    Getting the Windows version

    Hi Thomas, I have had a look at the OSDN page. Where/how does one actually download the dzLib? I don't recognise any download type prompt. Regards & TIA, Ian

    Function embedded in a function?

    Hi Team, I think, from time to time I have seen a function embedded in another function. I think. Something like.. function foobar(param1, param2: string): string; var somevar: string; begin function inside(Param3: string): string; var anothervar: string; Begin Do something with Param3; .... ... Result := anothervar; end; ... Somevar := inside(somestring); Result := Somevar; end; Is this doable? If so, what is the mechanism for it pls? Why do I want to do this? So I can embed a function in the main function and not have to have it as a separate app function. Regards & TIA, Ian

    Alternative directory for .drc & .map files?

    Hi Sue, Excellent. Works perfectly. Thank you. Regards, Ian
  6. Hi Guys, When I build my Apps I send the .exe files to an Applications folder for testing. When I do that, the .drc and .map files go there too. Is there any way to have the .drc & .map files stay in the source/development directory, or somewhere else, rather than the Apps directory? Regards & TIA, Ian

    OK. Instructions are correct. I just can't read straight. :-(

    Delphi 10.3.1 IDE Favourites no longer working??

    Hi Guys, Thanks for the Pointer and additional info. Installed and being populated as I type. Instructions for disabling the standard Welcome Page in the registry don't seem to match for D10.3. Not game to experiment so left as is. Still be interested to find out why the standard Welcome Page no longer works. Regards, Ian

    Delphi 10.3.1 IDE Favourites no longer working??

    Hmmm. Although all the Favorite Projects and the Open Recently are showing, none of them will open when selected. 😞 They did this morning. File Associations seem to be OK. I can double click on a .dproj file and it opens OK.
  10. Hi Guys, My IDE has suddenly stopped opening all the Favorite Projects in the Welcome Window. They are all showing. It won't even allow me to Delete them. I have rebooted the PC and restarted Delphi but NG. Any thoughts/suggestions on how to fix this? Regards & TIA, Ian

    Changes in Delphi from version to version?

    Hi David, Agreed, but knowing where they change means I can insert conditionals relevant to the Delphi version. Ian

    Changes in Delphi from version to version?

    Hi Sherlock, Thanks for that. I was afraid that would be the case. I only have Rio installed so searching back through isn't an option. Sigh! I'll try one of the other links mentioned in the thread. Regards, Ian
  14. Hi Guys, Is there any kind of master/reference list around that details what has changed between Delphi versions? I am looking at an older library and the compile messages are saying things like.. [dcc32 Warning] xxxxx.pas: W1000 Symbol 'TImageIndex' is deprecated: 'Use System.UITypes.TImageIndex' and [dcc32 Warning] xxxxx.pas: W1000 Symbol 'TScrollStyle' is deprecated: 'Use System.UITypes.TScrollStyle' and [dcc32 Warning] xxxxx.pas: W1000 Symbol 'ThemeServices' is deprecated: 'Use StyleServices' amongst others. when were they introduced? I have come across this issue many other times when working older code. Regards & TIA, Ian
