Strange text effect

Recommended Posts

In Delphi 10.4 GExperts, Uses Clause Manager shows strange text effect upon selection of a text item where every selected text seems to have a shadow:

Never seen anything like this. Has anyone else?

 

It appears to happen only in Uses Clause Manager.

 

I believe source code version is r3177.

A bug in the TStringGrid implementation in Delphi 10.4.

https://quality.embarcadero.com/browse/RSP-28821

Quote

[Regression] TStringGrid.OnDrawCell parameter Rect contains wrong values

  • new VCL application
  • put a TStringGrid on the form
  • put the code inside the event handler for OnDrawCell
    -> expected: cell background is painted red
    -> actual: only half of the cell is filled and there are white spaces around

BTW: IMO, a better and clearer naming consistency after :

 

"DelphiXx10Seattle",

"DelphiXx101Berlin"

 

would be:

 

"DelphiXx102Tokyo",

"DelphiXx103Rio",

"DelphiXx104Sydney"

 

When dealing with humans, REDUNDANCY is a must.

This still happens in Delphi Sydney 10.4.1

I use the dll from 5th September 2020.

Yes, I know. The problem is that the fix for 10.4 Patch 3 must also be applied to 10.4.1. For that to work, it must detect whether either of those is installed.

The released DLL doesn't do that yet, but the current source code does.
