Creating Custom WPF Controls in Delphi Prism
Ray Konopka – Raize Software
Relevant to: All-Access, JBuilder
One of the benefits of WPF is that it is flexible enough to handle many situations that would typically require creating a custom control in another user interface framework. However, there are still times when creating a custom control is appropriate and this session covers what you need to know to get started. Topics include user controls vs. custom controls, base class selection, dependency properties, routed events, templates, and much more.
Gesturing Capabilities for New Application and Current Projects
Vsevolod Leonov – Embarcadero
Vsevolod analyzes gesturing capabilities available in Delphi and C++Builder from the viewpoint of practical effectiveness. Benefits of gesture control are discussed for application, when it's the key metaphor of UI. In addition, a number of ways to improve usability of the existing projects for DB is considered. Mouse-driven and touch device gesture trigging is compared on the base of test results.
Database Change Management for Application Developers
Brad Wulf – Embarcadero
A database is a shared central resource. Unlike Java, Delphi or .NET projects where code is copied to the developer's workstation for editing, database schema objects are created and altered in a development environment then promoted to a UAT (User Acceptance Testing) environment and then ultimately placed in a production environment. DB Change Manager is the tool that assists in the process of promoting code across the various development and testing environments that an enterprise may require. DB Change Manager also integrates with version control tools like Subversion (which we'll see in this presentation), Team Foundation Server, CVS and others. In this presentation we'll discuss the common work flow that Embarcadero has observed from its user base. We will also explore how users can add Alter, Create and Drop scripts generated by DB Change Manager to the version control tool of their choice.
A Pragmatic and Powerful Code Generator with Generics and Anonymous Methods
Jeroen Pluimers – better office benelux
Sometimes it pays off to generate some of your source code. If you, for instance, can split your behavior in generated base classes and specific descending classes, this can speed up development enormously. You do not need a full-fledged code generator for this. By keeping it pragmatic and reusing parts of the Delphi RTL itself, you can get results quickly.
