Someone should create a table with Delphi Conditional defines over the Delphi versions/compiler platforms/bitness

The Wiert Corner – Right now, documentation on Delphi Conditional Defines is on pages like Conditional compilation (Delphi) – RAD Studio XE2, but it is limited as it is for one specific version of Delphi only.

Have Hints For Some Delphi Controls Stay Longer – Control Specific Hint Hide Timeout Values

Zarko Gajic – Ah, even after years of programming in Delphi, there’s still something new I learn every day (lucky me). Just recently I needed to have hints (help tooltips) for some buttons to stay visible longer than hints for other controls (like edits, memos and alike). Found no straight forward solution ...

Vista and up: CardGames.dll (was: Delphi – back in 1996 – CARDS.DLL component wrapper in Delphi 1 and 2!)

The Wiert Corner – About 3 years ago, I wrote a small article about the Cards.dll that I encapsulated even longer ago. I just did some looking around to see on which versions of Windows Cards.dll was still available, as Card.dll has been there since the Windows 16-bit era. Conclusion: this C# example shows was ...

Added Linux support to the TSMBIOS Project

The Road to Delphi – Great news for the Free Pascal developers, I just added Linux support to the TSMBIOS project. Note : The TSMBIOS read the SMBIOS info using the /dev/mem device file  which provides access to system physical memory, so the code must be executed using a user with the proper permissions.

TMS Software Blog – Besides mapping tables to classes and table columns to fields/properties, Aurelius also maps relationships (foreign keys) to object associations. One nice thing about Aurelius is that such associations are defined in a very simple way: just references to other objects. Consider the following classes ...

Legacy Code: Scoping

Rob's Technology Corner – Hey when I change X why does it break Y when they "should" be completely unrelated.   It's a common problem in development where changing one bit of code has unintended side effects on a different section of code.    Proper varible scoping can help reduce these errors.  Unit ...

Annoying FireMonkey buglet/oversight of the week

Delphi Haven – My personal FireMonkey buglet/oversight of the week is this: setting a TTextControl descendant’s Text property inside its constructor doesn’t do anything. For those who don’t know, TTextControl is the base class for things like TLabel, TListBoxItem and TExpander in FMX. Create ...
