Project: About Box Component.
Applies to: ~>3.6
This non-visual component encapsulates an About Box in a non-visual component. It is displayed by calling its Execute method. It has string properties to display five different pieces of information in the about box. They are: Copyright, Notes, ProgramName, Title and Version.
Alternatively, the about box can display information from a VERSIONINFO resource included in a program file. This is achieved by setting the VersionInfo property to reference a TPJVersionInfo component which extracts the required version information from an executable file.
The application’s icon is displayed in the dialog box. This is the icon specified by the Icon property of the TApplication object. If no icon has been specified for the application then default Delphi icon is used.
Other properties are used to position of the about box on the screen and control the position and appearance of the dialog’s Close button.
The HelpContext property allows Windows Help to be displayed for the dialog box when the F1 key is pressed.
