Viewing VCL units on Delphi

Viewing VCL units on Delphi

Viewing VCL units on Delphi

Hi there,
I'm programming in Delphi using the CodeGear RAD studio, and I've just learnt the basics of this language. I've just been practicing making VCL Application Forms, with VCL features such as buttons, scroll bars, etc. From what I understand these are VCL components, and there is a hierarchy involved to define these classes, such as:
TObject, TControls, TButtons.
Apparently they are all defined in unit files such as:
System, Classes, Controls, etc

In Codegear RAD Studio I can open and edit the unit files that I have created, such as Unit1 for Project1, but how can I open the unit files such as System, Classes, Controls?

I appreciate your help

Many thanks


RE: Viewing VCL units on Delphi

1. Delphi questions belong here: forum102: CodeGear (Borland): Delphi

2. In most (but not all cases) source can be found within the install directory of the environment.

Measurement is not management.
