I have bought a component with source that I want to modify in some simple ways.
I am using Delphi 7.
Can someone show me how to edit the component and run it in the IDE.
As a simple example, if you can add a msgbox ('Hello world...!') to the paint or create event of the component and then walk me through running it in the iDE, that's all I want - I can take care of the actual coding myself.
I am an experienced programmer and I have created a component set when using Delphi 2 - 10 years ago.
I don't want to relearn the whole topic - just to be able to make some simple changes and see them.
