  1. Apparently the new experimental Filter Exception expert does not work when debugging IOS or Android apps (and probably also not for Linux programs). There is a bug report on the Embarcadero Quality Portal on crashes when debugging IOS apps. Uninstalling GExperts or disabling the Filter Exception expert solves that issue. Does anybody have similar experiences with other platforms? I had a look at the code again and figured that the problem might be that it hooks/calls TNativeDebugger methods in win32debugide*.bpl. Maybe it should instead call one of the other *debugide* packages: gdbdebugide (Linux)? ios32debugide ios64debugide But on the other hand I don't really care because I don't do any development for anything but Win32 (and possibly Win64 in the future). So I am thinking about disabling the expert when a project for non windows platforms is active instead. It should definitely not crash the IDE.

    On IDE cannot get TABS

    I think this is what you are looking for: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/7649812/get-set-sub-properties-ussing-rtti

    Have a look at the code in "IDE PlugIn\Colorizer.Hooks.IDE.pas", "IDE PlugIn\Colorizer.Hooks.pas" and "IDE PlugIn\Colorizer.Wrappers.pas". These seem to be the places where the plugin hooks into the TGradientTabSet code of the IDE. I just grepped for "TGradientTabSet", I didn't try to understand any of the code, so don't ask me how it works, I don't know.

    Yeah, that's odd. I wonder where this declaration comes from. There are other classes there as well, that are naked declarations. Maybe looking at the project as a whole would give some clues. For a start I would remove all property and method declarations, typecast to this type and try to access the fields to see if that results in plausible values. If they do, it's possible to call the virtual methods through the VMT. But that's definitely out of my league.
  5. That one only applies to the map file. Of course, the same code should probably also work for the search path. It's just not called.

    "Self-updating" terminal services DLL

    It should be possible to rename a DLL while it is being used and replace it with a new one. I do this all the time in the pre build script of GExperts. This of course requires the rights move the file in the first place.
  7. Thanks, I was just about to ask you to do that. I'm sure there are other places where support for environment variables would be convenient. I'll have a look when I find the time.

    TabControl is a TGradientTabSet, not a TTabControl and it does not descend from TTabControl either (Look at the Hierarchy tab in the IDE explorer), so typecasting it to TTabControl won't work. It doesn't have a Tabs property either, so even RTTI won't help you there. I found a TGradientTabSet on https://github.com/RRUZ/Delphi-IDE-Colorizer/blob/master/IDE PlugIn/Galileo/TGradientTabSet.pas. Not sure this is the one used in the IDE, but it's worth a try since this seems to be an IDE plugin.,
  9. I'm encountering this problem regularly when some component isn't installed in the IDE or is installed but in a different (usually older) version. It would be nice to simply open that dfm as text and be able to make rudimentary changes to it. Most of the time it is enough to remove or change some properties from the dfm to make it load normally. The IDE always offers to delete a property or control, but I don't trust it (and I have reasons for that). Currently I open the dfm in a text editor but that's rather inconvenient.

    Since the Visible property is introduced very early in the controls hierarchy, it's more likely to work than the Tabs property. Most likely your "x" is not a TTabControl but something else. Have you checked its ClassName?

    GExperts is causing a problem when debugging

    No, I can't. I don't have any apple hardware to run any tests. See my comment to the ticket:

    The link I posted goes directly to the page that gives you the description and in turn links to the source code. There is no ready built bpl for it. (And it's not part of GExperts.)

    Did you try one of the Delphi IDE Explorers? E.g. mine. It might get you better information than Winspector. Multline tabs for the editor window are not possible with Delphi > 7. I don't know about the "new" old style component palette, I never used it.

    Suggestion for Debug helper Expert

    I understood that you wanted to have an additional window that is shown when the CPU window is visible. Another approach would be to extend the CPU window itself, similar to what GExperts does to the Search Path edit window. It could add a panel to the right of the window which contains additional controls that are filled by GExperts.
