RE: Change color on form
My ObjectPAL is a bit rusty, but to the best of my memory, here's what I think is going on:
  • Dan's code did not anticipate changing colors back when changing records. To handle that, you'll need to have some code on another event -- IIRC, I think you want the "arrive" method for the object.
  • I think the reason checking the box again on another record doesn't change things back is because the variable "siColor" goes out of scope when the record changes. Declaring that variable in the object's "var" method should insure that it persists, and can be recalled again.
  • Kevin, if you're still struggling with this, I may be able to look up some code at work which does something similar. Post back to let me know if this would be helpful.,

    Cease and Desist: ParadoxCommunity no more!
    According to a post by Tony McGuire to comp.databases.paradox, Corel's lawyers have sent a "cease and desist" letter saying that the use of the domain names ParadoxCommunity.com and ParadoxDay.com will no longer be permitted., So what is it with Corel, that they don't want anybody saying something good about their product and drumming up interest?, Sheesh!

    RE: Bizarre date/time logics
    That QC link now needs to be http://qc.embarcadero.com/wc/qcmain.aspx?d=3820 That report only had two votes, which may be part of the reason it's still not fixed. I added one vote; perhaps others can do the same?,

    Chalnick's "Incremental Search Object&quo
    Is anyone else using Leon Chalnick's "Incremental Search Object" that was included with his "Killer Paradox 5" book? The tool has been the easiest and fastest for searching that I've found to date, but I've discovered that if a filter is set, the tool sometimes disregards the filter or drops it. I've looked at the code and can't figure out where this is happening. Does anybody know a work-around?

    Hi Rick, I was wondering how you were doing. Soiunds like you are on a new treatment that has promise. Glad to hear. Stay in touch when you have energy and good luck with the treatment. Mike

    RE: Chalnick's "Incremental Search Object
    Nope, Mike, and maybe a year after that post, the routine suddenly became slow, slow, slow, on certain computers in our network, and I never did figure out why.  I ended up just writing a different custom lookup tool. You haven't heard much from me because, after over a year of single drug chemotherapy for lymphoma, my blood counts still weren't going back up, so I'm now going through some more intensive multi-drug chemo treatments. The good news is they seem to be knocking out more of the "bad guy" cancer cells, but in the short term it's very fatiguing, and my mental concentration is limited. Hopefully things will be looking up in a few months.,

    Another news article on the acquisition of CodeGear by Embarcadero: http://www.sdtimes.com/content/article.aspx?ArticleID=32238 Sounds like they're very optimistic!
