Borland OWL to C++ Builder VCL Every once in a while, I get a request to help migrate Borland OWL applications to C++ Builder VCL applications. Background The Object Windows Library (OWL) is a C++ object-oriented application framework designed to simplify desktop application development for Windows. OWL was introduced by Borland in 1991 and eventually deprecated in 1997 in favor of their Visual Component Library(VCL). Its primary competitor was the Microsoft Foundation...

RAD Studio 10.2.2 Tokyo February 2018 Patch Re-Released Last week, Embarcadero released a patch for Tokyo 10.2.2, focused on Android and RTL improvements. What happened is that Windows would not always ask for execution with admin account (on systems with active User Account Control) and could end up copying the replacement files in a wrong location. It did affect a few of the developers who tried it, so we pulled it, fixed the installer and now re-issued the patch. If you are a registered user of Tokyo (or have a license for it), you can find it at...

Collecting Multiple Pages of REST Results in a Single MemTable I’ve run into this a few times, where a REST Service returns results in pages, so you have to make multiple passes to get all the data. One thing I love about the RAD REST Client Library is the ability to store all the data in the FDMemTable where you can work on it. Unfortunately when you can only get part of the results that limits the functionality. Here is a simple solution to get all the pages in a single FDMemTable. What you need is a second FDMemTable. My first one is called MembersTempT...

Delphi 23 and Delphi 10.2.3 Today is Delphi's 23rd birthday.

Of course, the IDE, language and frameworks have evolved and keep evolving -- developers using them can modernize their apps without ...
