Add-in Express™ for Office and VCL

Product Logo
Add-in Express is the first visual tool for writing Office add-ins, smart tags and real-time data servers in Delphi. It completely supports these technologies and makes them very comfortable for programming extensions for all available Microsoft Office versions from 2000 to Office 2013 (x86 and x64).

Using Add-in Express you can create professional application-level extensions without coding their GUI. Use visual designers, RAD modules and components to build your own toolbars, menus, ribbons, form regions, task panes and keyboard shortcuts for all Microsoft Office applications, including Outlook, Word, Excel, Visio, Access, PowerPoint, MapPoint, FrontPage, InfoPath, Project and Publisher.

All available Office versions, from 2000 to 2013, and all Office suites, from Student to Enterprise, are supported transparently. Add-in Express VCL is developed in Delphi and directly supports Delphi 7 - XE7 as well as Turbo Delphi Professional.

Key Benefits:

Develop all kinds of Office extensions. Add-in Express is completely based on the Office extensibility technology and enables you to develop all kinds of Office extensions including COM add-ins, smart tags, Excel RTD servers and Automation add-ins.

Build one extension for all Office versions and suites. You take advantage of the Add-in Express version-neutral core and build one extension that works in all available Office versions across 2000 through 2013 and Suites, from Student to Enterprise.

Visual designers instead of coding. You use visual designers to customize Office menus, toolbars, ribbons, task panes, forms, windows, regions, option and property pages, to add custom and customize built-in toolbars, main and context menus for all Microsoft Office 2000 - 2013 applications.

Effective project architecture. Add-in Express generates ready-to-use solution templates that make your Office solutions compact, fast secure and easily deployable.
