New to Delphi
I am new to Delphi & want to know good resources for learning to use it. Is there a list of good Delphi learning resources (books/online tutorials) somewhere? What recommendations can anyone make for someone new to Delphi (& only a hobby programmer at the moment)?
A couple of weeks ago I started with DelphiXE4 trial & have Googled for a few Delphi resources but I haven't found anything very good yet for me as a beginner. I'm just struggling along trying to learn as I go! (I'm presently struggling with DragandDrop...see
[http://stackoverflow.com/questions/17232...Access to legacy (Delphi 4) Midas server from Delphi XE2 [Edit]
My company biggest product is developped with Delphi 4 and uses several Midas servers. It's a really big application (still in evolution, since 1997) , that has been started with Delphi 3.
A partial or complete rewrite of this application is planned in a mid term future, and I must study if we can envisage a soft migration of some parts of the software on Delphi XE2 (or XE4), or if a complete rewrite even of the servers parts is required.
If a complete rewrite must be done, my boss doesn't exclude to study the possibility of using another development environment to rewri...Debugging in Delphi XE2 using another Delphi BDS process as host

Still using that old workhorse, Delphi7, but am going to the conference in
London hosted by Embarcadero on Delphi XE2.
Although I would like to "move with the times" and am keen to get the
UNICODE and 64-bit support offered by the latest IDEs, I confess to being
more than a little scared about all the UNICODE/String/AnsiString and 32/64
bit issues I'm probably going to fall over. Anyone recently upgraded from
Delphi7 to one of the latest Delphi IDEs?

The following code is supposed to send a text string to a client that is listening on a set port and ip address. The connection works fine.
The problem is that nothing seems to be sent.

// sStrm shows as () in the debugger
IdTCPClient1.IOHandler.Write(sStrm, 0, False);

...New table in Interbase not listed in Delphi XE2 for table name [Edit]
I created a new Interbase table in IBConsole and entered some data.
When I go into Delphi and use a TSQLTABLE and try to enter the table name, the new table does not appear though the other tables do.
I thought it might be related to permissions, but the properties of the new table sow permissions are there for SYSDBA, the same as the other tables, and sysdba is the user I connect to Interbase from Delphi as.
I also have permissions set for PUBLIC.
Also in IBCONSOLE when I click on the Server menu, the submenu included "user security" but it is grayed out, so I do not know ho...Delphi XE2 DLL can't be used in C# application [Edit]
For testing I am trying to call a Delphi XE2 DLL (see code) in a C# application (developed in Visual C# 2010 Express).
procedure CLP; stdcall; export;
However when trying to add the DLL as reference to a C# project the following message appears:
"A reference to 'D:\temp\test.dll' could not be added. Please make sure that the file is accessible, and that is a valid assembly or COM component."
When the same DLL is compiled under Delphi 2010 it works without any problem.
Any suggestions how to solve the p...Delphi XE2
I created a test server and defined TCP, HTTP, and HTTPS for the new server. When prompted, I supplied the necessary certificate information. The "Test" button returns success. I start the server. The TCP/HTTP listeners respond correctly from the client, but the HTTPS connections gives an error... "Socket Error #10053. Software caused connection abort."
The Certificates are self-signed using openssl.
Has anyone used the new built in HTTPS server successfully? I would appreciate some advice.

I had a project in Delphi 7.
I worked on it in Delphi 2010.
When I try to open the .dpr again in Delphi 7, the IDE toolbar widens across both monitors, and Delphi 7 locks up.
It appears that Delphi 2010 modifies the .dpr in a way that makes Delphi 7 unable to open it again.
All my forms & units appear to open fine in D7 after D2010, except for the warnings on the ExplicitHeight and ExplicitWidth properties being missing...
I can easily recreate the .dpr, but is this expected behavior?

...New to Delphi [Edit]
I am new to Delphi and arrived, perhaps, by accident.
I am by profession a .NET build engineer with enough experience with VB.NET and C#. Hobby-wise I program in Cocoa and REALbasic. I experimented a bit with Cocoa-bindings for C# and thus arrived at Delphi Prism.
Then came the special offer in the store where I would buy one thing and get another cheaper for free. A clever offer, given that the only useful combinations make me spend more money. And another 50 pounds gives me even more. So I finally decided to get the Delphi/C++ Builder bundle and Delphi Prism. I am currently in t...
