Chilkat Delphi Quick Start Tutorial
This tutorial demonstrates how to get started with using Chilkat ActiveX components in Delphi. For specific examples, please click on one of the links in the left rail of this page.
This quick-start tutorial shows how to use the Chilkat Mail ActiveX in Delphi 7 to send an email.
Download the Chilkat Mail ActiveX and Install
For this step, you will download the Chilkat Mail ActiveX, install it on your system, and then install it in the Delphi 7 IDE. Click on the link below to download and install the Chilkat Mail ActiveX.
Import the Chilkat Mail ActiveX into the Delphi IDE
A. Start the Delphi 7 IDE and create a new project. In the Delphi 7 IDE menu, select "Component-->Import ActiveX Control.." as shown below:
B. Select the "Chilkat Mail" ActiveX and click "Install...".
C. Install it into dclusr.dpk by clicking OK.
D. Rebuild the package by clicking Yes.
E. You will receive this message telling you that the component palette has been updated as a result of rebuilding the package. (Which is good!)
F. Exit the dclusr project and click Yes when it prompts you to save the changes. Click on the ActiveX component palette tab to see the Chilkat MailMan icon. The orange icon with an "m" is the ChilkatMailMan object which can be dropped onto a Delphi form.
G. You are now ready to begin programming with the Chilkat Mail ActiveX. The other Chilkat ActiveX components can be added to Delphi using the same procedure. You do not need to repeat this procedure for each new Delphi project because the Chilkat ActiveX is installed in the Delphi IDE and is automatically available when new projects are created.
