The correct title of this article is C#Builder. The substitution or omission of the # is because of technical restrictions.

C#Builder, from Borland Software Corporation, is a computer program that allows programmers to create Microsoft Windows and Web applications for the Microsoft .NET Framework using the programming language C#.

A Rapid Application Development IDE, it is an alternative to Microsoft's Visual Studio .NET 2003. It provided a way into .NET programming for Borland based shops. C#Builder's functionality has since been incorporated into Borland's Delphi and C#Builder is no longer developed as a separate application.

It is unable to use the Compact Framework due to a combination of technical and licensing issues.

Version History[edit]

C#Builder 1.0 was announced in May 2003.

C#Builder 2005 was released as part of Delphi 2005 in October 2004.
