Delphi FMX TBitmapCodecManager.LoadFromFile calls TImageTypeChecker.GetType that returns ONLY predefined image types

Posted by jpluimers on 2017/12/31

Bugs happen: [WayBack] Did I miss something ? I’ve tried to add a custom image loader for FMX … TBitmapCodecManager.LoadFromFile calls TImageTypeChecker.GetType that returns ONLY predefined image types ! (gif, bmp, png, tiff, jpg) … – Paul TOTH – Google+

I’m not so much surprised by bugs, but what scares the heck out of me is that since about halfway October 2017, there are 900+ Reported issues with status Unresolved (i.e. no change to the issue after it got reported).

Before switching to half-year product release cycles, the yearly ones had an issue triage cut-off date of about 3-6 months.

Now back on yearly cycles, I don’t expect that to be much different.

Expecting a new release in the halfway March 2018 till beginning May 2018 time frame, and assuming the past being a good indication of the future, the window of processing issues is closing soon.

I really hope I am wrong and wish 2018 turns out to he a great Delphi year.

Sorry this post became victim to the “Missed Schedule” issue (I finally found out there is a ridiculous limit of 100 scheduled posts over which scheduling becomes unreliable; this limit used to be much much larger in the past).

[WayBackWarning: Please do not schedule more than 100 posts. Any posts scheduled beyond that amount will not be published.
