Quick tip for compiling/testing DLLs

Me, Myself and Delphi – Now that Delphi 2007 is using MSBuild, you can take advantage of the Pre-Build events to automate a common headache: killing that task that is using your DLL before you build it! I'm currently developing an Outlook add-in so I found myself repeatedly quitting Outlook or getting an error because ...

Code formatting and readability

Me, Myself and Delphi – Well, each developer tends to have his own set of rules be that for code formatting, identifier naming or whatever. And each developer, when looking at someone else's code tends to go like: "wow: what was this guy thinking?"... Here's a piece of auto-generated code from Add-In Express: Code ...

Bugsie - Part 2

Me, Myself and Delphi – In my previous post, I mentioned a minor layout bug that I watched during the CodeRage Encore presentations. I can now consistently replicate it but other people have mixed success depending on what system they use. Here are the necessary steps to reproduce and a couple screenshots too that ...

Can you confirm this bug?

Me, Myself and Delphi – Well, 3 months ago, when watching one of the CodeRage Encore presentations, I witnessed a bug in action (more on that sooner!); even though I tried (as you can see in the replay), I couldn't get the presenter to replicate the bug. Now that the replays are finally available and now that I know how to ...

CodeGear Replays: not entirely their fault... :)

Me, Myself and Delphi – Well, after my previous post, and after some comment left in by a reader, I decided to "bug" Anders (not knowing he's on vacation!), and it appears that the problem with the video not skipping to where you try to skip is Camtasia's fault... Having tried Camtasia in the past, and seeing how many ...

CodeGear Encore - The (non) Replays

Me, Myself and Delphi – As you may have noticed, CodeGear finally placed the replays online. Well, I'm not even going to mention that the initial plan was to have those available only to registered Delphi Customers as it was in those terms that the event took place... (Well, it seems I did mention it, but I have no ...

Windows Live Writer, Spell Checker, Pascal Code Formatting

Me, Myself and Delphi – After reading this post from Primoz Gabrijelcic, which took me to this other post from Jimmy Bergmark, my Windows Live Writer has once again the Spell check option. In the 2nd post mentioned above, I saw a reference to another plug-in, a code-formatting plug-in, something that I wanted to add to WLW ...

Developing Office Add-ins the Easy Way - Part 3 of 2 (AKA: Yes, I do know how to count!)

Me, Myself and Delphi – Well, even though it's probably not the best use for my time judging from the overwhelming feedback I got on the previous 2 parts, it also doesn't take me that long to write this 3rd part of 2 so I'll do it anyway! :) I've fixed most (all?) of the blogger screw-ups with the formatting of my post and ...

Developing Office Add-ins the Easy Way - Part 2 of 2 (AKA: The tutorial stuff...)

Me, Myself and Delphi – If you haven't read Part 1, I'd advise you to do so. In it you'll find some more information on these components and, more importantly, your 20% discount coupon redeemable until the end of June 2007...

Developing Office Add-ins the Easy Way - Part 1 of 2 (AKA: Blah, Blah, Blah...)

Me, Myself and Delphi – Well, I first started thinking of doing this post in April, then, earlier in May, I thought of contacting the component vendor asking them for a special discount coupon that I could give you, the reader of this blog. They promptly gave me one that was good until the end of May, but, as you may ...

"Font smoothing, anti-aliasing, and sub-pixel rendering" - Joel on Software

Me, Myself and Delphi – Well, after reading this post, and since I couldn't find a way to comment on that, I opted for the easy comment option: blog about it! :) In fact, not much to say here, rather than in this particular aspect, I do favor Microsoft's call rather than Apple's one. Why? Well, surely being used to it also ...

Delphi 2007 Update - Take 3

Me, Myself and Delphi – I wasn't very fond of InstallAware, not as it's used by the Delphi installer, but now I'm even lesser of a fan: so much bloat and so much file messing around from here to there back here then a new there... Is it really necessary? Can't the Delphi installer be a bit more (read: a LOT more!) ...

My Second impressions of the Delphi 2007 Update 1

Me, Myself and Delphi – Well, this time, even though I have the ISO I downloaded last night, I choose to try the auto-updater. So, I fired up my Delphi VM and, as I write this, it's been 2 hours since it said the updates were ready to install and started installing them... No clue as to how many more and, unlike Nick said ...

My first impressions of the Delphi 2007 Update 1

Me, Myself and Delphi – + Update went well very smoothly (didn't time it as I used the time for having breakfast!) + Disk space required after the full install was more or less the same used previously: a couple MB less in some places a few more in others, but overall was only around 10 MB more. + Pressing F1 on a IDE ...

CodeGear: All customers are equal but some are (no longer) more equal than others

Me, Myself and Delphi – For those who missed a small subtlety with the latest Delphi 2007 update, there is now an ISO available for download from the registered users area! It's a 4.16 GB file and after a couple small problems I finally managed to download it. Just beware that, using the FTP link, it will incorrectly show ...
