Hi ! Remember LiteZarus, eh?


I just wrote a new feature for it, this week :
(1) Allow you to register a duplicated component name.


So, beside there is already a componen registered as "TButton" by LCL package,
you can declare another component with class name TButton.
The only required is your own TButton class should be declared in different unit name (like don't give your unit name "StdCtrls").
Not limited to TButton, it may any TPanel and so.


(2) DesignTime / Designer ready.


Yeah, as you might guessed, what the benefit of having above feature if not for design time?
To switch back to LCL, just activate your form window (click / F12)


Its works ! and free and open source.
and is (actually compatible) Lazarus.

Source code ( or patch it to lazarus your self)

note : if you have forked my old LiteZarus, you can drop and refork.  It is another new github repository.
Whats your opionion?  8-)

So LiteZarus is a branch of Lazarus project now?

Ha, ok.

x2nie:
Hmm... so what's the benefit?


I think the maximum benefit of having LCL's component name (or VCL or FMX or CLX) for LCL Thirdparty is
obviously it is cool & fun & intuitive & less headache & faster while prototyping.


I hope with this, on few soon Laz4Android will has its own real "TLabel", TButton, and fort.
And same with fpGUI or CustomDrawn with their independent package too.


Another possible situation is when a widgetset can't be handled via LCL. Let say by unresolved coordinate system.
Below is how Text-based (console / terminal) application designed WYSIWYG via lazarus.
In this case, having TButton,TForm,TCheckBox and friends, for Non-LCL, will be a fantastic feature for LiteZarus/Lazarus.

Fred vS:
Do you think that there is any chance to integrate MSEgui widgetset in LiteZarus too?
(Maybe too difficult for the form-designer.)
