Need Cast?
Hi Tom, You don't mention the type of your array, nor if your code produces any errors. The solution may be as simple as casting your array items to TPanel: if TPanel(ArPnl [x,y]).color = clPurple then (the array is called Arpnl),   TPanel(ArPnl [x,y]).color := clTeal;

4. The Case for Delphi (On the Desktop)

In 1995 Borland revolutionized the world of software development when they introduced Delphi.

It had the distinction of being the first integrated development environment (IDE) featuring a fully object-oriented language and a blazing-fast compiler that produced highly optimized, native Intel machine code. Programs written in Delphi were among the fastest in existence – and still are.

After all these years, is Delphi still relevant?

You bet it is! (And, in many cases, it is still your best bet.)

Here's why...

5. Where Does Your Data Belong?

Back in the wild and wooly days of C/PM, DOS, and early versions of Windows, we programmers could store our data pretty much anywhere. It might not have been a good idea, but we could get away with it.

Things have changed drastically!!

If your program stores data, you need to know where it belongs, and that varies quite a bit from one version of Windows to others.

Read on to find out where your data belongs.

Off-shoring: You CAN fight back!
Are you fed up with calling a company and finding yourself speaking to somebody in a foreign country?  I am, and I've just learned of an effective way to fight back, help return jobs to America, and keep them here. The best part? We don't have to wait for government to do a thing.

2. Windows 7 Trials and Triumphs

This begins the saga of my personal experiences with Windows 7.

Although Prestwood IT Solutions has Win7 installed on some machines for testing purposes, I wasn't involved in setting any of them up. What follows are my personal experiences setting up a new Win7 machine for my home office, installing the software I need, and resolving the inevitable problems that arise along they way.

3. Windows 7, Delphi 7 and Political Correctness

With my installation of Win7 complete, I moved on to installing my favorite software. Delphi 7 was high on my list but, when I went to install it, Win7 went all "politically correct" on me.

This post is about how I dealt with the problem.

4. Windows 7: Data Where You Want It

As with XP and Vista, Windows 7 creates a handful of folders intended to hold your various documents, music, videos, etc.

By default, these folders are placed on the machine's C: drive.

Depending on your ideas of where such data belongs, you may want these folders located somewhere other than the C: drive; I certainly did.

This is about how to do that.

5. Failed Hard Drives and RAID If you've used computers for more than a few years, you know that you don't wonder IF a hard drive will fail - you wonder WHEN. It just happened to me - again. But this time it looks like the results will be pretty painless. The reasons? * RAID Level 1 * Superb Hard Drive manufacturer warranty support
