  • 2. TIBQuery
    Hi, I'm using C++ Builder 6 with the latest service pack and I am trying to write a component which uses TIBQuery. I problem is that I cannot find a library module to use in the 'Requires' section which will link in TIBQuery. I have tried using every package I can find... Any advice gratefully received. Ray Goff
  • 3. Avoiding conflicts with VCL enumerations
    Hi, I have several enumerations in my component that conflict with VCL enums, f.e. enum TMyBevelStyle {bsLowered, bsRaised, bsNone}; when I assign one of the enum members to a TMyBevelStyle property this results in compiler error messages like: E2015 Ambiguity between 'bsLowered' and 'Extctrls::bsLowered' what is the best way to avoid such conflicts? Do I really have to change the enum members to more complicated names to make them hopefully unique? IIRC in Delphi I could prefix the enum members with the unit name which serves as a namespace, is something similar possible in BCB? thanks, Nick

Incorrect parameter for custom event handler

Hi,

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 
&CanPost);
typedef void __fastcall (__closure *OnPutToDatabaseEvent) (TObject* Sender, 
bool &DoDefault);
...
private:
   OnPutToDatabaseEvent FOnPutToDatabaseEvent;
...
__published:
   __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:

        Grid.CellValidated+=new 
DataGridViewCellEventHandler(Grid_CellValidated);
...

        void Grid_CellValidated(object sender, DataGridViewCellEventArgs e) 
{
....
}

Why ? Correct signature must be

void Grid_CellValidated(DataGridView sender, DataGridViewCellEventArgs e) {

Andrus. 

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.

Thanks,

Mark

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

private void Form1_Load(object sender, System.EventArgs e)

{




System.Windows.Forms.LinkLabel l = new System.Windows.Forms.LinkLabel();

FileSystemWatcher watcher = new FileSystemWatcher();

watcher.Path = @"C:\TempFolder";

watcher.Filter = "*.txt";

//error here: Cannot implicitly convert type System.EventHandler to
FileSystemWatcher,

watcher.Created += new System.EventHandler(OnCreated);

watcher.EnableRaisingEvents = true;





}

private void OnCreated(object sender, System.EventArgs e)

{

MessageBox.Show("yo");
