Adding Win32 shell functionality including directory listings,popup menu's and file images is usually enough to make a typical delphi programmer cry. Normally the process is difficult and time consuming. However, JAM controls v2.4 has changed this programming task from one of great difficulty to as simple as putting a listview on your form!

The JAM ShellBrowser Components v2.4 gives developers extremely easy access to the windows 32 functionality, including 3 major components and 3 other additional access components. With this component set developers are able to whip up programs similar to Microsoft Windows Explorer in only a few clicks of the mouse button. The Shellbrowser components also include OLE dragging and dropping, context menu, properties page, associated file icons and of course, more if your willing to look through its more then ample help documentation.

If you are considering programming your own Win32 shell functionality into your Delphi programs, think again for $39.00 the JAM Shellbrowser components will save you a lot of frustrating hours in front of your IDE. In my humble opinion this component set is a must for anyone making a professional software package.
