Firemonkey Threading Logic Problem

RAD Studio 10 My Firemonkey application does some heavy text processing, mostly using a TMemo to handle storage. One part of my program allows the user to open a form that the user can select a variety of text formatting operations. I spent much time carefully testing these routines under every perm...

How to print from a Firemonkey application

RAD Studio 10 I have on my form a Printer Dialog Component. The dialog opens just fine. However, in true Embarcadero fashion, the documentation how to actually cause something to print is not documented. I have text I want to send to the printer. Basically a text editor, want to print either entire ...

Re: Clearing clipboard part 2 ...

In my original post about clearing clipboard, I am using the code in a normal function. I call that function at various parts of my program, or when the operation is selected by the user. The problem you are encountering may be due to doing it in the constructor. Try just making a function, then at ...

Re: TPresentedScrollBox Doesn't Scroll

I just updated to XE10. A couple of programs that worked just fine under XE8, are having the same scrolling issues you describe. It is happening with several different component, the only common thing is moving the scroll bars the text does not move. The scroll button jerkily changes position as I s...

Re: when exit outside ide get "stopped working" error

I am having the same issue. Seems to be a setting in windows that I have not yet found. The timeout for when it decides that something is not responding is too short. Get that often with programs under windows 8.1 It pops up after only a second or two where if it waited just a couple more seconds it...

Re: XE10 C++ Formatter Options Missing

Well apparently Embarcadero is as attentive to details as ever (sarcasm) By going into Tools->Options->Formatter->Profile_and_Status you can save to an XML file all the current formatting options. Then agonizingly go through the file with a text editor changing options to how you like them. Then of ...

XE10 C++ Formatter Options Missing

After installing XE10, I am poking through the tool options to set things the way I like them. I do not like the default formatter options. The Tool->Options menu has settings for Delphi, but no settings for C++. XE8 had settings for both C++ and Delphi. So... How do I change the formatting options ...

Re: XE10 IDE Font and Style Registry Hack

If you are like me and find those structural highlighting lines annoying, XE10 now has an options under Tools->Options to turn off structural highlighting.

Re: XE10 IDE Font and Style Registry Hack

OK, here is how to fix the IDE font. Attached is a zip file with a .reg file that will make the registry setting to change the font and get rid of that awful blue. I chose the Segoe UI font at 8 point size, but you can edit the file or the registry entry to change it to you favorite font. Below is t...

Re: XE10 IDE Font and Style Registry Hack

On a side note. After installing XE10, I had errors when compiling my XE8 created project with some third party package files not being found (I already re-installed the third party packages). Deleting all but my source files (and backed up of course) then making a new C++ project then adding my sou...

XE10 IDE Font and Style Registry Hack

In the previous version of RAD Studio, someone posted on here a registry hack for changing the font and style used by the IDE. I just installed XE10 and Embarcadero is still using those huge fonts. I poked through the registry but could not find an entry that set the font and size for the IDE. Has a...

Re: RAD XE10

They have a new naming scheme C++ is now CX Delphi is now DX Rad Studio is now RX I notice that they now have full support for clang C++11. However looking down the compatibility details, the Apple compilers do not support those language extensions. So need to keep using the old school (which I pref...

Re: RAD XE10

I think I will wait a week or two before updating to XE10. Takes that long for them to figure out the major bugs and for the third parties to tweak their products. With XE8 I was shut down for 3 days because my third party libraries had issues with the new version and it took a few days for them to ...
