What are the size restrictions for the VCL controls like TPanel and TPaintBox…

Posted by jpluimers on 2020/02/27

Via [WayBack] What are the size restrictions for the VCL controls like TPanel and TPaintBox.? Are they documented anywhere? I’m talking about placing these on a TScro… – Thomas Mueller (dummzeuch) – Google+:

Some Windows messages use the LPARAM to carry width and height, which allows only 16 bit for each.

Redirect Detective – A Free Tool To Trace Where Redirects End Up

Posted by jpluimers on 2020/02/27

Cool tool, but be aware it does aJavaScript:xmlhttpPost from , so your data can be logged [WayBackRedirect Detective – A Free Tool To Trace Where Redirects End Up.

For http://www.xs4all.nl/~jp, it shows these redirects (where in bold I’ve listed the changes):

Oh and it runs this call: JavaScript:xmlhttpPost("/linkdetect.px")?word=www.xs4all.nl%2F%7Ejp from [WayBackredirectdetective.com/ajax.js.

Note that this shows more redirects than the plain http ones, so wget from [WayBack] wget – How do I display all URLs in a redirect chain? – Unix & Linux Stack Exchange shows this:

$ wget http://www.xs4all.nl/~jp 2>&1 | grep Location:
Location: https://www.xs4all.nl/~jp [following]
Location: https://jp.home.xs4all.nl/ [following]
