Tool Palette OpenTools API sample available – MenuPalette

Back in 2007 I wrote an OpenTools add-in for Delphi and C++Builder called MenuPalette. It allowed you to search through all the IDE menu items inside the Tool Palette. You can read the post I made at the time for more details.

In a later version of Delphi, IDE Insight took this same idea much further, so I never bothered updating MenuPalette, although it’s still available for people on older versions. However, recently I’ve had a couple of people ask about the source code. I finally dug it out last night and published it on github, as I thought it might be a useful example of interfacing with the Tool Palette via the OpenTools API. I also updated it to work with the latest version of Delphi, as one of the questions was specifically about doing this in XE2.

Hope it’s useful.
