Design Beautiful Windows and iOS UIs with C++Builder
RAD Studio’s C++ version comes with the award-winning VCL framework for high-performance native Windows apps and the powerful FireMonkey (FMX) framework for cross-platform UIs. Visual development for C++ has never been easier and faster – best of all your designs and your code will always be in sync!
- Rapidly design your Windows application with VCL to ensure unmatched native performance
- Easily drag-and-drop visual and non-visual components from the palette using our award winning visual designer
- Quickly extend your visual UIs with components from multiple certified partners
- Use FMX if you have cross-platform use cases and you want to use the same code base
- Save time by easily binding data sources visually to user interface elements using the LiveBindings Designer
- Real-time design validation using Live On-Device Preview to broadcast the active form to multiple devices simultaneously
- Add a responsive design with high DPI resolution-aware components for desktop, tablets, and smartphones
- Leverage platform-specific native controls for an improved UX
Code Faster and Smarter with C++Builder
Smart developers and Agile software teams write better code faster using modern OOP practices and C++Builder’s robust frameworks and feature-rich IDE.
- Spend less time waiting for lengthy compiles with our highly optimized modern C++ compilers for Windows and iOS
- Code Insight™ delivers code-completion based on your code and used libraries to help you code quickly and accurately plus customize the IDE to meet your coding style.
- Get native, high-speed direct access to InterBase, SQLite, MySQL, SQL Server, Oracle, PostgreSQL, DB2, SQL Anywhere, Advantage DB, Firebird, Access, Informix, MongoDB, and more.
- Get hints and tips from inline documentation as you write code
- Utilize popular libraries such as Boost, Eigen, and ZeroMQ plus leverage a broad range of community tools and libraries.
- Integrate with version control systems including Git, Subversion and Mercurial
Debug Faster with C++Builder’s Integrated Native Debugging
Get to the bottom of bugs faster with integrated cross-platform native debugging. Using the C++Builder IDE, you can debug applications running remotely on Windows and iOS!
- Save time with the integrated toolchain bringing the designer, compiler, and debugger together into a single development environment.
- Add conditional breakpoints to quickly pause program execution at a specified location or when a particular condition occurs.
- Quickly explore the entire call stack so you can trace backward to discover the route the executing code took to reach the current location.
- Easily inspect the current value of variables while your program has paused during debugging.
- Debug on any device! Deploy your app to Windows and iOS devices and debug as though it was running locally. Use breakpoints, stack exploration, tool tips and expression evaluation on local and remote machines with live debugging across all deployment platforms.
Compile and Deploy High-Performance Apps with C++Builder
Reach your users by creating apps for their preferred device. Create both desktop and mobile apps from one codebase with C++Builder and deploy to Windows and iOS.
- Ad Hoc to Store: Rapidly produce application bundles that can be deployed to Windows Store (using Desktop bridge).
- Define files to deploy by platform and build configuration. Developers can identify within each project the files to deploy based on target platform (e.g. Windows, iOS) and build configurations (e.g. Debug or Release)
- Deploy files directly from the C++Builder IDE. Quickly deploy files to remote machines using Platform Assistant Server (PA Server). PA Server combines the files defined for deployment and packages them into a single application instance.
Easily Improve the Quality of Your Code with C++Builder
Faster development cycles don’t have to result in sacrificing quality! C++Builder includes many features to help enforce coding best practices, reduce duplication efforts, and help you become a coding rock star!
- Build better code by leveraging well-tested and highly optimized native Windows and iOS libraries.
- Turn your code documentation into immediate in-line help available to you or other developers in your team.
- Build unit tests for all of your code using the included DUnit and DUnitX frameworks.
- See what is going on inside your application without interrupting the application flow by adding live logging to any application with CodeSite Logging
Collaborate Better with C++Builder
The C++Builder’s collaboration and version control features will help you create better products faster, both as a lone developer or as part of a team. Code Collaboration drives deeper code understanding, better testing and better products.
- Track and manage changes using version control systems including Subversion, Git and Mercurial repositories
