    XMLDocument and popup windows

    It appears you can use a custom security manager for xml instead of messing with global user preferences. Building a Custom Internet Security Manager | Microsoft Docs

    Blocking the Windows Screen Saver in Delphi

    I see. Still, I like to add things for clarity. It's Delphi, after all 😎 Maybe, one day, on another platform, there could be other alignments, and then it will matter.

    Blocking the Windows Screen Saver in Delphi

    Your declaration of TPowerRequestType is missing a {$MinEnumSize 4} Not sure if the record should also be packed. Personally, I would add it, but the declaration from Winapi.Windows.pas is also omitting it. More Information here (German Language)

    New feature request: Open dfm as Text if malformed (vote if care)

    But what if the DFM is not in text, but binary form?

    I'm sure that page was basically empty, back in August. Now it lists a lot of interesting sessions.

    Record Alignement and Delphi 10.4.1

    That sounds quite nasty. I think I'll stick with Delphi 10.4.0...

    TestInsight released

    "Run selected tests". If no tests are selected, no tests are being run. It makes sense. But to be absolutely honest, I always wondered the same: How can I "find" the existing tests without running them all?" It never entered my mind I could just use the ⏩ button.
  8. Just take a look at https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/MPL/2.0/FAQ/: Apart from the fact that this is just wrong, what does GPL have to do with MPL?

    UWP update support?

    Automatic updates don't really have anything to do with "UWP". Automatic updates are handled by the operating system. http://docwiki.embarcadero.com/RADStudio/Rio/en/Preparing_a_Windows_Application_for_appx_Package_Distribution http://docwiki.embarcadero.com/RADStudio/Sydney/en/Submitting_Your_App_to_the_Windows_Store and

    Really looking forward to some additions via GetIt. However, I don't quite understand their "Desktop UX Summit" announcement. What is it, some kind of webinar?

    APPX & ProgramData Folder...

    I haven't quite understood if your issue is that The files from your installer are expected to be in C:\Program Files\WindowsApps\package_name\VFS\Common App Data, but they are not The files are there, but your application does not find them

    Delphi 10.3.3/10.4 IDE Editor on VMware speed issue

    Is that scaling still an issue for you? Can control Hyper-V whether it assigns the DPI of your host to the guest. It's in the "enhanced session" or whatever it's called in English version. I'm running RAD Studio 10.0 and 10.4 on a 5 year old desktop computer. I gave the VM two cores and a dynamic amount of RAM, not exceeding 6.5 GB. I'm quite happy with the performance...

    Whats the idea behind Dev-Cpp support ?

    Oh my, Dev-Cpp brings back memories. I never knew it was built with Delphi/C++ Builder.

    Where to put SQLite/MDB database in UWP app

    A deployment manager deploys files. It's not an installer. Maybe they will add something like this once RAD Studio will also support MSIX.
