    6. Its vs. it's

    "It's" always means "it is."

    "It's," unlike pretty much all other words with an apostrophe and an "s", does not ever indicate a possessive.

    "Its" is the possessive, strangely enough.

    "It's a good program.": The same as "It is a good program."

    "It's features are impressive.": The same as "It is features are impressive," which is wrong.

    "Its features are impressive.": Correct!

    7. Using Paradox Tables with .NET

    Although the .NET Framework is well "tuned" for MS SQL Server, it can also be pressed into service with other databases.

    A somewhat unusual case is using ASP .NET to access and modify data in Paradox tables.  If you're going to do that, the most important thing to know is which ODBC driver to use - because you will be using an ODBC Driver.

    The driver to use was created by Intersolv and bundled with Paradox v9. That driver has a version designation of v3.11

    9. Uninstall in Safe Mode

    By default, you cannot uninstall programs in Safe Mode. Whatever issue you are handling, your first choice is to resolve it using more acceptable solutions such as using System Restore or MSConfig. For MSConfig, try disabling all startup programs then see if you can use Add/Remove Programs. If you wish to enable the Windows Installer Service while in Safe Mode, add the following registry entry:

    HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\SafeBoot\Minimal\MSIServer\VE\TREG_SZ\F\D %Service%

    10. Fast, Free DNS Servers

    The best free and fast DNS server service provider is OpenDNS. At least that's who we are currently using and recommending.

    OpenDNS free dns server list:

    • 208.67.222.222
    • 208.67.220.220

    If you wish to try others, search for free fast Public DNS Servers List.

    1. One Recommended way of writing IF/End IF statements

    Format the IF/Endif for easy reading. I have found this to be easy to read and follow:

    if (         (something = somethingelse)
          and (x = y)
          and (z = a)
       ) then
    begin
    ..
    end;

    To indent the structure and line up the parenthesis makes it, I feel, much easier to read.

    3. Object.Method() Syntax

    The syntax of object.method() is consistent throughout ObjectPAL. If an object with the name box has code on its mouseClick event, you can access that code with box.mouseClick() method from any other object. When this code executes, the UIObject method mouseClick() calls the mouseClick event.

    How do you know when you can call the code in a built-in method of an object? Easy, if the run-time library has a method equivalent, then you can use itfor example, mouseClick() and pushButton().

    4. Don't Leave Experiments In Your Code!

    If, in experimentation, you use sleep(), doDefault, or DisableDefault to overcome some odd or misunderstood behavior, do not leave the commands in your code. If using the command didnt seem to make a difference, then take it out. Use commands only when they are called for. One great way to really learn the event model and the power of these and other commands is to experiment with adding them. Remember to take them out, however, if they do not do what you wanted.

    5. Study The Experts

    Paradox provides experts that generate code at the field level, in the form open, etc. It is a good idea to study the ObjectPAL generated by these experts.

    6. Before You Code

    Before you code in ObjectPAL, ask yourself two questions. Does Paradox already do this? Is there a better and easier way? Remember, simple solutions for simple problems.

    7. Paradox Looks for Non-Delivered, Then Delivered

    Whenever you open a form, report, library, or script using the open() method and do not specify a file extension, Paradox always looks first for the nondelivered .?SL file and then for the delivered .?DL file.

    8. Hung versus Hanged

    Use "hung" for things and longer durations. Use "hanged" for people and shorter durations.

    Examples:

    "I hung a picture on the wall."

    "He hung a deer on a tree for butchering."

    "Felicia and Ashley hung out last night."

    "Horse theives were hanged in the 19th century."

    "The terrorist was hanged and his corpse was hung on the tree."

    9. Associative Arrays in Delphi/Object Pascal

    Although Object Pascal doesn't have a native associative array, many developers just use a TStringList. Others have implemented a true associative array in Object Pascal. Search the Internet for TStringHash and THashedStringList classes for examples.

    10. Rich Editor: Spell checking

    Spell checking is available in our rich editor for IE and Gecko based browsers such as Firefox and Safari. We use our rich editor in many areas of our community such as message boards, knowledge base, job postings, resumes, etc. For IE, there is an icon on the editor's toolbar. For Gecko based browsers such as Firefox and Safari, browser enabled spell checking is active. Spell checking is not available for Google Chrome. Currently Chrome's spell checking is not compatible with IFrames so you have spell checking OUTSIDE our editor.
