TMS Advanced Poly List (Delphi XE and C++Builder XE) offer an versatile and flexible architecture to create virtually any possible lists of items for user interfaces. This is seen typically but not limited to the new Office 2010 application menu.
Contrary to most user interface list controls, where a list consists of items of the same type or a collection of items of the same type, the TMS Advanced Poly List components can hold polymorph items. All items just need to descend from the base class TCustomItem and any inherited items can be added.
TMS Advanced Poly List components come with a large set of prebuilt list items but custom item classes can be added by either descending of the TCustomItem base class or any of the classes already provided. There are item classes to show as list section item, text item with HTML formatting, text item with buttons, item with expand or collaps behaviour, item with image and many more. Items can be added in the polymorph lists either at design time, with a rich design time editor and at runtime via code.
