It’s a Good Time for NZ Delphi Users to Cross-Grade

Te Waka o Delphi – Having lost our Delphi reseller in NZ last year, and with the Kiwi dollar riding high against the US dollar, now is a good time to make purchases from online stores operating in US currency. RemObjects has such a store and they also have a cross-grade offer for Delphi customers wishing to move over ...

Opening a URL in Safari on iOS

The Hacker's Corner – Consider this code. It works. And I was just about to answer a commenter with it… But my brain HURTS reading it, even more writing it, and much more recommending that someone else copies it… function SharedApplication: UIApplication; begin Result := ...

Handling iOS application events

The Hacker's Corner – One thing that I’ve wanted to try for quite a while is doing something when an app gets put in the background (user hits the home button for example). An example of this is a game that my kids play - when they leave the game, the character yells out something like "Don’t leave!", "Come ...

Objective-C for Delphi users: Property Setters and Getters

Olaf Monien – Even though Embarcadero did a great job in abstracting the RTL and FireMonkey from iOS specifics in their latest Delphi XE 4 release, there will sometimes be the need to access iOs APIs directly – just like we did with the Windows API. In contrast to the Win32 API, many iOS APIs (not all ...

Delphi samples updated constantly

Olaf Monien – Since a while the samples that come with Delphi are actually connected to a SubVersion repository of Embaracderos, that is you might want to “update” them from time to with your favorite SVN client. Samples for Delphi XE4 can usually be found here: C:\Users\Public\Documents\RAD ...

FMX is not a VCL replacement

The Wiert Corner – This is more elaborate English version of a short Dutch message I recently sent to explain the differences between VCL and FMX: Do not regard FMX as a replacement for VCL: they are different kinds of frameworks. VCL is a wrapper around Windows Controls. In itself, it has not much functionality: it ...

Entity Framwork and how to solve poor performance on large read-only batches

Olaf Monien – ORMs such as Entity Framework are great – as long as you don’t forget that there is quite a complex engine under the shiny hood. I just ran into the situation that EF performed extremely poor while processing large sets of data. It even threw exceptions that indicated that my underlying ...

Embarcadero: Don’t hide behind bad design

JED Software Blog – Recently I created an QC report to try and get the default wizard behaviour changed to be user friendly. The issue is that the description text for the wizard item only shows when the mouse is hovered over the item. This means that keyboard navigation will never show the description nor will just ...

iOS “Support” Prior to XE4 ?

Te Waka o Delphi – Some people have taken issue with my chagrin at the way in which iOS support has been mis-handled in Delphi, implying or in some cases directly stating, that iOS was only ever in beta before and so I had no right to expect “real” product to be delivered at no extra cost. I take issue ...

Cross platform anonymous threads and progress notification

Idle Musings of a Delphi Junkie – Reading Anders Ohlsson’s latest blog post about using iOS APIs we don’t wrap reminded me of another couple of helper classes that I created, and which ship with the RAD Studio XE4 samples. The first of these is the TAnonymousThread<T> generic class (in <samples installation ...

Qualified Enum Reference That Fails to Compile in XE4 (and rightly so)

Te Waka o Delphi – Running through some of my code last night, putting them through the new XE4 compiler, threw up a real oddity: Some code that used to compile just fine, which no longer compiles in XE4 and which should not have compiled before! It’s an odd one, because the code previously compiled – and ...
