    MMX Beta 14.1 available

    One of the reasons I never really got into MMX despite everyone telling me that it is a must have was its overloaded UI with all the toolbars and stuff after you installed it. Yes, you can turn off most of it but it would really pleasant if there was a simple option to switch between something like a "light" and "full" version easily (or even more different presets) - possiibly selectable during setup.

    Limit to reactions

    Recently I'm in desperate need of the facepalm reaction...

    And these topics even keep popping up in terms of marking them bold on the overview when only comments by ignored people were written - very annoying. While G+ was certainly not perfect the way notifications worked was fine except the impossibility to get notified on topics without leaving some dummy comment.

    No, I want an opt-in, not an opt-out.
  5. Can you tell which classes it considers? For example I have the interface unit in a package and many different DLL projects that implement this interface but not all of them or even none is being opened in the IDE. Is there the possibility to tell the plugin to consider certain directories with sources in them?

    What does "G" in GExperts mean?

    That reminds me of googling for PosEx without adding Delphi to put it into context...

    I would really appreciate the possibility to not having already read posts that I did subscribe or comment on to pop up again whenever there is a new comment. I know this is how forum software usually works however it gets very distracting if content that I decided is uninteresting to me keeps popping up again.

    Delphi compiler need to be opensourced

    If this thread is only a small foreshadowing of how the community (or rather individuals) would react and respond to an open source project and how things are getting discussed I have to say that I would not want to be part of it. Yes, everyone is permitted to his own opinions but the how is important - and I can see in other communities like for example the C# compiler or .Net Core projects that developers don't want to deal with bs and toxic waste but communicate in a civilized manner. ... and that coming from me known as someone who can voice his opinions in a strong way garnished with cursing often enough ...

    Nooo! You can't stop this before it complies to godwin's law 😉

    Wow, first time using repeat ... until

    I was tempted yesterday to use it until I figured out how to get the same result (also codegen wise with as little jumps as possible) using loops in a kinda readable way. 😉
  12. Yes, you can do - however using DI with interfaces has a unique benefit in Delphi - you don't need to care for who is responsible for cleaning up. Leaving aside circular references and assuming a topdown object graph you can simply pass down dependencies even to more than one consumer and stuff gets cleaned up properly in the end. Without that you need to track who is the one owning a dependency and responsible for destroying it - possible but more complicated. In GC languages however having only one implementation for an interface (which you might want to do in Delphi because of the aforementioned reason) is considered a code smell by some - see https://blog.ploeh.dk/2010/12/02/Interfacesarenotabstractions/

    Initialize local variables at declaration

    Initialize local variables at declaration

    IDE tooling does not work properly and some of it completely stops, Also inline variables of a managed type are not always properly initialized. As much as I like this feature syntax wise - I would stay away from it for now 😞

    Initialize local variables at declaration

    This was implemented 10.3 via inline variables. It however is not possible to declare the variable in the old way plus initialize it - you have to declare it inline: procedure DoSomething; begin var MyVar: Integer = 23; // end; You can even omit the type there and it will automatically be Integer: procedure DoSomething; begin var MyVar = 23; // end; See http://blog.marcocantu.com/blog/2018-october-inline-variables-delphi.html
