    Common code base for VCL and FMX control code

    Thanks to all who replied. I was looking into the details, the code base side-by-side with the suggestions. I/we were aware of this and the unit scoping, and have gone this way with some components before, but it had started out being separate units so continued to go that way. And then again, I paused to see if there was a better way to go 🙂 We've gone with the separate packages, unit scoping, and same unit approach. Will need to do some package reorganization and some code reorganisation, but it will definitely make things cleaner. So, might as well do it! We will have dialogs for the components and that will be very platform specific and linking to the visual classes/units of the frameworks, but that can be separated out in one of the suggested ways. Thanks.
  3. Hi, I’m checking to see if there are better ways to have a common codebase for both VCL and FMX components. Here’s some information on the scenario and the current implementation: We are working on having a common code base for the Document Printer component in Document Studio. Only about 10-15 lines of code are platform (OS) and framework (VCL/FMX) specific. The VCL component needs to link to/use VCL units - Printer, Graphics, etc., and likewise the FMX version needs to link to/use FMX units - Printer, Graphics… Since the controls link to different frameworks and their respective units and since they need to be installed on the component palette, the unit that contains the control needs to be different for each framework (VCL, FMX). And It’s organised in the following way currently: Unit vclgtDocumentPrinter {$Define gtVCL} {$Include gtDocumentPrinter.inc} // this file has all the code … Unit FMX.gtDocumentPrinter {$Define gtFMX} {$Include gtDocumentPrinter.inc} // this file has all the code … There’s one apparent issue with this way: code completion doesn’t work in the inc file. Are there better ways of having a common code base for controls in the scenario explained above? Thank you, -- Girish PatilGnosticewww.gnostice.com
