    D11 Scaling issue??

    Hi Team, Win 11, D11 in HighDPI mode, 4k monitor. During design time my button looks like SS-12 attached on a TPanel. At Run time it looks like SS-13.. 😞 If I put the button on the form on its own it is normal at run time. SS-14. Is this a TPanel issue? The Button is a standard TBitBtn. Is it resolvable? I don't get this issue if I open Delphi with the /highdpi:unaware switch. See SS-15 attached. Regards & TIA, Ian

    The state of GExperts Support for Delphi 11

    Ummm. Why does this appear, then disappear while D11 starts?? In earlier iterations it just flashed on/off screen.

    No problem Thomas. Just trying to contribute. If it makes any difference for the Experts Dialog - I open Delphi with the /highdpi:unaware switch.

    Expert and Package Manager for Multiple RAD Studio IDEs

    Although not a competitor for the Expert Manager in GExperts, it would be nice if it showed experts that have been disabled in Gexperts and you could enable them.

    Hi Thomas, Win 11, D11, build 3656. 4k monitor. When I open the Expert Manager it doesn't allow me to do anything. I just get the Windows error beeps when I click anywhere on it. I can close the Expert Manager with Alt-F4. And Delphi is fine. So far. :-) Ian

    Hi Thomas, Win 11 PC with latest (this week) updates. FYI - Build 3656 fails to build for D2007 - D11 builds OK. Ian

    D11 - Form changes size when I compile/build. :-(

    Hi Anders, Thank you for your reply/offer. I am in the middle of a project att and again I have mitigated the issue by setting the form contraints. When I clear this project I will revert the build and have a play as you suggest and advise. Regards & Tks Again, Ian

    Ah Ha! It is the ClientWidth and the ClientHeight that are changing value.. 😞

    PC Specs for Delphi??

    Well that's a No-No. What normally takes 3 and a bit minutes was still going 14 minutes later... 😞

    cnPack has a setting to set the IDE to CPU 0. Anybody got any thoughts on the benefit or otherwise of this?

    Ahh. Hadn't thought along those lines. Will have a look. PCIE - Samsung 980s.

    PC Specs for Delphi??

    Hi David, Thanks for your input to the discussion. When I build a project group my CPU2 goes to around 80%-90%, the rest around 10-25%. Ian

    PC Specs for Delphi??

    Tks Darian, I use NVME drives and I have 32GB RAM. I note, according to the Win 11 Task Manager, that Delphi uses about 10-12% of the CPU when loading and then 0% idling. When I do a build it jumps back up, peaking at around 21%. Strangely, the Task Manager suggests this is 'Very High' Power usage. Huh? Ian

    PC Specs for Delphi??

    Hi Team, Apologies if this isn't the correct place for this. The PC that we develop on has evolved significantly since Delphi 1. We now have multi core, multi thread processors, SSDs, etc, etc. My question is.. What spec/hardware characteristic of a PC has the most benefit/impact on the performance on the IDE? Is it RAM speed, SSD speed, CPU Cores, etc? I currently run Win 11 with D11, 32GP RAM , fast SSD, 6core I7. Regardless of the spec of my existing PC, what is the single change can I make to my PC that will have the most impact/improvement to the performance of the IDE. I suspect this will be like 'what is the best code editor?' question. 🙂 Regards & TIA, Ian

    Format uses clause

    That works too.
