    How is text being saved to the database?

    Side note: Considering the DBEdit in question is the 85th of its kind, and remembering the low scalability of LiveBindings I find that highly improbable.

    Vcl to Fmx

    Seriously, at this time all alarm bells should be going off, when entering the MIDA Converter site: No Certificate, no Imprint, last forum entry was April 2019. This is no place to buy anything from right now. Try to get your bank to cancel the money transfer.

    Rounded polygon

    Ok, so the points need to be hit, but the lines in between may be rounded. That might not be covered by splines to well. 😞 Well strike that, of course the Points will be hit. It is "just" a matter of choosing the controlpoints well to get a decent shape. But therein lies the rub I guess.

    Rounded polygon

    From the Bézier curve you'll eventually have to move on to (Bézier) splines to get from a polygon to a bezigon. And not sure about VCL, but FMX has some Bézier procedures. Edith says: Naturally VCL has it, because MS has it: https://docwiki.embarcadero.com/Libraries/Sydney/en/Vcl.Graphics.TCanvas.PolyBezier
  5. Since this is code generated by the IDE, you should create a call for this right here https://quality.embarcadero.com/login.jsp. They just might be unaware that this error occurs. Edith says: Have not been able to log in right away, but there already is a call open for this: https://quality.embarcadero.com/browse/RSP-37338

    2022 Stack Overflow Developer Survey

    My guess is, next year they'll ask about sex in the workplace and need to set up possible combinations... But joking aside I participated in the survey too.

    TortoiseGit with Delphi 10 Seattle

    I found the only integration into the IDE I consider useful is the LiveBlame feature from VersionInsight.

    ANN: Skia4Delphi v3.4.0

    Well... Google has a tendency to scrap even well used projects out of the blue. And just because something is being developed by Google doesn't make it a great thing...I feel quite contrarily, but maybe I just hate ads a bit more than others.

    Survey of Delphi Versions in use??

    Well, we are the most important...

    Error deploying IOS Release App

    Someone at Embarcadero was sleeping ...and by the looks of it still is. https://quality.embarcadero.com/browse/RSP-37609 There seems to be a workaround for this issue though. Check the comments in that RSP.

    Parnassus Bookmarks for Delphi 11 Alexandria?

    This is really saddening.

    How to know how app was started

    Perhaps this SO question can help: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/36123333/which-method-is-getting-called-when-app-is-opened-by-push-notification-clicked

    DunitX run code after all tests have run

    To what end? As a form of global TearDown?
  14. You forgot the "...which in turn import a ton of more libraries all of which may or may not contain some serious security issues" part 😉

    EULA declined installing 11.1 with Network Named license

    Apart from the obvious TLS 1.3?

    did Sherlock left DP?

    I'm OK, guys, thanks for asking. Not Corona, but I've spent some time in the hospital nonetheless.

    Windows Software Development Kit - why?

    Ummmm... Yeah: https://images.app.goo.gl/2Xcd1gMuLncGModL6

    Cannot build iOS 15.1 apps

    I'm afraid in this case your Delphi version might be outdated.
  19. Well, I just copy my SD Master for redistribution...but, why not?

    Developing under Windows 11 in a VM not feasible ?

    Well cancel Windows 11 then. No need for it anyway. Only for testing. Some folks still use WinXP, being stuck on Win10 till MS comes to their senses seems not that long.

    Long term availability of Community Edition

    When you compare Embarcaderos product portfolio with Microsofts you should notice some ridiculous differences as well. You just can't make that much money on selling IDEs or developer tools alone. Please get real. Office Suites alone generate a much higher income, add an OS to that and giving away an IDE for practically nothing seems to barely make a dent in the profits.

    Application to generate all cross platform images

    In the past I used one of the many free online services for my icons (not that I needed many, only two sets). Appiconmaker, app icon generator and so forth are handy google arguments. What they lack is the start screen thing, nice addition. What none have or even consider, is the use of a different icon for those small ones, where scaled down big images just look mushy and ugly. See here for more info on that subject.

    Bookmarks dead?

    Well, first of all, none of the libraries are closed source, every licensee may/can/should take a look at the RTL or VCL code. Furthermore there are some really smart fellows looking at that code, who develop some stuff I for one can't even begin to understand. So I'm pretty sure the comments don't come out of the blue and are not simply made to disrespect. They are heartfelt cries of pain and sorrow.

    Bookmarks dead?

    Ummm. to complicated for that small stroll off of the beaten path. Let's all just try to get back on topic.
