  • New context menu shell extension to rename Delphi / Pascal units.

    12/21/2010 Phil Gilmore Renaming a Pascal file isn’t as simple as pressing F2 in Windows Explorer and giving it a new name.  The name of the unit inside the file’s content must match the file’s name or the compiler can’t find it when you build your projects.

  • To Ribbon or not to Ribbon? Considering the Microsoft Fluent Interface.

    03/24/2010, updated 04/07/2010 Phil Gilmore I have a friend who is obsessed with the Ribbon interface found in the latest Microsoft Office suite.  He has been heard asking “To Ribbon or not to Ribbon”.  The answer should be, as always, whatever is best, not whatever is new.  I work primarily on the Microsoft side of the software development

    Phil Gilmore 12/23/2009, revised 02/25/2010 Introduction Generics were introduced in Delphi in version 2009.  They were implemented as first class citizens in the Object Pascal language.  They work splendidly and support all the features you would expect.  This is a huge improvement for this struggling language.  If you are in the

    05/19/2009, Phil Gilmore Beyond the overlap they share with enumerable collections, sequences are mostly unsupported in C#. A notable exception are some of the static methods of the Enumerable class. Check them out. This support is all I need for most sequence work I do. But the support therein is insufficient for anything complex. To augment this support

  • Universal method chaining in C# 3.5

    04/07/2009 Phil Gilmore Here I will present a solution that provides method chaining in C# 3.5. I hope it helps you and I hope that we will see it added as part of the next update to the .NET.
