SSI Solution Pack II



This package of nine brand new components have been designed by our programmers to give your applications advanced capabilities expected of contemporary applications.

  spAnimatedImage. The most natural way to add animation to a Delphi form is to use an ImageList component, an Image component, and a Timer. We packaged the ImageList, the Timer, configuration options, and some expertize necessary to improve performance into the spAnimatedImage component. Just provide an ImageList with your images and enjoy the animation.

spAudioWav. How do you access your sound cards? We do that using the low level spAudioWav control. It allows to enumerate and select audio devices, record and play WAV files or raw audio data, and construct audio in code on the lowest level possible combining sine waves. Just look into one of our samples to find out how easy is it to convert text into Morse signal. Being low level, spAudioWav allows to examine the controls Windows associates with a sound card and both retrieve and set their properties. In essence, this allows you to write your own mixer or a replacement for the standard Windows Volume Control.

spBlinkingLed. While nothing prevents you from using the spAnimatedImage component to imitate a LED, the better solution is to use the spBlinkingLed component. The LED images are built in and all you need is to specify colors for ON, Off, and Blink states. The LED may have associated text and sounds.

spComPort. Applications that monitor or control real-world devices and instrumentation often connect via an RS-232 port, that is, a serial comport on the computer. This component allows you to send and receive data through any real comport or USB virtual comport.

spCPU. How would you like to be able to monitor and display your computers CPU activity, just like the task manager does? Mission critical applications should periodically check the health of the computer they run on, and with spCPU they can determine if the CPU is overloaded and even determine which specific application or service is "hogging" the machine. But wait,there's more! spCPU allows you to monitor the CPU usage of remote machines, either on your network LAN, or remote machines over the internet! SSP II comes with a ready-to-use network administration tool that graphically displays CPU usage of the local computer and any other computer on the network or internet--a super Task Manager.

spHTTPServer. Even if this component is not the lightest multi-threaded HTTP server possible, it should be pretty close. You can either work with familiar request and response objects or handle the raw TCP data directly. If you tend to develop the client side of your RIAs first, you may find this component handy as the server stub.

spTCPServer. This component is the basis for the spHTTPServer and provides the multi-threaded TCP server. It is all you need to establish easy and light weight TCP/IP communication between processes or unravel the low level details normally hidden from you by traditional Web development frameworks.

spUpdater. Would you like a way for your application, once shipped to the customer or user, to be able to update itself? What is known as "Live Update?" You can do just that with the spUpdater component. Once spUpdater is dropped on the main form of your application, when your application launches it first checks in to a remote server that you configure to see if there is a newer version of your program available. If there is, you can configure the application to update itself automatically, or with permission of the user. You only have to maintain the latest version of your program in one directory on one server, and every instance of your product running anywhere on the internet will automatically update itself. Cool!

spVersionInfo. Every Windows application, including those you write, has tons of version information embedded into the executable file. If your application has an About menu choice or button, you now can stuff lots of information about your application into the resulting dialog window. Version number, of course, but also company name, description, copyright and trademarks--all the data you can put into the Version Info tab of Project|Options of the IDE.

spVideo. If your application requires video input, this component does the job for you. Drop an instance of spVideo on your form, and you have an instant window receiving and displaying video from any Windows video source, such as a webcam. Built into the component is the ability to mirror, flip, color-invert, or grayscale the image, and to detect motion. SSP II comes with a sample application you can use right out of the box as a security system to log and alert scenes in which motion is detected.

spVolumeControl. With the spAudioWav component you can do virtually anything with any audio signal, but what if all you need is to control the volume? Our spVolumeControl does exactly that. It allows to move the slider of the Windows standard Volume Control in code without reaching all the way to the Task Bar with the mouse.
