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;

Calendar VCL with multiple date display

I have written a little programs that keeps information on relatives and friends and I would like to show on the current month's calendar all the dates on which birthdays may fall.

 

Is there a free Calendar component  for Delphi 7 (or upwards) that allows for the display of multiple dates.

I can't promise that such a calendar component is in there, but have you investigated Project Jedi? http://www.delphi-jedi.org/

Daniel Kram
Existing Member Intro
I found Prestwood several years ago but I never introduced myself. My name is Daniel and I've been coding in Delphi on and off, but mostly on, since 1997. At the time, COBOL and BASIC was what I was coding in a client-server environment, before most people even knew what nTier architecture meant. Heck I didn't know, but was doing it. Someone in another department came up to me, presumably after seeking permission from my manager, and asked if I knew Delphi. I said, knew what? Having never heard of Delphi I said no, but was anxious to do something new, so I was transferred to the other department. I didn't what the future was for Delphi and it wasn't to be a .Net, however, Delphi has found me and paid me well over the past decade point five. Take care and talk to you later.

Welcome
Hi Daniel, I've seen some of your posts before, but thanks for the intro.  My experience isn't unlike yours. Before Delphi, I was coding mostly in C and C++; also client-server systems. I attended a show in San Francisco where Borland was handing out pre-release disks of Delphi 1. I installed it and started playing.  I wasn't eager to learn a new language, but once I saw the power of Delphi's RAD environment, and OOP without pointers galore, I never looked. Seriously. I haven't written a line of C or C++ since. Delphi's been very good to me. Times change, though, and we're getting more and more calls for Web applications, so I'm now deep into Visual Studio and .NET. There's much to like about this newer technology, but Delphi still feels like "home." Wes

First Time Delphi Developer
anas, What Daniel Kram has described is a very sophisticated system or "framework" build with; or "on top of" Delphi. His is a generous offer and  It may, or may not, be useful to you. You mentioned that you are a "first time" Delphi programmer.  We all were at one time or another. Now, I can almost promise you that, even if you had all the code to Daniel's product, you'd have trouble making the most of it before you have better developed your foundation Delphi skills.  I recommend starting at the beginning and working through the tutorials that come with Delphi. Also browse the web for "starter" projects.

Need BDE replacement
Am using CodeGear 2007 Win32 with dBase, ACE Reporter, Woll2Woll, JEDI components; therefore I have a lot of TTables and TQueries throughout my program. My applciation runs on a 2003 server with XP workstations. The response time to access data (retrieve, post, do SQLs) is horrible. The users are demanding something better. But I don't know what is better. And I don't know what the ramfications are in changing to something better. I sincerely hope that someone can give me recommendations as well as address the difficulty in changing to another database. Thank you so much, Charlie

Good Catch Dan
Good catch, Dan. Just my two cents, but after decades in this business, I've formed a habit that saves me a lot of grief.  I do not put spaces in the names of anything:
  • Not in folder names,
  • Not in database table names, and
  • Not in database column names.
  • I know, spaces are "legal" in these places, in many contexts. But spaces  get you in trouble in some places or, at the very least, force you to quote the names of things in various contexts. This is why God created two things: 1: CamelCaseSpellingOfEntityNames, and 2: The_somewhat_uglier_but_still_effective_underscore_character

    Possible starting point
    I have not tested this idea, but it can't hurt to try: Does your application's main form have an OnCloseQuery event handler already defined? If not, create one. And if you already have one add code that'll pop up a message dialog that simply says "Somebody is trying to close me." With that in place, run your app, then shut down the OS without first shutting down your application. If your message dialog displays, you now have a place where you can respond to an external shut-down message.

    Hi Larry, Thanks for the great post putting some meat on the bones of my suggestions. There's nothing like good sample code to get one started. I wanted to post some, but time didn't permit. Glad you did.
