Cool stuff: Multiple dockable editor windows for RADStudio RADSplit by Simon Stuart is a plugin for RAD Studio (Delphi and C++ Builder 2007 to XE2) that enables you to make multiple Editor Windows into Dockable Editor Windows...
Playing sound on iOS? Anyone have a working Delphi XE2 FireMonkey sample? I wish I had time for everything... I've tried this one a couple of times, but have run into issues with parsing framework this and that... ;) So, here it is... Anyone got a simple example that plays a single sound effect and/or plays a background track? From files that you deploy with the app (resources). Background track from existing music library on device would be a sweet bonus. I'll make sure you get credit if I use it in upcoming blogs, webinars, etc. Thanks!...
3 more iOS components added - Pinch/Zoom/Rotate gesture recognizers plus a custom switch I've uploaded three more components to CodeCentral. There are now 13 components and 8 demos in my submission. The three components added: PinchGestureRecognizer - zoom/pinch RotationGestureRecognizer - rotation Switch - custom labels for TSwitch - ON/OFF or YES/NO (or any 1-4 letter words you want) Enjoy!...
Modifying FMX_Platform_iOS.pas to support surface mainWindow and add device orientation support Here are the steps that I use in order to surface a couple of things that some of my custom iOS components and apps need. These modifications are not supported by anyone. Except maybe me. You apply them entirely at your own risk. Modify FMX_Platform_iOS.pas on your MAC as below. It's typically located in the /Developer/Embarcadero/fmi directory. CAUTION: Save a copy of FMX_Platform_iOS.pas FIRST! CAUTION: Any update of XE2 will delete your changes, so keep this file around if you have ...

iOS Formula Keyboard Just a teaser. I'll probably add this as an InAppPurchase for MathViz when I make MathViz free. ;) Thanks to those who bought MathViz already! 25 copies sold for $0.99 each in 4 days! Enough for a couple of six packs for the office. ;) PS: Source code for this one coming too. Mainly custom style work in this one....
May the Force be with you! (and MyEDN for iOS) Happy Star Wars Day! MyEDN was originally submitted to the AppStore for review on April 9th. My first mistake was not including, setting up and populating a test account for Apple to test MyEDN. DOH! That cost me about a week, because the review process is clocking at about 6-7 days it seems. They sent me a request to update the review notes with a test account and test instructions, and finally submit the new meta data. Unfortunately the reviewer had put MyEDN in the wrong state, an...
MathViz 1.0 for iOS approved and in the AppStore now!!! MathViz 1.0 AppStore link Before you ask why it's $0.99 and not free - I wanted to see if I could get a FireMonkey paid app approved, and I'm very happy to say that I could. And anyone can, of course! I will leave it at $0.99 for the next couple of weeks, and anyone that wants to "donate" to a lunch, dinner, party or whatever it turns out to be, can do so in the next couple of weeks. After that it will become free for all. The link above is live, but it will take up to 24 hours for Math...
Bezier Surface Visualization (from Turbo Pascal to Delphi FireMonkey) Today I have been presenting "FireMonkey 3D Programming" session on the SDE event in Zeist in the Netherlands. Bob Swart was so kind and invited me to present on the first session of the day in the "Delphi" conference track and I wanted to prepare a brand new demo to show off the power of FireMonkey. There is more and more FireMonkey resources available online, including new "FireMonkey blog", FireMonkey Info page, FireMonkey quickstart tutorials and many more. Some of the best FireMonkey cod...
Delphi Developer Days and Free Evening Events this week I'm headed to Delphi Developer Days to do the Embarcadero keynote as well as a free evening event in each city - Washington DC (BWI area) and Chiacgo. Don't miss free food, drink and potentially valuable discounts at these events! See you there!...

Math parsing function/component anyone? I'm looking for a reasonably light-weight, simple and fast math function parser. It should not be a DLL. I need it to work on Windows, MacOSX and iOS. I would use it in a demo I want to build. It must be able to parse and evaluate functions of (at least) two variables, for instance f(x,y) = sin(x^2+y^2)/(x^2+y^2). I would use it like this (pseudo code): FuncTree := BuildEvalTree('f(x,y) = sin(x^2+y^2)/(x^2+y^2)'); // Or whatever it needs for x := x_min to x_max do for y := y_min to y_...
