Delphi 6 Personal - AppBrowser?

Posted on 2001-08-12

I just installed D6 Personal and the first thing I missed is the AppBrowser (the thing where you can Ctrl+Click on a identifier and it jumps to the declaration). Also the Shift+Ctrl+Up/Down shortcut dosn't work. So since the OpenTools Api isn't available in the Personal Edition, do you think it's possible to activate these features anyhow? (without buying the Pro/Enterprise version)

thanks for any help

good news - I stumbled over www.gexperts.org and after some questions in their mailing list, I got it working
seems that the ToolsApi is compiled in the runtime package designide.dcp, so you can still use it :-)
btw - they have a nice procedure list expert, not as good as the code explorer but better then nothing and it's quite useable

I downloaded the daily build from 17.08.2001 (just the newest one) and made the changes that Rick Hollerich suggested to me in the gexperts group at yahoo (http://groups.yahoo.com/group/GExpertsDiscuss)

This is not true.  I have Delphi 6 Personal and can compile and use it just fine.  In Project Options-Packages- Runtime packages, put "vcl;vclx;designide" and in GX_CondDefine.inc, comment out all third party products and the BDE lines (Lines 58-64,76-77).  This should allow it to compile. If not let me know and I will check to see if there was something else I changed to compile.  Some of the third party stuff should work, if you have the Delphi 6 versions of them, but I haven't tried it.  Right now I am only trying to fix the Multiline Editor tabs problem.
---------------------------

note - the line numbers are not correct, but I'm sure you will find it :-)

good luck
