Delphi: 2 things to check when FMX/VCL units are inserted when you use VCL/FMX components

Posted by jpluimers on 2019/12/19

On G+Tom Field bumped in the [WayBack] issue that the IDE would add VCL units to the uses list when putting FMX controls on a form.

I’ve observed it the other way around as well, and there are two things you need to check:


David Nottage:

It has to do with whether there’s {$R *.fmx} or {$R *.dfm} in the unit. You may be able to get away with renaming the .dfm file to .fmx, and changing the directive in the unit.

Jeroen Wiert Pluimers:

 Your .dproj file tells you what kind of application it is (FMX or VCL) in the FrameworkType element and the IDE should respond to that correctly.

      How cool is that!

      Note that your fame is still archived in the WayBack link of the post. I try to archive most of the links before posting the blog article. Link rot and killing of services is all too common nowadays.

    It would be better if they could just use non conflicting resources (mainly cursors I found).

    Otherwise, if you are sticking to wintel land, fmx and vcl can play together in the same app.
