This book will make you a faster Delphi developer, it doesn't matter if you are just starting out, or have been using Delphi since version 1, you will find all sorts of tips, tricks and hacks to boost your productivity.
Finding suitable and consistent images for buttons, menus and splash screens can be a difficult task - why not make your own? In this video we focus on how we can draw our own images for Delphi applications (or indeed any application) using Inkscape and other tools. This video was part of CodeRage 9 and is 33 minutes long.
Here we take a look at the Express Quantum Grid from DevExpress. This is the first in a series, and in this video we take a look at what the end user sees if we leave all the properties on their defaults. We contrast this with what you get with the standard TDBGrid that comes in Delphi. The video is on YouTube and is 6:32 long.
This video is a replay of the Skill Sprint that I produced for Embarcadero. Refactoring is a set techniques for modifying existing code without changing its external behavior, this allows you to improve the quality of existing code without breaking it or to modify existing code to make adding a feature easier. Sound interesting? Watch it on YouTube (it's about 30 minutes long).
In this video we take a look at using structural highlighting, and how it can help make your code easier to understand. This is one of the many cool features of the free Delphi IDE plugin CnWizards from CnPack.org. I hope to cover some of it's other features in future videos. This video is under 4 minutes in length and you can watch it here.
In this YouTube video we look at how to change the mouse cursor in FireMonkey in a way that should work on all platforms (although I've not tested it). We further look at how we can do this with a single line of code, using a cleaver trick by returning an interface from a function. The video is about 12 minutes long.
