So I have spent about a week now with XE2 and FireMonkey and thought I would share some of the experience so far. After an initial peek and poke around, the first order of business for me was to migrate some of my existing code to the new RTL. First on the list was my own testing framework which I have been using for a few years now. Something which was on the verge of being ready to expose to the harsh light of day but which I had decided to wait until I had an XE2 (and dare I hope… a cross platform) version before releasing. So this will be the first in a number of posts dealing with specific things that I have run across. First up: Win32/Win64 cross-platform.
Today I was fortunate to be present in Auckland at the World Premier of the launch event for RAD Studio XE2. There is so much good to report that I really don’t know where to begin, so apologies if this post is a bit of a disorganised ramble. But here goes.
Having covered some of the basic use of multicast events, in this second post I shall start to build the implementation. In this first iteration we will provide the basics of a multicast event – managing and calling multiple handlers and the ability to enable and disable an event. The test project used in the previous video demonstration may also now be downloaded for you to experiment with if you wish.
