RichViewActions is a set of actions for Delphi, C++Builder and Lazarus allowing you to create a user interface for a TRichView/ScaleRichView editor. Actions can be assigned to buttons, menu items, toolbars (you can use standard VCL/LCL classes or your favorite third-party components if they support actions).
Actions require no programming – just add a new action in the action manager, assign it to a component, and it will do all the work automatically.
RichViewActions support Windows themes and Delphi XE2+ visual styles, including dark themes and styles.
Dialog windows in RichViewActions support high DPI screen modes.
