We are looking for a program in delphi

which  sees that a new order is in the "new order" folder and then starts the "Import Order" procedure that . Can this be done in Delphi ? We want this to be as simple as possible for our programmers.

when we receive  new order, we need to post the Order Acknowledgement on a Website. Eventually we will send e-mail notifications, but for our first round we just need to post the Acknowledgements to the broker’s web site.

Pls help!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!111

    Accepted Solution

    you have to choises:
    - check the "new order" folder periodically (most simple and ... unoptimized way) but since you want it to be "every few hours) maybe this is better then the next:
    - monitor the folder. check this component: you will get notified every time a file/folder is changed. you should be able to filter events as needed

    If you can provide more information about the problem maybe we can help? I assume every time an order is placed, the order details are written into a directory into say a text file?
