General / Re: delphi and C++ builder community edition is here...
« Last post by 440bx on Today at 11:20:00 am »
it has its own problems eg VS 2015 is the last known version that installs on windows 7, 2017 requires windows 10 to "work" which I rather not install.
Just FYI, VS2017, at least the community edition, works fine on Windows 7.   

It requires a microsoft account to use and you must login through that account once a year to update the license. All minor annoyances but crucial if you want to use it in a non connected machine or you use it once or twice a year and the moment it decides to stop working you have no internet access.
That is right.  Have a junk email account and use that to log in.  That' what free email accounts are for. :)

It's a bit heartbreaking to see how Embarcadero goes about marketing Delphi when one thinks about its roots.  Borland made a killing selling Turbo Pascal for $29.99 (admittedly that was a long time ago.)  I think they should sell a "basic" edition  (at that price today), just the compiler (32 and 64bit) a few basic controls  and let people have fun learning Pascal/Delphi.

Turbo Pascal was a great little compiler that created fast and small executables.  It was a great programming tool.  that could do everything that C could, with pleasure instead of aggravation.

Delphi could trounce any C/C++ compiler if its developers targeted C/C++ but, they probably don't have the Bs to do it.  It's all Cs instead. 

Fortunately, there is FPC and Lazarus.  It's a pretty good compiler and environment.  Both are in dire need of a better debugger (sorry GDB but your interface makes Windbg look modern.) 

General / Re: How to scroll up?
« Last post by Gammatester on Today at 11:09:39 am »
I guess, mean that you cannot use e.g. the Up and Down arrow keys to scroll through the  input line history (...)
I never had such behavior, no matter the input method or operating system I use. %)
At least under WinXP, Windows8, Windows 7 (32 and 64-bit) it is available for all FPC versions (not surprising, because as I said it is a feature of the OS). But with Raspi/Debian it does not work (at least not with Up/Down arrow, which are echoed as ^[[A and ^[[B without further action).

Cocoa / Re: cocoa trunk - TScroolBox missing scrollbars
« Last post by MISV on Today at 09:26:41 am »
Hmm... I had hoped there was an existing Cocoa specific bug report, but I will try see if I can figure out why it works for some and not for other scrollboxes
I will try.

I have noticed other similar problem with toolbars on panels where both ttoolbutton and tedit placed at top (designtime or runtime) becomes invisible (but sometimes repaint themselves if clicked)

But the issue posted at first post in this topic is the first case I think I create a reproducable test case for.

General / Re: A judge say Lazarus was a bad choice

well given the acceptance rate of pascal it probably is a bad choice.
