About our Newsgroups
Groups
The UK-BUG newsgroups are for members only. Used to exchange ideas, work, for finding answers to questions (both technical and business related) and for arranging informal get togethers, the newsgroups are becoming one of our best assets.

The following is an example message taken from our Delphi list, thanks to Ron Szumski and Jon Austin.

Question:
During the last few weeks, my Delphi 5 IDE has seemed to have a life of its own - the component palette just did not want to stay where I put it. I had Archaeopteryx installed but have now installed GExperts, but neither seem to control the beast.

To make matters worse, the component palette has now completely disappeared. Selecting multiline component palette simply causes the coolbar to fill my desktop - but still no sight of the component palette.

The infuriating thing (one of many!) is that everything is hunky-dory in Delphi 4. Can someone please help me?

Answer:
Its done this to me before, once I reinstalled the Delphi registry entries (install option on the CD) and the second and third times it did it, I manually edited the registry to remove the settings for the component palette, causing it to revert to its default..

delete the value "Palettebar" in the key
\hkey_current_user\software\borland\Delphi\5.0\Toolbars

and this should reset the palette for you..

if this doesn't work, then you may have actually lost the contents of the palette, which will require you to reinstall the registry settings off the CD..

hope this helps..

Response:
Thanks a million, Jon. Deleting the registry entry worked a treat.
