Releasing the Source of VCL Controls based on DevExpress Look & Feel

The “cx-tras” package is a set of components I created nearly ten years ago and have been maintaining since. It is a set of visual components for Delphi that support DevExpress’s Look & Feel technology. This means that they automatically adjust their look based on the appearance and skin settings used in DevExpress VCL applications. The components were originally distributed by myself on request, then by DevExpress Support for a time, and now I’m giving them a home where anyone can access the source.

You can now access the source for the cx-tras package on Bitbucket here.

    Hi Nathanial,

    thanks for the source code release & update, but Office Gizmo won’t compile under XE2 with vcl 12.1? Could you help?

    Thanks in advance

      Sure thing Stuart, I’ll take a look. Thanks for letting me know. I currently have it all working in XE2 with VCL 12.1.3, but I’m downloading and trying 12.1.5 now. I’ll let you know what I find.
