Feb 17 Webinar - Easily add Windows 10 look, feel and new components to your existing VCL applications

Posted by on in Programming

On Wednesday, February 17, 2016 I presented a webinar that showed you how to easily move your existing Delphi and C++Builder VCL applications forward with the new Windows 10 look, feel and new components and have the apps run on Windows 7,8 and 10.

Webinar Description:

This Webinar shows you how to take an existing Delphi and C++Builder customer and orders business VCL application, the Marine Adventures App, and update it to look like a Windows 10 app. You’ll see how easy it is to use some of the new 10 Seattle VCL controls and Windows styles to create an app that looks great on Windows 10, 8 and 7. Your app will still run on all of the versions of Windows that we support. The webinar will include detailed technical demonstrations.
