Having recently made an almost successful transition from Delphi to Lazarus, I was looking forward to a more smooth redevelopment of my large application. Whilst in Delphi I utilized several TMS VCLs. The one that had the most flair for my users was the TADVTrackBar. I had it set up to really have a gorgeous user interface. Of course that VCL was not compatible with Lazarus, so I purchased the UI pack that had a newer replacement for TADVTrackBar. I thought it would be a straightforward set up to duplicate my original configuration of the TrackBar. It was not and now I am completely lost. I have attempted to use the UP pack developers’ guide. The problem is that I cannot correlate the parameters of the TMSFNCTrackBar with the parameters of the TADVTrackBar. I set several parameters in the TMSFNCTrackBar Object Inspector to various colors, believing that seeing their effect on the TMSFNCTrackBar would help me duplicate the set of parameters I was using on TADVTrackBar. That did not work. So I have three questions:
(1) Which TMSFNCTrackBar parameters have the same effect as the following TADVTrackBar? Are the following parameters equivalent?
I tried the following and only one of the parameters worked:
(this does color all of
the RMSFNCTrackBar except
for the slider area
(2) None of the other three work, nor does the code sample on page 87 of the TMS FNC UI Pack Developer’s Guide.
(3) If I am going about this in the wrong manner, please tell me how to properly proceed.
Thank you very much for any help you can provide to me.
