Fixing the WSDLImp command-line Delphi WSDL importer to parse WSDL files including XSD files using xsd:group at the top level

The Wiert Corner – I finally found out the cause of the Delphi WSDL Importer generating wrong .pas files when the WSDL file includes an XSD file that uses an xsd:group (see below) at the top-level. The resulting access violation was caused by forgetting a nil check for a Context (at the top-level it is nil because ...

Getting the new MMX from Raabe Software to work when installing it as separate Administrative user

The Wiert Corner – I have a policy to install software with a separate Administrative user, but develop with a normal non-Administrative user. For some software, this creates problems, either because it cannot cope while running as a non-UAC user, or because they write their configuration (either on disk or in the ...

Delphi – when compiling consts doesn’t work…

The Wiert Corner – Delphi has a lot of loose ends. With the extension of the language, it gets more and more. Or as Stefan Glienke formulated it: It should all compile but it does not because currently what is a real const and what is a variable treated as const by the compiler is a f…ing mess and thus some ...

blog.gurock.com – “Love” is a strong word. I’m not sure I really love test-driven development (TDD). But I do love solving problems by programming and crafting simple, elegant code. Some things detract from this love: Delivering defects—how embarrassing! Pulling my hair out because I can’t understand how your (or ...

Delphi WSDL importer compiler defines

The Wiert Corner – As a follow-up on Delphi WSDL default importer settings, you can use these compiler defines to increase output. Output that the built-in Wizard will never show you (that is also the reason you will not see any errors like access violations in the IDE). TL;DR Always use the command-line WSDL ...

Is there any way to record a keyboard macro in the IDE?

The Wiert Corner – Yes there is, but it only does code editor commands. It’s been there since at least 1998 (read Delphi 4), probably all 32-bit versions and maybe even the 16-bit Delphi 1 version. via: [WayBack] Is there any way to record a keyboard macro in the IDE?

Strings as “data buffers”

Yet Another Programming Blog – I bet most of the Delphi developers used or are still using strings to hold and operate on binary data. I’ve done it, and some of my older projects still contain such code. The basic idea is to use strings as byte buffers to hold and to use string routines to perform operations on those ...
