C.01. INTRODUCTION TO THE TUTORIAL — RAW BASICS

PMInterface subcomponents of a PM04 DataMaster module in the Borland Developer Studio 2006® Object Inspector (PM1..PM6).

PMInterface subcomponents of a PM04 DataMaster module in the Borland Developer Studio 2006® Object Inspector (PM1..PM6).

Paging-related members of UPC™ modules are exposed by TADVANCE_PMInterface subcomponents which are uniformly named after the internalized module — "PM1_Main", "PM2_ToolsTop", "PM3_RelTop", "PM4_RelBot", "PM5_Toolsbot", and "PM6_Status." The following expressions therefore would call the AddPageAt() function of any module's main paging region. Your code will follow this pattern:

Copy code to clipboard (JavaScript/IE).

BASIC ISSUES

  1. Dropping controls:

    As with conventional page controls, visual controls can only be dropped on page classes intended to accept visual controls from the IDE.

  2. Where to find relevant documentation:

    To consolidate information, TADVANCE class descendants are documented with their base class.

    • This means that you can find related information of class branches together.
    • Understand however that base classes will not necessarily possess all documented members.
    • VCL members are documented by the IDE.
  3. Selecting modules, or parts of a module:

    To select a page module, click its main FocusControl.

    • Although you can select FocusControls of embedded composite modules because the Delphi and C++Builder IDEs provide no way of preventing selection, you should only select the main focus control of a module or pages.
    • Invoke the component editor for the root module by right-clicking its main FocusControl.
