    Feature: ParentFont? Yes, but...

    I would like to discuss a feature here before creating a QP entry for that (which seems not to be possible in the moment anyway). There is often the case where I want some controls to be emphasized somehow by adjusting the font style or font color. This will automatically set ParentFont to False . As a drawback the control will no longer act on any changes to the parent font - obviously. In times of VCL styles and the ability for the user to change style and font, this can lead to a bit of extra work to get things looking pretty again. What would you think of a feature like: Yes, I want to use the ParentFont, but don't touch my font style and/or font color settings. I have something in mind like the StyleElements property, where you can select which font properties are to be inherited from the parent and which are not. What do you think?

    I included everything available just to not miss something. I agree that the list can be reduced. After all, it is only a suggestion - not the implementation. It might be worth to add your comment to QP, so it will find its way to the person in charge.

    Bug when editing a class property?

    I can confirm that even for 15.0.12 - a fix is in the pipeline. As a workaround add these files to the Excluded list: System IdGlobal IdThreadSafe

    Of course there are workarounds and you can always do such settings in the code. I know there are suggestions to get rid of the DFM in general and do all in the code. On the other hand there are plenty of people that prefer setting such things in the Object Inspector.

    Feature: ParentFont? Yes, but...

    Getting rid of something can be a bit tricky when you need to maintain your code also with older versions. The basic idea is to introduce that new property with an empty default value matching the current behavior. This will keep the DFM clean and ParentFont functioning as before. These are the parts for a possible implementation: type TFontElement = (pfeCharset, pfeColor, pfeHeight, pfeName, pfeOrientation, pfePitch, pfeSize, pfeStyle, pfeQuality); TFontElements = set of TFontElement; The new property ParentFontElements would be initialized with an empty set, which would be omitted when writing the DFM. property ParentFontElements: TParentFontElements read FParentFontElements write SetParentFontElements default []; The implementation would not affect any rendering at all. It can be implemented completely inside TControl.CMParentFontChanged without any impact to any other place. procedure TControl.CMParentFontChanged(var Message: TCMParentFontChanged); begin if FParentFont then begin if Message.WParam <> 0 then SetFont(Message.Font) else SetFont(FParent.FFont); FParentFont := True; end else if FParent <> nil then begin { TODO : order might be relevant } if pfeCharset in ParentFontElements then Font.Charset := FParent.Font.Charset; if pfeColor in ParentFontElements then Font.Color := FParent.Font.Color; if pfeHeight in ParentFontElements then Font.Height := FParent.Font.Height; if pfeName in ParentFontElements then Font.Name := FParent.Font.Name; if pfeOrientation in ParentFontElements then Font.Orientation := FParent.Font.Orientation; if pfePitch in ParentFontElements then Font.Pitch := FParent.Font.Pitch; if pfeSize in ParentFontElements then Font.Size := FParent.Font.Size; if pfeStyle in ParentFontElements then Font.Style := FParent.Font.Style; if pfeQuality in ParentFontElements then Font.Quality := FParent.Font.Quality; end; end; The ParentFontElements are only used when ParentFont is False, which is automatically set when changing some Font properties. Thus setting ParentFontElements must internally set ParentFont to False and trigger CM_PARENTFONTCHANGED: procedure TControl.SetParentFontElements(const Value: TParentFontElements); begin if FParentFontElements <> Value then begin FParentFontElements := Value; FParentFont := False; if (FParent <> nil) and not (csReading in ComponentState) then Perform(CM_PARENTFONTCHANGED, 0, 0); end; end; Apart from some real world testing and adjusting this is probably all that is needed for an implementation.

    F.i. SnagIt uses Shift-F9 for Video Capture per default.

    Test your product with UTF-8 beta setting

    For new units you can enforce that with this registry setting (example for Delphi 10.3):

    language updates in 10.4?

    Me too, but just because I still have to maintain a couple of projects with older Delphi versions. While it is possible to handle that with conditional defines, that means double work for inline variables.

    Looking for long term partners/investors

    According to the 80/20 rule, whereas 80% of the work can be finished in 20% of the time, you actually have spent 15% of the time needed to get 100% of the work done

    language updates in 10.4?

    I have to confess that regarding the PPL I am the same idiot as you. On the other hand, it is like with all tools: You have to know how to use them and especially know where you have to be careful. As much as I love OTL I am often not in the position to make the decision for it.

    Not precisely, but the Set active platform button in the Projects Window hits it pretty close:

    TDataset with non-contiguos fetch-on-demand

    AFAIK, TFDTable does something like that when used in Live Data Window Mode, but the implementation seems to be pretty complicated.
  16. After a very, very long beta phase I finally released MMX Code Explorer V15. Thanks to all beta testers for their help and patience. A really big thank you goes to all who donated for the new MMX icons.

    MMX Code Explorer V15 released

    Seems I messed up Caption and Title somewhere. Will be fixed in the next release.

    MMX Code Explorer V15 released

    @timfrost You can workaround that by renaming the registry key HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Raabe Software\MMX\14.0 to something like 14.0_hide. After installing V15 you can rename it back. You may have to adjust your V15 settings manually then. I will try to setup a similar scenario to track down that problem.

    MMX for Delphi 10.3 Rio

    There is an unofficial download available for MMX Code Explorer with Delphi 10.3 Rio support. Unofficial because it didn't have had much testing yet due to some incompatibilities found during the beta phase. One of this results in the loss of the MMX editor context menu entry. Another big change ist that MMX version 14.x only supports Delphi 10 Seattle and higher. For that, version 13 will still be available for download and installations for older Delphi versions should keep working. I had to make this cut to avoid wasting too much time just to make it work and test it on those older versions. Nevertheless there are some features and bug fixes: Unit Dependency Analyzer is now dockable (so you can see immediately when you introduce cyclic dependencies) New settings page Project Options (currently contains only the setting for Uses Clause Sorting). These settings are stored per project in a separate section of the dproj file. Uses Clause Sorting accepts lists like (ToolsApi,DesignIntf) as one group. This only affects grouping, so the order inside this list is not relevant. Uses Clause Sorting accepts wildcards like Rz* (for Raize Components) or Id* (for Indy) to better handle non-dotted unit names New sorting options "group class members" - keeps the class methods together fix: Wrong result when renaming parameter during Extract Method fix: Add Local Variable now also works with For-In clause fix: Hard coded string scan check for min length works correct now fix: Paste Interface in empty class just works now fix: Consolidated behavior of selected file in Open/Use Unit dialog fix: Creational Wizard follows static/non-static when suggesting destructors Some work has been done for supporting themes, but that is still a long road to go. Please report any bugs and problems found either here or via support@mmx-delphi.de.

    Seems the CS logging switch was a coincidence. I finally found the actual bug.

    No problem. I like those easy to fix bugs

    Actually I don't need new broken stuff at all - regardless of existing bugs being fixed or not.

    Try again with CodeSite Logging switched off.

    MMX for Delphi 10.3 Rio

    @Jacek Laskowski Finally I was able to write a proper test case that reliably produces an infinite loop with the old code. Although I am still unsure what steps have to be done to reach that, I resist to investigate this any longer - as long as the current code passes this test flawlessly.

    @Jacek Laskowski and @ULIK Can you please try the new version 15.0.10.2369?
