In 2006, Borland’s developer tools section was transferred from Borland to a wholly owned subsidiary known as Code Gear, which was sold to Embarcadero Technologies in 2008.
In 2015, Embarcadero was purchased by Idera, but the Embarcadero mark was retained for the developer tools division. Delphi uses the Pascal-based programming language called Object Pascal introduced by Borland, and compiles Delphi source code into native x86 code.
Method Sections (user and/or non-user owned) internally still exist but are expanded when viewing or editing the method.
In most cases non-user owned code sections (like property access method and "inherited call" sections) are auto converted to user-code whenever the code is modified and saved.
This is normally a set of simple routines which open the main form and any other forms that are set to be opened automatically and then starts the program by calling the Initialize, Create Form and Run methods of the global Application object (which is actually a form of zero width and height, so it never actually appears on the screen).
The multi-device designer is open with a number of controls, including a native Windows button control and some non-visual components. Delphi's compilers use their own Object Pascal dialect of Pascal and generate native code for several platforms: Windows (x86 and x64), OS X (32-bit only), i OS (32 and 64-bit), Android and Linux (64-bit Intel).
This new version of the JCL is mainly a bugfix release.
RAD Studio is a shared host for Delphi and C Builder, and can be purchased with either or both.
Simply put, a Delphi project is a collection of files that make up an application.
What this means is that each project is made of one or more Form files (files with the extension) and one or more Unit files (extension).
We can also add resource files, and they are compiled into . Each project is made up of a single project file (.dpr).
Project files contain directions for building an application.
