Using Borland C++ Builder and MapX.
Why won't C++ code written with Borland seem to work with MapX?
There are numerous things that need to be done in order to make MapX components function in this environment. Fortunately, a user frequents the MapX has posted a "how to" on his web page to make MapX work with Borland C++ Builder. MapInfo does not officially endorse this, however is providing it as a resource above and beyond what is provided with the product.
The actual URL at the bottom has changed, this is the latest one as of this date (11-8-2001):
Text of author himself in quotes:
"In the interest of helping the MapX and C++ Builder community (and those who use both, such as myself) I have set up a section of my web site to house articles I have written concerning topics in both areas. MapX users will be most interested in:
· Using MapX with C++ Builder - It's not that hard once you understand a few basic concepts.
· DataBinding in C++ - A C++ Builder example of ODBC data binding and Unbound data binding, which can also be helpful for regular C++ programmers. Also, a performance measure of the speed of binding in MapX.
· Tables, Datasets, and Layers - what's the difference, and how do they work together to make a visible map?
While those who use CBuilder and MapX may be also interested in:
· Using MFC (Microsoft Foundation Classes) with C++ Builder - Header file changes.
There are many C++ Builder tips and tricks, including how to write your own data aware property editor, how to use the TProgressBar class, and much more. Also, this is the home of the new C++ Builder Programmer's webring, and it links to a number of sites with excellent C++ Builder content."
