Re: Gaining and losing focus on TSpeedButton
Speedbuttons do not have focus by design. If you want to have a button which can hold focus, you need to use either a TButton or a TBitBtn., , As a rule, only use a SpeedButton where you want the user to click on it with the mouse.

Re: dynamic buttons on the form
I assume you mean that you are trying to place a second button on the same form, i.e. over the top of the first button., , If this is the case, there is a BringToFront function for visual components, but I would be tempted to just change the caption of the button depending on what the user has selected. You could then use the buttons caption in the same way as a variable. So, in the buttons OnClick event you could have something like, , if Button1.Caption = 'Button1' then, begin, Do the button1 procedure, end;, if Button1.Caption = 'Button2' then, begin, Do whatever the button2 procedure was meant to do, end;

Re: Two TMainMenu on the main form .. is it possib
Okay,, , First off, the Toolbar itself has a property in the Object Inspector entitled ShowCaptions. Set this to True to be able to see the captions on the buttons., , Secondly, set an Onclick action to the button and in there enter the code to manually execute the popupmenu., , PopupMenu1.Popup(X,Y);, , X is the Horizontal axis (integer) and Y is the vertical value. You should be able to work out these values based on the buttons position on the form., , HTH

Re: Where do I start
Having read through a few of his books, I can confidently recommend anything by Marco Cantu. The man certainly knows his stuff and his books are full of "how to" examples. In fact many of his books come with a companion CD. Try to link up the version of Delphi you are using to his corresponding book and you should be upto speed in no time.

Re: My Hawaii Hair Cut
At this point I was going to point and laugh and then trigger some on running joke like the beardy one from oh so long ago, but then I remembered you can see my pic too and those in glass houses..., , I'll just sit here and dream of being able to take the time off to go to Hawaii instead! Big Grin!

Re: Delphi/paradox multi-user app
Sounds like the BDE setup to me. Check out the BDE administrator in your control panel. Under the configuration tab, check out the drivers/native settings. In here, the Net Dir path needs to be pointing to the same folder on the server on each workstation. If this is not set sorrectly, you will indeed receive .Net warnings as several files will all be trying to manage access to the same database., , Ideally, you should create a new folder on the server specifically for housing the paradox .Net file. This folder should be seperate from your actual database and should be the path to which all workstations Net Dir points to., , Hope this helps you out.

Re: INI file problem
All an inifile does is store whatever information your program tells it to. Since your program is saving to the inifile correctly, I would assume that reading the inifile is also correct. I would guess then, that there is an error/ommission in either the code you use to call the two procedures, or within the procedures themselves., , If you post a snippet of the relevant code here, I am sure one of us will spot whats going wrong.

Re: Wow, it's a new question!
Some questions..., , 1). Is this an application to be used by somebody who is computer literate?, 2). How many screens are there which require user input?, 3). Is this all the user requires the system to do, or is it to calculate wage structures, holiday allowances and so on..., , If you dont already have it, download the rmcontrols package for Delphi (http://www.torry.net/packslite.htm - Its free). It contains some great visual components, one of which is the rmOutlookButtonList. You can place one of these on the left hand side of your screen and use it to navigate all of your programs main screens. For each screen, use a panel and set its visibility and enabled properties as required., , The only problems is that if your program needs a lot of visual components, they will all be on one form which is not really a good thing but we do need to be talking about a lot of components!

One for the technocrats
A hardware problem with a difference Alert , , Having just returned back from some time spent in foreign climes I was more than just a little surprised to find that in our absence two computers [i]had turned themselves on[/i] and one was running happily whilst the other had cooked it's cpu etc Yikes! , , Now, the house had been occupied whilst we were away but, being such a trusting soul, the computers in question were in a locked room along with family jewels and other bric-a-brac. The remaining operational computer was the only one connected (by DSL) to the net and there had been no thunderstorms during our holiday. Other things like video time clocks were functioning normally. , , Any ideas as to the cause Think!

Re: Problem with TMenuItem
The simplest way to determine which menu item has been clicked is to use the sender command in your universal procedure., procedure TForm1.QuestShow(Sender: TObject);, var, MyString : String;, begin, MyString := TMenuItem(Sender).Caption;, , end;You now have the name of the menu item in the string which looking at your code, corresponds to the data you want to load into the memo., , Hope this helps you out!

Re: Forum : Encryption
I have only needed to encrypt sensitive data once before. It was a list of credit card numbers and expiration dates etc..., , I cant remember the specifics, but I incremented the characters ascii values by a set number and then saved the new data to the tables. Depending on which number was being incremented, depended on how many places it was incremented. When viewing, I simply reversed the procedure. Confused , , I have to do something similar again in the very near future so I would also be interested to hear others solutions to this. :)

Mary, , You would get a better response to this query if you asked in the VB forum. Common mistake lots of people make, but many users only surf the forum that relates to their field of expertice. :)
