Anonymous Classes: Dynamic Objects

Te Waka o Delphi – There is another use case for anonymous classes even simpler than that of providing implementations of interfaces: Dynamic objects.

#ILoveDelphi How About You?

The PodCast at Delphi.org – February 14th is Delphi’s birthday (and some other holiday). What a great time to talk about how much we love Delphi.

Delphi for Linux: Enterprise / Architect Only + ARC Imposed = … ?

Te Waka o Delphi – With the lack of any easily available information from Embarcadero, in yesterday’s post I had to speculate as to the cost that might be involved with the new Delphi for Linux. According to comments it seems that I was being overly generous by suggesting that only a Pro Edition of Delphi would ...

On Delphi for Linux…

Te Waka o Delphi – It has been difficult to avoid the fuss being made about the “new” Linux support in Delphi. It’s almost as if they didn’t have a Linux offering more than 15 years ago. I refer of course to Kylix, which failed in no small part due to the quality and the cost of the tool, for ...

My Top 10 Aurelius Features - #4 Aurelius Dataset

TMS Software Blog – I consider Aurelius Dataset (TAureliusDataset) a hidden gem of TMS Aurelius. Well, not exactly "hidden" because it's a significant part of it to deserve its own chapter in the Aurelius documentation, but in the sense that it's different from the normal ORM "core" which is update, insert, delete, ...

Zarko Gajic – Woohoo! After a few weeks of struggle I’ve finally high-dpi enabled my used-across-the-globe Delphi application. It was not a too hard job – it just took a lot of time and experimenting (read: fixing) how the UI of the application appears on various 4K displays having various settings for “Make ...
