    GExperts and Delphi 10.3.2

    Everybody and his brother – ahem – sister is blogging about the latest Update for Delphi 10.3 which has been announced two days ago. As always, Embarcadero’s servers are overloaded and have been down for hours. I have now started downloading the ISO and my browser is telling me it should be finished in 90 minutes. I’m not convinced yet… The first feedback has been that GExperts seems to work with the new version but there is an access violation when exiting the IDE. I’ll give it a try once the download has finished and if I can actually install the new version. Everybody else of course is welcome to get the GExperts sources and compile their own DLL to test. I’m interested in feedback about self compiled DLLs more than about the last release. If somebody can track down the AV and maybe even propose a fix that would be great. (that's actually the full blog post from here: https://blog.dummzeuch.de/2019/07/20/gexperts-and-delphi-10-3-2/ )

    GExperts Crashes RAD Studio 10.3.2 on Shutdown

    I haven't yet found the time to download and install the Rio update. Maybe this weekend. Is this the released DLL from the installer or did you compile it yourself using Delphi 10.3.2 ?

    Isn't database problems the normal state there? 😉
  4. I think I asked that before: Is there a keyboard shortcut for activating the code editor? If I remember correctly the answers were: No, but you can use F12 to toggle between form designer and code editor, and F11 for a three way toggle between object inspector, form designer and code editor. Do I remember correctly? If yes, I have some good news for those who have missed this functionality (which definitely includes myself): I have just added a simple expert to GExperts that does nothing else but activate and focus the code editor. But that raises a question: What should the default keyboard shortcut be for this expert? So I resurrected Nicholas Ring's Delphi Shortcut Finder, in order to find out what is still available. But unfortunately this tool, useful as it is, basically is only a list of known shortcuts with a filter function, so it might miss shortcuts from possibly widely used tools which I simply don't know. I first thought about some F11 combination but it turned out that they are already taken, the same goes for F12. Then there is Shift+F3, but I think this is used for "Find Previous" in some tools. The obvious combinations with the E and C key are also already taken. Shift+F6 seemed to be free for now. (F6 calls IDE Insight and Ctrl+F6 switches between C++ source and header files.), so I assigned it as the default for the new expert. Or Is there a widely used plugin that uses Shift+F6?

    Can GExperts format multiline method definition to single line?

    No, GExperts can't (because nobody answered that question yet).

    How do you organize units, forms?

    No, it only sorts lines alphabetically in ascending or descending order. Optionally it ignores prefixes like "function" or "procedure". It does not work if the declaration spans multiple lines.
  7. After I just accidentally logged off when I just wanted to mark all messages as read, I have a suggestion: Can we get a confirmation dialog when logging off? When on mobile these two options very near to each other.

    How do you organize units, forms?

    One of the first things I do is delete those annoying comments the IDE inserts: Private/Protected etc. declarations. Apart from that I sometimes use the GExperts sort expert to sort the methods inside a section alphabetically. But normally I just let the IDE put them in whatever order it uses.

    GExperts SourceExport problem

    My version of Thunderbird (52.9.1) doesn't insert the prefix for a HTML fragment, but it shows the code as HTML code (the same goes for RTF fragment) No formatted text at all. I'll update and check the latest version too

    GExperts SourceExport problem

    Copying as "Formatted text/RTF/HTML" does not create an html fragment but a document complete with CSS. Have you tried that? Of course it depends which of the three formats the receiving application inserts. OK, it won't work either. Thunderbird in that case simply inserts plain text. 😞

    GExperts SourceExport problem

    Ouch, I fixed the version number but not the name.

    GExperts SourceExport problem

    This is something defined by Microsoft: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/win32/dataxchg/html-clipboard-format When I paste such a fragment into Notepad++ (or the standard Notepad) I don't get these prefixes. So I guess it's Thunderbird which does not know how to handle it.

    GExperts SourceExport problem

    This seems to be missing the CSS for the various span elements. It's possible that this was meant to copy multiple code fragments into the same document which already has got the CSS definitions. But I don't really know, I have never used or looked at this functionality before.

    GExperts SourceExport problem

    I have just updated SynEdit to the latest version from GitHub. Since both, RTF and HTML-Snippets are generated using the functionality in SynEdit, this may solve the problem. But as I said: I haven't got any Winword license to test this. Could you please compile a new dll with the current sources and check?
  15. There is the structure view which displays all classes, fields, methods etc., global types, variables and constants as well as the uses clause (of the interface section only WTF?)
