    YES INDEED. That explains the mystery. It almost drove me crazy.

    32bit VCL Windows. I have the issue with both runtime and design time packages. Try to open for example the D10_4 packages of github.com/EtheaDev/SVGIconImageList

    Starting from Syndey update 2, I am experiencing the folowing: Open in the IDE packages with no LIBSUFFIX or a LIBSUFFIX different that auto. LIBSUFFIX 270 is added automatically and the package is named accordingly Open project options and remove the LIBSUFFIX has no effect. Next time you open the project options is back there. Removing the LIBSUFFIX directive from the package source also has no effect on the package name. It seems that the IDE is enforcing the LIBSUFFIX 270. I have not found a workaround. You can still compile the packages from the command-line though. Am I missing something?

    SetLength TBytes Memory Leak

    FYI Added stCleanRawStack JclStackTrackingOptions option that eliminates … · project-jedi/jcl@4867c10 (github.com)
  5. Not quite. WebAssembly (WASM in short) is a binary executable format supported by all major browsers. See WebAssembly. Various compilers of different programming languages produce WASM code. Fpc is already moving ahead with support for Webassembly target. See WebAssembly/Roadmap - Lazarus wiki (freepascal.org). Overall WebAssembly is an alternative to compilation to JS. .Net has already a WASM target they call Blazor.

    Error 87: Could not open Dll "python38.dll"

    The DLLPath was always meant to be the full path to the DLL. If it worked it was by accident rather than by design. Why don't you just use: PythonEngine.DllPath := TPath.Combine(ExtractFilePath(Application.ExeName), 'Python') in the OnBeforeLoad event for instance?

    Tutorials on Python-Lazarus

    Have a look at the Webinars at python4delphi/Tutorials at master · pyscripter/python4delphi (github.com), The Webinar II video covers the creation of extension modules. The demo code is for Delphi. Quite a bit of that can be easily adapted for Lazarus or you can use the Delphi Community edition.
  8. Mostly agree. The problem with TEdit is a Windows and not a Delphi one. Notepad and VSCode have similar issues. If you are not rendering text it probably does not matter. I got interested in this because SynEdit does not handle complex unicode characters well. Other scenarios for using libraries such as ICU include proper sorting of multi-lingual text, proper change of capitalization, string normalization etc. (I mean better in corner cases than what Windows provides and more compatible with Unicode standards),
  9. It appears that ICU is the way to go. ICU is now bunded in Windows, .NET 5 is based on ICU, also android Unicode and internationalization support | Android Developers and iOS ICU usage in Swift - Development / Standard Library - Swift Forums
  10. And attached here is a text element enumerator that handles 🤷🏽‍♀️ correctly using ICU. Note though that the Edit Box and the List Box do not display 🤷🏽‍♀️correctly (shown as two characters). The content of the EditBox is åá̂̃̄🤷🏽‍♀️ (copied and pasted here). EnumTextElements.pas
  11. I did say I did not test . One missing line now added to the code. (FStart := FEnd); Works as expected in: var TestString := 'å'+#$0061#$0301#$0302#$0303#$0304; for var S in TextElements(TestString) do Writeln(S); and yes it does not work as it should with complex emojis. Interestingly even VScode does not handle 🤷🏽‍♀️ correctly. Paste the symbol and then try to delete it with Backspace. It takes pressing backspace multiple time to actually delete this emoji.
  12. CharNext does handle surrogate pairs, diacritics and other multi-codepoint sequences reasonably well. Cleary it does not handle emojis well. Nor does any other Windows function that I know of. But I was mostly trying to show that doing the text enumeration is the easy part. The .NET 5 unicode support is based on the ICU library. See Globalization and ICU | Microsoft Docs for details. There is an ICU Delphi wrapper but it has not been updated for years. ICU has been included in the Windows Creators update. The dll names the the header files are listed here. It would be nice to have translations of the headers to pascal and even better some higher level wrappers.
  13. Here is an implementation of a TextElementEnumerator (not tested): Note that in Windows CharNext is the best but still not perfect way to get text elements. See What('s) a character! | The Old New Thing (microsoft.com) You should then be able to write code such as: for var Element in TextElements(MyString) do: interface type TTextElementEnumerator = record private FStart: PChar; FCurrent: string; public constructor Create(const AValue: string); function MoveNext: Boolean; inline; function GetCurrent: string; inline; property Current: string read GetCurrent; end; TTextElementEnumeratorHelper = record private FString: string; public constructor Create(const AValue: string); function GetEnumerator: TTextElementEnumerator; end; function TextElements(const AValue: string): TTextElementEnumeratorHelper; implementation {$REGION Text Element Enumberator} { TTextElementEnumerator } constructor TTextElementEnumerator.Create(const AValue: string); begin FStart := PWideChar(AValue); end; function TTextElementEnumerator.GetCurrent: string; begin Result := FCurrent; end; function TTextElementEnumerator.MoveNext: Boolean; Var FEnd : PWideChar; begin if FStart^ = #0 then Exit(False); FEnd := Windows.CharNext(FStart); SetString(FCurrent, FStart, FEnd - FStart); FStart := FEnd; Result := True; end; { TTextElementEnumeratorHelper } constructor TTextElementEnumeratorHelper.Create(const AValue: string); begin FString := AValue; end; function TTextElementEnumeratorHelper.GetEnumerator: TTextElementEnumerator; begin Result.Create(FString); end; function TextElements(const AValue: string): TTextElementEnumeratorHelper; begin Result.Create(AValue); end; {$ENDREGION}

    Py4Delphi and Python's subprocess

    TPythonGUIInputOutput only captures output sent to to sys.stdout and sys.stderr. It will not capture the output generated by sub-processes and printed to the console. You can capture the output of sub-processes and make it available to Delphi or print it from the script that creates the sub-processes. See subprocess — Subprocess management — Python 3.9.2 documentation for details

    Access Violation python39.dll

    Have you seen the last comment in AttributeError: partially initialized module 'cv2' has no attribute 'VideoCapture' · Issue #303 · pyscripter/python4delphi (github.com) I am not sure whether specifying the dependency with a manifest file as in P4DPython26 · pyscripter/python4delphi Wiki (github.com) might help. A minimal script reproducing the error would be a lot more helpful instead of your long python script.
