Install Info

The Colour Pop-up Menu Component is supplied in a zip file. Before installing you need to extract all the files from the zip file, preserving the directory structure. The following files will be extracted:

  • PJColourPopupMenu.pas – Component source code.
  • PJColourPopupMenu.dcr – Component palette glyph.
  • PJColourPopupMenu.hlp – Help file that integrates with the Delphi 4 to 7 IDE.
  • PJColourPopupMenu.als – Keyword file required when integrating the help file with Delphi 6 and 7.
  • PJColourPopupMenuEd.pas – Component and property editors source code.
  • PJColourPopupMenuEd.dfm – Form file for component editor.
  • ReadMe.htm – Read-me file.
  • ChangeLog.txt – Change log.
  • MPL.txt – Mozilla Public License v1.1.

In addition to the above files you will also find source code for a demo project. These files are in the Demo directory.

You can now install the component into the Delphi IDE. To do this the files PJColourPopupMenu.pas, PJColourPopupMenu.dcr, PJColourPopupMenuEd.pas and PJColourPopupMenuEd.dfm should be added to a design time package. If you need help doing this see here.

Note that the help file included in the download can only integrate with the IDE in Delphi 4-7. For information on how to do this, see this article.
