    CodeGear has a new home!
    For those who haven't been keeping up, some time back Borland "spun off" a separate company named "CodeGear" for its developer tools, also announcing at the time that CodeGear was up for sale. Well, now there's a buyer! CodeGear is being acquired by Embarcadero Technologies, a database tools company. Key people from both companies are excited about this development. While there are no overlapping products, there is a lot of potential for sharing technology between products, and for "bundling"...

    Windows Development Tip
    Recently I've noticed several posts whose answers deal with the Windows 32-bit API (Win32 API). Because Delphi applications are designed to run under Windows, programs interact with Windows using the Win32 API., , Although Borland has done an excellent job of encapsulating a great deal within the VCL, there are many tasks that can only be done with direct calls to the Win32 API. A good example is finding out who the currently logged in user is., , Anyone who develops in Windows, regardless of whether you are using Delphi, C++Builder, Visual Basic, Visual C++, or any other Windows development tool should become familiar with the Win32 API. The more you know about how things are done in windows (and the VCL Source is an excellent resource to use as an example), the easier it will be for you to develop applications where the VCL is simply not enough., , Microsoft provides an excellent resource for the Win32 API known as the Microsoft Developer's Network Library Platform SDK.

    In case anyone hasn't heard, Borland's Developer Tools Group has recently released a new "Turbo" line of products, single language products with nearly all the features of Borland Developer Studio Pro. "Turbo Explorer" is a free download, and allows commercial deployment, with the major restriction being that third party components can't be installed and used at design time (though they can be initialized in code and used at runtime).

    Problem using Delphi 2 with XP (printing issue)
    Previously, I used Delphi 2 with 98 and Me. I've had to use the setprinter command to connect to a ticket printer connected to another workstation printer. Now with XP (especially professional) when you set up a printer on another workstation the name on the printer setting is on . It messes up everything with the setprinter command. The workaround was to set up the printer as a local port and then change the port setup so that "on" portion wouldn't be included. But now that doesn't work anymore. Does anyone has a working solution to this (especially to use the "on" portion of the printer name)? I'm using Delphi 2 with quickreport (version 1 I think). I'm desperate for an answer.

    Wow, Delphi 2. Off hand I don't know the answer so hopefully someone else will chime in with some helpfull info. However, I do have to say that you really do need to upgrade to at least Delphi 6 and Delphi 7 or 2005 is a better choice. Remember, Delphi 2 was NEVER tested with XP as XP was just a glimmer in Bill Gate's eye when D2 was developed.

    hi, does anyone know, how to fix the following, problem?, , I have a Matrox Millennium G550 graphics card and use Borland Delphi 4.0. I have the newest driver and the newest Delphi version. The problem is, that for example the "Start (in engl. i think it should be RUN) - Parameter" - window is so small, that i cant type in some parameters. But the window isnt resizeable. I just can see the register "local" and a button "load". Thats in some other Delphi-Menues too ... , , If i start windows in "Protected Mode (i hope thats the name it uses in engl.) - you know F8 and then "Protected Mode" (for minimal driver-use) - you see the Parameter-Window in full size. (windows then uses the "standard-vga"-graphics-driver). Thats why i think, that the problem is with the Matrox Millennium G550., , Does anyone know how to fix this problem?, , I hope my english is well enough, too be understandable ..., , greets, necron
