Delphi Version in profile

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I just joined (Thanks @Daniel for the new forum.) and tried to fill something sensible into my profile. It allows me to select the "Delphi version I use", which I simply can't, because it would be basically "All of them" (OK, everything >= Delphi 7). Maybe this should not be a single setting but a list?

Even that is difficult. I have worked on projects with whatever Delphi version the customer was using. And that changes every few weeks. There are some that seem to be more popular, like 10.x, XE2, 2007 and 7, but I would have to create a statistics to find out which one I used most.

Then choose your highest available version 😄

Thing is, this will show up under your name in the forum and a long list of versions would just create confusion. Check @Michael Puff or my post to see what I mean.

The basic idea was to give so additional information to other people answering questions. If you know that another user is working with Delphi 7, you don't have to give a solution with generics, for example. We could ask this question about the Delphi-version in use for each and every (technical) topic, but history learned us, that most people will just skip this input-field. So the intention was to make a "peristent" Information of it.

I understand that this works not in every case, but it looks like it is working pretty well for most cases.
