VCL to BeOS equivalents

This is a preliminary effort to map Borland‘s VCL classes to similar or equivalent Be‘s BeOS classes. The VCL information was obtained from the Delphi 4 and C++Builder 4 help files, whereas the BeOS information came from the Be Book for R4.5.

The following VCL classes have been mapped, so far:

Buttons –
TBitBtn
ColorGrd –
TColorGrid
ComCtrls –
TListItem, TListView, TPageControl, TProgressBar, TTabControl, TTabSheet, TTrackBar,
TTreeView
Controls –
TControl
ExtCtrls –
TShape
Forms –
TForm, TScreen, TScrollBox
Graphics –
TFont, TMetafile
Menus –
TMainMenu, TMenuItem, TPopupMenu
Outline –
TOutline
StdCtrls –
TButton, TCheckBox, TComboBox, TEdit, TGroupBox, TMemo, TRadioButton,
TScrollBar
Windows –
Rect, TPoint
