  1. You can try our StyleControls VCL. It includes TscStyledForm component - it solve all problems with VCL Style for current form on High-DPI systems + you can add buttons and tabs in caption area. Also it has TscStyleManager component (one for application) to solve all problems with styled menus and common dialogs. For scaled messages you can use our scdialogs unit with scMessageDlg method and more. http://www.almdev.com

    [iOS] TNotificationCenter

    I think I found the reason: It has to do with the Loaded function when components are created procedure TNotificationCenterIOS.DidFormsLoad; begin FIsApplicationLoaded := True; NotifyDelayedNotifications; end; procedure TNotificationCenterIOS.DoLoaded; begin inherited; DidFormsLoad; end; procedure TCustomNotificationCenter.DoLoaded; begin if Supported then FPlatformNotificationCenter.DoLoaded; //<-- This is never loaded when created during runtime end; I have to simulate the Loaded function, so below is the workaround that fixes the behaviour: procedure TForm1.Notification_Center_Create( AOwner: TComponent ); begin FNotificationCenter := TNotificationCenter.Create( AOwner ); FNotificationCenter.OnReceiveLocalNotification := EvOnReceiveLocalNotification; FNotificationCenter.Loaded; //<-- this works and simulates the component "loaded" state end; I hope that it might be useful for somebody else too. All this was not nice to find, because the libraries also couldn't be debugged in my setting, for some reason. Usually I can debug all the included libraries. Anyway, I can get back to more productive coding again

    It is, because with software people always expect to get things cheaper and with discounts. Other things are just being paid for. I'll get out of this thread. I also think the initial question has been answered. Aurelius is a commercial alternative that offers a free-version without source that will help to get a better impression of the product.

    Yes, when someone from "outer world" comes to Delphi ecosystem IDE is the first thing to be discouraged with. Because there are many serious problems indeed. It's a good idea to take an existing high quality and extensible IDE and use it as a base for new Pascal IDE. I think it's much better than try to extend Delphi IDE with plugins. The base platform should be designed with many things in mind: indexing, threading, data integrity, real time code analysis, cross platform to name a few. UI is also an important (and often underestimated!) part. On the other side I see no reason to recreate a form designer. It's good enough in Delphi (or Lazarus). What's about a language server - it's good to have to bring Pascal support to many editors at once, but it's not a way for first-class IDE.

    Totally agree on the lure of RAD UI design and how it causes newbies to write code that is both relying on states in the UI as well as in their business model, instead of the UI reflecting states from the internal model and delivering changes to that model. As far as possible, I try to write my code without a UI, and I try to make the interfacing between the internal business logic and the UI as simple as possible, with the UI as far as possible being oblivious about why its values and settings are what they are. I often have separate reusable classes as glue between the UI and the biz objects, so that they remain isolated. The debugger is not fine when you venture past 32-bit single UI thread. The 64-bit Delphi debugger leaves so much to be desired, that it is better to do the debugging in a 32-bit version of the app. Multi-threaded debugging - combined with anonymous methods - often causes also the 32-bit debugger to stop working - such as not resuming after a break, or no longer breaking where it was supposed to. Debugging code that runs multiple identical threads is a challenge as there is no simple way to specify that you only want to debug a specific thread instance.

    The code editor works for me. I still use the Wordstar keyboard shortcuts as I did in the beginning of the 80s, programming in CP/M and then the MS-DOS environment. I turn off code completion, since that slows down typing and disrupts my intention more that it helps. My fingers do the typing, while I can concentrate on the code. The form designer is ok for layout. But there is one big shortcoming with how it lures a novice programmer to make a mess of separating the GUI from business logic. I wish a more sophisticated default scheme would be introduced to handle that. The error insight function is best turned off as well, since it introduces more doubts than it really helps. Comparing code is easy with the Beyond Compare plugin. The integration with different types of code repositories could be better. The debugger is fine and with the use of FastMM memory leaks are easy to find and remove. The biggest concern for me is not the state of the IDE. Every new version introduces errors in the compilers and the RTL. Using a new version in a 24/7 application is out of the question. I wish all Embarcaderos efforts could focus on bringing out quality compilers comparable with industry standard C++ compilers and a RTL that can be trusted.
