  1. Whole heartedly agree with you Thomas but if your working with VCL Styles aligned panels work better as I've found anchors do not always compensate for border width changes (even in the IDE, and yes its been reported).

    Creating a "pull request" for jvcl

    You need to commit the change to the local repository and then "pull" the request.

    Creating a "pull request" for jvcl

    Looks like you cannot do it from the command line with the out of the box stuff.

    Creating a "pull request" for jvcl

    Thomas, You shouldn't need to create a repository, just clone the JVCL to your machine. If you use the GitHub Desktop application, it allows you to submit your changes as a Pull request. Not sure how this is achieved from the command-line but I'll have a look.

    Code completion stopped working on my project

    Do you use ant of the new in-line vars / const in your code as this is known to stop the IDE tooling working?
  6. There are 2 things you need to do: 1) If you want to use the components from the tool palette then you will need to install the appropriate package for your IDE however this will not necessarily allow you application to compile the code; 2) You either need to add the Source\ directory to the IDEs library path or to your projects Search path. Your application should then compile.
  7. I'm not sure I understand the question. If you need backwards compatibility to before XE3 then you will need to use VTV 5.3 (say for instance you building an Open Tools API project to be backward compatable to D2010). If you using it in an application with a modern version of the IDE (10.x) then you could use VTV 7.0 or above. I'm using 7.0 in one of may application and not the latest version as I've had issue with the live repository introducing breaking changes that affected basic functionality so I test the releases before committing and using them.
  8. There are changes between VT 5.3 which you would probably be using for D2010 and VTV 7.0+ (6.x and above stopped being backwardly compatible to versions of the IDE before (I think) XE3.). You can still use VTV 5.3 on 10.3.1 but you would get fixes and enhancements if you used VTV 7.0+ (latest I think is 7.1).

    Hands-On Design Patterns with Delphi

    Mine came through the door last Thursday (UK). I'm only on Chapter 2 but have already learnt something new :-).

    Access violation maybe from GExperts

    I disabled FixInsight (the latest version) the other day as I was getting IDE crashes on closedown. I raised the issue with TMS but have not heard anything. I’m glad someone else has managed to replicate it as I sometimes wonder whether its my old machine.

    Rio Dark Theme and the structure panel

    Its intermittent and I've seen it in 10.3 (Beta and Production) and I assume you're seeing it in 10.3.1? Therefore they need to investigate else it will never be fixed.

    Rio Dark Theme and the structure panel

    This is similar to this QP I raised: https://quality.embarcadero.com/browse/RSP-22221 I don't use the structure pane so I don't know whether that was affected at the time.

    OTA Ide Shutdown

    Main form is call AppBuilder if I remember correctly and is available from the Forms collection in the Screen object. Have a look at my Delphi IDE Explorer plug-in (https://github.com/DGH2112/Delphi-IDE-Explorer).
