Sample Projects

To get started, check the sample projects contained in the ShellBrowser component suite. They give an overview on the simple use of the components and illustrate some common scenarios that you might make use of in your own projects. Also some special use cases like the handling of custom columns are covered.


Without ShellBrowser Delphi Components, I would (most probably) not have begun working on my project. Implementing all the complicated functions ShellBrowser covers would simply have taken too much time. Many thanks for the great support. My product would not have been released without the changes to ShellBrowser you implemented and the quick bugfixes! Everything works fast, stable, and just as I designed it.

ShellBrowser Delphi Components are the best VCL Shell tools I have seen including Plasmatech which I used for years but which is no longer being updated. Keep up the good work.

I have recently purchased your Shellbrowser Delphi Components and love them, I was using [other commercial shell components] but yours are streaks ahead, very reasonably priced and excellent documentation too.
