In this video we take a look at some shortcuts to implementing interfaces on classes in Delphi. Knowing these shortcuts will save you a bunch of typing (and hence improve productivity). I produced this video in a response to a post by Nick Hodges (always a fan of his posts), in it he indicates there is no automated way to add interface methods to classes, while he is correct, there are some keyboard shortcuts to make it quicker, watch and learn.
The OnCreateItemClass event was introduced to TListView a few versions of Delphi ago, you've probably never noticed it but it's a big improvement on using the Data property on a TListItem - If you have no idea what I'm talking about then you need to watch my video on OnCreateItemClass here. It is about 9 minutes long.
This video covers how to handle Command Line Parameters in your Delphi applications, with them you can make your applications more flexible giving them some initial state (such as "myprog.exe /SafeMode") or instructing them to perform some actions at start up ("myprog.exe /TakeOverWorld"). This video is about 14 minutes long and is available on YouTube.
This is just a quick look at some of the resources available for when you get stuck on a Delphi problem. The video is (as always) available on YouTube. While there is a bit of self promotion in this video, I do cover many of the other commercial resources out there - although I did forget to mention that I am available for consultancy/traning (i.e. for a fee) if you need to talk to a real person about your Delphi problem.
This video is going to be the first in a series on porting an application from the VCL to FireMonkey. In this first part we take a quick look at the application and get it compiling in Delphi XE3. You can watch it on YouTube. The video is almost thirteen minutes long.
In this video we take a look at how we can use XML Data Bindings to simplify the handling of XML files. XML Data Bindings allows you to generate Delphi classes and interfaces that wrap around TXMLDocument and letting you manipulate the XML Document like it was a Delphi object. This video is about 50 minutes long and was prepared for CodeRage 7. It is also the second part in a series of videos on XML in Delphi, you can find more about Part 1 here. You can watch this video on YouTube.
In this video we take a look at the various object orient abstractions that Delphi provides. Starting with a public field, then a public property, then to an interface (with nothing public on the class). This video is about 5 minutes long and you can watch it on YouTube.
