This is a serious problem, given that not all share a certain Delphi

please correct example.
It would be nice if the new version of Delphi it would be a standard

now try with the D2006 demo. when dropping D onto C, the host
ejects C, and we're left with two floating hosts, one containing A and
B, the other containing C and D.
i am very nervous about tapping into the docking provisions of the
VCL on account of these differences.
if i add docking to my app, will i need to rewrite it with each new
update of the VCL?

RichEdit demo project and ITE compatibility
Open the RichEdit sample project, and try to add a new language
using Project | Language - Add Language. It will not recognise or pick
up the existing languages in the Delphi XE edition of the sample
project. Compare this to the Delphi 2010 edition, which worked fine
and was compatible with the ITE.
[QC Description]
Why was the RichEdit sample project that ships with Delphi XE in
C:\Users\Public\Documents\RAD
Studio\8.0\Samples\Delphi\VCL\RichEdit was modified compared to
the same demo that ships with Delphi 2010 (and older versions) in
C:\Users\Public\Documents\RAD
Studio\7.0\Demos\DelphiWin32\VCLWin32\RichEdit
Previously, the demo consisted of a RichEdit project and three
resource DLL files that would produce RichEdit.DEU, RichEdit.ENU,
and RichEdit.FRA, in the same way the Integrated Language
Environment does, and quite compatible with it.
The "new" (and in my view degraded) version in Delphi XE produces
the RichEdit.exe executable, but resource DLL projects that have
been manually renamed to RichEditDEU.dll, RichEditENU.dll, and
RichEditFRA.dll. No more locale as file extention, but part of the
filename in Delphi XE. Huh? Why this change? As a consequence of
this manual renaming, someone also had to go through the trouble of
changing the implementation in the reinit.pas unit, making it
incompatible with the ITE and ETM language translation tools in
Delphi. I really do not understand why this was needed...

TMaskEdit Documentation
Place a TMaskEdit component on a form, place the cursor in the
Editmask property, open the property editor and press F1.
[QC Description]
Documentation on the basic TMaskEdit does not assist in creating a
custom mask. The sample masks do not include a currency mask,
and I am trying to create a simple dollars and cents mask. (I wonder if
there is a reason this common need is not included in the masks?)
The documentation contains the following, but it never actually
explains the mask.
"Define your own masks for the edit box. You can use special
character to specify the mask; for a listing of those characters, see
the Mask.TCustomMaskEdit.EditMask property."
In fact, the "listing of those characters" is not found at the location
indicated - or anywhere else that I could find.

German translation of System.Copy is a bit misleading
[QC Description]
The translation of this help topic:
Steps:
ms-help://borland.bds5/delphivclwin32/System_Copy.html
to German is a bit misleading in the following sentence (this applies to
the docwiki XE versio as well):
The substring or subarray is a unique copy (that is, it does not share
memory with S; if the elements of the array are pointers or objects,
these are not copied as well.)
Der Teilstring oder das Teil-Array ist eine eindeutige Kopie (d.h.,
Speicher wird nicht gemeinsam mit S genutzt, obwohl Zeiger- oder
Objektelemente des Arrays nicht kopiert werden).
Look at the text in parenthesis. I can understand the english text and
its meaning but the german one puzzled me and I'm a native German
speaker!

Deploy to the Cloud - missing information
The EC2 cloud machine it just a server, and you need to define a
directory on that machine where your files will end up being deployed
to. So, if I want to deploy to a directory called "Bob", I need to make a
directory on the server, and make it shareable under the name "Bob",
and need to make sure Administrator can write to it. OK, so I've made
a directory Bob, set up sharing and made sure Administrator can
write to it. When you login to the EC2 machine, that login will connect
to the Windows Shared directory (not very secure, I know) and upload
the files. This may mean that you need to disable the firewall for a
while (in order to allow the incoming connection). From my laptop, I
could deploy quite easily to the EC2 shared folder Icreated at the
server, and my file is already up there as well now. The missing bit of
information from the on-line Help was the fact that the destination
folder on the EC2 machine should be a shared folder (so the upload
can take place).
[QC Description]
The online help page should mention that the destination folder
should be a shared folder on the remote EC2 server (I missed that
step earlier).

Help for TCustomIniFile.ReadFloat is wrong and incomplete

[QC Description]
At least in the german help (with help update 3 installed) the following
topic:
mshelp://embarcadero.rs_xe/vcl/IniFiles.TCustomIniFile.ReadFloat.html
is wrong because the first sentence of the description translates to
this english sentence: "Reads a boolean value from a INI-file". Float is
not boolean...
And the topic is incomplete, because it doen't tell the reader how the
decimal point is being handled. Is it fix a . (point) or is the system
setting taken? If the latter, can I override this somehow, perhaps by
assigning something to FormatSettings from SysUtils?

[QC Description]
TField's OnGetText event has a boolean parameter named
DisplayText. But the online help has no reference to what this
parameter is all about. With hope, when you select the link to
TFieldGetTextEvent, yes... you get:
This is type DB.TFieldGetTextEvent.
Now, the stranger thing is this;
TField.OnGetText Event description section has two paragraphs.
These two paragraphs are ,word by word, an exact duplication of,
Delphi 3's 1st and 3rd paragraphs (no typo, 1997 Delphi 3). Guess
what? The second paragraph of Delphi 3 documents all the missing
information.
From Delphi 3 help;
"The Sender parameter is the field component. The Text parameter
receives the formatted text that is used by the DisplayText or Text
property. The DisplayText parameter indicates whether the text will
be used for display purposes only, or whether the string will be used
for editing purposes."
Not being able to provide a decent documentation for a 13 years old
product, with 3 major updates after more than 1 years have passed till
its offering is one thing, crippling existing documentation is an other
thing.
Note that, this report is not about TField's OnGetText, it is about
documentation. I have refferred to Delphi 3's help countless times.
Unfortunately I do not own a more recent Delphi than the 3rd one and
it is missing lots of new technologies.
In short, I want decent documentation, and I want it with Delphi 2007,
not with a future version. Is it too much to ask for?

TStringList.IndexOf docs are incorrect
1. Create a TStringList. 2. Set Sorted=True and
Duplicates=dupIgnore. 3. Add 10 duplicate strings to the list 4. Call
IndexOf() with the same string as was added to the list. The IndexOf
return value should be 0 according to the docs/Help, but it will be an
integer near the middle of the TStringList.Count, probably 5.
[QC Description]
The Help for TStringList.IndexOf states "Call IndexOf to obtain the
position of the first occurrence of a string that matches S."
But this statement is correct ONLY if TStringList.Sorted=False and/or
TStringList.Duplicates=dupIgnore or dupError.
Otherwise (when Sorted=True and Duplicates=dupAccept)
IndexOf merely returns the index of *any* string in the list which
matches the parameter S of the IndexOf() call.
Why? Because if Sorted=True, calling IndexOf() internally calls Find(),
and Find uses a binary search to locate *any* string matching the
passed string parameter. In a TStringList where
duplicates are allowed, this will not always be the *first* matching
string.

If you want to see real trouble, try renaming a package a few times,
using dots in the filename. Not sure what else to give for steps.
2. Related issue: the true difference between Default Namespace and
Namespace Prefix is unclear. I think the documentation needs some
use cases here. I can give you my use case :
We maintain some open-source code, and update it occasionally.
Use ZaphodsMap as the example. ZaphodsMap classes are used in
Rubicon and WebHub. I want to use the SO Suffix to differentiate
releases, so that we can help people avoid problems based on
interface changes. I want to use the namespace idea to differentiate
ZaphodsMap-in-Rubicn from ZaphodsMap-in-WebHub so that both
products can be installed in the IDE at once, but with different source
code (say Rubicon is released in August then ZaphodsMap changes
then WebHub is released in September).
I believe that this issue is central to massive global cooperation
among component vendors. I am probably missing something .....
and/or this area is not fully tested.
Please see screenshots and ask me if you want further details. I have
not yet posted ZaphodsMap to CC because I wanted to sort this issue
out in advance, but I can post it if anyone wants to look at specifics.
Apologies if I am just being a dumb tired user. Hopefully not.

Steps:

Project options: search path -> MSBuild "-I" and "-U" are correct, but
"-O" and "-R" are not
- start Tiburon - create a new Delphi.Win32 project - enter
"c:\MySearchPath" into "Search path" on the page for the node
"Delphi Compiler" in the project options - enter
"c:\MyNewResourcePath" into "Include file search path" on the page
for the node "Resource Compiler"\"Directories and Conditionals" (this
is just to check if this path ends up somehow in -R option -> it doesn't
and I don't expect that) - compile - switch to the "Output" tab in the
message pane - copy the "dcc32.exe" line and paste it into
notepad.exe (or any other tool where you can better read and reformat it) expected: -Ic:\MySearchPath;<library path> Oc:\MySearchPath;<library path> -Rc:\MySearchPath;<library path> Uc:\MySearchPath;<library path> actual: -Ic:\MySearchPath;<library
path> -O<library path> -R<library path> -Uc:\MySearchPath;<library

[QC Description]
While using the source version of the JVCL I noticed that the IDE
does not add the search path to the -O and -R option in the MSBuild
command line. In fact of the incorrect -R option the resource files
could not
be found and I had to add the resource file path to the library path to
get it compiling.
Delphi 2007:
-I<Project search path>;<library path>
-O<Project search path>;<library path>
-R<Project search path>;<library path>
-U<Project search path>;<library path>
Tiburon:
-I<Project search path>;<library path>
-O<library path>
-R<library path>
-U<Project search path>;<library path>

Code Formater inserts incomplete CRLF sequence
1. Select following options:
Error Insight - on
Source Options - Show Line Breaks - on
Formatter Options:
Keep user line breaks - false
Line breaks un Uses clauses - yes
[QC Description]
Under specific circumstances when formatting only the selection of
the code, formatter will eat first character of the
selected code and insert only CR at the and of the selection.
After that not having a complete CRLF sequence in source code
results in other bugs (like Error Insight and Code Completion not
working properly)
I think that Copyright character in Documentation region in
attached sample code causes misbehavior. Other international
characters cause the same misbehavior.

