Delphi IDE Explorer Expert for Delphi 6 to 10.1 Berlin

I wrote this Delphi IDE Explorer Expert when I was trying find the button for showing and hiding the background for the Firemonkey mobile form designer and turn the bloody thing off for good.

Later, I ported it back to Delphi 2007 to 2010 and also added support for Delphi 10 Seattle.

Then I started improving GExperts (or actually made GExperts improve the Delphi IDE dialogs), so I needed it also for Delphi 6 to 2006.

Now I have added support for Delphi 10.1 Berlin. You can find the sources on SourceForge.

Oh, did I mention, that it accepts user input even if the IDE shows a modal dialog? Very useful feature.

Delphi7Help4BDS updated for Delphi 10.1 Berlin

I have just updated my Delphi Help Expert to support Delphi 10.1 Berlin.

It allows to reconfigure F1 + any of the modifier keys Shift, Ctrl, Alt and Alt+Ctrl to call either a help file (you will need the old winhelp viewer that Microsoft dropped with Vista(?)), chm file or internet url. It comes preconfigured with a few example internet urls for searching with Google, Bing, the Embarcadero docwiki or MSDN.

This shows the result of Alt+F1 when the cursor was on the keyword “Integer”:

To install it, get the sources from OSDN, open the package for your Delphi version, compile and install it. You should then find a new entry in the IDE’s Help menu called “Configure Delphi7HelpForBds” which gets you a dialog where you can configure the actions for each of the key combinations.

This is a test release before Erik is going to do an official 1.39 release. Please report any bugs you may find (preferentially in the GExperts community on Google+ or the bug tracker on SourceForge)

In contrast to my previous releases there are now installers for each Delphi version. These installers should install everything that is necessary, including the files for the Code Formatter.


Here are the links:
