Building Mobile Apps for iOS and Android from One Codebase webinar, Feb 22, 11am Amsterdam Why Delphi and C++Builder are unique on the developer tools market today? There are many other development environments, many different programming languages, but there is no other tool, that makes it possible to build natively compiled apps from one codebase for all major mobile and desktop operating systems including iOS, Android, Windows, Mac and Linux! On the lowest level there are many different compilers for C++ and Object Pascal languages in RAD Studio that can generate native executable...

TCalendarView Custom Painting The latest version of RAD Studio 10.1 Berlin Anniversary Edition introduced among other things two brand new VCL controls: TCalendarView and TCalendarPicker. Now there is in total 7 different VCL controls in the "Windows 10" category in the Tool Palette. The best thing about these controls is that they do have Windows 10 look-and-feel, but they are pure VCL, so they do not depend on Windows 10 API and as such can be used for example on Windows 7. I really like to play with them and "TCalendar...

"WhileNotEof" or Anonymous Code in Real World One observation struck me while looking though some existing database access code. There is code that opens a select SQL query, iterates through it while "EOF" flag is not true and then closes the query. FDQuery1.Open; try while not FDQuery1.Eof do begin // access fields in the current record here FDQuery1.Next; end; finally FDQuery1.Close; end; How such code could be parameterised to avoid repetitions and reduce the number of lines? The thing is that the code th...

Beacons and Delphi in Amsterdam It is the second day of CodeRage XI today! CodeRage is Embarcadero's annual online developer conference and I'm kicking off the Day 2 with my presentation about "Beacons and Delphi in Amsterdam". During the session I'm going to demonstrate how to build mobile apps with Delphi and C++Builder that are using beacons for accurate location information. I'm also going to show practical examples of using Delphi with Amsterdam Open Beacon Network and Amsterdam Open Data integration. Here are the slide...
Building Scalable REST APIs with RAD Server and RAD Studio You have this Delphi Windows database application and you are just not sure how to move it to the cloud, extend to multiple users, move to the web... Just few days Nick Hodges posted on his blog a real world RAD Server story that intrigued me. Good start for more technical stuff. I guess you know Delphi. You want to learn more about RAD Server? Please join me for the free developer webinar on November 10th (Thursday) where I'm going to talk about using Delphi and RAD Server for publishing ...

IoTLivingLab Workshop at Amsterdam DataLab One of the coolest things for me this week was attending "Kickstarting IoT Initiatives" meetup with Maxime from Barsten in Amsterdam DataLab. This iotlivinglab session in Amsterdam DataLab was very inspiring. Combining data available from the cloud with information received from IoT sensors by a mobile device opens a lot of possibilities to create new generation user experience.  It was great to see IoT enthusiasts brainstorming about IoT-related initiatives that can benefit citizens of...
Using "reFind" tool to migrate BDE app to FireDAC with Delphi 10.1 Two weeks ago I was contributing to a bigger Delphi migration webinar run by my colleague Stephen Ball the demonstration of actual steps of live migration of BDE-based source code to FireDAC. Migration of existing VCL projects to the latest version of Delphi is the hot topic in Delphi community. Many migration tasks can be automated. Today at the Developer Conference in Tel Aviv Embarcadero MVP Oren Aviram is demonstrating "Software Modernization Made Easy" with his powerful...

Cuestión de volumen… Hace unos días se planteaba en el clubdelphi una cuestión acerca de la gestión de volúmenes en los dispositivos Android. Me llamó la atención porque días atrás me había planteado la cuestión de poder disponer de "perfiles de audio" en mi propio teléfono Android. Se trata de un Xiaomi con versión KitKat instalada y una ROM personalizada. ¿Cómo podemos desde Delphi acceder a los volúmenes del dispositivo para las diferentes características (música, alarmas, llamadas,....

Delphi Benelux 2016 Congress I'm just sitting at the break at Delphi Benelux 2016 Congress in Eindhoven in the south of the Netherlands. It is a real Delphi technology fest with three simultaneous tracks (developer productivity, IoT/mobile and Enterprise) with international Delphi expert speakers including Bob Swart, Danny Wind and Stephen Ball. The conference started from the pre-recorded keynote by Embarcadero's General Manager Atanas Popov. Then I had a pleasure of doing the technical keynote part showcasing new and ...
RAD Studio 10.1 event in Warsaw, Poland Just back from Warsaw, the capital of Poland, from the RAD Studio 10.1 "Berlin" event yesterday, that attracted many Delphi and C++Builder developers! It is incredible how well the new version of Delphi and C++Builder was received by Polish developers. There was plenty of questions during the break and at the Q&A session at the end of the event. That's always a good sign! It is true that RAD Studio, Delphi and C++Builder 10.1 Berlin provide you with the fastest way to develop applic...
