Install Info

Important note
Please ensure that you have installed the TPJVersionInfo component v3.0 or later before installing the about box component.

TPJAboutBoxDlg, its help files and demo program 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:

  • PJAbout.pas – Component source code.
  • PJAbout.dfm – Form file containing the about box.
  • PJAbout.dcr – Component palette glyph.
  • PJAbout.hlp – Help file that integrates with the Delphi 3-7 IDE.
  • PJAbout.als – Keyword file required when integrating the help file with Delphi 6 and 7.
  • ReadMe.htm – The components' 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 a demo project in the Demo sub-directory.

You can now install the component into the Delphi IDE. The files PJAbout.pas, PJAbout.dfm and PJAbout.dcr are required to do this (64 bit packages do not need PJAbout.dcr). For Delphi 3 onwards you must include these files 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 documentation.
