Threading the needle

Delphi Mumblings – Yikes, last week slipped by without a post. I’ve been on the road checking in with some customers and teaching some seminars on Scenic Automation. Seeing customers face to face is always a rewarding experience. It’s great to witness our gear and software in use under real production ...

First Milestone!

Delphi Mumblings – Tonight I can celebrate the completion of my 1000th line of Delphi code written during my VB port. Though I’ve got quite a ways to go, it’s a good milestone to pass on the road to success. My blogging seems to be unintentionally settling into a weekly rhythm. Around this time in [...]

Some discoveries after a few days of real work

Delphi Mumblings – It’s been a busy week. The fall is traditionally a busy time for us, since most of the regional theatres and universities are starting to work on the upcoming fall shows. As their productions start to ramp up, our order volume increases significantly. Which is great! But, it does shuffle ...

The Very Model of a Modern Major General

Delphi Mumblings – As I begin the long, winding process of porting my code to Delphi, my first step is to re-read the user manual that I initially wrote and pull out Use Cases from the documentation. I’m using ModelMaker to aid with the design process and it has built-in support for Use Case diagrams. However, ...

Great Docking Library

Delphi Mumblings – I swear I’ll blog about my ModelMaker process soon, but that topic deserves some nice screenshots and coherent writing. In other words, it’s going to take more time than I have at the moment Tonight, in my last 1/2 hour before bed, I got a chance to play with my newest component in my ...

Method(s) for the Madness

Delphi Mumblings – With the decision to move to Delphi, the $10-million question is ‘How?’. The VB6 application is complete and battle-tested. The aborted Java half-port is neither. So the first thought I had was to somehow leverage bits of the VB6 application in the new Delphi version. There are two ...

You’re doing what now?

Delphi Mumblings – My idea du jour is to port Avista’s VB6 code to Delphi. Delphi is an Object Pascal compiler tightly integrated with a great application library known as the VCL (Visual Component Library). It is a Windows-only product, the main focus being on Win32 development (though a .Net compiler exists ...

The Back Story, or How I Got Here

Delphi Mumblings – So, the main software package that I developed to run the Creative Conners motor control devices, known as Stagehands, was done originally in VB6. This is the desktop application that allows theatre technicians to program motors that haul scenery around on stage during theatrical shows. It’s ...

Delphi beginnings

Delphi Mumblings – Blogging is an odd phenomenon, people writing randomly about topics that are perhaps beyond their expertise and often beyond the interests of others. Well, I’m going to take that idea and drive it to its extremity! The blog is mostly about my trips and blunders as I learn the Delphi ...
