  1. Even though we are a Delphi forum, we have a considerable number of users of the C++Builder among us. Without shifting the basic focus of this forum, we are aware of the long and close connection between Delphi and C++Builder and therefore want to give its users space for their questions. https://en.delphipraxis.net/forum/41-general-help/

    Welcome, users of C++Builder

    You can. We will bring more options that will allow you to customize the forum to your needs. This should allow you to focus on the content you consider important to you. Nonetheless - the main purpose of this topic was to say "Hello" to some users.

    Welcome, users of C++Builder

    ... unregister from this community. A bit drastic, but there is not other solution yet.

    FireDAC Add On discountinued? (Good by Embarcadero?)

    Well ... FireDAC will no longer be a separate product - but it is still under active development and will stay as part of the Enterprise (and above) editions of Delphi.

    Subforum for Python4Delphi

    Sure - I can do this later today.
  6. Embarcadero released a C++Builder specific patch for 10.4.1: C++Builder 10.4.1 Event Handler and RTTI Patch https://blogs.embarcadero.com/cbuilder-10-4-1-event-handler-and-rtti-patch/ It should only impact you if you are building components with C++Builder.

    [Souce code]

    Please describe your projects a little. This will help others to decide to join or not.
  8. Here is an example: https://www.embarcadero.com/images/dm/technical-papers/extending-the-delphi-ide.pdf Search for "SaveStateNecessary" to find the relevant chapter.
  9. I can look for an example later today. As fas as I know you have to implement a specific interface to be part of a fixed layout that can be saved and restored.
  10. Hi, we're actually all experts here (more or less...). Would you please be so kind to find a more meaningful subject for your question?

    Delphi 10.4.1

    Just start the 10.4.1-setup. It will offer you to uninstall the old version while keeping your settings. This is (usually) the recommended way of updating.

    10.4.1 issues

    Please be more specific about errors and try to create a separate topic for each error you want to discuss. But to make it short: I am sure there will soon be an update for the bookmarks-addon. And for the speedbutton there is already an entry in the quality-portal (RSP-30755). I would not be surprised if other users find a quick solution for this until it is fixed by EMBT.

    CPP or C++ Category

    Well, my personal experience is that languages do not mix very well in a community called "Delphi-PRAXiS". We do have an C#-Section in the German counterpart of this forum. Well ... last post is from end of January (luckily January of this year). I understand that C++ is part of RADStudio and a little closer to Delphi than Typescript or other languages but the goal was to be (at least reasonable) good in one thing and this is being a Delphi-related community. On the other hand - if there is a significant demand from the members of this community to talk about C++, we should smash our ideas together to find a pleasant solution. If you think that we should think into that direction, please let uns now here in this thread.

    10.4.1 Released today

    Please be so kind and add a couple of words about a link to QP. Is that a fix that went in and makes you the happiest person on earth, is that a fix that did not went in or is that a new bug-report for 10.4.1 ?

    Delphi 10.4.1 is here

    Hi, we already have a topic for this. To keep things in one place, I'd like to close this thread and would like to redirect you to the other one:

    10.4.1 Released today

    Just for completeness: Customers on Update Subscription can download and install RAD Studio 10.4.1 today from https://my.embarcadero.com Release Notes: http://docwiki.embarcadero.com/RADStudio/Sydney/en/10.4_Sydney_-_Release_1 List of fixed Bugs: http://docwiki.embarcadero.com/RADStudio/Sydney/en/New_features_and_customer_reported_issues_fixed_in_RAD_Studio_10.4.1 As a side-note: If you use the offline installer (ISO-image), RAD Studio will not be able to access the GetIt Package Manager until you manually switch to "online mode". To do this, you have to use the GetItCmd.exe tool: GetItCmd.exe -c=useonline

    Lightweight RTSP-player

    Hi everyone (or as we say in northern germany: "MOIN"), I am looking for a lightweight solution to play RTSP-streams in Windows 32/64. Right now I am using libvlc.dll for this and it works pretty well. But there is this extrernal dependency... I have tried DSpack, but I think as long as my regular Windows Media Player is not able to play RTPS, DSpack will fail also (what it does so far). Are there any recommendations beyond VLC? best regards, Dany

    System.GetMemory returning NIL

    ... well - if this is really what you want, you should rethink your discussion-style. For me your last post is quite offensive. It is not the first time we (have to) talk about this.
  19. Sometimes discussions suffer from the fact that participants always want to have the last word. Several plausible causes of problems have been addressed.

    Lightweight RTSP-player

    Thanks. The precompiled demos only include a list of predefined cams. I will check the demos of the components.

    Load form icon while using styles

    Mahdi - again: calm down now. This is not the first time I have to tell you to calm down. it is pretty simple: if you feel unable to have a focused discussion on a topic, just don’t do it. You must stop personal attacks against other members. we come from all over the world, many of us are not native English speakers. So, well, yes, we might understand the wording of another member in different ways. Please keep this in mind. But there is a consensus that some(!) of your posts tend to be personal against other members. So, please step down a little. Soon.

    IDE Fixpack Sydney

    A free license was offered multiple times and is clearly not the limiting aspect here.

    Trying to DL image yields a web page instead

    Looks like your ticket-system requires credentials. Often they're stored in a cookie or a session-cookie, this is why downloading the image using your browser usually works. You will need some kind of authentication for your IdHTTP-request. You could look into the docs of your ticket-system to get information about authentication, or you could use a http-proxy like Fiddler to inspect what your browser is actually sending while fetching the image. This might also work using the usual developer-tools inside your browser. In the end you'll have to look at the request-header. I am pretty sure that there will be some kind of authentication.

    RTTI in dpr / console app dpr

    Mahdi - calm down. Now. This will clearly not be the next thread where you can celebrate in public your discrepancies with David. His example is absolutely valid to demonstrate that RTTI is actually working in plan .dpr files.

    Your RAD Studio 10.4 Sydney issues

    So, please come back to the technical aspects of (your) 10.4 issues. This is not the right topic for a discussion about the general quality-management of EMBT.
