SynEdit

I just merged SynEdit. There were some great updated forks made by pyscripter that I compiled with Delphi Berlin, Tokyo, Rio and Sydney and also with the Sydney C++-Builder.

Many thanks for your help and support, Kiriakos. Good to have you on board!

Video

We just uploaded a new video on our YouTube channel. This time it is about a new feature in TMS Web Core. The feature is the so-called “LivePreview”. It allows to preview single forms in the browser. It fully supports project css files, form css files, frames and visual form inheritance. During designing in the Delphi IDE and for css and html files in an external editor like Visual Studio Code, the LivePreview detects the changes and automatically updates the browser. LivePreview is integrated in TMS Web Core since version 1.5.

And one feature I’m particularly proud of: it also works for non-saved projects! Everyone who ever worked with the OTAPI knows how difficult it is to implement.

At this point: special thanks to David Millington from EMBT!

Did you know…?

Did you know that TMS Web Core for Delphi supports regular expressions in the search paths? This means that you can add a search path like “c:\myfolder\*” that points to “c:\myfolder” and all its subfolders.

Dark theme

After a long period of hesitation I decided to move to the dark theme. I switched my iMac, virtual Windows 10 and particularly my Delphi IDE to the dark theme. Also the Total Commander and Beyond Compare could be moved. The only editor that cannot be moved is ConText. Maybe, if there is a demand for it I will convert it to the dark theme. So, if anyone is interested, then please let me know!

DOSCommand

Since I’m currently working on the TurboPack components, I just updated DOSCommand. There was a pull request by a user and I merged it into the main branch.

PNG Components

I synchronized the Turbo Pack PNG components with these ones. I also added an explicit cpp output dir for the hpp files. During installation with GetIt, the IDE now compiles the components and creates the necessary hpp files, so that it will be easier to use the components inside C++Builder applications.

Virtual Tree View

I just synchronized the Virtual Tree View with the official version. Both libraries are nearly the same, but the names of the packages are slightly different. GetIt deploys the TurboPack version, that is now also up-to-date.

LockBox reloaded

A user asked me if he can use the LockBox component in a new multi-platform application. I told him that he can do it theoretically but he should consider the following: LockBox has been developed by TurboPower that discontinued the development in 2001. From this time LockBox has only been ported to the latest Delphi versions. That’s why I would recommend to use it only in legacy code. Instead, I would propose to use the TMS Cryptography Pack produced by my friend Bruno Fierens. This library has been developed by Marion Candau who I met last year in Düsseldorf.

New era

Today I proudly announce that both my sons, aged 19 and 15, have now joined the company. Despite their advanced knowledge in Delphi they are also very interested and talented in modern technologies such as HTML and CSS. Also they like to produce videos. It’s so good to see the company expand!

LockBox 2

After a long period I found some time to work on the Turbo Pack components. This time I fixed an issue that the LockBox 2 FMX and VCL libraries couldn’t be installed parallel.