2. Open attached project

Have I ever told you, what I think about the explicit properties?
Please do the following:
- Open Delphi 2010
- Create a new vcl forms application
- Put 2 buttons on the form
- Move the buttons at a bottom / right position of the form
- Now think, that the form should be smaller
- Really believe, that the form must be smaller
- Set the anchors of the buttons to [akRight, akBottom]
- Set the size of the form as small as you like
- Reset the anchors of the buttons to [akLeft, akTop]
- Wonder yourself, where the buttons have been gone.
- Now, ask yourself: How stupid are explicit properties?

When an enum type is defined when {$SCOPEDENUMS ON} is

When trying to use code completion for TSearchOption in
TDirectory.GetDirectories, I'd expect that code completion shows
TSearchOption at the top of the list or better
TSearchOption.soTopDirectoryOnly and
TSearchOption.soAllDirectories as this is what the user needs to use
as parameter.
When the user has typed "TSearchOption.", then the available
identifiers will be visible, but this is too late.
This is more or less "just" a usability issue, but it I think it is very
confusing for those who don't know about the $SCOPEDENUMS

IDE\Refactoring\Introduce Variable
Description:
Steps:
[QC Short Description]
Problems with Introduce Variable (Introduce Field)
1. Create a new VCL application 2. Create a new form and put on
button 3. add the following code (OnClick Event): procedure
TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject); var x, y: integer; zz: Integer;
z: Integer; begin x:=1; y:=2; z:=x+y; zz:=x+y+1; end; 4. Add Together
Support to the project 5. Now select the "x+y" expression, and from
the Refactor menu select "Introduce Variable". 5. you get a dialog
with the title "Introduce Variable" which correctly shows the new
variable type as integer and allows entering a name. 5. Enter a name
vor the new variable, e.g. "Summe" 6. There is also a checkbox on
that dialog saying "Replace all occurrences (2 occurrences found).
Check It 7.Press OK. 8. ...nothing happens
[QC Description]
The refactoring "Introduce Variable" opens a dialog for entering the
new variable name, but nothing happens.
The same problem also exists in the "Introduce Field" dialog.
This functionality is not working under D2009,OS Vista SP1
Under D2007 and OS XP this functionality is working correct in both
variants

IDE\Refactoring\Extract Superclass
Description:
Steps:
[QC Short Description]
Extract superclass fails for class that implements interface
Consider the following exampe code: type IContact = interface
procedure Contact(Msg: TMessage); end; TContact = class
abstract(TInterfacedObject, IContact) strict private FName: String;
function GetName : String; procedure SetName(val : String); public
property Name: String read GetName write SetName; procedure
Contact(Msg: TMessage);virtual; abstract; end; We can create a
TPerson super class which only contains a Name property and
GetName and SetName methods, but without the Contact method.
First, we need to select the methods or properties we want to include
in the super class. For example, select the GetName and SetName
methods, and then do Refactoring | Extract Superclass to get a
similar dialog as we saw earlier. In that dialog, we can specify the
name of the superclass and the namespace, and can also select the
specified fields (unselect them if you want less, but you cannot add
more like the Contact method), as well as specify which methods
should be made abstract in the super class. We can also specify
abstract for the Name property, but that will have no effect, of course.
Unfortunately, there is a regression in Delphi XE: the effect of this
dialog is that a new class TPerson is added, derived from
TInterfacedObject: TPerson = class(TInterfacedObject) strict
protected FName: string; procedure SetName(val: string); public
function GetName: string; property Name: string read GetName write
SetName; end; This is great, since although TPerson does not need
to implement the IContact interface (for the Contact method), it does
need to “include” the TInterfacedObject in order for it to be available
for the TContact descendent class. The problem, however, is the fact
that TContact now only implements the IContact interface, but does
not inherit from TPerson, not does it contain the previous fields and
methods that are now moved to TPerson. The definitions for IContact
and TContact are a bit empty now.
[QC Description]
If you have a class TMyClass (derived from TInterfacedObject) that
implements the IMyClass interface and you want to extra a super
class from it in TBase, then the TBase is derived from
TInterfacedObject (which is OK), but TMyClass is only implementing
IMyClass, and no longer derived from TBase.
Also, TBase is declared *after* the TMyClass and IMyClass (see QC
#88817 for another case where that happens).

The cause of the problem is absence of the call of the CoInitialize

because the real problem is neither with client library nor its version
nor the driver.
This can happen in a console application with very high probability.

terminates without warning. It doesn't even raise an exception in the
Delphi debugger. The process just disappears. The Windows System
Event log shows: "The ... service terminated unexpectedly" with event

If I do not set DelegateConnection to DBXPool, then every failed
attempt to connect to the database raises a timeout exception. This is
the behavior that I want, but I also need to use DBXPool.
I created a simple program to recreate the problem, but could not get
the simple programs to disappear like my production service does.
However, there is still something odd happening because when I use
the DBXPool as a DelegateConnection, it will timeout on the first
attempt to connect, and then on the second call it will simply succeed,
even though there is *no* database server avaialble and it would
therefore be impossible for it to be connected.
My guess is that memory is being corrupted somewhere and with my
service it just happens to kill the process, but with the simple
application it does not. In either case, it seems that the DBXPool is to
blame.

TSQLConnection requires presence of dbxdrivers.ini
1. Create a simple dbexpress application where a working
db?connection is being used to fetch some records from a given
database. Build the application in a way that it generates a single
exe file. Build the application in such a way that it would work on a
2nd PC which doesn't have a dbxdrivers.ini 2. Ensure the application
runs properly on the development PC 3. install all necessary
database client software on a "fresh" PC 4. copy over your exe file
and the necessary dbExpress driver dll but no dbxdrivers.ini 5. run
the application on the 2nd PC and notice that it fails due to a missing
dbxdrivers.ini
[QC Description]
TSQLConnection only works properly if a dbxdrivers.ini file with the
right settings is present in either the application directory (where
according to UAC rules a settings file shouldn't be) or in one of two
locations two registry keys point to, which is problematic as well since
those settings files would then be shared between different
applications on the same computer which could lead to conflicts.
Requiring a dbxdrivers.ini file also defeats the possibility to change
parameters of a TSQLConnection isntance at runtime. It is simply bad
design and was introduced after Delphi 2006 at least without any clear
indication why this was necessary.

'SYSCOMMENTS'" because it should be looking at "syscomments" in
lower case)
Using the new dbExpress drivers with XE and an MSSQL case
sensitive database (a database with a collation that is case sensitive).
As far as I can see the dbExpress code to communicate with MSSQL
is using UPPER CASE table names and column names and this only
works if the database is case insensitive. In actual fact the tables in
question SYSCOMMENTS and SYSTYPES (and all the associated
field name) should be in lowercase and the fact that it works at all is
more luck than judgement.
In previous versions of dbx for MSSQL the code used
sp_columns_rowset to get a list of column names for a table and for
some reason this has now been amended and hard coded as upper
case joins (DBXMsSqlMetaDataReader.pas)
This problem extends throughout the functionality of dbExpress
because you can then no longer look at meta data and therefore none
of the ApplyUpdates functionality works because the code cannot
determine what the primary keys are etc.

[This is a duplicate of QC 81143, because I was unable to attach a

TJSONMarshal.Marshal uses the localized decimal separator for
encoding of floating point values. This leads to data that cannot be
parsed on the receiving side if the current decimal separator is a
comma. Instead a TDBXError exception is raised, containing the text
'JSON byte stream cannot be parsed correctly into a JSON value'.

add DSAuth to uses clause of ServerMethodsUnit
Part of the new authorization functionality is the ability to mark both
server methods and/or the entire server method class with the
TRoleAuth attribute to tell which role(s) is authorised, and which
role(s) explicitly isn't. Syntax example: type {$METHODINFO ON}
TServerMethods1 = class(TComponent) private { Private declarations
} public { Public declarations } function EchoString(Value: string):
string; [TRoleAuth('admin', 'guest')] function ReverseString(Value:
string): string; end; {$METHODINFO OFF} Here, the ReverseString
function is only allowed for user 'admin' while user 'guest' is not
allowed to call it (and other users are not specified, so they will also
be able to call it, or so it seems). When adding the attribute to the
class definition, we get a compiler warning (not an error, but a
warning "unsupported language feature"). The warning is caused by
the fact that the compiler doesn't know about the TRoleAuth type at
this point (by default, the unit DSAuth is not in the uses clause), and
the actual effect is that this custom attribute is ignored, so no
authorization is done on the ReverseString, and even 'guest' can call
it now. Workaround: modify this particular warning ("Unsupported
language feature") in the Build Configuration and turn it into an error,
so people will see it as an error and not a warning. Manual Fix: add
the DSAuth unit to the uses clause. Embarcadero requested fix: add
the DSAuth unit to the uses clause of the ServerMethodsUnit
template, so it's always there... Thanks!
[QC Description]
If TRoleAuth type (from the DSAuth unit) is unknown, then the
attribute will be ignored by the compiler, producing only a
"unsupported language feature" warning.

