Install Info

Important note for upgraders
If you are updating from an earlier version of this component and have installed the DelphiDabbler About Box Component you may need to uninstall it before updating this component, and re-install the About Box Component once the update has been installed. If the About Box Component is earlier that v3.2 it will need to be updated to the most recent version.

The Version Information Component is supplied in a zip file. Before installing you need to extract all the files from the zip file. The following files will be extracted:

  • PJVersionInfo.pas – Component source code.
  • PJVersionInfo.dcr – Component palette glyph.
  • PJVersionInfo.hlp – Help file that integrates into the Delphi 3-7 IDE.
  • PJVersionInfo.als – Keyword file required when integrating the help file with Delphi 6 and 7.
  • ReadMe.htm – The component's read-me file.
  • ChangeLog.txt – Change log.
  • MPL-2.txt – Mozilla Public License v2.0.
  • Documentation.URL – Shortcut to the component's online documentation.

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

You can now install the component into the Delphi IDE.

For Delphi 3 onwards you must include PJVersionInfo.pas and PJVersionInfo.dcr in a design time package that is installed into the Delphi IDE. 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. 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 componenent documentation.
