RAD Studio 10.3.3 Patches

February 28th, 2020 Posted by Embarcadero No Comment yet

There have been several patches, fixes and workarounds released recently for RAD Studio 10.3.3. They can be a bit hard to keep track of, so we’ll try and keep this post up to date with links to all of them.

I’m sure they’ll roll up into an update at some point, but if any of these affect you directly, you can grab them individually:

Enterprise Connectors on CodeRage 2019

December 12th, 2019 Posted by Embarcadero No Comment yet

I mentioned on a previous This Month in RAD Studio that CodeRage 2019 is currently on, and this week I gave a session on setting up the Connection component in Enterprise Connectors.

 

It’s fairly short (around 15 minutes) but I go into customising the connection to:

  • look for the OAuth Token in a custom location
  • trigger the OAuth process if it doesn’t find a token
  • creating the Google API credentials and putting them into your connection
  • customising the Consent Screen so your users see your app details, not CData’s

Automated Testing with Ranorex : Actions

December 11th, 2019 Posted by Embarcadero, Ranorex No Comment yet

The other day I posted about how I’m increasingly becoming a fan of the automated testing tool, Ranorex Studio. I listed a bunch of reasons and mentioned I would dive into more details about some of them.

 

So today, I’d like to start that, by looking at Actions.

Testing your RAD Studio Applications with Ranorex Studio

December 3rd, 2019 Posted by Embarcadero, Ranorex No Comment yet

Over the last few months we’ve been doing more and more work with Ranorex Studio.

 

If you’re not aware, Ranorex Studio is a Test Automation tool covering desktop, web and mobile applications. It supports applications written in dozens (or maybe hundreds, I didn’t count them all) of technologies and languages, but importantly for many of you reading this, RAD Studio is one of them.

 

I’m increasingly falling in love with this tool, for a bunch of reasons: (more…)

Network Licensing in RAD Studio

May 24th, 2019 Posted by Embarcadero No Comment yet

Many developers we talk to are not really aware that RAD Studio offers several different types of licenses. I don’t mean different Editions (like Community Edition, Professional, Enterprise, etc), I mean license types, specifically Named User, Network Named User, and Network Concurrent User.

However we regular run into customers who have requirements that are much better served by one of the Network licenses, but for whatever reason they’ve always been less well known.

So after explaining the difference for the umpteenth time recently I realised I should probably just write it up publicly so I have something to point people at. (more…)

Operator Overloading Explained

November 19th, 2018 Posted by Embarcadero 3 comments

In a recent Embarcadero webinar, Marco was demonstrating some new features of Records, including a new Assign operator that can be overloaded.

Afterwards I had a number of questions from people asking what it was all about. Why do we need an Assign operator? Why would you want to overload an operator anyway? After a bit of a discussion with them, I realised that rather than me trying to throw off a couple of sentences to explain it, I should probably write up something clearer.

If you already know what operator overloading for Records is, then this article possibly isn’t for you. But if you’ve seen this mentioned before and not been really sure what it was all about, then hopefully this article will help. (more…)
