  • 1. exe icon problem
    I have project which include many .res file. After I build the project I found the icon of exe file is neither what I set in the project options nor the project.res file contained. It take one of my .res file which contain many icons, it take one icon called camera, then I found actually it take the first character order icon in that res file, that mean if I create one icon in that .res file called AAA, then the exe file will take it. But the question is why the exe file take that icon in that .res file, the name of the .res file have no relations with the project name or exe name. This is a strange case, any idea?
  • 2. Tabset Control
    I'm looking for a tabset control similar to the one located on the Win 3.1 tab (BCB3 Pro and WinXP Pro). I prefer the control to look like the tabset control in Excel 2000 which manipulates the sheets in a workbook. Is it possible to derive a new control from the one located on the Win 3.1 tab to accomplish this? If so, an example would be greatly appreciated. Alternatively, is there a freeware tabset control that someone can point me to? Thanks, Kent
  • 3. Fileopen dialog. How to show some info instead of filenames
    Hi All, I need a file-open dialog which shows instead of filenames some other information stored in this files, i.e. single line comment. The current version of this dialog derived from TOpenDialog and using subclass adds some controls to the parent dialog (which show the necessary info). More convenient would be to show this info in a filenames places in the directory list. Is it possible to do so ? Thanx! Boris
  • 4. Using a TThread object in a component dropped on an ActiveForm
    Hi all I'm trying to use a TThread object to do some background animation on an image component. The drawing happens with a call to Synchronize and that works fine in a regular application. But when I put the same image component with its TThread, the calls to Synchronize never work. I've traced it to the sending of the message to the application, but it seems the message never reaches the ActiveForm. It's like the host application (made in Delphi as well) eats up this message. Could anyone confirm this? Thanks Olivier

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?

FileSystemWatcher watcher = new FileSystemWatcher();

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

watcher.Filter = "*.txt";

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

watcher.EnableRaisingEvents = true;
