FireMonkey Styles with Eugene Kryukov, webinar (recording)

Posted by on in Blogs
This video replays the webinar with Eugene Kryukov, one of FireMonkey architect and developer, on styles.

... and you'll see:

  • Styles is a fundamental mechanism, it's a must to use FireMonkey proper way and with maximum effectiveness.

  • Styles is not just skins.

  • Styles fully define the design of a control and its partial functionality. Here "partial functionality" means "visual behavior".

  • A component should always have some style. The component is structurally empty, if it doesn't possess a style.

  • There are different style types: "by default" and "custom".

  • A style can be built in the application, can be stored in an external file, but this difference is about storage only.

  • Styles can't be purely arbitrary, as they define the "visual functionality". Inventing a style, one should think over a particular component.

  • Styles are very flexible and universal mechanism, which needs deep understanding.
