  1. Out of 71,000 responses Delphi had 162 people say they wanted to try Delphi in this next year. Cobol had 263. What's your point? Does it really matter if we're statistically tied for last with Cobol?
  2. Delphi has the longest "Average years of professional experience" but a horrifc Median salary. In the U.S. you should be getting at least $100k as a Delphi developer with more than two years experience. $120k should be negotiated for an experienced Delphi developer (although I have recently seen people trying to get away with hiring Delphi devs at $60k in the U.S. which is why they cannot find anyone to fill the positions.)
  3. Ouch....Delphi in last place for "WANT" to learn language even after Cobol. 71,467 responses % of developers who are not developing with the language or technology but have expressed interest in developing with it

    Array within an array??

    Sometimes all it takes is to walk away from the problem for a short while.

    2022 Stack Overflow Developer Survey

    It seems to still be available, until end of day. I'd suggest trying a different browser - we need your vote. 🙂

    Recommended email tool?

    nSoftware has a quality set of tools that I used to send millions of emails... it can be expensive, but go for the Red Carpet Subscription to get the entire set.

    Delphi 11.1 - a month later

    I agree with most of your observations and 11.1 is a lot better in may ways - but for me, ctrl-click is failing most of the time and some of the automatic code completion gets in the way more. I've increased the delay and rely on it less. It seems almost what 10.4 should have been.
  10. Now includes Delphi / RAD Studio options. I encourage you to take the survey! https://www.ideasawakened.com/post/make-your-voice-heard-2022-stack-overflow-developer-survey-includes-delphi

    New Delphi job opportunity

    Often times, the currently employed Delphi developers have been on the job for a number of years and are making decent money. The managers that are attempting to hire replacement Delphi developers seem to offer way too low of starting salaries to get the experienced developers to change positions so it becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy that they can't hire Delphi developers. For example, I just saw a job ad in the U.S. for Delphi developers that is offering $60-80k to start. I doubt they will even get a single resume. If they do, it will be from overseas with little or no Delphi knowledge.

    HTML Parser alternative to MSHTML?

    About as far as I got on that tool is forking it and translating all of the Chinese strings/comments into English using Google Translate https://github.com/radprogrammer/htmlparser

    Thanks, I'll probably have time to try it again this weekend.

    HTML Parser alternative to MSHTML?

    <body><div id="1"><h2 id="h1"> text1 <ul><a href="a1">First</a><a href="a2">Second</a></ul></div><div><h2 id="h2"> text2 <ul><a href="a3:>Third</a></ul></div></body> I could not get chaining to work. On a basic example, I'd want a list of anchors for h1 and another list of anchors for h2 within a much more complex source. I tried retrieving the header by id and searching for anchors under and I didn't get any results. After a short time, I switched to another suggested solution (htmlparser) but ended up moving on to something else.
