    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

    Keyboard Covers the Focused Controls

    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
  17. Hi all, I am setting up a new startup company to produce software for education. I am looking for someone with experience in product management who will act as advisor. At the moment there is no budget for salary or fees but I am very happy to give away a percentage of the company. The role will not involve any development but I want to have someone to discuss technological choices, directions and decisions. If you are interested please drop me an email. I am happy to have a call or a skype chat. Thanks John

    Changes in Parallel Library

    Recently I added code to this amazing library https://github.com/WladiD/AnyiQuack to work on FMX. It offers some interesting animation and it relies on PPL.

    @limelectHave you got the demo to share? Are there any other components/solutions?

    Changes in Parallel Library

    And what keeps me away from OTL is cross-platform implementation. These days I only touch FMX apps

    Changes in Parallel Library

    My experience is the same as @pyscripter's I use PPL quite extensively and any bottlenecks appear with programming logic and some other tasks (with server requests the main one) The major problem I have come across is that WaitForAll does not behave as expected in many cases but I found that rewriting the tasks in ITasks can fix this

    Embedded MongoDB

    Hi, does anyone have experience with MongoDB? Can it be used as a standalone file? Without the need for the end user to install a separate server with an app? Like an sqlite stand-alone db? Thx
  23. John Kouraklis

    Embedded MongoDB

    I think I will go with the classic sqlite3 approach eventually. MongoDB needs proper setup and this complexity is not justified for the app I am looking at. Thanks a lot for the input

    Android in VMWare

    Today I installed Android Nougat in VMWare and then connected the IDE to the VM via adb and it shows as a device in the "Target" branch. When I run/debug an empty FMX project the IDE deploys everything correctly and then it launches the app. Here is where the problems appears. The app loads, I can see the splash screen and then it crashes. I have tried with different SDKs but the problem is there. Anyone any ideas where to look at for the problem? I am keen on making it working. The whole process is way much faster than with a physical device.
