PNG

This time I fixed a bug in the PNG components. These components are quite up-to-date, contrary to the old TurboPower components.

Orpheus

During the last days I fixed two bugs in the good old Orpheus components. Both were related to the TPictureField component. As I mentioned several times you can use Orpheus in legacy code, but you should avoid to use it in new applications.

Did you know…?

Did you know that Delphi allows to add associated files to existing units? For example you can add .html and .css files to a unit, so that they are shown in the project manager. Here is a screenshot:

This can be done by adding the following line to the .dpr file

TMS Web Core uses this feature in order to add an .html file to a web form and an optional .css file as you can see in the screenshot.

Hands On With Delphi Part 2

Today I received my copy of Holger Flick’s new book “Hands On With Delphi Part 2“. From what Holger said I received the first copy of this great new book. Many thanks to Holger for this wonderful work!

Did you know…?

Did you know that TMS Web Core for Delphi shows web applications with the .web extension although they are regular Delphi projects with a .dpr and a .dproj file? The TMS Web Core IDE plugin is able to change the Delphi project manager in this way.

Today we released a new video. This time it is hosted under TMS Software TV. It shows how to synchronize HTML elements with the corresponding Delphi controls. Please enjoy it.

Mustangpeak

As I mentioned yesterday, pyscripter joined the TurboPack team. He maintains not only SynEdit but also the Mustangpeak libs. That’s why I merged the different Mustangpeak forks and pushed them to Turbo pack.

Many thanks again for your help and support, Kiriakos!

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.
