TProfGrid
« on: February 15, 2013, 08:26:44 am »
Hello,

from my delphi 7 times, I used a grid component with name TProfGrid. In 2012 the homepage www.profgrid.com faded away. Now, searching in web the only thing I can find is this article :

http://delphihaters.blogspot.de/2012/07/website-obituary-profgridcom.html

Anybody here who knows this component and is interested and has the knowledge in porting it to Lazarus/LCL? I have the source code from latest version 3.4.4.9

Actually I'm not sure about the legal stuff, and I don't know how to ask the former developer. His name is Nicholas(?). Anybody here who knows him?

With best regards - Ulrich

Well, that's the first thing to sort out.

What did ProfGrid do, that LCL does not provide?

@Bart and @Theo: In you show perfectly that you not spent 5 minutes showing interest in what ProfGrid is..... *GRIN*

Why should I spend 5 minutes on this?

Btw. you are wrong. You are talking about ProfDHTMLEdit v.2.0.3.11 not about ProfGrid v.3.4.4

By ProfGrid.Com. ProfGrid is a grid component used for displaying unbound data, i.e. data that is not necessarily stored in a dataset, but can be any information you supply to the grid. ProfGrid is one of the most powerful unbound grids on the market. The grid's many properties, methods and events give you full control over the grid's operation, and allow you to use it in a wide variety of ways.

Yep.. you're right.

That's why I removed my previous comment.

@theo

Thank you for your suggestions. I know TKGrid and it seems to be comparable to ProfGrid. ProfGrid has RTF text mode implemented, but maybe I can define my own cell writer class for TKGrid. I'm very glad that a Lazarus port for VirtualTreeView exists. Its a great component, I use it already as well, but in my opinion not directly suitable as grid component. Am I wrong? I have never thought about it. Well basically its possible, but I think it need a lot of additional work to implement direct grid editing in the way I need it.

It works, but I don't know if you need it. http://www.lischke-online.de/images/stories/screen-shots/VT3.gif

Btw. do you know http://www.lazarusforum.de/ ?

Hello theo,

sure I know the german forum, but sometimes the response is very low. I guess number of developers here is much higher. Why do you ask?

Normalerweise nicht.

I guess number of developers here is much higher.
Die sind eher auf der Mailing List zu finden.

Why do you ask?
