    How to present error message in login screen

    Thank you for your reply. However, my problem remains. In the code shown below, I still get to the MessageDlg line and the main program is invoked (which causes a problem, since the account object is used in the creation of the main form), the message isn't presented until the main form is created. Procedure TUniLoginForm1.LoginBtnClick(Sender: TObject); Begin ModalResult := mrNone; If AccountExtant(EmailEntry.Text, PassEntry.Text) Then Begin UniMainModule.Account := LoadAccount(EmailEntry.Text, PassEntry.Text); ModalResult := mrOK; Close; End Else messagedlg('The account or the password is in error', mtWarning, [mbOK]); End;

    How to present error message in login screen

    This was my last attempt: I had a panel called "MessageArea" with a label called "MessageText". I was putting the message text into MessageText and making MessageArea visible (It was not visible at the start). The trouble with this approach was that nothing stopped the loop (as a real dialog would). I also tried MessageDlg and even UniSF's SweetAlert, None of which worked (they did not display). (I am about to conclude that I should bypass the login screen altogether, main my own (Main) and use secondary created screens as to process the application. My current code follows: Procedure TUniLoginForm1.CancelBtnClick(Sender: TObject); Begin ModalResult := mrCancel; Close End; Procedure TUniLoginForm1.CreateBtnClick(Sender: TObject); Var CreateOK: Boolean; Begin CreateOK := False; While Not CreateOK Do Begin If (Email.Text <> '') And (Password.Text <> '') And (FName.Text <> '') And (LName.Text <> '') Then Begin Try UniMainModule.Account := CreateAccount(Email.Text, Password.Text, FName.Text, LName.Text, 0); ModalResult := mrOK; Close; Except On E: PlErrAcctAExist Do Begin MessageText.Text := 'That account already exists'; MessageArea.Visible := True; End; End; End; End; End; Procedure TUniLoginForm1.LoginBtnClick(Sender: TObject); Var LoginOK: Boolean; Begin LoginOK := False; While Not LoginOK Do Begin Try UniMainModule.Account := LoadAccount(EmailEntry.Text, PassEntry.Text); LoginOK := True; Except On E: PlErrAcctNF Do LoginOK := False; On E: PlErrBadPass Do LoginOK := False; End; If LoginOK Then Begin ModalResult := mrOK; Close; End Else Begin MessageText.Text := 'The account or the password is in error'; MessageArea.Visible := True; End; End; End; Procedure TUniLoginForm1.MessageCancelBtnClick(Sender: TObject); Begin ModalResult := mrCancel; Close; End; Procedure TUniLoginForm1.TryAgainBtnClick(Sender: TObject); Begin MessageArea.Visible := False End;
  5. I have a login screen that serves two purposes: To login OR to create a new account. The problem I have is in trying to present messages when the user enters incorrect information or tries to create an already existing account. I've tried several methods of presenting the messages (and perhaps giving them a second chance) without success. How do you do this? A picture of my login screen is attached.

    Survey: Features you want to see in version 1.0

    Let me preface my requests with the following comment: uniGui is the best product for Delphi for building web apps that I have seen. Bar none. I'm really excited about this tool and hope it grows and grows. Thank you for a wonderful tool! The two most important features for the future (since you have already released 1.0) is as follows: More documentation on the component interfaces. (I know that is a big ticket item that is labor intensive). The ability to handle the back button on the browser. Case in point: Trello, which is a single page app, nonetheless will honor the back button (and return either to the previous configuration of trello) or the previous web page (whatever it was). But, here is the point: If you use the forward button on the browser, trello appears, having maintained the state the user last left is. Apps like this are my competition and my users will expect to use that button. More ability / information to add third party components. This is one of the hallmarks of Delphi. Many have decreased much development time by using DevExpress or TMS components (among others). I realize, that at the moment, there may only be one (Ext JS) vendor, but I think there may be more once the number of users of uniGui gets large enough (which I expect it will).

    Missing some visible components in Delphi IDE

    There doesn't seem to be a visible component for this. If you look at the example in mdemo, you will find that it is a form with AlignmentControl = uniAlignmentClient which has a TUniContainerPanel with the layout set to accordion which contains other UniPanels with their layout set to fit. And, of course, each of the sub-panels contain the tabs and other controls you see in the example. Hope this helps.

    Can't install Tokyo

    Thank you! That was the problem. I downloaded the incorrect version. I am installed. Thanks again.

    Can't install Tokyo

    It still shows all the versions of Delphi, from 2006 to 10.1 Berlin - 64-bit, none of which I have installed. I ONLY have 10.2 Tokyo installed. It is not shown in the list. I am unable to install. I can re-install the trial version. It shows 10.2 in the list.

    Can't install Tokyo

    I selected Tokyo (only) and received an error. Uninstalled and now the installer will not present tokyo as an option for install. This is on Windows 10 and I was trying to install Professional 1.0.

    _ffc_ is not defined.

    Thanks. I uninstalled and re-installed and now am fine. I must have looked at the trial some time in the past and had forgotten about it. Thanks for you help. Happily evaluating.

    _ffc_ is not defined.

    This is the first time I have tried the product. However, I will remove the trail and re-install and try again. I will post the results here.

    _ffc_ is not defined.

    After installation of the current trial, and trying to run the demo "mdemo", I get the following error: _ffc_ is not defined _ffc_(O2B);ajaxRequest(OB4,"resize",["w="+OB4.getWidth(),"h="+OB4.getHeight()]);alert('Thank you for evaluating uniGUI.');if(Ext.Msg.isVisible())Ext.Msg.toFront(); Obviously, I made an error in the install. Has anyone know how I can resolve this? I am running Windows 10 with Delphi 10.2 Toyko.
  14. When I install the .99 version, there seems to be no effect on my copy of Delphi. The project wizard does not appear in the list, nor does the package show when Delphi is loading. I am running XE7 on Windows 7 (Ultimate). Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
