Hi Roger,
1. Thanks for your advice
2. Unfortunately, even after setting a break-point in an "asm" section, running and stopping there, I could not manage to get what you tell me.
-> Have you some simple steps that I could reproduce?
Thanks in advance

I still do not understand what makes the advantage of using "shift +F7" vs the classic "F7"
Thanks in advance for your help

Didier Cabalé created a new topic ' "Trace to next source line" (shift +F7)' in the forum. 2 days ago

Hi there,

when I want to know in which case I should use "Trace to next source line" (shift +F7)), I don't find many helpful information:
Delphi help says this -> docwiki.embarcadero.com/RADStudio/Berlin..._to_Next_Source_Line
Marco Cantu says here :
"A third option, Trace to Next Source Line (Shift + F7), will move control to the
next line of the source code of your program being executed, regardless of the control
flow. This source code line might be the following line of the source code (as in a Step
Over command), a line inside a function called by your code (as in a Trace Into
command), or a line of code inside an event handler or a callback function of the program
activated by the system".


But this does not tell me in which specific use case this action is interesting to be used, and especially vs the standard "Step over" (F8) and "Trace into" (F7)
Have someone a clearer idea?
Thanks in advance

Didier Cabalé created a new topic ' "Private" topic's Category /topic's Category change' in the forum. 1 month ago

Hi there,
I realized that I misplaced a new topic I posted, about FireMonkey: instead of "Application Development - UI" category, I put it on "Private - FieldTest - Aitana - FireMonkey" category.
The user that I am should not be tempted to place the subject in the wrong category. Why? Because if he places a post in a "Private" descendant Category, this has the very unlucky consequence that *his post will never be referenced* for not logged-in users (cf Firemonkey_post_whenlogged.jpg and Firemonkey_post_whennotlogged.jpg)
Therefore:
1. It is very important for a user to be able to modify his post Category, once already posted.
If not, then the post has big chances to remain unanswered, because unseen by most forum users.
2. It is very important to remind to the user that he is about to post in a "Private" descendant Category.
Thanks for your action.

preamble for the webmaster: the attachment is accessible only when in "Reply" mode

Ok, now I understand the conditions:
1. Firemonkey application, with, at design-time, a TListBox.
2. TSearchBox as TListBox child, added at run-time.
3. State that, magically, the TSearchBox filters the TListBox content.
The DocWiki pageDocWiki says: "TSearchBox is an edit control that provides search capabilities such as filtering the result in the parent"

Thanks for reminding us this capability.

> if i add a searchbox control and set it parent to my listbox ..

I understand that you use the *FMX* TListView control with the SearchVisible property set to true, that makes embed a TSearchBox inside the TListView at its top.
If you use the *VCL* TListView or TListBox, then you cannot embed a TSearchBox inside.
Preferably, could you please attach a sample project describing your starting situation in order to avoid useless assumptions.

1. I could not add any standalone FMX.TSearchBox, because as the says DocWiki TSearchBox help : "TSearchBox is an edit control that provides search capabilities such as filtering the result in the parent."

2. Thus I understand that you use the *FMX* TListView (not TListBox) control with the SearchVisible property set to true, that makes embed a TSearchBox inside the TListView at its top. Correct?

3. If you use the *VCL* TListView or TListBox, then you cannot embed a TSearchBox inside.

Preferably, could you please attach a sample project describing your starting situation in order to avoid useless assumptions.

Didier Cabalé replied to the topic 'searchbox - how to start the search by first char' in the forum. 6 months ago

1. not sure to understand correctly your question: what is an "automatic search"? search start after typing the 1 char or after typing 2 chars? what is your "listbox" ragarding the TSearchBox?
2. if I assume you want to run a search after the 1st char is typed, then why would'nt you run your search on the TSearchBox.OnChange event (leaving nil the classical TSearchBox.OnInvokeSearch)?

Didier Cabalé replied to the topic 'Need help to transfer XE5 to XE10.2 project Delphi' in the forum. 7 months ago

Hi Thomas,
to assign properly to your "smoothgroups" variable, you will have to:
1. declare "smoothgroups" as a proper type, like TArrayOfSmoothGroups, instead of simply declaring it like a "Array of TSmoothGroup"
2. dereference your pointer, and cast its reference, because it is untyped. Which gives something like "SmoothGroups := TArrayOfSmoothGroups(YourPointer^)"
