    New annoying IDE malfunction

    This question implies that it is shown on purpose. Most likely it is not.

    Delphi 10.4 compiler going senile

    Oh, I meant to have heard that they are trying to eliminate the dependence on DotNet 🤔

    Delphi 10.4 compiler going senile

    I guess, it is more likely taken from .NET: system.threading.monitor

    When will we have an updated Delphi roadmap?

    In contrast to software a roadmap is always released when its ready.

    Cannot copy a TCard in the Structure Panel

    Basically it is working! It is just that sometimes the Structure View context menu (or the actions behind it) seems not to be properly updated. After opening the context menu from the IDE Designer, the Structure View context menu is working again. Qualifies for a QP entry I think.

    Delphi 10.4 IDE - F12 Editor/Designer toggle

    That would only work if you have the same packages installed as Carlos has.

    Error after uninstall MMX

    Are you sure you are looking at the registry part of the user starting Delphi? You can also search the registry for the value shown in the error dialog. BTW, could it be that you installed MMX for All users instead of the recommended current one?
  10. I can assure you they did! (BTW, most of the beta testing is done in Virtual Machines) Even I did and I have had no issues as described above nor do I have those now.

    Error after uninstall MMX

    Just remove the corresponding entry from the registry in HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Embarcadero\BDS\21.0\Experts.

    Check for Creators Update

    Just curious: Why you would need that check in the first place?

    Problem closing forms..

    In the moment I am able to track it down to Delphi 7, but I am pretty confident that it exists since Delphi 1.

    Book: Delphi Quick Syntax Reference

    You already can do that: {$IF Declared(TCustomAttribute)}

    Book: Delphi Quick Syntax Reference

    Perhaps I didn't explain it well enough. In case my code contains a check like: {$IF CompilerVersion < RAD_Chicago} {$IFEND} {$IF CompilerVersion < RAD_Sydney} {$IFEND} {$IF CompilerVersion < RAD_Rio} {$IFEND} that may perfectly compile with a future Delphi version named Chicago incorporating constants RAD_Chicago = 63; // no offence ... RAD_Sydney = 34; RAD_Rio = 33; ... but fails with any compiler available today. So I still need this one file with all these declarations and independent from the compiler. Where would be the benefit of Delphi providing a bunch of different versions of such a file where most of them are probably outdated and thus useless? Imagine we have each Delphi version in a separate VM, where almost all of these don't have the latest version of this file. Getting all this working will result in way more hassle than having this file maintained in one place, copying that into each project that makes use of it and keeping it up to date with each new Delphi version.
