Comments:Enjoy your site - contains many valuable tips and insights Struggling to master printing a TreeView - have downloaded your TPrintDIB component, but don't understand how to connect the TreeView via a TBitmap so that the Treeview can (successfully) PaintTo the bitmap prior to sending the bitmap to the TPrintDIB. A small sample of code how to do this would be very welcome ! Thanks

Comments:an excellent site. After spending weeks looking through Delphi sites, I stumbled upon what I really want - a BCB site. I'll follow the web ring for more, but the only teensy criticism I can make of your site is that it doesn't have a links section where you've done the hard work for me :-) Best wishes & keep up the good work.

Comments:Well what can i say. Searched about two days to find such a site with explanations, examples and what is most important for me with the source-code for C++Builder. I am new in c++-programming and comming from Java, which in my opinion is one of the easiest programminglanguages, it became harder and harder transfering my knowledge from Java to C++ with the c++-Builder that diffrent to the JBuilder (Well seems to be the language to). So I found what I always wanted in here. Not all the stuff but

Comments:Nice to see a site for C++Builder, not too much around (seems like mostly Delphi or Microsoft). I think you have some good controls and code samples here to learn from and put to use. The company I work for has allowed me to use Builder to create and distribute Banking related applications all over the country. However, we were recently bought by a larger company and they are pressing us to switch to Microsoft VC++ (Ouch!). It would sure take a lot of conversion to switch all the VCL stuff (

Comments:A fantastic site ! I would like to propose a detailed and well structure example for beginners - like me. This is missing almost everywhere - in books, web-sites, tutorials and son on. The example should explain step-by-step HOW a not to simple program is developed. I think this can be developed by a real expert within one hour. So - what do you think about such a project on your website? Best regards - Ralph Reuhl, Germany
