Do you know Build Groups?

The Art of Delphi Programming – Can you make a build in one step? (It is #2 in The Joel Test, but that is not a main topic of this article.) If you can, you have probably set up a clean build system for doing daily builds (#3 of The Joel Test) or even continuous builds based on a source control system (#1 of The Joel Test) and ...

Loop Less with IEnumerable and Spring for Delphi

Nick Hodges – I rave about the Delphi Spring Framework.  But I think my attention to the Dependency Injection Framework – which is only part of it -- has made you guys think that the two are synonymous.  Not true – Spring4D is more than just a Dependency Injection container.  In fact, there is a ...

FMX tip: ‘labels’ with selectable text

Delphi Haven – Say you are designing a form in FMX, and wish to use a read-only edit box. No problem: stick a TEdit on the form and set its ReadOnly property to False. However, doing this doesn’t give any visual indication the edit box’s contents can’t be changed. Moreover, what if you’re ...

Original method to iterate the bits within an integer

Behind the connection – Today, I would like to present you an original way of iterating thru all the bits in an integer. The usual way of iterating the bits is to build a moving bit mask in a loop and selecting each bit in turn with that mask. This works perfectly and it is fast. But today, I want to show you a better ...

FMX tip: buttons with images that still have nicely-aligned captions

Delphi Haven – Unlike its VCL equivalent, the FMX TSpeedButton has no Glyph property; similarly, TButton doesn’t have the image properties added to the VCL version in D2009, and in FMX, there’s no TBitBtn class to boot. The reason for this is that in principle, there is no need for class-specific image ...

Flotsam and Jetsam #72

Nick Hodges – Am I weird?  One of the first things I do when I install Delphi is to turn off Brace Matching and Line Highlighting.  I find both of these features incredibly distracting, particularly the Brace Highlighting, which makes it impossible to see where the caret is in the text.  This ...

Making the never-ending sorry tale of FMX menus a bit happier

Delphi Haven – For me, FMX at present has three main showstopping limitations: an inability to draw text that is neither wonky (XP/Vista) nor overly ‘sharp’ (W7/W8) on Windows; a TMemo that isn’t fit for purpose on any platform; and a menu implementation that is poor on Windows, and hopelessly ...
