December meeting: Tamar Granor on event binding

Our next meeting will be next Tuesday, December 13 at 7 PM in Room 158, DeVry University, 1140 Virginia Drive, Fort Washington, PA. As usual, feel free to bring some dinner and arrive as early as 6:30 PM.

I’ll be speaking this month, presenting my Southwest Fox session “Bind Events for Better Applications.” Here’s the abstract:

At first glance, the BindEvent() function may seem unnecessary. After all, why bind to an event when you can just write code in the event's method?

In this session, we'll look at why BindEvent() and its cousins, the Access and Assign methods, are so valuable. Using examples drawn from real applications, we'll see how event binding lets you do things you couldn't otherwise do, and simplifies code for other tasks. We'll also talk about the difficulties involved in debugging code that uses event binding.
