Where is IDE Fix Pack for XE2?

Andy's Blog – I haven’t released the IDE Fix Pack for XE2 yet, but it exists since Sept. 9 (I arrived too early in Cologne for the Delphi-Tage and had nothing else to do). But why haven’t I already released it then? The answer is simple. I want IDE and compiler bugs to be sent to Embarcadero and not me. And I ...

Locking screen rotation in FireMonkey iOS…

The Hacker's Corner – Warning: This is a total hack, and should NOT be attempted unless you know exactly what you’re doing. I don’t know any better, so I just went for it. Editing shipping source files is NEVER supported, encouraged, and shouldn’t even be blogged about. OK, warning aside. Here we ...

Registry Search-Replace tools – correcting the havoc after a data migration

The Wiert Corner – A while ago, I found myself in the situation where at a corporate client the user profiles had moved on the LAN. Very understandable: it was one of the migrations towards DFS. They notified this in advance, so I made backups of everything (home drive and user profile) just to make sure. The move ...

Copying and pasting the contents of a FireMonkey TBitmap

Delphi Haven – One of the various things not yet implemented in FireMonkey is TClipboard. In FMX.Platform you can find routines for getting and setting text on the clipboard (using Variant arguments – I’ve no idea either), but nothing beyond that. On the forums, Mehmed Ali Caliskan posted some code ...

Here are some observations, most born from maintaining and developing 3D software in C++ and ...
