Delphi 2007 for Win32 provides components, classes, methods, and properties that are compatible with the look and feel of the Vista operating system.
Delphi for Win32 lets you focus on developing applications with Vista support including themed applications and VCL support for glassing, file dialogs, and Task Dialog components, not on having to learn a new development environment.
VCL support for glassing includes making form borders glass, expanding the borders of glassing, and making an API call to the glass portions of a form.
Vista AERO provides an optional glass effect that makes windows and dialogs translucent, so that you can see the graphics below them.
Windows can either have a customizable glass frame or become completely translucent with the SheetOfGlass property. Controls in a glassed area can be difficult to see unless you set the DoubleBuffered property.
Many controls available in Delphi 2007 for Win32 support glass, but some do not.
VCL support for file dialogs includes the New File and New Save dialogs.
VCL support for Task Dialog components includes the progress bar, hints, and multiple, configurable buttons.
The following new components have been added to the Visual Component Library: TFileOpenDialog, TFileSaveDialog and TTaskDialog.
The following new classes have been added: TCustomFileDialog, TCustomFileOpenDialog, TCustomFileSaveDialog, TCustomTaskDialog, TFavoriteLinkItem, TFavoriteLinkItems, TFavoriteLinkItemsEnumerator, TFileTypeItem, TFileTypeItems, TTaskDialogBaseButtonItem, TTaskDialogButtonItem, TTaskDialogButtons, TTaskDialogButtonsEnumerator, TTaskDialogProgressBar and TTaskDialogRadioButtonItem.
