VCL TaskDialog


Thursday, October 17, 2019

Holger Flick, TMS Evangelist & Embarcadero MVP has recently made a lot of useful videos: tips and tricks for TMS VCL components, new release announcements, events announcements...

Recently he recorded a new series of videos for VCL TaskDialog.
This new series consists of 7 videos, including component introduction and few examples.

TaskDialog series:

Introduction. What is TaskDialog and what are the advantages? What are those dialogs in the first place?

How can you migrate existing apps to use the new dialogs?

Motivation to do the examples step by step and introduction of my cheat sheet.

Example 1: Simple dialog with text

Example 2: Using Command (link) buttons

Example 3: Expanding and collapsing, footer text with hyperlinks

Example 4: Using radio buttons and verification text

His next 2 upcoming videos will be about :
  • TAdvInputTaskDialog: to use a TaskDialog with any custom input control
  • FNC TTMSFNCTaskDialog: the cross-framework & cross-platform TaskDialog equivalent

More videos can be found on our YouTube channel.

Please accept my thanks for your continuing efforts to dive into the VCL components and do informative videos that not only demonstrate HOW, but in most cases, WHY, using the TMS replacement is better. I''ve owned TMS components for ... it''s some large number of years. ''Bout the time Bruno got started. I think. And honestly, given ALL the libraries I have purchased in my 3+ decades since I started with Paradox 1.11i all those years ago, I''ve FORGOTTEN more than I probably remember at this time. So, old dogs can STILL learn new tricks.

I also appreciate your flawless English. I SHOULD be more global and handle accents and languages from afar better. But I don''t. (and the truth is, GERMAN is my first language, as I spent the first five years of my life at Royal Canadian Air Force Base Baden-Baden, but I''ve lost almost all that I learned back then). Being monolingual is a shame on me. That admitted to, your narration is without complaint.

Please dive through as many of the components as you can find the time away from other duties to do. Thank you in advance for your time, the world''s most precious resource.
