    Do you need an ARM64 compiler for Windows?

    Hey people back to work...... VS 2022 ARM is out as preview. I have installed on a Mac-Mini M1 Parallels WIN11 ARM. The speed is superb.

    ANN: Skia4Delphi v3.0.2

    I'm testing it at Moment with VCL, so a FMX Canvas is out Another Question: How thread save is SKIA? We prepare a lot oaf Drawing-Layers in Threads and put it together after finished. Works well with Cairo. At Moment I check first the Speed of Drawings to decide if it is worth to switch

    ANN: Skia4Delphi v3.0.2

    Is there a way to print a Skia Graphic to Printer on Windows? I'm evaluating Ski as a replacement for Cairo. In Cairo on Windows we can directly print to a Printer HDC

    Delphi and the new Apple M1 CPU

    I don't think there will be an Emulation on M1 for running x86 Windows. So as Delphi Developer the latest 2019 MPro will be the latest. I would like to see an option but without a ARM Windows with a fast Emulation? no hope. I have here a a 2019 MacBook Pro 16" with I9 from last year so I think there is time to wait. But the "want have" is so "BIG".

    VCL Handling of dpi changes - poor performance

    In short: Yes

    Improving type safety

    Look at this: program Project20; {$APPTYPE CONSOLE} {$R *.res} uses System.SysUtils; type TVectorD3 = record x, y, z: Double; end; TDirection = type TVectorD3; {$WARN UNSAFE_CAST ON} procedure Test; var V: TVectorD3; D: TDirection; begin V := default (TVectorD3); D := TDirection(V); end; begin try Test; except on E: Exception do Writeln(E.ClassName, ': ', E.Message); end; end. Will also produce a Warning. So if you enable UNSAFE_CAST there will be a lot of Warnings. And every place surround with a {$WARN UNSAFE_CAST OFF} is a bad Idea But I'm with Stefan here. A new Warning for Pointer Assignment would be fine.

    What is the usecase? sorry for asking, but I want to understand....
  8. I would declaree it all as types so t type Pmedia_track_t = libvlc_media_track_t^; PPmedia_track_t = ^Pmedia_track_t; and then function libvlc_media_tracks_get(p_md : libvlc_media_t_ptr; var tracks : PPmedia_track_t) : LongWord; cdecl; procedure libvlc_media_tracks_release(tracks : PPmedia_track_t; i_count : LongWord ); cdecl; use as: var LTracksPtr : PPmedia_track_t; LTrackUse : Pmedia_track_t; LTracks : libvlc_media_track_t; // a record LCount : int32; begin LCount := libvlc_media_tracks_get( FVLCMIntf, LTracksPtr ); // FVLCMIntf is just (an initialised) pointer LTrackUse := LTracksPtr^; LTracks := LTrackUse^ ; // The above will point to the first record you can increment for the following or use a Array[0..0] of Pmedia_track_t libvlc_media_tracks_release( LTracksPtr, LCount ); // should work end;

    Delphi and Parallels for Mac

    with Parallels 16.1 and Big-Sure I don't see the problem anymore. But my Setup is a external Magic Trackpad and Keyboard. Settings for Keyboard and Mouse in Parallels id automatic Game detection
  10. Simply remove the keybinding in the MMX Settings.
  11. I'm using Spring4D all the time. Run the Test without debugger...... for me It is one of the best, correction, the best library for Delphi.

    Delphi 10.4.1 and the IDE FIx Pack

    You have never worked with C++ ? I don't think we will see it before a CE

    Analyze interbase slow queries

    I would recommend https://www.upscene.com Using it since years. Love it, but I see now I should really upgrade to the latest Version of the Workbench
  14. What are you smoking? Maybe you as technician should lern to read the docs? http://docwiki.embarcadero.com/Libraries/Rio/en/FMX.Grid.TStringGrid_Properties
