Adding Components to the Tool Palette - FireMonkey Guide

Back to Styles.

By default some components used within styles are not installed to the tool palette and thus cannot be added to styles from within the editor.

To work around this,

  • Create a new package from within the IDE (File/New/Package - Delphi).
  • Add a new unit (File/New/Unit - Delphi).
  • Copy the text below into the unit
    unit RegisterClasses;

    interface
    uses FMX.StylesClasses;

    procedure Register;

    implementation

    procedure Register
    ;
    begin
      RegisterComponents
    ('Styles'[TStyleDescription]);
    end;

    end
  • Hit F9 to run and save the unit and package with appropriate names (it will fail to run because it’s not an executable. That’s OK).
  • In the project inspector, right click the package and select Install. You may get a message about needing to add FireMonkey. If so, click Yes.
