Anybody know the Delphi equivalent of the VB function "IsNumeric"?

I'm trying to translate Hal9000's teleports.bas to use with my bot
I'll paste the line where IsNumeric is:

If (IsNumeric(Left(part, 1))) Or (Left(part, 1) = ".") Or
(Left(part, 1) = "-") Then

And before you ask, the contact list methods don't work either :-)
Implementing these functions would call for a rewrite of
telegram/contact list mechanisms.. I emailed Roland about it once, and
he told me to prevent mass-tele abuse he would have to make substantial
changes to how the mechanisms work before he can make them work in the

Hope this helps

Build 20 of the SDK now available

Yesterday, 4/3/01, the world "Hell" had a question mark on it. Today, it
didn't. Did the world upgrade, or is it a abnormality of the new

"idol" is spelled "idle" in your case.
you nailed it, just one part not right (see below)

[View Quote] If your bot program misses a heartbeat and doesn't send one in a hurry,
the worldserver will eventually kill the "ghost" instance that is left,
along with the uniserver. This also occurs when you do not properly
terminate your bot instance.

Possible bug with DeeJay part of Xelagot

Apr 11, 2001, 1:11am

When using the DeeJay part of the Xelagot, I noticed it never properly
deletes the speaker objects. This bug could go three possible ways:

1) the browser is not refreshing the scene correctly
2) the SDK is not (fill in the blank) correctly
3) the xelagot itself is not (fill in the blank) correctly

why doesn't it just use Object Change? it does the same thing :)

VB Removing a List Item by String

May 7, 2001, 1:04am
Hrm, this is an interesting slap fight.

Both the "Case" and "ElseIf" statements are correct forms of
programming. It's just that some programmers find a "Case" statement
more efficient than a cluster of "ElseIfs". Azazael is right when he
says it makes code more efficient to read. Nobody is wrong here;
everybody is actually right. There are different ways to do different
things, just like there are different languages to make different
programs :o)

i'm using a newsreader that has no capability of viewing HTML *or*
binary attachments (images, ZIP/EXE files, etc), and i recall saying
once before i do not see the size of posts either.

and yes, i would bitch about a website if it takes too long to load.

Jul 30, 2001, 11:41pm
um, a newsreader that doesnt even know how to deal with HTML or binary
attachments is actually more secure than a newsreader that can. HTML
code can automatically be run in HTML posts that could be damaging to
your system. if this client only supported multiple servers i'd use it
on Andras' newsgroups as well.

i *do* have the better newsreader. do you?

Magsbot classes in exchange for script help?

Sep 29, 2001, 7:58pm
i sure can tell a difference! my newsreader is old (i use it intentionally, it was designed in the Windows 3.1 era) and has no idea what an
HTML post is. i dont see the size of a post, and i'm on 56K... so i'd really like it if everybody just stuck with plaintext. plus, HTML
posts can contain viruses.

maybe you learned something today... =)

"Failed to create instance! Reason 11001: Authoritive answer host not found"

Sep 30, 2001, 3:06am
I'm still using the 3.1 SDK build 20 (I'll get to upgrading eventually.)

This bot used to create its instance & login just fine... now it's throwing "11001" at me.

9/30/01 12:00:22 AM: Initializing Active Worlds API...
9/30/01 12:00:22 AM: Initialized API.

9/30/01 12:00:26 AM: Failed to create instance! Reason 11001: Authoritive answer host not found

Here is my code that logs the bot in (Delphi 5 Std. Edition):

procedure TMainForm.gk_login(Server, PrivPass, BotName: String; Port, CitNum: Integer);
rc: Integer;
FootMsg = 'Reason %d: %s';
CreateFailedMsg = 'Failed to create instance! '+FootMsg;

rc := aw_create(PChar(Server), Port, nil);
if rc <> 0 then
ShowStatus(Format(CreateFailedMsg, [rc, RCToStr(rc)]));
end else
ShowStatus('Logging in...');
aw_int_set(AW_LOGIN_OWNER, CitNum);
aw_string_set(AW_LOGIN_PRIVILEGE_PASSWORD, PChar(PrivPass));

simply a theory... don't know a drop of VB [anymore] but maybe you could find some equivalent..

in Delphi, you modify the SelAttributes property of a TRichEdit (VB equiv: RichText[Box]) like this:

RichEdit1.SelAttributes.Font.Color := clRed;

i know VB has to have some kind of equivalent.. i think i saw it on too.

Worldserver(?) bug with global mode + invisible bots

Jun 7, 2002, 3:31pm
When an invisible bot exits the world, a Global Mode bot (the mode may
or may not be relevant) will see an exit for the last user who


17:05:14 VRT: Shred exits s# 29684 at ?
K9D: - to Tony M - 17:05:14 Shred left
Tony M: goofy xelagots :O
Shred: indeed
Shred: shred left =O

This doesn't happen in just Xelagot. I managed to reproduce it with
another type of bot present (home-made); it took the avatar exit msg
normally and did not recognize my actions until I reentered.
