Packages and Libraries / Re: The Brooks Framework
« Last post by RedOctober on Today at 01:24:37 am »
Hi Zoran, thanks.  I now have the reference docs.  I'm wondering if there is a "How to get started" book somewhere, especially for the most recent stable version (3.9.9). 

Platform:  Windows Server 2016 Essentials, Lazarus 1.8.2, FPC 3.0.4

I was able to load the chat demo, I click Run and a window quickly flashes and disappears before I can read it.  Not sure what is wrong, or where to go next. 

Also, I need Brook to connect to the Firebird RDBMS.  Does anyone know if that's possible?

Since you have v1.9 my reply was wrong, and I will have a closer look.

The issue has been fixed in Laz trunk by Mattias Gaertner. It was an issue in codetools.

apeoperaio, if you want to patch your Lazarus version 1.8.2, you should do this:
  • In folder components/codetools/ open the file fpcsrcrules.inc
  • Immediately after line 13 (Score:=-10) add the line Add('tests');
  • Save and recompile the IDE.

Thanks wp!
I just checked - I have version 1.9 of FPSpreadsheet installed - should I revert to one of the older versions? And, if so, which version would be best?
Just tried your solution - even with no filename in WorkbookSource, dropping a tsWorksheetGrid yields exactly the same error!

Red poker chips? You mean the red box in the icon of, for example, MainMenu1?

The icons roughly indicate the class of the items in the component tree view of the object inspector (see procedure TComponentTreeView.GetImageFor in (lazarus)/components/ideintf/componenttreeview.pas, and images in (lazarus)/images/componenttreeview):
  • form --> image oi_form.png
  • control which accepts other controls (e.g. TPanel) --> image oi_box.png
  • "normal" control --> image oi_control.png
  • component (e.g. TMainMenu) --> image oi_component.png
  • collection (e.g. dataset TFieldDefs--> image oi_collection.png
  • persistent (collection item, e.g. TField) --> image oi_item.png

Does your Button1 have Default := True?
If so, then is expected behaviour.

IIRC in a previous version it did not behave like that, but it was adjusted to mimic Delphi behaviour.

Says the apt man page -

 Removing a package removes all packaged data, but leaves usually small (modified) user
           configuration files behind, in case the remove was an accident. Just issuing an
           installation request for the accidentally removed package will restore its function as
           before in that case. On the other hand you can get rid of these leftovers by calling purge
           even on already removed packages. Note that this does not affect any data or configuration
           stored in your home directory.

What I don't know is just where that action os driven from, --purge 'should' remove ie the config file directories. However, is that implemented by apt itself or does apt call one of the many potentially present scripts in a a deb package ?  More research is indicated.
