How to create custom controls using TUniFrame and TUniContainerPanel?


Recommended Posts

Hi, everyone,


In standard Delphi VCL for the desktop it is possible to create new VCL visual components the easy way of the hard way.

  • The hard way is to create everything in code and hope that it will render correctly later. You design it first and export the design to code.
  • The easy way is to keep always everything as a RAD design. You can do that by using TFrame and converting it to a control (exposing the internal properties or hiding them), or by embedding the TFrame in the control.

I'll like to use the same "easy option" with uniGUI, but I need to encapsulate the frame so that the only published and visible properties come from the control.

It looks like inheriting from TUniContainerPanel could be a solution.


If that is correct, where can I find some demo code for testing it?


I'm interested in providing design time support for that new component, like activating a database connection and showing a live grid.
