  • 1. AQTime reports VCL leak: no call to UninitAllocator
    Testing a bare-bones app (one that simply creates a form), AQTime reports that: InitializeCriticalSection is called, but DeleteCriticalSection is not. I opened $(BCB)\Source\vcl\getmem.inc and set breakpoints in InitAllocator (where InitializeCriticalSection is called) and UninitAllocator (where DeleteCriticalSection is called), and by golly... AQTime is right. UninitAllocator does NOT get called when the program shuts down. I'm using BCB6, Update 4 on Win98. My question is: Does the operating system detect that the critical section is no longer in use when the process shuts down, in which case the failure to call DeleteCriticalSection isn't significant? Also: getmem.inc function Commit calls VirtualAlloc. Where is this memory freed? classes.pas function MakeObjectInstance calls VirtualAlloc. Again, where is the memory freed? There are a few more, but I'm assuming (praying) that these are not really leaks, and that reconfiguring AQTime will prevent them from turning up in my results. Thank you for any help you can provide. Kathleen

  • 4. TRichEdit - chat room format (more detailed)
    sorry for the generic question before. but basically i want to format the TRichEdit control so it looks like the following... JSlavinNU: hello this is all text text text blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah JSlavinNU: here is more text JSlavinNU: more text more text more text more text. where the screen names stand alone on the left and if the text has to wrap back down it aligns itself with the indented text... i've done this before, but have lost the code to repeat it. Again, any help will be greatly appreciated! --- Thank you for your time, Jeff Slavin XXXX@XXXXX.COM

TStringList->LoadFromFile throws exception

Postby mataus » Tue, 17 Jun 2008 08:23:31 GMT

Hello all.

I have problem with TStringList->LoadFromFile().  I have to make a program 
that shows information from text log file.  The file is always opened by a 
second program that keeps writtin .

When i call TStringList->LoadFromFile() i get exception "Cannot open file 
C:\Program Files\Company\event log.txt".  I think this is becuase log file 
is openned, by second program.  But notepad can open the file.

Can anyone help me?

TStrings::LoadFromFile() attempts to open the file with fmShareDenyWrite 
sharing rights specified.  Since your other app already has the file opened 
for writing, such access will always fail while the other app is using the 
file.  To get around it, you will have to use LoadFromStream() instead. 
That way, you can instantiate your own TFileStream with less restrictive 
sharing rights specified, ie:

    TFileStream *Stream = new TFileStream(FileName, fmOpenRead | 
        delete Stream;

That is a lovely example. Thanks Remy.

What is the difference between these two?:

throw new Exception("msg");

throw Exception("msg");

When should I use one vs. the other? 

2.TRegistry->WriteBool() throws exception

Hi all,

I know this might be trivial, but I couldn't locate any post on this with 
search, so I'll have to ask it.

I'm using TRegistry to access the Registry, when I tried to use 
WriteBool(ValName, Value), BCB always give me an exception upon compiling:

Project TCPrinter.exe raised an exception class ERegistryException with 
message 'Failed to set data for 'AutoMode''. Process stopped.

The problem sourced from this block of code:

void __fastcall TForm1::AutoCheckClick(TObject *Sender)
    TRegistry *reg = new TRegistry;
    reg->WriteBool("AutoMode", AutoCheck->Checked);
    delete reg;

AutoCheck is a TCheckBox, AutoMode is the Registry Value Name.

The strange thing is, it's thrown upon compiling, I haven't triggered the 
event yet. I do have a reg->ReadBool() in the constructor, but it never 
caused any problem. I deleted the reg at the end of the constructor, so it's 
not object conflict problem...

Anyone have any idea what's wrong? Thanks in advance. 

3.Can basic_string<>::c_str() throw exceptions?

  Hi all.

  I was wondering. Can the standard basic_string<> c_str()
member function throw any exceptions? Is it perhaps
implementation dependent?

  I tried checking the standard and as far as I can see it is
implementation dependent with no guarantees what so
ever, but I was hoping I may have missed something... :-)

  When the C++ standard does not specify any exception
specifications for some function, nor does it list any
exceptions in the function description. Does that mean
that any exception may be thrown? If that is so, how are
we supposed to prepare for those exceptions in our code
other than 'something happened, I do not know what, but
it was not expected so I'm aborting...'.

  Hope to hear from you soon.

4.TBitmap.LoadFromFile() throws Stream Error?

Hello all, 

I'm new to Delphi 2005, and have a problem I'm having a difficult time

I have an OwnerDraw TListbox  where basically I'm just drawing
thumbnails of .BMP files in a folder. It works fine, except on SOME
files, the TBitmap.LoadFromFile() throws a stream error.

I can't seem to find out why it does it on these particular .BMP
files. Here's a snippet of the very vanilla code...

 with (Control as TListBox).Canvas do
     If Not FileExists(myListbox.Items[Index]) Then Exit;
        if Bitmap<>nil then
          // Bitmap.PixelFormat := pf24bit; //tryed setting this..it
          // didnt help
          Bitmap.LoadFromFile( myListbox.Items[Index] ); 

The BMP files are small...just approx 98x98
I have found that if I open the troublesome .BMP files and reduce the
color depth to 32K and resave, it makes the stream error disappear. Is
there anything I'm doing obviously wrong in the code? Or is it just
the .BMP files were saved 'strangley'?

Those are not plain-text formats.  Well, .doc may be, but only if it is
encoded in RTF formatting.

Probably because those formats have binary data in them that is preventing
LoadFromFile() from parsing the entire file.  LoadFromFile() only works
correctly for plain-text files.

Yes - don't use TStringList for what you are trying to do.  Access the file
