Async Professional is a collection of native Visual Component Library (VCL) components that provide serial communication facilities for programs created with Borland Delphi and C++Builder. It provides optimized components that are fully integrated with Delphi, compile directly into your EXE files, and include complete source code. Async Professional (APRO) provides a wide range of communication components, including:
As Async Professional has matured through the years, several components have become obsolete, or have been replaced by components with greater functionality. Some of these components have been deprecated to allow APRO to evolve, while still maintaining some degree of backwards compatibility.
Previous version of APRO have moved the deprecated components to a separate tab on the component palette, this version of APRO has deprecated even that. The deprecated components are installed on your installation destination folder in the \Bonus folder. The units in this folder contain the component source for several components that can be installed in your palette.
We do not plan to make any enhancements to these components, and technical support for these products will have a very low priority. These components may be completely removed from future versions of APRO. In short, we highly recommend that you do not use these components for new development.
The following components are now deprecated:
Each of the units containing installable deprecated components are duplications of the distributed 3.0x source files. To install these components, you may have to add the registrations methods, or add the units to a custom package.
Documentation for the deprecated components is included in the APRODEP.HLP file, installed in the \Bonus folder.
