Delphi Announcements


Anatec Seeking Delphi Developers

Anatec is urgently looking for Delphi developers to help turn out an automated sales system for Chrysler Motors. Featured on the cover of this week's Computer World magazine, this project has attracted national attention.

A large number of positions are available, including everything from simple Delphi coding to architectural system design. Positions are immediately available, but may require relocation to the Detroit, MI area. Applicants are required to have expertise in object oriented programming. Experience with Delphi and object pascal, although not a requisite, is a big plus.

Bill White Software Productions

Bill White Software Productions, a local Atlanta Delphi developer, is proud to announce the release of 15 native Delphi VCL components that allow you to create professional looking installations for your applications. Just place the components on your form, set some properties, then click on some buttons and your installation file(s)/disk(s) will be built for you!

Plus, because they are native Delphi components, if you want to do anything special, you use native Delphi code--no scripts! Supports installation of IDAPI/BDE aliases, ReportSmith connections, INI Files, Program Items, Window Groups, Files, and more... (ODBC Drivers are the next on the list).

The file to look for is YOUSEFUL.ZIP.

Component Design Tool

I am designing an application which enables users to create and modify components visually. This program would allow users to design the look of a control via visual painting tools (if appropriate) and would contain many useful pre-coded properies/methods to be plugged in. Furthermore, property, method, and event generation would be easy and visual, as would support for property editor dialogs.

I have no Beta release date, but a working prototype of the program should be operational by 17 July 1995. (This may be extended, depending on all things unpredictable) I would like to hear of any interest, suggestions, or comments. I will eventually need Beta testers (now is too early) but a later public release (probably in the form of standard/ professional or demo/professional versions) can be expected before too long (but expect a finished product for 1996). (I also need a name, any suggestions?). Please contact me at my preferred address below, I would love to hear from you:

Thank you very much,
