Nugget: Class Hierarchy for Dummies
A short case study on implementing Class Inheritance in our Fault Monitoring System. Demonstrated via a plethora of label layouts.
Nugget: Syntax Highlighting
The minefield that is syntax highlighting :-
- Determining viewports. Balancing text block size against speed of highlighting.
- Syntax highlighting routine – as fast and efficient as possible.
- When to trigger the routine. What events are covered and what are not (currently).
Brian looks in more depth into some of the new features found in RAD Studio XE7 to save you from doing the research yourself.
Please note: This is the provisional and is subject to change. We will update this page with future meetings soon.
