Here's a silly one
When I press a button on my latest amazing application nothing happens (that's not surpising in itself) except that a message flashes across the screen at triple the speed of light [Wow!] , , I would like to know what it is trying to tell me as that may have a bearing why the button does nothing in the first place. Any ideas? Think! , , I suppose it could of course be Angel's mugshot.. Yikes! , rt

Questions, questions
Which takes precedence - the section in the project file where it gives a list of forms to be automatically created at startup or my choice of form creation via the project option selection bit? Think! , , The majority of examples in the online help use "Free" in some context when closing forms, yet hidden away in the depths of the very same online help it also says to use "Release" in preference to "Free" when closing forms as it allows for all actions to finsh before closing. I doubt if I will ever find that particular bit again, but does some clever type know the reasoning\answer? Think!

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

Back to DOS!
I was asked by someone if I could put together a little program which at the press of a button would shut down Windows (and not just go to a DOS window) and then run a true DOS program and then close the system down - although I doubt this last bit., , Naturally I waved the white flag at this, but hoped that someone here may have an inkling of what to do. , , I understand that the DOS program is something to obliterate the windows swop file, so it did'nt take a great deal of brain power to guess that the said computer may have been visiting the likes of naughty Nora's enormous knocker sites Yikes! , , Well, each to his own I suppose, but out of interest could this be done in Delphi? , rt

How to sell a program written by D6 Personal?
I wrote a program by D6 personal. Initially for fun, but now it turns out I may sell it for some money. Does anyone know how much money I need to pay borland if I want sell a program written by D6 per? I'm a student, $1000 pro version is too much for me. I hope I will not need to re-write it by c++. Borland's tools are excellent, but the price is a little high.

QReport Query SQL
Now I will readily admit that I aren't the brightest candle in the shop window when it comes to SQL, so I need help (Im looking at you Mr Wehrly!)., , My report splits into four groups, each group containing a list of items for that group and their current value. I list my data using QRDBEdits and it works fine. However, I would like to exclude any items where the figure is "0.00". I figure to do this I need a QRExpr instead of the QRDBEdit but I dont know how to make it work properly with the SQL code. In delphi, I would write something like this., , if Currency((Query2.Debit - Query2.Credit)) <> 0 then , , but how to do it in Sql???, , Answer this for me and Ill get around to sending Mike my picture for the avatars. Im growing my beard as we speak!

Database Problems
Hello everyone!  I am new to Delphi and I am picking it up really quickly by the way.  My problem is I haven't seen a working Mysql database that worked from examples I have downloaded.  I have gotten a few Access database running with Delphi.  What I can't seem to do however is get a certain recordset.  I can't find no information on pulling a specific recordset with Access/Delphi. Here is what I am trying to do:  when a person logs on to the chatroom server, I want them to have access  to the information they entered in there personal record only? If there is an easier way to do this besides using Access, can someone point me in the right direction please.  I am using Delphi 7. Thanking you all in advance!!!

Yes. Use the GetLogicalDrives function. If a removable drive is removed, it's cooresponding logical drive will be removed., , The function in my first message tells if removable MEDIA is in the drive. This always takes longer because the drive has to spin up.

waiting for video to complete
In my program, when the form first loads, I have a procedure that plays a video file. I want to wait until the file is done playing, then bring up another form. Currently my onActivate procedure looks like this:, , begin, mediaplayer1.play;, ********************************, form1.visible := False;, form2.visible := True;, end;, , The line of (*) is where I think I need to put some kind of a wait command. I have explored the delphi help topics on "mediaplayer.wait", and the "waitfor" command with no luck. , , Any ideas? Thanks in advance!