json-min.js causes problems with jQuery plugins
Create a DataSnap REST Application wizard generated program with
these changes: - added jquery plus a couple of addins to the JS
folder - references those in the ReverseString.html file - added one
start up line that calls the validation tool, and causes the error (you
see the error only in a JavaScript console in the browser!) - the error
goes away if you remove the json2-min.js
[QC Description]
The bug I'm experiencing is between the "json-min.js" file added by
the Delphi wizard and some of the jQuery components (but not the
core jQuery) itself.
json-min.js is a rather out-of-standard JS library, causing problems
with other JS libraries. Namely I had serious issues with jQuery and
replaced it with json2.js from
http://www.JSON.org/json2.js
I also fixed the other JS libraries in DataSnap REST accordingly.
Can attach a demo I already emailed to
Steve Axtell <[email protected]>

who asked me to open the QC case...
Can also send the modified code with the fixes, if useful, but I'll blog

Deadlock in TThread destructor when constructor raises exception
when CreateSuspended is False
Steps:
program ThreadDeadlockApp; {$APPTYPE CONSOLE} uses
Classes, Dialogs, SysUtils; type TTestThread = class(TThread)
protected procedure Execute; override; public constructor
Create(CreateSuspended: Boolean); end; constructor
[QC Description]
TTestThread.Create(CreateSuspended: Boolean); begin inherited;
If the CreateSuspended parameter of the TThread constructor is set raise Exception.Create(''); // can be any exception end; procedure
to False, and then any derived class constructor raises an exception, TTestThread.Execute; begin end; begin try
the TThread destructor deadlocks. This problem was introduced in D6 TTestThread.Create(True); except ShowMessage('ok'); // this is
and still exists in D2009.
reached fine end; try TTestThread.Create(False); except
ShowMessage('ok'); // this is never reached end; end.
The reason for the deadlock is because the TThread destructor does
not resume the suspended OS thread when CreateSuspended is
False:
destructor TThread.Destroy;
begin
if (FThreadID <> 0) and not FFinished and not FExternalThread then
begin
Terminate;
if FCreateSuspended then // <-- here
Resume; <-- not called
WaitFor;
end;
...
end;
To fix this, the TThread constructor should be setting the
FSuspended member to True when creating a new OS thread object
(since it is always created in an suspended state), and then the
destructor needs to check the FSuspended member instead of the
FCreateSuspended member, ie:
constructor TThread.Create(CreateSuspended: Boolean);
{$IFDEF LINUX}
var
ErrCode: Integer;
{$ENDIF}
begin
inherited Create;
AddThread;

end;
RemoveQueuedEvents(Self, nil);

if (FHandle <> 0) and not FExternalThread then
CloseHandle(FHandle);
{$ENDIF}
{$IFDEF LINUX}
// This final check is to ensure that even if the thread was never

Make TThread handle naming the thread during debugging nicer
[QC Description]
Steps:
TThread uses RaiseException() to pass a name string to the
debugger for displaying per-thread names in the Threads window.
The generated code is not friendly to developers who use the
generated TThread descendant code as a base class for other
descendant classes. Those classes are not able to name themselves
properly, unless they call their own RaiseException() code manually.
The RaiseException() code can easily be abstracted away inside of
TThread itself by adding a Name property to TThread. See the
Workaround section for a possible implementation.

TPngImage performance
[QC Description]
You can speed up access to some, frequently used, TPngImage
properties. For example Pixels property. The "as" operator is used too
widely. In many cases, it can be replaced by typecasting. For
example:
function TPngImage.GetHeader: TChunkIHDR;
begin
{If there is a TChunkIHDR returns it, otherwise returns nil}
if (Chunks.Count <> 0) and (Chunks.Item[0] is TChunkIHDR) then
Result := Chunks.Item[0] as TChunkIHDR //!!!
else
begin
{No header, throw error message}
RaiseError(EPNGHeaderNotPresent, EPNGHeaderNotPresentText);
Result := nil
end
end;
Can be replaced by:
function TPngImage.GetHeader: TChunkIHDR;
begin
{If there is a TChunkIHDR returns it, otherwise returns nil}
if (Chunks.Count <> 0) and (Chunks.Item[0] is TChunkIHDR) then
Result := TChunkIHDR(Chunks.Item[0])
else
begin
{No header, throw error message}
RaiseError(EPNGHeaderNotPresent, EPNGHeaderNotPresentText);
Result := nil
end
end;
Or, better (without double calling TPNGList.GetItem):
function TPngImage.GetHeader: TChunkIHDR;
var
Chunk: TChunk;
begin
if (Chunks.Count <> 0) then
begin
Chunk := Chunks.Item[0];
if (Chunk is TChunkIHDR) then
begin
Result := TChunkIHDR(Chunk);
Exit;

[QC Short Description]
Incorrect painting of hot item on menu using Vista/7 themes
[QC Description]
Recent versions of Delphi do a decent job of supporting the new style
menus introduced in Vista.
Steps:
However, there is a minor flaw in the way the menu highlight is
drawn. The code in Menus.pas draws the menu highlight after
drawing the glyph. This results in the menu highlight being blended
over the top of the glyph. In fact the opposite is what is required,
namely the glyph being blended over the top of the menu highlight.
This can be seen, for example, in the RAD Studio IDE which clearly is
built from the same flawed Delphi code.
The solution is trivial. Just move the code which draws the menu
highlight (the call to DrawThemeBackground with MPI_HOT
parameter) before the code which draws the glyph.
Incidentally, you may be aware that Vista/7 themed menus can be
obtained, with glyphs, without using owner draw code. The trick is to
set MenuItemInfo.hbmpItem to be a PARGB32 bitmap in
TMenuItem.AppendTo. This would, for me, be a much preferable
approach to supported Vista/7 themed menus. The advantage is that
using system drawn menus makes your code more robust to future
releases of Windows which may change things once again. In
addition, you get the system native code for greying out menu glyphs
and thus making your app as native as possible.

Vista disabled menu items drawn incorrectly
[QC Description]
This report is related to 86876. That report describes the fact that the
call to DrawThemeBackground for (MENU_POPUP_ITEM,
MPI_HOT) is drawn in wrong sequence. I have also realised that it is
a mistake always to pass MPI_HOT. When the menu item is disabled
you should pass MPI_DISABLEDHOT.
This is why disabled menu items are drawn, incorrectly, with a blue
hot highlight instead of being grey as nature intended.
As I stated in 86876, the ideal solution would be to avoid owner draw
altogether.

Delphi XE, we see that the addition of strings does not occur, ie event
does not fire. While the bottom is that the images 1 and 2 are
swapped. In earlier versions of this event is triggered twice. IMHO,
should be triggered once! 4. Trying to press other buttons to verify
proper operation. Delete and AddIcon working properly. I suggest the
developers to independently verify the correctness of the other

VCL\Win 32 Controls\TRichEdit
Description:
Steps:
[QC Short Description]
The attached D2009 project includes 3 HTML files reproduce the
Unwanted null characters when loadng files/streams into a TRichEdit problem. The problem still exists in later versions.
[QC Description]
When the TRichEdit.PlainText property is True, TRichEdit's
LoadFrom...() methods attempt to load data as Ansi and decode it to
Unicode. During that process, the data is read in chunks and each
chunk is decoded. In ComCtrls.StreamLoad(), a check a made to see
if a chunk ends with a #13 byte, and if so then replaces it with a #00
byte, BUT it does not adjust the chunk length accordingly, so that #00
byte gets included in the Unicode decoding, which produces a null
character. The RichEdit does not display the character, but it is
present in the TRichEdit.Text property. If the data has line breaks that
occur at even multiples of the chunk length (2045-2046 bytes), they
produce null characters. When I ran all three of the attached HTML
files through the LoadFromFile() method, the #13->#00 replacement
happens exactly once for each file.

position because these macros return incorrect results on systems
with multiple monitors. Systems with multiple monitors can have
negative x- and y- coordinates, and LOWORD and HIWORD treat the

Debugger asserts when remote debugger stalls
I am investigating this to see if I can reproduce the issue -Angel
[QC Description]
When remote debugging, the remote service is failing (if not
debugged, the process just disappears) and this causes the IDE to
stop responding. I then close the remote debugger using the Exit
option, and the client IDE then gives an assert:
"Debugger assertion failure: "obj" in ..\win32src\rproxy.cpp at line 517.
Continue execution?"
The only option is OK, and the IDE disappears immediately after
clicking it.
It wouldn't be so bad if the remote PC details were remembered on

[QC Description]
When a client-application (compiled with D2010) is started from a
shared folder and the network-connection is lost there's no clean
shutdown - see below.
That happens even if the share folder is reachable again at the
moment of closing (for example: temporary dropouts in WLAN ...).
The problem:
Windows Vista
- the project1.exe will not be destroyed correctly
- it's closed, means no longer visible, but still visible in taskmanager
- after a few seconds it consumes 50% of cpu
- you have to kill it in taskmanager
Win XP
- you get a windows-problem warning on closing, but the process is
correctly
removed
It doesn't happen, when the same project is compiled with D2006.
I think you can reproduce it with a few steps.

The visualizer for TDateTime is a great idea. However, after trying it

It would be very nice to make replacer visualizers "recursive". In other
words, if we've said that TDateTime should be displayed as an actual
date/time (as opposed to a float), then this should apply to all
TDateTime values, even those in arrays, records, fields, etc.

