Clever Internet Suite 8.4 D7-XE10.2 Full Source | 5 Mb
Clever Internet Suite VCL represents 100% Delphi VCL components for Delphi / C++Builder, with no external dependencies. RAD Studio XE8, Windows 98, XP, Windows 7 and Windows 8 & 10 support (Win32 and x64 platforms). In the new version 8.1 we have implemented a set of new components, added new features and fixed existing problems. Starting from version 8.0 the library is splitted on design-time and run-time packages. This allows you to use the components in RAD Studio VCL form designer for both 32-bit and 64-bit application platforms. The socket components structure was changed in order to implement new SSH (Secure Shell) encryption. New properties and methods have been added. Some existing properties, methods and events have been renamed or deleted in order to achieve better usability and clear Clever Internet Suite structure.

The progress bar functionality is introduced by two components: ProgressBar and ProgressBarDC. The ProgressBar represents fully-functional progress indicator that can be used together with any component (as well as with any third-party components). The ProgressBarDC is used by the Downloader/Uploader and MultiDownloader/MultiUploader components for displaying of file transferring progress information;
ProgressBar – new Windows 7 themes were added;
SMimeMessage – the OnGetCertificate event was replaced with two new events for both signing and ecrypting processes: OnGetSigningCertificate and OnGetEncryptionCertificate;
