In this Delphi Programming video we take a look at the OnSetText event available on TFields and how we can use it to make entering dates into data aware controls more friendly to our users. This video is nice and short (under 4 minutes) but I hope still useful. Watch it here.
I'll be presenting at CodeRage III this year (all going well), one of the talks I'll be doing is 100 IDE Hints & Tips. 100 is a big number to keep track of, so here is a little utility to help me keep track of where I'm up to. This video is almost 8 minutes long and it's more of a beginner movie. Watch it here.
In this Delphi training movie we look at how calculated fields work on DataSets. In particular we look at Calculated and InternalCalc types. This movie a bit shy of 8 minutes and you can watch it here.
In this movie we look at how we can change the way data is displayed in data aware controls, without changing the data. Specifically we look at the TField.OnGetText event and other TField properties that control the way data is displayed. This video is nice and short (about 3 minutes) and you can watch it here.
In this movie we look at using an XML file within Delphi. To make this very easy we take advantage of the DTD (Document Type Definition) for the XML file, and use the XML Data Binding Wizard in Delphi to generate a whole bunch of code for us. You can watch the video here. It's a bit under 9 minutes long
