Documentation

The downloaded zip folder of Pascal header files contains the compiled help file: Documentation\HLP\Object Pascal SDL Doc.chm. We found this very useful for parameters of routines and for tables of key values but the examples need some effort to get them to compile. The examples use MessageBox for output of messages so you need to add Windows to the uses section of any program that includes the sample code. In order to compile the code in Lazarus, use the compiler directive {$Apptype Delphi}.

Follow the links below for a program produced from sample code and for advice on the use of the help file.

Programming - a skill for life!
