  • TMiTeC_SystemInfo: This component encapsulates most of MSICS components into one interface. Key properties are shown below. Using those properties, we can easily get the respective component properties. e.g consider CPU property has its own properties such as CPU architecture, Brand, CPU count, etc. Using this simple component you can access the entire system information quickly. Alternatively, we can access these components individually.
  • TButton to open and save the system information to a file.
  • TListView, to populate the collected system information in a list view.

Implementation Details:

  • An instance is created SI of TMiTeC_SystemInfo. Using SI properties Machine, Memory, CPU, Graphics, OS, the respective values were added to the List view.

  • Save the System information into a custom file format .cff by choosing the option Encrypt/Compress/Encrypt And Compress. The Stream is encrypted/Decrypted/Compressed/Decompressed using the following TCodeStreamProcedure type procedures. SaveToStorage is used to save the system information into the file.
  • Later it can be loaded from the file using LoadFromStorage procedure and populated using the load button. TMiTeC_SystemInfo also has events to Read/Write header to the custom file.
