I will be presenting:
- Power of the RTTI In Delphi
- Moving from BDE to DBX
I have this love hate relationship with PowerPoint, sometimes I find its the best way to communication information. However as soon as things get technical I really dislike seeing a bunch of code on slides.
In My Power of the RTTI in Delphi Session I currently I have grand total of 3 Slides for this presentation the rest is code.
I will be covering:
- Interacting with Published Information
- Dynamic Method Invocation
- Dynamic Class Creation
- Ideas on how you might use it your applications.
In My BDE to DBX Session, I have several slides, but don't worry I have plenty of code and examples to show.
One of the things I like the best about this presentation won't come till near the end, but at the State of Utah we wrote a simple DFM parser and combined it with Martin Waldenburg Delphi Parser (TmwPasLex) and wrote a simple but effective conversion utility. It saved us tons of time when converting a BDE Application to DBX. The application we converted was not a simple demo program, It has 650+ DFMs. And several more units 500+ with no associated dfm. That does not count any third party code, or our own internally developed components.
I have updated the conversion utility to be slightly more generic as the original was specific to our needs. I will share that code with the attendees.
I hope to see you there!
