    HIDPI problems on latest GExperts r4210

    Hi, I'm using D11.3 on HIDPI monitor 3840x2160 with 200% zoom (Windows 11). I've just updated GExpert to latest r4210 and now I'm experiencing some annoying problems realated to hidpi: "Procedure List" is unusable: the form is opened incredibly big it is even larger than the screen and only the first column with a very large font is visible. The only way to move is to press alt-space The "Grep Results" window is a mess: has some parts very small, some big same normal.. Grep Results: Procedure List

    Firebird 3.0 problem

    I don't know if this can help and perhaps you have already done this, but according to FB4 documentation, to use embedded version to connect to one database from several applications, you need to set the parameter "ServerMode" as "Classic" in firebird.conf (this was the default behaviour of FB2.5 embedded now changed in FB4 in "Super"). https://ib-aid.com/download/docs/fb4migrationguide.html (read section "1.5 Installing Embedded") firebird.conf comments: # ============================ # Settings for Architecture Configuration # ============================ # # Controls the method Firebird engine uses to work with databases and # related Firebird server startup parameters. # # The values are: # Super / ThreadedDedicated - databases are opened exclusive by single server process, # attachments share single DB pages cache inside process # SuperClassic / ThreadedShared - databases are opened by single server process, # but it does not prevent opening them in other processes (embedded access), # each attachment has its own DB pages cache # Classic / MultiProcess - for each attachment to server a separate process is started, # each database may be opened by multiple processes (including local ones for # embedded access), each attachment (process) has its own DB pages cache # # Type: string # #ServerMode = Super

    True!!! Thanks for help!

    Error 1400

    I spent some time to deep analize the MadExcept callstack and I discovered that the thread in exception was created by another thread not even executing (I can't find his "father" in the thread list reported by madExcept). Now I've rearranged same things in the steps involved in the app terminating phase to avoid this; I've also moved the IOmniTimedTask instance as a global variable to avoid strange dependencies. Now I cannot reproduce the error. So OTL seems working fine as usual! It's always a mess working with threads!

    It depends... I use both I'm using madExcept

    Error 1400

    I abandoned that trail: the problem is not the REST call. I've substituted it with a sleep(1000) and I get the same random error... The problem is somewhere else. Still investigating...

    Error 1400

    WiRL client seems using THTTPClient.Get and then THTTPClient.DoExecute to execute my REST operation (a PATCH). So I suppose that it is synchronous.
  9. Davide Angeli

    Error 1400

    I rely on the fact that by calling the stop method it waits and completes any ongoing operations. When the application ends, each TimedTask is stopped and its end is awaited. But in fact, if the REST execution is asynchronous, this might still be running. I don't know how the WiRL client works at a low level. Now I'll delve deeper.

    Error 1400

    It's not so easy to debug this; when I debug and put breakpoints inside threads, thanking our beloved IDE, I get often debugger freezes. In my case "DoSomething" code is a simple rest call (I use WiRL client to send data to WiRL server); the rest call is incapsulated in a try except to avoid errors. Til now my "DoSomething" was an anonymous method. Now I've changed my code and I pass a normal procedure to timedtask.execute. Things seem to going better but I don't think this was the cause of the error.

    Error 1400

    Before posting I tried several solutions, some of these suggested in this post: According to Primoz OTL book it seems to be enough to assign the IOmniTimedTask instance to nil to get the call to Terminate(INFINITE) and Terminate should stop the task... This works perfectley in a little sample demo. In my case leads to random errors (the app is very complex). I've tried calling the Stop method and then assign the instance to nil but I get the random errors too. I've tried calling also Stop + Terminate(INFINTE) + WaitFor(INFINITE) + assigning to nil without results

    Error 1400

    I recently started using Parallel.TimedTask and now when I close the application I get the same error in completely random mode. I can't simulate the problem in a small project. I'm using D11.3 and the latest OTL version. Some idea?

