Virtual Treeview is a Delphi treeview control built from ground up. Many years of development made it one of the most flexible and advanced tree controls available today. Virtual Treeview starts off with the claim to improve many aspects of existing solutions and introduces some new technologies and principles which were not available before.
I don't use C++ Builder and my experience with it is very limited. This makes it difficult to take care about bugs that are reported in C++ Builder and to maintain the C++ Builder packages. I would be great if someone would volunteer to do this. Please contact me at [email protected].
An experimental FireMonkey port can be found here: livius2/Virtual-TreeView

We currently focus on reducing the number of reported bugs and getting Virtual Treeview stable. Feature Requests will most likely not processed at the moment.

Please mark feature requests with the flag "Enhancement".
