  • 1. structure editor in a component
    Hi all, I have the following struct struct MyStruct { int B1; int B2; int B3; int B4; int B5; int B6; } ; And I want to make a text editor, using a TEdit derived component. The reader and writer for the component should look like this..... class PACKAGE TBEditor : public TEdit { private: MyStruct __fastcall FReadValue(); void __fastcall FWriteValue(MyStruct v); ... ... And I am hoping that I can do this from the published area (which I have to write yet but have declared) but I am getting a compiler message.... [C++Error] MyEditor.h(45): Not an allowed type. for the following line after published..... __published: __property MyStruct Value = { read=FReadValue, write=FWriteValue }; }; What could be causing this? Any insight will be apreciated....
  • 2. TGraphicControl inside TGraphicControl
    Hello, I'm writing a component which inherits from TGraphicControl. I want use another TGraphicControl component inside that component. How can I do it? Can I set Parent property of this placed inside component as Parent which is assigned to my base component ? P.S. Sorry for my English! ;)
  • 3. my bcpp component
    hi there. I'know that delphi VCL derivates components can be used in bcpp just with a new header file at thats it. I'm a newbie in the Borland component realm so... is it possible that my brand new custom component written in Borland C++ builder 6 can be used in Delphi 6/7 as native VCL component? Thanks in advance anyone who reply...
  • 4. TRichEdit, OnResizeRequest event and box width
    TRichEdit is created dynamically on form and OnResizeRequest handler properly attached. I want it to be resized dynamically to fit any text entered. When text changes, handler gets called and receives proper desired _height_ of Rich Text box. But desired _width_ remains unchanged, no matter how much text is entered in box. (Word wrapping is off, border style is bsSizeable.) Is this problem of native MS control (on Win2000) or can TRichText be convinced to report real desired width in handler? If not, how can one measure actual width of text in Rich Text Box? Do I need to draw everything into hidden control and check result or is there some easier way? Sending EM_GETSCROLLPOS to find how much to resize the box does not provide reliable data. TIA, /Pavel
  • 5. Redefine Paint method of inerithed component
    Hi, I've created a TIMSSpeedButton component, inerithed from TSpeedButton component, in order to add OnMouseEnter and OnMouseLeave events. Now I need to draw a black border around the component, but I don't want to redefine all originally Paint method but simple paint border on button (I think it's the easiest way) How can I do this? Thanks Mario Sernicola

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.

I am getting an error down below, this same code works in VB, what gives?
