Little Delphi tip: after “Build the current build group”, do not be surprised debugging fails

Posted by jpluimers on 2021/04/28

The Delphi Build groups are great for quickly building a lot of projects in your project group with their various build configuration.

One very important tip though: it builds in DEBUG, then RELEASE mode, then leaves the IDE thinking all projects have been built in the project manager “Build Configuration”.

That assumption is only true, if no “Build Configuration” is “DEBUG”.

It means that if you start debugging your application right after performing a “Build the current build group”, and those include RELEASE as final mode, that your debugger will be using a RELEASE mode build instead of a DEBUG build.
