Code Snippet of the Month

An associative array links a set of unique values (keys) to another set of values (not necessarily unique). In ObjectPAL associative arrays are known as dynamic arrays.

;Button :: pushButton

method pushButton(var eventInfo Event)
myDynArray   DynArray[] String

myDynArray["Last_Name"] = "Spitz"

myDynArray["First_Name"] = "Randy"

Interactive Paradox: Using Data Topic:
Definition of the Month: Project Alias
A project alias, like public aliases, point to a folder. Project aliases are stored in the PDOXWORK.CFG file, which is loaded whenever you change working directories.
Paradox & ObjectPAL Topic:
Download of the Month: Paradox 9 Help & PDF Files

Paradox 9 ships with several very valuable help files. For convenience, you can also download them here.

Paradox Tables Topic:
Resource Link of the Month: Sundial Services International Inc.

Home of ChimneySweep, "the" replacement for Table Repair for those that need to automate the repair of multiple paradox tables. Here at Prestwood Software we have recommended ChimneySweep many times.

Paradox for DOS Topic:

Can I run Paradox for DOS on 64-bit editions of Windows Vista, Windows 7, 8, 10?


No. DOS has been removed. 16-bit programs are not directly supported on 64-bit versions of Windows Vista, Windows 7, 8, or 10. Although 64bit Windows editions come with the Command Prompt for executing DOS commands and creating scripts, it does not run DOS programs.

Recommendation: Download a DOS emulator such as DOSBox.

OPAL: Language Basics Topic:
Tip of the Month

If, in experimentation, you use sleep(), doDefault, or DisableDefault to overcome some odd or misunderstood behavior, do not leave the commands in your code. If using the command didnt seem to make a difference, then take it out. Use commands only when they are called for. One great way to really learn the event model and the power of these and other commands is to experiment with adding them. Remember to take them out, however, if they do not do what you wanted.
