Movie #40 - Changing How Fields are Displayed

In this movie we look at how we can change the way data is displayed in data aware controls, without changing the data.  Specifically we look at the TField.OnGetText event and other TField properties that control the way data is displayed. This video is nice and short (about 3 minutes) and you can watch it here.

Movie #39 - XML Data Binding

In this movie we look at using an XML file within Delphi.  To make this very easy we take advantage of the DTD (Document Type Definition) for the XML file, and use the XML Data Binding Wizard in Delphi to generate a whole bunch of code for us.  You can watch the video here.  It's a bit under 9 minutes long

Movie #38 - Charting Jpeg Compression

In this Delphi programming tutorial we look at using TeeChart (TChart) to produce a graph of Jpeg quality verses file size.  This video is about 12 minutes long and you can watch it here.

Movie #37 - For Loop Ramblings

This is a really short video where we compare for..to and for..in loops to iterate over an array.  It is 5 minutes long and you can watch it here.

Movie #36 - HyperLink Labels

In this 6 minute video we take a look at converting a humble label into a HyperLink.  You can watch it here.

Movie #35 - DataSnap (Part 1)

In this movie we write our first DataSnap application.  It is a basic two tier (Client/Server) application and yet another rendition of the BioLife example.  This movie is a bit over 8 minutes long and you can watch it here.

Algorithms #3 - Selection Sort

This time we take a look at Selection Sort, yet another badly performing sorting algorthim.  This is my third live action video, however my brother wanted his camera back so I'll probably go back to making Camtasias for awhile.

Algorithms #2 - Insertion Sort

This is my second video on sorting algorithms and this time we are going to look at insertion sort.  Insertion sort is certainly a step up in performance from bubble sort, but it's still pretty poor.  I demonstrate this one using cards again.  It's another short one at three and a quarter minutes.  You can watch it on youtube or...

Algorithms #1 - Bubblesort

This is my first "live action" video.  In this short video we take a look at the bubblesort sorting algorithm. It's one of the worst performing sorting algorithms, but it is also the easiest to explain. We also look at bubblesorts cousin shakersort.

Movie #34 - Parameters

Sometimes the easiest of topics make for the hardest of movies.  In this movie we take a look at the various ways of passing parameters, I've probably not explained things as clearly as I could but I hope it is informative all the same.  Watch it here, it's a bit over eight and a half minutes long.
