Palette menu and unhide the component and these should reappear correct on the component palette.

Problem with DsgnIntf or DesignIntf not found
Open the package file editor and in the requires list, add DesignIde.dcp (Delphi) or DesignIde.bpi (C++Builder)

Problem with constants declared in different units with the same name
Delphi or C++Builder supports that constants in different units with the same name are used simultanously. For example, the constant psOffice2003Blue is declared in both AdvPanel.pas & AdvOfficePagerStylers.pas. To use these constants in an application that uses both units, prefix the constant with its namespace, ie: For a TAdvPanel style, use AdvPanel.psOffice2003Blue and for a TAdvOfficePager style use AdvOfficePagerStylers.psOffice2003Blue
