Delphi and C++Builder issues


C++Builder users of class TVector:

Don't mix up the class TVector with the vector class of the Rogue Wave Standard C++ Library. (Sorry for the duplicate naming).

Remark on BCB 3.0: the cross compiler delivered with BCB 3.0 is rather buggy which results in code which is not very stable. We generally do not recommend to use the SDL Components Suite under C++Builder 3.0.

Delphi 2005 problems under .NET

As of January 2005, Delphi 2005 (BDS 9.0.1761.24408) has several bugs which prevent some basic statements from being executed correctly. While we made any attempt to provide transparent work-arounds, there is one point which could not be resolved - we simply have to wait for an update of Delphi 2005.

This point concerns the assignment of colors to pens, fonts, and brushes. Assigning colors for many times causes any program designed for .NET (usíng VCL for .NET) to crash, sooner or later. In order to make things easier we restricted the following features of the SDL Component Suite:

Of course, the restrictions will be removed as soon as Borland provides an update to fix the problem. Please note that this restrictions are only active under the .NET environment, the Win32 version of the SDL Component Suite is fully functional.
