I just finished rebuilding my IDE and reinstalling all the programs on my
new PC.

I took a screenshot http://homepage.mac.com/dpuett/Desktop.jpg

Anyone else care to share a pic of their IDE?

Hi Tim,

He has a scheduled task to boot Delphi at 2am so that it has started up by
the time he starts work Wink

Understandable Smilebut all "application" developers will have quite a few (I
know I do)

Yeah, It looks like a lot but I need them all.  Smile

1st Class (Visual components)
CE Tools (interact with Windows CE PDAs)
DBISAM
ElevateDB
DigitalPersona interfaces (fingerprint reader)
ESBDates (time/date routines)
InfoPower (looking to phase out)
Multiline (stacked tabs on the component palette)
TMS Component Pack (the best deal for tons of components)
Venus (Only use one, the absolute best component for storing program and component
run-time settings)
Video (Free component to display webcam video)
SystemComponents (used to access Active Directory objects)
Triton2002 (used to send emails but I will be phasing these out)
Mitec System Info (The best components for system info)
Billenium Effects (cool visual effects)
WPTools (Full word processor)
SMImport (Best importer)
Addict (spell checker for WPTools)
AppControls (tons of nifty app components)
EAN45 (barcode components)
DiskControls (tons of nifty disk related components)
tplockbox (TurboPower encryption tools)
jpeg (jpeg component and QR Jpeg component)
Raize 3 (lots of components but I'm probably going to phase these out as well)
DevExpress QuantumGrid 6 Suite
DevExpress ExpressPrinting System
DevExpress VerticalGrid

See?  Not that many.  Smile

At the risk of giving you a straight line - where's Venus from?

Hi Roy,

Dunno about Venus, but take a look at StorageLib from Deep Software
(http://www.deepsoftware.ru/), .. one of the best, most stable component
suites I have. Enables you to save anything to Registry, INI, XML, Bin
seamlessly (i.e. swap from one to another), including auto-form position and
state, and component properties.

Best regards

Venus was a component suite by Opaque Software.  They haven't done an update
in years and it looks as if they let their domain name lapse as well.  As a
matter of fact, I had to contact them for a Delphi 7 update which they
generously provided free of charge.

Here is a screenshot of xoPersist

http://homepage.mac.com/dpuett/oxPersist.jpg

It has been the best settings storage component I have looked at.  They also
had the standard things like buttons, graphic button, splitters, and such.
What was really cool about their software was they had this 'convert'
function.  For example, you already had a bunch of buttons on your form.
You could right-click on a button and convert it to another button.

http://homepage.mac.com/dpuett/convert.jpg

That was nifty and convenient for a single component conversion.

I contacted another company to purchase the Venus IP since it wasn't being
developed but nothing came of it.

Thanks for the heads up about the other component.  I think LMD has
something similar as well.

Eventually, I'll have to find something else since oxPersist doesn't work in
anything above D7.

The problem is, well the problems are, I've already paid for Venus Smile I
like the way it works, and I prefer the layout.

I know the current trend is to have a separate non-visual component for
everything.  I do like how Deep Software Storage has the option for
encryption but I don't want to add another 5 non-visual components.  I also
don't like how it lists all of the components on the left side.  I like how
oxPersist only shows the stored items.  Of course, oxPersist doesn't allow
the storage of arbitrary strings, so I have a tab page with nothing but text
fields to store strings.  DSS has that functionality included.

Of course, I can't stick with D5 Enterprise and D7 Pro forever, so I'll
eventually have to switch to a more modern storage component and it will
probably be DSS.

Hi David,

The non-visual component is simply a synonym for an instantiated class
instance with a lifetime controlled by the owning form. In many cases (with
StorageLib) I don't use the drag-n-drop components, preferring to create
instances via code, .. works just a well.

Actually I was just pointing out how "out of synch" I am with the normal
application developer. Smiley
