Debug logging in FireMonkey – CodeRage XI Lightning Talks

Brian Long – During CodeRage XI I had a couple of Lightning Talks broadcast on a subject I’ve been intending to write up for quite a long time, but haven’t quite managed to achieve: how to emit debug log messages on the various FireMonkey platforms. I made a 10 minute video for Delphi and one for C++ looking at ...

Android callbacks wrapped by FireMonkey

Brian Long – A couple of years ago (exactly!) I posted on this blog about an article I’d written on accessing NFC tags from Delphi Android applications. At the time this was quite an involved exercise, requiring custom Java code to be compiled and linked in to the application in order to respond to the pertinent ...

Live Templates (née Code Templates)

Brian Long – Over the years since Delphi 3 various people have written about aspects of Code Templates and Live Templates, but not particularly recently. I find Code Templates fabulously helpful and Live Templates add some real power into the mix. About six or seven months ago (November 2015) I did a User Group ...

Some Delphi and C++Builder articles

Brian Long – My blog editor of choice is proving to be a little quisquous at the moment.Historically I have used Windows LiveWriter, part of Windows Essentials (whose development stopped in 2012, but was still available here (web installer) and here (offline installer)). This worked well, but at some point over ...

Two Decades, Eh?

Brian Long – Well, well, well, it turns out I’ve been working for myself for two decades now! I left Borland in January 1995, thinking I could manage maybe about 5 years if I was lucky and did well before I got another full time job. And now we’re in 2015! How time flies when you’re having fun :o) Oh yeah, and a ...

Delphi and NFC on Android

Brian Long – NFC is a neat technology. If you’ve got an NFC sensor on your phone or tablet then there is a reasonable chance you’ve played around with apps like Trigger, which perform various actions on your device when you wave it over NFC tags in stickers or on key fobs etc. after a bit of setup. So, for ...

Splash screens in Delphi Android apps

Brian Long – I’ve been meaning to do it for quite a while and I recently started writing up my steps for creating an Android splash screen (as per my CodeRage 8 session). No sooner did I do so that Delphi XE6 launched itself onto the scene, making my write up immediately slightly out of date :-/ Unperturbed, I ...
