BCB Component Explaination

Postby RulonV » Wed Mar 16, 2005 5:08 pm

It's not clear to me what the difference is between BCB components and Delphi components. I know the VCL is object Pascal. I also know that you must install BCB packages for components to work in BCB. However, it's not clear what the underlying issue is with BCB components in the Borland Delphi Studio. :?:

Hi,
The issue is that if you write a VCL component using BCB, that component cannot be used in Delphi unless someone first translates the actual code into Object Pascal. For us BCB users, this limits the component's target audience, which is why most third-party components are written in Delphi. (BCB users can use a Delphi component as long as the Pascal unit is provided.)
