WhoIsWho - обзор конкурсного проекта Приложение WhoIsWho - мобильный справочник корпоративных контактов. Основным "конкурентным" преимуществом (а проекты реально конкурировали между собой) стало 100% ориентированность под бизнес-потребности, доказательством чего послужило внедрение в конкретной компании.

C++Builder XE5 3D app for iOS - rotating Earth and Mars In this blog post we'll take a quick look at 3D iOS application programming using C++Builder XE5 Update 2. This application will contain two rotating planets - Earth and Mars using TSphere, TTextureMaterialSource and TFloatAnimation components. The rotation will be controlled by a TSwitch and the camera Z axis position will be controlled using a TTrackBar. To start the project I use the "File | New | FireMonkey Mobile Application - C++Builder" menu item and choose the "Blank Application" ...
Controlling my Philips Hue Lights using C++Builder for iOS Last Friday (January 31, 2014) in my blog post, "Managing my Philips Hue Lights from a C++Builder FireMonkey Desktop", I showed you how to use C++Builder XE5 to build a Windows (32 and 64 bit) and Mac OS X application to control my Philips Hue wireless LED lights. In this blog post, I will show you the screens and code for the C++Builder for iOS version of the project. I reused the code and the data module and built a mobile UI on the main form.

Planning a vacation? Do it mobile REST Client style using C++Builder and Delphi I am planning a vacation during my wife's winter break. To remind me of the number of days until I leave and to be able to see what's happening with the weather, I've built an iOS mobile application using C++Builder and Delphi (I finished the code for both versions and posted this blog while I was watching Seattle overwhelm Denver in the SuperBowl). The UI contains a TTabControl to contain three tabs for Weather, Browser and Settings. The app uses TGeocoder to get the latitude and longitu...

Using the REST Debugger will help you prototype your Delphi and C++ REST apps As part of the new addition of the REST Client Library components in Delphi, C++Builder and RAD Studio XE5, we also include a REST Debugger so that you can explore REST Services and use it to help prototype the property settings for your app's REST Client components. We also provide the source code to the REST Debugger and you can build other platform versions (Win64 and OSX) of the debugger. You can also customize and extend the REST Debugger to add capabilities you need in your own development...
