Existing Member Intro
I found Prestwood several years ago but I never introduced myself. My name is Daniel and I've been coding in Delphi on and off, but mostly on, since 1997. At the time, COBOL and BASIC was what I was coding in a client-server environment, before most people even knew what nTier architecture meant. Heck I didn't know, but was doing it. Someone in another department came up to me, presumably after seeking permission from my manager, and asked if I knew Delphi. I said, knew what? Having never heard of Delphi I said no, but was anxious to do something new, so I was transferred to the other department. I didn't what the future was for Delphi and it wasn't to be a .Net, however, Delphi has found me and paid me well over the past decade point five. Take care and talk to you later.

RE: Point-Of-Sale (POS) Screen Des...
Anas: Wes is correct. Moreover, I cannot share code from the application without breaking copyright rules/laws. Yes, I wrote it, but I do not own it, my employer owns the code - not me. Follow what, Wes, indicates and see where it takes you. I do the same thing with languages I learn such as Ruby, or PHP. The other thing you probably need is a solid understanding of database design. if you do not have a DBA, or database administrator, available to you, I would suggest looking at some materials from "In a Nutshell" series about database design. Another idea: Download a POS available for demo purposes and you may be able to see the tables in SQL Server or MySQL and gather some ideas from their structure. It will help in any case with how to organize a good POS system. Finally, this is one of many great sources for Delphi info: http://delphi.about.com/ Stop back if you have specific questions. We are here to help.

How to change sort to descending?

If it is an index, then by default it is automatically ascending.

When selecting the data, include a SORT BY clause and then DESC for descending - it is automatically ascending by default. Here is an example:
SELECT FieldA, FieldB, FieldC FROM Employee ORDER BY FieldB; 
SELECT FieldA, FieldB, FieldC FROM Employee ORDER BY FieldB DESC;

RE: Need BDE replacement
Wes: True, to your last statement, however, what do you do if the SQL syntax changes between DB systems? I pass everything through a SQL factory and it modifies the SQL statement according to the DB I am attached. For example, BETWEEN is different with Elevate than MySQL than SQL Server, so it must be massaged to be formatted correctly. I have worked with DM before, just not in about 5 years or so and I agree, they are nice in many cases, however, given my choice, I prefer to not use data aware controls - just my choice Have a great evening, Wes. If Prestwood ever needs an extra hand (wink wink - nudge nudge)

Hi Daniel, Yeah, that's a great tool. One of our members demoed it at one of our Sac Delphi user group meetings a few years ago. Mike

How do I access menu commands in one program from
I am a neophyte programmer. I have figured out how to generate a simple Delphi 7 form with a button in it which will run an executable. , , procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);, begin, ShellExecute(Form1.Handle, 'open', 'c:\E3238s\bin\E3238s.exe',, nil, nil, SW_SHOWNORMAL);, end;, end., , My problem is I need to know how to access the menus that are a part of this executable. For example how would I access the FILE menu in order to select EXIT.

PDF and RTF and Graphics
>We are also toying with Rave report instead of RTF as Rave apparently can output a PDF quite easily. [wp] I think you're on the right track - turning to a reporting tool.  Rave might do the trick, but I've found it kind of hard to work with. I haven't tried to do exactly what you're describing, but I'd be very surprised if my favorite reporting tool couldn't handle it: Fast Report.  Fast Report also does a fine job of producing PDF output.
