How To Make Splash Screens, Icons, Bind Data And More In C++

pexels daria shevtsova 1560932

Hello C++ App Developers,

Professional applications have great Icons and Splash Screens. They catch the user’s eye and help add to an overall impression of quality and attention to detail. Today we link to a couple of really great articles on how to create and add icons and splash screens to give that extra polish to your work.

Static libraries are a good way to develop and distribute professional functionality for developers, teams or team groups. You can manage your developer teams to develop different static libraries for your main app so you can spread the workload to different groups. When it’s time to build the main app you pull together the different libraries and methods or functions contained in them. Libraries make code more testable and help isolate functionality to avoid unwanted dependencies.

Data connections in very large applications can be hard to manage. Data Bindings help make it easier to manage data connections with the LiveBindings designer. In both VCL and FMX apps, you can easily connect your database components like FireDAC and MyDAC to a database like InterBase, PostgreSQL, MySQL and MSSQL

in the articles below we see how we can manage all of these with C++ Builder in C++ programming.

If you are new to RAD Studio, we think these posts may help you much as a rapid introduction to programming in C++ and C++ IDE if you’re a beginner, all the way to the most robust, modern, and latest techniques for those more experienced with the language. For those who are perhaps wanting to expand their knowledge with the most up-to-date features, routines, and methodologies this is a great little boost (pun intended) to your C++ knowledge. The new RAD Studio 11C++ Builder 11, Delphi 11 are released with great new features and according to our tests, most of the examples of LearnCPlusPlus.org are working well with the latest RADS 11.
