Detail of an Alpha Blended form

In this first of two articles, I will demonstrate how to easily create an alpha blended translucent splash screen using Delphi.

Although I use Delphi 2007 and PhotoShop here, the techniques apply equally well to other versions of Delphi and other image editing tools.

VersionInfo for Delphi

The VersionInfo library basically just wraps the Win32 GetFileVersionInfo (and related) API functions. The library makes it very easy to read values from the Version Info resource of Windows executables and DLLs.

Features

  • Reads all integer version info values:
    File version, product version, File flags, OS, file type, file sub-type and file date.
  • Reads any named version info string value such as:
    Product Name, Product Version, Company, Copyright, etc.
  • Supports languages, character sets and translations.
  • Optionally extends the TApplication class with a version info property.
