Finding work in a down market
As a result of an extended discussion in the H1B thread, I suggested that we start a new topic on brainstorming ideas for finding work in the current market. This includes job hunting tips as well as ideas for software products to develop or software services to offer., , The idea is to have everyone throw out as many ideas as possible with the intention that those who are out of work grab any useful ones and use them to get a job, get a contract with a user, or start developing a product to sell. Any of these are better than sitting by the phone waiting for it to ring!, , So, everyone, if you have any ideas that you are willing to share, please pitch them in now!

Larry!, , Good suggestion! I'll be sure to pass it on., , Fortunately for us in Sacramento, we have both Citgo and BP stations., , Of course, don't wear a T-shirt with this printed on it in a mall in Albany, NY. You could get arrested... Big Grin!

Re: Field Index
If I recall correctly, this happens when you reference a dataset with an invalid field index or invalid field name:, , qrySomething.Field[15].Value where there is no field 15, , qrySomething.FieldByName('somename').Value where 'somename' is not a valid field name.

Re: Where is my dll located?
The DLL has its own Application object. That Application object has a property, Application.Handle which is the Windows module handle for the DLL., , Use , GetModuleFileName (Application.Handle,Path,Pathsize) to get the path of the DLL. You have to provide a buffer for Path and specify the maximum Pathsize. The path will be stored as a pchar type string in Path., , Check out the Win32 help on GetModuleFileName for details., , Hope this helps.

Multiple Units
Can someone show me how to use multiple units in a project? I've written an app in Delphi 6 and I want to seperate the code to make it easier to edit. But I can't figure out how to use multiple units with only the one form., , Thanks for any help., , Merlin

Merlin,, , Your main form unit makes use of other units by referencing them in a "uses clause". Check the Delphi Help for "uses clause" to get started understanding the relationships among units.

And remember, if the changes you want to make can be made at design time, you can simply open the form in text mode and use the Edit/Replace commands from the toolbar to make the changes to the form. Since the IDE is a two-way operation, any changes you make to the form will be immediately reflected in the code. -Larry Drews
