RAD Studio 10.2.2 Annoying New Features. Help? – Forum – Embarcadero Community

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/07/24

Does anybody know a shorter, more permanent solution for [WayBackRAD Studio 10.2.2 Annoying New Features. Help? – Forum – Embarcadero Community.

Especially the first one is very important to me.

Ever since Delphi introduced IDE layouts, it would remember the last one selected. With Delphi 10.2.2 Tokyo not so any more: it ALWAYS starts with an imposed “Startup Layout”. If you delete it, it re-appears.

I have a carefully named set of layouts that depends on the monitors I am using.

The workaround – every time I switch monitors, at least a few times a day, especially when moving between places, for instance for meetings – is this:

  1. Start Delphi 10.2.2 Tokyo
  2. Select the layout for that monitor
  3. Save it as “Startup layout”

Then each time I tweak a layout, I have to remember to save it both as “Startup layout” and as the actual named layout.

The really dumb thing is that RSP-20138 Can not define default Startup layout is classified as

“Jira-Quality Sync Service added a comment – 29/May/18 2:50 AM
Issue is reclassified as ‘New Feature'”

Via [WayBack1, WayBack2] So Embarcadero broke the “Default layout” (now always enforces a new “Standard Layout”) upon IDE startup in 10.2 Tokyo, and commented on the bug report … – Jeroen Wiert Pluimers – Google+ which has quite a few nice comments and links, including:

Starting your Delphi VCL app meanwhile your mouse is moving, no accelerators are shown (Menu, button, focus rect missing… etc.) same when clicking a button to open a new form

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/07/24

Problem (D2007 and up)

If you are starting your Delphi VCL app meanwhile your mouse is moving, no accelerators are shown (Menu, button, focus rect missing… etc.)

Something similar happens when you click on a button which opens a new form, somehow UI State becomes a state which is wrong.

Solution

In a detoured Form.DoShow(Or in every OnShow event) :Self.Perform(WM_CHANGEUISTATE, MakeLong(UIS_CLEAR, UISF_HIDEACCEL or UISF_HIDEFOCUS), 0);

  • No repaint penalty
  • no flicker
  • accels
  • focus rect are always shown
  • system is not touched.

Just I in case I need to port CombineApacheConfig.py to OpenSuSE properly

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/07/24

I came across a nice tool that combines httpd.conf files:

python CombineApacheConfig.py /etc/apache2/httpd.conf /tmp/apache2.combined.conf

In case I ever need to fully port it to OpenSuSE, I’ve put it in the gist below.

For now it works fine on OpenSuSE when used with the above command. I might make the default depend on the kind of nx it runs on.
