Delphi 2005 Fix Roll-up... and then some.

Posted by on in Blogs
OK, I admit, it was getting a little unwieldy; Pushing out all these little fixes for Delphi 2005 with separate little zip files.  So i've now created a single cumulative zip file that contains all the previous fixes I've posted.  However, I wasn't content with just leaving things alone so I've also included some other little items.  Some of you have complained that in certain circumstances non-visual DB components are unselected when several are multi-selected and they are moved around on the form or data module.  You know what, you're right, that sucks!  The QC report can be found here.  So included in this roll-up is also a fix for that issue.  This may also fix some issues with collections and reording them in the structure view, but I haven't tested that fully.  So, that makes this patch a little more dicey since a lot more was changed in order to actually fix this issue.  Yes, this has already been checked into the DeXter branch and will be appearing in an internal build within the next day or so.  In fact, if you jump on this now, you may actually get to see this fix in Delphi 2005 before Borland's own internal QA gets a crack at it in DeXter... yep folks, it is that fresh!  Same disclaimers and warnings apply.  So, if you like the stinging feel of sweat dripping in your eyes as you launch the IDE for the first time after installing this patch, then by all means grab it here!

    Fantastic!



    As happens so very, very often though, all it will take is some *moron* to complain about this wonderful things you guys are doing for some reason and management will jump on you to stop doing it. Sad but true...



    In the mean time, Mr Bauer, YOU THE MAN!!!

    Allen,



    Please consider one of your update specials for this issue:



    Report No: 12889 ( RAID: 226744 ) Status: Open

    Translation Manager does not resize to fill the window area

    http://qc.borland.com/wc/qcmain.aspx?d=12889">http://qc.borland.com/wc/qcmain.aspx?d=12889



    thanks,

    Jeremy,



    Most of these fixes are ones I've either done myself or I have been directly involved with their investigation and resolution. The translation manager is far outside the scope of what I work with on a day-to-day basis. I also only push out fixed for areas of the product in which I am most comfortable either because I designed that particular sub-system or have done extensive work in that area and have a strong grasp of all the little gotchas.



    Finally, I'm only considering those items that tend bite a large portion of the customer base. To be perfectly frank, in this case, the translation manager and this defect in particulat doesn't quite have the "surface area" I'm looking for.



    FWIW, 226744 has been closed as a duplicate to 225563 which remains open at this time. The current priority appears to be such that it is in the list of items slated to be fixed in DeXter.

    Good work, Allen!



    Anyway, for those who've downloaded the fix,

    please run sn -Vr Borland.Studio.Vcl.Design.dll before starting http://www.borland.com/delphi" target="_blank">Delphi 2005.



    Otherwise, you'll run into a series of errors.

    Thanks Allen for the good work.

    I really want to know how to get rid of http://www.borland.com/delphi" target="_blank">Delphi load errors.

    Because, I could not find anything about running sn -Vr Borland.Studio.Vcl.Design.dll as Chee Wee mentioned.

    Bob Swart Tuesday, 13 September 2005

    Will: you've swapped the options. It should be -Vr (upper case V, lower case r).



    sn -Vr Borland.Studio.Vcl.Design.dll

    Is this Software Delivery Optimization? My customers won't like it... ;-)

    Bob Swart Tuesday, 13 September 2005

    Allen, I still get an error about one or more types in Borland.Studio.Vcl.Design.dll that could not be loaded, even after running sn -Vr on it.



    Copying the backup version (of Update #3) back into BDS\3.0\Bin made that error go away. So I don't have the last fix, but I can live with that.



    Thanks for all your hard work on making these unofficial fixes available. You're a true http://www.borland.com/delphi" target="_blank">Delphi Hero!

    Very nice. Now there is only one bug that is even more visible and annoying, and that bugs me (and many more) on a daily basis. It's related to the design surface also. Look at report 13691 for info.



    It involved forms popping in front of the object inspector whenever hints are generated. And it is extremely annoying.



    If it where to be fixed, D2005 would be good enough for me to use it as the no.1 IDE instead of D7.