    Importing WSDL

    Maybe the problem could be that the WSDL contains an xsl stylesheet. Have you tried downloading the wsdl source to a disk file and then importing into Delphi from that local file?
  16. Hi all, I'm really becaming crazy trying to do this with Delphi... I've to interact with a SOAP service that implements WSS security with X.509 certificate so: they give me the WSDL file they give me a Java Keystore (jks file) containg a certificate, a public key and a private key password protected the SOAP request must be signed and crypted with the jks data the SOAP response must be decrypted and signed verified a request like this one: <soapenv:Envelope xmlns:soapenv="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/envelope/" xmlns:fut="....." xmlns:ass="...." xmlns:com="...."> <soapenv:Header/> <soapenv:Body> <fut:FutureConvocationsRequest>

<xenc:CipherData> <xenc:CipherValue>....</xenc:CipherValue> </xenc:CipherData> </xenc:EncryptedData> </soapenv:Body> </soapenv:Envelope> I've used several SOAP service but never with this kind of security so til now I've always used default THTTPRio with WSDL importer. I don't know if in this case this is the best approach but I've imported the WSDL file in Delphi creating all SOAP objects to use with THTTPRIO . Then I've coded the THTTPRio.OnBeforeExecute to inject the necessary data and trasform the request as needed. I've a regular license of SecureBlackBox components so I can easily read the certificate data from Keystore and using the SOAPSigner + XMLEncryptor components (with some post processing to adjust some Secureblackbox issues), I'm capable to transform the request as needed but when I send it to the service I got always an error like "The signature or decryption was invalid" (Unfortunately I can't get quick answers from the service provider because it is a government agency and not very responsive...). I suppose that could be an encryption problem because the XML soap request just signed (not encrypted) seems ok (just tested with SecureBlackbox SOAPVerifier). If there is here some SOAP Delphi guru my questions are: - do you know if exists a good tool to verify if the request is well formed? If the encryption is well done? If the sign is correct? - SecureBlackBox suite is very complex to configure... do you know if exists some other Delphi solution to obtain the result easier?
  17. I solved this thanks to the kind collaboration of the nSoftware assistance service (SecureBlackBox's developer). There were many challenges to solve to achieve the goal and very little can be found online. It is my understanding that this type of security is not used much in the Delphi environment. However I solved by combining several components provided with the SecurityBlackBox suite: TsbxCertificateStorage to read JKS file to reach public key (used to encrypt the request and verify the signed response) and private key (used to sign the request and decrypt the response) TsbxSOAPSigner to sign the SOAP request (to produce a WSSSignature) TsbxXMLEncryptor to embed in the request the encryption key (transported with RSA-OAEP sha1) and to crypt the SOAP request body (with AES128 algorithm) TsbxXMLDecryptor to decrypt the response (two items encrypted in the response: the sign and the body) TsbxSOAPVerifier to verifiy the sign in the response I've injected this encryption/decryption stuff in THTTPRio events, somthing like this; procedure TMultyAssociativeServiceWrapper.SOAPOnBeforeExecute(const MethodName: String; SOAPRequest: TStream); begin // save the original request (created by THTTPRio) for debug purpose SOAPRequest.Seek(0,0); (SOAPRequest as TMemoryStream).SaveToFile(FFileRequestOriginal); // sign and encrypt the original request SBBSoapSignAndEncryptWithJKS(FFileRequestOriginal, FFileRequestToSend, FCertificateFileJKS, OnPasswordNeeded); // ... do some other stuff ? // update the outcoming request with the signed crypted version SOAPRequest.Seek(0,0); (SOAPRequest as TMemoryStream).LoadFromFile(FFileRequestToSend); end; procedure TMultyAssociativeServiceWrapper.SOAPOnAfterExecute(const MethodName: String; SOAPResponse: TStream); begin // save te orginal response arrived from service for debug purpose SOAPResponse.Seek(0,0); (SOAPResponse as TMemoryStream).SaveToFile(FFileResponseOriginal); // decrypt and verify sign of response SBBSoapDecryptAndVerifyWithJKS(FFileResponseOriginal, FFileResponseDecoded, FCertificateFileJKS, OnPasswordNeeded); //... do some other stuff? // update the incoming response with the decrypted data SOAPResponse.Seek(0,0); (SOAPResponse as TMemoryStream).LoadFromFile(FFileResponseDecoded); end; SBBSoapSignAndEncryptWithJKS does sign + encryption stuff. SBBSoapDecryptAndVerifyWithJKS does decrypt and verify sign stuff. I hope this can be helpful for someone else who runs into this need. If you need the code of the two SBB procedures described above please ask me. I've used SecureBlackBox components but I think that same stuff could be reached also with ChilKat library. I did some tests with the demo library, it works at a lower level of SBB but there are several examples online that could be combined to reach the goal.
  18. Yes, with SBB is not possibile to reach the same request without doing some further manipulation of the xml and it misses also the reference list for decryption. I'm working on that and another problem I think should be the order of doing operations: I'm doing crypt+sign but I'm investigating if service aspect sign and then crypt. I will do theese changes but I could not test because of server down for maintenance. I'll report the results.
  19. You can't destroy the thread object until it's finished... It doesn't even have time to start. Maybe you have to do something like this: var x: TMyThread; begin x := TMyThread.Create(False); try // x.Start; // if suspended... WaitForSingleObject(X.Handle, INFINITE); finally x.Free; end; end;

