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.

This month, the Oregon Delphi User Group will be looking at integrating help into Delphi applications. Just Great Software produces a complete help authoring tool called, HelpScribble that simplifies the task of producing help files and manuals in multiple formats. These files can be used to provide context-sensitive help in your Delphi programs, stand-alone software manuscripts, or even online documentation--all from the same help project file.

We have decided we want to meet again! I don't know how regular this will be, but this month, we're getting together, once again on the 3rd Monday of the month to talk about programming with the great Delphi programming tool.

The emphasis this month will be using Firebird with examples and member experiences shared.

Final Regular Meeting

05/17/2010 6:00 pm

We will have one final "regular" meeting of the Oregon Delphi User Group. It's been a good run, lasting 15 years, but as things change and people move on, other venues of networking and professional development will, and have already begun, to take its place.

DLLs for Easier Updates

09/21/2009 6:00 pm


Using DLLs when you distribute your application allows you to replace individual components of your application suite without having to kick all users out of the program. For instances, the Accounts Payable module can be replaced without shutting down the shipping department.

DLLs can be very useful in many situations and once you learn a few tricks, are really quite simple. We will talk about how to structure your application to use DLLs to make updating installed applications much simpler to manage and keeps customers working happily.

Mid-Summer Fun

07/20/2009 6:00 pm

It's the middle of the summer, so let's set the serious work aside and have a little fun for a change. I bet we can still learn something...

First, I found an old OpenGL program that displays fireworks and thought it would be fun to look at the code and watch splashes of color explode--especially since some major fireworks displays in the area were canceled this year due to budget constraints.

Delphi Magic!

05/18/2009 6:00 pm


There is a saying that any technology that is sufficiently advanced is indistinguishable from magic!

There are a lot of new features and language enhancements in the last three versions of Delphi that may seem like magic to those who do not know about them. And there are some features that have been in Delphi for a long time that some don't realize are there.
