How to display custom RCL components at runtime

edited June 2004 in Component Writing
Sorry if this is a frequently asked question, but I have spent 2 hours
researching and I can't find the answer anywhere!

How do I get any custom RCL components to show in the run time designer
(they show correctly at design-time)?!

    Hi Dimitar,

    If your components are showing up correctly at design time, they must be
    registering correctly. Be sure you are including the correct units in the
    "uses" clause of your application and that your library path is updated for
    the new files you created. Try keeping it simple... place a TppReport,
    TppDesigner, and a button on a form, connect all the components up and add
    your new RCL component into the "uses" clause of your app. You might also
    try placing a break point inside the Initialization section of your
    component to be sure the register calls are being executed.
