Hi all,

Please excuse me if this is an obvious question.

I have an application called Adv_Player which I programmed in Delphi 7
Enterprise project and I have since converted it to a Lazarus
project. (It is a very stable and fully test application available for
Windows XP from my download page in a setup exe file).

Yes, I still have all the fully working original source code.

Now I want to convert it into a web based application. I know that Delphi 7
Enterprise can do this but I never got around to investigating HOW to go
about doing this.

The application has a Adv_Main : TForm and lots of TEdit's, TButton's and
TCheckbox'es and TRadioButton's and a few TGroupBox'es (or do I mean
TRadioGroup ?) and TFrame's and maybe a TSplitter.

The rest of the work is all done with my own code and reads and write some
text files with readln and writeln statements. These can be thought of as
comma separated value files.

What do I need to do in order for my application (currently about 5-6
TForms) into a web based application? Another application has about 10-12
TForms in it.

How many of those components do I keep and what needs to be replaced and
with what equivalent components. E.g. what is the web based version of
TButton or TEdit etc?

How do I tell Lazarus that my binary file will be launched from within my
html code?

Can Lazarus do this?

Would I be correct in assuming that ShowMessage() would not work it was
hosted on a website?

I want to how it on my own website which is hosted by Hosted24.com with my
Silver membership payment plan.

I also have Dreamweaver 3, Studio MX (including Dreamweaver MX) and KompoZer
for Mint 10 and Wine 1.3.
