One more reason to disable live bindings: it throws exceptions when a project is in a project group having multiple projects upon project group load

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/08/02

This was Delphi Berlin, but Live Bindings is not much better in any other Delphi version when opening a project group having multiple applications none of which use Live Bindings:

This is how you disable them in Delphi 10.1 Berlin from the console; modify your BDS version and BPL version for other Delphi versions:

reg add "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Embarcadero\BDS\18.0\Disabled Packages" /v "$(BDSBIN)\dclbindcomp240.bpl" /t REG_SZ /d "Embarcadero LiveBindings Components" /f
reg add "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Embarcadero\BDS\18.0\Disabled Packages" /v "$(BDSBIN)\dclbindcompfmx240.bpl" /t REG_SZ /d "Embarcadero LiveBindings Components FireMonkey" /f
reg add "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Embarcadero\BDS\18.0\Disabled Packages" /v "$(BDSBIN)\dclbindcompvcl240.bpl" /t REG_SZ /d "Embarcadero LiveBindings Components VCL" /f
reg add "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Embarcadero\BDS\18.0\Disabled Packages" /v "$(BDSBIN)\dclbindcompdbx240.bpl" /t REG_SZ /d "LiveBindings Expression Components DbExpress" /f
reg add "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Embarcadero\BDS\18.0\Disabled Packages" /v "$(BDSBIN)\dclbindcompfiredac240.bpl" /t REG_SZ /d "LiveBinding Expression Components FireDac" /f

(Reminder to self: modify bitbucket.org/jeroenp/wiert.me/src/tip/Native/Delphi/Scripts/List-Delphi-Installed-Packages.ps1 so it can generate these)

Edit: I have done just that: it now understands the GenerateDisablePackagesScriptparameter so it generates a small console script to disable various packages.

Diffing binary files in PlasticSCM through Beyond Compare

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/08/02

The diff engine in PlasticSCM is nice in appearance, but it lacks a lot of features for file types that Beyond Compare handles out of the box.

For instance, .RES files cannot be diffed:

---------------------------
Error
---------------------------
Unsupported file types for binary diff. Only images are supported (JPEG, PNG, GIF, BMP)
---------------------------
OK   
---------------------------
