Install Info

The Menu Speed Button 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:

  • PJMenuSpeedButtons.pas – Component source code.
  • PJMenuSpeedButtons.dcr – Component palette glyphs.
  • PJMenuSpeedButtons.res – Resource file containing default glyph for TPJLinkedMenuSpeedButton component.
  • PJMenuSpeedButtons.hlp – Help file that integrates with the Delphi 3 to 7 IDE.
  • PJMenuSpeedButtons.als – Keyword file required when integrating the help file with Delphi 6 and 7.
  • PJMenuSpeedButtons.rc – Resource source file used to create PJMenuSpeedButtons.res.
  • DropDown.bmp – Default glyph included in resource file by PJMenuSpeedButtons.rc.
  • ReadMe.htm – Read-me file.
  • ChangeLog.txt – Change log.

In addition to the above files you will also find source code for a demo project and the help file. These files are in the Demo and Help directories respectively.

You can now install the components into the Delphi IDE. To do this the files PJMenuSpeedButtons.pas, PJMenuSpeedButtons.dcr and PJMenuSpeedButtons.res 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 3-7. For information on how to do this, see this article.
