functions in multithread applications

I wondered if using functions at the same time from threads can cause
errors. I'm asking this question because sometimes i got "Invalid floating
point operation" from MilliSecondsBetween function. Do i need to use
synchronization for calling this function what happens if two threads enter
a function at the same time
As my second question is GetMem function in Delphi ThreadSafe

The closest you can get is a shell hook (SetWindowsHookEx, type WH_SHELL) but hooks are generally things one should avoid (badly written hooks can crash Windows) and it would only work for applications that have a window. -- Peter Below (TeamB) Don't be a vampire (, use the newsgroup archives : , Ahmadi wrote: > The problem solved, if anyone have the same problem (my hook > problem), you must define callback function in share code segment or > define it in a DLL as export function, then loadLibrary(yourDll) and > then retrieve your ProcAdress(yourFunctionName) then pass the address > to setWindowHookEx, it will work fine. Search for thunk technique, is a trick for APIs callback, it can offer access to your current instance stuffs and can keep the code running on your system scope. -- []'s Gilberto Saraiva

Delphi 2007 Change applications language to Italian?

Hi , I could do with a little help !! I have writeen a standard delphi VCL 32 bit application with Delphi 2007 (Codegear RAD Studio) and I have now been informed that the application may be sold in Italy. The application is obviously all in English. Is there an easy way that I can set the application to a different language at start up so that all labels, buttons, captions edit and memo boxes will display in italian and when the user enters in information it is saved in italian. The application will only be run on Windows XP service pack 2 or higher or Vista 32bit.
