System Req.

Add-in Express VCL makes it easy to create Microsoft Office add-ins, smart tags and Excel Real Time Data (RTD) servers using Delphi. Add-in Express creates COM based projects containing all the necessary functionality for any version of Office from 2000 to 2007.

The COM add-ins work on all Office applications and supports standard customisation of the Office GUI including menus/toolbars and more advanced customisations such as customised outlook form and view regions. Add-in Express provides access to Office objects and their events. Add-in Express VCL supports the creation of static and dynamic smart tags that detect specific phrases/masks and display action lists. Additionally it is possible to create Excel specific functionality - Excel RTD servers and UDFs (user defined functions).

Microsoft Office extensibility

Based on the Microsoft Office extensibility, Add-in Express provides you with a component set for creating any types of Microsoft Office plug-ins. It wraps all necessary technologies to interact with all Microsoft Office applications: Microsoft Outlook, Microsoft Excel, Microsoft Word, Microsoft Visio, Microsoft Project, Microsoft InfoPath, etc.

Version-neutrality - from Microsoft Office 2000 to 2007

Due to its version-neutral core, Add-in Express for Delphi transparently supports all available Microsoft Office versions, from Microsoft Office 2000 to Microsoft Office 2007, and works with the same perfection on all Microsoft Office editions, from Student to Ultimate.

The best platform for Microsoft Office development

The bundle of Delphi and Add-in Express gives you the best platform for Microsoft Office development. Delphi produces Win32 code that makes your add-ins compact, fast and easily deployable; Add-in Express offers you a powerful tool for Microsoft Office customisation.

Windows Vista and Microsoft Office 2007

Add-in Express is completely compatible with Windows Vista including its strict security and implements all newest features introduced by Microsoft Office 2007 such as Office 2007 Ribbon, contextual tabs, shared ribbons, the Microsoft Office Menu, Quick Access Toolbar, task panes, etc.

Visual designers

Forget about routine coding and use visual designers to customise Microsoft Office menus, toolbars, ribbon tabs, task panes, forms, windows, regions, etc. And sure make use of special components when accessing Microsoft Office objects and handling its events.

Microsoft Excel Task Panes, RTD and UDF

Add-in Express supports Microsoft Excel RTD servers and Microsoft Excel Automation plug-ins. The former enable you to connect Microsoft Excel with real-time data sources, the latter allow you to develop new worksheet functions. Finally, you get task panes for all Microsoft Excel versions.

Microsoft Outlook-targeted features

For Microsoft Outlook add-ins, Add-in Express not only implements basic technologies but also supplies your Microsoft Outlook plug-ins with new unique features including Advanced Form and View Regions, Microsoft Outlook-context sensitivity, application-level keyboard shortcuts and more.

True RAD - you write applied code only

Add-in Express for Delphi is completely based on the Rapid Application Development (True RAD) paradigm and allows you to reduce the time you used to spend on COM add-in, smart tag and RTD server development at least by half.
