You just wrote a ...

Fixing XE7 + Android SDK 23 ZipAlign Problem

The Delphi Geek – If you install RAD Studio XE7 and then upgrade Android SDK to version 23, you won’t be able to deploy applications to Android devices anymore. The reason for that is that ZipAlign.exe was moved out of sdk\tools folder in SDK 23 and XE7’s deployment process cannot find it anymore. Now it is located ...

Incrementing Progress Bar from a ForEach Loop

The Delphi Geek – A deceptively simple question – how do you update a progress bar from a ForEach loop – popped up on the Google+ OmniThreadLibrary community.
