ColorButton unit with TColorButton saved for posterity as got hi-jacked.

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/07/18

Hopefully my blog will last longer than the original articles.

Last year, I noticed yet another path into bit rot: [WayBack] The title reads “Source Code for the TColorButton Delphi Component”… I must be going blind because I can’t find it – Thomas Mueller (dummzeuch) – Google+

In this case, got redirected via to [WayBack which is a copy of the original article failing to preserve the download links of the original source code.

It doesn’t help that the original source download at also redirects to a generic catch all of [WayBackDelphi Programming where also redirects to.

In other words: got hi-jacked.

So here are some links to various forms of that source code:
