Creating Custom Delphi FireMonkey Components

Description : How to create custom components for the FireMonkey application platform.
Objective:  To enhance your mobile and desktop applications by creating custom reusable FireMonkey controls.
Presenter: Ray Konopka from Raize Software
Software Versions Supported: Delphi XE5 / XE6, RAD Studio XE5 / XE6.
Event: CodeRage 8
Level: Intermediate

Rapid application development (RAD) software solutions such as Delphi and C++ Builder uses a component-based framework that significantly reduces software development time.  RAD Studio FireMonkey components-based framework not only allows for faster delivery, more reliable systems (due to previously tested components), reusability and increase in productivity, but allows developers to target multi-device platforms (Android, iOS, Mac, Windows) from one codebase.

While RAD Studio (Delphi/C++ Builder) includes a wide range of FireMonkey components, there are often times when the base controls that comes with FireMonkey are insufficient. In the following video, Ray Konopka of Raize Software demonstrates how to enhance your mobile and desktop applications by creating custom reusable FireMonkey Components.
