Hi,

I am proficient to about beginner level of C++ language, are there any tutorials or books on the latest version of C++ builder or is there only the documentation to work through?

Many thanks.

"I am proficient to about beginner level of C++ language" therefore the links you suggested I am already working through, I was more looking for tutorials and such aimed at the actual C++ builder IDE itself.

I suggest that you learn C++ 11 or greater which will require RadStudio XE10 Seattle (or some other compiler). The language has changed appreciably since the older versions, not to mention that the old Borland compiler can occasionally malfunction.

Again, I am mainly looking for tutorials specific to the dynamics of the C++ builder software itself?

C++Builder's 64bit Windows compiler, and 32bit iOS and Android compilers,
all support C++11 and have been since they were first introduced (in XE3,
XE4, and XE6, respectively). RADStudio 10 Seattle is when a new 32bit C++11
compiler was introduced.

In addition to the official documentation links posted by Remy, there is also a lot of quite well-written educational material available here:

http://www.functionx.com/cppbcb/index.htm

It may have been written for much earlier versions of BCB but I think that most of this is still valid and perhaps a good introduction to how the VCL components work if you have come from using C++ in a very different environment.

Although very outdated, I still recommend reading "C++ Buillder 5/6 Developers Guide" from Hollingworth for newbies. Many topics are still valid for standard VCL usage.

It really depends on what you are using C++ Builder to do.

If you are doing console apps, then the IDE works like any other, you create the headers and sources and build.

If you are using it to create VCL programs, then you would use the tutorials on the Embarcadero website: http://docwiki.embarcadero.com/ You will see the section for C++ Builder which includes Topics, Library Ref, Code Examples, etc.

This is the way I learned the basics. The library documentation is not super intuitive so you'll read the it many many times before it finally starts to click. But if you do the demos and explore the various concepts on using the IDE, it will start to click.

TLabel as with any component has its members accessible in the IDE through the Object Inspector. Likewise, you can call methods and access members through your code. Certain things are unique to particular libraries. Like setting a background color for a TLabel. There is not a "backgound" color per se for this component in the object inspector, but you can find examples out there for creating a color background for a label.

One thing I find super useful is letting the IDE give you hints, so if you type Label1-> leaving the cursor at the pointer, the IDE will popup a menu with methods available to the component.

It just takes time to take the time to learn the environment, component libraries and IDE specifics.

While I know C/C++, I'm coming from a Java background using Netbeans and Swing. I've had quite a time transitioning to the VLC/FMX libraries too, but just as it took several years to become proficient using Swing, I expect it will take time to learn VLC/FMX.

Good luck, feel free to start a correspondence with me as you wish. I'm still learning too...

The source material for tutorials seems to be spread all over the place.
Can someone point me to the definitive source for http://www.trainingintambaram.in/web-designing-training-in-chennai.html | http://www.traininginsholinganallur.in/php-training-in-chennai.html
Thanks in advance.

I know it's fairly old, but this book: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Charlie-Calverts-Borland-Builder-Unleashed/dp/0672312654/ref=sr_1_2?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1463741786&sr=1-2 is quite useful in showing how some of the C++Builder programs can go together.

Richard.

I'm going to throw this out here, even though it's not exactly what you're looking for... but sooner, or later, you'll need some Delphi education. Personally, I seldom use it directly, but in fact, looking into most any component library, 3rd part component, or various pieces provided by the Embarcadero C++ products will have you sitting in front of Delphi sooner or later.

Charlie Calvert's Delphi 4 Unleashed, this ancient text from 1998 is still applicable.
Delphi 6 Developer's Guide was quite helpful.
..and there's a plethora of other books and online tutorials.

It will behoove you to at least look at some unit headers or .pas files and become familiar with the program unit structure and how it plays into C++.
