    Delphi 10.4.2 first impressions

    Worked flawlessly over here. AFAIK GetIt packages are not re-installed, but I don't use those anyway. I always install packages directly and these are all present after the update.
  2. If it is the only change in the project files, it would at least work for packages 10.4 and up - at least until any new setting throws a spanner into the gear.

    how to keep unit files opened in project??

    Under Tools - Options - IDE - Saving and Desktop there is a setting Save project desktop when closing.
  4. It was introduced in 10.4 Sydney - Release 1
  5. Meanwhile a bit dusty, but most of it is still valid and overlaps your suggestions nicely: Delphi Library Guidelines
  6. The problem with those ExplicitXXX values is that they are synched with their current XXX counterparts on several occasions. These are WM_SIZE, WM_MOVE and SetBounds. You cannot assume that these values contain the original DFM content, even if that was the case after loading the form.
  7. What about creating a new form instance and adjust the components and properties in question from that?

    class operator, AND/OR/XOR question

    From the Docwiki: Oops: too late
  9. That is a know deficiency: MMX doesn't work properly in the project code, only in units.
  10. Well, the Module Search is actually a member of the top pane and it is selected when you enter the Search box. It is similar to selecting one of the uses clause entries or a Live Metrics entry. Each selection switches the content of the bottom pane. I understand that you prefer a different behavior, but others (probably long time MMX users) prefer or may even rely on the current one. I'm sorry, but it is very unlikely that this will be changed.
  11. Well, at least that is what the tooltip for Member Search bar says:

    convert Procedure to a Unit??

    Do you mean a Class? Because a Unit cannot be created when required.

    Inherited on Properties and co.

    FData is private, but the helper sets inherited Data, which is public.

    Inherited on Properties and co.

    At least since Delphi 7 (cannot check versions below in the moment). Just have a look at DB.pas (out of many others): function TFieldDefs.GetFieldDef(Index: Integer): TFieldDef; begin Result := TFieldDef(inherited Items[Index]); end; or the ancient Contnrs.pas: function TObjectList.GetItem(Index: Integer): TObject; begin Result := inherited Items[Index]; end;
