Properties Methods Events Tasks
A TDDEServerItem component defines the item of a DDE conversation.
Use it by itself, or optionally, with a TDDEServerConv component
to make your application a DDE server.
To use a TDDEServerItem component with a TDDEServerConv component,
specify the name of a TDDEServerConv component in the ServerConv
The actual text data to exchange with the DDE client is specified
in the Text property. When the client requests an update, your
server sends the contents of the Text property to the client. When
the Text property is modified, either by your own application or
Quote:>when the client pokes data, an OnChange event occurs. For text
>data longer than the 255-character limit of Text, use the Lines
>property to specify the data to exchange.
To test a link with a DDE client, use the CopyToClipboard method.
This method will copy the contents of Text (or Lines), as well
as DDE link information to the Clipboard. Then, if the DDE client
can paste links, you can activate the client and paste the DDE data
into the client application.
In addition to these properties, methods, and events, this component
also has the properties and methods that apply to all components.

I know Borland catches a lot of flack for poor documentation,
but, believe it or not, there is a great deal of information
sitting just behind the <F1> key.
