The feature I'd most like to see in Delphi is....

An OnAfterShow event

Sometimes we need to show various things when a form is shown, like another form, starting a progressbar, the form's OnCreate and OnShow just don't do the work as both are fired before the form is shown, Instead of hacking our way out or using the OnActivate event, an OnAfterShow event would be perfect

        This is one of the many properties/events I miss in VCL like:
        ClientDataSet.AfterFilter
        DbGrid.OnPicklistClick
        DbEdit.TextHint
        DbGrid.FixedCols
        ...

        Agreed!

        We had to create a CustomForm which all others form inherit from to implement this feature, this should be on TForm by default.
