Extend your Windows apps to mobile with Tethering in XE6

Posted by on in Blogs
In the RAD Studio XE6 release, we introduced tethering components for VCL and FireMonkey. Tethering functionality extends your existing VCL or FireMonkey Windows applications to mobile without having to port your whole Windows application. This allows you to pick the features that make sense on mobile and easily interact with your existing Windows applications.

In XE6, we include tethering demos for both C++ and Delphi. They can be found under:

  • C:\Users\Public\Documents\Embarcadero\Studio\14.0\Samples\CPP\RTL\Tethering    (C++)

  • C:\Users\Public\Documents\Embarcadero\Studio\14.0\Samples\Object Pascal\RTL\Tethering   (Delphi)

The latest demos can also be accessed on SourceForge.

Below is a quick summary of our tethering functionality:

  • Connect your desktop (VCL and FMX) applications and mobile apps

  • Create mobile companion apps for your VCL applications

  • Works via Wi-Fi and on your local network. Future versions will support Bluetooth.
