Question:
How do I make changes to the VCL code?

Answer:
Note: Custom changes to the vcl are not supported by Borland 
or Borland Developer Support. 

-But if you choose to do so...

VCL source code changes should never be made to the interface section of 
a unit. VCL source code changes should only be made to the implimentation
section.

The safest way to make changes to the VCL is to create a new
directory called "patched". Copy the VCL file you want to change
to the new directory. Make your changes (with comments) to the
copied file. Next, add the path to your patched directory to
the beginning of your library path. Restart Delphi/C++ Builder,
and rebuild your project.

The library path setting can be found off the main menu of:

Delphi 1 : Options | Environment | Library
Delphi 2 : Tools | Options | Library
Delphi 3 :  Tools | Environment Options | Library
C++ Builder : Options | Environment | Library
