What's it all about?[edit]

Is there anything visual about the VCL? Are any components noteworthy enough to be discussed on Wikipedia? Is the VCL one library, and if so, is it finished? Is there a catalog for it? D021317c 23:53, 6 February 2007 (UTC)

VCL contains all the basic UI classes - things like forms, buttons, listboxes, etc. Barry Kelly (talk) 17:20, 21 February 2008 (UTC)


Presently, the article states that: "The VCL forms an object hierarchy where all other objects inherit or indirectly inherit the TObject class" Is this actually true? I always thought that TObject is the root class in object model of Component Pascal, and VCL is a separate library which builds on that, with TComponent being its root class. -- int19h (talk) 11:11, 29 November 2007 (UTC)

The VCL is part of Delphi, aka Object Pascal. It's not Component Pascal. The root of Delphi's inheritance hierarchy is indeed TObject.Barry Kelly (talk) 17:21, 21 February 2008 (UTC)
The vcl though has its own rootclass: Tcomponent which indeed is derived of Tobject. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 19:52, 5 May 2009 (UTC)

.NET Modeled after VCL[edit]

The last claim on this page seems extremely dubious to me, I don't know where it came from, I'd like to see a reference. .NET is much closer to java than VCL, but correct me if I"m wrong. —Preceding unsigned comment added by D2brothe (talkcontribs) 18:03, 18 February 2009 (UTC) Think of Winforms and Anders Heijlsberg. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 15:02, 7 February 2011 (UTC)
