Twitter – up and going…

You can now follow us on twitter. Either it will be really interesting or really boring. Time will tell!

Office closure information

JED Software will be closed on the following days over Christmas and New Years. This means sales won’t be processed and emails will not be responded to on these dates.

We thank our returning and new customers in 2008 and we’re looking forward to 2009 – when some new products will be announced.

Delphi 2009 support

All components and IDE experts will have Delphi 2009 support.

Most should be available early next week, email me if you have any questions.

I’ve also got a couple of new IDE experts that I’ve been using for about eight months now, although I am unsure whether these will be released.

QC Plus – Next Update

I’m looking at releasing a small update to QC Plus in a few weeks. If you have a bug or “feature” that you find particularly annoying, please let me know and I’ll see about fixing it. While you could leave issue anonymously in the comments of this blog, I’d prefer you either add a QC report for it or email me directly.

I’ve already fixed a few things in preparation but need some motivation to actually put a release together 😉

QC Plus home


Folks, comments to my blog are moderated. If you wish to comment on an older post and want me to reply – please include your email. I certainly won’t publish the comment (that includes a private email address) under any circumstances.

Also if you have an issue with a utility I have released, saying that “XYZ” didn’t run correctly is not really helping. At least send me a screenshot. My email address is available in the Profile Page and I endevour reply to every email I get.

New Host – Site5

This morning I changed hosts to a company called Site5.

They offer a very good value plan with many features. If you sign up before Christmas you also get a discount on the already competitive price.

If you are thinking about updating your host, then consider Site5.

My previous plan only allowed for 50 meg of disk space. With Site5 I now get 750GB of disk space.

Expect a few more videos in the future!

JSDialog – 1.0.043 Update

If you haven’t received the TJSDialog 1.0.043 update by now, it is because your email host has rejected the email. Please contact me directly to get this solved!

You need this version installed before you can begin using TJSEditDialog.

TJSEditDialog Update
All orders were sent last week. I’m just doing the necessary web page changes before the official announcement.

JSEditDialog – Preview

You can now download a video which previews the new TJSEditDialog component. TJSEditDialog is a descendant of TJSDialog which adds edit functionality.

Think of replacements for InputBox and InputQuery but heaps better. The download is just under 15 meg in WMV format. It was about 35meg in flash format.

Created with the new version of Camtasia which has some nice new features.

While not officially released you can preorder. It does require a registered TJSDialog license.

Purchase the TJSDialog Pack for 80 EUR – Share*it!
Purchase just TJSEditDialog for 40 EUR (existing TJSDialog customers only) – Share*it!

NEW: ActionManager Style – VISTA

Well I’ve been sitting on this style for about 6 or 7 months now and I’ve decided to share it.

This is a style the mimics the Microsoft Windows Vista menu style in Notepad and WordPad (amongst other applications). This style includes a menu bar with a gradient applied and menu items, sub menus are positioned different to previous menu styles.

Here is an example of the style in action:

The cost will be 10 Euros and payment will be via paypal (or can be arranged by other means if necessary).

I’ll create a webpage with a downloadable demo app and post here when done.

A couple more blog posts still to come today…

New Delphi Blogger

Sebastian Modersohn has started blogging here.

Definitely worth checking out (so far he’s posted a few tips and tricks). You’ll find that Sebastian is a level 2 QualityCentral Sysop – so be nice. He might even open a QC report for you ;-).
