I doubt that you would easily create a data-aware control from this. From
an IBO standpoint, for development ease, performance and flexibility, I'd
be looking at streaming back and forth directly between TJvRichEdit and a
non-text blob. Native IBO is brilliant at this. You could make some kind
of reusable panel class that works consistently. There might be already
such an example with the JVCL; or you could adapt the demo code.

The sources at the Project JEDI website *are* "unfinished", in the sense
that they are mainly API header translations that are not used alone.

If you want completed controls, download the Jedi-VCL package from
CodeCentral. (It's a bind - but PJ has been waiting for two years for
promised FTP space from Borland). You'll need to link through from to the relevant Sourceforge pages of the JVCL project for
information, and (possibly) the JCL project pages too. JCL (Jedi Code
Library) is a huge package of routines and non-visual classes; many of the
JVCL classes depend on the JCL. Usually the JCL is included with the JVCL
