  1. I made a simple wrapper for libdeflate and test its speed compared to default Delphi Zip library. Test performs compression and decompression of 1Mb XML file. Libdeflate is 3.4 times faster than Delphi ZLib (Delphi 11, Win64).

    FireDac cannot load Firebird 3.0 client library on Linux

    Thanks, there was unresolved dependencies on libtommath and libncurses
  3. Application is compiled with Delphi 11.1. I'm trying to connect to Firebird 3.0 on Linux, but getting error " [FireDAC][Phys][FB]-314. Cannot load vendor library ..." libfbclient,so (symbolic link) and libfbclient.so.3.0.10 are in the same directory as application. Even explicit setting of VendorLib with full path (tried both libfbclient,so and libfbclient.so.3.0.10) doesn't help. Libraries are from this archive: https://github.com/FirebirdSQL/firebird/releases/download/v3.0.10/Firebird- Interesting that when client library is replaced with one from Firebird 2.5 it is loaded succesfully, but 2.5 client cannot connect to 3.0 server.

    ANN: HTML Office Library 4.6 released

    I'm glad to announce a new release of the HTML Office Library: 100% native and cross-platform Delphi library for conversion and displaying documents of the following types: Rich Text Format (RTF) MS Word 6-2007 binary format (DOC) MS Word XML document (DOCX) MS Power Point binary format (PPT) MS Power Point XML format (PPTX) MS Excel binary format (XLS) MS Excel XML format (XLSX) MS Excel XML binary format (XLSB) Adobe PDF format (PDF) Supercalc format (SXC) EPUB (electronic books). FB2 (electronic books). Markdown. Outlook Message (MSG) MIME message (.EML) Outlook databases (.OST, .PST) The Bat! database (.TBB) RAR archives ZIP archives Whats's new 1. Improved conversion quality for all document types. 2. Significantly improved conversion speed and memory consumption for all document types. 3. Reduced size of converted document for all document types. 4. Document to text conversion is now much faster (direct text extraction and use of SAX parser for XML). 5. Added support for MIME mail messages .EML (including attachments). 6. Classes for reading Outlook databases (.PST, .OST). 7. Classes for reading RAR archives. 8. Classes for reading The Bat message folders (.TBB). 9. New THtOfficeDocument.AsThumbnail function for creating document thumbnail. 10. Added support for password protected office files (OnPasswordRequest callback in converion methods) 11. New THtOfficeDocument.ConvertStreamtoText for converting to text with support for callback function which get next portion of text during conversion. 12. New MaxLines and MaxPages properties to limit size of converted document. 13. Converted Word/RTF documents can have paged and web layout. 14. Direct PDF export for all platforms (no OS or third party library used). 15. Fully functional text search engine (can index documents from any souce: file, archive, database, etc. using implementation of IHtVirtualFolder interface). Conversion speed measurements: There are two compiled demos available (source code of both applications is included): 1. Simple document viewer: allows to view any document on hard drive using file tree on left side and HtPanel on right. https://delphihtmlcomponents.com/FileBrowser.zip 2. Search Engine demo: create full text search index for documents located in selected folders and find any document from application or Web. https://delphihtmlcomponents.com/SearchEngine.zip This demo also shows the following features of THtSearchEngine: Date map - found document number by year Type Map - found documents by category Completion Test on sample database: Note that search time depends only on amout of found/shown documents and do not depend on total document count. https://delphihtmlcomponents.com/office.html
  7. I'm glad to inform you about a new release of the HTML Library. It is used by thousands of developers from 50 countries, and now even the RAD Studio IDE.

Document sections (custom header, footer, page size and orientation for each section). 8. Support for different page sizes in print preview (each page can have own size) 9. System theme colors support (Windows, OSX), f.e. background: window) with ability to use custom theme color callback. 10.

  8. Just found serious bug in 10.4.2 when compiling to Win64 target: int64 value returned by function is truncated to 32 bit. In XE11 the same code works OK. F.e. this will lead to errors when working with files/streams larger that 2 Gb.
  9. Use Base64 encoding (SOAP.EncdDcd unit)

    TIP for Creating PDF Files from HTML / Image

    Thanks, I didn't know Edge supports header/footer customization. Are header/footer embedded into page or passed separately? Does it support different headers/footers for different pages?

    TIP for Creating PDF Files from HTML / Image

    Browsers do not support page headers and footers, different page sizes/orientation, printing page number and count of pages, repeated table headers, etc.

    HTML Parser alternative to MSHTML?

    Sorry, I forgot to mention that when using chaining, current node should be passed to XPath as parameter to prevent XPath walking up toi root. var D: THtmlNode; N, A: THtNode; begin D := THtmlNode.Create; try D.Parse('<body><h1 id="header1"<a href="a1">First</a><a href="a2">Second</a></h1><h2><div><a href="a3">Third</a></div></h2></body>'); for N in D.XPath('//h1[@id="header1"]') do for A in N.XPath('//a', false, N) do ShowMessage(A['href']); for N in D.XPath('//h2') do for A in N.XPath('//a', false, N) do ShowMessage(A['href']); finally D.Free end; Second parameter is "stop after first found node", third is current root node.

    HTML Parser alternative to MSHTML?

    Only when using THtDocument. With THtmlNode and THtmlStyledNode works without canvas units uses htmlpars; var D: THtmlNode; N: THtNode; begin D := THtmlNode.Create; try D.Parse('<body><div id="1"><ul><a href="a1">First</a><a href="a2">Second</a></ul></div><div><ul><a href="a3">Third</a></ul></div></body>'); for N in D.XPath('//div[@id="1"]/ul/a') do ShowMessage(N['href']); finally D.Free end;

    HTML Parser alternative to MSHTML?

    HCL is layered, HTML and CSS parsers has no dependencies on framework or OS. Class hierarchy is THtNode (htmlpars unit, only RTL) -> THtXMLNode (htxml unit, only RTL) | THtmlNode (htmlpars unit, only RTL) | TStyledHTMLNode (htmlcss unit, only RTL) | TElement (htmldraw unit) | THtDocument (htmldraw unit) THtDocument/TElement use VCL/FMX units for several reasons 1. Native controls in HTML page (edits, combos, etc.) . 2. VCL themes (theme colors support) 3. VCL/FMX canvas (THtDocument can draw on VCL/FMX canvas) But all graphics (canvas classes) is isolated.
