RAD Studio 10 "Seattle" on the road... It has been less than a month since the newest RAD Studio, C++Builder and Delphi version 10 "Seattle" have been released. I'm enjoying every single moment using it and also showing the new and improved features to developers in different countries. Back from the first round of events, so sharing photos would be in place. Unfortunately not from every event there are good quality ones, but just few highlights. I was doing keynote at the BIG DELPHI conference in Leiden that attracted many develope...
Using the new Windows 10 TMultiView mode in your FireMonkey applications TMultiView is a smart menu component for FireMonkey applications that makes it really easy to create app navigation that automatically adjusts itself depending on form factor, orientation and target platform. TMultiView is a container component which means that you can parent many different components to it, such as a top aligned TToolbar or a client aligned TListview.Depending on device and orientation, the application menu will be displayed as a drawer on smaller form factors, a docked panel f...

New per-DPI awareness in VCL applications In RAD Studio 10 Seattle, we've added per-DPI awareness in the VCL. This means that, when moving a form from one monitor to another one that has different DPI, the VCL form and the controls will be rescaled according to the new DPI, with no specific coding needed (video included below).As a testing scenario, and for this demos: we've setup 3 monitors that have different DPIs: After that, we ran a sample VCL application and the Visual Studio DPI Awareness Tutorial application side by side.

Download an image in background with Android Services Included in RAD Studio 10 Seattle is a new feature called “Android Services” that allows an Android application to perform background tasks. Jim McKeeth has created a fantastic post to help you get started with Android Services that I highly recommend having a look at: http://delphi.org/2015/09/minimalistic-android-service-with-delphi-10-seattle/ We’ve prepared a simple demo that will launch a service to download an image from a given URL, and send a notification once the download is completed.  To compile the source included for this demo, please follow these steps: Compile the service Add the Android Service to the main application by right-clicking the Android platform. This will launch the “Add new Android service” demo. Select the Android Service base path Check that everything is correct and click Finish to complete the process of adding a new Android service. Delete DownloadServiceUnit.pas from the DownloadImage project. After that, everything is ready to compile and deploy to your device.   Below you see a video showing this demo in action. In this video, I am initiating an image download, but then close the application. In that case, the background service continues to download the image in the background even though the application that originally made the request to download the image is no longer running. As you can see in the end, a notification is shown indicating that the image download has been completed successfully.  Download_Image_Service_demo   Source code: DownloadImageServiceDemo

Minimalistic Android Service with Delphi 10 Seattle I always love making minimalistic demos because then you can see all the essential parts. I put together this short video with Delphi 10 Seattle to show the minimal parts necessary for to create an Android service. It is so simple. The Seattle release supports 4 different types of Android services. One thing this demo does show that is optional, is it create a sticky service that will relaunch if pushed out of memory. It doesn't show how to talk to methods on the service - there are a few ways, which I can cover later.