    JSON superobject question

    I used JSON superobject for a while and it's good but in cases like this I prefer the very good Delphi NEON library so I could deserialize the JSON directly to Delphi objects. With NEON in a case like yours I could do something like this: Type TVoice = record public Engine : String; VoiceId : String; VoiceGender : String; // .. other fields end; TVoicesData = record public voices_list : TArray<TVoice>; count : Integer; end; TVoices = record public success : Boolean; data : TVoicesData; end; procedure TForm1.Button2Click(Sender: TObject); begin var sJson:= '{'+ ' "success": true,'+ ' "data": {'+ ' "voices_list": ['+ ' {'+ ' "Engine": "neural",'+ ' "VoiceId": "ai2-Stacy",'+ ' "VoiceGender": "Female",'+ ' "VoiceWebname": "Stacy",'+ ' "Country": "US",'+ ' "Language": "en-US",'+ ' "LanguageName": "English, US",'+ ' "VoiceEffects": ['+ ' ]'+ ' },'+ ' {'+ ' "Engine": "neural",'+ ' "VoiceId": "ai1-Matthew",'+ ' "VoiceGender": "Male",'+ ' "VoiceWebname": "Matthew",'+ ' "Country": "US",'+ ' "Language": "en-US",'+ ' "LanguageName": "English, US",'+ ' "VoiceEffects": ['+ ' "news"'+ ' ]'+ ' }'+ ' ],'+ ' "count": 50'+ ' }'+ '}'; var Voices:=DeserializeValueTo<TVoices>(sJson); for var Voice in Voices.data.voices_list do ListBox1.Items.Add(Voice.Engine+' - '+Voice.VoiceGender); end; function TForm1.DeserializeValueTo<T>(const aJSON : String): T; begin if FNeonConfig=Nil then FNeonConfig:=TNeonConfiguration.Default; var LJSON := TJSONObject.ParseJSONValue(aJSON); try var LReader:=TNeonDeserializerJSON.Create(FNeonConfig); try var LValue:=LReader.JSONToTValue(LJSON, TRttiUtils.Context.GetType(TypeInfo(T))); Result:=LValue.AsType<T>; finally LReader.Free; end; finally LJSON.Free; end; end;

    The Delphi 11.2 release thread

    In my case 10.4 was terrible, fortunately 11.2 seems working well (I'm using only VCL win32 & win64). At the moment, I've not installed the patch 1.0 because after several years of frustration I've finally a stable environment and I'm terrified of breaking it again!

    The Delphi 11.2 release thread

    Oh yes, I've tried both: in 11.2 works fine, in 10.4 seems not working as aspected (in my case)
  24. Davide Angeli

    The Delphi 11.2 release thread

    LSP is the minor problem of 10.4, you can also disable it if you want. The fact of closing the IDE every 15 minutes, in my case, is due to the continuous internal errors, access violations in dcc32 and so on that were fixed in 11.2.
  25. Davide Angeli

    The Delphi 11.2 release thread

    As far as my usage context is concerned, version 11.2 is a big step up from 10.4. I'm switching from one to the other working on two different projects and 10.4 is truly absolute crap in terms of stability. 11.2 isn't perfect but it has improved a lot of things. In my case when LSP no longer works, now in 11.2 it is always a solution to switch from debug / release or from win32 / win64 (for me these workarounds don't work in 10.4 and the only solution remain close/reopen IDE). I've been using 11.2 for several weeks now and the IDE has crashed only a couple of times (a strange Access Violation and one internal error). For me it is a dream to be able to work even for 4 hours straight without crashing! When I come back to 10.4 I have to close and reopen the IDE at least once every 15 minutes and the LSP is totally unusable...
