Experts,

I'm fairly new to Delphi, but I'm enjoying it more and more each day. Yesterday I came across Orpheus (sourceforge.net) and it has simplified my life a lot. Are there any other packages out there that I "need" to have? I don't mind paying a little bit for them (say up to USD100), but they need to have royalty-free distribution. A good DBGrid implementation would be nice...

BTW, I'm using Delphi 7 if it matters...

BRgds,
Marius

http://www.dow.wau.nl/aew/DelForExp.html = Delphi Formatting Expert, useful to keep your source readable.
http://www.gexperts.org/ = GExperts, A nice collection of Delphi IDE experts.

The Delphi Super Page is a good place to start looking for other components, free and commercial. The other links are more useful for the Delphi IDE.

http://www.delphizine.com/ = Delphi Informant Magazine, A nice online magazine that also publishes a paper print version. Quite interesting for Delphi developers but unfortunately it isn't free.
An interesting magazine, available world-wide and perhaps the only Delphi-only magazine.

Christmas comes early this year and I'm increasing the point to 60... And then I'll split it three ways between you.
