Okay, So When Should You Call Create?

Nick Hodges – Okay, I want you all to notice that in my previous post about the use of Create,  I was pretty careful not to say “Never call Create”. And near the start I said “For the most part”.

Nick Hodges – I like FireMonkey.  Actually, I confess that I don’t know much at all about FireMonkey, but I like that it exists.  I don’t use it, but I like that it is there, broadening the appeal of Delphi and generally advancing the cause of the tool we all love so well.  So I was ...
