  • 1. Modifying TStringComponent
    I've scoured the newsgroup but haven't found anything similar to this, so here's a question, that I'm hoping someone can help me with. I have a TStringComponentNew that has as one of its features the ability to resize the form on the fly so that it makes the cells fit magically withing the viewable area of the grid (with no scrollbars or anyting of that nature). To do this I simply fire off the WMSIZE event that I've defined. However I would like this event to also be fired off if the user changes the number of columns or rows, but for the life of me I can't figure out what I can do that... Any ideas would be greatly appreciated... John
  • 2. Referencing a component from a component
    I've looked around the various newsgroups and haven't found an answer to this yet, so hopefully, I can get some help here. I have two components, we'll call them CompA and CompB. Now these two components both rely on a third component for their operation and we'll call this SupportC. If I install SupportC, then I can't install either CompA or CompB as they both flag an error during the install process indicating that SupportC already exists. So I remove SupportC and can install CompA or CompB but not both, as when one is installed it will also install SupportC and then the other component fails to install because it flags an error to indicate that SupportC already exists. I'm at a loss here. I know I should be able to do this, but some reason I can't. Any suggestions on this would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
  • 3. Folder location Combobox
    Hello I need a ComboBox control for selecting a folder. Like the one which appears on a typical OpenDialog. I had no luck finding one. Hope you can tell me where to find one, or build one. :) Thank you Jaepil Kim
  • 4. Hiding a published property
    I have a component derived from TComponent and I want to hide the Name property from the Object Inspector. As I understand it, the correct approach is to assign the property a NULL PropertEditor but I'm getting errors. namespace Mycomponent { void __fastcall PACKAGE Register() { TComponentClass classes[1] = {__classid(TMyComponent)}; RegisterComponents("SomePallette", classes, 0); TPropInfo *PropInfo = ::GetPropInfo( __typeinfo(TMyComponent), "Name" ); RegisterPropertyEditor( *(PropInfo->PropType), __classid(TMyComponent), "Name", NULL ); } } The initial error was Call to undefined function 'RegisterPropertyEditor' so I added #include <DesignIntf.hpp> to the header and now I'm getting 2 other linker errors: [Linker Error] Unresolved external '__fastcall Designintf::RegisterPropertyEditor(Typinfo::TTypeInfo *, System::TMetaClass *, const System::AnsiString, System::TMetaClass *)' referenced from C:\...\xxx.OBJ [Linker Fatal Error] Fatal: Could not open c:\...\xxx.bpl (program still running?) I suspect that the second error is the result of the first because the path that it referenced is not where the package resides. Could some one please tell me what I'm doing wrong here? ~ JD

    Dear Sir, for the DataSource->DataSet How can I know it (DataSource->DataSet) is a TIBTable or TTable or TQuery or TIBQuery ? Thank you Emmanuel

Incorrect parameter for custom event handler

Postby Myles Rippenhagen » Wed, 26 Oct 2005 02:43:50 GMT


I have created several custom components and generally have had great 
success with them, but I am currently running into a problem where when I 
double-click on a published custom event (on the "Events" tab of the "Object 
Inspector" in the IDE), the inserted method declaration contains the wrong 
variable name.  The signature matches another, similar custom event, and it 
seems to be picking up the parameter name from this other definition.  I 
have double-checked that I am referencing the correct typedef in the 
definition of my custom component and I didn't see any problem.  I am using 
BCB6 Enterprise on WinXP.  Following are the important bits of the code.

typedef void __fastcall (__closure *BeforePostEvent) (TObject* Sender, bool 
typedef void __fastcall (__closure *OnPutToDatabaseEvent) (TObject* Sender, 
bool &DoDefault);
   OnPutToDatabaseEvent FOnPutToDatabaseEvent;
   __property OnPutToDatabaseEvent OnPutToDatabase = 
{read=FOnPutToDatabaseEvent, write=FOnPutToDatabaseEvent};

When I double-click on the "OnPutToDatabase" event in the IDE, the inserted 
code labels the bool parameter "CanPost" instead of "DoDefault".  It appears 
to just pick up the first typedef with a matching signature instead of using 
the typdef that I specified.

Any suggestions??

That is a long-standing known issue.  The OI matches events by signatures
only, not names.  You have two different events that have the exact same
signature (return value, calling convention, parameter data types, and
parameter ordering).  The OI always generates code using the first event
type that matches the required signature.

That is exactly why you are seeing what you have described.  There is
nothing you can do to prevent the OI from behaving that way.  You will just
have to change the signature of one of your events so that they no longer
match each other.

The OI does not care about typedefs.  It only cares about signatures.

1.Why event handler first parameters are incorrect

I noticed that DataGridView CellValidated() and other event handler first 
parameter is object:


        void Grid_CellValidated(object sender, DataGridViewCellEventArgs e) 

Why ? Correct signature must be

void Grid_CellValidated(DataGridView sender, DataGridViewCellEventArgs e) {


2.Custom event handler

Hello, all.  I am trying to develop my first component and I am trying to
figure something out.  I created a MouseMove event handler for my component
(TMyComponent::MouseMove) and it works fine.  I added my component to a new
project (TMyComponent *MyComponent1) and I want perform a task in the
MyComponent1MouseMove event.  My problem is that the TMyComponent::MouseMove
function is executing, but the TForm1::MyComponent1MouseMove function is
not.  I set the OnMouseMove event to MouseMove for the MyComponent1
instance, but it still only calls the component handler, not the custom
handler.  Why won't it call my custom handler?  Actually, I will need both
functions to execute.  Will I need to explicitly call
TMyComponent::MouseMove() from within the TForm1::MyComponent1MouseMove
function to get both to execute?  Any feedback will be greatly appreciated.
