How can you guys use Delphi? :) [Edit]

This message is no longer available.

Seems that my post was deleted. (Rudy don't you have anything more useful to do?) So here it goes:
Every few years I take the current updated version of Delphi for a test drive and go back to Delphi7.
This time I installed Xe3 and compiled my project. Gee, the resulting program was full of flickers. A brief mouse cursor move on controls to show the hints left black rectangles on the GUI :D and the exe grew from 3.08 MB to 5.57 MB.

By the way, am I right to think that all versions since D7 are tied to different dotnet versions?

But did you also update your program? (Using DoubleBuffered, etc)

Is someone trying to impersonate you? If so, I will cancel that.

No, but you can better post some code/examples where you see this behavior.
It might be that your DFM's are not proper updated, etc.. 
What you describe is not a normal behavior.

It is not your real name anyway, is it, Captain?

1. You can change your name. Just change it in your profile.

2. Don't call anyone (including me) names.

No problem if that is his real name. If it's an alias, I'd rather he picked one that didn't conflict with an existing member of the community.

Bob, a ParentBackground property was added to (at least) Panels somewhere 
along the way, I discovered this can cause such flickering. Turn that 
property off on all panels and (and maybe GroupBoxes) and the flickering 
should stop.

Please ignore whatever all the other bob dawsons say.
They are probably going to tell you that they are the real ones, but don't believe them.

Can I Use Delphi 10 to compile for Windows 98 OS. [Edit]
Can I Use Delphi 10 to Compile for Windows 98 OS. I know its a bit out there, but I have an old Windows 98 SE industrial touchscreen PC with one of my applications running on it in Windows 98 SE. My cheapest option is to recompile my old source to run on it. I successfully complied it with Delphi 10 but when I try to run it on the Windows 98 PC it says " expects a newer version of Windows. Upgrade your Windows version". Basically upgrading this machine is near to impossible and giving them new hardware and OS will be very expensive as it is a specialist piece of hardware. ...

Delphi XE2 DLL can't be used in C# application [Edit]

Any suggestions how to solve the p...

Using Delphi 7 and Delphi 2010
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? Thanks. Tom Field wrote: > I had a project in Delphi 7. > > I worked o...

To use or not to use Delphi
Sadly, it seems to me that there is a sort of race between the two threads, for and against using Delphi in new projects, with more or less the same users posting in both threads. Arguments are fiercely debated in both camps. Borland had their own vision. As a community, now that Delphi has changed ownership I believe we should try to be more consistent, more clear, and more articulate in what we expect from Embercadero in terms of Delphi. We can contribute to keeping Delphi alive and moving in the right direction. "Laurent Cocea" schrieb: > Sadly, it seems to me that there ...
