  • 3. TTreeView - inplace editor key problem
    The inplace editor of a TTreeView does not receive/process all keybord messages such as DEL, ENTER, ESC while it is active. Instead, those messages are sent to other components (here: DEL to the TreeView directly, because I implemented an OnKeyDown method for deleting nodes from it / ESC is sent to the Cancel button of the form / ENTER is not sent anywhere but it also does not lead to the effect, that the inplace editor is closed). All measures to fix this problem, such as an implementation of SetActiveWindow(h_TvEdit); // h_TvEdit is the hanlde of the inplace editor SetFocus(NULL); ActiveControl = NULL; at the end of the OnEditing method do not solve the problem. Also playing around with the form KeyPreviw = true/false fails. So, what can I do? Thanks, Uli.
  • 4. Screen updating problem
    Hi all, I have a screen updating problem when loading large amount of input data. I use OpenDialog-component and read file using TStringlist. This is part of my reading funtion HWND FormHandle=Screen->ActiveForm->Handle; LockWindowUpdate(FormHandle); TStringList *Rows = new TStringList; Rows->LoadFromFile(filename); // // processing data...takes time // LockWindowUpdate( NULL ); delete Rivit; Problem is that screen components are compleatly cray and white while processing data. Is there some better way to "freese" form (than LockWindowUpdate which does not seem to work properly) to prevent this kind of behaviour? Pauli
  • 5. bordbk access violation
    Hi, I'm writing a program to use borlands DB components. I compiled and ran one of the examples, called fish facts. It worked fine one time, however, after closing the iDE and running it again it seems that the IDE is messed up. When trying to run it again I get AV in coreide60.bpl. Read of address 00000000B4 WHen clicking OK I get AV in VCL60.bpl When trying to close down the IDE I get an AV in bordbk61.dll, Read of address 5438A7A0. I suspect the "culprit" is the bordbk61 but I'm not sure? Any ideas how to get things back on track. Maybe I have to reinstall the IDE? cheers tk

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.

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
