Hi... where can I find some good delphi examples? for example, When I call a dialog box, then close it.. if I try to call it again, application sends an exception error. I'm freeing the dialog, so.. which may be the problem?

Thanks in advance

Can you include a snippet of code showing what you are doing when you make the call?  

I think sometimes you don't need to FREE the dialog, especially when it is being auto-created.

There you are the whole method that calles the dialog box:

***************************************************************

Procedure TEmulador.MnuSerialClick(Sender: TObject);
var S1      : string[2];
    S2      : string[7];
    ArchIni : TIniFile;

begin
  with TSetup.Create(Self) do
  ArchIni := TIniFile.Create( 'Monitor.ini' );
  try
    if Setup.ShowModal = 1 then
      begin
        str(Setup.ComPort.ItemIndex+1,S1);
        ArchIni.WriteString( 'Setup', 'Port', S1 );
        str(Setup.m_iBaudRate,S2);
        ArchIni.WriteString( 'Setup', 'BaudRate', S2 );
      end;
  finally
    ArchIni.Free;
    Setup.Free;
  end;
end;

***************************************************************


And these are the methods inside de unit controlling the box:


***************************************************************

procedure TSetup.FormCreate(Sender: TObject);
var S1          : string[2];
    S2          : string[7];
    P,Codigo    : Integer;
    B           : Longint;
    ArchIni     : TIniFile;

begin
  ArchIni := TInifile.Create('Monitor.ini');
  S1 := ArchIni.ReadString('Setup', 'Port', '2');
  val(S1,P,Codigo);
  if Codigo = 0 then
    ComPort.ItemIndex := P-1;
  S2 := ArchIni.ReadString('Setup', 'BaudRate', '19200');
  val(S2,B,Codigo);
  case B of
    110    : BaudRate.ItemIndex := 0;
    300    : BaudRate.ItemIndex := 1;
    600    : BaudRate.ItemIndex := 2;
    1200   : BaudRate.ItemIndex := 3;
    2400   : BaudRate.ItemIndex := 4;
    4800   : BaudRate.ItemIndex := 5;
    9600   : BaudRate.ItemIndex := 6;
    14400  : BaudRate.ItemIndex := 7;
    19200  : BaudRate.ItemIndex := 8;
    38400  : BaudRate.ItemIndex := 9;
    56000  : BaudRate.ItemIndex := 10;
    57600  : BaudRate.ItemIndex := 11;
    115200 : BaudRate.ItemIndex := 12;
  end;
  ArchIni.Free;

end;

procedure TSetup.BaudRateClick(Sender: TObject);
const
    BaudRates: array[ 0..12 ] of Longint =
    ( 110, 300, 600, 1200, 2400, 4800, 9600, 14400, 19200, 38400, 56000, 57600, 115200 );

begin
  if ( Sender is TRadioGroup ) then
    m_iBaudRate := BaudRates[ ( Sender as TRadioGroup ).ItemIndex ]
  else
    m_iBaudRate := -1;
end;

***************************************************************

Any help would be greatly appreciated...

Thanks in advance

Do you have a way to send me a demo with the source code included?

My e-mail is:  knowltonfamily@yahoo.com

I've had trouble with this in the past (creating dialogs at run-time and then having them crash when I close / open them again) and I know part of the problem has to do with whether Delphi is auto-creating the form or not.  This can be found under the OPTIONS for the Delphi project.  The OPTIONS button is right next to the Add File and Delete File buttons.

Hi skel!

 Look at delphi deli website.

 There is a search feature which connects you to chami's place for delphi examples.

Regards, Zif.

Hi,

The problem is in the first procedure you listed above. After the "with" on the first line, you need a "begin" so that the rest of the procedure is inside the "with". Currently only the next line is enclosed in the "with". Better still, get rid of that nasty "with" and declare a local variable for the dialog called "SetupDialog" or something. Note that "Setup" is a global instance of the dialog.
Also, make sure that TSetup is not autocreated. Go into Project | Options to check.
Also, you should never Free a dialog, you should only ever Release it. Read the help for the reason why.
The code should look like:


Procedure TEmulador.MnuSerialClick(Sender: TObject);
var S1      : string[2];
    S2      : string[7];
    ArchIni : TIniFile;
    SetupDialog: TSetup;
begin
  SetupDialog := TSetup.Create(Application);
  ArchIni := TIniFile.Create( 'Monitor.ini' );
  try
    if SetupDialog.ShowModal = 1 then
      begin
        str(SetupDialog.ComPort.ItemIndex+1,S1);
        ArchIni.WriteString( 'Setup', 'Port', S1 );
        str(SetupDialog.m_iBaudRate,S2);
        ArchIni.WriteString( 'Setup', 'BaudRate', S2 );
      end;
  finally
    ArchIni.Free;
    SetupDialog.Release;
  end;
end;
