naitlee, can you guide me on how to reproduce the problem?
do you think it's possible to do also with default template?

I just tried to apply my translation to default template. Attached as hfs.diff.tpl, encoded as utf-8. With the 2 ways I got different result:
 Open that file with notepad, copy-paste all things to diff template in root, it worked perfectly;
 place that file to real folder and bind to root, the file seems got corrupted at some points in its raw data.

So is the function of reading files of HFS or Windows API got wrong?

Check out my template ;)

thanks. I did exactly what you said, and it always worked well


So what I think is that there is a difference between our 2 systems.
I can try to workaround this problem, anway. I'm going to give you a version with a different loading method.

i tried as you said, but i noticed that the only change in the DFM file was to add "ExplicitLeft". Strange. Maybe i didn't do it in the right way. I did it only for the main form now, if someone will confirm that it's working i'll do it for the other windows.
On Windows XP it looks the same on v2.4-alpha06 as v2.4-alpha05. It continues to have bad graphics.

I have very very good news to announce
[...]
So the latest sources can be compiled on a delphi XE2 running under Windows XP
Perhaps you could share with Rejetto all the changes needed...

» Currently taking a break, until HFS v2.4 get his stable version.

sigh..... i suspected what i did was not enough. Maybe mars could give me its main.dfm, but that may also be not enough.

I may be able to make tests using a VM with XP.

Is me, or v2.4-alpha06 has broken something?... ???
(I'm talking about the form-based login)

v2.4-alpha05 = Everything OK!
v2.4-alpha06 = "bad password"

I'm getting "bad password" with v2.4-alpha06, and I didn't changed anything on the form based login. The password is fine (user is "ABC" and password is "1234").

I know SHA256 was added on v2.4-alpha06, but reading the source code, it should accept MD5 hashed passwords too (like v2.4-alpha05).

Can someone reproduce this?... :-\

i tested using the VM, but could not find a way to make it work. Made several experiments and research. I think the key is that mars used a different delphi version.

the login problem must be because i switched from ICS to delphi library for the md5. I'll see to it.

I can test tomorrow.
I don't have a PC at the moment, only a smartphone ... so I do the tests where I can.

XE2, I think. He also tries to adapt your code on Rio from his tests on XE2 ... to obtain an XP compatible version of hfs.

sorry for the delay but the last version alpha06 cannot be compiled on my delphi xe2, suddenly I modified the dfm by hand

what is different from the original version is the addition where it seems necessary to have
    Font.Charset = DEFAULT_CHARSET
    Font.Color = clWindowText
    Font.Height = -12
    Font.Name = 'Tahoma'
    Font.Style = []
    ParentFont = False

I did a easy test with alpha6, no messcode anymore ;)

But the login problem seems severe, just like everyone said here.

In Leo's login system, with a English username it says password incorrect; with a Chinese username it leaves a "receiving" connection.
In browser login form, with a English username it succeeds; with a Chinese username I got a deadly "400 - Bad request".

thanks mars. I'll try "parentfont=true", so that the font is just one.

that's wonderful news!
the login problem is silly, and i fixed it very easily, but then had a lot of more work to do for other stuff.
You'll see it fixed in next release, don't worry.
