Code Editor/IDE

Welcome to our official feedback forum. Do you have an idea? Do you recognize a good idea when you see one? We want to hear from you!

I suggest you ...

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".

    • Code completion allow more flowing typing

      For the last year, I'm using both Delphi and VS2010. One thing that's really nice in VS is the fact that you doesn't need to press [Enter] to finish an word. Example: you have procedures CreateMonster and CreateWingedMonster. You do CreateW[ctrl-space], CreateWingedMonster is selected and if you press[space] or the start parenthesis the code is completed. In Delphi (2010 at least) you have to press [Enter], breaking the flow of typing.

      • Surround with block language elements

        I've found it in cnwizards. But it will be really nice to have them natively build in.

        try..finally..end
        with begin end
        while begin end
        repeat until
        {$if(n)def}
        {$region} {$endregion}

        • Add IDE option to run projects unit tests on save

          If this option is enabled, then whenever I save the source files, the IDE will compiles the asssociated unit tests (just a project in the same folder or project group). This happens in the background so I do not have to switch projects. The result (number of failures) will be displayed in the workspace.

          p.s. this is not my own idea but taken from a book about legacy code maintenance

          • Hudson / Jenkins CI IDE integration (build status)

            Hudson / Jenkins open source CI frameworks offer a remote monitoring API which allows to control the status of a build, and submitting new build jobs. The IDE could display the build status for a Delphi build on the CI server in the workspace to give a faster feedback about broken builds.

            • I want to return the compilation dialogue to the old style.

              10 seattle's compilation dialog is Flat style.
              It's very difficult to see because the item of the plural equals horizontal direction.
              The item is placed on the verticalness direction completely, or return the compilation dialogue to the old style.

              • Evaluate dialog / Debug inspector : Show real instance type

                Currently, the Evaluate dialog "Inspect" option shows a dialog with only the instance-members as specified by the type of the variable. Often, the variable only tells half the story, as the instance could be of a sub-class. Delphi should analyse the actual ClassType, and populate the dialog with those members.

                • Please don't translate a permission name of Android.

                  Please Show below image.
                  http://wii.serialgames.co.jp/~jun/per.png

                  All Android developers use Permission Name written in English.
                  But, Delphi localized version, Permission was translated.
                  I hope Permission Name do not localize.

                    when a test fails, double-clicking the test in the GUITestRunner result window should open the source unit of the failed test and jump to the first line of the test procedure

                    • Hyperlink functionality in the IDE source code editor

                      What do you think about the idea of implementing cross reference hyperlink functionality inside the Delphi source code editor? For example you could write a comment like this:

                      // [[IdentifierXY]]

                      Any 1-line text inside a comment surrounded by double square brackets will be recognized as a clickable hyperlink.

                      So when IdentifierXY is the name of a METHOD inside the current unit or current project, double-clicking on IdentifierXY would JUMP to the implementation of IdentifierXY!

                      Likewise,when IdentifierXY is the name of a VARIABLE inside the current unit or current project, double-clicking on IdentifierXY would JUMP to the declaration of IdentifierXY!

                      It…
