  7. Rodrigo: I just wanted to thank you for your hard work and the contribution of the VCL Styles Utils, like many people I was getting mediocre results with styles and many controls didn’t work or didn’t look right and several people on the Embarcadero forums said to try your fix and now all controls work with styles and they look right. Thanks again!

  8. Hi Rodrigo,
    In your post her you are showing a custom TSynEdit control. Is there any way you coulds share the source code to get this custom SynEdit component? I’ve installed the standard SynEdit component and it does not support VCL Styling. Any help would be much appreciated. I’m trying to use Delphi VCL Styles for my open source Visual MASM project here instead of the commercial skinning components AlphaSkins.

  9. Delighted to know you are a master of so many programming languages. Your SO contributions on Delphi have been very helpful to me. Please keep posting great Delphi Stuff for it is pure joy in programming.

  10. Me gustaría agradecerle, estoy usando su libSMBIOS, en mi proyecto casemod.
    Sin esta biblioteca, no habría llegado a donde estoy.

    Realmente lo aprecio.

    Enlace de mi proyecto:
