Keeping Pop-up Forms Where They Belong

Have you ever locked yourself out of your program by not being able to get to a modal form that somehow got sent behind the main form? Have you struggled with the differences between the Owner and Parent of a form or tried to solve your z-ordering problem by simply setting the FormStyle to fsStayOnTop?

This month, Homer Jones will help decipher all this and give you a great solution to these issues commonly fought when writing Delphi VCL programs having just solved these for his customers.

May In-Person Social Event!

With most ODUG attendees vaccinated now, we are thrilled to be able to meet in person once again!

One of our members has graciously offered their place for a back-yard social. This means there will be no formal technical topic and no online meeting in May.

If you are interested in attending this event, please fill out the RSVP form linked below.

Testing

Various topics concerning testing will be discussed this month, including types of testing (e.g. Unit Testing or Integration Testing). Jonathan Eaton will highlight these differences, sharing strengths and weaknesses and when to use which types. David Cornelius will demonstrate the DUnit test framework in Delphi.

Join us online and share your experience with us.

Framed!

Frames in Delphi are a handy way of grouping controls together and then using them multiple places. You can attach code as well.

This month, Gene Juhos will be demonstrating the uses and benefits of using frames in Delphi.

Tune in to learn and share your experiences!