Debugger\Call Stack
Description:
[QC Short Description]
Win32 project with packages.Call stack incomplete for errors in vcl
[QC Description]
I create a simple win32 project with runtime packages options
checked.
I have a Form, a button and in button OnClick:
Steps:
Self.Controls[3].Top := 1;
A statement that will raise an exception.
At runtime the call stack is:
kernel32.RaiseException
TList.Get+$3c
and does not contain the location in my sources where the error
located.
It should have been:
kernel32.RaiseException
TList.Get+$3c
TForm1.Button1Click
The main reason i think is that debug info is stripped of from the vcl
runtime packages. The reason is obscure to me. The sources for vcl
are available but you cannot recompile these packages with debug
info as there are no dpk projects included.
This lack of debugger support makes applications based on runtime
packages be a real pain to debug. This is true since Delphi 2 and it
was supposed to be fixed in Delphi 2005.
Sometimes the projects are developed in such a way, so there is
impossible to be compiled without runtime packages and work. In that
cases, this missing functionality is a real Show Stopper, that made my
team look for thirdparty tools. These tools rely in TD32 info for getting
the full call stack in cases when the IDE debugger fails. Why is
Borland not implementing the same functionality?

Debugger\Inspector
Description:
[QC Short Description]
Allow users to create their own Debug Inspectors for objects
[QC Description]
Allow Delphi users to add in their own debug inspectors and "register"
their debug inspectors into the delphi IDE for a given class or
interface. This would allow us to make much more intelligent
inspectors to show us the data contained in our classes in a much
more intelligent way while debugging.
For example, the one that really should ship with Delphi would be a
custom inspector for IXMLNode. Instead of showing us default
debugging information about IXMLNode, we could have a custom
inspector actually show us the data contained by IXMLNode.
Looking at the sample code below, we could have a break point on
the showmessage line and we could inspect variable lNode. Instead
of showing us this:
lNode | TXMLNode($A52690) as IXMLNodeAccess
the custom inspector would show us something similar to what
XMLSpy shows us where we could drill down through the XML DOM
and actually see the data contained in the lNode. See the attached
screen shots for an example of what this could look like.
Maybe for this example, Borland could actually get with the Altova
folks to take their XML Spy browser and fold it in as a custom
inspector.
This is just one example, the real purpose of this request is to allow
delphi users the ability to add in their own custom inspectors.

Add 3 line series. Note the colours.
[QC Description]
TChart v2010.01.10814 Win32 as included in Delphi XE Pro.
Repeat using Delphi XE. Note the colour set is no longer the same.
Up to and including D2010, TChart default colours for added Series
were red, green, yellow, blue - the
TeeChart Classic set. From Delphi XE, the colours are now white,
yellow, orange, ... (the Mac OS set).
Interestingly, I can see these different named sets of colours from a
drop down when you add a series
to a TChart at design time. Making a different choice here changes
the chart colours at design time, but
not when the program runs.
(can also be reproduced programmatically).
------------------------------When adding a line series make sure that TeeChart is selected in the
drop down menu
The colors of the line series are different at runtime than design time
Please revert the default colours to the previous set or provide a
single property to set the TChart colour
set. Our customers have got very used the series being in particular

Strings in Variants are not COM-compatible.
Execute the following code: program Project3; {$APPTYPE
CONSOLE} uses SysUtils, ComObj; var WS, V: Variant; begin
CoInitializeEx(nil,0); try WS := CreateOleObject('WScript.Shell');
WS.popup('!!!'); V := '!!!'; WS.popup(V); except on E: Exception do
Writeln(E.ClassName, ': ', E.Message); end; end. The 1st popup
works fine, the 2nd raises an exception. If we change (V:='!!!') to
(V:=ansistring('!!!')), or change V's type to OleVariant, the code works.
[QC Description]
Let us have a variable V: Variant, V := 'string', and have a variable
VObj: Variant containing a COM object.
Now if we try to invoke VObj.SomeMethod(V), we get an exception
telling us that V contains a non OLE-compatible value (to be specific,
it's a varUString value).
Note that with varString in V, such an invocation works well, just like
in Delphi 2007. So this ruins "string"-based code when migrating in
Delphi XE :(
I have a suspicion that this could be related to parsing varStrArg
parameters in ComObj.DispatchInvoke() and in Variants.pas, as there
is no additional processing for varUString there. But it's just an idea.

incorrectly. As long as resulting LRect is not empty, control resizes
and positions correctly anyway, because in TOleControl.SetBounds
it's bounds are corrected later by a call to inherited
TWinControl.SetBounds. But if Left >= AWidth, or Top >= AHeight,
then resulting LRect is treated as empty, and SetObjectRects can
make control's window invisible (at least this is what Web Browser
control does), and this is not corrected already. The control
disappears from the screen.
This problem affects both design and run time.
I've found this bug when using TWebBrowser, but it should affect
other descendants of TOleControl, too. In Delphi 7, there is no such
problem, because there TOleControl.SetBounds didn't contain a call
to IOleInplaceObject.SetObjectRects at all.
Also, note that in current OleCtrls.pas code, bounds parameters
passed to Rect function are a mixture of old ones - Left, Top, and new
ones - AWidth, AHeight. This can be a bug, too, yet I'm not sure.
Even if the code is corrected (by, say, replacing a call to Rect function
with similar call to Bounds function), it still will produce incorrect
bounds rectangle when we both resize and move control in one call to
SetBounds. So I would also replace Left and Top with ALeft and
ATop.

[QC Description]
The ComObj unit has two references to the varString type (converting
AnsiString to WideString). However, it does not have *any*
references to varUString (for converting UnicodeString to
WideString). Thus, when attempting to use a dispatch interface, one
must explicitly cast string/UnicodeString arguments to WideString (or
to OleVariant) because ComObj won't do it for you. Clearly, it should.

// -----
In Delphi 2006, the argument types passed to _DispInvoke()
(TCallDesc.ArgTypes[]) are "varStrArg or $80, varOleStr or $80" or
"$C8, $88"; the $80 indicates "by reference", and varStrArg is a
special string type defined in ComObj.pas. ComObj.DispatchInvoke()
handles varStrArg arguments specially in that it silently converts them
back and forth.
In Delphi 2010, the argument types are "varOleStr, varOleStr or $80";
as you can see in the disassembly the UnicodeString is passed by
value. There's neither a special flag nor special handling for
UnicodeString types in ComObj.
This could be fixed by adding a new special string type flag for
UnicodeString, handling it in ComObj.pas and adjusting the compiler
codegen a bit.

Also if you remove the parameter flags the Editor, accepts the
definition, but does recognise the property as "default", despite the

SafeCall function mapping not honored
[QC Description]
This issue addresses QC reports 68286 and 72637. Both have been
closed, when in reality they have not been fixed. This is now version
XE (2011). The last time this really worked was Delphi 2007. COM
programmers have been getting headaches with Delphi 2009, 2010,
and XE. That's a lot of versions for this functionality to not work when
it actually used to. Also, the workarounds suggested in those QC
reports don't work for me.
In Tools > Options > Environment Options > Delphi Options > Type
Library, there is a "SafeCall function mapping" group box. There are
three values: All v-table interfaces, Only dual interfaces, and Do not
map. The point behind the "All v-table interfaces" options is explained
here:
Objects in COM implement Interfaces. Those interfaces can declare
methods (procedures which don't return anything), functions (which
return COM types or other interfaces), and properties (which allow
you to get/set COM types or other interfaces). Ideally, when we
program with COM objects and interfaces in Delphi, we want the code
to look familiar. Therefore, if we set a property on an interface, we
expect the property to be on the left side of an assignment operator (
:= ). Likewise, if we call an interface function, we have the result of
that function being assigned on the left side of an assignment
operator. If we want the value of a property, then we just use that
property's name in code. That is the purpose of the safecall option
above. It declares all members of object interfaces with the safecall
function and those members can be used how we expect them with
normal Delphi syntax.
But Delphi 2009, 2010, and XE seem to ignore the setting. If you
import a type library with using Delphi 2007 or earlier (not 8), and that
type library declares an IEnvelope interface, it will declare a
Get_Width function that returns a Double, a Set_Width procedure that
takes a Double, and a Width property that you can get or set with a
Double.
But these versions of Delphi don't generate _TLB files like that. They
will import the same interface with a Get_Width function with an OUT
parameter of type Double, and the function itself returns an
HRESULT. The Set_Width method is ALSO declared as a function
that takes a Double and returns an HRESULT. And the Width
property itself, is nowhere to be found. Can you see the difference in
resulting coding styles?
Steps:
With SafeCall mapping successfully used in Delphi:
pEnvelope.Width := pEnvelope.Width * 2
Without SafeCall mapping successfully used in Delphi:
var
dWidth: Double;
begin
pEnvelope.Get_Width( dWidth );
pEnvelope.Set_Width( dWidth * 2 );
Now, this issue can be overcome somewhat by using the type library
importer (tlibimp) with the -Pt switch set to +. But the Type Library
Editor doesn't honor this setting. If you create a new object (or like
me, load one that was working in 2007) and you Refresh or create
new objects that implement interfaces, then the resulting methods in
your object are Get_ and Set_ functions that return HRESULTS,
despite the setting in the Tools > Options dialog. And this is just bad. I
don't like it, and I'll keep using Delphi 2007 for my COM development
until this gets good and fixed! Whether or not the QCs on this matter
are closed or not, I'll use XE for COM when it's actually fixed. If
Embarcadero is intentionally trying to throw me on .NET bandwagon,
it won't work.
Signed,
Disappointed Delphi fan
"Roj"
So many other things are great about Delphi that I wouldn't switch.
But to break something that worked before just makes me whine.
Notice that it stopped breaking in the very version of Delphi that
introduced the .ridl format. I sincerely don't know if that's a
coincidence.

