Anonymous Classes: Identity Exposed!

Te Waka o Delphi – In my previous post on Anonymous Classes I erroneously referred to them as “dynamic objects” (thanks to commentors for pulling me up on that). Dynamic objects are something else entirely (although what precisely they might mean can vary on different platforms and in different languages). ...

Resizing TImageList Bitmaps to Fit High-DPI Scaling Size (for Menus, Toolbars, Trees, etc.)

Zarko Gajic – So, you’ve made your Delphi application high-DPI aware and after a few manual fixes the UI looks more or less usable on 4K displays having logical DPI values set to more than 100% (96 DPI). However, you open up the application’s main menu (or any popup menu) set to display images from an image ...

Generic TObjectList layout has changed

TURBU Tech – I ran across a really strange bug at work yesterday: Access Violation when performing a certain operation in the program. These are usually really simple.  Easy to reproduce, and the debugger takes you right to the problem, and there you are, confronted by a nil that someone forgot to initialize ...

Shameless Plug: uArm Swift

TURBU Tech – I just ran across this on IndieGoGo.  Everyone remember the cute lab robots from the first Iron Man movie?  Well, the people at uFactory are trying to actually build them.  (More or less.)
