Anatomy of a Delphi Unit (Delphi For Beginners) ANATOMY OF A DELPHI UNITDelphi For Beginners: Interface, Implementation, Initialization, Finalization, Uses and other "funny" words! If you plan on being a good Delphi programmer than words like interface, implementation, uses need to have special place in your programming knowledge. Delphi Projects When we create a Delphi application, we can start with a blank project, an existing project, or one of Delphi's application or form templates. A project consists of all the files needed to create our target application. The dialog box that pops up when we choose View-Project Manager lets us get access to the form and units in our project. A project is made up of a single project file (.dpr) that lists all the forms and units in the project.
Delphi Basics This web site provides help and reference for the fundamentals of the Delphi© language. It gives an introduction to the Delphi Object Oriented Language for newcomers, and provides a ready reference for experienced programmers. It limits itself to a broad base of the language in order to keep things simple and manageable. The approach taken is to present the most useable basics of Delphi Programming in as accessible a manner as possible. Feel free to contact the author about any aspects of the site.

OpenWire (library) The project started in 1997 as an attempt for visual design of text parsers. Later it was used for designing signal processing libraries, and was expanded to support any data type. Pins form the connections between the components. OpenWire defines 4 types of pins:

The drop files event will be invoked when the user drops one or multiple dragged files on one of application's forms. First this event should be fired for target form (or main form if drop target is unknown), then for the application. Possible implementation for LCL TDropFilesEvent = procedure (Sender: TObject; const FileNames: Array of String) of Object; Add OnDropFiles: TDropFilesEvent to TCustomForm, TApplication and TApplicationProperties. Each form will have property AllowDropFiles: Boolean, which enables this event. Drop files event
Dear delphi.about.com web site visitors, readers and friends who followed my work as the Delphi Programming Guide for the About.com network, the time has come for me to move on to new endeavours. After 15 great years I'm leaving About.com. I've started working as the Delphi Programming Guide in 1998 (days of Delphi 3) and have continued publishing tutorials and articles geared at beginner and advanced Delphi developers. NO, I am not leaving Delphi. In fact, I'm spending much more time in the Delphi (Rad Studio) IDE these days - and I am hoping you are in the same position - to have your working hours filled with joy of coding in the best development environment. One huge "Thank YOU!"

As the maintainer of LCL-WinCE of course I was quite shocked when Microsoft dropped Windows Mobile into the limbo and announced that native applications would be restricted to a very small list of favorite partners. Because of this, since almost 1 year now I have been trying to port the LCL for Android. My first success was in 19th January 2011 when I first built a good x86-linux -> arm-linux cross-compiler which I have been using ever since and I hosted here: http://sourceforge.net/projects/p-tools/files/Free%20Pascal%20for%20ARM/ After that I slowly started exploring Android and the SDK with many pauses. My free time floats a lot depending on the work load, my mood and my current interests. I have other hobbies which alternate as my biggest interest from time to time. Lazarus Development
