Install Info

The Window State 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:

  • PJWdwState.pas – component source code.
  • PJWdwState.dcr – resource file containing component palette glyphs.
  • PJWdwState.hlp – component help file that integrates with the Delphi 4 to 7 OpenHelp system. Deprecated
  • PJWdwState.als – a-link keyword file for integration with the Delphi 6 or 7 OpenHelp system. Deprecated
  • ReadMe.htm – this file.
  • MPL-2.txt – the Mozilla Public License v2.0.
  • ChangeLog.txt – the project's change log.
  • DocumentationWiki.URL – shortcut to online Wiki documentation.

In addition to the above files you will find the the source code of four demo projects along with readme files in the Demos directory and its 1, 2, 3 and 4 sub-directories. Read DemoReadMe.htm for details of the demos. Although the components are known to compile with Delphi 5 and later, the demos require Delphi 7 as a minimum.

You can now install the components into the Delphi IDE. If you need help doing this see here.

PJWdwState.pas is suitable for inclusion in packages compiled for both 32 bit and 64 bit Windows VCL packages.

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. 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 Wiki shortcut.

NOTE: The help file is deprecated and is no longer being updated. The last update was in the v5.4.1 release. Changes and new features added since then have not been included in the help file.