Description:
Steps:
I'd like the ability to specify alignment inside blocks of asm code, and
I'd like the implementation to mimic the way TASM allows code
alignment, that being, via the ALIGN keyword. The BASM already
supports DB, DW and DD, as well as some other keywords that have
a history with TASM (TYPE returning the size of a specified type, for
example), so this seems more logical than using a compiler directive,
especially for BASM code. An example of how this might look in the
'Steps'. The place to note the difference is in the line before '@@1:'.
The syntax for ALIGN would be--
{ Just an example of some code with an ALIGN used inside the
assembly } function PosChar(Ch: AnsiChar; const S: AnsiString):
integer; register; asm { -> AL Ch } { EDX S } { <- EAX Result } OR
EDX, EDX JZ @@Error MOV ECX, EDX // save original pointer
ALIGN 16 // align label on 16 byte boundary @@1: CMP BYTE PTR
[EDX], 0 JE @@Error CMP BYTE PTR [EDX], AL JE @@2 INC EDX
JMP @@1 @@2: MOV EAX, EDX SUB EAX, ECX INC EAX RET
@@Error2: SUB EAX, EAX @@Error: end;
ALIGN [boundary]
Where [boundary] is an optional power of two address boundary (2, 4,
8, etc). If no address boundary is given, then a default is used
(perhaps the record field alignment specified in the project options?).
If this is implemented, it'd be nice if the EVEN keyword were also
implemented (I believe EVEN essentially maps to ALIGN 2).

Bug in code optimization
QC Entry 91586
This is a strange behaviour in Delphi 2010 that was different in Delphi
7: Example: I have a class 'TestClass'. This TestClass has three
public methods: Method a, b and c. Method a uses an external
function defined in a.dll. Method b uses an external function defined
in b.dll. Method c uses an external function defined in c.dll. Now i
create a new project that uses my TestClass, but it only uses Method
a. Now the strange thing: Using Delphi 7: I only have to provide a.dll
together with my application because Methods b and c are removed
due to optimization. Using Delphi 2010: I must provide a.dll, b.dll and
c.dll, although Methods b and c are never used. This compiler does
not remove the unused methods b and c. I did not find any setting to
change this so i suppose this to be a bug.

Allow procedure/function declarations to specify their entry point code
alignment
[QC Description]
This report requests that a new procedure/function directive be added
that allows the developer to specify the alignment of the
procedure/function. The new directive would be "align", and this
directive would accept an integer value following the directive that
specifies how to align the procedure/function. For example-procedure AlignTest(A, B, C: integer); align 32;
begin
// code
end;
Would align AlignTest on a 32-byte boundary, while-procedure AlignTest2(A, B, C: integer); align 512;
begin
// code
end;
Would align AlignTest2 on a 512-byte boundary. The value following
should conceivably always be a power of 2 (but I do not believe it
should be necessary to require this). If a calling convention is
specified, this new directive would behave similar to the varargs
directive in that no semi-colon would be used to seperate it from the
calling convention. E.g. procedure AlignTest3(A, B, C: integer); cdecl align 64;
begin
// code
end;
Would be correct.

When you supply an array of char (or WideChar) as parameter to a
write or writeln statement, a compiler error E2054 results. Using an

Save the attachments (or see below for detailed steps). Open and run

interface was used after it was freed (see attached screenshot). ------- To repro the problem from scratch: 1. Create a new Win32 console
app. Save it somewhere. 2. Download the FastMM4 distribution from
http://fastmm.sourceforge.net/. Copy the following files from the
FastMM zip into the same directory as your project file: FastMM4.pas - FastMM4Messages.pas - FastMM4Options.inc FullDebugMode DLL\Precompiled\FastMM_FullDebugMode.dll 3.
Make the following changes to FastMM4Options.inc: - Define
FullDebugMode. (remove the "." before the "$define") - Define
CatchUseOfFreedInterfaces. (remove the "." before the "$define") 4.
Add the below code to your project file. 5. Save all, compile, and run.

[QC Description]
When you have
(a) a record that contains an interface reference and one or more
methods,
(b) a function that returns that record, and
(c) code that chains a call to that function with a call to a method on
the record (e.g. MyFunction.DoSomething),
the compiler incorrectly finalizes the interface refcount too many
times, causing the interfaced object to be freed even though there's
still a live reference to it. This results in heap problems and sporadic
(though sometimes reproducible) AVs.
However, the problem can be verified easily using the FastMM4
memory manager in full debug mode. See Steps.
The problem line is marked "<--- compiler incorrectly releases
refcount too many times"; if this line is omitted, or the statement is
broken into two statements by using a temporary variable, the
problem does not occur.

Delphi IDE deadlock during background compiler operation
I have not been able to find reproducible steps, but from the recent
newsgroup thread in e.p.d.non-technical entitled "Delphi XE hangs
with Update 1" it appears that several other users also experience
this problem from time to time.
[QC Description]
From time to time the Delphi XE Update 1 IDE appears to deadlock
with a background compiler operation. The only way I have found to
break the deadlock is to delete all DCU files in the project folders.
The last time such a deadlock occurred I inspected the BDS.EXE
process using Process Monitor: It seems the background compiler
gets stuck in a loop opening dcu files associated with the project.
Since it looks in the wrong folders most of the time, most of these file
open calls fail. However, even after successfully opening a dcu file in
the correct folder it does not exit the loop, instead restarting the
search from the beginning.
new steps...
the IMPORTANT thing to NOTE is that the CodeInsight MUST be
switched ON to see the problem.
1) Extract the attached archive to the root of the C: drive.
2) Start Delphi XE
3) Copy and paste the library paths in "Delphi XE Library Path.txt" into
the library path settings of Delphi XE
4) Open the Project1.dproj in the c:\projects\CIMSO\TestApp1 folder
5) Compile it with Ctrl+F9
I am fairly confident that this is a new problem in XE Update 1, since I 6) Open the Project1.dproj in the c:\projects\CIMSO\TestApp2 folder
do not recall ever experiencing this problem in any prior version.
7) Compile it with Ctrl+F9
QC Entry 90864
8) Open Unit1.pas (pressing F12 should do the job) and view the
source
9) Ctrl+click on PSDForm in the "uses" list to open up PSDForm.pas
10) Modify the PSDForm.pas (adding a blank line anywhere will
suffice)
11) Select File -> Reopen and select
c:\projects\CIMSO\TestApp1\Project1.dproj
12) Delphi will prompt to save PSDForm.pas - Click "yes"
13) Open Unit1.pas and view the source
14) Ctrl+click on PSDForm in the "uses" list to open up PSDForm.pas
15) Modify the PSDForm.pas (adding a blank line anywhere will
suffice)
16) Select File -> Reopen and select
c:\projects\CIMSO\TestApp2\Project1.dproj
17) Delphi will prompt to save PSDForm.pas - Click "yes"
The Delphi XE IDE will hang somewhere between steps 13 and 17. If
it doesn't happen the first time, repeat steps 13 through 17,
alternating between the two test projects.
Workaround: Run clean.bat (deleting all dcu files) when it hangs and
the IDE will become responsive again.
Comment: the dcc150.dll seems to be culprit.

Regression: Delphi2010 shows error URW1111 and DelphiXE
freezes
By USc: - save the attachment - dcc32 GenericTest.dpr (or "dcc32
unit1.pas" with the code from the steps) expected: it compiles actual:
compilation "never" finishs Repeats also with this simplified version of
Generics.Collections. Removing the Foo method makes it compile.
unit Generics.Collections; interface type TList<T> = class(TObject)
procedure Foo; end; implementation procedure TList<T>.Foo; begin
end; end. Original Steps: There are two units: ////unit1//// unit unit1;
interface uses Generics.Collections; type TGenericClass<T> = class
public function DoSomething:TList<TObject>; end; implementation
uses unit2; { TGenericClass<T> } function
TGenericClass<T>.DoSomething: TList<TObject>; begin result := nil;
end; end. ////unit2//// unit unit2; interface uses unit1,
Generics.Collections; type TProblem =
class(TGenericClass<TObject>) end; implementation end.
[QC Description]
USc: This is REGRESSION from Delphi XE RTM. (Test case
compiles with D2009, D2010 and DXE RTM)
The IDE freezes when two units reference each other, and you try to
compile.
See also QC-Report: 78295
That issue where fixed, but this is slightly different.
If you try to compile the project with Delphi2010 it brings the internal
error URW1111. In DelphiXE the whole IDE freezes.

Hi,
When capturing a array of const argument with a anonymous

I notice that if I change the argument to a const Args: array of const,
the compiler complains that it can not capture Args.
{ Capturing array of const (TVarRec) gets corrupted when involved
with an anonymous method }
I think this may be true also for the case where Args is not marked as
const, but then the compiler doesn't complain at all.

The header, Winsock.pas should be updated for the Winsock 2.2

included in their stack.
The Winsock.pas file is still based on Winsock 1.1 which is over 16
years old. Winsock 2.2 was introduced in 1996 and was included in
Windows NT 4.0, as an optional addon for WIndows 95, and has
been included since then. Winsock 2.2 supports some things that
were not included in the Winsock 1.1 specification and supports
things such as layered service providers (LSP's), namespaces, IPv6
addresses, and various other stuff.
The only way that the Winsock 1.1 spefication file header works is
that there's a WInsock 1.1 compatability shim, and you are only using
the Winsock 1.1 subset of functions.

... uses ... Generics.Defaults, Variants, ...; ... procedure Test; var C:
IComparer<Variant>; V1, V2: Variant; C1, C2: Integer; begin C :=
TComparer<Variant>.Default; V1 := $FFFFFFFF;

C.Compare(2.1, 100); Assert((C1 = 0) and (C2 < 0)); end;
[QC Description]
TComparer<Variant> and TEqualityComparer<Variant> both use
some fundamentally wrong comparison technique: (this was copied
from Generics.Defaults)
function Compare_Variant(Inst: PSimpleInstance; Left, Right:
Pointer): Integer;
var
l, r: string;
begin
try
l := PVariant(Left)^;
r := PVariant(Right)^;
Result := Compare_UString(nil, l, r);
except
Result := BinaryCompare(Left, Right, SizeOf(Variant));
end;
end;
#1 When Left or Right is Null, first an exception is raised (stopping the
debugging of course), then it compares the two values binary, which
gives random result (since being Null means VType = varNull, and
the rest is to be ignored).
#2 When Left and Right are numbers, this comparison gives an
alphabetical ordering, which is totally wrong for numbers.
#3 When Left or Right contains a variant array, first the result is still
random, since the array data is at the location referenced by the
VArray field.
Please, correct this by calling VarCmp or some other working variant
comparison!

