Product Description


This title includes book & CD. Starting with a detailed description of Delphi and C++ languages, this book covers the essential topics such as conditions, loops, strings and arrays, procedures and functions, file I/O, and pointers and gives an introduction to OOP before venturing into the world of VCL. The book then shows how to build applications using the VCL framework. The majority of the material is presented in Delphi language, which makes the material automatically Win32 and .NET compatible, but it doesn't forget C++ developers, also showing how to build VCL applications using the C++ language. The third part of the book covers various component building topics - how to build new components from scratch, customize existing components, and create advanced components.Finally, the book covers .NET programming and shows how to build both VCL.NET and pure .NET applications using Delphi for .NET, as well as how to build .NET applications using the C# language. This title is intended for levels: beginner, intermediate and advanced.

Good Book for Beginners 19 Feb. 2006
By Charles A. Appel - Published on
Format: Paperback
There haven't been all that many new Delphi books in recent years so it was pleasant to find this one. This book appears to be aimed at new Delphi programmers and it does a pretty good job of bringing them up to speed. Advanced Delphi programmers will probably not find a great many items of interest, but they might find a few. I've have used all ten versions of Delphi (and most versions of Turbo Pascal) and have about one hundred books in my library on Delphi. So, while most of the information was not new to me, I did run across one or two little gems I had not seen before.

I'm glad I bought it.

Good book for its purpose 18 Feb. 2006
By Brandon Staggs - Published on
Format: Paperback
If you're already an advanced Delphi programmer, you're not likely to find a whole lot "groundbreaking" in here. But if you're new to Delphi, or just want to brush up on a few areas you may have missed, this is a good book.

Inside Delphi 2006 1 Mar. 2006
By D. Nagle - Published on
Format: Paperback
At first glance, the title would lead one to believe that this book will reveal an abundance of knowledge pertaining to the latest version of Delphi called Delphi 2006.

The only revelation that becomes quite apparent, within first two chapters, is that of the title.

The book contains a synopsis of previous versions of Delphi, from Delphi 1 to the present. The silence is finally interupted in the last few chapters when a miniscule amount of pertinent information is forthcoming about .net funtionality and Delphi 2006.

If you are an ardent Delphi programmer, SAVE your money.

Rosetta Book 8 Jan. 2007
By Trasd - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I know Assembly, C, and C++, and until I read this book, did not know any Pascal. I got the book mainly to help me with Borland Developer Studio 2006. The last version I purchased from Borland was C++ Builder 4.0 and I wanted (in hard copy so I could read away from the computer) to understand the differences between the compilers. The book is written mostly for Pascal programmers, but it does a decent job covering C++.

A lot of the programs, utilities, and examples I see from various sources are in Pascal. I decided now was as good a time to learn a new language as any. For my situation, this book was the perfect choice. I could read the C++ code then use that understanding to help me learn Pascal, all while becoming familiar with Borland's new environment.

The book itself is fairly well written, though many parts are difficult to follow. It is not the right book for a new programmer - but compared to other programming books, it is a gem. If you buy this book, expect to spend time tweaking some of the examples to make them work, and don't expect to be told everything you need to complete the lessons. With that said, there was nothing I could not make work or figure out with a little thinking - which actually turned out to be a good thing because I learned quite a bit. There are also many good Windows programming techniques and ideas, which are quite valuable themselves.

My overall impression? All serious Borland BSD users should have this book on their shelf.
