Hi Aris,

Thanks for your advice.

I'll check out the chart tool, that should be useful in many cases.

On the games programming book, I'm afraid my hardware doesn't qualify (see below). Remember OWL?

I agree, they (who are they actually?) have almost stopped writing books some years ago. There is one rather recent book on Amazon: "C++ mit dem Borland C++Builder 2007: Einführung in den C++-Standard und die objektorientierte Windows-Programmierung" (2007), and though my German is pretty good, I don't buy computer books in any language but English as any other language renders a large portion of the contents useless. Imagine searching in a Dutch or German index for the word 'overloading' or any other term. Horrible.

Ouch! The vendor of that museum piece should be barred from using the internet for a thousand years at least.

My apologies, I never imagined sprite graphics would still be of interest today.

This forum post might be useful for your first contact with TChart.

An afterthought.

In case you have not yet explored it, there is plenty of code of all types in the C++Builder Developer's Journal.

The BCBCAQ section might be particularly useful to a newcomer.

Thanks Aris,

Yes I have found it and I am indeed browsing its contents. I was also thinking of getting the CD.
