    Need some enlightenment

    Hi, next time please chose a more specific subject for your question. 😉

    Whatsapp solution for Delphi

    This is close to spammers paradise and it seems that it does not comply with the license-terms of whatsapp. see: https://developers.facebook.com/docs/whatsapp/faq Given the unclear circumstances, I removed the links and locked the post.

    Do bug fix patches really require active subscription?

    In short: We try to respect the intentions of Embarcadero. And their intentions are quite clear - they want the users to use either GetIt or their download-portal located at my.embarcadero.com. But some patches for very ancient versions of Delphi (version 6 for example) are floating around the internet. And although their copyright is still clearly defined - it is not "public domain" - Embarcadero considered it the lesser of two evils if customers were helped with a direct link.

    About the discussion of deep-links: Indeed they are not welcome. Embarcadero has its download-portals and can make the files available there. The fact that the files can be downloaded without further protection does not mean that we will publish these links here as long as there are official sources for them.

    emailx45....Just curious

    Account was deleted on request. But in general we do not discuss things like this in public. I will close this topic now.

    Hi, just click the "follow"-box in the upper right. I admit, that this one is not easy to be recognised as a button, but it has some power...
  7. I have removed some offtopic-rants. Please stay focused on topic.

    TTreeNode leak when VCL styles are active

    I agree with @pyscripter, please come back to the topic.
  9. Good catch - but the is a reduced code-sample. Same situation still applies when comparing values from an array with values that are generated at runtime.
  10. The original cry for help reached me from a developer using 10.3.x - so this is not limited to 10.4.2.
  11. Not sure if we have a confused debugger, but for sure we do have a confused developer. Take the following code: procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject); var i ,j : integer; begin for i:= 0 to 1 do for j:= 1 to 2 do if i+j > 1000 then ShowMessage( 'Möp!' ); end; Just run the code and see that no message appears on the screen. Now set a breakpoint on the line with the "ShowMessage"-statement. Run the code again the see that the breakpoint will be triggered and the programs stops. Now place a "begin" and an "end" around the "ShowMessage"-statement - run the code again, the breakpoint will not be triggered anymore. for i:= 0 to 1 do for j:= 1 to 2 do if i+j > 1000 then begin ShowMessage( 'Möp!' ); // < breakpoint still here end; What is going on here? For me it looks like it has something to do with the loops, as the following breakpoint is (as expected) also not triggered: j := Random(10); if j > 1000 then ShowMessage( 'Meep' ); // <-- set breakpoint here (will not be triggered)

    I will be less active for a few weeks

    I am sorry to hear this. I also wish you a fast and full recovery.

    Delphi 10.4.2 first impressions

    We now have six pages of first impressions. This topic has become, as so often with a release, a melting pot of all possible aspects. But it doesn't get any better or clearer and doesn't gain any added value for someone who wants to inform himself about the new release from this page six on (probably already before). Even if it may be a "first impression" for you individually, please create a new topic for your specific question. I will leave this topic open for now so that you can quickly finish acute sub-topics.

    Delphi 10.4.2 first impressions

    If you want to discuss VirtualBox in detail, please use a separate topic for that. This part of the discussion seems no longer be related to Delphi 10.4.2.

    Delphi 10.4.2 first impressions

    Read the installation notes. The IDE itself has that requirement.
