Internet Explorer Automation Part 2

Behind the connection – Internet Explorer is a very nice program to automate. There are a large number of actions you can do programmatically from your own application. But when IE is already opened with a bunch of tabs, it is not a trivial task to programmatically select and activate the tab you want. Here after, I will ...

Delphi 2012 Redux

TPersistent.com – I delayed publishing this post as I contemplated the wisdom of doing so, but 2012 has been a big year for Delphi, so I thought I would review the events of the year and make my predictions for 2013 even if it’s the last day of January rather than the first.

Delphi 7 Installation – Ol’Tymes

Olaf Monien – I just installed Delphi 7 to test something with an old project, which never got updated to one of the newer Delphi Versions. I have an old CD where I copied the installation folder from. That took like 8-10 minutes, as the CD is apparently not in good shape anymore. Then after some Win7 paranoia ...

When a Date Drives you Nuts

TPersistent.com – It’s been several years since I used datasets for anything other than quickly displaying the results of a SQL Query or Proc.  Recently I have been reminded why I dislike the TDataSet based RAD development approach so much.

Zarko Gajic – I guess you might not know what the term “dangling pointer” means, but if you have ever done some more complex programming in Delphi (where you do not only put controls on a form and handle a few events – rather you create and use objects at run-time) you might have experienced weird Access ...

TStringHelper in Delphi XE3

Marco's Tech Blog – I blogged quite some time ago about record helpers for native types in XE3 in general. This time I want to focus on TStringHelper.
