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.

This movie is about 8 minutes long and covers the Anchors and Constraints properties of VCL controls in Delphi.  These properties are used to control how things behave on your forms when you resize them.  This follows nicely on from Alignment and Margins.  Watch the movie here

This movie covers two vcl properites in Delphi: Align and Margins.  Using these you can control how your forms behave when resized.  You can watch the movie here.


This movie focuses on TListbox but does use TAction and TButton a little.  This is mostly an introductory level movie for newbies and runs for about 22 minutes. I had to split the video into two parts due to a 10 minute limit on YouTube.  Part 1 and Part 2

In this movie we continue to look at features of SQL, in particular numeric functions and the group by clause. I have also uploaded this movie to youtube. Again I've used a huge font so that it is still readable at 320x240.

In this guide you'll get an introduction to basic SELECT queries. I've used a really large font for the application, I've done this so that I could put the video on YouTube and have people still able to read the SQL statements and results, which you can watch here. I had to speed up the YouTube video to fit it under the 10 minute limit (it's 6% faster).

Here we use VMWare to install FreeDOS onto a virtual machine and install and run Turbo Pascal 5.5 (for those of us who can remember back that far).  Click Here to view the movie
