Olaf Monien – A couple of versions ago Delphi XE kind of silently introduced the new string types MarshalledString and MarshalledAString. These types basically map to PChar and PAnsiChar, which worked fine for years. Since Delphi went multi-platform though, there was the need to introduce some stricter ...

Marco's Tech Blog – FireMonkey in Delphi XE5 introduces a new mechanism for working with modal dialog boxes, due to the fact that the old model is not directly supported on Android. So let's start from this last point, or actually from Windows, where the "modal" form idea originated. The following description is not ...

Importing an Android Class For Use in Delphi

Te Waka o Delphi – In a previous post I noted the absence of the BatteryManager class in the AndroidAPI.JNI units. This class contains some constants useful when reading battery information.
