WizardInterface (Delphi)

Description

The following sample creates a menu wizard. It adds a new button in the Help menu that displays the name for each component of the active form. To use this sample, create a Delphi package, add a form with TMemo and TButton components and a new unit to your new package by right-clicking the bpl and selecting "Add New". Then add the code below. Make sure that the form name is NameListForm, so the Wizard unit finds it.

Because MenuWizardUnit uses ToolsAPI, select View > Project > Add to Project. This will display the "Add to Project" dialog. Select "designide.dcp" from the EMBT>RAD Studio\8.0\lib\win32\release installation directory. You may have to set the file type to *.*

The host app for your bpl is the IDE; so you need to specify EMBT\RAD Studio\8.0\bin\bds.exe in View > Run > Parameters as the host app.

To run, load the code project and then right-click the bpl file and select install.
