Dolphin Smalltalk v. Smalltalk MT
We have pretty much settled on Dolphin as the Smalltalk implementation
of choice (the decision finally came down to Dolphin or MT). But MT
does have a couple of features that are useful and productive, and I
was would like to know if perhaps the functionality already exists in
Dolphin, but maybe not so straightforward.
1. Concerning the embedding of an ActiveX component in a view, MT
offers a simple way to execute the primary verb of a control. I can't
seem to find that funtionality in Dolphin. I would like to use
Codejock's ActiveX-based UI controls: The Command...Icons for Dolphin Smalltalk Applications
I'm always searching for Icons which do match Dolphin's "Theme". I'm
willing to pay for good quality stock icons (and already did for some
bad looking ones :-( ) but recently recently found a very good match
here which is "free": http://nuovext.pwsp.net/
This icon set is a very good match for Dolphin and I use them in some of
my apps with very good feedback so far.
An example screen shot can be found here:
U...Why Smalltalk? Why Dolphin?
Is there a document or video which addresses the questions above? Seems
to me I saw something on youtube regarding the first, showing how you
can inspect EVERYTHING as it runs.

...Closing the application Powered by Dolphin Smalltalk
I'm having an irregular problem closing a pair of application recently
The thing is when you close the main window expecting that the program
to be closed and it corresponding OS process.
A) In one case the window closes and the process is still alive (looking
in the Windows's task manager).
B) In other case it happends only sometimes, I mean, sometimes close the
window AND the process (like you allways want to), and sometimes only the
main window leaving the process alive.
C) In the case that allways was leaving the process ali...Dolphin Smalltalk X6 Application starts very slowly
I'm new in Dolphin Smalltalk X6, not in Smalltalk.
When I start the application by clicking the generated image after
installation, it takes 30 seconds or 1 minute to start on my P4/3.4GHz
laptop with 1Gb Ram under Windows XP Pro with all security patches.
During startup, my mouse moves by steps and not fluently... Processors
are near 100% of power consumption.
I've tried the same image on my fix PC (512Mb/P4 3Ghz) and then it
starts very fast.
After startup, Dolphin runs normally on the two configuration.
Thanks a lot.

sounds interesting. Do you want to create a RoboCode-Clone or something
which is similar to RoboCode?

Nice work Esteban! I really liked your minimlist approach. I hope you
don't mind that I "copied" your design and adapted it for a Screensaver.
The screensaver is available here:

Think there will ever be a Dolphin Smalltalk on Linux?
In particular, on 64-bit Linux?
...Dolphin Smalltalk and the new WinRT
Over the years many of us have asked Andy whether a .NET version of Dolphin Smalltalk could be delivered. Unfortunately, the amount of work to do this would not be cost effective and basically it never really got out of the idea phase.
However, with the introduction of the new WinRT that is being introduced in Windows 8, tablets, and Windows Phones could this be exactly what Dolphin needs.
Basically the WinRT is an unmanaged. Examination of the runtime libraries reveal that they are built upon Win32 API.
WinRT is essentially a COM-based API, although relying on an enhanced C...[ANN]

Well we made it! Only a week late (or a year depending on who's
counting). The new website is up and the product is ready for those of
you keen enough to upgrade.
I'd like to mention a couple of important points. We have rationalised
the Dolphin products set into two products. We now only provide a
single commercial product, Dolphin Professional and we will have a free
version called Dolphin Community Edition. You will find that the latter
actually has quite a lot more stuff in it than the old Value Edition.
However, at the moment the Community Edition and a trial...Example from Dolphin Smalltalk Companion
I recently got the book the Dolphin Smalltalk Companion to try to learn
MVP programming. I happen to be using the Dolphin D6 rather than the
earlier version 4 Value edition, though the code still seems to
work---or so I thought. On the accompanying CD-rom is the source code
for the examples in the book. I loaded in the Chapter 4 example which
builds dialog boxes for the Team and the Driver:
The simple Team dialog box loads and runs without any problems. I was
also able to get the Driver e...
