Welcome to Raize Components 6!
Raize Components is a user interface design system for Delphi and C++Builder. At its center is a collection of more than 125 general-purpose native VCL controls. Built
on a foundation of technology first created more than fifteen years ago, these high-quality components give developers unsurpassed power and flexibility without sacrificing ease-of-use. In addition to the core set of controls, Raize Components includes more than 100 component designers focused on simplifying user interface developm
ent. Now more than ever, developers use Raize Components to build sophisticated user interfaces in less time with less effort.
The primary focus of Raize Components 6 is on the new VCL capabilities that have been added to Embarcadero RAD Studio starting with XE2. Specifically, 64-bit VCL support and the really cool new VCL Styles support. Unlike other releases of RAD Studio which simply required recompiling the existing code base to provide a new set of DCUs and packages, there were a lot of low-level changes made to the VCL in XE2. For example, many controls migrated smoothly to 64-bit, but many others required low-level modifications. In addition, every control in Raize Components was affected by the new VCL Styles. Each control's display code needed to be significantly modified to fully support for VCL Styles when they are available. It has been a lot of work, but we are certain that you will find the end result really cool!
There are other enhancements and fixes included in Raize Components 6, but 64-bit and VCL Styles support are the major new features. Raize Components 6 definitely leverages RAD Studio XE2, and to get the most out of RC6, you need XE2.
