    Triggers from Bluetooth Beacons

    Hi, I've got a beacon that has a button to trigger actions. I can configure the actions. For example, I when the user pushed the button the beacon advertises a URL. In Delphi, I can identify the beacon and I can read all the device info. What I can not figure out is how to identify that the user has triggered the button and thus the URL has been transmitted. Does anyone know how to do this? Thanks

    Triggers from Bluetooth Beacons

    Yes, it looks like it resets the manager. But need to test with more beacons to see if it is a viable solution.

    Triggers from Bluetooth Beacons

    Yes of course I've seen that Well, this really depends on the context of your application. You can take a relevant action like show a message or initiate a process. For example, in shops, they place beacons near a group of products and then when the app detects the beacon, it shows some offers. The way it works is that TBeacon (which encapsulates the Beacon Manager) starts observing the bluetooth receiver and triggers events. For example, if a beacon is detected an event is triggered; similarly if a previously detected beacon is not active anymore, TBeacon sends another event. In my case, when the button is pressed, TBeacon raises an event and then my app runs some REST operations

    Triggers from Bluetooth Beacons

    Ok, I have managed to get the URL when the button is pressed but now I have another problem. My app responds to the trigger and actually finds the beacon only once. After it detects the trigger the first time, it is unable to redetect the beacon and the trigger. I use TBeacon Anyone any ideas?

    Keyboard Covers the Focused Controls

    @MikeMon Does the solution offered by @pietrt work? If you read the answer on stackoverflow, you'll see that a scrollable container is always required.
  6. Yesterday I reinstalled Delphi in a fresh machine and upon registration I got the error of maximum registrations. I emailed EMBA and today they replied that increasing the limit for my license is part of technical support and as I am not under active subscription they are not very keen on helping me with this issue. They also mention that " Historically, we provided limited support for activities such as changing registration limits as a courtesy. Going forward registration limit changes will have to be approved by Renewals. We are working to provide a more automated way to facilitate this service in the future or eliminate the need for it altogether.I have copied the renewals team in this email response (renewals@idera.com). Your renewals representative will be able to assist you with options to renew your support and maintenance, as well as facilitate the necessary registration increases." I don't know guys what you think but for me this is outrageous. Actually it is a deal breaker. I am not asking to receive new updates---just to use the license I paid on a new machine.

    Deal - breaker: Registration Limit Increase

    Anyone knows how is the license being checked? Does the IDE check with the license manager or the compiler runs its own checks as well?

    Deal - breaker: Registration Limit Increase

    @FredS Yes it took a week but to be fair the sales representative for the reseller I got the license moved role internally so let's say there was a delay irrelevent to EMBA. But in general it took 2-3 days to be sorted

    Ok, so today I received an email from the reseller and EMBA has bumped the license

    Components for monetize app (ads,...)

    I am interested in such components as well. Does TBannerAd still work? I think I read in a forum that it doesnt work with the latest versions of Android. Then, I have seen desktop applications using ad platforms in the same way as on mobiles. For example, TuneIn in the latest release uses Google Ads to show ads in a desktop app. So, I was thinking (but havent tried it yet) to add a TWebBrowser in a form and then link the content to Google Ads. Wouldn't this work?

    Deal - breaker: Registration Limit Increase

    Yeah, I found the behaviour odd myself too as in the past I have copied VMs several times, changed the hardware settings etc and never had Delphi lost the license details. Anyone knows if Delphi licensing considers the hard drive serial or something connected to the hard drive?

    Deal - breaker: Registration Limit Increase

    I have delphi in a VM and then I had this idea to cleanup and compact the image because it was eating 500GB. I had also to copy it to another drive cause my main HD was running out of space Then, when I launched Delphi it was asking to register

    @WillH Thanks for this. I had missed this discussion Yes, they will try to sell maintenance and new subscription

    @Marco Cantu Thanks for your reply. I contacted support but not the reseller. I will email them now and let you know if anything

    Scrollable forms is the way to deal with this. I use OrangeUI in one of my app and they have a way that manages it more smoothly and easier. But this is a totally different framework to use

    InterBase or Firebird?

    For projects with local database, I would go for sqlite as it doesn't require a DB server.

    Any update on the v10.3.3 release?

    @Joseph MItzen Who knows....

    Any update on the v10.3.3 release?

    I remember that as well..a bit sad in my view. So, there is Embarcadero and then there is Delphi's Product Manager. I wonder how this works... Feels like the product manager is a freelance and outsourced position

    @Serge_G Digging a bit from the link you added, here's an interesting project https://github.com/orwah/Arabic-Delphi-VCL-Units But it is for VCL only

    @Serge_G Thanks for the link. It looks your friend has made it work

    @Alexander Sviridenkov So, you don't use bitmaps on those platforms? but the native engines? Do your components support then RTL?

    @Serge_G How do you revert the order of the text that appears in the grid? The code you show just changes the justification not the order of the letters

    @limelect I haven't really tried FMXRTL as I did not have the time. But I did some research and couldn't find anything...sadly

    No worries. I emailed the owner of the page and the download links work. Thanks anyway

    I know Alcione but didn't know it has RTL components. I will check thanks
