v6.3.1.0 (May 8, 2014)


TMS Scripter

Add the ultimate flexibility and power into your applications with native Pascal or Basic scripting and full IDE (Integrated Development Environment) with visual form designer, object inspector, and more.

Feature overview

Make your applications end-user customizable!

By building scripting support into your applications, you can provide a high degree of configurability, flexibility and automation control in your applications.

  • It allows modification of the application behaviour without needing to update the full application. Just sending a new small script file is sufficient.
  • It allows you to create and debug scripts and forms at runtime in an Delphi-like Integrated Development Environment.
  • End users can add totally new functionality to an application by binding application logic with COM servers through scripting.
  • Different end user specific rules can be put in scripts allowing to maintain a single application for different uses
  • And much more ...
TMS Scripter supports pseudo-compiled scripts, making time critical script routines even faster.

User comments

Sorry to say that I regret about my Scripter purchase. I mean, I regret that I didn't purchase it before ;-) I implemented the routine I needed in my application in less than 4 hours, thanks to the excellent examples in documentation and available features. I'm even "scared" because everything worked in the very first time and every time this happens there is something really wrong "hidden" that only shows up when the application is running at the customer (one of the Murphy's Law). Congratulations.

I fell in love with this great product, it changed my opinion and my vision in programming. I am using it at least 12 hours per day and everyday I understand what a clean code you have used to make it ...thanks a lot.
