  • 1. IEEE 1394 (Firewire) BCB component
    Hi, I am searching for an IEEE 1394 (AKA firewire) BCB (or delphi) component. Best will be to locate an already existing one, but if none is available - than any source code as a driver will do. I will be grateful for any help in this, thanx, yuval
  • 2. One TMyComponent per project
    I'd like to be able to code the component's constructor to automatically check if it's the only instance of it's class in the project when it's dropped on the form. If it isn't, I want it to say something and then delete itself. I'd also like to force it to be dropped on the main form if possible. ~ JD
  • 3. Property is empty when it isn't
    I have an AnsiString property that is set in the IDE and I want to use in the components constructor but when I do, the property is empty. For example, the following displays an empty string: if( !ComponentState.Contains(csDesigning) ) { ShowMessage( PropertyName ); } However, if I check it in the form's constructor it displays correctly. ~ JD

Excellent question (i would think the problem lies there), However, I don't seem to have a say in that. I have created a few components that display a message in the ctor. These components, placed on the Form1 and on the DataModule are created in different orders each time I open the project and i don't know if the module containing the components (Form1 or DM) are fully created before the module's components are created (i would think so). note: When I close the Form1 module and leave the DM 'open' (i.e., visible in the IDE) before closing the project and then re-open the project, only the DM is created. Then, when I open the Form1 (using Ctrl+F12), the Form1 is created and the properties referencing components on DM are set correctly. This means that, before closing a project i have to close all forms... and forgetting to do so... Richard

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?

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

watcher.EnableRaisingEvents = true;