StrFormatByteSize maps to the Ansi function and uses a paramater

function StrFormatByteSize; external shlwapi32 name

Please note that the first parameter of the Ansi function needs a
DWORD, the first paramter of the Wide function needs a
LONGLONG.
Also the import of StrFormatByteSize64 looks really weird. The import
name with a % does not exist.

TBitmap = tagBITMAP;

BITMAP = tagBITMAP;
This means 1 byte alignment for TBitmap/tagBitmap because of
"packed" specificator.
It's wrong. The "packed" should be removed - making alignment of
this record to be 8 bytes, as indicated in Windows headers.

The function DwmSetIconicLivePreviewBitmap has a parameter

Delphi 7 MaxSingle is not a single
The potential for error is illustrated below.
program Test;
[QC Description]
The delphi help states under " MaxSingle constant" that
"The maximum value of the single precision floating point type."
... "is const MaxSingle: Single = 3.4e+38;"
This is incorrect, the actual code is "const MaxSingle = 3.4e+38;"
which means it is typed as an extended (I think).
3.4e+38, when stored in a single, gets rounded to 3.3999...e+38
Thus, the value of MaxSingle cannot actually be stored in a single at
all. It is also not the largest number you can store in a single, that is

TDictionary.ExtractPair Fails and creates memory leak
Download the attached test project and run it. It will report the errors.
It has two configurations - Standard and Fixed. In the Fixed
configuration the Dictionary is modified to work as I think it should.
[QC Description]
The documentation is a bit lacking on this function, but it seems
reasonable to assume that ExtractPair should reteurn the Key/Value
pair for the supplied Key.
Incidentally, the fix relies on access to private members of
TDictionary which should not work- so i think that is another minor
compiler bug.
Calling it with a valid key causes the key/value pair to be hidden from
the list, but does not return the values to the user. Furthermore, if the
dictionary is a TObjectDictionary set to own the Objects, the
reference to the object is lost, but the object is not freed so we get a
memory leak.

to get a Floating Point exception in the FillChar routine. There could be numerous other (less contrived) situations
leading to the same FPU state and exception.

Trying to use the TThreadedQueue (Generics.Collections) in a single

The idea is to push objects into a queue and let several worker

It does not work as expected, though. When two or more worker
threads are calling PopItem, access violations are thrown from the
TThreadedQueue.
If the call to PopItem is serialized with a critical section, all is fine.

This is a comment from QC
---I've attached a new project which reliably crashes under Windows
versions prior to Vista.
----
(JJS: The attached app doesn't reproduce for me. However, here are
Christian's comments from the original QC report.)
I have modified the code to call ReadLn at the end but to no avail.
The AV occurs only when running the process within the IDE
debugger. If I start the process outside the IDE everything runs fine.
That's the problem with racing conditions, I suppose. Perhaps the fact
that I develop on a Quad Core CPU has an inpact on the runtime
behaviour.
It seems there is a bug (actually two bugs) in
TInternalConditionVariable.RemoveWaiter.
Suppose the linked list of waiting threads contains the three entries
T1, T2 and T3 which have been added in this order. The linked list
looks like this:
H -> T3 -> T2 -> T1 -> T3
'H' stands for the pointer to the head of the queue (FWaitQueue field).
Please see 'qc78415.patch' attached.
>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
Bug 1: Removing the second item of the wait queue is not possible.
Cause: When removing a thread, the walker pointer actually starts at
the third entry (T1 in this case). Iteration stops however as soon as
the walker reaches the head of the queue (T3), which leaves T2
undetected.
Bug 2: The first item of the queue cannot be removed.
Cause: In case the first item is to be removed, just the pointer to the
head item is moved without updating the links. Hence the resulting
queue looks like this:
H -> T1 -> T3 -> T2 -> T1
Furthermore the head points to T1 while it should actually point to T2
since that item followed T3 in the original list.
I have attached a patch which can be applied to SyncObjs.pas that
corrects both of these issues.
1. Iteration now starts at the second item (T2) and stops at the first
(T3).
2. If the first item is removed, the new list now looks like this:
H -> T2 -> T1 -> T2

In Delphi RTL Tanh is calculated as sinh/tanh, which is mathmatically ClassName: EOverflow
right, but it fails on big numbers, for example:
Message: Floating point overflow
tanh(11990.045913)
Recompiling and rerunning with the .NET compiler produces the
expected result, namely PASS.
because sinh(11990.045913) is BIG. But tanh here just equals to 1.

just from the beginning of unit Math would ensure that any finite,
positive Single value would fall in range MinSingle through
MaxSingle, and same for types Double and Extended.
See Details on how to get numbers smaller than the pretended
minimums and larger than the maximums shown above.
Of course, there is a gigantic number of other floating point values
that fall outside unit Math's Min-Max ranges. My examples just show
the most extreme ones, i.e., these are the actual minimums and
maximums.
Since floating-point constants in Delphi always are Extended, the
definitions for Single and Double values need 20 significant digits (not
just 6, 14, or 18) in order to get the exact Extended equivalent of the
extreme Single and Double values. In a typed constant definition one
could do with fewer digits. However, typed constants are no constant
expressions to the compiler.

TTimeZone Returns Incorrect UtcOffset
Compare results of the following two functions. Before 11/14/2010,
the GetTimeZoneBias functions returns -240 and the
GetTimeZoneBiasD2007 function returns -300 in the US Eastern time
zone. The transition to EST occurred on 11/7/2010, not 11/14/2010.
function GetTimeZoneBias: Integer; var TimeZone: TTimeZone; begin
TimeZone := TTimeZone.Local; Result :=

TimeZoneInfo.StandardBias; TIME_ZONE_ID_DAYLIGHT: Result :=
TimeZoneInfo.Bias + TimeZoneInfo.DaylightBias; else Result := 0;
end; end;
[QC Description]
Under certain conditions the new TTimeZone object returns the
wrong UtcOffset. After switching from EDT to EST on 11/7/2010 the
TimeZone object still returns the -4 offset rather than -5. After
stepping through the code it looks like the existing code in DateUtils
will work correctly after 11/14/2010. D2007 and D2010 did not have
this problem.

[QC Description]
Attempting to get the text matched by a named group that does not
exist raises a very confusing "index out of bounds (-7)" exception
instead of a more accurate "named group does not exist" exception.
When TGroupCollection.GetItem in RegularExpressions.pas calls
FRegEx.NamedGroup it should check whether the result is -7 or
PCRE_ERROR_NOSUBSTRING. If it is, it should raise an exception
saying the named group does not exist rather than try to use -7 as a
group index.
The -7 value of the PCRE_ERROR_NOSUBSTRING constant is an
implementation detail of the RegularExpressionsAPI unit that should
not be exposed to the users of the RegularExpressions unit.

Undocumented Capability of Using TIndexOptions::ixUnique with
TClientDataSet::AddIndex
1) Create a TClientDataSet. 2) Activate it. 3) Call its AddIndex
method, setting the Options parameter to "TIndexOptions() <<
ixUnique". 4) Observe that no exception is thrown, and the unique
index is enforced. This method of indexing the TClientDataSet, by the
way, is handy for catching key violations locally, rather than letting the
DB catch them after calling TClientDataSet::ApplyUpdates. The
attached project should adequately demonstrate that this does work.
[QC Description]
The documentation for TClientDataSet::AddIndex states:
"Options is a (potentially empty) set that can include up to two
TIndexOptions values. The valid members for that set include
ixDescending...and ixCaseInsensitive.
Warning: AddIndex throws an exception if you attempt to create an
index that includes any other TIndexOptions values."
In "Understanding ClientDataSet Indexes" by Cary Jensen on the
Borland Community Site
(http://community.borland.com/article/0,1410,29056,00.html), it
states:
"The second [parameter] is the semicolon-separated list of the index
fields...Note, however, that only the ixCaseInsensitive, ixDescending,
and ixUnique TIndexOptions are valid when you invoke AddIndex.
Using any of the other TIndexOptions flags raises an exception. "
Indeed, ixUnique *can* be specified for Options without generating an
exception, and the TClientDataSet behaves as expected (a key value
exception is thrown by the TClientDataSet if a duplicate key value is
inserted).

Unable to clear a boolean option from an option-set in CB2010
- Create option set

[QC Description]
Sometimes it is necessary to clear a boolean option from a set which
means I don't want to change the value of the boolean option in any
way.
In CB2009 you could just press "Backspace" and the override would
be removed from the option set. In CB2010 "Backspace" does
nothing. In CB2010 you can only set the value to "false" or "true", but
you can't change it to 'no change'.
It seems there is no way to remove a "boolean" option from an option
set in CB2010.

