The Oregon Delphi User Group is a community-sponsored group of Delphi developers and enthusiasts in and around the Portland, Oregon metro area. We offer periodic meetings presented by leading developers, authors, and community members who graciously share their experiences with the group and focus on the Delphi Integrated Development Environment and related technologies.

Maximum IDE Productivity

05/21/2001 6:30 pm

How many Environment or Editor options have you looked at? Do you have any Delphi Plug-ins installed?

David will explain how enhancing Delphi 5's IDE, or Integrated Development Environment, has helped him increase productivity. Two plug-ins, GExperts and CodeRush, will show the incredible power of this RAD environment and expand your idea of productivity.


Paradox-to-InterBase Conversion Project

05/21/2001 7:45 pm

Moving your applications from troublesome Paradox files to robust InterBase? What are some of the things you will encounter? After just finishing up such an application, David will show why you will need stored procedures and triggers when you've lived just fine without them before.


David Cornelius has been a developer for 15 years working mostly on the DOS and Windows platforms using Borland's Pascal compilers. He is currently consulting through ATSI Group

Embedding Word documents in InterBase using OLE

04/16/2001 6:30 pm

Ed ran into quite a problem while trying to attach Word documents to an Interbase database—nothing seemed to work. He'll show us the method that finally did the trick.

He'll also show the general outline of his system and the objects used. This is very extensive with about 50 forms and 50 tables. All of these are tied together with the users always having the same look and feel no matter where they are in the system.


Video Capture, Graphics, and Image Analysis

04/16/2001 7:45 pm

Two medical applications will be discussed.

InterBase Installation and Security

03/19/2001 6:30 pm

Have you ever wanted to embed an InterBase installation along with user, database and table creation within the installation of your Delphi application? Obstacles, caveats and possible solutions will be explored. Although Wise Installation Systems will be utilized for part of the solution, the concepts should be able to be carried over to any installation tool.


NT Services, Sockets, ADO, and XML Parsing

03/19/2001 7:45 pm

What does an NT Service, a Socket, ADO, and XML have to do with each other? All four technologies are well supported by Delphi and all being utilized as part of one IVR application at Interactive Northwest. David just completed his first Windows NT Service application--and learned a LOT! He would like to share his experience with the group to help make others aware of issues lurking in the shadows of this type of beast.


Business Meeting

02/19/2001 6:00 pm

David Cornelius and Homer Jones (ODUG coordinator and assistant) would like to present some ideas about growing the Oregon Delphi User Group into a larger, perhaps more formal organization. Several ideas have been tossed around and we would like some discussion and feedback from you, the members of the group. Please join us at 6:00 PM for this important meeting. Pizza will be served and the regular meeting will follow.

ReportBuilder, et al

02/19/2001 7:00 pm

Digital Metaphors, the publishers of ReportBuilder, are sponsoring the pizza for this event in exchange for us showing off their product. And they have a very good product! Practically the standard for reporting under Delphi, ReportBuilder is a powerful design tool for creating complex reports. There will be several trial copies of ReportBuilder to hand out, and one lucky person will get a full, licensed copy of ReportBuilder Pro, a $500 Value!


01/15/2000 7:15 pm

It's an understatement to say that there is a lot of excitement mounting for Borland's Delphi and C++Builder products on Linux. Linux itself is nothing short of a phenomenon rising out of obscurity just a few years ago, to be the hottest topic in every computer-related periodical available. However, the biggest deficit of this free and stable operating system is the lack of applications.

Borland aims to change all that!

MIDAS Technology

11/20/2000 7:15 pm

We hear a lot about multitier applications and Borland's Multitier Distributed Application Services Suite (MIDAS) is an excellent tool to create and deliver them with Delphi. Come hear an introductory level presentation of the benefits Delphi developers have using MIDAS to implement their multitier solutions. We will discuss the purpose and use of various MIDAS components, general information about multitier application design, and walk through the code of a small multitier application.
