Custom FireMonkey "TSimpleTriangle" component Have you ever written a component in Delphi? Reusable components are the corner-stone of rapid application development and important part of Delphi success on the market. Being able to manipulate an instance of a class at design-time is where Delphi shines! One day I was looking at mocking up a FireMonkey turn-based board game. A screen with a board and names of two opponents. Next to every name - a turn indicator with a player score and ranking. In a typical design turn indicator is a triang...

DelphiLive! 2009 was excellent:-) I'm back from DelphiLive! 2009 conference and I'm very excited about Delphi and where it is going. Delphi developers were so happy to see how relevant Delphi is in the modern world of computing. After plenty of disclaimers we saw some of the features for upcoming Delphi "Weaver" release and beyond. Marco Cantu posted nice summaries on his blog from conference Day 2 and Day 3 (Day 1&4 was pre- and post-conference tutorials) and here is the summary from Nick Hodges: "DelphiLive was a real g...
Extending Delphi 2009 With OpenTools API: Getting Started Did you know that it is so easy to extend Delphi 2009 IDE? Delphi 2009 provides a dedicated Open Tools API interface that let you interact and extend the functionality of the Delphi and C++Builder 2009 IDE. "Eric's Open Tools API FAQ and Resource" is probably the best place to learn about Open Tools API. Eric Berry is well known in Delphi community as author of GExperts extension to all versions of Delphi and also as expert on Tools API itself. In this post I would like to provide step-by-...

"TDoubleBufferAll" component and Luxembourg Delphi Launch Seminar Last week on the train from the Luxembourg Delphi 2007 and Delphi for PHP launch event I was thinking about Delphi 2007 support for Vista-specific features (so great they you can power the laptop while in the train). It is so much fun to demo Delphi 2007 forms with areas of glass-like transparency and making all kinds of jokes in between:-) Below some photos from the event. It was probably the first Delphi seminar ever in the city and country of Luxembourg. Delphi 2007 support for variou...
SOA with the "Interfaced Singleton" Pattern Delphi Wizard I found myself reusing the same pattern over and over again in different Delphi projects. This pattern is useful to introduce a logical layer into the application design to abstract an underlying implementation of arbitrary service, and is handy for writing easy to maintain client code with minimum number of hardcoded dependencies. I call it "Interfaced Singleton" pattern and have created for it a special OpenTools API wizard that integrates with Delphi 2006 IDE and can generate units for Delphi...
XML Documentation Viewer Wizard for Delphi 2005 ... is available for download from Borland Code CentralTwo years ago I've been sitting at the C#Builder Train-The-Trainer course with other consultants and presales here in the Amsterdam office. Our master trainer Juan was covering some real basic stuff, so I thought I'd rather try to write a little application for learning purposes. We were in the middle of discussion how potentially useful is C# XML Documentation feature to automate documentation creation. Quick search on the Internet revea...
