    FastReport 5 vs 6: PDF export

    Considering your callstack @Vandrovnik is probably right. Another thing to check out is the (IMHO much better RichText export). In version 5 RTF objects produced bitmaps. In version 6 it produces properly formatted text in the PDF (searchable, extractable). That *could* also make things slower.

    Possible custom Format types?

    I dunno, but i seem to remember an escape character in the mix. Cannot find it now on the phone. I.e. how would you print a "%".

    Possible custom Format types?

    IMHO is the "Key". This line specifies ALL possible combinations. You can expect. Obviously the formatter ALWAYS starts with % and ends with a "type" char. You should be able to skip testing for a space ater the type char.

    So the cases where all formaters are a % and just one char are specific.

  6. I seldom see problems in end-user VCL apps. Regarding TService based server-side, such things happens when a library is not flexible enough. FastReport's "in-memo" formatting for example, sometimes, changing the global FormatSettings variable can help.

    Your RAD Studio 10.4 Sydney issues

    Very used to hitting Alt+S then ArrowDown twice and Enter to bring up "Find in files...". In Sydney the menu handling sometimes lag in a strange way so that when the dialog is brought up, the caret in the actual editor has moved down one row (apparently i pressed ArroDown three times). When this happens the word that was selected in order to have it immediately show up as the search text is no longer selected. Utterly annoying.

    Your RAD Studio 10.4 Sydney issues

    I have an issue with the title of this thread. Each time someone comments i get an notification that "NN commented on Your RAD Studio 10.4 issues". Wooo, i'm getting really popular 🙂 ... not.

    how to get a pseudo-design mode at run-time

    @uligerhardt, that looks like an attachment from this forum. Could you supply a link to the original discussion as well? TIA!

    MSSQL Update Freezes

    Some two, tree times a year i get an "Logical transaction already started" or some such from my DAC (not FireDAC). IMHO if you do not start and end transaction properly you should get an exception from the DAC, so i would file a QC for FireDAC.
  12. Yeah. Conversation with professionals usually render such. I have some thing still "up" (accessible) but it's not something i ever tell any real-world (prospective)client to look at. I'll have a good thorough read of the code above, and the link. But - as said - i am not in the need anymore. But i think that your/similar solutions somewhat needs to advertised and available to the community. The TDataSet idiom has sprouted loads of good code and libs. New arrivals may very much refrain from learning the idioms MVVP/MVP/MPM/Whatever. Just because some of the specific results does not look as "fluent/flowing" as alternatives.
  13. @aehimself, cool! IMHO you should do a small write-up using TDataSet compatible code. I once did a rather extensive test project in that direction, but i think my ambitions was too high. It worked but i also invested time writing a middle-tier,now i have a middle tier so most of these kind of problems are gone.

    Your RAD Studio 10.4 Sydney issues

    Sydney is to me like the incredible mr. Ripley in that first appearances was very good. Very. After some actual real-world use, it's starting to act up and i, unfortunately, feel at home again in that i recognize the problems. This one is new to me though: Before... what? Debugging. This happened while tracing along Win32 Debug. I have no idea how to reproduce or report this. Edit: Ripley?
  15. For most DB and their DACs / client libs, you must use one "Connection" per thread. So the loading thread needs to get the connection parameters from the main thread and open a connection. Opening new connections is expensive resource-wise and that is where the connection pools come in. I do not use FireDAC myselfe as i cannot afford the sources, it is quite a library, and maybe they have catered for this in some way, but i would not know that. HTH, /Dany
