Some interesting bits on interface delegation including a class helper trick – via Stefan Glienke – Google+

Posted by jpluimers on 2019/01/17

Every time he finds a new compiler use, I’m all like “wow!”. This time [WayBackStefan Glienke – Google+: One of these rare moments when the compiler positively impresses me found a new way to make single responsibility principle easier to attain by using a class helper to resolve interface delegation.

In the comments are a few nice tidbits on what the compiler emits in order to implement interface delegation and reference counting.

IDE Fix pack for Rio development snapshot – via Delphi-PRAXiS [en]

Posted by jpluimers on 2019/01/17

If you dare using Delphi 10.3 Rio instead of waiting for Update 1 to stabalise (and hopefully speed up things), you might want to try the development snapshot of [WayBackIDE Fix pack for Rio – Page 2 – Delphi Third-Party – Delphi-PRAXiS [en] that got released last week (thanks Andy!):

A new development snapshot of IDE Fix Pack for 10.3 Rio is available.

The Win64 (DCC64) and Android (DCCAARM) compiler patches should now work as excepted.


  • Added: Support for Delphi 10.3 Rio
  • Added: Fix for TStringList.IndexOfName bug (RSP-21633)
  • Added: Fix for access violoation in the Welcomepage JScript9.dll binding
  • Added: TCustomListBox.ResetContent is skipped if the handle isn’t created yet
  • Added: DFM Streaming optimizations
  • Added: FillChar uses Enhanced REP MOVSB/STOSB cpu feature if available for large sizes.
  • Added: Enabled CPU LOCK string assignment optimization for local variables
  • Added: -Oe (experimental optimizations) and -x-cgo compiler option extension (Remove of some unneccessary push/pop operations)
  • Added: Expression Evaluator allows array access to pointers even if the type wasn’t declared with {$POINTERMATH ON}
  • Added: New compiler option extensions: -x–compileonly, -x–reslist, -x–depfile, -x–unitstats
  • Added: More performance optimization for the DCC64 compiler
  • Added: TStringBuilder.SetLength optimization [RSP-19178]
  • Added: TStrings.GetDelimitedText optimization
  • Fixed: Packages with duplicate units may not have caused a fatal compiler error.

Getting the class from an TRttiProperty by using MetaclassType

Posted by jpluimers on 2019/01/09

Basically I learned that I should not only look for ClassType, but also for MetaclassType: [WayBack] Not a major problem, but given that xProp is a TRttiProperty instance is there a better way to get the ClassType of a property that is tkClass? – Chad Hower – Google+:

Chris Rolliston

The System.Rtti way is this –

x := xProp.PropertyType.AsInstance.MetaclassType;

Been in since TRttiContext was first added, IIRC.

It indeed has been documented since Delphi 2010: [] Rtti.TRttiClassRefType.MetaclassType – RAD Studio VCL Reference

Delphi sorcery: Loop wars – measuring performance

Posted by jpluimers on 2019/01/08

[WayBack] Delphi sorcery: Loop wars – measuring performance – already showing some nice optimisations that should have been in the RTL into the first place, – sprouted into a nice discussion at [WayBack] Since there was this offtopic argument going on about performance of for-in versus for-to. – Stefan Glienke – Google+ with some relatively straightforward forand for ... in loop compiler optimizations that could be done, but we have dreamt of for like the last decade or two.