Type in a valid place (for example into a for constructor: String

For example.
You write:
String hello=u"Hello World";
That AFAIK is a valid Unicode string in C++Builder and compiles ok.
Press Ctrl-D and the line converts in:
String hello = u "Hello World";
(note the space between 'u' and "Hello World")
After formatting this, compiler refuses compile giving "Undefined

'u'" error.
Prefixing an 'L' code formatter does not separate the L from the

IDE\Message View
Description:
Steps:
The XE IDE crashes when to many tool messages are generated for
the message view to handle. This becomes an issue with large C++
projects where large amount of warnings or if extended error info is
switched on, and if you have a large amount of projects in a project
group and large amount files per project, this can blow the limit of the
tools message away and it causes a IDE to AV.
1) Compile and attached package in the IDE and install....
2) it will hang while the messages are pushed into the message pane
3) then it will crash with an AV
The number of messages that are causing the problem should look
very familiar.
>>>>[32767] Test(1): test message<<<<
This seems a problem only with tool messages if you use
"AddTitleMessage(const MessageStr: string);" instead of"
AddToolMessage(...)" you can add lots more messages. Also worth
noting is that the package code that brings down XE runs without a
problem in CB2007! So there has been some regression...

Number of files that the plugin cached as already knowing didn't exist
in that location from a prior request Number of files that the plugin
cached as already knowing existed from a prior request Total number
of file requests. If you subtract the two cache counts from the Total,
that will leave you with the total number of _unique_ valid file

is the number of requests for the date/time of a file, and how many
were requests for dates that _weren't_ cached. If you subtract the two

4.Click on to finish and allow the IDE to recompile and create the new

UNITNAME is always "Form"
CONTAINERID is always empty (though this may be correct).
In addition "#pragma resource" has been changed so that you need
double '\\'s to represent a single '\'.
You will find the new project has only one form (probably the first
listed in your original project) and that double clicking the form in the

The 'RichEdit' example project shows some aspects of how broken
the ITE is. Each international project does at least have two forms

None of the ITE menu items appear in the IDE although it is listed as

1.They're both called "Form" in the Project Manager
2.You can't view/edit them as forms..only as DFMs.
FWIW if you build the project it does work but obviously in its current
state it would be a PITA to maintain.

The Translation Manager shows and translates no strings directly
coded in the sourcecode. (xy->Caption = "text";) It would be helpful to
get this translated without working with resource string tables and
constants to address them (and change thousands of lines of old,

If the include path is changed to place the current directory below the

The cause of the problem is the file "Search.h" with is in the project
directory (and included in Main.cpp). There is a "search.h" file in the
BDS\include directory which is called by other BDS header files, but
apparently the IDE uses the "Search.h" file from the project directory
instead of the one in the BDS\include directory.

TRttiContext Context; TRttiType *Type =
Context.GetType(__classid(TMemoryStream));
DynamicArray<TRttiProperty*> Properties = Type->GetProperties();
std::cout << Properties.Length << std::endl; return 0; } It is important
to disable "Build with runtime packages". When you run the
application it writes "3" in the console as TMemoryStream has 3
properties. Now try to remove the comment in front of the line with
__delphirtti(TStream). Now when you run the application it writes "1"
in the console. The properties Position and Size have disappeared.
[QC Description]
__delphirtti() on a class may remove access to some properties on

- Build (bcc32 -WCV qc86675.cpp) and run the following code: // ----#include <SysUtils.hpp> #include <cstdio> int main (void) { int i = 0;
Format (L"%d", ARRAYOFCONST ((i++))); std::printf (i == 1 ?

[QC Description]
In order to get the argument count, both OPENARRAY() and
ARRAYOFCONST() pass all arguments to a special template class
(OpenArrayCount<>). This implies that all arguments passed to
OPENARRAY() and ARRAYOFCONST() are evaluated twice. Here's
an example:
// ----#include <SysUtils.hpp>
#include <cstdio>
int main (void)
{
int i = 0;
Format (L"%d", ARRAYOFCONST ((i++)));
std::printf (i == 1 ? "PASS" : "FAIL");

AV when a Delphi record containing managed
data types is used as a function Result
======================================================================
This code is a simplified example of the same crash that occurs in QC #77431:
======================================================================
[QC Description]
When a Delphi record type containing
managed data types, such as interfaces or
strings, is used as a return type for a Delphi
function, an AV occurs if the function is called
in C++.
[MORE INFORMATION]
--- RecIntfCrash.pas --unit RecIntfCrash;
interface
type
TCrashRec = record
As in C++, a Delphi function returning a record
receives a hidden parameter with the address
of the destination. However, the Delphi function
assumes that the destination memory has been
initialized/cleared. Delphi does this via a call to
__InitializeRecord when a record variable is
declared. C++ does no initialization/clearing in
a statement like this:
PasRec r= GetRec();
Instead C++ relies on the fact that the callee
will copy [via the copy ctr] the results directly
into the hidden address passed [or, with RVO,
just construct the return object @ the hidden
address].
The Delphi function returning a record instead
invokes the _CopyRecord helper to copy the
source into the hidden address. This crashes
because _CopyRecord attempts to clear the
managed fields as they have non-zero values.
[WORKAROUND]
A possible workaround would be for the C++
side to use this instead:
PasRec r;
r = GetRec();
Data: IInterface;
Str: String;
class function Create: TCrashRec; static;
end;
implementation
class function TCrashRec.Create: TCrashRec;
begin
Result.Data := nil; // AV in _IntfClear() because Data is not initially zero
Result.Str := ''; // AV in UStrLAsg() because Str is not initially zero
end;
end.
--- Test.cpp --#include "RecIntfCrash.hpp"
{
TCrashRec r = TCrashRec::Create(); // AV because r is not initialized before jumping into
Create()
}

Variant assignment operators have several flaws
- downlad the attachment, compile and run self_assignment.cpp ------------- #include <cstdio> #include <vcl.h> #pragma hdrstop #include
<tchar.h> int _tmain(void) { Variant v1, v2 = "foo"; v1 = v2; v2 = v2;
std::printf ((v1 == v2) ? "PASS" : "FAIL"); } -------------- Expected
output: "PASS" Actual output: "FAIL"
[QC Description]
There is a number of problems with the assignment operators in the
EMUVCL Variant classes:
- they are not exception-safe, i.e. the data in the object being
assigned to is lost if the assigment fails
- they do not check for self-assignment, which means that selfassignment results in data loss
- they duplicate all the code in the constructor overloads. And sure
enough, there are several cases where the assignment operator and
the copy constructor are misaligned.
- the Variant classes usually don't check the result of the
::VariantCopy() and ::VariantChangeType()
My proposition is to solve all these problems at once by introducing
swap() methods and use the "copy & swap" idiom to implement the
assignment operator overloads.
The attachment contains a test case for the second problem (selfassignment) and a set of patches for sysvari.h, utilcls.h and
variant.cpp which address all of the problems listed above.
The self-assignment problem has also been mentioned in QC
#93966.

symbol @%Foo$i%@$barow$xqv has zero size, or excessive offset

against whatever generated the .obj: the linker is simply reporting "Oh
no, you won't get me to fixup to this: something's wrong here!". Before
the linker added this check, it would proceed and then fail later,
causing some error that lead one to believe that the culprit was the
linker. So, I'm glad about this particular addition: during the beta cycle
it caught lots of bad .objs generated by DCC32 (specially for
generics); it seems that now it's catching bad .objs generated by
BCC32 for the new import/export logic we've put in XE.

However, BCC doesn't emit the new type info fields, primarily the
PropDataEx and ClassAttrData fields. It is understandable that BCC
doesn't fully support the new RTTI features such as attributes right
now, but it should at least zero out the new fields - right now the type
info generated by BCC is simply wrong, and all code that tries to read
in all type info fields simply crashes.
To demonstrate the failure, I've attached a test case that simply reads
out and skips above fields. It works fine for DCC-built type info but, as
expected, it runs into AVs when consuming BCC-generated type info.
In addition, once QC's #76875 and #76877 are fixed, I think Rtti.pas
will form another good test case for this problem.

[QC Description]
Assuming you have a simple managed record, and a function which
returns an instance of it:
// ----type
TManagedRecord = record
ManagedField: String;
end;
function GetManagedRecord: TManagedRecord;
begin
Result.ManagedField := 'Foo';
end;
// ----When calling GetManagedRecord(), the caller passes a reference to
a temporary TManagedRecord which is being represented by 'Result'.
When calling from Delphi code, DCC will make the caller initialize this
temporary record to zero. IOW, upon entering GetManagedRecord(),
Result.ManagedField is always initialized to nil.
Unfortunately this isn't the case when calling the function from C++
code. C++ doesn't know an implicit 'Result' variable; the caller
expects the callee to initialize the temporary record if needed.
This basically means that you can't invoke Delphi-written functions
returning managed records from C++ code.

[QC Short Description]
Use of boost::shared_ptr breaks exception unwinding in constructors
The attached project files demonstrate the problem. The main
function (test.cpp) is int _tmain(int argc, _TCHAR* argv[]) { try { X x;
x.f(); } catch (const std::exception& e) { std::cout << e.what() <<

implementation. The header file for the class can be something like
boost::shared_ptr<Impl> impl; }; The implementation is in x.cpp: struct
X::Impl { Impl(); ~Impl(); }; X::Impl::Impl() { std::cout << "X::Impl
#include <boost/shared_ptr.hpp>
ctor\n"; } X::Impl::~Impl() { std::cout << "X::Impl dtor\n"; } X::X() :
impl(new Impl()) { std::cout << "X ctor\n"; throw
class X {
std::runtime_error("could not construct X"); } X::~X() { std::cout << "X
public:
dtor\n"; } void X::f() { std::cout << "X::f\n"; throw
X();
std::runtime_error("problem in X::f"); } Building and running this
private:
program with C++Builder 2010 generates the (correct) output: >
struct Impl;
X::Impl ctor > X ctor > X::Impl dtor > could not construct X But with
boost::shared_ptr<Impl> impl;
C++Builder XE the output is: > X::Impl ctor > X ctor > Assertion failed:

varType->tpClass.tpcDtorAddr, file xx.cpp, line 3285 > Abnormal
program termination Some other points: 1. If all the code is placed in
By using boost::shared_ptr, the Impl structure does not need to be
a single file (e.g. test.cpp), the assertion disappears. (But, of course,
defined in the header file. However, in C++Builder XE, an exception
this is not very useful for hiding the implementation!) 2. If the
thrown in the constructor of X will result in an exception unwinding
exception is not thrown in the constructor, but in some other member
assertion, and program termination. This did not occur in C++ Builder function, there is no problem. This can be demonstrated by
2010.
commenting out the constructor exception throw in the example. 3.
QC Entry 89260
The same exception unwinding assertion is raised if the Impl class is
left totally undefined, and the X constructor is changed to X::X() {
std::cout << "X ctor\n"; throw std::runtime_error("could not construct
X"); } Once again, this causes no such problem in C++Builder 2010.

