Developing Android apps with Delphi XE5 on an ancient Nook Color

Ramblings of a Delphi Addict – With this release I thought I would play around with some of the new android support available. Of course its much more fun if you have a device to play around with, but I wasn't about to run out and get one since I already have an IPad that I switched to after almost two years with my nook color. ...

TypeScript brings types to Javascript

Ramblings of a Delphi Addict – One of the things that I generally get frustrated with when I have to code in Javascript is the lack of safety that strongly typed languages such as Delphi bring to the table. Most of the tools, while they offer basic language helpers, do not do much about the structure of your javascript ...

Metro Icons for Delphi XE3

Ramblings of a Delphi Addict – In playing around with Delphi XE3 and the new Metro UI wizards, I found I needed a few icons to explore with. After a little searching, I discovered a gem in MetroStudio. This application allows you to quickly create "Metro"ized icons from either a collection of over 1400 symbols, or even a symbol ...

Delphi Tip : Avoiding Project101

Ramblings of a Delphi Addict – It is inevitable. In my hurry to test something I created yet another console application and started entering some code. Funny thing how the project numbers keep mounting, and I have no recollection what any of these small test applications do since every default project goes into the same ...

The Delphi Wizard Framework - Navigation

Ramblings of a Delphi Addict – In a previous entry, I discussed some of the design decisions that allowed me to reach the current solution. One more decision which greatly impacted the design of the framework... I wanted to make sure that it could be data driven. One of the projects that I was working on at the time was an ...

Google Code Hosting -- Painless Open Source Management

Ramblings of a Delphi Addict – Google Code Hosting really makes it simple to host open sourced projects. Especially if you like Subversion. In my few days with it I have tried just about all of the basic features and have found them easy to use and manage. Initial setup was very painless. The only desirable thing that is ...

The Delphi Wizard Framework - Design Decisions

Ramblings of a Delphi Addict – The Delphi Wizard Framework, as I introduced in the previous post, was originally designed to replace a complex configuration system which was put together using a TNotebook component (yes, from the Delphi 1 days) on a single form. The first problem this faced was adding pages was more complex than ...

Introducing the Delphi Wizard Framework

Ramblings of a Delphi Addict – I just posted my latest version of my wizard framework to http://code.google.com/p/delphiwizardframework/.   This is some general purpose code that I have found myself using in many of my projects, as most of them at some point involve the need to step a user through many different "wizard" screens. ...

Fun with Generics.collections

Ramblings of a Delphi Addict – I guess the best way to learn about new language features are to put them in practice, and with that I jumped into using the TDictionary to keep track of some xml nodes I was editing.  It was very easy to implement, but what got me stumped was then how to iterate thru the entire list and apply ...

First look, browser has much more room compared to IE/Firefox out of the box....although my webmail provider (not Gmail of course) doesn't recognize the browser yet so it doesn't give ...

Sychronizing source code directories

Ramblings of a Delphi Addict – One of the big problems I have faced by using Vista Ultimate on my primary development machines as a host OS for virtual PC development environments has been the fact that Vista Ultimate (and I am assuming other versions of Vista as well) have problems copying extremely large files. It was part of ...

Avoiding circular refrences

Ramblings of a Delphi Addict – Sometimes its the simple things that make it all worth while. Then, when I needed to call one of the tasks, I just called the InvokeTask method passing it the name of the class I needed to use. No more direct circular refrences, and each unit could easily be picked up and dropped into another ...

Good to grant!

Ramblings of a Delphi Addict – Sometimes it helps to have knowledge of life before Google. When attempting to navigate to the Managed VCL pages at http://www.managedvcl.com, I discovered that they were not working properly and I was immediately prompted by some sort of error message in obvious Russian. Not being fluent in that ...
