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 :-

  1. Determining viewports. Balancing text block size against speed of highlighting.
  2. Syntax highlighting routine – as fast and efficient as possible.
  3. When to trigger the routine. What events are covered and what are not (currently).

Discussion: XE7

Brian looks in more depth into some of the new features found in RAD Studio XE7 to save you from doing the research yourself.