Stack unwinding results in a non-constructed base class's destructor
being called
1. Build the attached source file. 2. Run it with a nonexistent directory
as its command-line parameter. 3. Note that it throws a
boost::filesystem exception (as expected) then crashes with an
access violation while trying to unwind the stack from the
boost::filesystem exception. The debugger indicates that the
exception is within boost::filter_iterator's DosWildcardMatcher's

[QC Description]
An exception thrown by a parameter to a base class's constructor
may result in the base class's destructor being called, even though
the base class has not been constructed. This is a violation of the

[QC Description]
Long include file names are truncated to 8 characters and looked up
again if an exact match is not found when used in pre-compiled
headers. This does not happen after #pragma hdrstop or with
precompiled headers turned off.
Attached code:
#include <iostream_is_what_i_want> // line 1
#pragma hdrstop // line 2
#include <iostream_is_what_i_want> // line 3
int main()
{
std::ostream o;
return 0;
}
[Original description]
The following code compiles with no errors in both CB2010 and
CB2006 with precompiled headers turned on (note the name of the
included file on line 2).
<iostream_is_what_i_want> that does not exist. 6) Uncommenting
line 1 (#pragma hdrstop) will result in copiler error E2209 Unable to
open include file 'iostream_is_what_i_want' as one would expect. 7)
With line 1 commented out and line 3 uncommented you get the error
E2209 Unable to open include file 'what_wou.h' 8) With line 1
uncommented and line 3 uncommented you get here the error E2209
Unable to open include file 'what_would_be_included_here'
//#pragma hdrstop // line 1
#include <iostream_is_what_i_want> // line 2
//#include <what_would_be_included> // line 3
int main(int, char* argv)
{
std::ostream o;
return 0;
}
It looks like if the compiler cuts the include names to 8 chars and
adds .h automatically, if precompiled headers are turned on (line 1
then includes iostreams.h, which succeeds).

TComponentList::TComponentList(bool) can't be found
1) Compile a project containing the following code: TComponentList*
foo = new TComponentList(true); 2) Observe error described.
[QC Description]
The documentation for TComponentList::TComponentList states that
a bool can be passed in the constructor for the value of OwnsObjects.
However, when a constructor with a bool is used, the following error
is received:
E2285 Could not find a match for
'TComponentList::TComponentList(bool)
I suppose this report could be classified as a documentation issue,
rather than a VCL issue, depending on your point of view. One or the
other had to be chosen, though.
<sysop>
The help for BDS doesn't have any documentation for the
constructor(s)
The following is the help from BCB6
Creates and initializes a TComponentList.
__fastcall TComponentList(void);
__fastcall TComponentList(bool AOwnsObjects);
Description
TComponentList creates a TComponentList instance. If no parameter
is specified, or if the constructor is called with the true parameter, the
new TComponentList is initialized with OwnsObjects set to true.
Do not call TComponentList directly. Instead, use the new keyword.

DCC doesn't emit underlying enum types
To bypass inclusion of Db.hpp on a header, try to use
namespace Db { // #include <DB.hpp> enum TLocateOption :
BYTE; } using Db::TLocateOption; it won't compile (type
mismatch?). There is no way on the C++ specs to forward
declare an enum it we do not specify it's underlying type.
[QC Description]
Forward declaration for enums generated by the delphi compiler is not
currently possible because it's underlying type is missing. This could have
been implemented since D2009, because of it's partial support for C++0x
(which brought that feature into the C++ realm).
Currently it's still not possible to forward declare some enums from the
VCL like TFieldType, TFieldKind, TLocateOption because auto generated
hpp's do not propagate their underlying type as in:
enum TFieldType : BYTE { ftUnknown, (...), ftSingle };
enum TFieldKind : BYTE { fkData, fkCalculated, fkLookup, fkInternalCalc,
fkAggregate };
enum TLocateOption : BYTE { loCaseInsensitive, loPartialKey };
This really would open the way to have extremely clean and lean headers
(and way faster compilations).

bcc32 -tCV 276923.cpp
Improve support for Delphi records in C++
exp: clean compile/run
[QC Description]
- Delphi doesn't have the notion of a "default constructor"; for
records, the default is to initialize all managed fields to 0 (which
is done via RTTI). Unfortunately this means that the compiler won't
generate a default constructor for records in C++ header files, which
is problematic especially when the record defines constructors with
arguments. TValue takes it to the extreme: it only has a private
constructor. Right now there's no clean way to instantiate TValue in
C++ code.
Suggestion: Have DCC generate a public default constructor for
every
record. It's as simple as this:
// ----__fastcall [!RecordName] (void) {}
// -----

RTL\C++\Exception Handling
Description:
Steps:
[QC Short Description]
type_info_hash doesn't free names and thereby causes memory
leaks
The description should cover it sufficiently.
[QC Description]
In xxtype.cpp, all type_info_hash functions are registered in a global
hash table which is freed by FreeHashTab() to prevent CodeGuard
from reporting memory leaks. However, type_info_hash doesn't free
its member "name", which can be set by type_info::name().
Fix:
// ----...
// This is the new version that allocates type_info structures on the
heap
// and deals with delphi classes as well
class type_info_hash : public type_info
{
public:
void *vmt;
type_info_hash *next;
mutable char *name;
type_info_hash(void *_tpp, void *_vmt, type_info_hash *_next) :
type_info((tpid *)_tpp)
{
vmt = _vmt;
next = _next;
name = 0;
}
+
+ ~type_info_hash (void)
+{
+ delete [] name;
+}
};

[QC Short Description]
Access violation when using streams in Form destructor
This issue has been discussed and confirmed at newsgoup
borland.public.cppbuilder.language.cpp (post 51781 and followups)
QC Entry 53592
1) Start BCB2006 2) Create a VCL Forms Application. 3) Leave the
form 4) Make sure that the main form Form1 is autocreated 5) Paste
the following code over the main form's cpp code (Unit1.cpp):
#include <vcl.h> #pragma hdrstop #include <string> #include
<fstream> #include <io.h> #include <locale> #include "Unit1.h"
#pragma package(smart_init) #pragma resource "*.dfm" TForm1
*Form1; using namespace std; __fastcall
TForm1::TForm1(TComponent* Owner) : TForm(Owner) { // use
implementation defined locale setlocale( LC_ALL, "" ); // C functions
locale::global(locale("")); // C++ STL } __fastcall TForm1::~TForm1() {
std::ofstream ofs("temp.txt"); std::string s("tempstring"); ofs << s; }
void __fastcall TForm1::FormClose(TObject *Sender, TCloseAction
&Action) { // } 6) Go to the project options and set: Linker/Linking/Use
dynamic RTL Off Linker/Linking/Full debug info [-v] On 7) Build the
application and run it. 8) Close the form (Windows standard button or
Alt+F4) - ends up with 'access violation .... write of address....' Or use
the attached BCB2006 project to reproduce the error.

Using STL output streams in main Forms destructor causes "Access

wmemset function Illegal floating point op
Run the following program to reproduce: #pragma hdrstop #include
<wchar.h> #pragma argsused int wmain(int argc, wchar_t* argv[]) {
wchar_t data[1024] ; wmemset(data, 0xfff5, 556) ; return 0; }
[QC Description]
Calling wmemset function in CC32110MT.dll with some arguments
gives illegal floating point operation exception. This happens under
both Windows XP and Windows 7 and on different systems, so I
conclude it is a bug in the RTL.
[the same program ran under Visual C++ 2008 without problem]

RTL\C++\Threads
Description:
Steps:
Memory leak due to the different threading models used in the VCL
and the RTL.
bcc32 -tCV -tM 77393.cpp
77393.exe
This can cause *massive* leakage if a C RTL function is called that
caches thread-specific data.
bcc32 -tCV -tM -DBUG 77393.cpp
77393.exe
Example:
use task manager to view memory usage (You should see memory
increasing while running until the process ends).
strtok (_tcstok) in STRTOK.C
has the line
#ifdef _MT
save = (_TCHAR **)&_thread_data()->thread_token;
#else
This will allocate some "static" thread data via "_thread_data_new"
(see THRDDATA.C). The problem now is that as part of the VCL
threading code (TThread in Classes.pas and BeginThread,
EndThread in System.pas) there is no call to either of _endthread,
_endthreadex, or _unadopt_thread.
And that will cause leakage of sizeof(THREAD_DATA) bytes (see
_THREAD.H) each time a VCL thread calling in .Execute any C
function that uses this "static" thread data is created + destroyed,
because the "static" thread data allocated implicitly via the call to
_thread_data will never be freed.
This obviously is not limited to TThread, but also
System::BeginThread and System::EndThread.
Note increase in memory usage not observed when _beginthread is
used.
I suspect that the best fix is to provide a transition layer for
System::BeginThread and System::EndThread for C++ code that
unadopts the thread so that the "static" thread data managed by the C
RTL is freed.
