What features would you most like to see in Delphi?

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

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. Winlicense embedded

    To be able to customize each of the licenses, ie something like Dell you can customize your laptop, or with some automotive brands with customizable packages.

    FastReport replace Reportman
    Integrated DevExpress
    Integrated WinLicense
    SecureBlackbox integrated

    This would help to grow quite Delphi.

    Thank you.

    • Rework IDE as MVC

      Rework the Delphi IDE as a model view controller. Release the source code for the presentation layer to developers and document the model. This will allow developers to roll their own IDE and derive custom tools.

      • 'Procedure List' addin

        I am in love with the cnWizards's Procedure List addin.
        It allows you to press Ctrl+D and search for a method by part of its name.

        In my past I have used the GExperts Ctrl+G to to exactly the same.

        This is also present in the Lazarus IDE.

        I believe it is high time to add this magic to the standard toolset of Delphi. This will eliminate the need to use cnWizards and/or GExperts being the onlyreally useful tool in those Experts.

          • Web Application like unigui (www.unigui.com)

            (Jscript), but it steel in Beta Test (0.9)
            I hope used it with DataSnap
            (Unigui= Web Application , DataSnap= MultiTier Access to Database)

            • Collection classes for large memory

              TList does not perform well with a million objects. In a 64-bit environment I want to be able to use the memory. BTree/Judy tree like structures that don't move so much memory.

              • Native StackTrace Implementation

                Getting a StackTrace via the Exception class is currently only possible through the implementation of a third party exception logger. It would be good if EMBT implemented a native version for Delphi.

                • use VersionInfo from dproj for msbuild

                  At the moment it is necessary to work with the .res file to have version info updated in the compiled executable.

                    • A code coverage integrated tool

                      I'd like to know what is the code coverage percent of my unit test suites (DUnit) !
                      It is very usefull to extend test where it is needed, and is part of the application robustness.

                      • FastMM4 IDE integration for memory leaks

                        If FastMM4 creates a detailed memory leak log file, the IDE should offer a GUI which allows to jump to the source locations where the leak has been created.

                        • Multiple document interface

                          All I want is the option to use a D7-like IDE. Stability is important and I worry that giving me the option might lead to instability, but I NEED to leverage my purchase of multiple monitors by have simultaneous access to any form windows AND the editor that I might have open.

                          • Introduce new WITH syntax

                            With statement is the worst syntax element in delphi language. Why? Because it makes code hard to understand and even harder to debug (variable evaluation hints don't work at all).
                            To be a useful feature WITH statement must have the following syntax:

                            with MyTooLongIdentifer as Id do begin
                            Id.DoSomething;
                            Id.DoSomethingElse;
                            end;

                              I would like to embed Open Office Write, Calc, etc in a Delphi application. OO is already cross-platform, like Delphi is now. It would require Java JVM, but that is a small requirement.

                                  • Do not split TStrings in dfm

                                    Save TStrings in dfm as is, do not format them because now is impossible to serach/replace/merge/track changes in SQL commands saved in dfm, because the original text was slitted in several lines (including word splitting).

                                        Please show the files used in a build process. The res, pas, dcu, dcp and bpls. Sometimes its hard to know what file is used in a compile time.
