Hello,

Twinforms is pleased to announce the release of wxVCL 0.0.2.

wxVCL is a crossplatform C++ library for wxWidgets that contains VCL like functions. Currently it has some basic VCL classes and approx. 600 VCL functions (functions in IniFiles, SysUtils, DateUtils, System, StrUtils etc.). wxVCL can be used to build applications in Linux , MacOSX and Windows (including WinCE).

Features :

1. Contains more than 600 VCL functions
2. Contains basic VCL classes like TStringList, Common Dialogs, IniFile etc 3. Adapted to C++ from LCL (VCL) functions from Freepascal.
4. Can be compiled with BCC, GCC, VC++, Digital Mars C++, WatCom C++.

Interesting, I am developing in Delphi for like 5 years on a professional level. What is your long term goal with wxVCL? I assume you want to port wxDevCPP to a cross platform IDE development kit?

Well,
The reason for creating wxVCL is to make the wxWidgets much friendlier like that of Delphi so that people can migrate their projects to wxWidgets. wxDevC++ is a massive project and I'm not sure wxVCL would be ready to port such a massive project rite now. May be by a yr or 2 I'm hope wxVCL can help port wxDevC++ :o) . But still, we have long way to go.

wxVCL is an opersource project and everyone is welcome to contribute to it.

Thanks,
