Suppress showing some packages in Components palette
« on: April 15, 2019, 06:35:16 am »
Is it possible to suppress the viewing of some packages (but let it installed) in the components palette ? I can only shift the packages to the right  :-\ to be 'out of scope'.

Why - eg. Indy install a lot of (actual unneeded by myself) pages to the components palette and i want to suppress the viewing of some pages, without manipulating the original package. Or i must install a package to fullfill the requirements of another package, but do not active use the components by this package.


 
regards
Andreas

It should be sufficient for the IDE to compile a package (it then is aware of it) without installing it for it to be useable by another package that has it as a dependency.
Unless, perhaps, the requiring package is poorly designed, and somehow forces a requirement that  all dependent packages must be IDE-installed (design-time) packages, even if some of them are not design-time packages.

I may be wrong about this. I have never encountered it myself.
Anyway, good practice is always for package builders to make a clear distinction between runtime packages, design-time packages, and run-and-design-time packages.

Right-click on the palette bar. Choose Options. After that it is obvious....
Uninstalling a package from the palette will not remove it.
