Jessie created a new topic ' Can I disable the Navigation Toolbar in Seattle?' in the forum. 6 years ago

Does anyone know how to disable the Navigation Toolbar at the top of the code editor in Delphi 10 Seattle? In XE8 I could start bds.exe with a -NOCASTALIA switch to disable the castalia "features". Now that it's been integrated into the IDE, I don't see how to remove this NavBar.
I have found the options to disable Structural Highlighting and Flow Control Highlighting but this NavBar doesn't appear to have an option to disable. At least I can't find it. I'd be perfectly happy hacking the registry if that's what it takes to get rid of this IDE component. I'm just not sure where (or if) I could do that.
In case you're wondering why I want to do this: I'm having some very annoying performance issues with the new IDE; random unresponsiveness, source code not rendering correctly in the editor, etc. I want to eliminate the possibility that this feature is the cause of the problem. Beyond that, this Navigation Bar takes up space that I could use to view another line of code and provides nothing of value to me.
Thanks for any help you might be able to provide!

Done. The number I think you are looking for is RSP-11205.

Here's the URL to the issue: quality.embarcadero.com/browse/RSP-11205

or, perhaps the InternalTrackingLink?: http://vmsfjira:8665/browse/RS-63363

Thank you!

Does anyone know if there was an intentional change to the way TDS debug files are created in XE8?

I delivered our first application build using XE8 to QA and they began having a lot of issues with automated test scripts developed for Test Complete. It appears that something with the TDS file has changed preventing the test script from referencing certain components by name. One specific example is a ToolButton on a ToolBar.

In XE7 and earlier, The TestComplete script could reference a ToolBar button like this:

Aliases.Project1.Form1.ToolButton1.Click(12, 12);

With XE8, the ToolButton1 name is not recognized, forcing the option of referencing the ToolButtons by index:
Aliases.Project1.Form1.ToolBar1.ClickItem(0, false);

I know some might say this is SmartBear's problem (developers of TestComplete) but their software isn't what's changed. I put together a test app with a form, toolbar and toolbutton and compiled it with the same options in XE7 and XE8, including the linker option of placing debug information in a separate TDS file. TestComplete recognizes the tool button by name with the XE7 EXE+TDS files but not with the XE8-created files.

Our QA group has over 2000 automation scripts which will be affected by this, so I'm hoping there's something I can do to alleviate this for them, other than having my dev team revert back to XE7.

Thanks for any insight you can provide.

P.s. I tried posting this to the new "Answers" page but it refuses(!) to submit when I click that button.

Question about the Quality Portal. I was going to submit what I believe to be a bug in XE8 but I only see two projects available to select from: "AppMethod" and "RAD Studio Quality Portal". Is this not the place to submit bugs for RAD Studio itself? I don't appear to have the ability to submit to Quality Central anymore so I'm not sure where else I'd do this. Any advice?

It's been so long just using my email address that I considered that to be my login. Looking up what the actual EDN login and using it proved successful in allowing me to login to the Quality Portal. Thanks for the tip.

Any plans on changing that to allow email address?

Sorry about the miscategorized message. There wasn't a category that seemed appropriate for this topic (I couldn't select "general") so I just picked one.

I am having a problem with the TDS files created by XE8 and went to submit a QC report to seek help on the issue. That's when I discovered Embarcadero's new Quality Portal. That's great, except it won't let me login using my Embarcadero Developer Network credentials. I've tried multiple times with multiple browsers and I'm certain I've entered them correctly - I used the same credentials to post this message.

So, I went to the new Answers section of this community website to ask if others were having the same problem as me. With "Answers" I am able to successfully login and get to the "Ask a Question" page but when I click Submit, nothing happens. I've tried Firefox, IE and Chrome with the same result. Interestingly the Cancel button works just fine. Is that just a subtle way of letting me know that my questions are unwanted, or are others experiencing the same problem here as well?

Thanks for any input you can provide.
