Synopsis

This is a concise reference manual for using 32-bit Windows API functions in the Delphi 3 development environment. It describes the core Win32 API functions, and includes chapters on window creation, window information retrieval, input functions, file input and output, and registry manipulation. Each chapter is filled with working examples, with each API function used as an example to demonstrate its functionality. The CD includes all the projects and example codes found in the book, bonus programs, shareware, freeware, and a help file containing every function description from the book. Of particular importance is the inclusion of evluation versions of many retail software products, including Demoshield 5.2 Evaluation Edition, InstallShiled 5 Professional Evaluation Version, Skyline Tools Evaluation Suite, and a complete free retail version of PackageForTheWeb.

Autorenkommentar

The mission of the book.
The Tomes of Delphi series are reference guides for using the Windows 32 bit API in Delphi. As such, it is not a tutorial, and is not meant to be read from start to finish. There are over 200 examples in the book, and every API function covered is used in an example. This is not an all inclusive reference manual; indeed, such a thing would span several books. However, it does include the most commonly used API functions. Although Delphi encapsulates *most* of the Windows API, programming at the API level gives the developer more power and control, and this book will show several examples of how the Delphi developer can use the Windows API to achieve the maximum amount of power and control. Delphi developers writing powerful, robust applications that need the power of the Windows API should find this book a must have reference source.

This is an excellent reference on the Windows API for the mature Delphi professional. Much better explanations and examples than what is provided with the Win API help file. Unlike other WinAPI books on the market, this one is 100% pure Delphi, with all examples and other references using the Delphi types and Pascal syntax.

One of the most valuable features is the corrected function imports. Quite a few API calls are incorrectly imported in Delphi, but this book tells you what they are and gives the correct syntax.

This is not a how-to cookbook. It doesn't spend much time explaining what the API is or why you would want to use it. But it does give top-notch documentation on the most commonly used functions. Hundreds of examples are provided. The only complaint I have is that the examples are not always very realistic. They show how to call the function but don't give great ideas about when you would want to use it.

If you are a professional Delphi programmer, this is a must-have book for your reference library. I've needed a book like this for years. Now I can't wait for the Graphical API book to come out!

Not for the faint-hearted. This book is aimed toward advanced users. Those with less experience and knowledge of Windows programming will not find the book useful, but those who wish to squeeze out every ounce of energy from a Delphi/Windows application will find this book very valuable. In addition to excellent information, they get a big plus in that all of their example code WORKS. There is no reason to jump to their web page to download the "working" version, and no "sorry, I forgot to include some files on the CD" stuff. If there is, I sure haven't run into it yet. Without the book, you can spend 5 minutes tracking down the correct syntax for callback functions (and then test to ensure it works), or spend 30 seconds looking it up in this book and getting quality documentation. I don't have time to waste; the book is for me.

This book is a must for any serious Delphi developer. The API has been covered before but not for Delphi and this in-depth. It seems like the authors made a point of making sure this book was correct in every aspect. I am the head of the development department for my company. I plan on making sure that everyone of my Delphi developers has this book. This book will work for any 32bit Delphi application. If you don't have this book then you are not a serious Delphi Developer. I applaud the entire Tomes staff for an excellent job on the book. The only problem with the book is the CD. If you contact Wordware they will send you out a new CD. They also have the missing items from the CD on there webpage. I also suggest checking out John Ayres webpage. It is a great place for Delphi links.

I'm always embarrassed when I let good reviews of a book pursuade me to buy it, sight unseen, and it proves to be a turkey. Such was the case with this one. I read some good reviews on the Web about it, then clicked a couple of buttons and ordered it online without having really looked at it in a store. What a mistake this turned out to be! This book is a mere reproduction of MSDN and the Inprise/Corel docs. I didn't find the example code helpful or even fresh -- it appears to either be copied from MSDN or directly translated from it. It's a hefty book, but, unfortunately, it's real value to the developer is correspondingly light.

Which book do I refer to more than any other? Which book helps me solve more problems than any other? Which book serves me better than any newsgroup (most of the time)?
The Tomes of Delphi 3.
I must concur with other reviews I've read. If you are into the Windows API then this book is a must-have. It doesn't cover everything in the API, but more than 90% of what I need to know is in this book. I seriously wouldn't get my job done as quickly without it.
I am eagerly awaiting their new WIN32 Multimedia API book!
In the meantime, get this book!

The examples shown in this book are of little more value than those found in MSDN. They're simplistic, strawman examples that you don't need a book to figure out. Moreover, the coverage of the API is incomplete. The Shell interface, for example, should be covered in depth -- it isn't. Worse yet, the writing is very bad. I've never read such boring, lackluster prose. The authors show no noteworthy ability for making difficult concepts easy to grasp -- a must for the able technical writer. I recommend that you get Delphi Unleashed instead.

I have to admit that before I bought this book I was completely clueless of the Win32 API... after a few days of using it I understood many of the concepts that revolve around Delphi and the Win32.
A lot of what's printed in the book is copied directly from the Win32 help file, which is pretty disappointing considering those pages could have been used for examples or undocumented features.
If you want to learn how Delphi is linked to the Win32, this is definitely the book to use. I wonder about the 2nd one... :)

After checking out the book for couple hours in the Book store. I realized why some one would want to create a simple Window by writing extensive API code, which takes about 15 lines, when you can do it in delphi by visually creating it (Chapter 1). I was hoping they would cover Windows Messages as opposed to APIs which Borland takes care of them with their wrappers. I personally I find this book neither helpful nor informative at all.
