Some stuff about Delphi 10 Seattle

By | 2017-02-16T18:02:35+00:00 November 19, 2015 7:08 pm|Uncategorized|

This isn't quite what I'd call a review; it's more like: I've been using Delphi 10 Seattle for a while now, and this is what I've liked, or found interesting :-) I've been very slightly behind the changes that have been happening with Delphi, so forgive me if I mention something that was included in [...]

Moving controls into view when the virtual keyboard is shown, revisited

By | 2017-02-16T18:02:36+00:00 November 19, 2015 6:16 pm|Uncategorized|

Just over 2 years ago, I posted this article: http://delphi.radsoft.com.au/2013/10/moving-controls-into-view-when-the-virtual-keyboard-is-shown/ Well, a little water has passed under the bridge since then, in terms of the changes to Delphi (I think I used XE5 for that article?), and in terms of my thinking. A recent task at work had me thinking there could be a more [...]

Fixing a detail insert bug in FireDAC with LiveBindings

By | 2017-02-16T18:02:36+00:00 April 23, 2015 8:19 am|Code tips, Patches|

I've recently started a project in Delphi XE8 that has me using Delphi a lot more again. It's designed to be cross-platform, however for now the GUI side uses VCL controls, so the initial iteration is going to be restricted to Windows. I'll be re-using the back end however, so FireDAC was chosen for database [...]

XE8.. bringing 64 bit goodness to iOS

By | 2015-04-13T09:51:06+00:00 April 13, 2015 9:51 am|Uncategorized|

RAD Studio XE8 has recently been released, and with it comes support for compiling your iOS apps for 64 bit devices. Now, if only I had one! Looks like I'll be bugging my girlfriend to borrow her phone for testing on the device ;-) There's also a stack other new features and bug fixes. Check [...]

Delphi… Out Of This World!

By | 2017-02-16T18:02:36+00:00 November 17, 2014 3:58 pm|Uncategorized|

Back in 2002, a developer named Kristofer Skaug posted in the Delphi forums about a project he was working on. I don't recall seeing the post myself, however it came as no surprise when I learned of where that project is now. The people at Embarcadero tell the rest of the story, here: Embarcadero Delphi [...]

Making XE7 projects compile for iOS 8.0

By | 2014-10-20T09:46:34+00:00 October 20, 2014 9:46 am|Uncategorized|

Whilst updating this demo project, and compiling for the device (in my case iOS 8.0, as I have Xcode 6.0.1), I received an error as outlined in this post on the Embarcadero community website. As per the response from Stefan D on October 4th, a solution has been posted, here. To save wading through that, [...]

Jumping into XE7

By | 2017-02-16T18:02:36+00:00 October 19, 2014 6:33 pm|Uncategorized|

Over the past year, I've been working full time on projects for a government department of my home state, South Australia. In those projects we're using mainly jQuery, jQuery Mobile, and HTML5. I've also been spending a fair amount of time with my girlfriend, and playing music (I play bass guitar), so I've had less [...]

Delphi XE5 Update 2

By | 2013-12-20T14:50:53+00:00 December 20, 2013 2:50 pm|Updates news|

If you haven't done so already, I suggest you download and install Update 2 for Delphi XE5. If you apply Update 2 and you're already using any of my patches, make sure you don't include them when you rebuild your project, as they may conflict with the changes in Update 2, some of which I [...]
