TFrameStand TFormStand #TFrameStand and TFormStand components (FMX) Easily use TFrame or TForm descendants in your FireMonkey (FMX) applications to gain visual consistency though the whole user experience and easily add modern looking elements like effects and transitions.

All code and demos tested on Delphi XE8 and Delphi 11.1 Alexandria.

Installation - GetIt!

TFrameStand and TFormStand are available on GetIt (Embarcadero's Package Manager) Link on GetIt website

Installation - Manual

  1. Open “packages\FrameStand_11.groupproj”
  2. Build both contained packages
  3. Install “dclFrameStandPackage_11_280.bpl” design time package
  4. Add “source\” library path for Delphi (repeat this for each platform you need to support)

Installing manually you get the latest updates (beware! :-) )

Main functionalities

  • Use any TFrame/TForm and show it through TFrame/TFormStand to add animations, effects and stands (a common visual layer between the TFrame/TForm and its Parent)
  • Share CommonActions through different UI combinations
  • Responsive frame substitution
  • Take advantage of design time style preview and Fire UI technology through TFormStand
