How to use IntraWeb Charts on a IntrawWeb App

I am using C++Builder XE4 with no Delphi.

I installed the trial version of the TMS IntraWeb Charts. When I create a new IntraWeb application the ChartsView components disappear from the component pallet. So I am not able to use the TMS IntraWeb Charts with a IntraWeb Application. The TMS IntraWeb Charts seem to only work on VCL Forms. Can you explain how to use the TMS IntaWeb Charts on IntraWeb Application.




The IntraWeb charts are installed with a separate package (IW14TMSChartDXE4.dpk).
Please see install.txt (included with the TMS Advanced Charts download) for further instructions.
These are the instructions to install TMS IntraWeb charts using msbuild:

 Installing TMS IntraWeb Chart for IntraWeb 12 / IntraWeb 14



1) Open a COMMAND prompt in Windows in folder where software is installed

2) Set build variables by executing following .BAT files

   for RAD Studio 2009:
   "c:\Program Files (x86)\CodeGear\RAD Studio\6.0\bin\rsvars.bat"
   for RAD Studio 2010:
   "c:\Program Files (x86)\Embarcadero\RAD Studio\7.0\bin\rsvars.bat"

   for RAD Studio XE:
   "c:\Program Files (x86)\Embarcadero\RAD Studio\8.0\bin\rsvars.bat"

   for RAD Studio XE2:
   "c:\Program Files (x86)\Embarcadero\RAD Studio\9.0\bin\rsvars.bat"
   for RAD Studio XE3:
   "c:\Program Files (x86)\Embarcadero\RAD Studio\10.0\bin\rsvars.bat"

   for RAD Studio XE4:
   "c:\Program Files (x86)\Embarcadero\RAD Studio\11.0\bin\rsvars.bat"

3) Set correct include file

   IntraWeb 12.0.x: Rename to TMSDEFS.INC 
   IntraWeb 12.1.x: Rename to TMSDEFS.INC 
   IntraWeb 12.2.x: Rename to TMSDEFS.INC
   IntraWeb 14.0.x: Rename to TMSDEFS.INC
4) Build package files by executing MSBUILD:

   Using following suffixes for package files depending on RAD Studio version:

   RAD Studio 2009: xx -> 2009
   RAD Studio 2010: xx -> 2010
   RAD Studio XE: xx -> 2011
   RAD Studio XE2: xx -> XE2
   RAD Studio XE3: xx -> XE3
   RAD Studio XE4: xx -> XE4

   IntraWeb 12.x.x / RAD Studio 2009 - XE4

   msbuild IW12TMSChartDxx.dproj

   IntraWeb 14.0.0 / RAD Studio XE3 - XE4

   msbuild IW14TMSChartDxx.dproj

   IntraWeb 14.0.x / RAD Studio 2009 - XE2

   msbuild IW14TMSChartDxx.dpk

   IntraWeb 14.0.x / RAD Studio XE3 - XE4

   msbuild IW14TMSChartDxxUPD.dproj

5) Install Packages in the IDE

   From the IDE select "Component>Install Packages...>Add..."
   and add each of the .BPL files that were generated by executing msbuild in step 4)

   BPL file locations:

   RAD Studio 2009: 
   C:\Users\Public\Documents\RAD Studio\6.0\Bpl

   RAD Studio 2010: 
   C:\Users\Public\Documents\RAD Studio\7.0\Bpl

   RAD Studio XE: 
   C:\Users\Public\Documents\RAD Studio\8.0\Bpl

   RAD Studio XE2: 
   C:\Users\Public\Documents\RAD Studio\9.0\Bpl

   RAD Studio XE3: 
   C:\Users\Public\Documents\RAD Studio\10.0\Bpl

   RAD Studio XE4: 
   C:\Users\Public\Documents\RAD Studio\11.0\Bpl

I am using C++Builder XE4 without Delphi


My Version of IntraWeb Says:

Edition: Intraweb Bundled Edition for RAD Studio XE3 Pro

IntraWeb Version 14.0.0

Build Date May 16, 2012


I have the registered TMS Component Pack Installed


I have read the advchartsetup install.txt and


I have run the install program for the IntrWeb Trial from the file


This setup installed into the three folders listed below:


C:\Program Files (x86)\tmssoftware\AdvChart RSXE4


C:\Users\Public\Documents\tmssoftware\TAdvChart Demo


I have followed the steps you listed above but run into an error for missing project file on step 3.


For step 3 here is what I do:

I set the Command Prompt directory to C:\Program Files (x86)\tmssoftware\AdvChart RSXE4


I run the command MSBUILD IW14TMSChartDXE4.dpk and I get the error MSB1009: Project files does not exist.


I then test a variety of other commands with the same result.





Do you have any suggestions?



Can you please make sure you are starting the msbuild command from the folder where the IW14TMSChartDXE4.dpk package file is located?

I do not have a file named IW14TMSChartDXE4.dpk on my computer. The TMS AdvCharts installation only installed *.res files with that file name. Below is the xe4 file that I have in the folder C:\Program Files (x86)\tmssoftware\AdvChart RSXE4


I also have XE3 files



I am trying to install the IntraWeb AdvCharts Trial. I don't have the registered version.

Please note that for the trial version of the TMS IntraWeb Charts the IntraWeb package files are located in a separate folder in "C:\Users\Public\Documents\tmssoftware".

I have switched the Command Prompt to the directory listed below and run the two MSBUID commands. I still get the MSB1009 error Project File Does Not Exist. Below I have listed the files in this folder. I have used the program Everything.exe to search my complete hard drive for the files IW14TMSChartDXE4.dpk and IW14TMSChartDXE4UPD.dpk and they are not on my hard drive. I can not do the MSBUILD unless I have these files. Maybe there is a different install program?

msbuild IW14TMSChartDXE4.dpk

msbuild IW14TMSChartDXE4UPD.dpk











Did you set the Build variables as explained in one of the previous posts?

Yes I set the Build variables. There just appears to be a missing file which prevents the MSBuild. I believe the 30 day trial for the Intraweb charts is over so I have given up for now. I will try to install it again on a different computer at a later date.

trial version has no time limitation.

Please note that there was a typo in the post with install instructions (which has now been corrected).

The correct msbuild commands are as indicated here:

msbuild IW14TMSChartDXE4.dproj
msbuild IW14TMSChartDXE4UPD.dproj
