...hide less used pages in the components palette?Author: Eduardo Resek
if your Delphi pallete is crowded of pages, making it difficult for you
to get to the desired page, you can manage to hide the less used pages
without uninstalling (!!) the Components therein.Thus you can still Open
older projects that make use of these hidden Components without any
errors.to accomplish these, Open regedit.exe, go to
where X is your Delphi version.Suppose you want to hide the Servers page,
1.Close all runnung instances of Delphi.
2.Create a new string (Right Click on the Right pane and
choose new - > string), type in Servers.Hidden.
3.Go to the Servers string, Double Click it, Copy the contents into
4.Go back to the newly created Servers.Hidden, Double Click it and paste
the clipboard content there in.5.Click
ok.That's it.The Next time you Open Delphi, you wont see the Servers page,
but the Components are still installed.
