Android - The case of the vanishing file

TPersistent.com – I’m relatively new to the Android development platform, coming from the Windows desktop. One of the great things about recent editions of Delphi is it’s ability target numerous other platforms. One of the worst things about recent versions of Delphi is it’s ability to target ...

More Persistence with Spring4D ORM

TPersistent.com – Today I decided to ensure the project I am working on is in fact database independent. The best way I have found is to make sure you develop and test on multiple databases as you go. Since the ORM portion of Spring4D often called Marshmellow is supposed to isolate your application from the ...

Persistence with Spring4D

TPersistent.com – My blog tagline is certainly no accident.  I have been interested in persistence frameworks for a long time, and thought I would use Spring4D’s Marshmellow ORM for a project.  Spring4D has been around for quite some time and just had it’s first conference in Italy so I figured the ...

How to get Login Dialogs Appearing on the TaskBar

TPersistent.com – Most of the applications I have worked on in Delphi are database apps that may present a splash form quickly followed by a login dialog.  If the user fails to authenticate, the application needs to terminate gracefully.  The only way to do so cleanly is to modify the DPR code with some conditional ...

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); ...
