The GExperts Macro Library expert can now display and edit keyboard macros that have been recorded in the Delphi IDE.

It uses the information I described in my article on Interpreting Delphi IDE Keyboard Macros.

You get to this dialog via the context menu of a macro.

It allows you not only to display and edit text.

But also special keys.

And, on top of that, it works with Unicode, in Unicode aware IDEs (>= Delphi 2005).

(The above are Arabic characters, but I have no idea whether it means anything. I just typed a few keys.)

Just in case you are interested in these two keyboard macros:

ReadOnly Property
Read Write Property

Save these files anywhere and load them into the Macro Library expert.

They are supposed to generate a property for a class’ field: Copy the field definition from the private section to the public section. Position the cursor on the first character and start the macro.
