Package grid

Each package box provides information about a package and a button that lets you install or uninstall that package:

  • Icon: the top area of every package shows an icon that represents the package.
When you hover the mouse over a package icon, GetIt Package Manager replaces the icon with a detailed description of that package.
On the top-right corner of each package icon, a smaller icon shows the languages that each package supports:
  • RX 1.png Both Delphi and C++
  • DX 1.png Delphi
  • CX 1.png C++
Note: If a package is available in Delphi and C++, and the Delphi version of the package also supports C++, GetIt Package Manager displays the Delphi icon only.
  • Name and version: name and version of the package.
Click the name and version of a package to open a web page that provides detailed information about that package.
  • Vendor: name of the vendor that provides the package.
Click the vendor name of a package to open a web page that provides detailed information about that vendor.
  • Install /Uninstall /Buy Now: packages show an Install button if they are not installed, Uninstall button if they are installed, or a Buy Now button if the package can be purchased. See how to install, or purchase a package from GetIt Package Manager.
