    delphi in HTML?


    Hi,
    i am new to Delphi and hence need a couple of clarifications:
    1. I am creating a GUI where i need to design my own customized dialog boxes, popup menus etc.
    someone suggested me that Delphi is ideal for this GUI. is it easy to create GUI in Delphi?

    2. the most important question i have:
    the GUI that i develop will have to be embedded in a HTML/JavaScript page. So if i use delphi to create the GUI, can i later embed it into a HTML file.
    if it is not possible, can u suggest me the software using which i can create my own GUI and embed into HTML page.
    Thanks in advance

    1. Yes, very easy
    2. You could always write it as an Active X object and embed that into the webpage. Delphi has a wizard to create ActiveForms real easily. See http://delphi.about.com/library/weekly/aa042099.htm for a brief tutorial.

    Hi,
    Thank you for the quick reply. it was indeed pleasing for me to see that i can design the GUI in Delphi and later embed it into HTML.
    can you give the site from where i can download a trial version of the Delphi software and try out the GUI design?
