[archive] Using AcuGT Automation Server from Delphi

[Migrated content. Thread originally posted on 16 July 2004]

Hi All,

Is there any Delphi programmer (or a former one) out there that can help me with an AcuGt Automation Server issue?

Two years ago, a Delphi programmer helped me generating a Pascal file from the type library 'AcuGT.tlb' located in the acugt\bin directory.

At that time I didn't put too much attention to the issue, as this could be done running a tool from the Delphi's Menu -> Project -> Import Type Library... option. So I used the one that was supplied to me. Now I'm trying to do the same thing, but this time with the version 6.1, and I just get a less short file (11 KB) compared to the one that I used before (143 KB). The real surprise was when I tried to do the same thing for the old v5.2 acugt.tlb file and I got the same short file.

Basically all the ?OLE Server Proxy class declarations and definitions? are missing from my new generated Pascal file.

Is there any setting in Delphi that will prevent this tool from generating those function definitions?

Please find attached a copy of these two files. ?AcuGTObjects_TLB.pas? is the original file with all the definitions (143 KB) and the one named ?AcuGTObjects_TLB_Short.pas? is the one that gets now generated. They are inside the attached zip file.

Note: Of course the programmer that helped before is not accessible to me anymore.


Alfonso, AOD.

question: what are you trying to do?

I've been able to use delphi objects on AcuCobol forms, etc.
