  • 2. Linking to subcomponents at design-time.
    I've created a new component class 'TFred' derived from TComponent which has two Timagelists as sub-components, called fA and fB. I've published TImagelist * properties A and B, with getter functions only. What I want to do now is to be able to assign - at design time - A or B to the "Images" property of a TMenu-derived component, using the property inspector. But, I can't get "Fred1->A" and "Fred1->B" to appear in the property inspector dropdown... Any suggestions? - Roddy

    Hi, I,m using BCB4 and would like to know how to add an Accelerator Key (Alt + Key) to a TCustomControl. The key letter does not have to be identified by an underline. Thank you, Ron
  • 4. Am unable to access the new methods in an updated component
    Hi! I have made some changes in a component I had previously made and installed. When I replace the old component with the new component, code-insight still 'recognises' the methods and variables in the old component and I cannot access the new methods and data in the new components. It makes it appear like am still dealing with the old component. Please assist me on how update to the new component properly.

Now I see my components in Delphi and C++ projects, but I can not compile C++ Builder projetcs. Compiler say that ComponentFileName.obj files not found. And realy, in time of package compile it did not create obj files for pas files. Best regards Dmitry V. Bolshakov

Incorrect parameter for custom event handler

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?
