Delphi: turn off column or line block selection mode – via: Default IDE Shortcut Keys; Delphi Programming

Posted by jpluimers on 2015/07/30

The Default IDE Shortcut Keys – Delphi Programming was a good starting point to find out how to disable column or line blocks.

Since the table there is incomplete (even the Embarcadero documentation is wrong as some shortcuts can turn on and off a mode), here are the relevant shortcuts keys:

Ctrl + O + C Turns on/off blockcolumn selection mode Delphi 5 and up
Ctrl + O + K Turns on/off block selection mode Delphi 5 and up
Ctrl + O + L Selects current line (and turns off block selection mode) Delphi 5 and up

Jon Skeet’s speech “Back to basics” is really a good watch – via Jørn Einar Angeltveit G+

Posted by jpluimers on 2015/07/15

Thanks Jørn Einar Angeltveit for sharing this a while ago:

A session by Jon Skeet and Tony the Pony (which has strong teeth) presented during the Polish DevDay 2013 in Kraków, Poland.

+Jon Skeet’s speech “Back to basics” is really a good watch.

In a funny way, he explains why the simplest fundamentals of computer software text, dates and numbers can cause some real headace for the programmer…

In case you didn’t know: Jon Skeet is “Chuck Norris” on stackoverflow.com:

The subtitle is “the mess we’ve made of our fundamental data types”.

Some of the topics covered:

  • people
  • numbers and storage formats
  • strings and encodings
  • dates, times and time zones
  • scope things narrowly (YAGNI) in a conscious way, and understand beyond what you implement

He for instance shows that the fundamentals are both very much unknown by many among us, and less universal than we think.

Interesting. Not only about Delphi history, as Chuck has done so much more nice things.

Posted by jpluimers on 2015/07/08

Great post by Marjan Venema when you need to migrate your old Delphi programs to the modern Delphi world: 20 resources on migrating to Unicode with Delphi | Software on a String.

I’m glad that some of the links overlap with what I posted and presented in the past at:

Well done Marjan!

Windows Kernel object names are optional. Don’t give them a name unless you intend them to be shared. (via: The Old New Thing)

Very interesting:
