Silverlight's new Deep Zoom - amazing effects
by Wes Peterson
Imagine for a moment a web page that displays a group of thumbnail images, and, instead of the usual business of clicking a thumbnail to see a larger version, you simply use your mouse's scroll wheel to zoom in and out, pan about the image; and see incredible detail up to quite large zoomed views. Imagination is now reality.

Getting locates to work on a non-key field with a SQL Server Table using filters
by Joshua Delahunty
A "simple" procedure that worked fine in BDE (use a TTable component attached to a table with a numeric primary key field, a string field not in the primary key, and a third field that's filtered on, use the .Locate() call to perform an incremental search on the string field) was failing using TADOTable and SQL Server. This article describes how I worked around the issue.
