From a long time ago: [WayBackOur CTO has discovered an incredible way of making developers read his commit messages. You won’t even believe how he did it! | CommitStrip.

It seems others want to improve their commit Click-Through-Ratios as well, in a faint hope to get their pull-requests merged.

Delphi 10.2 Tokyo: they did not fix the broken documentation tab in 10.2.2 2004, but it is an “easy” fix to do yourself

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/06/06

Since the fix is on the forums server (singular!) and that one tends to be squirrel driven lately, here it is in full via [WayBack] I see they didn’t fix the broken documentation tab in 10.2.2 2004 (professional). It’s not a show stopper but a nuisance to fix oneself.

function setFrameURL(url)
        {
            if(url){
                document.getElementById('load_html').src = url
                $("#load_html").css("display", "block");
                var height = window.innerHeight || document.documentElement.clientHeight || document.body.clientHeight;         
                $("#load_html").css("height",(height)+"px");    
                var width = window.innerWidth || document.documentElement.clientWidth || document.body.clientWidth;         
                $("#load_html").css("width",(width)+"px");  

It works and takes up the entire page after you restart the IDE.
