The Web vNext

TPersistent.com – I have been reading a lot about Web development lately, and pondering the future of web development.  For the longest time I shied away from Web development, largely because it was so laborious and frustrating. I dabbled a bit back when people were using COM objects with VBScript on the server and ...

Using a K750 Mac Keyboard with VMWare Fusion

TPersistent.com – I just created a VM for the Beta test and decided I am going to use it on my Mac for a change. Rather than using a KVM I bought a Logitech M510 mouse, and K750 PC keyboard and bound it to one unifying receiver. Normally I just pull the USB receiver from my PC, put it into my Mac mini, switch the ...

Is this Feature Supported?

TPersistent.com – Quite often new features are added into a code stream for demonstration purposes, or need to be hidden because they are not quite ready for release (especially true for monolithic EXEs), or the client cannot upgrade their database structures yet. There usually are various home grown approaches ...

If Civil Engineering was like Software Engineering

TPersistent.com – We all know that software engineering is not at all like any other engineering discipline.  It is both a creative endeavor and an expression of technical acumen.  Applying the term “engineer” to this career is somewhat akin to the title “Domestic Engineer”.  If wasn’t, ...

Is JIRA Jilted?

TPersistent.com – I am evaluating Berlin 10.1 and finding that the IRBB errors frequently encountered with Delphi Seattle seem to be gone.  I wish we could upgrade to the latest Berlin edition, but sadly the pricing of Delphi now that The New Release Pattern has taken effect, is just to cost prohibitive in order to ...

I need an Expert

TPersistent.com – Over the years various files that should be included in the Delphi installation package have gone missing such as MidasLib for 64 bit builds for instance and now ExpertsCreators.dcp (I still can’t get my head around the package name - shouldn’t it be “ExpertCreator.dcp”). I ...

Navigating an Unresponsive IDE

TPersistent.com – I’ve found that Ctrl + clicking an identifier while debugging an application often causes the IDE (at least Seattle) to become completely unresponsive.  Using Ctrl+Shift+Esc to invoke the Task Manager seems to interrupt the IDE’s thread, returning it to a usable state.  While I try to ...

Recovering from AutoRecover

TPersistent.com – Here is a great example of a UI which could be much more intuitive. I got this after my machine spontaneously rebooted last night.  I am running Embarcadero® Delphi 10 Seattle Version 23.0.21418.4207. A Great UI It doesn’t say how you are to save the files, and although Beyond Compare has ...

The Delphi Win32/64 Compiler Could be Smarter

TPersistent.com – It’s a good practice to always treat compiler warnings as errors, to ensure your code is correct, so it’s a little annoying when the compiler warnings are not necessarily true.  For instance, you have an enumeration like the following: TMeasuredFrom = (mfCenter, mfUpstream, mfTopLeft); ...

The Lengths we will go to for a Bug Fix

TPersistent.com – For anyone using the Win64 Debugger in DX Seattle, you have probably experienced this little gem: Debugger is Buggered This seems to happen more frequently with multi-threaded applications, and unfortunately is not the only issue with the debugger.  Being unable to step into interfaced method calls ...

Not The Ideal Idera Experience

TPersistent.com – My DX Seattle installation starting throwing access violations whenever a form was loaded into the IDE last week.  I had started to install Berlin on the same machine, so I wasn’t sure if that or some other installation had triggered this situation.  Having to bounce the IDE every 5 minutes ...

A Case for YAGNI?

TPersistent.com – I have worked with Delphi for a long time now (since D1), and am embarrassed to say that for the first time today, something occurred to me I have never thought of before.  I was waiting for DX Seattle to finish compiling a rather large project, or more accurately link it.  I was threading some ...

The Parsing Problem

TPersistent.com – One of the major stumbling blocks Delphi tool developers have to overcome is the parsing problem.  Any add-in that allows re-factoring of code at any level must first parse it accurately enough to provide the additional functionality.  While Visual Studio has a VSIP (Visual Studio Integration ...

Temporary Outage

TPersistent.com – You may have noticed that my blog has been off line for a while now.  Took me a couple weeks to find the time to rebuild my machine after a hard disk failure.  It’s still not 100%.  Images are not appearing with the blog articles for some reason.  I hope to have that resolved this weekend.
