In this Delphi tutorial we are going to look at how to take advantage of the OnDrawColumnCell event on the TDBGrid component.  In particular we are going to examine how to make every second row a different colour (Sky Blue) and how we can change the appearance of the text depending on the data.  This video is just under 10 minutes and you can watch it here

PS. Sky Blue is not compulsory (and perhaps not even recommended)

In this movie we look at pasting images from the clipboard that were generated in Word and The GiMP.  We also take our first look at making macros in the Delphi IDE.  My voice still hasn't fully recovered from having the flu, but I hope the content of this video makes my voice worth listening to.  This movie is almost 11 minutes long and you can watch it here.

This is the fourth part in our series on SQL.  In this guide we cover the SQL Insert statement.  This movie is less than 3 minutes long.  Watch it here.  And yes, I still had the flu while recording this one.

In this guide on SQL we look at the Update and Delete statements.  This movie is just shy of 6 minutes and it will help if you watch the other two movies on SQL first.  Watch it Here.

In this Delphi programming tutorial we look at using the ScaleBy function to increase and decrease the size of controls and their children.  We also examine a method for doing resolution independent forms.  This movie is about six and a half minutes long and you can watch it here

Love it (there is bound to be someone) or hate it, the with statement is here to stay - and many would prefer it to stay away.  I'm somewhat ambivalent and use it if it suits me on the day.  In this movie we'll see an example of using the with statement, and an example of somewhat unexpected consequences.  This movie is a bit under 8 minutes long.

In this Delphi training movie we'll be looking at events, in particular what to do with the sender parameter and the basics of using the "as" and "is" operators.  To watch this video click here.

This movie is just over 16 minutes long.  The audio quality is not so hot in this one (I'll be more careful in future).

Delphi controls have both an owner and a parent, what's the difference?  Find out in Owner vs. Parent.  This movie is 7 minutes long.

In this movie you'll see an example of using the Autosize property on a form.  We'll use it to automatically adjust the size of a form in response to changes in it's controls.  Watch the movie here.  This film is nice and short at 6 minutes.

Sometimes the Anchors and Align properties just don't cut the mustard for aranging controls on panels and forms in response to resizing.  This is not a problem as there is the OnResize event.  You can use this event for many reasons, but in this movie we want to adjust the size of controls.  This movie is about 7 minutes long and you can watch it here.
