When you automatically check “Automatically close on successful compile” and the compiler progress disappears…

Posted by jpluimers on 2013/03/13

Every once in a while I manage to check “Automatically close on successful compile” during compilation, the compiler progress disappears, and I loose my clue if compilation ended or not.

This is how to fix it:

  • find the registry portion of your Delphi version, under either of these
    – HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Borland\BDS\#.0
    – HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\CodeGear\BDS\#.0
    – HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Embarcadero\BDS\#.0
    Where #.0 is your version number from this Delphi Release Dates page.
  • Under the key “Compiling”, find the string value named “Auto Close Progress Dialog”  and change it from “True” to “False”

    Is there a way to make that checkbox entirely invisible? I also find accidental clicks on it to be an annoyance.

    • This seems to be a case for Andy. :-) He already added a progressbar to that dialog, so he probably can easily remove that checkbox, too.

    Even simpler – make a syntactical error in the code. Compile. Compiler window will stay active saying “There are errors”. Uncheck the “Automatically close …” checkbox. Correct the syntactical error. Done.

  3. If I accidentally check this checkbox I open a project that needs “enough” time to build. While it builds I can uncheck the box and am done.
