LearnDelphi.TV – In this video we are going to continue to look at features of CnPack, this time the Component Prefix Wizard. This allows you to quickly and easily name components with consistent prefixes. It's five and half minutes long and you can watch it on YouTube.
LearnDelphi.TV – In this video we take a look at using structural highlighting, and how it can help make your code easier to understand. This is one of the many cool features of the free Delphi IDE plugin CnWizards from CnPack.org. I hope to cover some of it's other features in future videos. This video is under ...
LearnDelphi.TV – While in Auckland, at the Delphi XE6 product demo I had the opportunity to spend some time with Marco Cantú, Product manager for Delphi. I naturally took my video camera and recorded an hour and a quarter with Marco. This video is available on YouTube, watch it here. After spending several hours ...
LearnDelphi.TV – In this YouTube video, I do a brief review of Nick Hodges new book Coding in Delphi. The executive summary of the review is: If you are using a version of Delphi greater than 2010, then you should read it. I really enjoyed the book and found much of the content useful - you probably will to.
LearnDelphi.TV – In this YouTube video we look at how to change the mouse cursor in FireMonkey in a way that should work on all platforms (although I've not tested it). We further look at how we can do this with a single line of code, using a cleaver trick by returning an interface from a function. The video is ...
LearnDelphi.TV – During this session you'll either be thinking "I do that" (and hopefully you'll stop) or "I remember doing that" (while cringing at the memory). There are certain coding patterns that all Delphi programmers seem to use at some stage - some of them sub-optimal, some weird, and some just plain wrong. ...
LearnDelphi.TV – We all want to do the right thing with memory management and make sure we tidy up after ourselves. However as our code gets buried in successive layers of object allocation, try, finally, free "nests" it all becomes a bit onerous -- and, well, resembling a pterodactyl nest. In this session, we look ...
LearnDelphi.TV – In this YouTube video I take a look at the fact that depending on what version of Delphi and if you are using FireMonkey or the VCL, the definitions of Margins and Padding on controls are different. Up until Delphi XE4, the usage of Margins and Padding in FireMonkey was reversed to that of the VCL, ...
LearnDelphi.TV – This is the first in a series of interviews with Embarcadero MVPs, and who better to interview first than the man who is going to be taking the MVP program to the next level - Jim McKeeth. While we attempted to stay on the topic of Delphi programming, we did digress somewhat. Watch the video on ...
LearnDelphi.TV – In this 4 minute video we look at the initialization and finalization sections of Delphi units, and how you can use begin instead of initialization - which may cause you some grief in some instances. Watch the video. In the video I also mention CnPack, which has some highly useful utilities.
