Very easy to try new looks and concepts. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

It has several stability problems. Many times the engine must be restarted or even the same PC for this to be removed. The documentation is almost non-existent. If you already know the name of the precise routine, you can search for it. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

its management is simple and the development in this is not tedious and it is fast, very useful for the personal and work area in the independent or commercial development recommended Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

despite the stability problems this engine has helped us in the development of pages and back-end in c ++ of these same pages you can make connections with very useful data. It is also easy to handle and the rapid development of this is very useful in the work area, in bringing parameters and sending them Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Rapid development environment and great VCL library. It provides some very good API hooks and routines that make prototyping rapid and very functional. Very easy to test new looks and concepts. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Moved up to Tokyo10.2.3 (I've been w/this platform since Borland TurboC) and the previous and new product is flaky. Help-Search does not function (Confirmed as a bug by TecSuport); the forced use of Explorer breaks IDE start-up functions (Confirmed as a problem & they can't find why by TecSupport). Documentation is close to non-existent. If you already know the precise routine name you can look it up. If I knew it already I probably would not need to find it! While it advertises support for Android & IOS it is very hard to find and may involve new purchases. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Have a good test bed, save work constantly. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

VCL is way easier to use than MFC ever was and those components were reprogrammed to be useful for Android and iOS (and now Linux), so writing a cross platform app should be super easy, especially if you already know the C++ builder platform Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

It's had some stability issues. Before the 10.1 update, we had projects that would fail to link unless you restarted RAD Studio or your computer. One time I had closed Outlook and then my program started linking. They have since fixed that issue, but there are still some problems that require you to close your project and reopen it to fix it. Not a big deal when you realize what they are, but you can be left scratching your head if you are unaware of the problems and you might think it was your changes that caused the errors.

I am super impressed and appreciative that I can use this one compiler with all platforms and that it is actually a consistent developer, and it's FAST!

I am in love with the multi-device designer, I only have to create the basic UI ONCE!!! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I still have issues using the Active X. It's super frustrating that Inprise doesn't seem to be able to level (RAD)out/keep up with newer Windows as fast as Microsoft can. It takes too much tweaking to work with C++ Building. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I took an important project from a C++converted a major project from a C++ framework. I have been able to

make major feature additions and design improvements so much easier. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
