VCL: Getting user-input with TAdvEdit
The VCL component TEdit is as basic as programming with Delphi can get. Almost every Delphi book starts with a Hello World application that involves a button and an edit control that shows ‘Hello World’ after clicking the button. Most certainly, TEdit gives you all the functionality to need in order to ask the user for input. However, offering an easy way for users to enter numbers, floats, monetary values, specifying masks, aligning values, etc. involves a lot of manual coding. Further, transfering user-input into a different data type than String is somewhat error-prone. With TAdvEdit TMS Software offers a control that you can make use of to avoid all these common pitfalls.
The following video gives a detailed, hands-on tutorial on TAdvEdit.
