    Delphi 12 is available

    Using third-party products like https://www.devexpress.com/products/vcl/, it is possible to build very sophisticated VCL applications.
  2. The old F6 disease in Delphi 12 has still not been cured: In some cases, F6-IDE-Insight no longer works - components from the component palette are no longer displayed in the F6 search box in design mode. The following rain dance helps in any case in Delphi 12, too: https://en.delphipraxis.net/topic/2183-f6-search-feature-does-not-work-anymore/?do=findComment&comment=50990

    F6 Search feature does not work anymore?

    Thanks again - this old F6 disease is still present in Delphi 12!

    Delphi 12: Install Packages inconsistency?

    The 'Install Packages' window is not directly connected with "your next action." The list in that window should display the CURRENT state of the available packages (which should return to its DEFAULT state when the project is closed). This is LOGICAL and consistent as this list also reflects the available packages when a project is opened.

    Delphi 12: Install Packages inconsistency?

    I think I've found the bug: When executing File -> Close ALL, the Package configuration remains the same as the last loaded project. Only when creating a new project does it return to the default Package configuration. This is a real inconsistency!

    Delphi 12: Install Packages inconsistency?

    Thanks for the information - I've never noticed the difference. But when I uncheck a package in the second version of the window (when a project is loaded) and then close the project (Close All), it remains unchecked even in the first version (when no project is loaded). Shouldn't the Project Options of a specific project not influence the general configuration of installed packages?
  7. When NO PROJECT is loaded in the Delphi 12 IDE, the menu item Component -> Install Packages opens this window: But when any project is loaded in the Delphi 12 IDE, the menu item Component -> Install Packages opens another window: Why are there different windows for the Install Packages menu item? Also, when searching from the SearchBox in the second version of the window (when a project is loaded in the IDE), the Project Options are searched (and not the Install Packages items): Can anybody confirm this?

    Many handicaps are corrected by plugins such as GExperts and/or CnWizards. Without these plugins, Delphi would be unusable for me - at least in bigger projects that go beyond the simplest use cases. On the other hand, the editor contains some valuable gems, such as the replacement of identifiers in a selection. A big thank you must also go to developers like Thomas and the Chinese team of Liu Xiao, without whom, in my opinion, Delphi would not exist in its current form. I believe the next big step in Delphi should be a built-in source editor like UltraEdit and Visual Assist for Delphi. That would make Delphi a real luxury IDE. The designer should also cut out some old habits, such as the dual-use structure panel (that should be replaced by separate structure panels for the Designer and the Source Editor).

    Skia Print Preview and Print in Delphi 12?

    @Keesver: Thank you for the code! But what does the treeControl do?

    Delphi 12 is available

    The most significant handicap in Delphi, in my opinion, is the editor, which is still stuck in the Stone Age.

    Skia Print Preview and Print in Delphi 12?

    Yes, please tell me how to do this. Thank you!

    Skia Print Preview and Print in Delphi 12?

    I need it for a VCL project where I use a TSkSVG component, which I need to PrintPreview and Print.
  13. Does Skia in Delphi 12 have a built-in PrintPreview and Print capability?

    Skia SVG Zoom?

    Since Delphi 12 Skia is part of the RTL. I have a VCL project where TSkSvg.SVG.WrapMode = Fit. Unfortunately, there seems to be no TSkSvg.SVG.Zoom property. What I need is: 1. Center the SVG AND 2. Zoom the SVG to a specific value OR Fit Is this logical combination possible?

    Thank you very much! But would a rainmaker dance also work? It's less time-consuming.
