Updated Delphi Road Map

DaVinci Unlimited Software – Nick just posted an updated Delphi Road Map.  Check it out.  This looks to be one of the most significant Delphi releases in a long time.  This road map is just covers native code, not .NET - that will be in a future road map I guess.  Anonymous Methods, Generics and Unicode stand to be huge ...

Scripting Engine Unit Template

DaVinci Unlimited Software – I must say, Delphi Live Templates and the Scripting Engines are REALLY amazing.  I wanted to make a new scripting engine, but then I got to thinking that my scripting engines had a lot of similar code, so I figured I would make a Live Template to create Scripting Engines.  I based it on Nick’s ...

Delphi Random Class Namer

DaVinci Unlimited Software – Ever wonder what class to write next in Delphi?  Well, combine Delphi Live Templates (including a custom scripting engine) with www.ClassNamer.com and you never have to wonder again.

IE vs. Standards

DaVinci Unlimited Software – Joel once again has an interesting article about Marian Headphones. To sum up, IE8 defaults to standards compliant which breaks most of the existing web sites that worked around earlier version’s of IE’s poor standards compliance. Idealists believe that is great! Pragmatists believe ...

Marcus Oblak and D-Robots

DaVinci Unlimited Software – Back in November I hosted the Delphi Robot Rage competition as part of CodeRage. At the time I was unable to contact the author of D-Robots (the program we used). I am not sure if that was a result of outdated contact information or just poor luck (i.e. spam blockers). Well, I [...]

CodeRage II -> Delphi Robot Rage final standing

DaVinci Unlimited Software – The official standing of the bots was given during the live broadcast of the final session. Although if you run the bots in a new battle, chances are a different bot may win. There certainly is a bit of luck involved. Never the less, these are the official results. 1st Place - Brian [...]

C64 turns 25

DaVinci Unlimited Software – Thanks to Anders for letting me know the Commodore 64 turned 25! I was a big fan of the C64, but I didn’t know you could get Pascal for it. My programming was limited to Commodore Basic, but that was when I cut my teeth on programming and knew what I wanted to do when [...]

Multi-Class Class Helpers

DaVinci Unlimited Software – This is cool. I figured out a way to assign the same class helper to multiple classes in Delphi 2007. Marco Cantu asked me if I knew how to do this during CodeRage II, and then David I. mentioned that Class Helpers should be used to implement Aspect Orientated Programming (AOP), but since [...]

Crashing Like VB

DaVinci Unlimited Software – I always thought Delphi’s global exception handler was a great feature. It allows your program to continue after an otherwise unhandled exception would have caused it to terminate. Typically in a serious application you would assign your own global exception handler, or used one of the great ...
