Install Info

The Drop Files Components are 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:

  • PJDropFiles.pas – component source code.
  • PJDropFiles.dcr – component palette glyphs.
  • PJDropFilesDsgn.pas – property editors and component registration source code.
  • PJDropFilesDsgn.dfm – property editor form.
  • PJDropFiles.hlp – component help file that integrates with the Delphi 3-7 OpenHelp system.
  • PJDropFiles.als – a-link keyword file for integration with the Delphi 6 or 7 OpenHelp system.
  • ReadMe.htm – read-me file.
  • ChangeLog.txt – component's change log.
  • MPL-2.txt – the Mozilla Public License v2.0.
  • Documentation.URL – short-cut to the component's online documentation.

In addition to the above files you will find the source code of two demo projects in the Demo\1 and Demo\2 sub-directories.

You can now install the components into the Delphi IDE. To do this, the files PJDropFiles.pas, PJDropFiles.dcr, PJDropFilesDsgn.pas and PJDropFilesDsgn.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 7 and earlier. For information on how to do this, see this article. Users of other versions of Delphi can either use the help file as a stand-alone file (in which case some links won't work) or you can use the online documentation that can be accessed via the provided Documentation short-cut.
