Free Windows 10 Style For Delphi XE8 Firemonkey On Windows

Delphi XE8 Firemonkey Windows 10 StyleDeveloper Sarina DuPont from Embarcadero has a blog post up showcasing a new Windows 10 style for Delphi XE8. One of the great things about Firemonkey is it’s ability to deploy the platform style to each of the supported platforms (Android, IOS, OSX, and Windows) and this brings that support to the Windows 10 platform. On the other hand you can use premium styles to create a universal look for your app across all four platforms. The Windows 10 style is originally for VCL but if you load it up in the Bitmap Style Designer you can save it out to a Firemonkey style file. Once it is a Firemonkey style you can load it up into a TStyleBook or open it in the Firemonkey Style Designer if needed. The window chrome in Windows 10 is slightly different from previous versions so this gives you that window chrome in your Firemonkey apps in addition to the other UI changes. Having this style lets you get a head start on making sure that your Firemonkey app looks and works correctly on Windows 10. Marco Cantu also has a blog post up where he talks about Windows 10 support in Delphi XE8. You should also be able to use this style in Appmethod and C++Builder.
