: So, now that I have upgraded to RAD Studio 2007 Pro, how do I install the RxLib and RichPrint components? Neither has any installation instructions.

: RxLib seems to be dropping off the radar. It took a while to locate it. Along the way I ran into RichPrint, which claims to work with RxLib.

: Also, where can I find documentation for RxLib?

RxLib for Delphi is an "Open Source" project, see: sourceforge.net/projects/rxlib
The latest version is 2.7.7, it is compatible with Delphi 5, 6 and 7, BDS 2005, BDS 2006, Turbo Delphi 2006 and Delphi 2007.

Note however that the development of RxLib was terminated, so for new projects it's better to use the Jedi Visual Component Library (JVCL) instead. See: sourceforge.net/projects/jvcl

The JVCL is a library of over 500 Delphi components; among others, all RxLib components are integrated in the JVCL. It also contains the JvPrintPreview components.

Included with the JVCL package are a lot of demo projects, such as the "EditorDemo" using the TJvRichEdit component, and the project "JvPrvwDemo" using the TJvRichEdit and the JvPrintPreview components.

Over the next days, we'll give the JVCL a test spin and we'll report here in the Forum.
